AN INTERVIEW WITH SKATEBOARDING’S GAYEST PHOTOGRAPHER, SAM MCGUIRE
Is skateboarding really as homophobic as people think it is?
WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE REMIXER IN SKATEBOARDING?
Should raw skate footage be made available to editors all over the world after a new part is released?
SKATEBOARDING & WRITING: NOT SO DIFFERENT AFTER ALL?
The writer’s struggle is very much the skateboarder’s struggle, the skateboarder’s joy is very similar to the writer’s joy.
PRETEND WE HAVEN’T GROWN
"This is the secret treasure hidden inside of our pursuit of skateboarding. The activity is so terrible for us, and cares about us so little, that we can’t possibly do it without loving it. Which means that even the ugliest and biggest assholes in our midst are capable of love."
WHAT IF SKATEBOARDING LOOKED LIKE THE VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY?
Both started as illegitimate offshoots – skateboarding from surfing, video games from scientific computer laboratories – and found their own footing through periods of rapid refinement driven by core practitioners.
WILL SKATEBOARDERS EVER BE TRADED LIKE IN OTHER SPORTS?
Skateboarding might be on television and pretty much everywhere, but it’s not the NBA, NFL, or even the PGA.... yet.
WHY ARE PEOPLE RIDING ODD SHAPED BOARDS AGAIN?
"Not only is this functional and it looks good and you look down and feel cool, it’s a statement saying that I reject everything you guys are about"
WAS NYJAH HUSTON’S NEW PART “TOO GOOD?”
Nyjah wins skateboarding, but not my heart.
THE PUSH FOR SKATEBOARDING & THE OLYMPICS CONTINUES
While the discussion of skateboarding’s inclusion into the Olympics has been going on for a long time, that doesn’t mean everyday skaters should not be aware or have a voice in how our activity is being defined and marketed.
