Broadcast Yo Self: Gary Petrovich (APRIL CHAMPION)

May 26, 2010

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 and choose one unlucky brute to partake in the awesomeness that will be known throughout cyber eternity as Broadcast YoSelf. If you’re a participator and not a hater, send your vid to us on this page: and put Broadcast Yo Self in the subject line. It’s certainly not going to make anybody famous, but we want the 4 or 5 people that check our website each month to enjoy some fresh content. In addition to the dishonor of appearing on, the winning skater each month will receive a Broadcast T-shirt. Oh, and you’re going to start getting phone calls from potential cell phone sponsors. So congratulations Gary Petrovich, you’ve got yourself a new tee. Check back in a few to see next month’s winner.

As far as footwear brands are concerned, éS Skateboarding has one of the most impressive backgrounds and commitment to innovation. Since the brand originally launched fifteen years ago, it has seen many ups and downs, but has always managed to keep an impressive family roster and make some amazingly functional footwear. With a team like Sal Barbier, Eric Koston, Tom Penny, Mark Appleyard, Bob Burnquist, and Paul Sharpe, how could you go wrong? They recently launched a timeline website that we felt was definitely worth mentioning here. Visit for a roll down mammary lane.

nolan-johnson-thrasherYou all remember the Texas Death Match presented by Cons and Thrasher we posted about a while back? Nolan was terrorizing the place in his usual style, and scored this sweet full page photo in the latest Thrasher Magazine. You think you can do that backside single footed power soar? Think again. Mister Johnson rides a Welcome.

In other news, the Blueprint Skateboards video Make Friends With The Color Blue is one of the most inspiring skate videos of the past few years, so if you get a chance to buy a copy or at least view it, please do.
