Jenkem Magazine is an online site that is solely dedicated to skateboarding culture. When perusing through the articles hosted there, one will see topics ranging from 'The Skateboarders Guide to the 2016 U.S. Predidential Election' to 'Skate Porn for You to Wack To.' Just based off of the content, it seems that the Jenkem's main target market is young Gen Z and Millennial men who identify with the skateboarding subculture.

What's interesting is that the company is branching out from its regular digital forum and launching its first print issue, 'Jenkem Vol 1.' The skateboarding mag went all out with their first edition making it a hardcover and full-color glossy paged magazine. Putting online content to print seems to be going in reverse in today's digital age, but youth culture has a penchant for vintage and nostalgia -- the high quality book doubling as a magazine may serve to fill that need.
