Tag: Andrew Allen

The lovely folks over at Village Psychic called up Mr. Andrew Allen himself to talk about his output of skateboarding clips from a few years ago. Who doesn´t love some behind-the-scenes stories, trivia, and anecdotes told from the person which lived through it?

Shoutout to AA for mentioning Van Wastell. Made us go back and rewatch his parts. He was definitely ahead of his time.

We lost count of how often we saw Aidan take a bad slam or hit his head on something, but that doesn´t make it less nerve-racking to watch him skate. Hopefully, FA pays this young man enough for good health insurance. In ” Randy Farkus” he continues doing his own thing with going down more steep (dirt) hills, maneuvering tricky manuals, and adding some sketchy pole jams to the mix. It´s always a treat to see some Aidan footage.

Another instant classic by Fucking Awesome with a lot of small details in post production of the audio and photography. It’s always a lot of fun watching those edits and finding all these little references.

Featuring an outstanding Louie Lopez, Na-Kel Smith, Anthony Van Engelen, Sage Elsesser, Diego Todd, the new guy Joe Campos, Nik Stain, Ben Kadow, John Fitzgerald, Donovon Piscopo, Sean Pablo & Andrew Allen.

A really nice concept made with a attention to detail that makes us continuously want to see more from what is amongst the best ever skate shops in the world! So go to Lotties in L.A.

Sobriety leads most pro’s back on the path to a productive skateboard life. 12 steps can turn back into 12 stairs again all of a sudden and for AA this has been the second coming of his career.

After the success of the first movie and the leftover montage we now get “Boys Of Summer 2”. The film has the same humor, the same behind the scenes type of feel and big-name skating that the first one had.

Still, part 2 seems more serious, less of the cuff and more focussed, you win some you lose some, see for yourself.

Go watch the new “Hockey – Daytona Tijuana Ventura” Video to see new footy of  Donovon Piscopo, John Fitzgerald, Andrew Allen, Diego Todd. Enjoy!

 

Hockey is putting out a lot for us to feast on in 2018. From Hockey III to the Nike SB Killshot video and now these two videos. Ben and Andrew both seem to be putting in work so to promote both the company and their pro-product.

Anyway, with this much output, it makes you wonder when the next FA video will drop. Hopefully sooner rather than later but for now enjoy these two people doing their thing.

Yesterday Magnus today Lotties, #trendwatch 2018 continuing the video after the credits have rolled.

Is this a homage to old Girl videos like Mouse and Yeah Right where the credits where a force to be reconned with?
Who knows, who cares, when we get new Reynolds, Hsu, Brady, Spanky, Allen and a “full part” by Dane Barker

Damn Andrew Allen is productive! And like a true sequel, this one starts where that last part ended which feels like we are watching all the tricks he wanted but did not manage to get before his deadline.
Anyway, hats off to AA for giving us another one.

It’s live and it has a lot of AA and Donny Footage to offer. One of the most interesting companys in the business is also having new amateurs, and they open up the video.

It’s a simple recipe, two dudes having a chat. But when the two dudes are some of Skateboardings most beloved and stylish men then you know it’s a recipe with a delish outcome. With chat around LA from music to restaurants and it’s all topped off with photos of AVE crushing LA.

Andrew Allen’s chat formula has produced another wee tasteful delight and if you haven’t checked it out before go back read them all, it’s really your favorite skater talking shit with a bunch of your other favorite skaters.

A while back it seemed that Andrew Allen was slowly morphing out of skateboarding and into a life of beer drinking and hanging on the beach. But how lucky are we that he turned things around. Since the Vans video it has been one part after another, not all equally good but all with great moments. At the end of the part, we get the longest bs boardslide since Dane Brady’s closer in Place issue #57

Long long long 50-50’s on multiple kinked rails combined with a very impressive nosegrind nollie flip. Just two highlights from Kyle Walker and Elijah Berle’s VANS video that features some guest tricks from just about the whole team. Take a seat press play and enjoy!

Andrew Allen is talking about leaving Anti Hero Skateboards, living in Southern California and being sober and not having to deal with a bad hangover. We like AA and we do like What Youth. Enjoy their 23rd episode:

Under the aegis of F.A. World Entertainment Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen founded their own new company, Hockey Skateboards. Everyone who already came across productions of those two company names knows that they like to do things a little different, which is at least one of the numerous reasons they are widely celebrated for. Therefore, style-wise “Hockey II” makes no exception and the skating of Andrew Allen and Ben Kadow is just incredible!

After a long hiatus Andrew Allen is starting to release his stockpiled footage, a good thing for all AA fans and people that like great Cali style cruising.

Vans lädt am kommenden Wochenende ins wunderschöne Städtchen Riccione an der italienischen Küste ein – der alljährliche Spring Classic Miniramp Contest steht vor der Tür. Und damit nicht genug – neben dem Contest selbst ist für ein stattliches Rahmenprogramm gesorgt: Ein angekoppeltes Streetart Festival, viel Live Musik, sowie das obligatorische “Propeller” Screening runden das Ganze ab. Lasst euch überraschen…

Wer es nicht nach Italien schafft, kann sich das ganze Spektakel hier im Livestream angucken und das sollte sich lohnen – neben zahlreichen Pros aus ganz Europa haben sich unter anderem Julien Stranger, Grant Taylor, Andrew Allen und Peter Hewitt von Anti Hero angekündigt: Skateboarding der Extraklasse ist somit garantiert.

Hier noch ein Recap vom letzten Jahr in bewegten Bildern:

Vans_Prem_Poster_800x800_DE Kopie

Am 28. April präsentiert Vans im Berliner Babylon Theater die Europapremiere des Vans Skateboarding Videos “Propeller”. Unter der Regie vom gefeierten Filmemacher Greg Hunt präsentiert Propeller eine umfassende Momentaufnahme des modernen Skateboardings, die mit Auftritten der größten Namen, Legenden und wirklichen Pionieren der Szene gespickt ist. „Jedes wichtige Skateboading Video setzt einen Meilenstein: Es treibt die Community mit neuen Moves – hervorgegangen aus dem Erbe der Vorgänger – voran, fängt dort an, wo andere aufgehört haben und ist maßgebend für die Weiterentwicklung der Szene. Sie sind wahre Propeller, die das Skateboarding immer weiter vorantreiben.“
