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.
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!
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!
Everybody in the Carolinas (and potentially beyond) knows that Post22 was a frontrunner in the online skate video world. James Tupper was always a genius behind the camera and always made some of the raddest edits, not to mention being a huge part in one of NC's greatest treasures : "Carolina Love". Post22's "Film & Destroy" is no exception. Filmed by Jed Shooter and James Tupper, this one goes down in history as a radical portrayal of what makes skating in the South so great. Featuring : Cameron Keene, Jed Shooter, Coley Martin, Durand Beasley, Dan Murphy, and Alec Chambers. Enjoy.
Based in South Carolina, Dorian Warneck is a fantastic filmmaker but that's just our opinion man. Take a look for yourself and be reminded how good this short skate film is.
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.
