    not to knock our national anthem, but i sorta wish we had a better song to sing on occasions like this. actually scratch that, not “better”, but maybe less formal, more upbeat. is that unpatriotic? ah well. looks wicked though. oh to be back in the homeland now!

    Canada made a great national anthem choice, the US’s national anthem sadly does not lend itself to happy sing-a-longs 🙁 jealous

  • Vancouver in a week, I can’t wait!

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).

Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
