"I figure I'm the most qualified to talk about Wojtek because we're the same person. Seriously. We fused lives and it's just been 24/7 awesome ever since. We even work together now. He brings me coffee and sweeps up the mess I make on the jobsite, then we go out skating and he makes me cry by doing laserflips on stuff I don't even bother trying to ollie. Afterwards, we go to the bar and drink enough to kill a small Micronesian village. And if one of us gets laid that night, the other one does too. Not to say we do it with each other- that would make showing up to work on Monday really awkward. I love being Wojtek."

Words by Al Murray-Lawson

Gnar by Wojtek

PS, Wojtek doesn't work with me anymore, we broke his soul so he quit before he went on a brutal misogynistic rampage. He still skates though... sometimes.

got nothing to do on new years in toronto? you might want to check this out


wojtek has a new bloods check out in the new concrete powder, which forgot to include panther starship as a sponsor. racists! also it's worth checking out because the lovely words of al murray-lawson can be found along with it and he does not disappoint. i'll try to get a pic of it later.

germany is making moves on the avril lavigne program

wojtek would you like to explain that?

i said it on slap and i'll say it again
that's how i always pictured skateboarding in germany. fucked up parks and some techno skank in the middle rocking out.

that just proved how i'm never wrong.

music and such

tomorrow at touche in hamilton (right across from che burrito) calum murray-lawson and dan arget's bands (born to busk+the calum murray-lawson band) are both playing. come out, get drunk, and wake up in a sketchy hotel with either of them..or both of them.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

born (and raised) on a saturday

yesterday was calum and whiskey's birthday. this happened to them both

no, i'm just kidding. it only happened to calum.

in other news: Junction Skateshop now carries panther starship boards and are also having a charity event on saturday. so check it out, or end up like calum in the video.

Monday, December 8, 2008


welcoming nick genova to the already messy panther starship team. much like most people, i pronounced his name wrong and was wasted when i asked him to ride for us. he's a great addition due to his amazing stunt stick skills, good looks, and ability to kill it on and off the ol' board. welcome aboard, player!

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

you're going to have to speak up, i'm wearing a towel.

i forgot we never announced the new team rider, so we will do that monday at midnight but give sexy hints on who he may be throughout the week.

here's the first one:
he plays the man inside this whale suit

Monday, December 1, 2008


our good friends over at junction skateshop made this hilarious commercial involving big foot (played by the amazing wes loates) , brian hughes, a panther board spotting!, and free shoes (if you can fit in them). what else more could you possibly need?

some fat chick and a vampire movie

i haven't seen whiskey, wojtek, arget, or al in a while then i remembered twilight came out and they just can't get enough of it.

a wild snorlax appeared and made this video about it

guys, we might need an intervention.


another shipment of boards should be arriving in 2-3 weeks. until then we're down to 2 boards left of each size, so get yours now. big thanks to everyone so far who has supported us, it's been an amazing start.

manther studship

thanks to everyone who came out on friday to celebrate the release of panther starship and the downfall of society to go along with it. the turn out was amazing and we ended up setting a record at the bar for most booze sold in one night. i suspect a lot of people were scared much like this person but all together it was a great night! big thanks to 751, jazz the best bartender ever, and pat mcguire, james rathbone, jimmy decaire, and dan arget for doing a fucking awesome job keeping great music going all night.

i'll put up some pics tomorrow after that video settles in.

Friday, November 21, 2008

word is a mother fucker

we're rofling off a board tonight at 751 at the panther starship release party. $2 for a ticket or $5 for 3.

so come get drunk, win a board, and go home with someone sketchy. it's the panther way of life.

Sunday, November 16, 2008

ground control to major wojtek

Monday, November 3, 2008

Sunday, November 2, 2008

D for Disaster

halloween was awesome. majority of panther starship came together to drink, watch wojtek run around, and party. as expected someone went to the hospital, it was quite the night.

Friday, October 31, 2008

Thursday, October 30, 2008

mit happens

this happened to me the other day

it was pretty fucking cool. i'd probably do it again.

Monday, October 27, 2008

it's kind of like easter

he only comes out once a year, but here he is. ALL HAIL!


wojtek is kind of the new chocolate rain guy

wojtek is in the new sbc with the fancy morgan smith cover. i guess adidas picked him up on the side of the road and brought him to new york. all that hitch hiking finally paid off, way to go hombre!

how to get women

now we get asked a lot "panthers, you're always out partying and getting rowdy...but how do you maintain to pull in so many girls at the same time" well the answer is simple. be yourself, be confident, lie about a bunch of shit, remind them how busy you are, and learn from the best...observe:

but remember, always wear a helmet.

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

good morning.

start your day off right.

- panther.

interior crocodile alligator

tonight whiskey and myself went out in the alley to get a few tricks for the blog. i didn't realize how ugly feebles are on ledges until this video. after we watched lep in the hood. it ruled.

Monday, October 20, 2008


lurking around youtube i found this video of wojtek

look at em go!

Sunday, October 19, 2008

thanks for being so awesome, al.

Friday, October 17, 2008

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

A Good Night for the Panthers

This is how every night is going to end once we all assimilate into panther culture.

More Junior

Sorry, any skate videos or photos I know how to find are mostly of me, my brother, or wojtek. When Pat gets back he'll school you to some Niagara Falls people, as the only thing I know about Niagara Falls is that it's fun to show up to the casino after last call and claim a seat at the Texas Hold 'em table and talk all kinds of shit on the people who think they're the new Doyle Brunson or something. 


Sunday, October 5, 2008


Or Chuck as I call him, but only I can call him that because he's my little brother and I can call him whatever the fuck I want. He's a ripper, and he's also the youngest yet the tallest member of the Murray-Lawson brigade. He pretty much took over holding down the family name in skateboarding when I discovered partying satisfies me in a way that skateboarding just can't quite. He drinks as much as me but never seems to be as drunk. I think he's magical. His wizard stick manna is 18, and he likes 'em young, fresh, green, with no hair inbetween, know what I mean?

Friday, October 3, 2008

so... what's going on?

Hi friends, this is Al. I'm the one in the video below. I'm actually trying to quit smoking so I can have more money to drink, but it's not going too well. I'll be Pat's stuntcock while he's away sipping cosmopolitans in a speedo on a windy beach in some European country whose name I can't pronounce and is probably going to become part of Georuserbkrainbania soon anyways. (As you can see I have a very limited knowledge as to the goings-on of European civilization). I'll do my best to find relevant shit to post when I'm not busy beating it to profile pictures of girls I wish I knew on facebook. If you get bored in the meantime (I can beat it for hours on end) swing over to or for a good time, I'll be there, waiting...

Wednesday, October 1, 2008


al is a fun name to say. i like al because he drinks too much, smokes too much, is always drunkenly yelling at someone or something, and he doesn't take skateboarding so seriously but still kills it.
he was also hammered when he big flipped unitel as you can see in this video

he's also in charge of the blog while i'm gone for a week or two. enjoy.

day in the park with matt mongeri

Monday, September 29, 2008


co-owner of panther starship, matt "whiskey" hariski, has been a close homie for years. he's always down for whatever, rips, and i kick his ass in ea skate every time we play. here's some footage of him from the summer that he's not using for our super secret panther starship video coming out next year...oh wait, shit.


word is bond.

panther starship decks will be found mostly around ontario and we will announce very soon what shops will be carrying your soon to be favorite company.
our friends over at ag skateshop in niagara falls is one of these shops. if you live in the falls and want to pick up some girls/look handsome/upset your parents, go to their convienent location by the niagara skatepark and grab a brand new panther starship deck. tell trevor and anthony panther sent ya.


for the longest time i used to call wojtek 'wadjtek'. then after being politely corrected and called an asshole i realized it's pronounced VOY-tek. he talks mostly like an lol cat and can be found drawing penises in all sorts of scenarios. he also has an awesome blog with al murray-lawson at

this is his most recent part and the starship couldn't be more stoked on him riding for us.


our first board graphic done by mr jimmy declaire himself. comes in 7.5, 7.625, 7.75, 8, 8.25 with the best shapes canada has to offer.

thinking of an idea of what to write in the caption? this might help

release date as early as oct. 20th or as late as nov. 10th. get yours.
