Today, Active launched phase one of its three-part complete Web site re-design. The all-new Active News section delivers comprehensive skateboarding news and up-to-the-minute coverage, as correspondents now have the ability to post stories, event results, photos and video from the field using mobile technology.

Within the massive amount of content, site users can easily access and browse articles in more than 30 different categories, including videos, photo galleries, specific team riders, contests and more. Users may also browse the entire Active News archive full of more than three years worth of skateboarding news.
There are numerous other ways people can now get active with the Active News section. The capability to post comments on all articles lets users stay connected with the skateboarding community. Active News also features an Event Calendar, assuring that users never miss an Active demo or event again, and you’ll know about all the important upcoming dates as soon as they are planned.

The Active News section also features all current promotions and sales and RSS feeds, which users can subscribe to and get the latest updates on their home page or news reader. In addition, users can also subscribe to comment feeds through RSS, informing them when others are participating in their discussion, and ICal Users can subscribe to Active’s Event Calendar with the click of a mouse.
