Texas Death Match 2010 With Fowler & Johnson

March 23, 2010

SXSW is out, TDM is in. Ethan Fowler’s musical project Green & Wood was one of many great bands to provide the epic accompaniment to the Converse X Thrasher Texas Death Match 2010 skate jam. Witness the nauseating effects of heat combined with moonshine and skating on what appears to be a near-perfect mini. Converse doesn’t mess around when they provide the aggro apparatus. Head over to ThrasherMagazine.com for more coverage.

The Skateboard Mag: Product Geek Approved

March 16, 2010

We all know that TSM is a legit mag. They do it right, and we were pleasantly surprised to see that they Geek’d out on the new Broadcast Wheel Company line. A biggy thanks goes out to the fine folks at The Skateboard Mag for noticing a little brand like Broadcast.

“There’s a new wheel company on the block called Broadcast, and the wheels and team are both looking good. Heavy-hitting pros like Ethan Fowler, Gareth Stehr, Paul Shier, Danny Falla, and Shiloh Greathouse are nothing to be taken lightly. And as far as the urethane goes, Broadcast has all sorts of shapes and sizes and some sweet colors to boot. Try ’em out when you get the chance.” – The Skateboard Mag.  Go to your local skate shop, pick up a copy of Issue 73 and enjoy.

Broadcast Am Shane Cox Doing It Proper In Portland

March 16, 2010

“Last week I took my first trip up to Portland to visit a lady friend for a few days. Despite it raining most of the trip I was lucky enough to find some time to skate.  I was really stoked to skate Burnside cause I’ve been wanting to go there since I was about 12.  I could only skate maybe half of the park cause the other half was wet and subsequently slippery as shit, but it was awesome just to be there.  The fullpipe shot is at Pier Park.  All of the parks up there are so much more interesting than So-Cal parks and getting to skate giant stuff like that without having to wear pads or a helmet was rad.  I can’t wait to get back up to the city in the spring when it’s a bit more dry and skate some of the awesome street spots I saw.  Gonna have to remember to bring skate shoes next time though… that was 40 bucks I didn’t need to spend.” — Shane Cox

Catching Up With Joel Meinholz

March 15, 2010

Joel Meinholz, bitchez. Anyone who has been following his skating already knows that Joel’s been in it for the long haul, and that he possesses a style and power that can only come from skating the gritty terrain he is so prone to session. He’s got some rad footage in conjunction with the new Rasa Libre flick, where you can see the video of this back noseblunt. Atta boy, Meinholz.

Machotaildrop Teaser

March 12, 2010

From the mind(s) of Corey Adams and Alex Craig comes their most recent motion picture Machotaildrop. This award-winning movie is beyond clever: it’s just plain awesome. Not like awesome as in “totally awesome,” but awesome as in awe-inspiring. Like awestruck… or awe-striking. Like thunder from down under struck.  Featuring the well-groomed mugs of John Rattray, Rick McCrank, Steve Olson, and Frank Gerwer, Machotaildrop is the type of feature film that we have been waiting for. Did anybody ever see The Skateboard Kid? This will be better than that.

Broadcast Yo Self: Joey Adamczyk (FEBRUARY CHAMPION)

March 9, 2010

This is what’s up: a dude with a nearly impossible-to-pronounce surname ripping all sorts of spots. Broadcast Yo Self is the moving-picture catalyst by which we allegorically open our doors to the public and allow shredders from around the world the chance to be featured on our website. Each month we will sift through our submissions (to submit, simply send us your YouTube or Vimeo link on this page) and choose one unlucky brute to partake in the awesomeness that will be known throughout cyber eternity as Broadcast YoSelf. It’s certainly not going to make anybody famous, but we want the 2 or 3 people that check our website each month to enjoy some fresh content. In addition to the dishonor of appearing on thisisabroadcast.com, the winning skater each month will receive a Broadcast T-shirt. Plus you’re going to start getting phone calls from potential sunglass sponsors and babes in neon bikinis. So congratulations Joey Adamczyk, you’ve got yourself a new tee. Check back in a few to see next month’s winner.
