Thrasher magazine has been around the block and back. 25 times. It’s always been a bit different. The first one I really remember seeing was this one http://secure.thrashermagazine.com/images/content/c4564.jpg… although I’m sure I had some of the early ones (they were hard to come by in the country). The magazine was definitely not talking about the boring rural setting I grew up in. It helped make me an individual at an early age, when few people around me were, and I’m forever grateful to Jake and crew for that.
“The first twelve mags — to commemorate our 25th anniversary we are going to post a new mag from 1981 each month.”
“In January of 1981, a group of skateboarders in San Francisco put together the first issue of Thrasher magazine. Today, Thrasher is bigger and better than ever—its name synonymous with both skateboarding’s roots and constant evolution. International corporate bigwigs try to buy Thrasher’s credibility, while kids tattoo the magazine’s mantra, “Skate and Destroy,” into their skin.”
Hope they stick around for many more years.
