The Berrics has launched a new series called “PUSH” which goes back to the hometowns of today’s best skaters to learn out what drew them to skateboarding and tells the story of the people and experiences that got them to where they are today.
The first episode heads to Virgina Beach, VA with Trevor Colden and his friends. In the coming days, “PUSH” will feature stories from Ishod Wair, Leticia Bufoni, Luan Oliveira, Josh Matthews, Ben Raybourn, and Aaron Homoki. Look for a new episode Cody Cepeda this Thursday.
The “My War” video above and these accompanying words are too good not to share. Thrasher Magazine nails an important piece of skateboarding’s backstory with this: “There are a handful of tricks in the history of street skating that were absolute game changers and helped push us to where we are today. Bachinsky’s El Toro kickflip in 2006 was one of them.”
It’s often been said that without a past, you have no future and we couldn’t agree more in the world of skateboarding and towards the pioneers, legends and those that have spent their lives pushing its progression. That said, ballots went out to nearly 400 qualified representatives from all eras of skateboarding history to vote for their choice for the Class of 2015 Hall of Fame inductions. After a week of vote collection, here are the results.
