March 13, 2013On Tuesday, March 12th, George Powell and Stacy Peralta gave a factory tour to Ryan Page and his son, Jack. The other two guests that were going to come with them were unable to make it. During the launch of the film, two factory tours were offered. Ryan purchased one of the tours from the Bones Brigade site. Stacy, George, Jack, and Ryan headed to the deck department first. George and Stacy gave some good descriptions about what goes into putting a skateboard deck together. Ryan and Jack were shown how the edges of the decks are sanded down smoothly. Jack got to use the "Guillotine". It's used to test the strength of our boards. We were lucky enough to come into the screening area to see how it's done. The secret room of our screened transfers. Now to the wheel department. George explains wheel molds to Ryan and Jack. Jack tried to use all of his strength to break apart the wheel shavings. He gave up in the end. They were shown what goes into printing the graphics onto our wheels. Last stop was the art department. They got to see plenty of cool ideas and projects to come.

March 8, 2013On Monday, March 4th George Powell and Stacy Peralta gave a factory tour to Warren Currie and his family. During the launch of the film, two factory tours were offered. Warren purchased one of the tours from the Bones Brigade site. Warren owns the skateshop Easy Rider in Edmonton, AB Canada, and also hosted a screening of the film. Starting the tour off with a meeting in the conference room. From left to right: Trey, Griffin, Angela, Warren, George and Stacy. It was decided that we would first go to see how the boards are made. Stacking the plys together to make a deck. George explaining the differences between constructions and concaves. Sanding the edges before the rails are sealed. Stacy was shooting with Warren's camera. We were battling for better angles for the majority of the day. Skate One is the first to use 3D screens to screen decks, that we know of. Lunch Break. Happily waiting for the meal to be served. Stopped by Research and Development to talk to Chris Iverson. You might recognize him from Future Primitive.. George laying out the process that goes into the wheel production. The best way to cool down wheels that are fresh out of the oven is by placing them on the ground. Remember, heat rises! Printing the graphics on the wheels. The bags on the left are wheels that need to be printed. Last stop was the art department. Stacy caught up with some old friends while George gave a few sneak peeks of projects to come.
