Do you have $99,000 lying around? Want to own a skatepark [a lil’ over an hour from the city]? Peekskill’s 2nd Nature park is for sale. No cybermonday promo code for that though ;)
The promo for the upcoming Late Nite Stars full-length video went live last week. (Yes, a Trung sighting is included.)
Shari White made a new 11-minute edit called “Gleek / Blueberries,” featuring a solid chunk of Dustin Henry footage + appearances from Una, Breana, Nelly, Stafhon, Shealy, Chandler Burton and a mini curtains section from Evan Wasser.

Skateboarder magazine ended in late 2013, but according to its longtime editor, anxiety about the magazine’s viability was present a decade prior. “Even in the early Skateboarder days — the mid-2000s — there were signs that magazines could be in trouble in the coming years. You had to switch gears and do everything you could to keep it going,” says Jaime Owens, who, following Skateboarder’s demise, became editor of Transworld Skateboarding. Transworld, of course, which published continuously from 1983 through 2019, now lives on as a web-only operation, due to its mix of 1.6 million Instagram followers and 400,000 YouTube subscribers.

Was almost about to lose out on the “one of these a month” goal we try to pull off every year (to no avail), but here’s the March edition just in the nick of time. Three for three, baby!
The latest moodboard comes from videographer, Mess Skate Mag editor, and obviously incredible skateboarder herself, Shari White.

In our second and final installment of videos released in conjunction with Mess‘ first issue, we have a part from cover star, Una Farrar. “Goodnews” was largely filmed on a trip to Australia, edited by Una, and named in tribute to her hometown skateshop in Victoria, British Columbia. It is also her first full part since the release of Shari’s Credits video back in 2020.
You can catch copies of Mess for free at many skateshops throughout the U.S. Follow them on IG via @messskatemag. Have a good weekend ❤️
Intro & Interview by José Vadi
Photography by Norma Ibarra
Photographer Norma Ibarra left her hometown of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico in 2009 and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia — a few blocks away from Antisocial Skateshop in 2015. She started skating and became obsessed. Norma transferred her lifelong photography passion into contributions to the burgeoning The Skate Witches collective-turned-zine and volunteering for nonprofits like Skate Like a Girl. Self-funded skate trips turned into official invites from brands to document the worldwide sessions. Few have captured so many unique skate scenes around the world in so little time as Norma, who has a keen eye for showcasing skateboarding as a conversation with the cities and communities that house every trick.
Norma’s energy and passion for her work was palpable during our recent phone call, where we talked about photographer etiquette, hoarding clothes, and why growing your own food can help your skating.
