Blast from the Past….

“Skateboarding is not a Crime”… the phrase that defines our culture and our time.
Blast from the Past (BFTP) took on the world when three childhood friends (now in their 40’s) got together at a local skate park in the heart of Bangkok for a quick run and few tricks. Following the usual grinding, sliding, but mostly slamming on their aging bones… Nutt, Dui, and Pong sat together to shared their memories and passion of their restless journey into the world of skateboarding. Growing up in the 80’s and its time of skateboarding culture became an influential part of their views to the world of art, fashion, style, design, and music. “Wouldn’t it be gnarly to re-live few of those moments once more???”

Blast from the Past was a phrase that represents their lives, and is now a bridge to transport back the art form, senses and style of the skateboarding culture from the 80’s to share them with the new generations and the world. BFTP will be thrashin the world starting from Bangkok to other major cities with its merchandises ranging from old school decks with amazing graphics done by local artists, t shirts, caps, shoes and just about everything that make you stylish.

Blast from the Past is not just about skateboarding …. But it is an Art Form; it is a Culture; it is a Scene, it is a Lifestyle, and most importantly… it is about You!

Are you ready to Blast???
