Days Like These Rider Profile – Camilla Mullins

Originally posted on GIRL SKATE UK:

Firstly, apologies for the delay in posting these rider profiles! A minor appendectomy has set me back a week but I’m back in business and the first of our profiles from none other than Camilla Mullins sets us off!


Questions by Lucy Adams..

Is Days Like These the first full part you’ve ever worked on?

Yes, this has been the first full video part I have worked on. Generally in the past I have filmed mini parts or just communal sections etc.

How do you feel about being involved in the project?
I was absolutely stoked to be asked by Jenna to be a part of this. We have all probably seen As If And What a few times and it’s great feeling to know that I too have been given the opportunity to maybe inspire other young girls to get into skating or even maybe just psych someone up…

Watch Tony Hawk skate the world’s first-ever horizontal loop

Originally posted on For The Win:

Tony Hawk dreamed up a challenge and Sony helped turn it into a reality. Behold the horizontal loop — believed to be the first-ever of its kind, says the 47-year-old skater.

In the video he says before attempting to tackle the loop, he had no idea what he was doing. He posted a couple of his fails on Instagram. This, per the caption, is his 12th try.

Ouch. It’s impressive his body can still take a beating like that, especially considering Hawk started skating at 9 years old. Thirty eight years and he’s going as hard as ever.

Eventually, he nails it.

The beauty of street skating is that there are no rules. No official guidelines for what makes something great. However, when all the stars align you get Miles Silvas, a once in generation talent we can all appreciate. Sit back and enjoy the show.

I Predicted Skateboarding’s future in 2006

Originally posted on Nickotine:

If you have been around long enough you have a shit load of electronic devices like laptops, phones, computers, digital cameras or storage USB thingies, all holding your uploaded past. I unearthed my old ass hard drives and laptops to excavate the skateboarding stuff I documented (like 1999-2009). So a good way to start  is an essay I wrote for a college class about the globalization of skateboarding in 2006. I seriously wrote this for a college class.
