Desafortunadamente la revista Skateboarder Mag desaparece, esto debido a que el mercado del internet le esta ganando por mucho al mercado impreso. Norb Garrett grabó este video en donde explica los motivos del por qué esta increíble publicación dice adiós.
“Unfortunately market conditions have forced us to have to make the difficult decision to cease publication of Skateboarder,” said Norb Garrett, SVP Group Publisher of GrindMedia. “It’s especially disappointing given the strong interest and initial success we’ve had with the new digitally focused editions; our Skateboarder team has worked incredibly hard producing a cutting-edge product that has been successful at reaching a larger audience online. We will take all of the learnings from Skateboarder’s efforts and apply them to TransWorld Skateboarding and our other brands as the digital model has demonstrated real promise.” – Norb Garrett
