To ring in the new year, Nike SB has given their whole site a new facelift with plenty of new products, bio, photos and videos with the team. Be sure to checkout Jason Hernandez’s new montage "Around the World with Nike SB."
Roll over to the Thrasher site and take a look at a little video put together by Joey Digital of Matt Beach, Brad Staba, Shane O’Neill, John Motta and Dan Plunkett skating the Thrasher park and Staba’s quarter pipe in his backyard. It’s pretty rare these days to see new footage of Beach skating, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint.
This past summer Fuel TV caught up with Jon Humphries to film a little interview. Jon talks about how and why he got into photography, his early start with black and white film, and printing. He also talks about his new interest in directing commericals for Nike SB. Also, if you look closely you’ll see photos of Dept locals Nich Kunz, Mikey Burton and Compton. Keep an eye for an upcoming article with these guys in The Skateboard Mag in the very near future.
Some of you reading this post are wondering, who in the hell is Mark Waters? Believe it or not, Mark is one of the most well known guys in skateboarding. Having worked at Transworld, Tum Yeto, Woodward and most recently at Sole Tech, Mark is bound to have all sort of crazy stories.
Sit back, relax, and listen to Mark talk about living with infamous lens man Dan Sturt and the time Heath Kirchart knocked out a weird Hawaiian surfer. Trust me, this video is well worth the clicks.
I’ve personally never met Nolan Johnson, but lately he’s been making quite a name for himself in the Northwest and abroad. Make sure to checkout this video part of Nolan destroying Skatebarn’s vert ramp, it’s like watching a time-warp straight from the 80’s.
The Transworld site was kind enough to hook Nick up with a “Wednesday Woe.” Check out a minute of Nick getting worked in this video of some of his roughest slams. On a side note, the Ren and Stimpy theme song is probably the most appropriate music Nick could ever skate to.
Seattle’s own Josh Anderson has been couch surfing down south with his friends over at Organika for the past few months. Take a look at Josh’s line on the Transworld site along with Jimmy Carlin, Daniel Lebron, Rodrigo Peterson and Rodrigo TX. Something tells me we’ll be seeing a lot more of Josh in the future.
It’s been a while since Chris Lambert was a house hold name in the skateboard world and to my surprise he’s still hanging around. Looks like Mr. Lambert found himself a new TV gig and a new identity as well. Too bad those guys haven’t heard of MTV’s show ‘Scarred’. Who knows, maybe there is some footage of him doing a back 180 over a dumpster?
Back in late September, some of the WeSC riders made a trip up to Portland. Watch Chris Pastras, Clint Peterson, Tony Manfre, Cooper Wilt and Tony Karr skate some local parks. They even managed to find one of our more random skate spots- the Alpenrose Dairy plant. It’s hard to believe there are llamas, ponies and old western town mock up at a good skate spot.
The Northwest has been getting all sorts of coverage on The Berrics lately. Take a look at Shane Auckland’s newest Sk8rats montage featuring Josh Anderson, Compton and Jordan Trohan. And keep an eye out for Compton, something tells me he’ll be skating the Beaverton park in the very near future.
Exit Real World recently entered Transworld’s East vs. West Shop Video Contest. Take a look at some sick footage of Sebo, the Billups, Hanson, Elliot and Trevor Ward. Make sure to vote, because these guys are definitely killing it.
