Since Avril Lavigne’s classic hit “Sk8er Boy” first showed skateboarders could be desirable mates, skaters’ lovability has maxxxed out. Just carrying a skateboard today will get you thirsty looks and occasional catcalls. Girls love it, guys love it, everyone loves skateboarders (or at least they think they do).

In an effort to help skateboarders capitalize on their exoticism, we came up with the first (and only) blind dating show that pairs skaters with non-skaters. Follow along as one skater and one normie awkwardly navigate the space between true romance and reality TV.

Whether you skate or don’t, you may catch a glimpse of yourself in these contestants and feel the urge to find a love of your own.

For episode two of “Date a Sk8er,” we set up Natalie, a denim-plaided fashion designer and skater from the midwest, with Andy, a curly-haired DJ with a smoky voice born and raised in New York, and let them wander the bars around Jenkem HQ. A match made in heaven, or the date from hell? Watch to find out…

If you live in / can get to the NYC area, send a short profile video explaining why we should set you up to: staff@jenkemmag.com

    Ahhh c’mon. Such a great idea, but let’s see some real skaters, eh? What’s it gonna take to get Genesis on a date?

    Love this series. Can’t wait for more. Agree with yo though, would be cool to see a skater who has skated longer than a year.
