Grey Magazine Asks Kevin & Paul About Their Blueprint Banes

December 28, 2010

Grey Skateboard Magazine quizzes Paul Shier and Kevin Coakley about their most memorable tricks in Make Friends With the Color Blue. Kevin asserts that “the wallie fifty fifty on the rainbow bar was pretty memorable… The biggest problem was the landing because the brick surface was so bad. It was pretty much impossible to roll away from… This was the first day, first spot of the trip and [after ten tries] I absolutely killed myself. I ended up rolling my ankle really badly… Then we ended up finding a piece of wood [for a landing] and sure enough next go was a make. I probably could have saved myself from so much pain if we had that wood in the first place. Oh well, I guess that’s how it is sometimes. You’ve got to put in the work but in the end it’s always worth it. In the video the trick itself didn’t look like it was too hard but at least it made for a good slam. It was easily one of the hardest tricks for me in my whole part.” (Source: Grey Skateboard Mag)

December 16, 2010

Welcome to the concluding episode of Broadcast Yo Self for 2010. You ought to already know this by now, but Broadcast YoSelf is the motion-picture catalyst where skaters from around the world get to put their video edits on our website. Each month in 2010 we sifted through our submissions and featured a new video created by you. Since you’ve seen enough mainstream skate cinema already, sit back and enjoy some raw skating by civilian Nyle Lovett. Thanks to the folks at Nature Hardware for helping this particular episode come together. In other news, we are busy working on some new video projects that will be released in early 2011, so check back in a few weeks for fresh footage of the blissful Broadcast brethren.

Cruising In Color

December 15, 2010

With due respect to Will Rogers, I never met a lasagna I didn’t like. — Garfield

Back in 1978, Jim Davis didn’t have the slightest hunch that someday his characters would adorn this limited edition cruiser deck by the Hundreds. Love it or hate, this thing pairs perfectly with a set of Messenger 56mm filmer wheels. Speaking of Useless Wooden Toys, want to watch it in its entirety?

Shiloh Greathouse Homework

December 14, 2010

In the mid 90’s, the ménage à trois of World Industries, Blind, and 101 released one of the most comprehensive street skating videos ever made. Can you name all of the skaters who appear in this flick? Shiloh Greathouse is one of those skaters that has made a permanent impact on street skating via his knack for combination tricks too fast for Hi-8 to keep up with. We suggest enjoying his section in Trilogy, and then immediately watch his part in Transworld’s First Love. You probably already saw his Memory Screened feature, right?
