SF Giants' World Series Trophy & DLX
    Wednesday, 04 March 2015 /// Written by Van Edwards

I'm not sure how many people are lucky enough to have The San Francisco Giants 3 World Series trophies put on display at their work for the company's employees to enjoy during their lunch break, but that's what happened the other day at Deluxe. So great.

90s Skateboarding in San Francisco Footage
    Wednesday, 25 February 2015 /// Written by Trippe

I've been going through some old footage I, John Trippe, filmed in the late 90s/early 2000s here in San Francisco and will be releasing it a bunch of it in the coming weeks.

Footage features all kinds of people from Cairo Foster, Kenny Reed, Ocean Howell, Rob Welsh, and a slew of other pros you will probably recognize from old skate videos like 411, Thrasher and others including a load of footage that didn't make it anywhere... Below is a little taste of what's to come.


 

Soma Skate Plaza
    Friday, 16 May 2014 /// Written by Trippe

SAN FRANCISCO --- We've been street skating in San Francisco since the early 90s- dodging police and getting kicked out of spots waiting for the city to build a nice skatepark. They did build 2 great parks, Crocker and Potrero, but those parks cater to transition skaters but nothing for us street skaters... till now.

San Francisco is set to open the amazing looking little Soma Skate Plaza which looks a bit cramped, but who's complaining since it's a few blocks from FFDG and Fecal Face.

Soma Skate Park in SF is soon to open.

We peeked in on Monday night, and it looks like they're just about finished. Looks super fun good times. --> Hey, did you know Tony Hawk donated 10K for it?

 

Gator Skater +video
    Friday, 25 April 2014 /// Written by Trippe

Nate Milton emailed over this great short Gator Skater which is a follow-up to his Dog Skateboard he emailed to us back in 2011... Any relation to this Gator Skater?

Nate does wonderful shorts. We normally don't post advertisements, but his short Sad Godzilla for Emergen-C makes us smile (see below).

 

Flavio Samelo's Downtown Sao Paulo Murals

A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant
    Thursday, 06 March 2014 /// Written by Trippe

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the city’s shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesn’t end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.

Paradise +video
    Wednesday, 26 February 2014 /// Written by Trippe

Ok, this video put together by Dave Todon and friends for a King Shit Magazine contest made our day as we work away on this rainy SF afternoon.

My name is Dave Todon, I'm a long time FF regular from Toronto.  I'm writing in regards to a video and a series of photos a few friends and myself put together for a skate flick contest this past summer (King Shit Magazine, Connect The Dots contest).  I thought you guys over at FF may find it fun.  You can check the vid here and the photos here

 

Tony Hawk Going Back to the 80s
    Friday, 07 February 2014 /// Written by Trippe

Mickeydlx's Instgram this morning was perfect because as I lay awake last night at 3am, I couldn't stop thinking about handplants on vert.

Tony Hawk takes it back for an all 80's inspired video clip for his new Limited Edition Krooked Guest deck featuring artwork by Mark Gonzales. -Krooked Skateboards

 

A Whole Lotta Wall Work by Knarf, Mafia, and Fresh Max
    Thursday, 30 January 2014 /// Written by Trippe

VIENNA, AUSTRIA --- Over the last 3 months Knarf, Mafia, and Fresh Max went to town on this 3500 square meter wall complex near Vienna. Impressive indeed (PHOTOS).

We wanna skate that little indoor park. Found some footage online of some dudes skating (not too impressively, we might add- no offense. My skills are pretty rusty these days).

Free and Easy | Michael Leon
    Friday, 17 January 2014 /// Written by Trippe

Here's a little short I (John Trippe) did on artist/ designer Michael Leon back in 2003 for Element skateboards. Michael Leon at the time did Commonwealth Stacks clothing and designed a set of boards for Element. He previously was a designer at Girl Skateboards.

 

Gappin' Love
    Tuesday, 07 January 2014 /// Written by Trippe

Ok, the gap at Love Park in Philly is huge. If you don't skate, know that the gap is a monster and Love Park has been a very notable skate spot for the last 15 years or more... In any case, this clip of recent Skater of the Year Ishod Wair struck a chord with me because I used to film skateboarding years back, and even though skate parts flow smoothly together, gathering the footage takes a lot of time... and just like it did with Ishod here, it can be very much worth it. GNAR.

Save South Bank (+london)
    Thursday, 12 September 2013 /// Written by Trippe

There's an interesting urban development battle taking place in South Bank London as of late between developers of the Southbank Centre and the skaters who have used the space for over 35 years. The developers not only want the skaters to move, but they are willing to build the skaters "a better" skate spot a short 120 meters down the road. The skaters don't want to leave and thus a PR battle ensues.

Proposals for the centre's £120m Festival Wing complex will see the concrete undercroft beneath the Queen Elizabeth Hall, which has been a mecca for skaters since the 1970s, transformed into restaurants and shops. It is a move that sparked a vociferous campaign to protect the site for skating and BMXing, generating a 50,000-signature petition in July that has delayed the planning application. ~read on.

Developers want the skaters to move on.

And the skaters don't wanna leave.

18 Years of Antihero
    Tuesday, 13 August 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

The Eleanor Harwood gallery opened its doors last Saturday night for Anti-Art, a show of Anti Hero skateboard decks made by Dennis McNett.

The show commemorated the 18th birthday of Anti Hero Skateboards, and I can't quite believe they're only now legal. McNett is one of my personal favorite artists and it was great to see the woodblock, the print, and the deck all displayed together. It really brought the creation of the boards to life, and the energy imbued in the woodblock is unmistakable in the completed deck. I got there just as it opened, and the prints were already selling like hot-cakes, and I'm sure it only accelerated through the night. It was awesome to see it all together, and I hope it got more rowdy as the beers were drunk and the sun went down. Happy birthday, Anti Hero!

Fabiano Rodrigues Self Portraits
    Wednesday, 31 July 2013 /// Written by Trippe

When we were down in Sao Paulo, Brazil a couple years back (photos), we had the pleasure of meeting ex-professional skater/ photographer Fabiano Rodrigues who's represented by the fine folks at LOGO gallery there in Sau Paulo.

Fabiano Rodrigues takes these great self portraits using a Hasselblad camera and a remote control while skating in his newest series... skating inside/ outside museums and around Sao Paulo... These photographs are always one off prints, exploring the history and repertoire of skateboarding movements, particularly its relationship with the city, its architecture and urban furniture. In his choices of locations, there is a special interest for architectural landmarks, such as buildings designed by the renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
