Classic Mark Gonzales footage fest

mark_gonzales_skateThere’s nobody else out there like the Gonz. He’s one of the nicest guys you will ever meet and one of the most creatively fun skateboarders who has left more than a legacy to every generation that picks up a deck.

This features footage from Kicked Out Of Everywhere by Real (1999), Reel To Reel by Dan Wolfe (2001), and How They Get There by Spike Jonze (1997) all glued together by Jason Jessee, who introduces three must watch Mark Gonzales video parts for Thrasher’s Classic’s feature.

Get the teas on for 15 minutes of skateboarding gold.

20th Anniversary Blind Video Days reunion

blind-skateboards-video-daysUnsure how this managed to pass us unnoticed but enjoy this gathering of classic Blind Skateboards legends for a 20 year anniversary shoot for Skateboarder Magazine.

Watch Guy Mariano, Mark Gonzales, Rudy Johnson, Jason Lee and Jordan Richter all reminisce one of skateboarding history’s most influential videos in 3 parts and enjoy all the sections on Skately if you have never seen this.

Watch: Behind the Video Days Reunion

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of undoubtedly one of the most culturally significant skate videos ever produced, Skateboarder Mag have recently reunited the Video Days crew for a photo shoot in the February/March 2011 issue.

The first behind-the-scenes style video is up for your viewing pleasure now. It comes complete with the awkward conversation inherent in school reunions and a strange sense of real-world surrealism when you consider that organising this shoot could easily have cost a lot more than Spike Jonze’s entire budget for Video Days. Weird, but very wonderful all the same.

Have a look below for Mark Gonzales, Guy Mariano, Jason Lee, Rudy Johnson and Jason Richter all under one familiar looking roof.
