As the sun goes down, setting the soundtrack for the evening will be local acts Day of The Dead, Ray Finkle, Ben Swanson, Ben Catley, Meg Wheeler and Nu Omh Ra, along with local DJ’s; Frank Lee, DJ Stalephish and other to be announced. 

Livid Skate has aligned with Disabled Surfers Association to present a raffle with a stack of prizes from our sponsors who include Volte Wetsuits, Soggybones, The Butcher Shop, Gluten Free Goods, Von Dresselt Surfboards, The Lucky Ones, Sustainable Furniture Co, Dimattina Coffee, El Grotto, The Milk Barber, Gage Roads, Custard Cider co and Sailor Jerrys. All proceeds from the raffle will go towards a great cause.

Livid Skate is more than just a skate brand. Since its inception it has grown as a community of skaters, artists, photographers, surfers and other rad humans. Artists and photographers, whose work feature on the skate decks, are given a platform to exhibit their work at the Livid Exhibitions that are held to coincide with the release of each new deck series. Livid Skate aims to push against ‘consumer culture’ by creating skateboards that are artisan-made - the rolling embodiment of handcrafted cool.

The new “Art Grind” series decks will be unveiled at the launch on the 22nd and have been hand-shaped locally in Perth. They are limited to 5 decks per artwork with a variety of single- and double-kick shapes. The original artwork and skateboards will be available for purchase at the launch, and online at www.lividskate.com.
