Back in late September 2014, the rated gnaR crew (Casey Schultz, Ryan Cambage, and myself) did some hanging out, skating, and filming in Philadelphia, PA. Casey was competing in the U.S. Freestyle Skateboarding Championship held at Paine’s Skatepark so we ventured down to meet Ryan and have a good time. Casey won 1st place in the amateur division back in 2011, and after a really solid first run, took the gold that year (2014) as well.

I finally got around to uploading a short recap of the competition featuring Casey’s runs as well as runs and clips from other amateurs and professionals. Some competitors even came from outside the U.S. like Canada, Sweden, and Germany. There were some insane lines and tricks thrown down, and the video doesn’t even cover half of it, but it’s a cool watch.

After the comp we hit the streets of Philly and visited FDR park (which is so insanely gnarly you have to witness it in person to realize how hard it is to skate), a DIY skate spot under a bridge somewhere, and an abandoned school (now torn down I believe). With the help of Rebecca Getman (Casey’s girlfriend  who came along for the trip) we filmed some clips using our phones and I (finally) put together a video of that skate experience as well.

Rated gnaR Films, and Bad Culture, presents Skatepark Shenanigans. Recently this summer 2011 there has been some small skate footy captured here and there, mostly at skateparks, so instead of holding onto it where no one sees it, and since it doesn’t have a proper home, I have decided to put out a small segment of this random footy. So the first, of maybe more, installment is thus: Skatepak Shenanigans.

Filmed by Ryan and myself, edited by me, produced by Rated gnaR Films, and features original, local music by Black Andy (the project of Asa Morris). The song is from a 2010 EP titled Manhattan.Death.Pose. and it, and many more, are free to download at: http://lofikabuki.bandcamp.com

Check it out:

ALSO, Dirty Maneuver…
I feel the need to give the latest for this forever skate film in the not making…
Currently All official parts are online on my youtbe and in the DM section except Dan Levy because of copyright music (currently being worked on fixing maybe) and myself becasue i’m least important (also somewhat in the working)… so there ya expect a full online relase sometime with its own, updated segment on here.

Peace!
