then & now: erik ellington - part two!



erik's iconic collection of skate shoe continues with his supra footwear models. as part owner & pro skater, erik walks us through the challenges he faced on both ends with supra. having the community support the brand, while encouraging their complex design aesthetic, was a challenge at first but ultimately created a niche that only supra can fill. with his latest model, "the ellington", erik explains how he's been motivated again to create something he truly loves for consumers everywhere.

this concludes erik's "then & now". thanks to all the brands and people involved that help make this possible. special thanks to dan rogers for helping us set it up.

filmed & edited by bobby spero.
produced by jeremy lugo & ashley ann lalicata.

wheels on fire – creature blaze it in copenhagen!

it’s nothing but bangers, as the creature team take copenhagen by storm on bikes with bbqs built in.


you really can’t beat summertime in copenhagen. it's a city comprised of thousands of bike riders, so the creature team and some friends took to the streets and skated anything that crossed their path, come hell or high water. sometimes literally floating on water.

check out the related story, here!

p.s. the only fukkin' thing that i do not like about red bull skateboarding videos is that it auto plays by itself! fukk that shit! =|

life is...

this is an ol' one.



"...it is an ode to freedom, freedom of expression and action, through the skateboarding as a brush, the streets as a palette of colour converted to grayscale and carried to the visual record as a canvas in a screen, for its communication. life are two days and we embarked on the quest for color. life is... a poem led to the streets, through the am_r, not to say or, by its imperfection. the complete, the friendship, the collaboration, the day-to-day effort without the need for justification, an interpretation, of freedom, in my humble opinion."
