“Anywhere in and outta town B/the same every hood it’s so real/that you gotta be on your grizzly/if not then you might get pideeled” (Ghostface Killah)

It makes me smile when I think about the first time I saw Torey Pudwill in person. I was at the Skate More video premiere in Verona. He was mad young, going around with big guns like Daewon, Huf and Berra. Who could imagine that he would be the man in charge of Grizzly Griptape a few years later?! A griptape brand that was almost born for fun, you can see it nowadays under the feet of top pros and the road to world domination has just begun. Torey Pudwill made a name for himself through hard work, consistency, a monster pop and the ability to forget which way he’s going. No matter if nollie or ollie, regular footed or switch, T-Puds can throw down real tricks that get his fans psyched every time. This state of things and that Thrasher video part called Big Bang consequently put Grizzly heavily on the map. Through my main supporter Fresco Distribution that deals in top streetwear brands, I had this Grizzly Sunset Stamp t-shirt that is in stores in these days. A brand under the distribution of the almighty Diamond Supply Co., nothing beside that Tupac joint with Dre shows more California love than this design featuring a typical skyline with palms like you can see only in Los Angeles. A skate t-shirt like the ones that are ready for the worst: skate sessions and washing machine back to back in a loop, I have to say that these colors together are ready to make your summer vibe explode. Get ready for the big bang once again…
