Pretty Sweet: a (most) rad skateboarding video

Jack Douglas Reader Find

By Jack Douglas in Video on Thursday 22 August 2013

Girl and Chocolate skateboards put together what is now one of my favourite pieces of film. It’s called Pretty Sweet and it’s made so well that it will make even the most uncoordinated and lazy person want to pick up a board and start shredding. The way that it’s cut, the effects, the soundtrack, the […]

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Wednesday 15 May 2013

Kilian Martin totally killed it in this video directed by Brett Novak, and now he’s back with another Novak-directed short film of him skateboarding in slo mo through India. It’s sick and beautiful at the same time, especially when it’s so well-aided by the Other Lives tune ‘Take Us Alive’.

Mind boggling skateboarding video of Kilian Martin

George Hambov Reader Find

By George Hambov in Video on Wednesday 29 August 2012

I came across Kilian Martin’s skating prowess a couple of years ago and this video makes the mind boggle. Skateboarding in my youth and defining my own rules and tricks made me a visual artist today. Kilian’s riding is far better than most skater’s dry technical ability. Even within skating he is arguably creating his […]

Video of Ray Barbee skateboarding

Sam Crocket Reader Find

By Sam Crocket in Video on Tuesday 10 July 2012

This video makes me very happy. People talk a lot about how skating can be ‘art’ but too often it descends into competitive jock-like bravado. Ray Barbee has something else going on. His skating is creative and infectious. This video captures a lot of what makes skateboarding important to me.

Photos of skateboarding in New York in 1960

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Thursday 1 March 2012

Having spent five years living in New York, I can attest from first hand perspective that the city has a definite mysticism that just translates so well to film. These old school shots of kids cruising the streets on old school skateboards remind me of how little has actually changed in the city over the 53 years since the photos were taken by Bill Eppridge for LIFE magazine.

Incredible skateboarding video featuring Kilian Martin

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Tuesday 7 June 2011

In my teenage years, I used to get around the backstreets of Sydney on a trusty Ozi board. I recently toyed around with the idea of getting a deck these days to bypass, the bus. Having seen this miraculous footage of Kilian Martin ripping it up, I’ll take that idea and kick it to the […]

In Afghanistan, many girls are forbidden to ride a bike, so they ride skateboards instead

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Photography on Tuesday 21 April 2015

Back in 2007, Australian skateboarder Oliver Percovich started a revolution in Afghanistan. Roaming the streets with his skateboard, he immediately attracted the attention of children, most of whom spent their time begging on the streets.
