It regularly publishes articles (not limited to the skateboarding subject), skateboard photography, interviews with professional skateboarders, interviews with and reviews of musical groups, skatepark reviews, and miscellaneous oddities.
THRASHER is the Bible of teen culture with coverage of skateboarding,modern music and alternative activities for today's youth.Thrasher has recently started a contest called King of the Road. The KOTR contest takes 4 teams of pro skaters, gives them a book of challenges, and gives them 2 weeks to travel across the country and complete as many goals as they can. The King of the Road competition has been held every year since 2003.
In 1999 the magazine sponsored a PlayStation game called Thrasher: Skate and Destroy.
