Our homie, Adidas Skateboarding and Senate team rider, Jordan Brugger, stayed strapped with his Go Pro this summer and cut a little Manitoba summer loitering montage together. Your standard Manitoba summer from Clear Lake to the Whiteshell ensuring a little Oak + Oar love. Thanks for the support.

We have had a lot of people asking us for stickers and decals so we have done a limited run of Oak + Oar signature white vinyl indoor/outdoor decals available in a 6″ x 5.5″ ($5) and a 15″x 13″ ($10). The decals are made in Canada of high quality MACTAC White Vinyl made for 7-8 year indoor/outdoor application. Material has a high-gloss face stock and is highly flexible and provides ideal conformability over simple contours. Perfect for car, truck, boat, notebook, skateboard, ping-pong table, you name it. All vinyl indoor/outdoor decals are pre-masked allowing for easy application. Make sure you post your decal applications on our Facebook wall or hashtag #OakandOar on Twitter and Instagram. Get creative with it and you might just find a t-shirt being sent your way. And if you buy it this week you get the free shipping so it really only makes sense.
