Jeff Ament has used his fame and success to help build skateparks all over Montana and South Dakota, many on Native American reservations.
These guys are the low-key Melbourne photo bromance you never knew you always wanted.
"I love being on skates. I think everyone has an activity where they feel tranquil and at peace or whatever."
The absurdist artist collaborated with nonprofit Skateistan to sell his work in order to raise money for Africa's first skate school.
The non-profit wants to take a group of skaters from Germany to South Africa, delivering skateboards to the South African kids who have skateparks-a-plenty, but no money to buy boards.
Come see her work this Saturday night in Los Angeles.
How the Skateistan school uses skateboarding as a tool for empowerment in a country worn down by 30 years of conflict and dislocation.
Skaters had been building "Little Oasis Crazy Skate" for eight months before the Margate council destroyed it.
He's a gentle fellow, who doesn't eat meat, but loves going on adventures and staying out late. He skates with a straight-backed, no-fuss finesse, the way that everyone wants to skate these days.
Ed Templeton may be retired from skateboarding, but his photo game is still going strong. He talked to VICE about his upcoming book Wayward Cognitions, his company Toy Machine, and a possible upcoming, full-length skate video.
After last week's heavy episode, it's time to relax and watch part three, where we cover Kenny Anderson's rise from a reluctantly sponsored Vegas local to "your favorite skater's favorite skater."
In this part we talk about Keenan Milton, who was one of the best on the Chocolate team before his tragic death by drowning in 2001.
Chocolate has always been an elite brand, so we jumped at the opportunity to do a "20 Years of Chocolate" episode. It gave us a chance to tap a lot of skaters that have never been featured on the show before, and its an honor just to ride in Chocolate's w…
The old adage "skateboarding saved my life" rings especially true with former pro skater Jim Bates, who has dealt with clinical depression his entire life. Recently, Jim wrote and illustrated a children's book called The Boy Who Skated with Dragons…
New photo journal 'Diane' celebrates the best part of being a skater—partying with your mates.
We met up with French skater Oscar Candon recently before the Supra demo at Frontside skatepark in Hackney, London. We had some morning beers and a chat about nerves, French musicians, and the stupidity of those tiny skateboards.
Like human voices or a quality wok, Jim Greco seems to get better with age. But if he quits skating every day, his body's going to completely fall apart.
I met with the Canadian pro a couple of weeks ago, just before the Supra demo at the Frontside skate park, for a chat about some of that, the joys of touring, and how important it is to understand what the fuck is going on.
The year was 1993. I was barely 13, but I was already angsty, pissed, and horny as hell.
London's most exciting skater told me how he wound up naked in front of one of his idols.
Every tattoo from No Class Tattoo Parlor is free, provided you're at least halfway tanked when you start laying the ink on yourself. I that think explains why the place is starting to pick up some steam among the skating community.
For the record, I do not like white rappers. However, vert skating veteran Chris Gentry is an exception to the rule because he's never taken himself that serious. I caught up with Chris to discuss skate rappers, touring with Gator, his sexy ex-wife, and m…
At 29, Lizard King is still what your grandma sees when she thinks of a skateboarder: hand tattoos, wild eyes, and an impressive alcohol tolerance. We caught up with him in Bristol, UK, to find out if he's planning to change soon. (He isn't.)
As the saying goes: "Skateboarding is so hot right now," and with its huge global popularity more and more outsider companies are trying to target that youth demographic.
