Continuing its construction of the proverbial bridge that adjoins apparel with technology, Nike announces the future release of an app devoted exclusively to the gnarly world of skateboarding. Once any mobile user registers he or she will have the opportunity to learn new tricks from the app’s extensive Trick Tree, connect with skaters around the globe for random games of S.K.A.T.E., take part in challenges issued by Nike SB’s pro team, and track one’s progression through an adept sociable profile. Not only will the Nike SB App connect users with other like-minded thrashers around the world, but this also may be the start of a new outlet for skaters to gain notoriety among interested sponsors and possibly turn pro. Although there’s no word on its release details, interested parties can register here to get notified when more information drops in.
