Well, that was about time! Ishod finally gets his first ever pro model on Nike SB and to celebrate this historical event Nike called up a few team mates, got together and created the video above. It doesn’t always have to be a video part. CLICK HERE to purchase the shoes.

Unaware as they all must have been on this trip it ended up being a swan song in style.

That new new Anti Hero just days after their full length became available on the web.

Only a bit older but still fresh the one-eight moves on into the future.

The description Johnny now John Wilson gave on his Vimeo says it all this is an old clip he probably made right after this Nike SB trip to Argentina. Now it is a video for us all to watch. Enjoy!

the letter A is the 1st letter of the alphabet the letter H is the 8th letter together they stand for Anti Hero Skateboards. 18 also stand for quality skateboarding and this collab with the swoosh brings us just that featuring Grant, Brian, and Daan in L.A.

Not only does this Nike tour video have something that we have been waiting for for a while now, new Vincent Touzery footage!

The real surprise came at the end when the credits said that the 3 main filmers were Johnny Wilson, Matt Bublitz and Cory Kennedy. It seems that Cory is not only a serious talent on the board but seeing him stunting behind the lens makes us wonder when his first video is dropping.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Reggae music is now officially the favorite genre for skate videos in 2017. What else is hot: Grant’s Kickflip (of course), ISHOD WAIR ISHOD WAIR ISHOD WAIR, CK-1’s ability to keep having fun for half a decade now & Donovon’s surf related technique in his movements.

Watch Grant Taylor, Cory Kennedy, Max Palmer, Donovon Piscopo, Ishod Wair, Youness Amrani, Andrew Wilson, Cyrus Bennett, Blake Carpenter and Bobby Worrest in “58 Tour East”.

Ishod Wair’s ability to get better at skateboarding every time something new comes out does not seem to calm. Here’s a nice new piece by NikeSB for Ishod’s Dunk Low Pro. Keep em coming, man!

Grant Taylor and Collin Provost take skateboarding to another level and having the last part together in the new Volcom video Holy Stokes is of course well-deserved!

Volcom just released their second teaser for their new movie Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening. It has been some time since Volcom has released a film focussed just on skateboarding, but the videos they put out always have been top notch. For this one they asked cinematographer Russell Houghten shine his light on Volcom’s skateboard division, a promising partnership that makes this up and coming release a must watch.

Looks like the new thing for this year is having skateboard events by the beachside. And guess what: we don’t mind that! Mille Grazie to Vans for the invitation to this year’s edition of the Vans Spring Classic. It’s the most popular mini ramp contest in Italy, not only showcasing some of the best transition skaters from Europe but also from the U.S.. The Anti Hero team showed up including Grant Taylor who definitely turned out to be the biggest name to annihilate this amazing and newly built ramp. Located in the beach town of Riccione, close to Rimini, the Spring Classic not only offered insanely great skateboarding, but also a lot nice entertainment surrounding the main event – from concerts, to parties, free beers, all the way to girls in blue dresses dancing like there’s no tomorrow. All in all, it was a weekend where it was easy to get a solid sunburn while watching mini ramp skating at it’s best while meeting awesome people. The Italians call it la dolce vita – and we want more!
