Today we’re happy to announce the inaugural release of our new publication: The HYPEBEAST Paper. Serving as a printed platform that’s free to pick up, The HYPEBEAST Paper offers news and features presented as easy-reads – a quick yet thorough look at what’s current in our culture. The purpose of the paper is to be able to share the myriad of stories and information we come across in a stylistically pleasing and convenient medium. To kick things off, we’ve centered the summer edition around the ever important subculture and sport of skateboarding — with the renowned Eric Koston for our cover feature, an interview with skateboard video director William Strobeck, and an op-ed piece on skateboarding in the Big Apple. The paper also updates you on product news, track recommendations from our sister site HYPETRAK, and other features on who and what we’d like to share. Distributed globally, The HYPEBEAST Paper Issue 1 can be found at a number of selected retailers and at this summer’s major trade shows such as Agenda, Bread & Butter Berlin, BRIGHT, ENK, Magic and Project.
