Hockey- Imbalance (NIK STAIN) 8.25
Hockey Skateboards was launched by Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen to house an overfill of talented skaters that couldn't fit within the sister-brand Fucking Awesome. It quickly developed its own style with a perfectly suited team of like minded characters in Donovon Piscopo, John Fitzgerald, Andrew Allen, Ben Kadow. More recently, Hockey added Paris's own Kevin Rodrigues ams in Caleb Barnett and Diego Todd.
Referring back the creativitity and iconography, the Jason Voorhees 'Friday the 13th' Hockey mask is now synonymous with their gothic horror style. This is where the Hockey tagline Eyes Without A Face originates. Hockey also has a straight-up no-nonsense skateboarding narrative, which shines through in their video output. Their last video, Killshot was part of a Nike SB shoe collaboration project headed up by Donovon Piscopo and John Fitzgerald.
