43 is an independent, non-profit, skateboard magazine dedicated to quality, photography, and arts.

the magazine launched on october 27, 2011, with a catered, open bar, photography show at recess in soho, manhattan, new york.

43 is the only skateboard magazine based in new york city.


43 is a forgotten name for the trick more commonly known as a frontside no-comply. this magazine is a 43 on the skateboard world, putting one foot down, turning it around, while continually moving forward. we’re presenting the essence of skateboarding by not complying with conventional guidelines and formulae.


the magazine is a square the size of a vinyl record cover. vinyl is a traditional medium with a full and rich sound. this appreciation has seen a revival against the overuse of lower quality, digital mp3 audio.
