Super excited for the official Primitive Skate / Dragon Ball Z collaboration! Available in stores and online at primitiveskate.com May 1 2018.
The first time I saw Wade Desaemo skate was his part in “It’s Official” when he skated to “Stomp” by “Young Buck” back in ’06. What caught my eye was the precise way the maneuvers were done, he did everything so crispy and picture perfect, but his posture was so casual. He’s the type of skater that when you watch him, you get really drawn in to him and his style and he’s been one of my favorites ever since that part. You know Wade has always been out there killing it, but he’s very picky on what he wants to put out there, so when his footage finally comes out, it’s always really exciting to see; everyone anticipates his footage specifically because he’s so protective over what gets out and I respect that. Whenever I have had the chance to skate with Wade, it’s always been a fun time and it always felt really natural to have him on the session. I think Wade is a perfect fit on Primitive and I would like to thank him for wanting to be on the team, we’re very proud and happy to have a skater of his caliber along with the rest of the crew and we look forward to everything that he has instore. Welcome to the Primitive Skateboarding team Wade!” 📷 Oliver Barton
I had a blast in Nashville, TN thank you to Sixth Ave Skatepark and everyone for the hospitality!
Robert Neal is a smart kid, who stays out of trouble and is funny as hell, he’s been with us on so many trips and skated so many demos with us, I think that the kids see him as part of the team already anyway and so it came time to make it official. When the people are demanding it, usually that’s when it’s time to make it official so here it is, Robert Neal: welcome to the Primitive Skateboarding team. Officially!
I had fun with the crew in Texas. Check out the video above.
“Since Primitive Skate’s inception, each Primitive pro’s first board has had a graphic that represents their spirit animal. Don Pendleton has been one of my favorite artists for as long as I can remember; his artwork has always been iconic and usually centered around the animal kingdom, so when we started talking about having a guest artist reinvent our animals, Don was the first person who came to mind. I’m excited to announce that initial idea has come to life in the form of the Pendleton Zoo”

It’s essential to make sure the photographer’s camera is always clean.
