When I was sixteen years old when I first met Russ. I lived with my parents in Pleasanton, California while Russ lived in a neighboring city. Roughly once a week we would meet up and session a local spot. I remember the first time that I realized that Russ can ride switch. My egocentric sixteen year old self was […]

  Nothing about Entitlement Urethane is particularly conventional. In fact, a lot of Entitlement doesn’t make any sense at all. The primary focus of the company is to provide the missing link between gathering media and enjoying oneself. We formed an “official team” based on personality traits, skill, style, and a general ability to have […]

Last summer I wound up passing through Melbourne, Australia. I knew of a local guy named Shaune after watching a couple videos. He was quite new to the Freebord scene and was stoked to meet another rider. Shaune took me out for a brew at local underground’esk bar. The pub was tucked away in a dark ally. Either the […]

  It was unanimously decided that Miles Parker On A Longboard deserves a lengthy video to demonstrate his ability to navigate down a hill (plural). MPOAL is the type of person with a natural ability to maneuver a longboard sideways. During his pre-adolescent years MPOAL was readily lurking the streets of Oakland & Berkeley with a penny board on […]

Living as a weird skater kid II 7 p.m. Wednesday night. Loathing myself in a heap of self-inflicted procrastination. I came across a two minute clip on Facebook about a portrait photographer named Richard Renaldi. His project is called Touching Strangers and it starts with him standing in the middle of a busy street with […]

The boundaries of documentation and the downhill skateboarding community.  I was listening to an NPR interview about Werner Herzog’s documentary Grizzly Man. It’s about this conservationist dude, Timothy Treadwell who hangs out with grizzly bears in Alaska, believing he had bridged the gap between people and these beautiful beasts. When one of the bears he loves […]
