On February 22nd, 2011 a 6.3 magnitude earthquake ripped through the centre of Christchurch followed by severe aftershocks killing 185 people, destroying a city, a community and the lives of thousands of people. 5-years on and the rubble still lies in the streets of Christchurch as a cold reminder of what mother nature is capable of.
Thanks to Levi’s® Skateboarding we were able to give back to a community in need, following the lead from previous projects from Levi’s Skateboarding in Bolivia, India, Oakland and most recently Pine Ridge. Red the full story at Monster Children by clicking here.
The Monster Children Photo Comp is on again this year and will open for entries this Monday, 21st September.
Remember that epic shot you snapped last summer that still hasn’t seen the light of day? You could be sitting on a winner. Once again, there are six categories to enter your photos in: Travel, Music, Girls, Action, Lifestyle and Student.
The winner in each of the first five categories will take home $5,000, and the winner of the Student category will be awarded a prize pack put together by the event sponsors and a lifetime subscription to Monster Children.
Before you go through your catalog of images, listen to our photo comp judges Campbell Milligan and Chris Searl explain exactly what they are looking for in this year’s competition. Learn why less is more, iPhone’s aren’t the devil, and composition is everything.
For Monster Children #48, the mag took on Jason Lee as their guest editor. Then they printed the magazine, filmed him flip through it, and then decided to show off by making a bunch of limited JLee x MC memorabilia, which you can buy in a box set.
Presented by Monster Children and Nike SB and directed by Riley Blakeway, enjoy the trailer for their upcoming film, “Eight and Sand”.
The film documents the Amtrak train journey skateboarders Daryl Angel and Nick Boserio embarked upon from San Diego, California, all the way up to Seattle, Washington. This cinematic experience of life on the tracks is just a taste of the adventure that lay ahead.
Check out Peter Ramondetta, Dylan Rieder, Austyn Gillette, Josh Matthews, Kevin Terpening and Sammy Winter as they tour around Australia on the HUF Footwear X Monster Children tour.
