SONIC GENERATIONS OF SKATE CONTEST

SONIC GENERATIONS OF SKATE CONTEST
VENICE BEACH, CA
PHOTOS BY DAN LEVY
OCTOBER 22, 2011

For the 20 year anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog game from Sega, ASA entertainment teamed up with the makers of Sonic and Sega to put on a vert contest in Venice Beach, CA. The concept was to bring together skateboarders from three different age ranges to compete in Sonic Generations of Skate.

CONTEST RESULTS:

First Place: Tony Hawk (first generation), Andy Macdonald (second generation), Mitchie Brusco (third generation)

Second Place: Kevin Staab (first generation), Sandro Dias (second generation), Paul-Luc Ronchetti (third generation)

Third Place: Steve Caballero (first generation), Pierre Luc Gagnon (second generation), Elliot Sloan (third generation)

Fourth Place: Sergie Ventura (first generation), Lincoln Ueda (second generation), Adam Taylor (third generation)

The disciplines by which the teams would be judged included High Air, Best Trick, Individual, and Doubles.  The doubles ended up turning into triples a few times and it was epic.

There were a ton of highlights throughout the day including Sandro Dias landing the first 900 in Venice Beach History.  It was a bit surreal to see this level of skateboarding just paces away from where skateboarding cut its teeth on the unforgiving proving grounds of the now defunct concrete stage known simply as The Pit.

Speaking only in terms of skateboarding, the historical merit was undeniable, and as far as disciplines go this group of skaters are the top elite of modern-day vert skating. While the vert session was going off, the session in the pool at the Venice Skatepark adjacent was heated as well.

This was not a contest with a huge prize purse, yet it didn’t stop the skaters from pushing their own limits. Mitchie Brusco landed his first ever kickflip varial 540 during the best trick contest and everyone went nuts. Elliot Sloan added to the madness with a 720 tailgrab.  Sergie Ventura threw up a 50/50 body varial to switch 50/50 to fakie.  Tony Hawk pleased the crowd with his signature ollie 540 and a kickflip McTwist.  During the doubles/triples section Mitchie, Tony and Andy went for synchronized 720’s and almost pulled it.

It was another great day in Venice Beach skateboarding history. It’s kind of crazy to think that Sonic the Hedgehog by Sega is 20 years old and is still as exciting to kids today as it was for us kids 20 years ago. Props to ASA and Sega for throwing a great event. For more information on Sonic Generations of Skate visit www.sega.com/sonicskate.

Don Letts’ Out of Print Landmark Punk Documentary
To Be Reissued On DVD
January 11, 2011 via Shout! Factory

The 2-Disc Set Features Two Hours of Bonus Materials

Los Angeles, CA – In the mid-1970s, a revolution was ignited on the streets of New York and London. Almost overnight, punk shattered the status quo and continued to impact all future generations of youth culture. On January 11, 2010, Shout! Factory will release the long out-of-print documentary PUNK: Attitude.

Directed by Don Letts, the film and its extensive bonus features, chronicle the origin of punk music and its socio-cultural and musical impact through interviews with key figures such as Henry Rollins, Thurston Moore, Jello Biafra, Chrissie Hynde and more. A must-have for fans of punk music, documentary aficionados and DVD collectors, the two-disc set of PUNK: Attitude is priced for everyone to own at $19.93.

With a cast of historic and modern figures in popular culture, the documentary ventures beyond the hype and explores the way punk music redefined popular music and fashion while legitimizing an independent, do-it-yourself attitude that inspired an entire generation of musicians, filmmakers, poets, photographers, fashion designers and graphic artists.

“With hindsight we are able to recognize it as part of an ongoing movement of counterculture,” says filmmaker Don Letts adding, “It is in that spirit that I made this film, not as a nostalgic look back, but rather a way to move forward. After all, if it happened before, it can happen again.”

PUNK: Attitude was officially released April 25, 2005 at the Tribeca Film Festival and later aired to critical acclaim on IFC. The DVD-set has long been out of print.

THE BONES BRIGADE DOCUMENTARY

Stacy, Rodney, CAB, Tony, MIke, Lance and Tommy will be working on a Bones Brigade Documentary starting in February 2011.

On Monday, November 29th at Los Angeles International Airport, seven individuals that have had an extreme influence on skateboarding sat down to discuss work on a documentary of their experience. They met at the Encounter restaurant in the middle of the airport to begin work on this monumental film.

Stacy wrote, “Those skaters known as the Bones Brigade are now old enough to take a look back.  At a time in the 80’s when many people were mourning the second death of skateboarding, the Bones Brigade through passion, drive, creativity and a surprising sense of teamwork redefined the sport for their time and the future”.

Documentary filmmaker, Stacy Peralta in a new film with Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, Rodney Mullen, Tommy Guerrero and others will investigate the history, the team and the men to determine what is the legacy of the Bones Brigade. “Five years ago the guys got together and told me they wanted to do this. They believed they had a significant story others would want to know about.  So now we’re going to see.”

Simultaneously, a Powell-Peralta coffee table book is in the works. It will include the Bones Brigade, but also other things you knew and didn’t know about Powell-Peralta.

BILLABONG COLLABORATES WITH THE HOUSE OF MARLEY

The Billabong X Bob Marley Collection

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 30 November, 2010 : – – Hossegor — Billabong is proud to announce The Billabong x Bob Marley Collection, a collaboration with the House of Marley. Why did we collaborate with the House of Marley? Because we believe in Bob Marley’s vision of “one world, one love.”

Bob Marley is a musical prophet, whose words and vision forever changed the world. His image evokes a rich legacy and emotional connection that transcend generation, ethnicity, gender and geopgraphy. His voice touches, inpsires and moves. He is a phenomenon merging myth, man, musical genius, social awareness, and cultural relevance into a way of life embraced universally.

Billabong is committed to the development of earth-friendly, innovative products that adhere to the Marley family’s core values: Equality, authenticity, and sustainability. Or as Bob might put it: “Make way for the positive day.”

Consisting of boardshorts, tee shirts, tank tops, and selected accessories, the line reflects the energy, passion and fun that infused Marley’s life. The Billabong x Bob Marley Collection is using premium recycled and organic materials : organic cotton, PET

“I love it! The collection is cool and conscious,” said Ziggy Marley, when asked about his feeling on the environmental sensitivity Billabong has taken care to use in The Billabong x Bob Marley Collection.

“Working with the Marley family to interpret their vision of their father on to our garments has been inspiring,” notes Billabong US Design Director Rob McCarty. “Cedella and Ziggy have provided great insight to make this collaboration a success.”

The Billabong x Bob Marley Collection will be available by mid December in selected specialty stores and Billabong Stores accross Europe.
