Sacai & Nike are dropping a second round of the LDWaffle & Blazer shoes, as well as apparel in September and skateboarder Sky Brown, is one of two Nike athletes featured in the launch.

These new Nike's are pretty different as they "double" up on things like the swoosh, the laces, and tongue. If you get the LDWaffle the sole appears to be doubled or stacked, too! The apparel is a feat in itself with fashion-forward function x design that makes you look twice - is that a windbreaker or a skirt or is it leggings? The collection consists of eleven pieces and is expected to sell out quickly as anticipation is high.

Breaking News! HBO Orders 6 Episodes Of "Betty" The New Skateboard Series.

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Just in from DEADLINE:

HBO has given a six-episode series order to Betty (fka Untitled Skateboarding Project), a skateboarding comedy inspired by Crystal Moselle’s critically acclaimed feature Skate Kitchen, from Moselle and her longtime friend and collaborator, Love co-creator Lesley Arfin.

Additionally, five actors who starred in the film — Dede Lovelace, Ajani Russell, Moonbear, Rachelle Vinberg, and Nina Moran — have been cast as series regulars in the series, which is currently in production in New York City.

Written by Moselle and Arfin, Betty, inspired by Moselle’s 2018 Sundance film, is set against the backdrop of New York City. It will follow a diverse group of young women navigating their lives through the predominantly male-oriented world of skateboarding.

In her first narrative feature, Skate Kitchen, writer-director Moselle immersed herself in the life of skater girls, resulting in the film’s authenticity, combining poetic, atmospheric filmmaking and hypnotic skating sequences. Skate Kitchen captures the experience of women in male-dominated spaces and tells a story of a girl who learns the importance of camaraderie and self-discovery.

Want to know more about the characters the girls play?

Primitive Race Releases "Turn it Up" Music Video Featuring 2 Female Skaters.

Monday, August 12, 2019

Beverly Flood & Cassie Oseguera

We are so stoked to be invloved in this video release for the band Primitive Race and their song "Turn it Up" - the video features skaters Cassie Oseguera and Beverly Flood.

Primitive Race debut the video for “Turn It Up" (Dave Lombardo Mix)” with the skateboard themed clip arriving as the band prepares to release the remix album Cranial Matter on Friday via Metropolis Records.

The video for the track features two female skateboarders, and was inspired by Mosley’s sister-in-law, Cindy Whitehead, a member of the Skateboarding Hall of Fame.

“The first time I met Chuck he was playing here in Los Angeles — it must have been about 1993 and I really had no idea what type of music he played when my then boyfriend dragged me off to hear him,” recalled Whitehead. “When I walked into the venue it was super loud, and he was larger than life, screaming lyrics at the audience, who were going nuts in response. Even though I wasn’t familiar with his rock/metal/punk background, I knew that his intense stage presence was something special.”

She continued, “What I didn’t learn until many years later was that my brother-in-law was also the sweetest, most supportive guy around. In recent years he would rock one of our ‘It’s Not About Pretty’ vintage flannels that supports girls in skateboarding on stage at almost every show he did. And if someone admired it, he’d give it away to spread the message and I’d get a call asking if I could ship yet another couple out. He may have been a hardcore musician and legend, but to me he was so much more.”

Kniker added, “It felt very natural when conceptualizing a video to involve Cindy and her skating team. Chuck was extremely proud of Cindy’s accomplishments and his passion for skating can be traced back decades as well. This was the perfect backdrop to honor him in a cool but personal way.”

Primitive Race’s Cranial Matter — which also features remixes by Toshi Kasai, Dave Ogilvie, and others — arrives August 9th at all major streaming and download services, with physical copies available as well.

The 1978 Movie Classic "Skateboard" is Back!

Get ready!  For those of you that remember this classic skateboard movie (that a lot of our friends were in), to the younger generation that wants to see rare older footage and the first movie starring numerous pro skaters, the 1978 movie, SKATEBOARD  will be back out on DVD Aug. 27, 2019 from MVD Entertainment Group.

The footage includes highlights, with cutting edge tricks, ramps and barrel jumping, all supplying the inspiration to the young folks of the day for what they would have liked to fill up their time doing as the skateboard craze really took hold.

Special features include:

~ audio commentary with director George Gage and skateboard legend Tony Alva
 ~  an on camera interview with Alva
the original theatrical trailer
~  and a photo gallery of lobby cards.

The premise of the movie was this: A sleazy Hollywood agent with gambling debts has to come up with cash fast. He organizes a team of exceptionally talented skateboarders to enter them in a major skateboarding competition, in spite of opposition from a dangerous gangster. If they win, they get $20,000 and the bookie leaves him alone.

Manny Bloom (Allen Garfield) is a small-time theatrical agent who has fallen on hard times. His troubles include not having the cash to pay alimony to his ex-wife, and even more pressing, his bookie is asking for more money from him, so what could save his skin? Naturally, a team of local skateboarders.

Making up this team, are a collection of skilled skateboarders including teen star Leif Garrett, who did all his own stunts on this, plus a number of boarders from the famous Zephyr skate crew. Backing him up is Millicent a female nurse and mother figure to accompany the team as they drive around the state putting on shows and entering competitions.

** If you don't know who Leif Garrett is, ask your mom - she'll fill you in.
