Itís like, $20 for the entire year, absolutely worth it if you like photography. Itís a bit less hellride without Phelps at the helm and I ainít mad about it.

Closer is rad but $20 an issue? I can't see that being sustainable. I hope I am wrong.

Ditto. Worth it for the photos alone and every now and then there is a good interview. Also, since they've hit their 40-year and 500-issues milestones they've been publishing lots of older & unseen photos.

When i was 12 I went to Barnes n Noble and grabbed every skate mag off the shelf including one called Daily Bread that I didnít realize was an aggressive inline skate mag until I got home. They call us ďwood-ridersĒ and all the submitted letters were from kids who were bummed that all their friends were quitting inlining to ride wood.

I do!

Whenever I have a skate friend whose birthday is coming up I buy them a year's subscription to Thrasher. 

$17 bucks for the 12 issues and a free t-shirt.  The gift that keeps on giving! Gotta support print media!

Enough content to keep me stoked. And a free shirt?
Dirt cheap.

Somebody pointed out that if you simply allow your subscription to lapse, rather than renewing, you will get sent that free T-shirt every time. Take that shirt, sell it online, and VOILA! You have a free subscription for a year.
Unless you really need another thrasher T-shirt, that is.

I wanna play you in a game of SKATE for the right to continue talking shit on me.  You think you got me?

After one of you posted the upcoming King Louie cover, signed up for a subscription. Oddly, my first issue wonít arrive till September so will have to buy the Louie August issue. Donít mind at all. Should have been subscribing all these years. Not gonna lie, excited for the shirt. And the monthly mag something to look forward to during our every day routines

Exactly!

It's great to have something to do wherever that doesn't involve a screen.

Yeah the sub is definitely worth it.

I was but I dunno if I am currently subscribed.
It's such a pain in the ass to subscribe. It takes forever for your first issue to arrive, and they never remind you when your sub expires. I missed an issue with some homies in it and I got kinda annoyed by the process.

I had it for a while but my subscription ended a few months back. I've been missing it every month for sure..

Those fuckers never sent me my free shirt so I have a bone to pick with Burnett now

Also up in Canada we see the new cover online and then 3 months later we get it in the mail.

Itís rad just looking at photos and remember clips you saw two months ago. 

That said, Iím sitting on two I havenít readÖ.

Subscribed? You know it. Burn through it, enjoy it, then leave it at the park for the yuts to learn.

I finally bought an gaff so will subscribe, later this week. Local tabac (I'm losing my English lol, smoke shop honestly forget the word, store that sells newspapers and cigarettes) has Thrasher from time to time but is like three months behind North America.

I find it worth it. You get to see content that isn't published online yet such as videos announcements, ads for upcoming products, and more. They don't put in stickers in every mag though, just only once in a while.

Come to think of it, how come there isn't a Thrasher mag discussion thread, be it one or monthly?

Thatís my plan. $20 for a tshirt is great, I bet they cost more than that at Zumies. Oh and the mag is nice

How do you know if your subscription is still valid?  I haven't gotten the Louie one yet and I dunno if it ran out or not.  It has my card saved...  Do I have to actively go back to the website each year and purchase a renewal?

I resubscribed for the digital version. Received one physical mag out of it and now it's just crickets. Idk what happened.

That mag wasn't really that interesting though. It's basically a brochure for companies to be like "by our shit". There was a cool photo of Nick Matthews doing an Ollie though. Every once in a while there will be some interesting interviews but it's hard to relate to most skaters as an adult. Also its just genuinely not worth getting invested in them either, i got money i need to stack.
