Nike Skateboarding, more commonly known as Nike SB, has just released their new flash based website. The new interface has everything the old site had but more. The store locater is designed especially well because of it’s integration with a satellite map where you can easily find a Nike SB retailer near you. Even if you don’t wear the shoes, the design and layout of the site is worth taking a look at.

To commemorate the 25th Anniversary of legendary skateboard mag Transworld Skateboarding, Jason Lee designed one incredible New Era 59/50 cap. The material choices are spot on with faux griptape allover the top, and faux plywood under the brim for the full skateboard feel. The hat is lined with 25 years of Transworld Skateboarding’s best covers printed on satin and comes packaged in a special satin lined box.
