New Mash Trailer and Site

I kind of feel like a poser when I link to Mash, since I ride a geared bike, but this shit still gets me stoked to ride. The new trailer is kind of a re-cut of the old trailer with some new footage. Music by The Mall.

Must Be Nice

A nice long teaser for Shred Love's video entitled Must Be Nice. Available NOW for only $7. It's kind of sick to see some up and comers skating vert too.

Manufactured Landscapes

Tonight at the Naro Cinema, Manufactured Landscapes is playing at 7:15. This will be your only opportunity to see this film on the big screen in this area. I highly recommend everyone checks it out at the Naro, on video, or in your area. The documentary is about photographer Edward Burtynsky and his projects to document how man kind has effected our landscape. Check the trailer, plus there are plenty of other goodies on his website.

Girl Talk Trailer

Jungle Junkies Are Back

I had written them off as dead, but the Jungle Junkies are back with montage 3. From the looks of it they have been holding on to this footage for a while. The next mostly montage will have footage from over a year ago, so I'm not hating.

Montage from Washington DC

Adam Turrisi's video entry to the Pit Crew Film Fest looks pretty good. It seems like everyone is getting gnarly on the gold rail these days. Adam's blog has all the info on who is in the montage.

This montage from Chronicles of Hern has a lot of good Barcelona footage.

Frenchman Joseph Biais comes through with a solid video part and a bunch of spots I've never seen before.

Free Mini Ramp in Norfolk

Somebody in Norfolk should take this 3' Mini Ramp offered up on Craigslist. I just stumbled upon this so I can't vouch for the awesomeness of this ramp, but it's worth a look. Whoever gets it better invite me over for a session.

Frisco Bitch

A Boondoggle filming mission took the Cherry on a Spoon guys to San Francisco. Here is a montage of what went down with even better stuff withheld for the video I'm sure.

Brother Reade Kills It

Last night's Brother Reade show was off the hook. For all those who missed it go buy their album and use one of the songs in your next video part. Thanks to everyone who came out to The Boot and big thanks to Brother Reade for coming all the way out to Norfolk to play one of the best shows I've seen in a long time to a small crowd of well informed people.

Brother Reade TONIGHT

Locals need to come out to see Brother Reade tonight at The Boot.

Best of 4 Duos

Texas's best website, 4 Duos, put out monthly montages that are well above the average scene montage. The past two months there has been not 4 Duos montage so Rob G Film made a best of montage that will have you looking for a new home in Texas. Sick music too.

Thanks Camera 3

If the trailer is any indication, Thanks Camera 3 is taking local videos to a new level.

Brother Reade at The Boot

Locals would be wise to attend the Brother Reade show at The Boot on Sept 12th. Others in cities on the tour should also try to go out and see these guys. Click on the image to read the dates and locations.

303 September Montage

This montage from 303 kind of starts out slow, but towards the end are some tricks most pros would save for their video parts.

VA Fleezers Montage 11

We pioneered a lot of spots in Viewpoint, and VA Fleezers keeps them alive in Montage 11.

David Stoessel

Filmer David Stoessel has a Spotlight at Kinesis Films along with a montage of his filming. It starts off kind of slow with some voice over but the second half is all good skating.

Viewpoint Credits

video
It's been fun putting these old videos online. I have a lot more that I guess I'll post up periodically. The credits are full of good memories. Those where probably my favorite days of skating. Even better than the days of being a filmer in CA and working on all the big time videos. Thanks to all the guys form the video and thanks to everyone for watching and commenting.

Sac le Blue Bonus

Canadian shop, Blue Tile Lounge, have put a bonus montage up from their recent video Sac Le Blue.

Viewpoint Tyler Tufty

video
It's no surprise that Tyler got the curtains in this video. The guy has been constantly shredding since before a lot of you where even born. Tyler's professor form the intro apologized to me later when the cops where talking to me, Tyler to away and no one got in real trouble. To this day Tyler is still one of my favorite people to film with.

A Happy Medium

I think this is the previously un-named AZ video. It will be called A Happy Medium and from the looks of this promo, it should be a banger.

Viewpoint Brendan Ash

video
Brendan and I lived together for most of the time we where filming this video. Watching it again, I think I should have emphasized that ollie over the bank at Juvenile Hall in downtown Norfolk. I don't think many people could do that today. The kickflip 5-0 line is probably the best line in the whole video. He was trying to do it with a kickflip 50-50 and I kind of gave him a hard time about the 50-50 so he stepped it up to the 5-0 and banged it out pretty quick.

Double Guns 2

Absolute Skateshop's Double Guns 2 is out now and the promo looks sick. I dig the video player they have.

Out Of The Box


I just wanted to remind everyone that they should go out and pick up a copy of Out Of The Box. You can get it at The Forgotten City's web store for only $15. If you eed convincing, watch promo one and two.

Viewpoint Friends

video
Friends sections are always fun. This one starts off with Joe Fernandez, then John Waterfield with the crook on that rail. Next, Gordon Eckler came down for a few days and got a few tricks. Julian Ethridge has always been good and his tricks here are no exception. Art Lisi busted out the BS Flip at White six pretty easily, I wish I had gotten more of the 29 guys on film. Kevin Booker was talking shit about how great his studded Hurley belt was back then, now he brags about his $200 sweatshirts. I think that was Bob Reynolds doing that 5-0 at Rampage Skatepark, but I'm not sure. Graham Bickerstaff showed Tyler and I around in Atlanta and got a few clips for the video too. Kevin Manning was always at the session, so I had to throw that pop-shuvit in there. I never skated with Sketch much, but whenever I did he busted out. I think all of Ty Rohde's footage was from one day in Winston-Salem when Tyler where on our way back from Spring Break in Atlanta. I tagged along on various missions to get those few Kyle Berard clips. Mike Beiter did that BSTS on a broken board on one of the first days I ever skated with him. Neal Wood was just 15 years old when we got this footage. He was so stoked to film with someone with a good camera, he always got gnarly. Switch FS Noseslide on MGB is still sick. I'm still pretty stoked on my footage from Viewpoint. I think the BS Smith at Welfare is the best trick I have ever done. John Chaplain should have had a full part but he was always bugging me for sponsor-me tapes so I figured everyone had already seen his footage. He ended the Friends section nicely though. Sorry fro all the rambling, but there are a lot of memories in this section.

Old 303 Footy

Old footy is still good footy when it comes from 303 Boards.
