It’s nice to see Levi Brown pickin up where Nate Jones left off, these cats got style for days.
With a line up consisting of Mike Carroll, Rick Howard, Mark Gonzales, Guy Mariano, Brian Anderson, Sean Malto, Max Schaaf, Lucas Puig, Andrew Brophy, Tyler Bledsoe and Nick Jensen, this video is sure to be nothing short of amazing.
I really wish Bootleg Skateboards would have lasted longer so we could have seen more Baker Bootleg videos. The Baker Bootleg and Baker2g videos remind me of how raw skateboard is and why we do it, no need for fancy intros or even legit filming, these videos were just about hanging with the homies and having a good time. Check out Andrew’s part and see him killing it before he became The Boss.
Check out the new Powell FUN! video and comment on your favorite part.
Are these guys for real?
Check out this extended version of Paul’s Nike SB commercial.
If anyone watched the Maloof Money Cup footage on NBC over the weekend, then you probably caught this Nike SB commercial featuring Active Pro Paul Rodriguez. Also featured in the commercial are cameo appearances by Active Am Theotis Beasley, long time Active friend Lance Mountain and of course the iconic Ice Cube. Los Angeles stand up!!!
The Nike SB Debacle video is now online for your viewing pleasure, you can watch or download it here. The entire video is in HD and the Nike SB am squad brought the heat with some next level skating. Peep it and comment on who’s part was best.
It’s been a few months now since I first heard the whispers of a Sean Sheffey comeback, and still can’t believe them to be true. Could this really be? Is skateboarding ready for another round of Sheffey? I certainly hope so.
So I just finished watching the new Paul Rodriguez Proof DVD and have to say it’s an amazing DVD that’s well worth watching. I’m really liking this new format of am videos and homie videos that are starting to pop up. It’s a breath of fresh air to see great parts from guys who you aren’t that familiar with, and these guys brought the heat with some bangin parts. I was really impressed with Nate Principato, Stevie Perez, Keelan Dadd and Josh Grossguth. Then there was the return of Sam Baptista which I was super stoked on and parts from some familiar names such as Chaz Ortiz, Darrell Stanton and Terell Robinson. But for me the highlights came in the form of P-Rod’s opening montage and the closing part which was shared by Carlos Zarazua, Justin Schulte & Torey Pudwill. The video has a ton of technical skating and is a must watch for any street skater. To purchase a copy click here, or check out our Proof premiere schedule.
So I finally got around to watching Mind Field over the weekend(I know, I lagged!), and have to say that I was pretty bummed on Jason Dill’s part. I know that seems insane, but after his parts in Trilogy, Photosynthesis & Feedback, I’ve come to expect a lot from a Jason Dill video part. To me, his part in Mind Field felt rushed, had way too many feeble grinds and didn’t hold up to his previous Workshop(Photosynthesis) video part(seen here). Get your head straight Dill, don’t let me down again.
If you grew up watching ‘Underachievers: Eastern Exposure Three’, then you understand the impact that this video had on the skate world back in 1996, especially on the east coast. Guys like Donny Barley, Tim O’Connor, Reese Forbes and Ricky Oyola made you wanna skate the rawest spot you could find with as much speed as humanly possible. This was probably Ricky Oyola’s best video part to date and ‘Underachievers: Eastern Exposure Three’ is arguably one of the best skate videos of all time.
Justin Figueroa has been an Active am for a while now and we have a ton of love for him, but somehow we missed that yesterday was his 19th birthday. Sorry about that Figgy. Leave a comment below to wish Figgy a happy belated birthday.
There was a movie in the 80’s called D.A.R.Y.L. which was about a child with “special abilities” who we later find out is a robot. It turned out that D.A.R.Y.L. was an acronym for Data Analyzing Robot Youth Lifeform… duh. Well, today is the birthday of a very different Daryl, and this one is not a robot but rather an average kid with “special abilities” on a skateboard. So this playlist is in honor of Daryl Angel, have a happy birthday man.
