Treehouse By Bobby Asato In Honolulu, Hawaii

Good friend, Bobby Asato recently opened a new store in Honolulu, Hawaii called the, "Treehouse."  Aptly named as it's on the second floor of Ward Center. When you're in Hawaii, this should be on your list of destination spots. You'll find Jef Hartsel's EZ-Ryder Originalz skateboards amongst children's educational items and Bobby's finely curated product selections.  

Bobby and Hartsel were also featured in Blue Magazine No. 26

Jef Hartsel in Fourstar's "Hawaii Four-0"

At 1:55 into the Fourstar Hawaii Four-0 tour video, Jef Hartsel shown slashing Kuykendall with a frontside grind.  All-style...!  Harts' layback grind from this trip was featured in their Wallride catalog that I posted a few months back.  

Contrast Magazine 07

Mark Kushimi sent a stack of the latest Contrast Magazine, issue 07 and within its pages, a full-page Solitary Arts ad, along with a double spread of Jef Hartsel (holding his EZ-Ryder Koa Complete) and an editorial-photo of Connor McGivern, who's rocking the SA Moon sticker on his top-deck. Mahalo to Kushimi!

Solitary Arts x ACE TRUCK MFG

As many of you know, we're proud to use ACE TRUCKS exclusively on our personal setups (Jef Hartsel, Bob Lake, Geoff McFetridge, and Yong-Ki Chang at the Solitary Arts all ride ACE's).   Today, we're honored to offer you 7 various sizes in the ACE family from 00's to 66's!  Thanks to Shrewgy and Joey Tershay for their constant support.  

Geoff McFetridge created a Solitary Arts x ACE TRUCK MFG shirt in celebration.  Handmade on 100% organic cotton shirts with water-based ink.  Fits like an American Apparel shirt but these are organic Econscious shirts that we used for this run.  Check our Mini Skate Shop for the trucks and our T-Shirt Shop for these very limited, hand-screened tee's.
