Nike SB Constant – new Nike SB video with heavy UK presence

Thursday, June 3rd, 2021

Nike SB Constant, what’s in a name eh? Constant as in ‘constantly releasing content’? Constant as in, ‘fuck Covid, Nike SB are still out filming?’ Maybe even, ‘Nike SB Constant, because there are mad rumours online’. I’m guessing it could be any/all of the above to be honest. If you pay attention to Instagram comment threads or the Slap forum then you might be aware of some of these Swoosh developments. Global brand leads moving on, ex Blueprint pros leaving, Olympians not wearing Nikes any more, etc.
Ultimately none of the above really means that much to the likes of you and I but it’s always interesting to speculate isn’t it?

Nike SB Constant

Nike SB would’ve been hard-pressed to drop a stronger two finger salute to the scurrilous rumours mentioned above than
with this video. This piece serves up 30 minutes of severe pisstake skateboarding. And when I say ‘pisstake’ I genuinely mean it.
This has to be hands down the most inclusive and diverse video Nike B have ever put out. From massive transition to manuals, a truly eclectic squad guarantees this a spot on the ‘web clips that qualify as actual videos’ list.
Grant Taylor kicks things off and shares the intro with Eric ‘I’m funny honestly’ Koston before Primitive ubermensch Carlos Ribeiro blows the doors off. This dude is supernaturally talented – so much innovative rail tech, crazy lines and the most composed style. Truly astounding. Sean Malto pops up during this barrage of Brazilian technicality, (weirdly set to a remix of Kenny Reed’s tune from New Deal’s ‘Seven Year Glitch’) but whatever: it’s cool to see Malto back again.
From there we are straight into an epic UK section featuring Atlantic Drift and Swoosh representatives Kyron Davies, Korahn Gayle, Casper Brooker, Kyle Wilson and Chris Jones. This is amazing to see – all five hold their own amidst probably the heaviest Nike SB video ever made so mad props to the lads. Buy Korahn a pint next time you see him.
Following the Uk contingent is Daan van der Linden who has been stuck on the injury bench a lot since joining Nike. As such, I’m unsure whether the footage on Nike SB Constant is old or new but either way, it’s a reminder why he’s just dropped his own fishing themed shoe. Ridiculous.
The bangers just keep on exploding with a solid Australian section featuring all manner of heads. Likewise, Nike SB’s female team get plenty of shine with Nicole Hause in particular dropping heavy street and transition footage alongside Elissa Steamer BGPs. Can’t ask for more can you?
Rightful holders of the Nike SB Constant curtains are Polar Skate Co pro and qualified Swedish Olympian Oski and the superhuman Grant Taylor. It’s pointless to even begin to try and express how off the charts this section of the video is. Jaw dropping, literally. Just go watch it – you’ll soil yourselves.

Antihero skateboards do it again ‘Arbitrary Function’

Friday, January 3rd, 2020

All I wanted for Christmas was more Grant Taylor footage! Like a scabby Santa, Antihero skateboards came through and dropped a video bomb just in time for the festive season. Like their last full-lengther Destination Unknown, 2019’s Antihero skateboard’s release came in the form of a completely unheralded 15-minute banger.
In an age where people rarely go to the bog without teasing their toilet decision on Instagram for a month beforehand, it’s immensely refreshing to see that Antihero still have the bollocks to just drop a video as heavy as Implosionistic tendencies: Arbitrary Function with almost zero pre-hype.
The reason? Well, they just don’t need to hype it up first. It’s Antihero, it’s going to be sick!

 

 
Antihero skateboards do it again

Established in 1995 by early street skating pioneer and one time Santa Monica Airlines and Underworld Element pro skater Julien Stranger, Antihero skateboards appeared at a pivotal time in skateboarding’s development away from the inward-looking overly-technical skateboard scene of the early 1990’s.
Emerging from under the Deluxe umbrella, from the outset Antihero represented the raw underbelly of skateboarding and offered a pure vision of what being a skateboarder meant – regardless of trends or perceived rules.

 

 

Antihero skateboards do it again

Their inaugural video release ‘Fucktards‘ (1997) featuring the original team of Julien Stranger, Sean Young, John Cardiel, Eric J and Bob Burnquist firmly established an aesthetic that showcased every style of skating from vert to street and focused on the grimier aspects of the culture.
Anti Hero skateboards‘ instantly recognisable graphical output followed in the same vein with memorable graphics from the likes of Todd Francis (amongst many others) that celebrate the underbelly of the American dream and revel in the realities of street trash, political corruption, vagrancy and the darker side of life.

 

 

As the brand grew, the team changed but the underlying philosophy did not – hit the road and skate everything and anything that you encounter.
Antihero‘s video releases to date are numerous and include classics such as:
Fucktards (1997)
Cow (1998)
Two Songs (2002)
Cash Money Vagrant (2003)
Bonus Footage (2006)
and their full-length video Destination Unknown (2014) released in customary fashion with absolutely zero advertising beforehand to worldwide acclaim.

 

 

Antihero skateboards do it again

Here’s the timeless 1997 Fucktards in full just to remind you why this Antihero skateboards is now, and always will be, the shit.

When you’ve done that – take your fingers for a stroll over to our webstore and fill your boots as we’ve loads of Antihero merchandise online and ready to roll.
