Snoop Dogg Launching Skate Board Company

Calvin “Snoop

Dogg” Broadus, superstar rapper, is now venturing into the world of skateboarding

with the launch of the Snoop Dogg Board Company (SDBC).

The company will launch

with a complete line of long and short skateboards, accessories and backpacks.

SDBC is being distributed

by Pentagon Distribution, the distributor for Kampus Wakeskates and shoes, Academy

Snowboards and CD Wakeboard Bindings.

"Bing Worthington,

Jr., Snoop Dogg's brother, came to us with a vision of bridging these two industries

together because there is already so much crossover between skateboarding and

the rap/hip-hop market,” said Duane Pacha, President of Pentagon Distribution.

The decks will be competitively

priced and in addition to the skate accessories, SDBC will launch a complete

line of high-end Snoop Dogg luggage and travel bags, which will hit stores in

January 2006.

"We are excited to

work with the Pentagon group,” Worthington said. “These guys are

definite hustlers in this business. With our music industry connections and

concerts, we know this project is going to get big. We are down with skateboarding

and want to get more music fans into skateboarding," commented Worthington.

SDBC is currently

looking for qualified international distributors to represent Snoop Dogg Board

Co. For more information visit
