We get a bunch of new inventory in everyday. Sometimes it can be insanely difficult to keep up with. So, since we have the opportunity to see everything that comes in each day, we have picked out a few of our faves to make it a little easier for you.

Bode’s Pick:

Lib Tech Attack Banana 156 cm – “The most epic ride for
everything. It dominates the park”.



Lee’s Pick:

The Art of Flight – “National Geographic doesn’t have s#!t on this. Best snowboarding, best cinematography, best nature scenes = best video ever”.



Max’s Pick:

Emerica Reynolds Cruisers Black/Red/White – “They skate good, save you from heel bruises, and don’t look dumb”. Read More >

Start Your Snowboard Season with a FREE Capita Snowboard

An historic October snow storm just clobbered the Northeast dropping more than a foot of snow on most towns. I’m sure the resorts up there are rushing to be the first to open their lifts for snowboarders to take advantage of some early season riding. We down here at Ambush are celebrating the beginning of snowboard season our own way…by giving away a FREE Capita snowboard.

Kick off the snowboard season with us on Friday, 11-11-11 at 9:00 pm. We will be showing Capita’s latest video Defenders of Awesome and everyone in attendance will automatically be entered to win a Capita snowboard of their choice.

Travis Glover

Everyone should turn their Dec. issue of The Skateboard Mag to p.87. You will find a banging photo of the one and only, Travis Glover. I have been shredding with this fool for years and it is about time his skating is seen outside the Atlanta area. Zoo York skateboards is showing him love and even have some lengthy blogs about their tour around ATL with Travis just last week. If you have never seen Travis skate, you shouldn’t hesitate to go watch After Glow and get your mind blown.

Renovation Update



Brian pulled an all-nighter on Friday, Nick stayed until 1:00 am last night, and I am here now making sure our concrete guys kick ass. It’s starting to look epic in here. The floors look like you are walking on water.



The shop is still in shambles, but not for long. Boards are on the wall and the counters are fixed in their new spots. The carpet is all pulled up and once they buff out that glue, the ground will be so smooth you could skate on it. Just kidding, keep that outside.

The dudes from Volcom are also here throwing in their own build out for their killer apparel line. So by the end of the weekend, all you skate rats will have a brand new shop.



Ambush Board Co. is Getting a Facelift

Innovate. Progress. Push. Revitalize. Upgrade. Move Forward.

The skate section inside Ambush Board getting a major renovation.  Out with the old; in with the new. All of the old carpeting…gone. The dull, stained mess is about to become an awe inpiring dyed concrete. The boring, broken down skate island…destroyed. Soon it will be an attractive counter system designed to allow our customers to shop with ease. And this is just the beginning. Drop by and check our progress as we move along…or see the completed project in about two weeks. Either way…you won’t be dissapointed.

Ambush Game of Skate #16

Skateboarders are quite possibly the most enthusiastic people on the planet. I know we may seem spaced out, aloof, and disinterested, but that’s part of our charm. When it comes to skateboarding, we are all in.

The Ambush Game of Skate is the most consistently rock solid event in the Atlanta skateboard scene, and it is  the gusto of the participants that makes the contest what it is. No vibes here…just a couple hundred skateboarders pursuing their passion. Everyone was hanging out, rooting their friends on, and tapping their boards in respect for a banger trick. It’s as if we were all in this together and the competition was just a way to express our personal individuality throughout the day. And that’s what skateboarding is all about. Read More >

Early Season Snowfall

It’s only October 7th and Tahoe has already had its first major snowfall of the season. Ten plus inches fell across Mammoth as well, making this snowboarder super amped for the upcoming season. I know its early and most resorts don’t open for another month…but I can’t help but hope that this is the opening salvo to an amazing year of snowboarding. I guess I’ll just have to satisfy my preseason urges by watching The Art of Flight over and over again until opening day. But…in the back of my mind…I will know that while it is 80 degrees here in Kennesaw, GA…it looks like this right now in Squaw Valley

Vans Tie Dye Day


Tie dye is the new black. At least that’s what it seems like after today’s tie dye day. Ambush Board Co. and Vans teamed up to give our tie dye enthusiasts a channel to get creative. Footwear, tees, hoodies, and socks were all dyed up in an endless array of colors and patterns…and most of them turned out great.

Dyers came from all around to participate in today’s affair. And their reasons for wanting to be a part of the event were just as good as their designs. Want to produce a set of tees that are different from everyone else’s? Make your mark. Spill wine on your favorite white tee? Dye it up and no one can tell. Need an outlet to show how trippy you are? Twist it up and get down. Love Vans and Ambush and want to be a part of what we do? We could only be so lucky. Read More >
