Carved- A Series of Ill Skate Films

26 01 2010

 I had been meaning to post some of these skate films for quite some time. Carved is a series of longboard and shortboard music videos (created by Sergi Ferrer) that portrays the unique aesthetic of the New York City Push Culture. The series is now  up to forty videos, all with eclectic funky soundtracks, and features some of the best skaters in NYC. Here are just two of my favorites.

Gettin Busy in Brizzy

24 01 2010

I spent a few days in Brisbane, Australia, and got to do some serious skating. There is substantial terrain, with a good variety of hills, an assload of bridges, nice bike paths along the river, and even a few nice skate parks. I bombed Logan Road and then cruised around town until I met  a local longboarder who showed me a few nice spots in the West End. I then went to see Avataar in 3D, which was pretty entertaining, despite the hype. I also stumbled upon some very nice artwork and grafitti. Heading towards the beach and hope to meet up with a crew on the Gold Coast for a rip. Stay warm NYC.

NYC Santa Skate 2009

19 01 2010


Unfortunatly I was unable to attend this years Santa Skate through the mean streets of NYC. I spent my Christmas with my legs danging over the edge of Minyon Falls (Nightcap National Park, Australia) relaxing with a fat spliff of bushbud. Sure, it was amazing, but I really wanted to take my gorilla suit and white beard out and join the NYC crew as they skated in full Santa regalia.  Enjoy the video footage and prepare for next years merrymaking, courtesy of Unlce Funky’s Longboards.

Brooklyn Australia?

4 01 2010


While wandering throiugh the Outback, I came across this sign, and was admittedly confused. So i headed to the right and found myself at a lakeside village called Brooklyn, oddly devoid of bearded hesidics and converse clad hipsters. Also, there were no Bustin longboard shops, obnoxiously loud reggae music or hot Polish chicks, so I got the hell out of there as quickly as possible and continued North, into the jungle. Meanwhile, back home in snowy NYC, a  longboarding video caught my attention.

More great footage from the nicest skate documentary team in New york City, Fabrika Production out of Astoria Queens. This years race was epic, and I cannot wait for next year. Anyone not from NYC, make plans now to come through the city next october and join in the mnayhem.
