Falcon Bowse T-Shirt Transformation Program KICKSTARTER

Falcon Bowse is not only a brand but since conception, they've strived to work hand-in-hand with other skateboarders and independently owned brands/stores. Falcon Bowse offers small quantity custom orders with no minimums, a service most manufactures refuse. Offering a reasonable alternative to small business owners and start-ups who just can't afford a 1000 piece minimum order that some factories, even in the U.S. require. This could be directly contributing to our dependence on less expensive overseas manufacturing. It seems funny to talk about these things in regards to just making a few hats or shirts but they believe that these are just one of many fundamental steps in the right direction. They're goal for Falcon Bowse is to be synominous with superior quality, made in the U.S.A. and with fair and green practices. Whether it's one of they're pieces or one of they're collaborating brands, you can trust that it was hand-made in a sustainable manner, one at time with passion and the utmost regard for style, quality and affordability.

Wounded Knee, Montana Pool Service & Stronghold Society

Montana Pool Service is a skate company created by Jeff Ament, bass player and co-founder of Pearl Jam

In late 2011, Jeff and Vitalogy Foundation teamed up with Jim Murphy, Mark Hubbard, Walt Pourier (from Stronghold Society), Vans, Wounded Knee Skateboards, The Tony Hawk Foundation and other supporters to join the Pine Ridge community in building a world-class skatepark on the Native American reservation.

Wounded Knee Skateboards worked on a deck with Montana Pool Service to promote and educate about the tribes in the Montana area and ultimately, help in supplying decks to skaters on the reservations. There are two decks in this collaboration available... one is a 9" wide, 16" wheel-base square-tail, the other a 8.25" wide, 14" wheel-base round-tail deck, both with punk points. 

Vans made a video with Jeff about his involvement with helping to build skateparks on the Pine Ridge Reservation below.  Also, watch Stronghold Society's, "Skate Life On An Indian Reservation"... two of the best videos I've seen about educating, building and working in positivity to build a community of support through skateboarding. Thank You! 



Shown below is the 8.25" wide; 32.75" length; 14" wheel-base; round-tail Montana Pool Service x Wounded Knee deck.  Also available, the 9" x 34"; 16" wheel-base; square-tail in the Mini Skate Shop. Get all Wounded Knee decks and shirts at the Wounded Knee online shop HERE. All of their decks are made in Maine, USA... the best boards you can ride.
