the image above was some shit i did back in '07. just sharing it here in ironxhanger. stop skate harassment! period!

"to protect and serve to dictate and abuse, you make me hate you. you created me with your superior attitude. and you expect me to respect you? and i wouldn’t care if you died, right before my eyes. i feel no sympathy, watching your demise. and to side with you is like siding with the iron fist, and to support you, is like supporting a rapist. and i wouldn’t do that. you made me what i am, you made me hate you. that’s why it makes me smile when someone kills a pig or two."
- "conditioned" by chokehold.

indonesi’am - winner, best international 2009.

directed by sébastien abes (france)

this film captured so much of what we were hoping for in the international category: a foreign location, filmmakers and skateboarders from outside the united states, and a story to be told with good skateboarding in it.

we’ve decided to make the entire film available for you here on the site if you weren’t able to see it on the big screen at the festival.

synopsis: six french skateboarders explore the country of indonesia, it’s culture, and it’s skate spots in a documentary like fashion.

taken from the skateboard film festival.

i'm sorry that i have not been updating ironxhanger for quite some time now. i've been rather busy with my other obligations and also partly lazy to work on this blog. besides, there wasn't much news nor info for me to post up on here. i'll be sure to be back on my feet and not to slack in the future. and also there is a stack of skateboarding magazines yet to be reviewed and to be honest, i'm not in the mood to write reviews for them as we speak, but eventually they'll get done of course.

i would also like to thank all those who've been supporting ironxhanger by continuously checking out the blog and also thanks a lot to those who have been emailing me to enquire about ironxhanger's upcoming skate decks and t shirts. your emails always make my day and motivate me to keep working harder for ironxhanger, much appreciated. i am just as excited as you folks are.

below is a full length video by transworld skateboarding call "right foot forward". some of you may have already watched it, but those who have not, check it out. it's one of the best full length street skateboarding videos that came out in a long time in my opinion, besides nike sb "debacle" and adidas skateboarding "diagonal", but to hell with those major sporting goods brands trying to cash in on the skateboarding culture, tho' i have to honestly admit that the cinematography and editing for those two videos mentioned were bloody impressive.

'nuff about that. just watch the video below and enjoy, a'ight? it also has a great soundtrack too!

all a-bored!

ironxhanger ©photo: pinkviolence

that li'l green guy on top there is lil franky from heroes and heartbreakers by ryan bubnis for kidrobot, on top of a tiny tech deck.

how tiny is the deck you ask? it's an exclusive 57mm toy machine tech deck which was given to me by a good friend, nine years ago as a birthday gift.
it's half the size of the regular ones and it's been unsealed and resealed from it's packaging a couple of times for spontaneous photo shoots with my tiny vinyl friends.

i can post pictures of the teck deck upon request.

i will also be working on some tech decks and vinyl figurines for ironxhanger's upcoming art projects, so do keep a look out for that!

bueno - wizards of radical.

bueno is a defunct d.i.y skateboard company started by a prolific artist, michael sieben from austin, texas. below is a promo video showcasing their ex-team members. some of them moved on to sieben's new company, roger. this is one of my all time favourite promo video. too bad they didn't live long enough to make a full length video. rest in peace bueno, your boards will always be hanging on the walls of my apartment.

skateboarding related book synopsises.

disposable : a history of skateboard art by sean cliver
this book shironxhanger ©owcases over a thousand skateboard art graphics from the last thirty years. it contains recollection and stories from notable skateboarders such as jim phillips, lance mountain, pushead, ed templeton, jason jessee, steve caballero, jason lee, tony hawk, steve rocco, natas kaupas, todd francis, mike vallely, jeff grosso, craig stecyk iii, jeremy klein, bam margera, tommy guerrero, mike mcgill, thomas campbell, rodney mullen, rob roskopp, christian hosoi, steve alba and many others, providing a fascinating account of art in the skateboard subculture.

skateboard art of jim phillips
this retrironxhanger ©ospective on jim's skateboard art bombards the reader with colourful skateboard decks, logos, ad art, ad layouts, photos and stickers to illustrate the history of skateboarding from the urethane revolution up to the present. you are invited for aride, an inside view of phillips studio, to observe the wacky world of his crazed studio artists, and examine their graphic assignments.

the story traces the roots of skateboarding with more than half-century of phillip's involvement. it provides insight into the creative evolution of the sport and the worldwide interest and influences that has occurred from this california artist.

skate and destroy : the first 25 years of thrasher magazine

ironxhanger ©in january of 1981, a group of skateboarders in san francisco put together the first issue of thrasher magazine. today, thrasher is bigger and better than ever - it's name is synonymous with both skateboarding roots and constant evolution, international corporate bigwigs try to buy into thrasher's credibility, while kids tattoo the magazine's mantra, skate and destroy, into their skin.

skate and destroy
is more than just 288-page retrospective. the magazine's staff - past and present - left no ramp unturned or old concrete park unearthed in seeking out the lost photos, the covers that never were, untold stories of secret skate missions, and accounts from skateboarding's top riders of what thrasher has meant to them. like those tattoos carved into the arms of skaters worldwide, thrasher is forever.

thrasher epic spots : the places you must skate before you die
ironxhanger ©this photo book showcases the world's best, biggest, and gnarliest skate spots, and describes why each one made this book's list. some spots are just around the corner, some spots are around the planet. you have to check this book out for yourself to enjoy the ride.
