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.
This might not be much of a throwback since this is a brand-new video, but it's still a throwback since it happened in the past right? Permanent Vacation and Griffin Faulkner present PVV2 featuring Nick Brown, Gabe Sirenko-siryj, Griffin Faulkner, Adam Meyer and more in this new video. Enjoy.
The long awaited video part/montage from Nick Bland - in case you missed the premiere and release party. Here it is.
This isn't exactly old, but if it happened in the past it can still be thrown-back to, correct? This video was and still is extremely hype. Featuring parts from Blake Spencer, Andrew Kolometz, Hunter McNeish, Trevor Biggs, Kyrin McNair, Javaris Williams, Justin Pittman, Ian Isenhour, Jay Pitser, Andrew Bumgarner, Malik Jordan, Ty Brown, John Pankus, Gus Gordon, Kinser Cathey, and Travis Kirkpatrick. Not to mention three friends/family montages. This shit is stacked with Cacka goodies! Enjoy. Video by Drew Adams. Uploaded as a playlist so each part will play separately.
Unfortunately, at the time of writing this, I haven't watched it yet. But it's on the list. And there's a lot of NC guys in it who I know for a fact skate better than me, so I know I will enjoy watching it. Hopefully you do too. Video by Robert Minichan and whoever else sent in clips or pressed the record button on their phone.
