If you are a fan of Patrick O’Dell’s “Epicly Later’d” series from back in the day you are going to love this short documentary featuring Tyson Peterson, who just happen to have a new colorway out on Vans.
Yesterday Magnus today Lotties, #trendwatch 2018 continuing the video after the credits have rolled.
Is this a homage to old Girl videos like Mouse and Yeah Right where the credits where a force to be reconned with?
Who knows, who cares, when we get new Reynolds, Hsu, Brady, Spanky, Allen and a “full part” by Dane Barker
We said it before and we will say it again. Baker is back, although they were never really gone. We are nut sure if all the new released videos mean that Baker 4 will not be coming, but we definitely like their increase in productivity within the last few weeks.
“Exploring Cuba’s Skate Culture” is a documentary film about the difficulties the Cuban skate scene has to face but, on the other side, the immeasurable beauty this country has to offer. Follow Lucien Clarke, Andrew Reynolds, Ishod Wair and Arto Saari on a very unique trip through a very unique country.
Let’s start at the end and work our way to the start. Young Rowan is turning pro and rightfully so! He has been ripping quite hard for quite some time now and if he is able to bring back that late nineties Slash hat Vans needs to give him a shoe! The rest of the team is edited together in a montage. some have more some have less footage but most of them come through. Most notably Dustin Dollin who has been skating like he is a danger to his own health, comes through with a Boulala-escque power move! All in all the Baker promo does what it promises and it does it all to a soundtrack that goes well with your morning coffee and that is a very good thing.
Okay so there is a new Baker promo coming up, great! Baker has not been cool for a minute, it was still okay but it lost something for a couple of years. Now they are back, and this week they are releasing a new promo. I mean just that last scene is enough to convince us of the fact that “when you fuck with Baker that’s what you get!”
Kevin “Spanky” Long ist nach seinem Downgrade von Pro zum Amateur Status wieder mit einem eigenen Board auf Baker Skateboards ausgestattet. Und auch bei Emerica ist er seit neustem wieder als Pro gelistet.
Andrew Reynolds dazu:
“I think the biggest turning point for him came after he had decided to quit drinking and started to see how much stuff he could get done without that partying lifestyle. Fortunately, he’s still super young and can make such a big change in time so that he’s still able to get out there and kill it.
Having to call dudes up like, “You’re not gonna have a pro board anymore, man. The time’s up.” It really sucked. That was my first time ever having to do that and it definitely does not feel good.
The fact is that you can’t be a professional skateboarder forever. I’m not going to be one forever. Spanky’s not. Nobody is. But Spanky’s just been skating so much. A year went by and you can still see how serious he’s taking it. He’s filming so hard for this Emerica video when at first, we honestly weren’t so sure about it. But he’s out there skating like a professional skateboarder, bringing his board back felt like the right thing to do.”
Andrew Reynolds spricht über sein Faible für Polaroid Fotografie und wie er somit eine ganze Ära völlig unbewusst dokumentieren konnte. Von den frühen Birdhouse Tagen über die Gründung der legendären Piss Drunx bishin zur Emerica Mansion – “The Boss” konnte Geschichte ablichten.
Andrew Reynolds hat gemeinsam mit Nixon eine Capsule Collection auf die Beine gestellt, die es in sich hat. Der Boss hatte völlig freie Hand was Auswahl der Items und deren Gestaltung betrifft – herausgekommen sind allerlei Produkte für den täglichen Gebrauch. Im Video erzählt er wie es dazu kam, einem Gürtel als Quell seiner Inspiration und was die Kollektion für ihn besonders macht:
Wenn Andrew Reynolds, Leo Romero, Spanky und co. in Mexico City sind, kommen die Changos aus ihrem Domicilio gestürmt um mit den nordamerikanischen Skateboard Pros Cerveza zu trinken und La China zu rauchen. Parallel dazu liefern die Jungs aus den U.S.A Martillos ab, als ob es keinen Manana geben würde. Die Kollegen vom Jenkem Mag haben einen ausführlichen Bericht über die chaotischen Zustände – HIER entlang. Vamos a la playa!
