Primitive Skateboarding Proudly Welcomes Bastien Salabanzi to the Team

January 05, 2015

“I first met Bastien back at Tampa Am 2001. I was so amazed at his abilities and how consistent he was. I immediately became inspired to become a better skater and have looked up to him ever since. He is a true legend in skateboarding. I'm honored to have gotten to know him and so excited to have him as a part of the Primitive Skateboarding family!”

JULY 1, 2018 (Los Angeles, CA) – Today, Primitive Skateboarding announced the release of an interdimensional adventure capsule with Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty. The Los Angeles based skateboard company is slated to drop a 20-piece limited capsule of hard goods, apparel and lifestyle goods inspired by the characters of the hit animated series, dimensional portals and of course Pickle Rick. The Primitive x Rick and Morty Capsule is now available here:

During a sneak peek a few weeks prior, the pre-sale of the original capsule sold out within minutes of release and had avid fans of Rick and Morty begging for more. Though the show takes place across infinite realities, the capsule will be offered again through earthly portals, the collection ranges in price between $11 - $70 and will be available in finer retail outlets and online at while supplies last.  

Rick and Morty is the critically-acclaimed, half-hour animated hit comedy series on Adult Swim that follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe. Rick Sanchez is living with his daughter Beth’s family and constantly bringing her, his son-in-law Jerry, grand-daughter Summer, and grand-son Morty into intergalactic escapades. Can the family survive Rick’s insanity and all the chaos the universe throws at them?  

Rick and Morty stars Justin Roiland ( Adventure Time), Sarah Chalke ( Scrubs), Chris Parnell ( Saturday Night Live) and Spencer Grammer ( Greek). The series is created by Dan Harmon ( Community) and Roiland who also serve as executive producers.
