Foundation Skateboards announces the launch of their new site. "It's about f**king time!," states Foundation founder, Tod Swank. We dumbed it down making it simpler to use with less useless crap that nobody cares about. Blog, videos, team riders, product and links. That's about it buddy. See what the F posse is doing everyday. See the newest gear. Styled after crappy skate zines, raw, ripped, and worn. Get on that shit.
