There are few guys out there who have more control over a skateboard than Ronnie Creager. He'll flip in/flip out, jump down huge gaps, dance on ledges, manual forever, you name it... he's got it. And you know what, he's had it for 20+ years!!!
HOLY SHIT!!! A MARK APPLEYARD FULL STREEET PART!!! PREMIERING ON THE BERRICS ON JUNE 15TH!!! (YES, ALL CAPS AND EXCLAMATION MARKS MEAN I'M YELLING BECAUSE THIS IS AWESOME!!!)
The last few weeks have been challenging for WATCH THIS because I haven't had much time to WATCH THEM. The offices at the Berrics have been on hold for over 6 weeks due to a permit problem with the crooks we call the city of LA, so we've been working out of some temporary lofts about a half a mile away that I also happen to live in. Yeah, that's my life right now. It's been pretty good thus far until the landlord emailed me saying he's upping the rent on the lofts by 40%. It's his way of legally forcing us out because I'm guessing, by the way they look at us, that they can't bare to have black people coming in and out of their precious loft complex. Yes, the Berrics is an equal opportunity employer. We have black people, white people, spanish people, vietnamese people and a Korean. We probably got some other types in here too so I'm sorry if I left them out. Anyhow, I'm the last one to call racism out on anything or anyone because I just feel that in this day and age in Los Angeles that it doesn't really exist anymore. I think I'm wrong. Why am I telling you this? Because it's taken up a lot of my time trying to figure out where we are going to move to while the offices at the actual Berrics get finished. There's about a 6 week gap between now and then and I haven't been able to watch any of the links you all have sent me, until last night. There were too many, so some are going up today and some next week and some the following week. Keep them coming, and I promise you that if your'e Black, Brown, Puerto Rican, Haitian, Brazilian, Mexican, Chinese or Eskimo I won't ever raise the rent on you by 40% or give you cold stares in the parking lot or tell you to stop talking so loud on your cell phone or leave nasty notes about your parking under your windshield wiper. I promise you. Now click in to see what we got this week for WATCH THIS! - sb
Corey Duffel was the first guy in our town and age group that got sponsored out of our crew. It was rad to see someone get hooked up and really inspire us we could take it farther. I was lucky enough to always film Corey. How often does someone get to travel around the world with a childhood friend and work on a full-length part with him doing what you love? Here's some clips of Corey that were seen in the Foundation video and his Transworld part. - Chris Ray
Skate Socks is every skateshop in every city around the world. It's the all silly questions we asked or wanted to ask but were too embarrassed. It's that thing you overheard and always told yourself you'd remember it forever. In this episode, the topic at hand is... babysitting.
DAMN VIDEO TRAILER #2
Another Damn Video trailer... and we mean that in the best kind of way. Thanks Blind Skateboards.
