“You need to make sure people hate it as well as love it”
This stuck with me today. I’ve always been a fan of David’s work from Death Spray Custom, and here, we finally get a look into
the man behind the paint. Even when he was kind enough to sponsor our first Monster Mash race, I was still clouded with aura of
mystery about the man behind DSD; I liked it. As you can see now, there’s obviously method in his madness.
The Quiet Leaf is a quarterly independent skateboarding publication that is based out of Seoul, Korea. Back in August I met the owner, Jin, while skating and hanging out in Seoul and he turned me onto this project of his. Issue 2 was rad! Can’t wait to check out #3. If you’re in Korea, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany, Austria, France or England, check out the stocklist and pickup the latest issue at your local shop (Hey Jin – let’s get some of these in at Fly!?). In the meantime, enjoy my buddy ZZY in this quick teaser for issue #3.
A few months back, my buddy Elliot of Studio 191 threw a photo party at Factory 5 and my friend Theo Paul Santana was there to document it. Here’s a short that Theo produced from that night last spring. Enjoy.
As far as “promos” for videos go, this one from the Philly-based crew, SABATOGE is one of the best I’ve seen in a while. I mean, everything SABATOGE puts out is always top-notch, but this promo has been on repeat for me all week. I gave it a quick watch last night before skating and successfully filmed 3 clips, all off the lingering hype from this promo. That hasn’t happened for me in a while…
Featuring Ishod Wair, Brian Douglas,Jon Hadley, Juan Algora, Josh Kalis, Mark Suciu, Walker Ryan, Jamal Smith, Tore Bevivino, Joey O’Brien and a full part from Dylan Sourbeer. Get ready for SABATOGE4 coming 9/11/2015.
Incase you missed Monster Children’s Table Talk, Episode 2 featuring Geoff McFetridge, here it is. Hosted by Chris Pastras, this short will take you through Geoff’s studio and give you a little insight into his creative process. Don’t ‘miss this one!
This right here is pure gold. The geniuses at Dime & Alltimers know that sex sells, so they’ve created the first ever skateboard specifically designed for girls to ride. After running preliminary tests on a number of female subjects, research proven their hypothesis to be correct. Ryan Gosling on a skateboard is an obvious win.
