Taylor Steele’s Proximity On Outside TV

by The Editors on October 10, 2017

Surf filmmaking legend Taylor Steele has a new TV show streaming on Outside TV. The eight episode show A Life In Proximity features the stories behind the creation of his latest film Proximity. Nice tie-in, right?

“With talent so stacked on a project like Proximity, and so many intense locations explored, it’s almost impossible to showcase every highlight in the confines of one film. With the ‘A Life in Proximity’ series, we can take viewers further into these incredible trips and show meaningful moments that we just didn’t have room for with the original release,” says producer Taylor Steele.

Board Rap’s Brooke Geery Interview

by The Editors on September 12, 2017

Our favorite online snowboarding maven Brooke Geery spills her history of (and snowboarding on the Internet in general) in a two-part interview with Board Rap. Oddly, we saw no mention of Flakezine (nor Heckler). Guess those were a little before her time. Hard to believe, but true. Click the link for Part 1. Or here for Part 2.

CJ Olivares New CEO of SLS’s ETN

by The Editors on June 22, 2017

Street League Skateboarding’s video on demand channel ETN got a serious boost on June 22, 2017 when it was announced that Fuel TV founder CJ Olivares would be the new CEO.

“Finding an executive like CJ to lead the business into the next chapter is like finding a unicorn,” said SLS founder and Chairman of the Board Rob Dyrdek. “There are no other people I know that have run a global channel of the magnitude that he has with the unique programming mix of skateboarding, live events, and irreverent original shows. He is a perfect fit to take ETN to the next level and developing SLS into the future.”

This seems like a perfect fit. No one in action sports television has done a better job of bridging the gap between TV execs and skateboarders than Olivares and he seems happy about this new chapter.

“Taking the helm of ETN Media is an amazing opportunity to continue to build a game-changing platform that can engage and entertain skateboarding audiences around the world. The team’s early efforts to create original, must-see programming have already struck a chord with a global fan base and this is just the beginning.” Olivares continues, ”In terms of SLS, there is an exciting opportunity for continued international expansion on the road to skateboarding’s debut at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.”

We’re looking forward to seeing what Olivares can pull together this time around. For the official word from SLS, please follow the jump.

Neal Hendrix’s Twitter Feed Hijacked?

by The Editors on April 27, 2017

Checking in on Twitter this morning and noticed that it appears that a woman named “Joan Dickinson” who is apparently “looking for a man” has hijacked skateboarder Neal Hendrix’s verified Twitter account. One day it’s street photos from Hendrix’s trip to Japan and lost baggage on the way to Rio, and now it’s this:

Sadly, we can’t even ask Neal what’s up, because we only have his Twitter feed. . . Neal, please let us know what’s up? Is this a new sponsorship deal, a stolen password, gender reassignment?

Editors’ Update (3:07 PM April 27, 2017): After a short time off the Twitter air, Neal was back up with the following message:

Good to know it’s possible to get things fixed so quickly on Twitter. Guess that’s what comes with being verified.
