Illegal Civ videos often have some of the best soundtracks! Many tracks have made it into our personal playlists. For Godspeed Davonte Jolly edited Ishod Wair’s footage to “CHAMP IS HERE”. A move so obvious that you start to wonder why nobody thought of it before.
Also, is the whole concept behind HARDIES, just to make us miss the golden era of NY hip hop? MA$E, DMX, JADA man that shit makes you want to wear some baggie pants and some Timbs.
Are stars made or are they born, is talent embedded or developed? Is everything a skateboarder does part of skateboarding?
Fucking Awesome certainly seems to think so and whether or not Na-Kel Smith and Tyshawn jones are indeed rap stars is up to the public. Enjoy!
Finally, something we have been waiting on for a long time: the first full-length video presentation from Alex Olson’s Call Me 917. Now we are not going to give you a full video description but we will give you at least a few of our highlights.
First off, Alex Olson skates to a Rap Song by Nakel Smith, Secondly, the video consists of the team and their friends and last but not least, the soundtrack feels like a cross between an Anti-Hero video and Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2’s score.
Honestly, go watch the video. It is not what we expected, it is better:
Every year Thrasher traditionally send their current SOTY on a trip. Thus, this time Kyle Walker is the one to whom the honor is due, and so together with his not less well-known friends he traveled to always sunny Australia. You may expect high-class skateboarding.
Featuring Kyle Walker, Ishod Wair, Daan van der Linden, Zion Wright, Nakel Smith, Chima Ferguson, Louie Lopez, Jake Donnelly, Reese Salken, Peter Ramondetta, Matt Bennett and more.
We have been waiting! Not for the Hardies promo but for somebody to use that Jay Z song and to be honest, it couldn’t be used in a better context. Besides that, legendary DJ Troi “Star” Torain once said that hip hop is “A business where extremely confident black men are able to flourish and prosper.” and for us that is what Hardies brings to the table with the like of Tyshawn Jones, Nakel Smith, Kevin Bradley, Sage Elsesser and many more. Enjoy!
The time has come! Today Adidas Skateboarding’s biggest project Away Days has its online premiere and is available for the next 24 hours before you can buy it on itunes tomorrow. No more words needed. Enjoy!
While currently the premiers of Away Days are taken place all over the world the Far & Away episodes further on provide us with interesting insights. This time we can see how Dennis destroys his own backyard, Donnelly shows tremendous pop, and Nak runs the dice game.
The fourth behind the scenes episode is about the mental and physical struggles the Adidas team riders had to face while filming a full part but it also shows some very nice appetizers for the Away Days video, as well.
The third installment leading up to the release of the new Adidas tomorrow in LA. This one is mostly about the international vibe of the team but since we already spoke on that lets just say that it is about Chewy Cannon. Chewy is one of the best! Why? Because he can do an ollie on flat ground in a line and still have it look better than your nollie tre flip, in addition to that he skates fast and on the nicest terrain. So yeah Chewy’s part is probably going to be one of the best in the video.
The second installment of the Far and Away series is here and it features one of life’s most important lessons, share your wealth and share your opportunities with other people so you can grow together.
If you by any chance missed the first episode click here to see it.
Adidas presents us with episode 1 of the Far & Away series. This series provides us with some small previews of what we can expect from the video, at the same time we still don’t fully know what to expect from the Adidas crew. All in all this episode is a good little teaser to get you excited to see the video.
Once again somebody took the time to create a little Supreme style compilation clips. There is something to it though scrolling through Strobeck’s feed and collection little snippets here and there. You get Fat Bill’s style of filming with the music style of the creator (or not), but in the end something new is created. Remixing or collaging is, was and will remain one of todays most important movements in and out of skateboarding.
Adidas has joined the rubber toe cap bandwagon but somehow they managed to do it in their own inimitable way. The team is skating the shoe a lot, Puig’s insta feed has been full of clips of him skating this shoe and it is our opinion that if the team is skating a shoe it means that the shoe is good.
