Social Media Roundup: August 2022

Greetings, Shredderz! As summer comes to close (for us Northern Hemisphere residents, anyway), here are some hits from IG over the past 30 days or so. First, we gotta start with the classics.

The (Not So) New Hobie Noserider

Greetings, Shredderz! I’ll be honest with you guys: I am feeling very under the weather at the moment, but sadly the content salt mines never close.

Pottz for Gotcha

Greetings, Shredderz! I’ll cut right to the chase here: I have zero clue what’s going on in this 80s Gotcha ad. It appears to be a slightly more subdued companion to another Gotcha ad that I featured way back. Head scratching poses aside, I do like the artwork and the aesthetics, and you…
