san antonio de los baños: a visual vignette!

the video is a 3 minute mood piece mostly shot in a small town called san antonio de los baños, cuba - where the second biggest skate scene on the island resides. on every trip to cuba, we visit this small town to deliver skate gear and support the town's emerging skate community. we bring havana skaters on these trips, and it's a great way to build and grow the island's skateboarding family. shot in july of 2013.

a big thanks to insightful for the licensing of his music!


veedro films follows a crew of talented and restless skaters from havana, 23yg, as they team up with american skateboarder miles jackson to build a state-of-the art skate park and vie for a chance to host their country’s first-ever international skate competition. the crew faces challenges. their current skatepark is decrepit and needs repairs before they can host a first-class skate competition, sponsors are hesitant to work around a harsh american embargo, and there are many bureaucratic hurdles in the way before the cuban government approves construction permits.

but over the 9 months it takes to build the park, jackson and 23yg will prove that they can overcome cultural prejudice, bridge the gap between cuban and american bureaucracies, and host a skate competition, opening cuba to a global cultural movement.

personally, i have not heard any news about dave bachinsky for some time now, but he has been handling and working on his new project, shape three. a non- profit / d.i.y woodwork cottage industry, that recycles and repurpose used / broken skateboard decks, enabling him to raise funds for his local skate park. massive big ups, dave! \m/

for the past few years, dave bachinsky as been taking his broken boards and boards from friends to repurpose into photo frames and rings. he takes 75% percent of the proceeds and gives it directly to his hometown to help build new obstacles at the local park he learned to skate at.

about this book.
the first book to celebrate one of the iconic brands of american streetwear.  an originator of west coast street and skate style, fuct was a cult los angeles brand that went on to become one of the most influential american streetwear labels, influencing not only the style but also the graphic and referential approach of countless artists and companies. driven by the provocative vision of its creator, the artist erik brunetti, fuct’s appeal drew on contemporary skate aesthetics and invoked a situationist slant on brand-oriented consumer culture. famous for their appropriation of iconic logos, and renowned for collaborations with artists, designers, and companies as diverse as david mann and shawn mortensen, fuct continues to flirt with controversy as it remains at the forefront of american street fashion and culture. published to coincide with the brand’s twentieth anniversary, with contributions from icons of the street fashion world such as aaron rose and gary warnett, this beautifully illustrated, comprehensive volume explores the archives of the brand’s products and advertising, as well as brunetti’s artwork, sketches, and films that continue to inspire and inform the brand.

about the author.
erik brunetti is the founder of fuct. aaron rose is a filmmaker, gallerist, and writer. gary warnett is a journalist whose work has appeared in numerous fashion and pop culture blogs and magazines.

no other magazine pushed the boundaries of skateboarding and pop culture like big brother, the raunchiest, rowdiest magazine to come out of the 1990s. constantly at the center of much-deserved controversy, the rag has been decried as pornography, bought and unexpectedly dropped by larry flynt of the hustler empire, and credited as the genesis of the jackass universe; it was also the champion of unknown skaters and featured some of today's biggest names in skate culture when they were just children. now author sean cliver puts a bow on the publication with the big brother book, a collection of covers and spreads from every issue of the notorious publication. featuring high-quality scans of the magazine itself no production or layout files remain in existence with just enough text to explain what's going on and choice quotes from each issue, this book makes it easy as well as fun to stoop to big brother's level.
