Keith Hufnagel

Do get Huffy!

Real Skateboards and HUF just teamed up to drop this retrospective web clip of the aforementioned shoe company's founder: the ever-so-gracious Keith Hufnagel, whose legacy is strong of having left a huge mark on both the East and West coasts of the U.S. throughout the nineties and naughts (his N.Y.C. prowess being notably documented in the Zoo York video "Peep This", in which he turns those streets upside down alongside a certain Quim Cardona). Huf has been pro for Real since 1993; and that span of twenty-five years of repping the brand is exactly what this edit aims at retracing, recycling a curated selection of clips from the past Real videos, ranging from "Non Fiction" (1997) to "Since Day One" (2011), without forgetting about "Real to Reel" (2001) and "Roll Forever" (2005). We're even gifted with some small talk and recent crusing clips; eventually, the resulting edit is as easy on the eyes as Huf's floaty style, the cameras will make many an OG nostalgic and most importantly, the whole thing is a great history lesson and source of inspiration, hopefully, straight from one of street skating's timeless pioneers!

Huf-ology

Yes, weekend is among us and, with it, time to go push around the proverbial city –even if it might be more of a fantasy in your very own village– with all your friends… And here is a serious dose of inspiration to do so, and do it right, with a sure push or flip trick in between moving and potentially hostile yellow cabs. With the poster by for such activity, AKA Keith Hufnagel, and a retrospective of all his parts for Real Skateboards, and therefore a full career of never being intimidated by any sort of street furniture, no matter how local or exotic, with always the option of just flying over it. But let's not limit our appreciation of Huf to his big ollie, oh no! Enjoy the history class about a guy that is way more than a shoe brand…

"A Decade Late" / The Howard House video

When a skaters apartment earns a name of its own, it is when it officially reaches "skate house" status, which makes it a meeting point, a permanently squatted ground and a sort of lighthouse for visitors coming from far, far away… This is exactly what was the Howard House, when that millennium was young, in one of the most dreamed about destination back then: San Francisco. From actual tenants to long term "guests", many have spend, back then, at least one night or for weeks there, a stay that would turn into improbable sessions the next day mixing all types of skating and skaters… So, why this footage is only coming out now, you'd ask? This is a story that we will tell you in the next days with the help of the in-house photographer, Richard Hart. Meanwhile, here are ten minutes of good times in between roommates and complete, as well as full part from one of the classiest man to ever step on a board: Ocean Howell. That's right. A Plaitford Productions offering!

Meeting… Jason Dill!

He doesn't do anything like others, and he was not going to change that for us…

Waitwhat!?

Wait, Montreal is in Europe, now!? Those Huf sales are going to skyrocket amongst the French Canadian activist demographics after this! On a serious note, those guys are paid by the push, right?

Euro Enduro

It is quite fascinating that at the end of 2013 some people are still discussing the idea that Dylan Rieder might be mostly famous for his looks… Seriously, the ollie up at the famous Berlin museum spot is just ridiculous!Let's not that the boss himself isn't afraid to sweat out a bit, which is nice to see.
