March Logo Madness

Posted on March 10th, 2014 by kevin

The folks at Design & Conquer have a pretty rad bracketed tournament of skate logos running this week. Check it out and vote for your favorite brand logo, it only takes a second. I'm predicting an Independent vs Spitfire finals match-up, but hey, what the hell do I know.

Jay Thorpe Photos

Posted on January 2nd, 2014 by kevin

I came across these Jay Thorpe photos while cleaning out some stuff over the holidays. They were on a disc along with this contact sheet in an envelope I must have meant to give to Jay. Sorry homie! So I'm gonna post them here rather than bury em for another decade. Jay Thorpe has one of the smoothest, [...]

Nick Trapasso & Pat Pasquale 2006 Check Out's

Posted on December 3rd, 2013 by kevin

Was flipping through a few 2006 Transworld's over the weekend when I came across Check Out's for Nick Trapasso and Pat "Sinner" Pasquale. Now I've been a Nick Trapasso fan since his tie-dyed Toy Machine amateur days, but just recently became a Sinner fan after adding Shake Junt's Chicken Bone Nowison [...]

Monty Nolder 1986 Pro Spot Light

Posted on November 29th, 2013 by kevin

Here's a Monty Nolder Pro Spot Light interview from Transworld's October 1986 issue. Monty had a fluid style and created one of skateboarding's best looking tricks in the backside smith grind, but never fully received the credit he so richly deserved. Monty also left his mark by, as far as I know, becoming [...]

How To Make A Grip Tape Stencil

Posted on November 27th, 2013 by kevin

As graphic grip tape becomes increasingly popular, we thought we'd post this How-To on making grip tape stencils. It seems pretty straightforward and you should already have most of the necessary materials. I wish we had something like this in my day. Back then we took the paint pen approach but at $4 [...]

Rick Jaramillo 1996 Transworld Interview

Posted on September 5th, 2013 by kevin

Here's a short Rick Jaramillo interview from Transworld's March 1996 issue. Rick J's a good friend and skate rat who can still whoop some ass in a game of S.K.A.T.E. Definitely one of the more underrated skaters of the 1990's. And for a seriously in-depth interview with Rick, check out his Chrome Ball [...]

Streethorsing

Posted on August 29th, 2013 by kevin

I remember first hearing about streethorsing, I dismissed it as a joke. I mean the mere idea of riding a horse through the city on and over spots seemed pretty preposterous to say the least. But as time passed, the rumors grew and we began to understand the unique relationship between Ryan Galfando and [...]

It's sad to hear Skateboarder Magazine is calling it quits again, I thoroughly enjoyed that magazine and hope they continue with their Raiders of the Archives segments online. In flipping through some past issues, I came across this Quirk page of Pixel Professionals and got a good laugh. It reminded me [...]

Mike McGill's Skatepark Photos

Posted on August 15th, 2013 by kevin

I came across a few photos from Mike McGill's Skatepark the other day while rummaging through some boxes. I made it down to McGill's Skatepark a half dozen times or so and it was an absolute blast. They had mini ramps of every size and shape, and Mike McGill and his dad were always friendly and courteous [...]

Parks Middle School Closer Look

Posted on August 2nd, 2013 by kevin

Was driving near Parks Middle School the other day and thought I'd stop by to check what if anything was still skateable. Parks has a long history with skating and no shortage of obstacles, but unfortunately most of said obstacles are pretty chunky, skate stopped, and an easy target for the Orange County [...]

Here's a Larry Clark interview that ran in Big Brother number 18(July 95). In it, Larry Clark discusses how he got the idea for the movie Kids, his exposure to skateboarding, why he cast skaters as actors, and more. Jeff Pang also touched on meeting Larry and the filming for Kids in his Chrome Ball interview [...]

Skateboarding's First Streetstyle Event

Posted on July 19th, 2013 by kevin

After browsing through the Street League Portland recap, it got me thinking how far street contests have come and evolved over the years. Below is a recap of the first ever "Streetstyle Event" held in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on April 17th, 1983. Tommy Guerrero won the contest as a unsponsored [...]

John Drake talks ANIMAL Skateboards

Posted on May 14th, 2013 by kevin

Let's start off with a little catch up. Unfortunately, knee trouble derailed your career in '98... what have you been up to since then? Well I moved to Charlotte, NC and went to college for graphic design, studied some photography. Ended up graduating and working at The Mint Museums there in Charlotte [...]

In realizing we could do some fun stuff with our Library info, a skate trivia game seemed logical. So we proudly present Skate Pop, the world's largest and most extensive skateboard trivia game.

Mike Hill Check Out

Posted on November 15th, 2012 by kevin

Here's a Check Out of Alien Workshop co-founder/art director Mike Hill from his old G&S days. The Check Out touches on Mike's skate background, his midwest "Squid Meat" zine, and his goal of one day being a computer artist. Looks as though Mike reached that goal and then some. Article from Transworld [...]

Mark Appleyard Polaroid Photo

Posted on October 31st, 2012 by kevin

I was showing my daughter how Polaroid camera's work yesterday, and got me thinking about this old Mark Appleyard photo I shot. This was shortly after Mark had gotten on Flip so I'd date it around 2000 or 2001. It was for an Active ad, although I'm not sure it ever got used, so I figured I'd give it a [...]

Chris Miller Pipeline Poster

Posted on October 22nd, 2012 by kevin

While perusing the internet last week I noticed that J. Grant Brittain printed a few classic photos, and am happy to report I received my Chris Miller poster over the weekend. After I unrolled it, so many memories came rushing back to me. I must have stared at it for a good 10 minutes before looking away. [...]

Shaun White & Mike Frazier '96 Interviews

Posted on September 18th, 2012 by kevin

In light of Shaun White's recent antics I figured I'd post this Grom Profile from the April 1996 issue of Electric Ink Magazine. Shaun was in the 3rd Grade back then, was just beginning to skate vert and had hopes of one day becoming a pro snowboarder. Well, he's definitely achieved his dream and then [...]
