Our Newest Hockey & FA Collection is a Heavy Drop

We've just had a big box of planks and swagger from Hockey and FA.

Hockey have blessed us with a colourful bunch of 10+ boards, a few tees and a hood. Check out the new range of Hockey decks here

If you're feeling a bit of colour as the sun starts to come out of hiding, we've got the blue or purple tee. If not, no stress. There's the 'Battered Faith' tee, a grey tee with a rad eerie graphic. 

Not kidding yourself on the weather yet? Check out the clean white long sleeve and the heavyweight hood thats in.

We've also got a bunch of new decks from FA. They keep to their standard of unique, art styled decks with the shovel noses. Check out the new FA decks HERE

Some real out-there graphics on the new FA tees too, with 2 crews to go with it. A black clean-cut one and a dark red one that will stand out a little.

Hockey Skateboards started as a sister company to Fucking Awesome with the focus on two gnarly skaters, Donovon Piscopo and John Fitzgerald. Anthony Van Engelen said of the idea of the brand name “If you skate with those dudes, they are so gnarly… it’s kind of brutal, kind of like Hockey.” AVE and Jason Dill came up with the idea for Hockey around  the time they left Alien Workshop to focus on FA and run it as a proper brand. 

Hockeys direction has been strongly influenced by Benny Magliano. He had previously worked with Dill and Van Engelen at Alien Workshop as a filmer for a number of their film parts. Benny is the main creative force behind the short Hockey skate clips that are put to announce new Hockey clothing and skateboard collections.

Hockey was officially launched in April 2015 with a self titled promotional vedit starring both John and Donovon, and if you look closely enough you can see AVE switch flipping in the background of one of Donovon’s parts. AVE had hit both John and Donovon up a year before Hockey launched asking them to be a part of the company. “Our plan was to ride spray painted boards for a year.” Donovon told Grey Skate Mag of the early plans.

However, having just left Workshop the guys rode FA boards for a short while until “it just started happening” with Hockey. “It happened within the blink of an eye. It was fucking crazy” Donovon recalls. To this day Hockey are putting out consistently trailblazing clips and are matching that creativity with their irreverent collection of decks and apparel.
