JUICE MAGAZINE MEDIA KIT
“We’re not here to fit in. We’re here to stand out.”
MIKE MUIR - SUICIDAL TENDENCIES – JUICE MAGAZINE
JUICE MAGAZINE has been representing the soul of skateboarding, surfing and music since 1993, and the honest approach of the stories and photos from an insider’s perspective makes JUICE more than just a magazine. With the legendary status of the JUICE MAGAZINE editors, every issue is full of raw, real and revealing interviews featuring some of the most interesting skateboarding journalism ever. JUICE MAGAZINE is an ongoing documentation of the roots of skateboarding, surfing and music by those that live it.
‘The truth is the truth and I won’t let you pretend otherwise.’ – TED NUGENT
The impact music and skateboarding have had upon each other is undeniable. From the driving groove of Ted Nugent to the high energy impact of Black Flag, skateboarding has always had a soundtrack. JUICE recognizes this phenomena and pays respect with in-depth coverage and interviews with many of music’s greatest.

‘We were the guys that got beat up at school, but we were aggressive people with our music. It was our way of getting back at the jocks that were getting all the girls. It was our way of shooting them down. Black Flag was my gun.’- KEITH MORRIS OF BLACK FLAG /CIRCLE JERKS
‘Skateboarding has changed my life in a very positive way. It has given me a focus in life that is pure and the determination to do things positive. I wouldn’t change it for all the money or power in the universe.’- TONY ALVA
‘I am trying to stay committed to the idea of the underground. I don’t want to just polish up this gift and sell it to somebody. I’m trying to keep it in good shape so it can be handed off to somebody else.’- IAN MACKAYE
