Looking for you babe, searching for you babe

Knew this would happen one day (everyone assumed Westgate would do it), but that doesn’t make it any less insane… Some Colombian on Natural Koncept ollied off the four stair and onto the manual pad at the Family Court building.

Transworld posted the extended transcript of their interview with Peter Sidlauskas from the July issue online. Also, someone with a lot of free time successfully completed Bronze’s “It’s the Zoo York” ten-hour challenge.

Also, shocked to learn that Peter (or “Fuck Jerry”) wasn’t the one who designed the purple and turquoise Solo Jazz cup.

We now know how 2 Bros. Pizza can afford to feed the entire unemployed New York skateboarder population for $1 a slice: workers are suing the company for millions in unpaid wages.

Live has the online premiere of Cimke, the new one from the Rios crew.

The shady homie Jack Greer made a bro cam edit of his time spent living in Paris, which features Kevin Rodrigues, Olson, the Palace bros and some other bros.

Bobshirt’s new interview with Puleo is great. First one in a long time that doesn’t make him sound like some crazy backwoods-dwelling cellar-door seeker.

Skateboard Story is a new website by our friend Ben. The site focuses on the people with behind-the-scenes (i.e. not pros) jobs in the skateboard industry. The first installment is with Huf staff photographer, Brian Kelley.

“I’m Tony Hawk and two of my favorite movies are The Naked Gun and The Spy Who Loved Me.” Also on the subject of movies and Tony Hawk, he responded to allegations made in All This Mayhem about the great 900 conspiracy. Doesn’t make the “Fuck off Hawk, you can’t even flip your board you old prick”-line any less classic though ;)

Some Olson and Reider throwaways from “cherry”.

Black Dave interviewed Eric Koston.

Free Skate Mag tells the story of Helas.

Pro skaters dads with advice on how to be a good dad.

Deck Aid / Bobshirt is having a show in Brooklyn on Saturday, with all proceeds going to Skateistan. They’ll be selling limited edition silkscreened prints of Keenan’s first graphic, signed by Sean Cliver :) Flyer here.

Video Review: Natural Koncept – Creepin’ For Life

April 18th, 2012 | 11:01 am | Features & Interviews | 8 Comments

We could have reviewed the new Transworld video. We decided to review the new Natural Koncept video instead.

By Galen DeKemper

Creepin’ for Life will make you forget you own other videos. Along with graffiti, Club Feria and urine consumption, Creepin’ for Life features the skate obstacles that try men’s souls. For a trick that allows Josh Zickert to have women call him “JZ Radical,” he goes above and beyond any call of duty save his own to master a vast intimidating sculpture in the heart of a landscape automobiles had previously owned. The rest of the video is similarly raw. Each rider’s part includes a heavy nod to his home turf mixed with the touring footage that ensues when this eleven man squad travels by van feeding off each other. Observe landmark skating on landmarks, monumental tricks on monuments and some wavy banks that you’d like to skate in the course of this 50-minute production that includes Sean Payne and thanks Paul Sevigny.
