Retro Returns #7: Think Dudes in ‘The Portugal Recollection’

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Since the exclusive content archives run pretty deep here at, we’re serving up something from the past on a weekly basis (or whenever we remember to do it)…

This isn’t too much of an oldie, but since the Think team was recently in Vancouver (check out our Instagram recap) we decided it fitting to look back at a video we posted nearly a year ago to the date. Think TM Justin Carlson assembled some clips featuring Russ Milligan, Josh Matthews and special guest Kevin Lowry to supplement an article we did called The Portugal Recollection in Issue 113 (flip through it on your cpu or mobile device right here).

Filmed and edited by: Justin Carlson
Post-production elements: David Ehrenreich
Song: “Too Many Rules” (1961/Portuguese version) by Connie Francis

Insta Recap: Think in Vancouver

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

This is as good of an excuse as any to remind you to follow us on Instagram (@concreteskatemag). On June 2nd, as part of the Think (@think_skateboards) Business in the Pacific Northwest tour, we organized a Metro Vancouver Park Barge with Ultimate Dist.(@ultimatedist). No formal demo settings with sound systems and sidelines, just a kicked back suburban park tour with Adrian Williams (@ace_boogee), Josh Matthews (@joshmatthews_), Joey Guevara (@joey_guevara), Pat Moran (#oldpatttt) and fellow Canadians Russ Milligan (@russmilligan) and Lee Yankou (#leeyankou).

Our video specialist David Ehrenreich was in the mix, so stay tuned for an edit. There’s an obvious Instagram theme here – virtually every step of the tour was documented via the photo sharing app. Here are a few Insta highlights from Think’s visit to Vancouver:

Lee Yankou, back noseblunt.
