This Saturday (November 1st) Huf and Thunder trucks have joined forces and are releasing the collaboration of the year. Huf seem to be partnering with companies a lot  recently but this one has to be the one I’m most excited about. Thunder has been around for some years now starting in 1986, gathering a team of steez along their way. It includes Dylan Reider, Chris Cole, Mark Appleyard, Marc Johnson, Erik Ellington, Peter Ramondetta, Nick Dompierre, Sean Malto, Keith Hufnagel, Ed Templeton, Dennis Busenitz, John Rattray and many more. As you can see it’s an extremely powerful crew….



Huf has also been around for plenty of years starting around the 2000s. Keith Hufnagel the founder of Huf also skates for thunder so I can understand how this came about. Plus quite a lot of other riders skate for both companies so it makes sense to combine the two brands. Take a look below to see what’s to come.. 

It’s good to see how each brand have contributed, Thunder doing the trucks then Huf taking control of the clothing. The socks which have been a huge hit in the past have still got the standard ganja leaf symbol but have also got Thunders heart shaped grenade logo too which I think works really well. The design for the Raglan, T-shirt and Snapback is also mint. It isn’t just the colour way featured above but there is also a navy blue/white one too. 



When it comes down to0 the trucks, the idea behind the packaging is pure brilliance. They’ve made miniature Huf shoe boxes to store them in. How cool is that! Also there’s no need to worry about sizes as there are sizes to please all types of girth. Gillet, Cromer, Hufnagel, Rieder, Ramondetta and Plunkett all have a pro truck for you to choose from. Some are lights too so will make your board as lite as a feather. If your not into that then they are the standards ones as well. 



Overall this is exciting shit so keep yours eye peeled for the drop, happening tomorrow! As always these things tend to sell out fast so get it on your Christmas list asap and hopefully you’ll be available to purchase some of this fine product from the Huf X Thunder trucks range!
