Markovich in motion

There was puke by the dumpster at my apartment this morning and now I get to see Kris Markovich puke in this clip from Hurly. Then I get to go home early. Today is a pretty good day. There are more clips on Unfortunantly it won't let US residents subscribe to the video podcast. found on TackyWorld

Euro goodness

Eric Antoine is a sick photographer covers European skating for various magazines and for his website SkateboardEurope. There is a new article there covering an etnies Armadillo tour.

Street Riot Teaser

Street Riot out of Canada has a teaser for their upcoming video. It looks like it will be a good one.

Reason To Believe Review

I like this video. I like it a lot. With people like Jamie Thomas and Ben Gilley in the video you would expect the unknown guys to be over shadowed but I think they steal the show. James Hardy starts it off with a really impressive part. Justin Holmes got put in the hospital filming for this video, enough said. Peter Karvonen does one of the best drop-ins I’ve ever seen with a surprise ending. The friends section has plenty of heavy hitting up and comers like Sean Malto and Justin Brock. Melcher ends it with some really impressive and creative skating. Pat Rakestraw is so sick, I can’t wait to see what he has in the new Black Label video. Jamie Thomas is probably saving his best stuff for the fallen video but still comes through with a full part that is nothing to scoff at. Ben Gilley has a real pro part which likely would have been in the Black label video had he not been canned. There is a slam section at the end then the credits. Get it from Faith Skate Supply or bug your local shop to get it from Black Box.

If you would like your product reviewed on Mostly Skateboarding let me know...

The Skate Press

The Skate Press looks interesting. I wonder if I could get an invite. If I had more time i might be able to get a decent portfolio together... Found on

Leftover seagulls...

The Platinum Seagulls video, Weekend Warriors, is gonna be sick if this footy didn't make the cut.

Cliche Demo Days

Cliche went to Russia to do a demo and premiere Hello Jojo. This is what you might have seen if you went there.

Cole on a Roll

Chris Cole makes it all look so easy. Check out his SOTY video and see what I mean. You've probably already seen a lot of this footy in the new Zero Video but there are some new tricks and new angles. Warning: TonyHawk commercial in the beginning.

New Toy for Christmas

The Toy Machine website recently got a redesign and has what looks to be daily updates with team photos. There is also a nice section of Ed Templeton's art. Thanks for the tip Eddie.

More sites than Spots

I live in Norfolk Virginia in an area knows as Hampton Roads. There are 7 cities in this area and very few spots. I find it amazing the number of skate websites coming out of this area. if you look at the footage you can see that most people head to Richmond or NC to actually skate. I wonder why no one goes to DC anymore...
