Trick Tips/ Step by Step/How to..

Hello..



Previously a staple of  skateboarding magazine, similar to the infamous "slam section", the how to or trick tip is a rare find these days. Perhaps that's because most of the time they were completely useless and were more funny than actually helpful and would often follow a format of..."flip your board, land, ride away stoked".



Eric Dressen with a stylish wallride variation.. 





Rick Howard. Probably never done before or since one foot 5-0 to fakie.. 



Interesting story about this one.. I tried learning 360 flips based off of seeing this step by step. Had them for a while, then lost them. Learned them switch in the 90's, then later got them back in the early 2000's.. Later on I thought it was "Lil' Stevie", however only learned after digging it up that it was "Lil' Joe".. 




Mike V. with some vert skating advice..





Damian Carbajal+Dan Sturt=perfection..





As mentioned  in Ed Templeton''s Epicly Later'd where he gets the Circle A ad without his name..

Delay in updates is due to my retardedness at not being able to remember how to do side by side images in blogger. Think I got it now. Coming up next, The Gonz..

What skateboarding will look like in the 2020 Olympics

After reading the recent Sal Barbier Interview on the Chrome Ball Incident, (which is fantastic by the way), and also perusing the recent Thrasher Magazine article on skateboarding in the Olympics, I became curious as to what the proposed format is going to be like. Being that there have historically been many different competitive formats in skateboarding's long history (street, vert, mega ramp, luge, freestyle, etc. etc.), I couldn't help but be curious. After pondering the different possibilities I was able to track down someone from the International Olympic Committee (IOC)  who had some answers.

First how did the International Olympic Committee (IOC) come to the decision to include skateboarding? Was it someone on the committee who proposed it or if it was brought forth by a third party?

The addition of Skateboarding to the Olympic programme in the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 resulted from an 18-month process called the OCOG Proposal, where the host city (in this case, Tokyo)…

All Hail..

Repost from.. I don't know, few years ago I guess. Early Cardiel stuff really had an impact on me. Dude just went for it so hard.  Crazy that I live in the same town as him now and have come across him a few times.. My buddy that I go skate with all the time did physical therapy with him after being shot head in the head twice (yes, you read that correctly). Trip out on that..

Tom and Alex

Feeling a bit heavy after that last post... so taking a slight detour.

Great flick of the legendary Tom Penny by the equally talented Arto Saari. And Alex Olson...well, not quite sure what to say about this ollie. It doesn't make sense how someone could be capable of ollieing that high.

 Hopefully I will have the chance to go skate this weekend. My friend from Brazil Dan is in town. Such a character.. apparently he's been working on a fishing boat in Alaska for the last few months. He calls me up put of the blue and first thing he says is "hey, do you have socks and a shoestring I can borrow?" I meet him at the skatepark, he's in borrowed clothes, board, and shoes.. and it's apparent that he hasn't lost a step in what he's able to do on a skateboard. Nice ,(but also intimidating), to be around someone so talented, it pushes you to try harder.
