bones brigade: an autobiography - trailer.

it's not a death metal band, an extreme diet club or historic dominoes association—the bones brigade was a talented gang of teenage outcasts. unmotivated by fame or popularity, they completely dedicated their lives to a disrespected art form. for most of the 1980s, this misfit crew headed by a 1970s ex-skateboard champion blasted the industry with a mixture of art and raw talent becoming the most popular skateboarding team in history. the core unit of the bones brigade built an empire that covered the world. they dominated contests, made hundreds of thousands of dollars, created the modern skateboard video, reinvented endemic advertising, pushed skate progression into a new era, and set the stage for a totally new form of skating called street style. there's nothing comparable in today's skateboarding.

joey brezinski repeats red bull manny mania title.

congratulations joey brezinski for coming tops in the red bull manny mania contest. big ups!

entering its 6th year, red bull manny mania has grown into one of the biggest global contests while still balancing a relaxed vibe as it seeks to award the highest level of technical trickery on two wheels. based on the simple balancing trick of the manual, red bull manny mania awards the skill and creativity as skaters try to link their best combinations together.

in the u.s. nine regional qualifiers will be held from boston to sacramento. we'll be sending the best to camp woodward in pennsylvania on july 21st to compete in the u.s. national final. only one skater will move on to represent the u.s. in the red bull manny mania world final on august 18th in new york city, carrying the hopes of the u.s. on the back of their board. red bull manny mania pro will take place on sunday, august 19th in new york city.

casper brooker's part in the city of rats dvd.

here's a short flick of casper brooker from the city of rats' dvd. chekkit, yo!

emerica, heroin and stella supply rider casper brooker makes his video debut in slam city's first ever film city of rats.

"at a point in time where a large section of skateboarders consider social networking props to constitute skateboard culture, it is extremely refreshing to see members of the younger generation still out pounding the streets like those who came before them. don't be one of those bellends who only watches skate videos after they've been cut up into bite-sized sections on some facebook hero's page: support real skateboard culture with your money, not just your 'liking' finger. city of rats is more than worth the measly tenner they're asking for it. goon support should be mandatory." - ben powell, sidewalk magazine.

running at 57 minutes, city of rats has 14 sections and features the entire slam team alongside the shop staff, london locals and vargrants.
