We lost count of how often we saw Aidan take a bad slam or hit his head on something, but that doesn´t make it less nerve-racking to watch him skate. Hopefully, FA pays this young man enough for good health insurance. In ” Randy Farkus” he continues doing his own thing with going down more steep (dirt) hills, maneuvering tricky manuals, and adding some sketchy pole jams to the mix. It´s always a treat to see some Aidan footage.

Fucking Awesome’s “420 E 9th Street”
Another instant classic by Fucking Awesome with a lot of small details in post production of the audio and photography. It’s always a lot of fun watching those edits and finding all these little references.
Featuring an outstanding Louie Lopez, Na-Kel Smith, Anthony Van Engelen, Sage Elsesser, Diego Todd, the new guy Joe Campos, Nik Stain, Ben Kadow, John Fitzgerald, Donovon Piscopo, Sean Pablo & Andrew Allen.
Anthony Van Engelen on The Green Bench
Anthony Van Engelen is telling us the whole story about the DC Video bench. Don’t judge this one by its title, the story is absolutely amazing. A video piece for Quartersnacks.
FA WORLD ENTERTAINMENT – Dancing On Thin Ice
14 Fucking Awesome minutes and a whole lot of anticipation that has been met.
Also, it feels like this is a new step for FA since this is the first of their videos with actual music.
Memory Screen: Anthony Van Engelen
Anthony Van Engelen is one of the greatest characters in skateboarding and there is no one even close to him. You can see a silhouette of AVE and you would immediately know that it is him. No wonder that Vans is holding on to him.
FA WORLD ENTERTAINMENT – Industrial Light & Magic
The FA squad have been touring through Europe.
Featuring Anthony Van Engelen, Jason Dill, Kevin Bradley, Diego Todd, Ben Kadow, Sean Pablo, Andrew Allen, Sage Elsesser, Kevin Rodrigues, Louie Lopez & Aidan Mackey.
Fucking Awesome – All The Shit Off The Internet #1
The FA cam put this out just to remind you that since the Supreme video the team has in fact been out, putting in time on the board.
Boys Of Summer 2
After the success of the first movie and the leftover montage we now get “Boys Of Summer 2”. The film has the same humor, the same behind the scenes type of feel and big-name skating that the first one had.
Still, part 2 seems more serious, less of the cuff and more focussed, you win some you lose some, see for yourself.
Fucking Awesome – Fuck a Rough Cut
The Fucking Awesome/Hockey guys skating Baltimore and Washington DC.
Featuring: Aidan Mackey, Elijah Berle, Diego Todd, John Fitzgerald, Ben Kadow, Anthony Van Engelen, Caleb Barnett & Sean Pablo.

It is a slightly longer read but if you are interested in what Greg has to offer you will be delighted!

Fucking Awesome Compilation
A Compilation of a lot of released Fucking Awesome short films, promos and etc. Everyone’s in it!
Bill Strobeck – Childhood Friend
History is important and Bill Strobeck’s path in skateboarding is comparable to being an artist in Paris during the start of the 1900’s.
Bill once said in an interview he was thinking about making a video with all his best footage and we hope this is the start of that renaissance project.
Chat – Anthony Van Engelen
It’s a simple recipe, two dudes having a chat. But when the two dudes are some of Skateboardings most beloved and stylish men then you know it’s a recipe with a delish outcome. With chat around LA from music to restaurants and it’s all topped off with photos of AVE crushing LA.
Andrew Allen’s chat formula has produced another wee tasteful delight and if you haven’t checked it out before go back read them all, it’s really your favorite skater talking shit with a bunch of your other favorite skaters.

AVE – Devil on Horseback
AVE’s image is unchanged for more than a decade now. Not sure if anyone ever lasted that long!? Here is another video of him scaring the shit out of some L.A. streets and walls.
Fairly Normal – Andrew Allen
Andrew Allen is talking about leaving Anti Hero Skateboards, living in Southern California and being sober and not having to deal with a bad hangover. We like AA and we do like What Youth. Enjoy their 23rd episode:
Under the aegis of F.A. World Entertainment Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen founded their own new company, Hockey Skateboards. Everyone who already came across productions of those two company names knows that they like to do things a little different, which is at least one of the numerous reasons they are widely celebrated for. Therefore, style-wise “Hockey II” makes no exception and the skating of Andrew Allen and Ben Kadow is just incredible!
Supreme – Leftover compilation
Once again somebody took the time to create a little Supreme style compilation clips. There is something to it though scrolling through Strobeck’s feed and collection little snippets here and there. You get Fat Bill’s style of filming with the music style of the creator (or not), but in the end something new is created. Remixing or collaging is, was and will remain one of todays most important movements in and out of skateboarding.
