Grind Media announced on August 19th that they will be closing Skateboarder Magazine. It’s the second closure since the publisher purchased Transworld back in May, the first closure being Transworld Surf. Norb Garrett published a video announcement explaining the decision, which you can view below. He cites difficult business conditions as the main reason which leaves you wondering how Transworld Skate is going to go in the future? And as pointed out by Boardistan, there’s now a face off between Snowboarder and Transworld Snow to play out. Be very interesting to see what happens.
