Posting holiday

Happy festivus y’all… thanks for all the support in 2008. If you wanna catch our first set of 09 it’s happening one hour in at highlife matakana in a barn.

As most of you know our whole skate ramp/outdoor shit got stomped down by the weather, but the night still turned out super dope… the club packing out on the rainiest tuesday night in a long time was touching. We have the foundations of a solid community, and we have all of you to thank.

Merry Xmas, Happy new year, see you in the 09, we have some real surprises in store.

Can’t Be Stopped

DLT feat. Rascalz – ‘Can’t Be Stopped’, Altruism (2000)
BMG Music/Rascalz Music (SOCAN) 

DLT is the Grand Wizard Theodore of NZ.

The idea for this video and track came to him while touring Christchurch in the late-90s. The council had a blanket ban on skateboarding in the city centre and – despite the fact the city let shops in the area sell them – would confiscate your board on sight. DLT got pissed when he saw kids having to hide their decks or run away when cops would show up to harass them.

Does anyone know if Christchurch still has that bylaw? Fuck that bylaw.

Check the vid for 1st generation After Effects tricks and Rua Kenana at 2’54”

After the jump – DLT and Sir-Vere on ‘Wrekognize’ circa 1997.

Benjamin Marra – Totally Brutal



Benjamin Marra is totally fucking brutal.

There’s not a lot of personal info about him on the net, but you know you know this dude:

  • He had drawings of Conan and Rat Fink on his schoolbooks instead of Sonic The Hedgehog duraseal.
  • He carved ‘FUCK DIEING’ [sic] into his grip tape.
  • He knew where a waterlogged copy of ‘Fiesta’ was hidden in the bushes by school.

Check his website here and his illustration blog here
