Rad Skateboarder // Jonathan Pierce

leave a comment »

Holy cowboys and Indians! This part is ridiculously good! I don’t know who Jonathan Pierce is, where he’s from or if he’s sponsored by any companies, but by the looks of it, it certainly seems like he should be.

Watch this rad skate part for sure.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Kilian Martin // the new face of freestyle skateboarding

leave a comment »

Kilian Martin has been making some serious waves with his retro style – freestyle to be exact – of skateboarding. He blew the minds of many with two parts last year, A Skate Escalation and A Skate Regeneration, and it doesn’t look like he’ll be slowing down in 2011 either.

For Man About Town, enjoy the freestyle blessings of Kilian. What I like most about this video is his clothes – I mean this is for a men’s fashion magazine. And how about the finger-tape!? What a gangsta…

Thursday Theatricals 4 // “In Public” by Ryan Kohler

with 5 comments

In Public is a skate video starring a plethora of skateboarders from East County, San Diego.

It was produced and edited by Ryan Kohler, with the financial support of Hanger 94. I was lucky enough to befriend Ryan while simultaneously being sponsored by Hanger 94 and I am ever-so thankful that I was presented with the opportunity to be a part of this video. While I only contributed a few tricks, the video as a whole perfectly exemplifies what it was like growing up as a skateboarder in the late 90s and early 2000’s.

I think Ryan said it best, “skateboarding, friends, and a bunch of other funny stuff.

In Public will forever live on in the hearts of East County skateboarders. The physical DVD is out there and it is a treasure I will always cherish.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Thrashin’ Thursday, wait what day is it?

You need to watch this video for two reasons.

For one, there is Brad Staba footage. Granted it is only two tricks, it’s enough to get me excited. I don’t remember the last time I saw new footage of Staba skating. The dude has style. I know I’m not the only one who wants to see a part from him.

Secondly, Sam Smyth got some tricks too. Famed for his uncanny abilities as talent manager for Girl Skateboards, his footage is usually limited to a bite or two. Not here. With no food in sight, Sam actually pulls some tricks. Hella rad.

There’s more in this video that is worthwhile, but in all honesty, the persons mentioned above really made this video all that much better.

Be Rad. Enjoy.
