Grey skies

If you’re not one of Her Most Gracious Majesty citizen, you might have been surprised by the announcement of an Isle team featuring Chris Jones, to the point of maybe even ask around who this might be! Well, here is a little bit of a pointer on the kind of skater he is, thanks to his previous sponsor, Crayon.

Charles' Tip: Dean Palmer

My buddy Charles likes skaters with finesse and technical abilities, without having strict rules about what is "good" or "bad" in skateboarding… Basically, he always has a good advice! “My choice goes to Dean Palmer, classic but you just can’t hate on any of this. The last trick counts many a trap. Hasn’t this guys been underrated for way too long!?”



One could lie and state this post was written and posted on the same device that allowed Raymond Molinar to film this… Which wouldn't be too far from the truth! Modern times, indeed, and in the end, those edits rip, don't they!?

An odd future, indeed…

This two appearing regularly on "cool people" Instagram accounts, often next to Jason Dill, the speculations about them stretch from "Great, more scenester kids!" to "they are Dill and AVE's new brand ams, for sure!"… Well, time will tell, but one thing is sure: this two do skate, as shown here!

Caste Quality / The Philadelphia Experiment Off-Cuts

As promised yesterday, here is, premiering on Live, a new Chris Mulhern production for Caste Quality, mixing archival footage from Ryan Gee and Andrew Foote, and the newest guard from modern days in Philly.

Meeting… Caste Quality!

The Philadelphia Experiment took everybody by surprise, but what is next for Caste, and what is it actually? Also, Are we exclusively premiering their next project tomorrow? Well, yes.


Phil Evans is always looking for ways to portrait skateboarding a bit out of the boundaries the genre offers, and nowadays he is exploring the panoramic format… Throw a concept at Nick Jensen, and watch him run with it! The result here is a really good exemple of what kind of space a skater really takes in his own environement, his city.


Up to date…

If even TWS gets on the "remixed with good ol' rap" thing… Shit talking aside, Walker Ryan has many a gems in there, some that you could even miss out on, like the manual to manual at Pappalardo's spot, which is indeed a crazy one.


Dat Neen…

We’re not necessarily part of the Hammer Quest, over here, but Neen Williams does have his own little thing going on, which mean we’ve been following him since way before he got to the Green Side of the Griptape…


In Dreams…

For those too young to know, Thomas Campbell, recognized painter and filmmaker, made his first moves behind a movie camera by putting out A Love Supreme for the notorious NYC skateshop, his very own hymn to the now long gone New York nineties. Never where you expect him, he has since made himself quite the name for his full-length surf movies, all shot on film… But, it seems that he’s back documenting skateboarding, an activity he never gave up practicing.

Charles' tip: Aaron Suski

My buddy Charles likes skaters with finesse and technical abilities, without having strict rules about what is "good" or "bad" in skateboarding… Basically, he always has a good advice!

Having Suski as a "tip" might be far fetched, but since this compilation of raw footage –seen and unseen– just came out quite on the low, you still shouldn't miss it, plus as Charles stated: "A good reminder for those that never got the Suski case?" Aaron is one of the most pleasant guy to watch skate, or have a brew with. Period!


Street Trunks

Lucas goes for another round of the Three Striped boards, and takes the opportunity to remind everybody his complete domination of all things street…
