Skull Skates Blues Guitar

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Long-time pro skateboarder, cancer survivor, guitar builder, blues musician, father of four, and seller of shred-sleds at Ultimate Distribution; I think Craig Williams has definitely earned the right to have his name on a Skull Skates board.

Antihero’s Destination Unknown

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

Leave it to Julien Stranger and the Antihero crew to drop a video this radical without any advanced notice. If this doesn’t make you want to hit the road with your crew there might be something wrong with you.

Isn’t life strange, and rad, and fucked up… Thank fucking skateboarding for the grounding and perspective in this shit stew of consumer capitalism and naked hypocrisy. Keep it raw. Keep it lurkie.

The Slamlot

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

If you’re a big fan of “The Sandlot” like us, you’re going to love this video from WKND.

Valentine

Monday, November 17th, 2014

If you’re like us, you watch a lot of skate clips online everyday, and skim past even more that don’t perk your interests. This is not one to skim past. Skatepark edits are at least a penny a dozen at this point, cool to share amongst friends but generally not inspired or packed with enough action to warrant multiple viewings, if any viewings at all. This two-and-a-half minute clip from the Vancouver plaza, filmed by Jake Kuzyk (Civic Affair) and titled “Valentine” is a nice change from seeing a barrage of quick clips on mini-hubbas and close-ups of trucks grinding in slow-motion.

Featuring Ryan Witt, Dane Pryds, Landon Avramovic, Dave Livingston, and Will Blakley. Good stuff boys.
