Pool Dust is a long-running skate zine that was published throughout the 1990s in Seattle, WA by Chris "Wez" Lundry, who relocated to Tempe, AZ and has continued to publish the zine there. The zine has continuously been a fun romp through skateboard culture featuring lots of pictures, skate park and skating trip reviews, band interviews and more.
Pool Dust started in 1988 out of Seattle, and is still published sporadically from Tempe, AZ, where the editor Wez Lundry now lives. Pool Dust's focus has always been pool skating, which remains the one true underground form of skating. It has also always had punk rock content, and featured a bunch of band interviews in the mid-90s that had bands facing each other and playing leisure games like the Fallouts versus the Man-Tee-Mans at croquet, the Diesel Queens versus Steel Wool at Bocce, the Sinister Six versus th Wedgwood Bombers at lawn darts, Head versus Gas Huffer at bowling, the Solid Statesmen versus the Statics at laser tag, etc. It also published columns such written by such luminaries as Suzy Creamcheese, Haywood Jablowmne, Cuddles Lollipop, Jr., and Dick Charles, reported to be a Seattle area punk rock celebrity, but whose real identity was never revealed. The mag now comes out sporadically, about once every two years, but you can go to the website for more info or to get a t-shirt or whatever. Damn, Pool dust is almost 20 years old...
