Daew-ON Video

"DAEWON" is a full-length documentary on the eponymous skater (with Song as his last name): a longtime fine technician with Korean origins who pretty much started writing the chapter on technical street skateboarding in the history of the activity, stringing together lines of complicated maneuvers and flip-in, flip-out prowess on anything resembling a potential obstacle - all in between two gloomy, grimy L.A. carparks or concrete schoolyards. Joe Pease directed the film, for TransWorld and Adidas. Coinciding with the recent launch of Thank You Skateboards, Daewon's board company with Torey Pudwill, the release of such a piece is a considerable push for the pair all the while succeeding at remaining an indirect one, as the narrative really focuses on Daewon's background, covering from as far as his Beryl Banks days in the era of the World Industries video "Love Child" (with Steve Rocco as a godfather), and up to his current Instagram skate king status. "Trilogy" and the tragic fate of Daewon's background track also gets brought up, as well as his symbolic, symbiotic skate tech wrestling with Rodney Mullen, or the Deca days; the DVS video, "Skate More", too, and also "Cheese And Crackers". Certain specific happenings in Daewon's career - such as the short-lived Artafact, or the occasional profusion of tanktops - were left out it seems but globally, the eventual depiction is a great representation of one of skateboarding's technical pioneers that isn't without suggesting the taste of what an episode of ON Video on him could have been. In actuality though, here's the one they did on Mullen in 2002 as a bonus.

Off Paris

This is it, Paris Das Days are over (for the moment we hope...) even the best things have an end, but to comfort you here is the cream of adidas skaboardong destroying every spot they crossed in Paris. A little bit of Blondey Mccoy, Marc Johonson, and especially Heitor Da Silva in the spotlight at his best, no wonder with such a fluid style and ease, it's crazy how everything seems so simple when you look at him making it.

Meantime, in London…

With such a casting, in one of the most photogenic city when it comes to skating, one was expecting something amazing… But, dammit!

Off Broadway…

Adidas in NYC, you know if it going to be good, especially considering the caliber of the new ams joining in, but Rodrigo… Goddam', Rodrigo!!!

Back!

Or how the "feel good movie" of this Sunday has been filmed in one day, using one obsolete camera… As for the return of the Staple, we will let the shoe fetishists give their opinion!

20 years of Chocolate

Now that makes for a lot of footage to remix for Manolo, but he isn't the one to rush it, is he? Some amazing work, and a great display of class, whatever the era we speak about!

Rickk Alert #2!

Yes, you will be able to see Rick Howard skate, and if this wouldn't be enough for you, Marc Johnson noseslides a mountain, and Rick McCrank murders it all…

Rickk Alert!

This Lakai tour stop at the Montreal DIY spot gives us the great chance to see Rick Howard do what he does best: rip with finesse!

A little public service announcement

You might not have register yet, but those three have decided to bring it back to the roots with their The Back Forty project, and this little message from them seems ideal to us to wish you a great new year full of sessions messing around with the homies!

You need that tape!

The 20 years of Girl skateboards are still being celebrated, and we will not complain about that that! Here, the good people at Orchard skateshop (Boston) add their take on it, with a mixtape of their favorite parts, selected all along the years of the brand, and put together the old school way. Let's note the old parts steal the show, especially the curtains. Off course you know which part it is… Proof, once again, that things never get old when they are good.

The endless story

Today must be the "tech but nice on the eyes" day, with this large bonus of Marc Johnson, made of "nearly good enough" for Pretty Sweet –the gift that keeps on giving– for Lakai.
