Carlsbad Gets Action Sports Media Company

by The Editors on August 6, 2008

Za42Db6Bef6Ab82018825749C005Fff041Transworld Media, the longtime Oceanside-based publisher of seven action sports magazines (including Skateboarding, Snowboarding, and Motocross magazines) is pulling up its business and moving to Carlsbadistan at 2052 Corte del Nogal according to a story in the North County Times.

It will be a big shift for Transworld, a popular niche publisher that has called Oceanside home since Larry Balma, a manufacturer of skateboard parts, started TransWorld Skateboarding magazine in 1983. . . .”It’s going to be kind of a hard thing” to see the Oceanside building shuttered, said Balma’s wife, Louise, a former Transworld employee and city planning commissioner. “But they’re going to a new building —- it’s going to be all fresh and clean, and everybody’s all excited.”

Welcome to Carlsbadistan. It’s about time you got out of the slums and moved uptown. Free stickers for everyone.
