I WANT TO SKATE LIKE ANNE I WANT TO LIVE LIKE ANNE
We thought it would be appropriate to make this year's Ultraskate shirt with environmentally conscious materials. Using recycled plastic bottles and sustainably farmed bamboo fabric, because we know the Palmers would want it that way.
Read more about Anne in our latest SkateIDSA newsletter - the inspiration she gave us and the impact she left on distance skateboarding.
Did you participate in our 2020 SDSR? You can check your results on the OFFICIAL SkateIDSA Webscorer. We're cooking up a whole new tour this year to keep our members across the globe tuned into the world of distance skateboarding and CAN'T WAIT to send you the invite.
