New Alex Olson footage always lets our hearts skip a beat. This time Nine One Seven teamed up with the surf brand Token to bring us a 50% skate/ 50% surf video. Why not? In the end, skateboarding has its roots in surfing.
Some people have compared Nolan Benfield’s style to that of Mike Carroll, we don’t know if that is true but press play and make up your own mind.
Check out all the 917 crew + some bonus people by pressing play.
The best thing about the internet skate video revolution is that it brings us, skaters, that might not be “pro-level” but that do make you want to go out and skate.
Genesis Evans is one of those skaters, a little Alex Olson cameo doesn’t hurt either.
Most of you saw the 917 video and as with almost any “big” video nowadays multiple filmers where involved in making that project become a reality. 2two2 provides us with the perspective of Sean Dahlberg the person who actually filmed those tricks. Enjoy!
Finally, something we have been waiting on for a long time: the first full-length video presentation from Alex Olson’s Call Me 917. Now we are not going to give you a full video description but we will give you at least a few of our highlights.
First off, Alex Olson skates to a Rap Song by Nakel Smith, Secondly, the video consists of the team and their friends and last but not least, the soundtrack feels like a cross between an Anti-Hero video and Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2’s score.
Honestly, go watch the video. It is not what we expected, it is better:
We had an Interview about Call me 917 from our Issue 58 “The Handshake”, where Alex Olson talks about not skating because he’s been kept busy with the business side of running two companies, while the rest of the team is just out there. Don’t worry Alex, those guys are getting it.
Check the date, no coincidence! Call Me 917 and Nike SB are making common cause with this one! Heavy!
Featuring: Hugo Boserup, Max Palmer, Nik Stain, Cyrus Bennett, Aaron Loreth and, of course, Alex Olson.
We posted the two Quartersnacks Copenhagen offcuts now here is the final result. Filmed by the prolific Johnny Wilson with skating by Ishod Wair, Alex Olson, Bobby Worrest, Hjalte Hallberg, Oski, Andrew Wilson, Cyrus Bennett, Ville Wester, Hugo Boserup, Max Palmer and Ryan Bobier.

For those of you that are lucky enough to live near some mountains, you might have heard some of your snowboarding homies talk about Antix headwear. Some of you might feel that sometimes when skateboarding and snowboarding come together it did not always have the right result but remember Rick Mccrank, John Cardiel and more recently a great snowboarder/skater by the name of Jed Anderson landed himself a spot on Alex Olson’s Call me 917, so it is possible. Antix seems to be heading in the right direction as well, the Sony VX1000 hat is something that we could envision GX1000 doing as well and it doesn’t get rawer than those hill bombing freaks.
Making an Instagram remix is like making a mixtape for somebody you like. Whether you are sitting by your tape recorder or you are scrolling through the gram, it is a tedious process done with love for the subject. In the end the only difference is that with the IG compilation the result is on the net for everybody to enjoy.
Vincent Touzery has been killing it lately and Quartersnacks said it best “There are a handful of Bloby Instagram compilations out there, but this new one of Vincent Touzery is the best Bloby IG comp out there.”
