Cats, pigs and straight up shredding in Miami. Chocolate reps Elijah Berle, Raven Tershy, Stevie Perez, Vincent Alvarez, Jerry Hsu, Chico Brenes, Kenny Anderson and Aramis Hudson look like they had a nice time down there.

Californian skate filmer Miguel Valle has released a compilation of his best stuff for Red Bull this week. Press play for some rad shit from Al Davis, Jon Nguyen, Joey Guevera, Brian Delatorre, Elijah Berle, Ishod Wair and more.
If you want more, there’s an interview with Miguel here.
There’s a rail slam in here to flat that should wake you up, a blunt slide that is sick and so much more. Elijah Berle’s Raw Files made up 5 mins of rad skating. Bloke put it down for Propeller.
Enjoy this fun trip to San Francisco with Girl and Chocolate aficionados. Rad to see Malto skating again after that awful injury. Jerry Hsu is skating too.
This tour trip video also Stevie Perez, Rick Howard, Vincent Alvarez, Elijah Berle, Chris Roberts, Justin Eldridge, Brandon Biebel, Raven Tershy and Johnny Jones.
With all the talk of the new Vans video now over and done with, it’s time for it to be unleashed to the public. So here’s the first official teaser and unveiling of it’s name: PROPELLER. Yep, you heard it here first.
Greg Hunt is behind the making of it that will have full parts from Rowley, Crockett, Dollin and so many more. Look out for the full film this May that you will be able to download or pick up in stores.

As the Trunk Boyz were getting tattooed in an ink joint down the road and necking sake bombs, art was being hung in the Hoxton Hotel, hair was being pulled at the Richmix, and a steady wave of people from all corners of the country started to fill the cinema to see Pretty Sweet.
Despite the fact that the team riders were fresh off the plane from the US premiere, the overall vibe was chilled and the Girl fam were certainly hyped on bringing this to London. The film played, the tricks flowed, the beers and cocktails spilled, and the spoilers will remain elsewhere for now whilst the film premiere’s across Europe.
One word that will spring to mind when you get to see this production for the first time is ‘fun’. The Girl and Chocolate teams and crew obviously had large portions of the good stuff filming this over a 5 year period. Look out for the DVD that will be hitting your local skate shop in the next week, or get ready to download it from i-Tunes on the 27th.
Thanks to all at Girl and Chocolate, Diana and all at the Hoxton Hotel for accommodating us on the night and the Never Mind The Art Dump exhibition that runs until December 7th. Thanks to Tiger Beer, all at Form Distribution, Ben Larthe, and everyone who returned home on the night without stealing from The Art Dump. Karma is certainly a beautiful beast. Enjoy.
This seems to be the week that keeps giving in terms of amazing skate footage. The Diamond Bowl gets ravaged by Raven Tershy, Vincent Alvarez, Rick McCrank, Scott Johnston, Robbie Russo, Elijah Berle, Eric Koston and more.
Hot chip’s side project, The 2 Bears have released a video featuring various Chocolate and Girl team riders whilst on tour throughout Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua this year. Get some summer beats here.
