Jeff Grosso – Loveletters – John Cardiel Part 2

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

 

Jeff Grosso’s Loveletters series for Vans has been providing us with quality entertainment for eight seasons and long may that continue. Now the second part of the John Cardiel episode is here and it’s just as good if not even better than the first. With the same mixture of various interviews, archive footage and photos that reminds us of how gnarly Cardiel, one of skateboarding’s most influential characters really is. Screams, slams, makes, words from most of the Anti Hero team and much much more. John is one of a kind and his contribution to skateboarding is a heavy one, if this doesn’t get you hyped we don’t know what will.

Jeff Grosso – Love Letters -Cardiel

Friday, May 12th, 2017

 

Yes, yes and to right YES!

 

New season from Vans ‘Jeff Grosso’s Love Letters To Skateboarding‘ starting off with a serious bang. You by now will be aware of the saying “ALL HAIL CARDIEL” well this just further cements it up more with epic archival footage from the original skateboarding madman John Cardiel!

 

Way back in the late nineties I had to pleasure to follow the now legendary tour of which John was a part of, yeah I’d watched every video possible with Card’s in it and yes this is the reason we’d traveled the breath of the country to watch him along with the Gonz etc skate our crappy UK parks but not nothing could prepare you for watching Cardiel skate in the flesh. I don’t even say this likely as in this era we where quite acustomed to turning up at Goshen Sports Center (the only vert in the country at the time) to see Tony Hawk and likes tearing it a new one but witnessing Cardiel frothing like a madman and inventing impossible lines at Romford park and tweaking every which way at Leigh On Sea park he’s forever been an all time favorite (I’m pretty much sure I don’t stand alone on this one!)

 

Enough of the waffle, basically stoked once again to see the next season of Jeff Grosso’s Love Letters To Skateboarding return with a special part one all about John Cardiel.

 

Get watching now whilst chanting loudly “ALL HAIL CARDIEL!”

Brian Anderson – NY Summer Part

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

 

Despite having clips in numerous videos, the third installment of Nike SB’s Chronicles series among them, its been about ten years since Brian Anderson released a full part. In that time he has changed board sponsors twice, released a pro shoe, became pretty much the first major pro skateboarder to discuss his homosexuality openly and along with that he’s obviously been smashing skating as well. Joey Digital turned his New York footage from last summer into a rad little edit, appropriately called ‘NY Summer’. So give the play button a click below because we all know Brian Anderson footage is always worthwhile.

Robbie Russo is Pro

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

 

 

 

 

Carlos Vargas has put together an edit that will not disappoint. Showing you why Anti Hero Skateboards have just turned Robbie Russo Pro, although it’s pretty obvious news as he’s a natural shredder, a concrete destroyer and as stylish as they come. Have a watch above to be blown away because the possibilities on what can be done on a skateboard are endless. I love skateboarding and this edit is pure power, hyped!
