This ones a nice taste of what it was like skateboarding in South Carolina 10 years ago. They recently held a reunion-repremiere down in Charleston and it was a pretty damn good time. Plenty of "oohs" and "ahhhs" and of course plenty of laughs about clothing choices in the mid-2000s. So here it is...Dirtbags, a film by Jack Abbot and Cory Wilkinson. Featuring Ty Brown, JT Gleason, Aaron Green, Chris Jacobs, Bill Pardee, CJ Ulm, Dusty Yauilla and more.
This is an excellent film from Mike Hogan (Lowkey / Gang Wars) that showcases skateboard talent from various cities in Western NC and South Carolina. Featuring the likes of Justin Fyle, Jacob Atkisson, George Etheredge, Alex Dixon, Tre Greenlee, Justin Nixon, Mckenzie Goff, Travis Holder, Zack Cotton, Taylor Cook, Jerry Harris, Dusty Yauilla, James Patrick Heinz, John Glisson, Jack R. Cox, Pat Bucci, Will Marx, Aaron Green, CJ Ulm, William Mcfadden, Ty Brown and more. Watch parts 1 and 2 below.
Here's a nice full length video offering from BlueTile and Dorian Warneck (that's how you know it's good) out of Columbia, SC. Featuring Tripp Bartlett, Jon Chappell, Jeremy Davis, Aaron Falin, Chris Gardner, Aaron Green, John Hill, Jamie Hyatt, Chris Jacobs, Andrew Thomas, Nick Thompson, Dorian Warneck, Dusty Yauilla, and friends.
How did I miss this video growing up? This ones got an all-star NC cast and a helluva filmmaker behind the lens - John Evans aka Jevans. You know it's a mid-2000's NC video when there's FlexPay, eS accels, baggy jeans, big shirts, and bridge rail. From Winston-Salem to Wilmington and beyond, this is another one you might want to brush up on. Featuring : Trey Justice, Steve Fox, Chad Shooter, Jed Shooter, Cameron Keene, Sturgil Horn, Eric Reaves, Reuben Pickle, Daniel Roberts, Justin Brock, Drew Hanner, and more.
Another sick one out of NC by TKP. A mix of skateboarding (duh), art, and experimental video magazine style before everyone had phones attached to their hands and GoPros up their asses. Too many good things in here to name but highlights include a Wilmington section, Greenville section, plenty of NC State, and so on.
This right here is the opus. This is the video that put NC videos on the map. This is the video that made NC skateboarding relevant for my friends and I (and probably a bunch of other people). This one is fucking epic. A film by James Tupper (of Post22) and Travis Knapp-Prasek (of SkateNC) featuring parts from Scotty Moore, Jeremy Menard, Ty Rodhe, Brett Abramsky, Jed Shooter, Chad Shooter, Tyler Tufty, Dan Murphy, and the first full length part (that I know of) from Justin Brock. You're gonna wanna watch this one AND the bonus montage.
These right here are a few epic NC pieces of history the new generation may have missed. If you're looking for some heavy shit that went down or wanna brush up on your ABD's at your local NC skate spot or if you wanna see some spots you ain't never seen before check this shit out. Edit Skateboards full length video "Viewfinder" from the mid-2000's and the Edit Promo from 2001 or so. Featuring : Chad Shooter, Daniel Roberts, Ricky Covach, Drew Hanner, and Jed Shooter and many many more. Big thanks to Ricky Covach for ripping these DVD's.
This is a classic if I've ever seen one! North Carolina's oldest skate shop in the mid-2000's was on fire. There's at least 3 different fedora appearances, but don't let that deter you because you know you wore one too. There's plenty of sick shit to make up for it ;)
Featuring Anthony Alcantara, John Buchanan, Sam Buxton, Dennis Coleman, Marky Clements, Drew Hanner, Tom Hyson, Trey Justice, Cameron Keene, David Knott, Marty Markel, Jeremy Menard, Reuben Pickle, Jason Preston, Chad Shooter, Jed Shooter, Nate Weston, and Travis Knapp-Prasek. Enjoy!
So this would be a full length video if the DVD wasn't scratched, so it's as much as I could get. Found this in the stacks at Another Skate Shop so I figured it could use some internet time. Mid-2000's I assume, in Columbia, SC and surrounding cities and states. Parts from Andrew Thomas, Chris Jacobs, Jeremy Davis, Chris Gardner, Wes Cobb, Jeff Rochester, and it cuts off at the end of a Nick Thompson part. Enjoy!
Found this one in the ole DVD stacks and it's got some pure Florida gold on it. Parts from Brad Cromer, Ben Gore, Manny Santiago, Dave Bachinsky, Matt Farah, David Hamzik, Jack Runnels. Dario Gaudino, Eric Hawrylciw, Rory Bender, Brendan Carroll, Steve McClintock, and more. Filmed/edited by Thomas Chrpa.
