Darkstar Wood Releases Chet Thomas Pro Model
Darkstar has released a pro-model deck for founder and team pro Chet Thomas. Joining Thomas to complete the Darkstar deck team will be pro Ryan Kenreich and am Guy Kampfen. Darkstar, maker of Master Urethane and Dual Durometer wheels, has been making logo boards since the beginning of the year, with the summer selection including six models. The Thomas Calvary board will be available August 1 with the Kenreich model not far behind.
On the wheel front, Darkstar welcomes Colt Cannon to its am team, and a pro wheel for Ryan Kenreich will be available in September. Although Thomas, Kenreich, and Kampfen will cross over on both wood and wheels, the Darkstar wheel team will be separate from the Darkstar wood team. Information on both the Darkstar wood and urethane programs can be found online at darkstarwheels.com and darkstarwood.com.
Darkstar products are available from Dwindle Distribution (dwindledistribution.com), which also distributes A-Team, Axion Footwear, Blind, Deca, Speed Demons, and Tensor Products.
The Deca and Blind teams are spending their summer touring various regions of the Earth. Check out blindreaper.com to see some of the photos from a recent trip to the UK and Germany by the Blind team. Look for footage of the Deca tour throughout Europe on both decaskateboards.com and antix.com.
Over at the foundry, Tensor trucks are now available in both 5.0 and 5.25 sizes, and come in a variety of colors with more on the way just in time for the holiday season. Tensor has added teamriders Salman Agah, Chris Cole, and Dave Mayhew to its team. Look for a new Tensor truck tool to be available in September. Also Tensor is currently working on a new model for production. It won’t be ready for release at ASR in September, but keep an eye out for the new truck to debut closer to the holiday season.
