Some of the Fairdale family and a whole lot of our friends have taken part in The Project Loop 50/50 for Taylor project. The non-profit sends out 100’s of blank skatedecks to artists and Fairdale employees to paint, draw or design on. The finished decks are being auctioned online right now until December 5. There is so many great decks to check out on the site… if nothing else it’s rad inspiration to see so many interpretations of what you can do with a skateboard. Our team rider Sandy Carson meticulously deconstructed his first SLR camera, Tim Kerr honors Jeff Phillips with his deck (Tim was once a hobo in one of our videos), Michael Sieben’s work is always awesome (and he once designed the Roger Bike for us), Jeremy Hrabal helped us out many times building Texas Toast and did this beautiful inlaid board, Jim Bauer is the art director for our mother company Odyssey BMX, is a big part of Fairdale, and put together this rad core sampled board, Steve Crandal helped us out as the announcer for TX Toast and painted a rad board, Aaron Ross has a couple Fairdales and came up with this giant skateboard/ cell phone thing. I drew the bat on a bike one here. Search around and find decks from Mat Hoffman and loads of other legends of skate and BMX. Also, tons of great artists contributed too. https://www.32auctions.com/50503 -Taj

Jim Bauer dive bombs a Fairdale October 17, 2011
Jim Bauer is a man of many hats. Known for daredevil pro BMX riding, creative designing (for Odyssey, Sunday and even Fairdale), snazzy dresser and being an all around cool dude. Here he bombs his custom Fairdale down a hill in Long Beach that is so steep its illegal to ride a bike down it. He even gives his Parser’s Kevlar belted Continental tires a good test when he monster trucks through a broken cracked up part of the road at top speed.
Jim has done some of the scariest things ever on a bike. This Jeff Z photo is from Ride.
Always looking for new ways to see things Jim Bauer completely customized his Fairdale Parser in copper… came out pretty didn’t it?
JB’s one of a kind custom Fairdale sits on the end of the Fairdale line just to show off a bit.
