Red Dragon X Skull Skates Release recap


When we heard our friends at the Red Dragons and Skull Skates were getting ready to release a killer Skull Skates X RDS Collection, we were pretty stoked. When we got the call to be apart of the official release party at RDS headquarters in Vancouver,BC , We were totally honored!

These two iconic brands have been spearheading the British Columbian Skate scene for so long, they’re practically household names, so an epic colab between the two just makes sense.



The legendary Vinyl Ritchie was on hand spinning tunes throughout the day, with a special guest appearance by DJ Layback.

Plenty of epic vintage RDS and Skull Skates gear was on display from years past.

Attendees got a chance to pick up the brand new RDS X Skull Skates colab gear including Tees, Hoodies, and limited edition skate decks.

An unknown ripper giving the new RDS DIY Barriers a go.

They had that new Cariboo Granny Smith Apple Cider on Hand too!

BC’s Mike McKinlay with a clean backside smith grind on the RDS Barriers.

Big Thanks: Dave Boyce, Moses, P.D, Jeff Cole, RDS and Skull Skates, and to everyone who stopped by Centre Distribution for a boo, to shred, or to just check this epic colab. You can find it in local core skate shops now!
