JUICE MAGAZINE LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE

“Juice has the Juice. More than a magazine. A community of humans that do it! Juice is BADASS!!!” – CHUCK DUKOWSKI

“Juice is the truest mag out there. Period.” – TIM JACKSON

_________________________________________________________________

“In this information age where stories and pictures are not much more than a blip on a screen, there’s something special about having a magazine in your hand, reading the words printed on paper, and giving the info time to sink in. Juice has never sold out and it has truly made an art form of documenting the history of hard-core music, skating, surfing, park building, art, and the outside of the box lifestyle that our culture and community is formed from. The people behind Juice have dedicated their lives to bringing you this important information and should be supported like the family that they are. Thanks.” – GRINDLINE SKATEPARKS

“Juice Magazine has been a voice for core skateboarding, music, and art for over 25 years. They did their first feature on me in 1998, and we’ve worked together many times over the years. I want to pay my respects to authentic voices in skateboard culture who chronicle the past and the future.” – SHEPARD FAIREY

“Juice is a crucial contemporary and historical source for the whole skate/surf/punk rock/art scene worldwide and founded, owned and edited by Terri Craft along with the multitalented Dan Levy. They are based in Venice Beach and create Juice with a totally independent spirit and approach to living life with an artistic integrity that is hard to maintain these days.” – DOUG MENUEZ

“I just wanted to let you know how much I think you rock! Your magazine is to me what Thrasher was 20 years ago. I think you provide a valuable resource to guys like me by covering the people, places and things that we relate to. I’m always looking foward to the next issue of Juice and am grateful that you guys are keeping it real and not selling out.” Peace. – CHRIS ‘CSKATE’ STEVENS – Portland, OR

“I just wanted to say thanks for the coverage in this issue of Juice. Glad to be apart of it. The article and photos looked great. Impressive issue all together. That interview by Jeff Ho of Strider is amazing. By the far the best interview style piece I have ever read. Strider really has a great head on his shoulders. That should required reading for any young surfer.” – KENNY ONUFROCK – Wilmington, NC

_________________________________________________________________

“I gotta say again I just finished Issue 57, cover to cover, and it’s hands down the best skate mag I’ve ever read, and one of the better mags period in terms of just loads of interesting perspectives from loads of interesting people. (I used to do some writing/interviews myself and I always like what a friend once said, ‘All good writing is basically about people.’) From the supercasual and yet super in-depth interviews (and TONS of them) to the stuff w/ the park builders to the rad interviews with George Clinton (off the hook) and Suicidal, it was great. Took like three weeks to get thru the whole thing, which is great. Thanks for the stoke and once again for proving that people are still putting out quality stuff.” – MIKE – Berkeley CA

_________________________________________________________________

“Thanks a lot for the anniversary issue. It’s always a big thrill to discover a new one ! You’ve raised a kind of Dream Team through the years and you’re now so far away from other trivial publishers, that there’s no comparison possible. Skaters will never thank you enough in this time of corporate business. Keep it pure!” – CLAUDE QUEYREL – Marseille, France

_________________________________________________________________

_________________________________________________________________

“Thanks for the V.B. coverage. Excellent magazine keep up the good work!” – ALLEN MIDGETTE – Virginia Beach, VA

_________________________________________________________________

“Juice Magazine is focused on pools, pipes and punk rock. It has some of the best in depth articles and interviews I’ve seen in a skate mag. An interesting aspect of the interviews is the thoroughness, from the first time someone stepped on a skateboard to what they’re up to today. After reading one you really get the to know the person being interviewed. There’s not much in the way of street skating, nevertheless everyone should enjoy it. The music section is packed with reviews and includes interviews of bands. Each issue has been packed with tons of great reading material, and if you’re not into reading the photos are great as well.” – SKATEBOARD REVIEWS – www.harvestboards.com

_________________________________________________________________

“Got my Juice in the mail yesterday – your 10th Anniversary issue seems to have achieved heroic proportions in every good way – nice work .” – Cheers – CHARITY – Australia

_________________________________________________________________

“The 10 year anniversary issue is jam packed and excellent, by the way. I’m still re-reading it. I like the fact that you guys had a wide variety of content. of course, I’m 38, so I always dig the 80’s stuff too. tell whoever is responsible that they are doing a great job. The major mags mostly suck nowadays.” – RANDY – California

_________________________________________________________________

“How’s it! I just got the Juice mags today and I’m super stoked. People are all ready buying them. The 10th anny is really good. Lots of actual reading. Keep it coming. I’m really happy to support your mag. There aren’t too many good one’s left.” – ELLIOTT – Frozen Ocean – Canada

“Props… Claus Grabke is an inspiration to us all! Issue # 57 should go down in history. Simply brilliant! Keep up the great work! Juice for life.” – AJ PICARELLO – DOWN CYCLES

_________________________________________________________________

“Another great issue! Peter Hewitt cover was my favorite. I read the thing cover to cover to cover to cover and it will still take me a few months to fully absorb the thing. I know ya’ll go through hell trying to get each issue out, but no other rag comes even close!!! They can all eat thier collective hearts out. Kill photos! The interviews are unreal. The Best Mag in the world. YOU GUYS RULE THE POOL!!!! p.s. Hosoi interview!?! HOLY FUCKING SHIT!” – MERK – 5.9%

_________________________________________________________________

_________________________________________________________________

“You guys are doin an awesome job with the mag…Juice is the soul of skateboarding these days. Thanks for keeping it real. Keep up the GREAT work. Peace.” – J HOFMANN – Georgia

_________________________________________________________________

“Hey Guys, Just wanted to let you know that I got the new issue in the mail on Friday and I spent all of the weekend reading it. Never in my years of reading skate magazines have I been so thoroughly entertained. I quite literally was freaking at every article and at one point I told my girlfriend that I was going to write just to let you guys know how much your magazine means to me. As a freelance writer and longtime skater/enthusiast I would like to extend my gratitude to you guys at JUICE. I know it sounds cliche’ but if you ever needed a man on the east coast to do work for events or articles or whatever else, let me know. It would be an honor to help and support your magazine in any way I can. Thanks for everything!” – JASON DOVE – Baltimore, MD

_________________________________________________________________

“I received my Dogtown Chronicles and the 10th anniversary issue and I can’t wait to get future issues. Thanks so much to you and to the staff for putting out such an awesome publication! Terri must be an exceptional person to have kept this going for 10 years. Keep up the good work! SK8 to live…live to skate.” – GINA LACAVA

_________________________________________________________________

“Many large congratulations on your 10 year anniversary issue – 162 pages of great photos and stories, scads of advertising and page chats with Bo Diddley, George Clinton and Suicidal Tendencies! Come a long way and never forgot your East Coast beginnings, or your East Coast friends. That’s important.” – MIKE RAAB – PUBLISHER – THE BEAT MAGAZINE

_________________________________________________________________

“Keep up the good work. You guys are great. It’s cool to see a magazine recognizing what we always considered true skating, as well as good music and stuff like that. I loved the Ian MacKaye interview! Steve Olson for President.” – JOE MARGIOTTA

_________________________________________________________________

“I got my copy of the 10th anniversary edition of Juice and I am totally blown away. That thing is like a skateboarding tome!!! Your choice of interviewers and depth is something rarely seen in skating and I just wanted to let you know what an incredible publication you have going. I have something to read on the subway for the next few weeks. AWESOME.” – JOE POPP – NYC

_________________________________________________________________

“Thanks for sending me your last issue. It gets better every time. I’m proud of you guys for keeping your magazine ‘for real’ and not a controlled piece of shit. Skateboarding isn’t just jumping over things or just pool riding for that matter. That’s one of the cool things about skating. There’s so many different ways to do it. I liked the Fletcher interview as well as Jason’s. With all the new bowls and skateparks that have been made recently, I believe skateboarding might even change back to where style made a difference. I’m sure the future rippers of our sport will get their start in the parks just like the pros of the past. Guys like Cab, Hosoi and Hawk all grew up in skateparks and I’m sure these new parks will produce many new future rippers of the same quality. Your magazine reminds me of Thrasher when it first started, when they did it outta love and not for the money. Keep up the good work and tell it like it is.” – JAY BOY ADAMS – Haleiwa, HI

_________________________________________________________________

“I checked out the new issue and it was downright superb!” – JEFF GREENWOOD – Los Angeles, CA

_________________________________________________________________

“I just finished reading the new issue and it was awesome. You people really outdid yourselves this time. I really appreciate the coverage of the skaters that I grew up with starting in 78 when I first touched a skateboard. The interview with Stacy Peralta was especially cool.” – ERIC FORTNER – Hayward, CA

_________________________________________________________________

“Holy freakin crap. First off, thanks for the subscription! Since Juice is really the only mag worthy of my money and time, you can bet I’m stoked! Also the sticker is way sick. Thanks. All Juice interviews are the best because you interview people who actually have something to say and not boring pros or kids who have yet to experience enough to have something to say. Juice covers things I want that other shitty bandwagon mags won’t even touch. Even ‘Thrasher’ is 95% ledge-tech shit. Now I’m not gonna say I won’t skate a ledge, curb, gap, or rail, but no one will even put a pool in the mag anymore! And if they do the whole article is maybe one page. Hell, I’m from Kentucky, I don’t even get to skate real pools (maybe that’s why I crave Juice so much). So anyway, your mag rules, your attitude rocks and your staff is deep with skateboard history and I really appreciate it. And I love the surfing too. Thanks.” – JEFF MOZER – Stanton, KY

_________________________________________________________________

“Good job people! Finally a mag that doesn’t just ooze industry/corporate sleaze from every page. The two t-mags just get worse and worse and further away from the heart of skateboarding. Good idea to interview people who build and do stuff rather than just the new flavor of the week shoe pro.” – RED – OAKLAND

_________________________________________________________________

“I love Juice. It encompasses our culture from the roots up. No other skate magazine dives deeper into the history of our freak show universe. It is a literal recording of where we come from, the people who led the way, and its relation to where we are today. Coverage ranges throughout every pocket, every corner, every crack, every lump. From top to bottom, the entire production is core driven. The content and the context is delivered in a way that creates an authentic and whole perspective. Censorship doesn’t even come close to existing in our world on wheels and waves, and Juice delivers the goods unadulterated. Pools, pipes, and punk rock is about far more than tricks and songs; an entire lifestyle surrounds the setting. Juice Mag lives within the heart of this lifestyle, and shares it unconditionally.” – IRON MOSQUITO

“Juice Magazine is arguably the very heart and soul of Venice, California. They have been documenting the skate, surf, and music scenes around the world since 1993, and a lot of the town’s cool can be easily traced back to Juice. Publisher/Editor/Owner, Terri Craft, and Assistant Editor, Dan Levy, have been bringing everyone the Juice for over 26 years… Juice Magazine is pretty much the Bible to so many in the skate world, not only in Venice, but around the world… So many awesome times have originated with Juice … from skate contests to ragers at the Juice headquarters, from epic art exhibitions like Beyond The Streets to art shows in local galleries. From collaborations with the California Locos and Shepard Fairey to showcasing the work of local and coming up artists – and bands and writers and everyone who gets and appreciates the Juice vibe… They were fundamental in helping to get the Venice Skatepark built, as well as getting the documentary about it made – Made In Venice is crucial viewing for anyone who cares about skating and/or Venice. Thank you so much for helping to bring so many more awesome times to us all! Long Live Juice!” – CJ GRONNER – BLOGTOWN
