From what started as a hobby in 2003, Rob and Reija Collinson have taken their San Francisco based ‘zine and grown it into an internationally distributed skateboard magazine. “The first issue was a ten page xerox ‘zine, which I made at work,” Rob explained. With limited funds and self-admittedly mediocre photo skills, Rob and his now wife Reija kept on putting out issues of Lowcard.
“It was really a slow process growing — first doing it out of our small apartment to a bigger spot and bigger and so on,” Reija said. “Around 2005, I could see that people were really excited about we were doing.”
