    Design Levi Huffman’s Next Deck 

    BoardPusher sponsored rider, Levi Huffman, is looking for a new deck design and we’re looking to you to create it for him.  Levi will hand pick his favorite design and it will be featured in various media outlets with your name attached to it.  The best part is you will receive a free deck with your design.  And now to get a feel for the person you are designing for, here’s some info about Levi Huffman:

    HOMETOWN
    Wheat Ridge (White Rich), Colorado

    SETUP
    8.0″ BoardPusher Levi Decks, Indy Trucks, BoardPusher and Diabolical Wheels, Black Panther Bearings.

    HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SKATING?
    My mom bought me a skateboard for my 1st birthday so I have pretty much had one around my whole life.  My friend David’s big brother Doug got us really into it.  He’s the one that made it look like fun to me.  Now I have been skating seriously for about 11 maybe 12 years.

    INSPIRATION
    Living, my daughters Stella & Ravenna, and the rest of my Family.

    FAVORITE TRICK
    My favorite trick would have to be a Benihana because a lot of people hate on that trick and not many people do them.

    ADVICE FOR YOUNG SKATERS
    Skate for Life and love every second of it.  Don’t take anything for granted.  Always wear a helmet it could save your life.

    FAVORITE VIDEO
    The End.

    OTHER SPONSORS
    Bern, Globe, Lit Apparel, Diabolical Skate Shop

    ODDEST SKATE SPOT
    Work after hours in the warehouse.  Couldn’t resist the pushcart and other goodies to grind.

    STRANGEST MOMENT ON A SKATE TRIP
    Coming out of The King of The Road party and into a scene out of a B Theater Movie.  Crazed street bum had a knife out and was going after Daewon Song as our wheel man Vendola was taking the bum from the side.  It was very strangely surreal.

    FUNNIEST MOMENT WITH A BOARDPUSHER EMPLOYEE
    (As I asked this I thought about getting nailed with a spit wad during Levi’s entrance today.) I don’t know, too many antics to count.

    FAVORITE CARTOON THEME SONG TO SKATE TO OTHER THAN TMNT
    (No answer, just continuously played theme songs from his phone ranging from Rescue Rangers to Ren & Stimpy.  Then a challenge ensued over how fast we could recognize sitcom theme songs.)

    CLASSIEST REST/TRUCK STOP EXPERIENCE
    One road trip I got stuck in a driving daze and was the only one who could drive.  Pulled in to get a cup off coffee and lost $50 somehow in the process.  Most expensive cup to date.

    BEST HISTORICAL FIGURE NOT KNOWN FOR ART THAT WOULD MAKE THE BEST SKATEBOARD GRAPHICS
    Buffalo Bill due to his gnarly beard and endless supply of blood to paint with.

    LEVI RANDOM FUN FACTS
    Can’t smell,  can only taste hot sauce,  Funyuns are a favorite snack,  likes lasers, but not the womp womp,  doesn’t know what a “Skrillex” is, has a tattoo of a Ninja Turtle to show his undying love for TMNT, has never worn Levi’s,  has a taxidermy Bongo that ended up being the centerpiece of his basement bar.

    Watch Levi Tear It Up
    [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwCtd9D16TY%5D

    NOW THAT YOU KNOW LEVI BETTER HERE’S HOW TO ENTER

    1. Upload your design on an 8 inch deck here.
    2. Click “Finish Deck” and paste the link to our facebook page.

    LINKS TO DESIGN SWAG
    Feel free to use any, all, some, or none of this to aid you in your design for Levi’s Graphic.  We have included links to some BoardPusher logos if you decide to go that route, but we don’t want you to think that you have to use them to win.  Designing for Levi’s size of an 8 inch deck might help though.

    1. 8 inch deck template

    2. Boardpusher full logo on Black

    3. Boardpusher full logo on Clear

    4. Boardpusher BP logo on Clear

    Entries must be submitted by April 16th.

    Good Luck and have fun, cause Levi always does!  He is stoked to see what YOU come up with!

    Go Green for Earth Day! 

    April 22nd is Earth Day. Here are some skate themed suggestions about how you can be ‘green’ this Earth Day.

    Stay ‘green’ and design your deck for Earth Day here: https://www.boardpusher.com/bp/design/

    Recycle/Reuse:
    Make something out of that old skateboard instead of throwing it away. Check out these ‘new’ things made from ‘old’ skateboards.
    http://greenopolis.com/goblog/green-groove/10-cool-ways-recycle-skateboards

    Shop local:
    Shopping local keeps money in your community. It also saves resources needed to ship goods around the world. Check this list for custom skateboards near you.
    https://www.boardpusher.com/BP/shop/local-skateboards.aspx

    Conserve natural resources:
    Skateboard to school or work instead of driving. Not only is skateboarding a fun way to get where you’re going, but it’s also good for your health and saves gas.

    Other BoardPusher News:
    Now you can share deck designs with friends on Facebook! Just click the ‘like’ button when viewing designs to post into your Facebook status. Like us on Facebook here if you don’t already.

    More Earth Day Tips/Facts:

    • Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. As much as 85 percent of the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water.
    • Unplug appliances when you’re not using them. Or, use a “smart” power strip that senses when appliances are off and cuts “phantom” or “vampire” energy use.
    • Recycled paper requires 64% less energy than making paper from virgin wood pulp, and can save many trees.
    • It takes 90% less energy to recycle aluminum cans than to make new ones.
    • One gallon of motor oil can contaminate up to 2 million gallons of water. So dispose of properly!
    • 14 billion pounds of trash is dumped into the ocean every year.
    • The energy we save when we recycle one glass bottle is enough to light a traditional light bulb for four hours.
