Transworld Outliers-3

We premiered TransWorld Skateboarding‘s 26th video, ‘Outliers’ at the Palm Theatre here in San Luis Obispo last night. It was a good turn out and we raffled away a pile of sweet TransWorld stuff. Before the TransWorld Outliers screening, we threw on a Jazztato teaser for the upcoming Jazzpush video which features a bunch of local rippers. Good edit Johnny Jazzpush! The premiere was a blast and as always, we were super stoked to see everyone that came out.

The TransWorld Outliers video—produced by Chris Thiessen—features Riley Hawk, Lee Yankou, Neen Williams, Marius Syvanen, Zered Bassett and Brad Cromer. This diverse array of styles with an equally diverse array of geographical backgrounds is the inspiration for the title, Outliers. The filming is top notch, the skateboarding is next level and the music is well synced. Another year down, another killer TransWorld video on the books. Good job, Chris!

Thanks again to everyone at TransWorld and the Palm Theatre (what up Geoff!). Big fistbump to all of our locals and crew. Check out photos from the premiere below. Go skate!

Matt Reason RIP

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Matt Reason earlier this week. For those of you who don’t know, Matt Reason was an undeniably talented skater in the mid 90’s who, along with Ricky Oyola, changed the perception of East Coast skateboarding and coverage. During an era of small wheels and low pop, Matt was riding 63mm wheels and innovating switch skating with style.

For the SW replay, I chose Matt’s Pro Files part from 411VM issue 12. Take note of the spots. It’s raw street skating at it’s finest. I could easily imagine this footage in a modern day Polar video. I hope anybody who watches this becomes inspired to pick up their board and explore their surroundings!

R.I.P. Matt Reason 1973–2014

SW Replays are classic parts hand-picked by Skate Warehouse employees. They could be new, old, dirty, bloody, gnarly, fuzzy, blurry, bonkers, sketchy, epic, infamous, overlooked or just plain local. It could be your sponsor me tape. It could be Nyjah’s Fade To Black. It could be old pros or new ams. It could be better… or worse then you ever imagined. Keep your eyes peeled for new featured parts from the SW crew. Go skate and bust a switch wallie for our fallen comrade Matt Reason. R.I.P.

Just in time for Halloween antics, Altamont Apparel is re-releasing the iconic “Horror Movie Tees” designed by FOS back in 2008. Inspired by classic horror film genres, each of these Altamont x FOS Horror Movie Tees represent a different era of early influence for FOS.

Altamont x Fos Horror Tees

The I Want To Eat Your Brain tee takes after old banned U.K. video nasties. The Heads On Sticks graphic comes from 1970s cannibal holocaust style films. The Worm Food shirt gets it’s styling from the bad puppets and gore of 1980s horror flicks. All three carry FOS’ distinct style of free-form drawing and confident line work.

As the founder of U.K. based Heroin Skateboards and a main contributor at Altamont Apparel, Mark Foster a.k.a. FOS is a man of much talent. Inspired by classic skateboard graphics, comic books, record covers and all things horror, FOS is renowned for his low-fi illustrations and in-your-face style. His distinct artwork has been featured in numerous magazines, music videos, galleries and throughout the streets of London, Paris, Berlin and Japan. The Altamont x FOS Horror Movie Tees are back in production and now is the time to snatch one up. We’re all dead meat… trick or treat!

Jim Greco has been dropping hammers for almost 20 years. From Birdhouse to Zero to Baker to Deathwish, Greco has managed to one-up himself in every part he’s put out, time and time again. Now in the year of the pro-turned-entrepreneur, he’s rising to a new challenge with his own company startup. Greco is dropping a new skate brand on the firing pin and you’re damn right it’s called Hammers.

The Hammers brand is and always will be 100% American-Made. It’s Greco’s philosophy that since Hammers is born of skateboarding and skateboarding was born in America, it’s only right to stay true to those origins. All of their decks are 100% North American hard rock maple and Greco is dedicated to not outsourcing production. This creates American jobs and better products. You gotta back that! Skate Warehouse is fortunate enough to be one of only 25 shops carrying the Hammers collection.

Jim Greco Drops Hammers!

Jim Greco Hammers Frontpage

In an interview with VICE, Greco explained the meaning of Hammers:

A hammer is just based on individuality, the pure moment of creation; it’s synonymous with creativity. Basically, it’s about overcoming difficult obstacles in your life. A “hammer” could be getting a good report card at school. It could be ollieing that gap you always wanted. It could be creating that awesome piece of art. It’s many things to many people, and it’s not dictated by another person’s opinion of what a “hammer” is. It’s just based on creating.

Jim Greco’s House Of Hammers

The first step Greco took towards this new venture was to establish House Of Hammers—his own indoor skate facility—out of which we’ve already seen some serious footage. The facility was channeled through the website (HouseOfHammers.com) and clips immediately started pouring out. With epic features like 15 Down 15, D.T.K.L.A.M.F. and All Killa No Filla being held down by the likes of himself, Neen Williams, Chris Joslin, Andrew Reynolds and already so many more, Greco’s house is truly one of Hammers.

Jeremy Leabres Thrasher Magazine Cover

Skateboarding has evolved to such an advanced level that it takes something really special to stand out these days. The trick selection, the spots, the style, the attitude, the exposure—all of these elements have to come together consistently to achieve greatness. That’s not to mention avoiding injury long enough to get it all on record. When Jeremy Leabres surprised us all in the beginning of Emerica‘s MADE Chapter 1 video last year, everyone glimpsed the formation of just such a greatness.

One year later, with a Thrasher Magazine cover under his belt, this prolific Emerica am and Toy Machine Bloodsucker has what it takes. Jeremy has all of that necessary criteria going for him and more. This dude straight up murders skateboarding. Enjoy the video and please try to keep your jaw off the floor. Now shut up bungholes and prepare yourselves!

Toy Machine and Thrasher Magazine Present:

The Re-Education Of Jeremy Leabres

Note for the skate nerds: none of this footage is in the video (Toy Machine Video #7, coming later). This footage will terminate life as you have come accustomed to it. From the moment you see it nothing will be the same. Like B.C. is before and A.D. is after, so it will be in the world of skateboarding. So let it be written; it shall be done. Blessed art thou who watches this video and is inspired to go forth into the world a new human. Cloaked in the splendid aftermath of Jeremy’s skating, adorned with the sticky emission from the computer pixels and resolute in the certainty of Toy Machine and the superiority of this addiction that is impossible to kick… Skateboarding. The habit that instead of breaking you down lifts you up and out of your shitty life and into a community of legends and ghosts and humans who enrich and enhance your existence. Welcome to your new life. Welcome to Toy Machine and The Re-Education of Jeremy Leabres. Sacrifice your boy and girlfriends to him. He will be gentle and graceful. I just hope you didn’t think it sucked.”

Stevie Williams Interview Portrait

Do you remember Stevie Williams’ Wheels Of Fortune from 411VM Issue 9 back in 1994? It’s hard to believe that was over 20 years ago! From Underworld Element’s Lil’ Stevie all the way to Asphalt Yacht Club‘s head honcho, the original Dirty Ghetto Kid has been stacking street cred for over two decades. In 2012, TransWorld Skateboarding named Stevie one of the “30 Most Influential Skateboarders of All Time”. Philadelphia’s own Stevie Williams is a living legend with many years of legacy left to go. He’s one of the chillest, most respected skateboarders on the planet. Philly, stand up!

We recently had the chance to take your questions directly from Instagram and put them to the man himself. Check out the Stevie Williams Interview below and watch for your ‘gram handle. If you see your question give us a shout out in the comments!

Stevie Williams Interview

Would you re-release your DC Shoe on Supra? – @SAYNO2RACHET

I don’t know. Maybe I just might leave it a classic. Just because it needs to just stay where it’s at in time.

Do you have a favorite skater on DGK? – @JAREDBALSLEY

Yeah, my favorite skater on DGK is Lenny Rivas. That’s my little bro.

Biggie or Tupac? – @NOAHSARKK94

Both. I listen to them at different times, different moods. Before it was one or the other but now they’re both classics. Classic emcees.

Why is AYC so dope? – @RICHHOMIEKIRK

AYC is dope because the fans make it dope. The kids that love it and support it, the haters that keep talkin’ about it, you know? They make it dope. AYC is dope because it’s a dope movement and it’s one hundred and Stevie Williams is definitely backing it.

How did you get Nyjah on AYC? – @_BRUHLIFE

Nyjah knows what time it is. He wanted to do something cool. I wanted to do something cool. And I think that he needed a clothing company that can identify how cool he really is. And I think he’s coming into that, you know? That’s my little homie, too.

What is your favorite part you have put out? – @WU_TANG_WARRIOR

My favorite part is the last part I just put out, in the DGK video Parental Advisory. It really meant a lot to me. It was a challenge that I was willing to take on. I traveled the world with my friends, my best friends, my brothers. I really shocked the industry on people not really thinking I could do another part or whatever.

Between Supra, AYC and DGK which team do you enjoy trips with the most? – @_TYLERARMSTRONG_

I mean, all three companies I love to go on trips with. It’s three different brands. Asphalt is one type of brand. DGK is another type of brand. Supra is another type of brand. I look forward to going on each trip with each brand because I know I can expect something different from everybody or each company. So, you know, from Lizard King to Riley and Nyjah to, you know, Lenny and Shmatty and Marcus and Jack. I think it’s definitely the three top—one of the three top brands of the industry. And I skate for them and I have a good time.

How did you choose the AYC team? – @SAMDEVINS

I chose the team wisely and wanted to make sure that it was original. It wasn’t an easy process but, you know, the guys that we got have been down since day one. And we got Nyjah Huston, ha!

Who was your first sponsor and who got you on the team? – @ALEXBERZIN123

Aight, so my first real sponsor was Underworld Element and I got on Underworld Element—and Underworld Element is Element today. Before Element it used to be called Underworld Element. Jeff Pang was a pro for Underworld Element back then. He came to Philly and I bugged the shit out of him (laughs). He was sending me boards for a while and then I met Harold (Hunter) and Pepe (Martinez) and Andy (Howell) and I got on the team. I’ll never forget that.

What’s your favorite childhood skate spot? – @SKATERKIID327
