i want this– Stussy Cruiser

I want this Stussy Livin’ cruiser deck. I love the shape. It has lines that are reminiscent of boards that I skated in junior high. Not to mention it is made by a brand that was hot in the same era. I like long boards to have some versatility, like the kick nose + tail on this thing. It’s something that you can bomb hills with, as well as throw the occasional shuvit.


Another artsy skate vid

I have some friends that used to skate for 5boro. They seem like a decent outfit. Here is their Fall ’11 clip. I think that the monochromatic edit is a nice touch. See how many of your favorite NYC spots you can identify–


What the world looks like through the eyes of a skateboard

My homey Josh Maready shared this video on FB today. I couldn’t help but pass it along. Last time we hung out together, he was telling me about this idea that he had to put a camera on his skateboard and go skating. I thought it sounded like an awesome idea, and also wondered how the camera would hold up (and apparently it didn’t). But Josh was able to put together some pretty remarkable footage anyway. He is a fantastic skateboarder. It is almost as fun to watch from the underside of his board, as it is to watch from the third person perspective. Anyway, check it out.
