Fish By Fish: Jeremy & Jayde

by The Editors on April 10, 2017

The story of Jeremy Fish, his wife Jayde and how they’re ruling the San Francisco art scene is spelled out in the SF Weekly and it’s worth a gander. Check it:

Both Jeremy and Jayde have achieved celebrity status within the fringes of the established art community for some time, and Jeremy has become a cult figure in the skating industry for his tripped-out line work, often depicting tiny, somewhat morbid, pink bunnies. The image originated from the calling card of a skateboarding crew he created in the ’90s: The Silly Pink Bunnies.

Remember the SPBs? Sure you do. For the rest of the story, flick the flink.

Keith Malloy’s Fishpeople Film Tour

by The Editors on April 10, 2017

Join Keith Malloy for a premiere screening of his new film, Fishpeople. The documentary tells the stories of a unique cast of characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea. From surfers and spearfishers to a long-distance swimmer, a former coal miner and a group of at-risk kids on the streets of San Francisco, it’s a film about the transformative effects of time spent in the ocean—and leaving behind our limitations to find deeper meaning in the saltwater wilderness that lies just beyond the shore.

You’ll have a chance to nab a limited edition Fishpeople stainless steel pint cup and a Yulex® beverage cozie. Keith will also be hosting a question and answer session after the film. For all the details, please click the link.

Lost Art In Stereo By Christian Cooper

by The Editors on March 24, 2017

The word from Stereo Skateboard’s Chris Pastras and Jason Lee is as follows:

Ethan Fowler came on to ride for Stereo in 1994 when A Visual Sound was pretty much in the can and finished, so we gave him and Tobin Yelland some Super 8 film, and a two week deadline. The result was one of the most fluid, powerful, and stylish video parts of all time. Watching Ethan skate during that time was like watching Jazz great Thelonious Monk at the piano, improvisational genius.” – Chris “Dune” Pastras

“Those early Stereo days were some of the most enjoyable times of my life, and having guys like Carl and Ethan around and skating and creating with us made what we were doing that much more special. Two of my all-time favorite skateboarders, and I’m honored that after all these years we are still collaborating.’” – Jason Lee

adidas + Ari Marcopoulos = Aight’

by The Editors on February 21, 2017

It’s good to see downtown photographer Ari Marcopoulos still hangin’ with the action crowd. His current incarnation features a collab with adidas skateboarding

Central to the collection is a specially made zine “AIGHT’.” Masterminded by Marcopoulos, the zine is 26 pages capturing a winter day of skateboarding in New York City’s Lower East Side neighborhood and features an amalgamation of mixed media, vibrant color pops and signature aesthetic made consistent throughout the entire collection. Capturing select members of the adidas Skateboarding team, “AIGHT'” is a modern take on Marcopoulos’ early and now iconic work capturing the unique styles and personalities of New York skateboarders during the 1990s Golden Era of skate.

Ari’s photos are always good to see, especially when he’s in charge of their presentation. Watch for more details on the actual product drop on February 27, 2017.

Gonz, Snoop At Randy’s Donuts For Adidas

by The Editors on December 6, 2016

snoop_gonz

Adidas Skateboarding celebrated the launch of their Snoop Dogg and Mark ‘Gonz’ Gonzales’ limited edition LA Stories footwear and apparel collection at Randy’s Donuts on Monday, December 5, 2016, with a “lowrider show paying homage to Snoop and Gonz’s deep Los Angeles connection and history.”

adidas Skateboarding hosted an old school West Coast day party that included a special DJ performance by Snoop Dogg, the ‘LA Stories’ collection on display, and a lowrider show that also featured Snoop’s custom lowrider that was painted by Gonz, whose art is featured throughout the ‘LA Stories’ capsule collection. adidas Pro team riders Daewon Song, Na-Kel Smith, Tyshawn Jones, and Jack Fardell alongside influential tastemakers, industry executives, prominent media, and ecstatic fans, also enjoyed specially prepared Snoop x Gonz donuts fresh from the oven compliments of Randy’s Donuts.

Doesn’t seem possible to manufacture a better event, right? Atiba Jefferson and Skin Phillips were even there. We just wonder how Snoop really feels about his new Gonz paint job?

Burton + Dead Boxer = Greatest Snowboard

by The Editors on December 2, 2016

b2legacyc

Someone at Burton loves dead people. We’ve said before that it was because they were much easier to do deals with. But we’re not sure that’s the only reason. Over the past few decades the company has done collaborations with Andy Warhol (who is dead), Bob Marley (who is dead), and now they’re getting in the ring with Muhamad Ali (who is also dead) with the Ali x Burton The Greatest Snowboard.

When pioneers see eye-to-eye, it’s only fitting to step into the ring and celebrate with a knockout. Thus the Ali x Burton collaboration brings two legacies together with a limited release board in honor of the People’s Champion, the Greatest, Muhammad Ali.

Wonder if this boards floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee? Truthfully, we’ll never know. But we do begin to wonder how much longer it will be before they do a Hugh Hefner model.
