Most nights on my way home I stop and take a picture of the Sun Setting. It is my belief that Lexington has the best sun sets on earth. Here's a few. Also I understand this is a real dad dick of a post.
a few weeks ago we filmed a video look book for our Heaven line. Our homies Brandon McCane and Perry Wesley filmed and edited it for us and team rider Drew Justice did all the shredding. It was filmed by Drone in downtown Lexington. You can check out our Heavens line at RainDamageSkate.com

John Stamps and Knags from Indy played a show at Rain Damage this weekend. I've known and respected those dudes for about 7 years or so now. They always made me feel at home when I ventured up to Indianapolis so I hope I did the same for them while they were in Lex Town. Johns new album House Plant can be found here. https://m.soundcloud.com/john-stamps/sets/house-plants
Look book for Rain Damage Heaven line, video coming very soon
Going through my phone and seeing I've not been active, here are some photos from a show we had a Rain Damage a few months ago and some of the build up
show was Gosple Songs,
The Rain Damage squad got asked to have a booth at Summer Tease. It was an event throw by Drew from DrewClothing, Nazodidit, and Dollarboy. They did an awesome job on throwing this event and we got to meet a lot of people and put some faces to the internet. Also the new U.K. Art building on Bolivar is dope.
We grew up in the south. Spending weekends afternoons in flea markets and peddlers malls. Our youths were spent seeing outrageous and mostly comical home brew apparels in these settings and we wanted to attempt an ode to those very pieces, something that not only was sort of our brand but apart of those hot days when you could smell gasoline and French fries and you could purchase a hand gun or a belt buckle 10 feet from each other.
Trash can hands
Squad took a trip up to Cinci to pick up some decks from Instrument skateboard.
Our homie Dollarboy just dropped a new mixtape. Had swings by the shop a lot to say what's up. Good dude with a lot of talent. Shout out to Sound Cloud
Quick day Vlog from our first anniversary, also caught Blood Handsome live at The Burl.
Quick skate park edit from the Rain Damage skate crew. Aaron Owens, Matt Fraley, Dustin Holder, and Jon Thorpe.
These guys mean a lot to the shop and put a lot of faith in us when we probably didn't have faith in ourselves. All around amazing guys and skaters. Expect a full video from them this Summer.
Dalton was nice enough to have us on his radio show so we invited him over to the shop for our first episode of eating Oreos at Rain Damage. Check him out on Instagram at 859Approved
Our homie Dalton Christopher from 859 Approved invited us to be on his radio show today, had a wonderful time . Check him out on Instagram @859approved and his radio show on free Lexington radio 93.9 11am every Wednesday
Been busy at Rain Damage all of February and into March so we are finally catching a few minutes to put out some new product .
First Rain Damage "Its All Gucci" hardware.
Second the House Fire crew came through with some a new spring candle scent. Fresh YZY, with a scent of Spring and GOOD music this candle delivers a great feel for the season.
Rain Damage Damage Crew Neck, we had the idea to do a Damage crewneck as a staple piece at Rain Damage. Last year when we were first getting opened Prince passed away so this time of year will always remind me of that. Prince was my first concert as a kid and my older sister is one the biggest prince fans on earth, so needless to say he had an impact on my life. We put the Damage on this crew neck in purple as an homage to him.
Rain Damage 123 W 6th tee. Over the Winter we released a 15 dollar beanie, something with a good price point that also was useful and represented our shop well. We wanted to do that again for the Spring so here is our 15 dollar tee shirt.
Quick weekend pack.
