Simon Woodstock & Alan Petersen '98 Interviews

Posted on September 12th, 2012 by kevin

While rummaging through some boxes the other day, I came across a couple old issues of Electric Ink Magazine. Electric Ink was a free micro sized(about 5.5" x 4") mag you'd find at Orange County or beach city skate shops in the later 1990's. The mag had decent skate editorial but also covered surf, snow, [...]

Here's a 2005 interview with Sandy Bodecker, the man behind the curtain at Nike Skateboarding.

Paulo Diaz Opening Doors

Posted on August 17th, 2012 by kevin

Here's a Reminisce article with Gabe Morford where he gives the backstory on a Paulo Diaz photo from 1993. Such a rad story to read while picturing the session in my head. Paulo has always been one of our favorites and is a true legend in more ways than one. Article from Slap December 2000.

1994 Magazine Posters

Posted on August 15th, 2012 by kevin

Was flipping through a few 1994 magazines the other day when 2 posters caught my attention. They were in complete contrast to each other, yet captured my imagination equally. So I figured I'd post them. One of the most underrated of all time. Ronnie Creager at the World Park. TWS July 1994. And Adam [...]

Happy Birthday to Us

Posted on August 12th, 2012 by kevin

Well, it's been 2 years now since Sean & I first introduced our Library to the world. And although we've had a few setbacks, we've also made a few archiving strides along the way. But none of this would have been possible without a few friends lending us countless videos & magazines, and responding to [...]

Sadlands

Posted on March 9th, 2012 by kevin

Tucked away in Southern California's Orange County, Sadlands was one of skateboarding's hot spots for a majority of the 1980's. And in being less than 15 miles from where I grew up, was a place my friends and I would constantly nag our parents to take us to. We were clueless kids at the time, so we mostly [...]

Diamonds Are Forever

Posted on March 7th, 2012 by kevin

It's hard to believe today marks 5 years since Shane Cross and his infectious smile left this Earth. Shane was a wonderfully upbeat individual who left a lasting impact on everyone he met as well as on the sport he held so dear. And although Shane is gone, we can all still stand to learn something from [...]

Nike SB Fall '07 Catalog Pics

Posted on February 6th, 2012 by kevin

Here are a few gems from a Nike SB Fall '07 catalog. I was scanning the catalog for it's shoe images, but figured I'd post the action photos as well since they haven't seen much light of day and all have more than their fair share of style.

The Inland Empire Strikes Back

Posted on February 1st, 2012 by kevin

It's not arrogance when I say that the Inland Empire has produced some of the finest skateboarding in the world. From Chris Miller to the admirable ingenuity of Eric Koston, the Inland Empire produces generation upon generation of innovative skateboarders. In addition to excellence in all types of skateboarding, it's given us some great characters as well.

Was digging through some old magazines and came across this interview with Ed Templeton talking about his art and photography. This was from the November 2001 issue of Juxtapoz. Was a good read so figured I'd archive it here, enjoy.

Remembering Van Wastell

Posted on September 3rd, 2011 by kevin

We recently sat down with Eddie Villa to discuss and remember his brother Van Wastell who's life was tragically cut short on 9/5/2008. Van was a rare bright spot on the skateboard world and one of it's biggest up and coming talents before unexpectedly leaving this Earth. Van is greatly missed but will never be forgotten.

Chad Fernandez on MTV's The Blame Game

Posted on August 19th, 2011 by kevin

Was going through a friends old dubbed VHS tapes the other day and stumbled across this episode of MTV's The Blame Game with Chad Fernandez. I'd never even heard of this show and at first was thoroughly confused as to what I was even watching but after a few minutes couldn't look away. It was like a car [...]

Was scanning a Transworld from 2001 earlier today and caught myself completely zoning out on these Deluxe England Summer Tour photos. Looks like Huf was on the trip as well but just didn't get a photo in the article for whatever reason.

Anti-Hero and the Bandit Part II

Posted on June 27th, 2011 by kevin

In being a fairly loyal Anti-Hero consumer for 13 years now, I've watched Julien run the gamut of hilarious graphics and products that I wished I'd kept. There have been countless series mocking the American media and priceless Gerwer graphics, but there are 2 items in particular that enter my mind more [...]

Real Skateboards Since Day One video

Posted on April 15th, 2011 by kevin

A few days ago I received an envelope tightly wrapped in red Deluxe Distribution tape and the sight of it nearly made my eyes pop out of my head. This was it... this is what I'd been waiting for... it was finally here. After nearly 2 weeks of monitoring Slap's Real "Since Day One" thread I finally had [...]

Jason Rothmeyer Interview

Posted on March 10th, 2011 by kevin

For most of the 1990's Jason Rothmeyer and a tight knit crew of friends ran Long Beach and it's surrounding areas, leaving a mark on skateboarding that is still seen to this day. I recently got the chance to sit down with the Jedi Master of skate nerds and discuss this golden age of skateboarding and [...]

Personally, I tuned out of the Battle At The Berrics after BATB1. But for those interested, I compiled all the Battle At The Berrics 3 matches into 1 convenient playlist and removed those annoying DC ads.

Big Brother Magazine Trading Cards

Posted on September 3rd, 2010 by sean

We came across a stash of old Big Brother Magazine trading cards, including the coveted Goofy Boy. I scanned them in and combined the front and back together so you can see the stats on the back side, which are usually the best part.
