The classic afternoon rain almost ruined the day but the streets dried quick and Indigenous Day/Go Skate Day contests were on! Starting at the Plaza then hitting the streets, first Millennium then Woodsworth, then off to West Brodway Skatepark for a few mini-comps. Julian Hein was surprised with an honorary Sk8 Skates pro-model and the day was done.

Sk8 Skates drops STONE COLD on the Thrasher Mag site featuring Erik Penton, Fane Smeall, Issiah Parisian, Sean Coughlin and Kian Smeall. Filmed and edited by Kian Smeall.
In memory of Tyson Hobson.
The goal of DWT has always been to promote and spread skating which is why I’m super pumped to announce that DWT will be stocked in all Louis Riel high school libraries and select elementary schools in Winnipeg. Skating has changed my life and hopefully though the mag, others will find it as well!
Due to the cold weather delaying the skate season, I’ve decided to postpone the issue. The next edition will be in fall 2022. All this means is more time to stockpile and refine content, as opposed to a rushed and poor quality issue. Though there won’t be an issue this spring, I have lots of things planned, from clothing drops, events, meetups and video projects. As well, I have some exciting plans for this fall issue, something DWT and Winnipeg has never seen before…

Thanks to all the shops who have supported DWT so far, and all others who support skateboarding. Our local shops are the core of the skateboarding community. DWT would be nowhere near where it is now if it wasn't for local shops. Happy Skateshop Day!
