Transworld video #30, duets will be out this November about the same time you’re reading this. To accompany it, there’s a full feature starting on page 58 right here in this issue. With the video deadline in hindsight and the wrapping-up of this issue, I started reflecting on what this brand has done over the past 35 years and how it’s been such an integral part of skateboarding history. Long before any of the current staff were here, TransWorld was producing some of the most iconic content around and spreading the idea of skateboarding across the globe. And while the early days of the brand had some pretty embarrassing messages being preached (if you know, you know), the stories and photography only got better with time and the best skaters…

director’s club

Ted Newsome (Uno [96], 4 Wheel Drive [96], Greatest Hits [97], Cinematographer [97]) Favorite TWS video? Sight Unseen. It was just such a sweet spot. For myself, I really liked shooting the 16mm film in 4 Wheel Drive. Favorite part? Penny bank-to-chain in Uno. I think Skin filmed it. There wasn’t really any craft to it but when you’re documenting Tom, it doesn’t matter. Favorite Director? I have to go with my high school buddy Jon Holland. Ewan Bowman (In Bloom [02], Free Your Mind [03]) Favorite TWS video? The Reason, with the Moby intro. Those titles. That video. Just an emotional rollercoaster ride of epicness. Favorite part? Cardiel, Sight Unseen. Original ripper. Original Coors. Favorite Director? It’s all three; Jon, Ty, Greg—those are the guys. They set it all. Like Questionable (’92). They set the precedent. Ty Evans (Cinematographer [97],…

Politic’s Florida-to-Colorado transplant, Jonathan Ettman has a new part dropping this month on To give it some reference and to reveal some of Jonathan’s smooth-skating secrets, we caught up with him to find out why he still skates dead-stock Habitat kicks, what’s it’s like to have a pro model next to Renaud and Pepper, and more. Is this video part a transition from winter to summer or something along those lines? Is there some kind of loose concept to it? It naturally turned out that way. The idea was to show different spots outside of what people usually see a city known for. Every town has their gems if you’re willing to look. I’d see spots to skate if I was hiking or exploring a new place, and I’d just make…

It’s here, TransWorld video #30. Can you believe it? For this opus, Joe “JoeFace” Monteleone and James Buchmann approached us about making an all shared-parts project, called duets, shot on 4k/RED cameras. It’s been a year and a half in the making, so read up on the thoughts behind the scenes as we’ve hit the finish line. How did the whole idea of this video come about? JoeFace: I got wind that the 29th TWS video was supposed to be the last full-length video, and I called Mike Fitzgerald and said, “I have an idea for a video and I’m gonna come down tomorrow and talk to you and Jaime [Owens] and everybody about it.” I hung up the phone and I called [James] Buchmann, and I was like, “I’m going to Transworld,…

damn am 2018 recap

It takes a rare and special type of skateboarder to be marketable while at the same time possessing the skills to put it all together in a contest. The norm was always the skater that ripped but couldn’t make more than one trick in a row, or that won everything but nobody cared about. But following the lead of let’s say Evan Smith, the skater that brings the hype while also being able to land a bunch of tricks for the judges is becoming the new normal. Think Tyson Peterson, Zion Wright, and Jamie Foy. As skateboarding continues its relentless march forward, the Damn Am has become a breeding ground for the next generation of your favorites. With 18 years of history, which includes all of those skaters I just mentioned,…

once again, for your viewing pleasure

With full acknowledgement on my part in beating the 90s nostalgia horse to a bloody pulp, I can’t help but feel that things are getting a little jumbled up in our appreciation of this highly romanticized era. In the face of full-length feature films, questionable fashion choices revisited and more than a few headscratcher #TBTs on the ol’ IG, I’m fearful that a few of our most beloved clichés from the late 80s/early 90s film canon are being passed over in favor of lesser honorees. Consider this list my last-ditch effort at trying to revive these forgotten faves before the inevitable 90s backlash happens and everyone starts wearing heartagrams again. Shitty Footage (Shackle Me Not, Useless Wooden Toys, 1281) When the only “filmers” were either Stacy Peralta, your Dad or the homie’s turn,…
