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.
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 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.
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 :
I met Ethan in 2008 or 2009 through a mutual friend in Boone but I had seen his photos somewhere before we met. Aspiring to shoot many dope photos it was really nice to meet a guy equally as inspired behind the lens. So here's some photos from my bro and stand-up guy, Ethan Messina :
