Eisei Sugimoto & Leo Graceffo // YGT Presents: VICtorious

No Comments »

 The next part from YGT Presents: VICtorious we have for you features Leo Graceffo & Eisei "Ace" Sugimoto. 
   While Eisei was living in Canada, he came to Vic for a month during the Summer of 2012 to skate and kick it with homies. He filmed the vast majority of his footage for this part in that time, as well as having 5 published photos shot during that month. Who knows what spots in Victoria he would've shut down had he been here longer.
   In between the filming and editing, Leo put down a good mix of bangers and tech moves. With 3 trick combos mid-line and a damn good Fakie Tre, he certainly holds it down in front of the lens and behind the camera. Seeing as they're both 133 family and good homies, it made sense to pair up Leo & Ace for the 9th section in VICtorious. The full video will be live here on May 1st, with photos extras over at www.concreteskateboarding.com.

Call Me Sal

   The "Skating With Satan" barrier at ghetto spot has seen a fair amount of action since being built last year. Mat Howell has some transition wizardry skills, so it came as no surprised when he casually did this Sal Flip to Tail in just a few short tries.

Shay Sandiford // YGT Presents: VICtorious

Shay Sandiford is definitely on the come up and we're stoked too see companies like LRG, Darkstar, Fallen, Bones, Indy to name a few starting to recognizing it. Since Shay lives in Courtenay it made filming a bit more difficult, luckily he was super motivated and always ended up rolling away from what he was trying. Coming through with a good variety of technical wizardry and style its pretty safe to say Shay Sandiford's got that! Be on the lookout for the full video dropping right here as well as a bunch of unseen photo's from Luke that will be showing exclusively on Concrete Skateboarding May 1st.

Disconnecting the Dots

No Comments »

   There were a few photos from our "Dude Where's My Board?" entry into King Shit x Cons Connect the Dots contest in 2013 that didn't make it into the pages of KS which deserve to see the light of day. A lot of good times were had over the course of filming for the project, and although we didn't take home any paper, I'm very happy with how the video and article turned out. Our objective was to get as many tricks as possible and have a wicked time while doing so, and I'd say we definitely succeeded at doing just that. Thanks to the skaters and homies that made it possible, and King Shit/Cons for putting on the contest!

   We are very stoked to bring you guys the first of 3 parts we will be posting before releasing the full video here on May 1st. For those of you that can't wait till then or just enjoy a good ol' hard copy, DVD's are available at Sitka, Lyrics and Hto in Victoria, Island Riders in Nanaimo, Onethirtythree in Courtenay and Boardwalk in Campbell River for 10 bucks.
Stacking clips with Corey is always a good time. His laid back demeanor and precise board control makes him a pleasure to film with. Besides having webbed toes which some would argue gives him manual super powers, Corey is also is really good at shotgunning beers; combine the two and throw in a narrow curvy manual pad and great things will happen. Confused? I'd suggest hitting play!

Forgotten Summer Memories

No Comments »

    I had almost forgotten about these photos I shot of Cheyenne Hehr while he was filming for Road to Remulak two Summers ago. Although the rail itself is nice, the run is littered with cracks and potholes that require a sign or two to make it to the rail. After warming up with a Frontboard and Frontboard to Fakie, Cheyenne started jumping into Fs Feeble and rode away in under 10 tries.

   Huge thank you's going out to those who came and shared the premiere with us, our sponsors (Lyrics Skateshop and Studio, HtO, Sitka, Instrumental Skateboards, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Who Da Hell), everyone who has lent a helping hand at one point or another, all the filmers who contributed clips, and last but certainly not least, the skaters who put their bodies on the line for the video, without you there would be no VICtorious.
We will have more on VICtorious in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

VICtorious B-Sides/Damn the Man!

No Comments »

   Through all the tribulations and bending over backwards trying to make shit happen, The Man has made it extremely difficult for us to attain a liquor license for the premiere this Saturday. It brings us disappointment that we will be unable to have beer at the event, so get your drink on beforehand and please don't bring any alcohol with you. In lieu of the events, we will have more stuff and things to give away after the film so make sure to stick around.

   We had more footage than we could have imagined to sift through for VICtorious, so as expected there were a handful of clips left on the cutting room floor; here's a few of them.

The Goose

No Comments »

   Both of the photos below were shot along the Galloping Goose in Victoria.
  Dan Lintaman brought forth the idea for his photo, and it turned out better than I had imagined. A powerslide photo is hard to come by, and I'm thankful for having the opportunity to shoot the photo. To make it from top to bottom of this windy hill is a trick in itself; adding a stylish Bs Powerslide into the mix just sweetens the deal.

This photo of Isaac Walker was one day that we were headed street skating in the Mayfair area. I had wanted to shoot a pushing photo with a slowed shutter for some time, so I strapped my camera to my hand and shot off some photos while I rode my bike and Isaac chased behind. I almost slammed a couple times trying to get the photo, although I managed to get one I was happy with before my camera took a tumble.
