Fos uploaded the full Heroin Skateboards’ video, Everything’s Going To Be Alright overnight for your viewing pleasure. Crossfire premiered it back in 2002 at the Subterania Club next door to then Playstation Skatepark for 600 people. The rest is history but the the memories between the hangover make it feel like it was yesterday.

Get the teas on.

Bake and Destroy video premiere starts riots in LA

The Baker Skateboards video premiere of Bake and Destroy was the talk of the town this weekend after skaters allegedly started riots in Los Angeles. The Hollywood Reporter and other news sources have run stories on the event where a few hundred skaters were said to have rampaged outside the Vine Theatre in Hollywood after too many turned up to get in. Allegedly bottles and rocks were thrown at Police who were on full scale alert with tear gas and shooters.

UK skater Alex Moul was there: “It was so gnarly it started a riot and that’s not a joke, Hollywood blvd shut down and locked in for our own protection as police were firing rubber bullets and letting off tear gas.”

Deathwish Skateboards pro Erik Ellington was one of hundreds inside the theatre when all hell broke loose outside and told ESPN:

“When I was watching the video I was midway through the theater and I heard from somebody that there was a riot going on out front and it’s crazy when you find something like that out when you really can’t do anything about it. If they shut the video off, there would be a riot on the inside.”

Watch Geoff Rowley on 411VM from 1995

geoff_rowleyThis video gem featuring a very young, then Airwalk shoe sponsored Geoff Rowley in 1995 is just one of the many videos shot for 411 Video Magazine.

At the time, 411VM was our main source for keeping in touch with skate footage worldwide alongside full-length VHS releases, and were available at the best skate shops monthly. It’s strange to think that the internet even back then didn’t cater for video like it does now as broadband/high speed connections was not available like it is now.

The good news is that Skateboarder Magazine in the US have started rolling out all of the 411VM back catalogue bringing you stacks of skate history from various profiles, team features, event clips, individual sections and much more. Keep an eye on it as it rolls out but for now, watch Rowley’s Rookies section that we stumbled across last night.

Cityscape featuring Mark Suciu

marksucuiMuch hype has been coming from the US about Mark Suciu. Here’s another reason why his skills on a skateboard should not be overlooked this week.
