Skate and Create

Transworld’s Skate and Create 2010 videos are now online and one entry instantly put a smile on my face. In an age of HD this, and megapixel that, Etnies took it back to 1995! This is proof that all you need is a Hi8 camera, baggy jeans, and people who are down to have some fun!

Watch the video below! Warning: If you skated in the 90’s this just might bring a tear to your eye! If anyone needs me I’ll be waxing the curb outside my house.


In the end, it was Lakai’s video that took home the gold.

Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored.
