'A BED UNDER THE MONSTER' EXPO
Kathaoir is in the building!
Come and see, come and see. The first solo expo by the uncrowned king of the animal kingdom; filled with crazy mutants, aliens and other mysterious creatures you only see in dreams. As always, we also close this expo with a classic buy or burn, Kapow style!
It's that time again! Summer is coming so that means from now on you can sign up for Kapow's awesome skate camps!

Time to take a break from the sun! We'll take a break from it for a while, but return fully recharged on Feb. 10. Ready to rock the new year! ☀️

Once again it was time for a new board, and to celebrate our 20th deck we released with Kapow, we went the extra mile....
A new logo, a new look, a new deck. In addition to the "regular" colorful version of our new logo, we also went for a silver deck and an exclusive "holo" deck. Spaceeeey!
