Hard to believe summer is around the corner when we just got record snow fall in Colorado. However, it is almost here and we have some upcoming events we’d like to promote…
First, is the Annual Dave Tuck Skate Jam in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Here is a nice commentary explaining who Dave Tuck is, why his jam is in MI, and what the event raises money for by Josh Meisler- the event’s Creator, Coordinator, and Host. Josh, we thank you for keeping Dave’s essence alive through this kick ass rally to sk8 in his honor. We cherish and miss you Dave ❤
The other event we are promoting is a Girl SK8 Jam in North Carolina, called S.E.S.H. Skate Jam – an acronym for South Eastern Sister Hood Skate Jam. This event dreamed up by our OG Skate Sister Tamra Church. The event was inspired to bring Girls who share a love for skateboarding together at all ranges of ages as well as skill levels.This is its kick off year, it will be rad to see what it grows into for next year!
Lastly there are Skateboard Camps coming up from Duchess Ride up in Eagle County starting June 4th! Duchess Ride is a 501(c)3 non-profit who’s mission is to cultivate TENACITY, CAMARADERIE, and CREATIVITY in young girls. They do great work and we love them for it! Check out the link to their website for more information.
When we got the invite to show at 303 Magazine’s Denver Fashion Weekend 2013, the answer to Charlie Price was immediately YES! As expected, Charlie delivered. We hope everyone feels we did as well. Equillibrium is very pleased with the end result of the fashion show production… here’s the anticipated video for all who missed it!

For those not familiar with us, we’d like to share a blog we wrote a few years ago about our business ethics and moral code for sourcing materials for our products. “Equillibrium’s Transparent ‘UP’ Side”
BIG UPS and HUGE thank U to ALL involved for this gr8 event, Denver Fashion Weekend 2013… We’d like to name a special few: 303 Magazine, Charlie Price, Jonelle, Ramon, and Hallie from Evolution Salon, Mona Lucero, Margaret and Christine Cutter, Lisa Huff, Ben Owens, models: Kelsey, Karly, Wendy, and Madison.
This past weekend was the 6th annual CAMTEST, Dave Tuck Invitational, Skateboard Contest and Jam. Not only was the sk8ing EPIC, but the event continues to embody the times and ties of our history. As a brand, we could not be more proud of our roots. Following our passions in life has lead to who we are today and will be tomorrow. The blood runs thick and the family is only growing.
This leads to a couple of introductions. First, Equillibrium is proud to announce Cara Kruse is now our CORE Sales Representative. Founder Deb Henriksen and Cara have known each other through skateboarding for the past 15 years and counting. Cara’s experiences and training from prior jobs has groomed her perfectly for this position with Equillibrium, and at the perfect time. Besides being heavily focused on outside sales, Cara will also be guest blogging. We are very excited!
Equillibrium CORE Classics (EQ CC)
Secondly, Equillibrium will soon be launching our new CORE Classic (EQ CC) line this August 2013. Equillibrium Core Classics (EQ CC) will be a static line, available year-round, with select pieces being added over time. This line embodies the timeless street style and energy Equillibrium represents and will be available online, at “CORE Retailers”, and in our show room in Denver, CO. This is an exciting new approach for us in ready to wear, and will reinforce our relevance in street fashion. So far, the line consists of some basic hand bags and accessories, EQ Classic prints on T’s, a “seditionary” button up, and LOTS of black denim pieces (TBA- top secret)! All sourced and manufactured the Equilibrium way, sustainably and ethically… with a heavy dose of handy work and love. There are many exciting plans for Equillibrium ahead; we’ll be keeping you posted!
The Equillibrium Goat Series is made from 100% upcycled hides, no animals are ever harmed for our products.
In the past week we are booked for Holiday Trunk Shows and Markets (since most products are made in house & small batch we will not be doing more than 4), … here’s a look at some of Equillibrium’s treasures and wears we will be peddling…
There will be further announcements with more specifics closer to the dates… so far we will be in Old Town Arvada for SBS Nov.24th (at Lovely Boutique), in Golden on Sat. Dec.8th,
and at Mona Lucero’s Holiday Market on Dec. 15th. We are also thinking about a Holiday Party and Sale at our Show Room in Denver…. ???
