On the heels of the Jason Dill interview over at Chrome Ball....

Have to admit I've never been a major Dill fan, although I've always admired his skating. Good to get a bit more insight into his personality. Dude is funny!

Anywho, he mentioned bringing back the veneer stained mulit colored boards like H-Street used to have then goes on to mention "Not the New H-Street" video which has always been hands down one of my favorites.

Which brings me to the point...one thing that I've thought has been missing in skating for a long, long time is the pairing of Classical Music with skating in videos.. not to sound too much like a prat, but to me this really is a great combination. To illustrate my point:




Works really well with the slow motion.




Can't leave out this part! RIP..


Also, have something really special planned for later this week or early next week so be sure to check back. You won't want to miss this..


Did Miley Cyrus really try to rip off the Powell logo? Numpty!

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.
