The two most influential skateboarders of all-time are turning 50 years old this year; Mark Gonzales and Tony Hawk. Holy shit. Skateboarding is getting old and so are we, but it’s aging like a fine wine—or at least they are. Back in the day, no one could have seen skateboarding past your early twenties as an option, and I’m talking about really going for it skateboarding. But as time has gone on, all of the forefathers have proven time and time again that there is no age limit. That progression is always available if you’re willing to go for it. And that’s something these two have never stopped doing; going for it. The influence, the tricks, the progression, the representation, the everything. Through the highs and lows of skateboarding’s popularity,…

pants   rant

Just as a pair of pants has two legs, this two-pronged fact has determined the course of my life: The first thing that I notice in a movie or a clip is the pants, and I have NEVER gotten pants right. I’m one of those people, who may have the right name brand, but at the wrong time. Maybe I just have a weird-shaped body, or severe body dysmorphia, but whatever it is, I have always thought about pants, and these thoughts have not been happy thoughts. As such, the three decade-long story of my involvement with skateboarding has been an ever-changing rotation of pant styles. From Bugle Boy pleats to Ghetto Wear cargoes, the late ’80s were an ill, as in ill-fitting, time. Skateboarding has always taken its fashion cues…

ben chadourne

Converse CONS’ first full-length video will be premiering by the time you read this. The anticipation is high, the team is heavy, and we really don’t know what to expect! The facts are, it’s named Purple, and the talented Ben Chadourne is steering the ship. It seemed prime time to grill Ben on what exactly we’re in store for and what’s gone into this milestone of a skateboarding film. First thing’s first, what does the title Purple mean and how did you come up with it? It’s all metaphoric. I’m colorblind and I can barely see tones of blue and red, but the combination of it appears very clear to me. It’s an image of what this project is about. You move forward with individuals, characters with different personalities collecting elements of…

dc shoes

Nostalgia—a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations. Those words, which I jacked straight from the dictionary, have never been truer when it comes to skateboarding… at least right now. We’re alive in a time where nostalgia is commonly celebrated and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Whether we acknowledge it or not, nostalgia is always being celebrated in one-way or another. In this case particularly, anyone who grew up watching The DC Video (2003) or reading old skate magazines (around the late 90s early 00s) knows that the DC Lynx is a skate shoe that oozes nostalgia. (Think of Wenning, Stevie Williams, Ryan Smith, Kalis…) And as some of you might’ve seen, DC has officially brought the Lynx…

mark appleyard

Since scoring his Check Out in our August 1999 issue, Mark Appleyard has enjoyed a near twenty-year run as a bonified professional skateboarder. Given how easy he makes it look (including being the only rider to appear in Photosynthesis and Sorry) we might also consider branding him a magician. Now with two kids and a fresh run at a new barnburner single part—Apples checks in to contemplate past, present, and future. What’s up Mark? Do you remember the first time you saw this Check Out? Hell yeah. I remember shooting the sequence with Pete Thompson during Tampa Am. I think we skated the park that day then went to that double set. I knew of that double set. I also knew that shooting with Pete then was a big deal (He was…
