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 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.
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!
Them boys from Western NC get the fuck down. I don't remember when this video came out but I recently revisited it and thought to myself, "This is so good." So here it is :
In honor of the BlackSheep Video dropping tomorrow, here's a taste of what some of their young, up-and-coming team dudes can do. We present : FOON, a tasty little film outta Charlotte, NC that I am pretty sure was made with no one over the age of 18 and it fucking rips. Featuring Kinser Cathey, Clark Hodgin, Javaris Williams, Malik Jordan, Jason Zauss, John Pankus, Jay Pitser, and Jackson Davis. Enjoy. This is a playlist of each part, so please be patient with each one, if you even have the attention span anymore.
According to Chapel Hillian turned San Diegan Ricky Covach, much of this footy was meant for the sequel to the NC famous "Carolina Love" named "Thrills". Featuring virgin internet parts from Carolina staples Jed and Chad Shooter, Justin Brock, and Drew Hanner as the main focus with a healthy friends section including young Christian Yepez, Sturgill Horn, Ricky Covach, Travis Knapp-Prasek, Steve LaClair, Cameron Keene, and so many more. If you're as big a nerd as I am about the skateboarding that came before now (plus twinges of lying on the floor watching skate videos with my high school friends nostalgia), take a look. Thanks to Ricky for ripping the DVD for me and Chad and James for allowing me to upload this.
