Asg - Species American Lyrics

Bright lights take the place of the sun.
Dark skies mean its time to have fun.
Dead Dogs on the side of the roads (species american)
Stand up lory lock and reload (species american)

Double Down road gypsies inch further (species american)
Tired bones lyin next to each other (species american)

Tattoo Age Series on Vice TV - Troy Denning - Teaser

Troy Denning is a tattoo artist who is not afraid to speak his mind. Luckily for us, what he has to say is either hilarious or insightful. Episodes begin Wed. September 7.

Obey - The Rise

Shepard talks about the influence graffiti, skateboarding and punk rock had on his life and the ways it shaped his art career. Key moments such as a school trip to NY and the melding of styles by brands such as Shut Skateboards allowed him to develop his techniques. Look out for some classic 90's skate footage as well.


Time and Space - Neckface part 4

The family that makes haunted houses together stays a freaky art flashback.

ASG - Low End Insight

Asg - Low End Insight Lyrics

Tin soldiers could start the war
scrap medals for sale
buy twilight of misery
death metal prevails
polish my eye
to the polished stone
the alloy is weakening by the hammer thrown

some say that heaven's a home
others find comfort in fire down below
we got friends on both sides
some are still living and others have died

blood of my eye, love blinded and violent
blood of my eye, love blinded and violent

if the bright lights you swim between
should flicker and fail
shock currents will set you free
black winds fill your sails
polish my eye, to the polished stone
the alloy is weakening by the hammer thrown

hold fast, stand firm, breathe

Nike Vapen Sessions Trailer

Every snowboarder dreams about the perfect season ender. In late spring 2011 the Nike snowboard team gathered in beautiful Strandafjellet in Norway for their annual team shoot. Traveling with boats through Viking country Halldor and the full crew where joined by legends like Nicolas Muller and Gigi Ruf for a week of snowboarding in a fun and relaxing way.

The land of the Vikings was also the perfect place to test the new Nike Vapen snowboard boot.

See how this came along in the Nike "Vapen" sessions, a series of videos based on fun, camaraderie and insane snowboarding.

Cash For Tricks 2011 Grande Finale // Anglet, France

The 2011 Nike 6.0 Cash For Tricks series culminated in shoulder-high surf under sunny skies with Jack Freestone trumping a red-hot field from across the world in the International final at Plage de la Madrague, Anglet. The top earner for progressive moves throughout the day, reigning ASP World Junior Champ Freestone was understandably stoked with the victory. “So happy to be here in France and to win this event, big thanks to Nike for putting on this contest, I’m really stoked.” Showcasing the repertoire that saw him as one of the pre-event favorites, the Australian finished ahead of fellow finalists Felix Messias (Bra), Thiago Camarao (Bra), Wiggolly Dantas (Bra), Beyrick de Vries (Zaf) and Reubyn Ash (UK) with a confident display of cutting edge surfing. Arguably the most in-form and radical surfer through the rounds, Gabriel Medina (Bra) just missed out on the final after entertaining the crowd with a dazzling display of tricks over the two days. “I was disappointed not to make the final but still really happy to have been invited to this contest, and I love this format,” reckoned the young Brazilian.

The 2011 Nike 6.0 Cash For tricks series took place in Sopelana, Spain, Praia Grande, Portugal, Newquay, UK and Seignosse, France, awarding wildcards to the best two surfers from each event to compete in the finals. With a fresh, innovative format that simply encouraged surfer to go big to earn prize money, the Cash For Tricks series treated beach crowds and media to the kind of radical surfing not always seen in traditional competition.

Nike 6.0 Cash For Tricks is dedicated in loving memory to Bruno Débauché.

So turn off the video sound...put some old Motorhead track on your playlist, sit back and relax.

Billabong Pro Tahiti 2011 - Code Red Tow Session Highlights

TEAHUPO'O, Taiarapu/French Polynesia (Saturday, August 27, 2011) -- The surf world has been waiting and now the wait is over; some of the biggest, scariest waves seen at Tahiti's infamous Teahupo'o have been tackled today by an elite crew of tow-surf specialists.

Teahupo'o is the primary site of Event 5 on the 2011 ASP Men's World Tour, the Billabong Pro presented by Air Tahiti Nui, which is midway through its 12 day waiting period, yet the world's top rated surfers were denied the opportunity to compete in historic conditions after the French Government last night issued a 24 hour "Code Red" advisory warning that prevents water craft from legal operation.

But with the 'swell of the decade' hitting the dangerous Teahupo'o reef, nothing was going to stop the tow-in aficionados who tracked the swell and flew in from all corners of the globe to ride it. With four-to-five metre waves slamming onto Teahupo'o's dangerously shallow reef, surfing's elite put their lives on the line as they chased the ultimate thrill.

Among those in the line-up were fearless Australian chargers Dylan Longbottom (Forrester's, NSW), Laurie Towner (Yamba, NSW), Dean Bowen (Gerroa, NSW), Koby Abberton (Maroubra, NSW) and Dean Morrison (Gold Coast, Qld).

Visiting Hawaiian surfers included Bruce Irons (Kauai), Kamelai Alexander (Kauai) and Kalanai Chapman (Oahu).

While Frenchman Ben Sanchis (FRA) and Californian Nathan Fletcher (USA) also made the last minute trip to the South Pacific.

Injuries were inevitable. Local legend Raimana Van Bastolaer (PYF) was among the first to get hurt, he was slammed and dragged onto the reef, cutting his back despite wearing a wetsuit vest and life jacket.

Former world tour surfer Dean Morrison was forced to shore and received medical attention for an ankle injury.

Assuming the French Government lifts the "Code Red" ban, organisers of the Billabong Pro hope to resume competition with Round 3 heats tomorrow, Sunday August 28th.

Banksy - The Antics Roadshow 2011(full documentary)

Documentary starting at 0:55 ...

An hour-long special made by Banksy charting the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics.

Contributors include Michael Fagan talking about breaking into the Queen's bedroom: 'I looked into her eyes, they were dark'; and Noel Godin, who pioneered attacking celebrities with custard pies: 'Instead of a bullet I give them a cake'.

Explaining his reasoning behind the show, Banksy said: 'Basically I just thought it was a good name for a TV programme and I've been working back from there'.

Narrated by Kathy Burke and produced by Jamie D'cruz, The Antics Roadshow examines the stories behind some of the most audacious stunts of recent times and what motivates the perpetrators, from mindless boredom to heartfelt political beliefs.

It includes a world exclusive first interview with the man responsible for putting the turf Mohican on Winston Churchill's head.

Slam Demons by Thrasher Mag

Words by Adam Creagan | Illustrations by James Callahan
A rather grim reggae lyric once proclaimed: “There’s six million ways to die—choose one.” Well, there’s even more ways than that in which you can annihilate yourself on a skateboard. In fact, you don’t have to choose. The trauma lottery never sleeps, and it’s waiting for you the moment you step on the grip. From curbs to waist-high rails, or from flatground to hill bombs, each slam is unique and it’s only a matter of time until this blood debt needs to be reckoned. And whether you’re supernaturally talented or staring down your first drop-in: Everyone pays. The skate/slam covenant is so assured it makes you wonder if there’s dark forces at work, beyond the naked eye, maintaining the sacred oath. Perhaps these invisible entities, Slam Demons if you will, operate something like this...

It’s usually skaters’ arms and legs that get decimated daily. So, when a full-on chest blitz goes down, the first reaction is surprise. Then, the inability to breathe oxygen and sustain life (namely, your own) becomes an urgent concern. Meanwhile, your friends already posted the footage online and it's a hit on Facebark. The clip went viral and so will your staph infection.

What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? You can ponder this paradox as you scrape both your palms off the ground, but basically it's "Murder, She Wrote." Wheelbite can be caused by loose trucks, a rock, or a crack. But sometimes it’s the fangs of a spiteful beast who just wanted to see you take a dive, dude.

Forget high interest rates, this slam has the most cruel payment plan of all. An out-of-control board, by way of rocket flip or some other mishap, can quickly become a vertical junk-crusher. For our friends 5’ 6” and under, this one can be pure testicular brutality.

Good griptape you don’t even think about. It keeps you on board when the going gets rough, and when you need to eject, she’ll let you go. Yet, that which giveth can taketh away, and a one-foot-on/one-foot-off slam you won’t soon forget. Rarely seen outside of gymnastics or the dancefloor, the splits will end any session. You can also call it the James Brown or the Van Damme.

Tendons and ligaments don’t ask for much. They just request that you stay within a normal range of motion. When a demonic steamroller parks on top of your foot at an unnatural angle, it’s a deal breaker. You and your ankle will not be on speaking (or walking) terms for several weeks.

Transitions are a blast. Experiencing them on your face? Not so much. When your board gets hi-jacked by the coping, just remember the Transition Gods require a human sacrifice. It's nothing personal. And don’t worry, you won’t feel a thing...until you hit the flatbottom. Hey, it’s why the trick is called a disaster.

Dennis the Menace was the comic-strip character whose ill-placed skateboard would often send his neighbor, Mr. Wilson, spilling onto the ground, ass-first. Don’t get it twisted, though. This charming heels-over-head comic scenario never included the snapped tailbone and severe thigh hemorrhage that an actual slam-dance can serve up.

Yoga is supposed to be tranquil and meditative, but this monster mash distributes your weight to where you can least support it: Your goddamn neck. This can be the jolt-of-a-lifetime and you’re lucky if you live to tell. When it comes to Slam Demons, there’s no escape. So as you await their arrival, do a rolling tumble when you can, get those arms out if you can’t, and happy skating...

'Hanging with Helder' - the Emerica Europe team in Portugal

The tour came in a reluctant spring that followed yet another long hard European winter. Scrabbling after clear skies for 4 months can take it out of you and we wanted to start the year together. The elusive ideal that you all meet up and charge around foreign cities and far flung places has become harder and harder to attain. Weather, schedules, injuries all plot against the gregarious team. We waited with our eyes all on the prize, we saw an opening and we took it, on the other side was Lisbon, Portugal.

Skate World - Contest Carnage - 4 Parts

VBS explores the changing face of skateboard terrains and contests.

This VBS and Converse special explores several different eras of skateboarding and the terrain that coincides with them. All of the eras come together at Converse's Coastal Carnage event drawing inspiration from the vert ramps of the 70's and 80's, and the DIY explosion of 90's and new millennium. There are a ton of amazing interviews from the likes of Tom Remillard, Lance Mountain, Raven Tershy, and Adam DIV.


By the late ‘80s, skateboarding had been reduced to a handful of pros. The fanfare and excitement of ramp and bowl contests had faded. But as Lance Mountain tells us in this second episode of Contest Carnage, skateboarding was still about pushing your limits and getting scared. It was an emotional feeling, energized by a few concrete parks and the contests they hosted. And that feeling was very much still alive.


The late 80s saw skate videos transform the industry, exploding from the transition-driven success of Powell Peralta’s pioneering The Bones Brigade Video Show in 1984 and Future Primitive in 1985. At the same time, the legendary contest series at Del Mar Skate Ranch and Upland Pipeline catapulted a new league of tranny contests to prominence. In this episode we get a primer on Del Mar from Dave and Grant at the Skateboard Mag backed by some amazing footage of Christian Hosoi and Tony Hawk from 1985 at Del Mar to set up Episode 4’s upcoming return to the Coastal Carnage bowl.


The US Open of Surfing is the largest gathering of “action sports” fans in the world; over half a million of them turn up to watch surfers, skaters, and BMXers ride at Huntington Beach, surrounded by more teen flesh and bad choices than you can shake a blank deck at. The mayhem is a fitting place for Coastal Carnage, the Converse-sponsored bowl jam that juxtaposes today’s hybrid rippers with the pros of legend in a chaotic competition format that brings to mind the 80s heyday of tranny contests.

Dinosaur Jr - Crumble Lyrics

I got nothing where I've been
will you bring me there again
no-one ever understands
you wont change to help them

I got lost inside a lie
with a smile you made it die
I'm not there and you know why
and I'll run to get some

more, more

can I be there all the time
can I stop to wonder why
will I crumble will I fly
and I gotta make it

will I be in time to see
will it run over me
can I fake out just to be
you know i cant take any

more, more

held the picture yesterday
held the picture of a moment
that I want
that I want
that I want

you had time me again
but you flatten' me instead
tried to heal the things you said
like I almost have it

but I don't have it at all
and I'm sweatin' trying to stall
till I think I heard a call
I bet your just laughing on

on, on, on

held the picture yesterday
held the picture of a moment
that I want
that I want
that I want

To the desperate scene at the throbbing ball
And you'll do it all, now you've become my geni-thrall

New York’s Urban Aloha by Thad Ziolkowski - The New York Times

WHEN the world’s best surfers come to Long Beach, N.Y., next month to compete for a record million-dollar purse in the Quiksilver Pro New York, a new event on professional surfing’s world tour, they might be forgiven for using Google Earth to locate the place. Compared with Australia and California and Hawaii, where Quiksilver established its pre-eminence as a beachwear company, New York barely registers on the surfing atlas.

There’s good reason for that: the waves are typically pretty meager here, the winters long and stoke-extinguishing. The competition is scheduled for the first two weeks of September, when the odds of hurricane swells are at their statistical best. Still, as locals will tell you, that’s quite a roll of the dice. If showcasing the underappreciated athleticism of surfing is the goal, why not hold the contest in, say, Fiji or Mexico, where the waves would be far more likely to prove worthy of the surfers?

Perhaps because Quiksilver is coming to town less for great surf than for greater market share.

In the past decade or so, surfing has undergone a worldwide boom in popularity, especially among women and urban professionals in their 20s and 30s. Tom Hanks surfs; Cameron Diaz, too. Surf schools and spa-like resorts, the fastest-growing segment of the surf economy, have sprung up, further altering the character of a sport that was once the realm of working- and middle-class adolescent males and young men whose initiations at local beaches were typically prolonged and humiliating.

Meanwhile, older surfers, who in previous generations would have put aside this childish thing, have kept on surfing or returned to it after a hiatus, in large part because of the renaissance of kinder, gentler designs like the longboard and stand-up paddleboard.

As if suddenly remembering that it’s a coastal city, New York has been swept up in the urban surf craze along with San Francisco and Los Angeles. And why not? New York may not have abundant, grade-A surf but ridable waves are as close as Far Rockaway, Queens, about an hour from Manhattan on the subway.

In New York City, slipping off to ride waves virtually within view of granite Gotham provides a unique, slightly illicit, dreamlike pleasure. Surfing shouldn’t be possible here, and yet it is.

Artists, writers and others in trend-conscious fields are plugged in to New York’s surf scene now, but most of the rest of the city is not, and riding the subway with a board clasped to one’s chest like a dance partner still elicits smiles and queries from otherwise game-faced straphangers. There is something disarming about the sight of a surfboard in New York, where it has a nutty, quixotic quality, like a pair of wings.

When New York City surfers cross paths, they greet one another, exchange notes. Because so many of them are new to surfing, having taken it up in adulthood, they are less like seen-it-all New Yorkers than surfers in pre-“Gidget” California, who would pull over when they passed another car of surfers and introduce themselves. Anyone who has surfed in Santa Cruz or Huntington Beach — chilly, xenophobic “surf cities” — knows how exceptional this urban aloha is.

And if surfing has a soul, it is aloha: welcome, hospitality, generosity without thought of recompense. The word is Hawaiian, of course, and Hawaiians are the ones who gave surfing to the rest of the world. The bitter irony is that the rest of the world returned the favor with a vengeance, and Hawaii’s storied line-ups, flooded by outsiders, are now as famous for being jam-packed and short-tempered as for the waves.

Which is why Quiksilver’s descent on Long Beach is so ominous. Imprinting the Quiksilver brand on New York’s burgeoning surf scene makes perfect sense from a business perspective, but the corporate siren song threatens to sour the mood of surfing in New York, which for the moment remains a bastion of surf spirit. It’s a spirit that companies like Quiksilver claim to value but have in fact helped degrade elsewhere, peddling a vision of surfing’s blithe, blue allure that studiously omits the ugly realities of overcrowding that such marketing abets.

Come what may in the way of waves next month at Long Beach, Quiksilver will do its utmost to lure more people to the sport — and to the cash registers. In an atmosphere of staid, commodified carnival, tents will be emblazoned with sponsor names; top pros will sign posters of themselves riding waves that bear scant resemblance to the nearby surf; and swag will be given away to a milling crowd. There will be a few media types and the odd celebrity, including the 10-time world champion Kelly Slater, and young Balaram Stack, a homegrown star.

Even with such talent on offer, the contest itself may well prove a somewhat dull, obscure affair. Surfing just doesn’t lend itself naturally to formal competition: waves prove too fickle in the best of conditions, and the judging criteria, periodically rewritten though they are, tend to produce relatively safe, conservative performances. The most avid fans of pro surfing are former pro surfers.

And should a good hurricane swell grace the event, a sizable portion of the audience will probably be catching waves of their own rather than spectating along the boardwalk. From Breezy Point to Montauk, the breaks will be stippled with the seal-like forms of surfers celebrating a spontaneous pagan holiday, work and school happily spurned.

It’s not hard to imagine New York’s urban aloha going the way of its Polynesian progenitor, but for the moment a genial, just-folks atmosphere reigns. That’s because it’s still possible to find a bit of ocean to oneself here. And if living in New York proves anything, it’s that it only takes a little — quiet, green, surf — to suffice.

Would that Quiksilver and its confreres learn the same lesson.

Shane Herring - InnerViews

Shane Herring - InnerViews from on Vimeo.

We stumbled upon Shane doing ding repair in Bylesy's used surfboard shop outside Byron Bay. After defeating Kelly Slater at the Coke Classic at Narrabeen in 1992, Shane Herring was proclaimed the greatest Australian surfer since Michael Peterson. But cover shots, a six-figure salary and endless parties eventually undid the focus and determination of this rising star. In a post Andy Irons world, Shane's story serves as a cautionary tale for up-and-coming surfers regarding the dangerous effects fame and money can have on fragile young egos. Over a cigarette and bottle of wine, Shane shares some of his struggles and life lessons in this episode of Korduroy's InnerViews.

AC/DC - You Shook Me All Night Long

AC/DC - You Shook Me All Night Long Lyrics

She was a fast machine she kept her motor clean
She was the best damn woman that I ever seen
She had the sightless eyes telling me no lies
Knocking me out with those American thighs
Taking more than her share
Had me fighting for air
She told me to come but I was already there
'Cause the walls start shaking
The earth was quaking
My mind was aching
And we were making it love

And you shook me all night long
Yeah you shook me all night long

Working double time on the seduction line
She's one of a kind she's just mine all mine
Wanted no applause it's just another course
Made a meal outta me
And come back for more
Had to cool me down to take another round
Now I'm back in the ring to take another swing
'Cause the walls were shaking the earth was quaking
My mind was aching
And we were making it love

And you shook me all night long
Yeah you shook me all night long
It knocked me out I said you
Shook me all night long
You had me shaking and you
Shook me all night long
Yeah you shook me
When you took me

You really took me and you
Shook me all night long
Ah, you shook me all night long
Yeah yeah you shook me all night long
You really got me and you
Shook me all night long
Yeah you shook me
Yeah you shook me
All night long

The Art of Parra (Paranoid)


HBTV: Parra - Short for Paranoid... from HBTV on Vimeo.

The name Parra should resonate with any person relatively well-versed in the realm of street culture. With an influence spanning art, sneaker design and even more recently, furniture, the Amsterdam-based artist has had the uncanny ability to make many things he touches into a solid hit. We focus on the efforts of Parra in the past and more recently as well as his background.
