Touching on the operations of brand, THAMES will be a “vehicle to support and work collaboratively” with a team of both art directors and skaters led by Sam Sitayeb and Blondey. Finally, Blondey teased that the first collection for THAMES MMXX will be dubbed “Boarders” and features a replication of his old school uniform.

ORIGINAL STORY (September 24, 2019): After officially parting ways with Palace Skateboards, Blondey McCoy is now gearing up to reintroduce his Thames label as a skate brand.

Taking to Instagram, the British skate figure posted a video of a set of decks rumored to be part of an initial drop coming sometime this early October. The series of five Thames branded decks reveal a metallic expression of the Palace of Westminster, the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords which make up the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Touching on the state of the British Parliament, Blondey captioned the video, “A glimmer of hope, in light of the reinstatement of two Great British Institutions. Thames Skateboards, 2019.”

Stay tuned for more details when they become available.
