Here is another great New York Clip brought to you by you know who. This one, as well as all the others, has a theme but isn't as drastic as the past clips (skating in subways or grinding and riding up cars). Maybe Colin couldn't think of anything radical enough for people to skate and was getting scared of playing slapsies with The Man. Or maybe he got tired of all the death threats sent to him from the deranged Youtube junkies from previous clips. Or maybe he's got another ingenious idea that he'll marvel us with very soon. Who knows? We just enjoy the clips whether they're conventional or not!

This video of Ben Gore was admittedly stolen from Colin Read's facebook by us today. I feel it's suitable to follow up with the Brad Cromer post we put up a few days ago since they're both from the same area. Ben Gore is another guy I use to watch growing up as well, and still to this day in fact. He's just really good and there's not much else to say so let this edit do the talking.

Following up on the "ONE IN A MILLION FAIL" post a couple weeks back, I stand corrected, although not completely. They did come out with the first episode of last years OIAM which premiered this morning, but as you can see at least in this episode, it looks like an intro for "The Real World". Let's just hope that's the last of it and the following ones are packed with good skating and no drama. ALL HAIL CARDIEL!

With the growing mass amount of talented skateboarders today, there are only a few originals that stand out from the "chill steeze" impersonators, Brad Cromer has always been one of them. Brad has been killing it for years here in FL and has always been one I've looked up to growing up skating, which I think is safe to say the same for many of you. His raw yet smooth style has the ability to make you immediately stop what you're doing and go cruize around, like this video for instance. No he's not a Crewman, but it is necessary to acknowledge a FL head who's influenced many from our generation and those to come.

In a couple of weeks I'll (Steve Spence) be getting a second ACL surgery which might mean lesser posts or maybe none at all for a few weeks. I'll do my best in keeping you entertained but I'll be lying in bed tripping balls for quite some time so it might be unmanageable. However, our first line of cruizer boards are in the making and will be done by the end of February/beginning of March, so get ready to cruize the streets! For the time being, here's my favorite Jimmy part from Westside Skateshop's "The Good Life".

As many of you Gainesvillans or wayfarers know, there has yet to be a decent skateshop here in the city. Holy Crail is an up-in-coming strictly skateboard shop that hopefully will be open soon. This was the first event that took place last season inside The Imaginarium, a junkyard in the middle of the ghetto, that benefitted the shop's construction. Featuring Crewmen Matt Town, Chuey Stirling, Jimmy Lannon, Jimmy Mastrocolo, Dante Debose, Ryan Barlow and other Florida scum. Filmed and edited by Mike Atwood. 

Don't miss the next benefit event for Holy Crail Saturday, January 28th! Click on the image below for more details.

Be sure to check back for the next Cruizees/Speedball party coming in late February!

For those of you who keep up with SLAP Magazine's OIAM every year, you're wondering or already know why there have yet to be any episodes or winners announced. Well we can all thank Colin for that, for real. Apparently the producer/director/whoever it was in charge figured he was going to make this past OIAM even more so a reality show than last years. Of course, the finalists didn't give a shit about that and just wanted to skate. So Colin took it upon himself to save them, and everyone else awaiting the episodes, and brought them around the city strictly to skate and have fun (what they were there for in the first place). The guy in charge lost his mind, flipped out and no one is sure if OIAM's footage will ever be used. Hopefully that guy gets fired and Colin will be in charge this year. Anyhow, while up in New York I met Matt Militano, one of the finalist, and I gotta say he's one of the coolest dudes I've met in awhile. He was immediately down for Cruizees and bought a shirt within the first 5 min of being introduced and got some really good footage with it on. This is Matt's video that qualified him to be a finalist, and if you think this footage is good wait until you see his full part in Mandible Claw 3!

By the way, jackets are almost sold out so get them while you can! CLICK!!

Found this not so cool edit on the Thrasher site featuring Clive Dixon and a couple other Florida homies.

Not for the reason of having the same first name as us, Steve Nesser has always been one of our favorite skaters. He seems to always be under the radar and just when you wondered what happened to him, he comes out with a new jammin' part. With no discretion at all, his tricks can relate to most, which is more enjoyable to watch in our eyes. Great style, good tricks, and always a pumping song to flow with every edit. Steve's the man!

This is a long awaited edit that I set aside for no excuse. I finally put it together so you and all your friends realize you missed out on the best party of 2011. There's plenty of story behind the video which makes it even more meaningful to the people who were there to see it first hand. So come out next time and be a part of the carnage!

If you stay connected with us as often as we do with Magenta Skateboards, then not much is needed to be said - they do it right! Their skating, filming, editing, spot selection, and artwork all bring a breath of fresh air to the endless stench of replication we can barely get away from in modern skateboarding. 
Support Magenta!

Some great things are underway as we speak, and hopefully sooner than later they will be up for show. As for now Colin just put out a sick new New York Clip for your viewing pleasure. Keep them coming Colin!
