Delivery of the Polar and Carhartt WIP is set for end of August. Quite a wait ahead but thought you might like a heads up!!
The man behind Polar Skate Co. is a Mr.Pontus Alv. He has been a Carhartt WIP team rider for over a decade and likes do do things a little differently then the rest of the skate professional fraternity. Pontus left his board sponsors' and went alone forging a slightly different path in skate.
This path saw the release of his first cult classic in 2005 ‘Strongest Of The Strange’ followed by his later film ‘In Search Of The Miraculous’. These films centred around Pontus’ skate scene with a focus on DIY park building. From here Pontus had a great platform to launch Polar Skate Co. which takes direction from 80’s graphics and DIY spot building.
With the Pontus and Carhartt WIP relationship going strong it is not to hard to see how this great collab came to be.
