Cool skateboarding blogs

3 Apr

Here are some other skate blogs I enjoy.

Caught in the crossfire. UK

From London, UK. Zac has been involved in combining his talents and putting on awesome events combining skating and live music for over ten years. Ten years ago while living in England I was lucky enough to get on a bus to Liverpool with a few friends and go to the infamous Halloween skate party ‘Night of the Living Dead!’  One of the best nights ever.

At the time Zac had an office right near the Playstation Skatepark, which then became Bay 66 and I believe now is run by Nike SB. The new bowl there looks epic and I was stoked that my mate Morph got to skate at the opening party.

Zac Crossfire also made it to Marseille for Bowlriders the following year, which was unbelievable fun. If you are in London with time on your hands and wanna get your skate party vibe on get to know this website backwards.

Bluetile Obsession, SoCal

The writings of Ozzie Ausband, a man who knows all about empty pools. He can also write a pretty mean bit of non skate related fiction to set the mood. Inspiring stuff.

Some amazing writing combined with great photos and vids mostly of pools you would otherwise only dream of, this is probably my favourite.

Skateboard.com.au

One of the best skate websites around and coming right at you from the town I started skating in, Geelong. Drew and Potty have got it down. Just don’t spend too much time on the forums.

SKATEBOARDING.COM.AU

http://www.skateboarding.com.au/blog/

Can’t say I am sure that much of the content on this blog is about skateboarding at all yet really, spreading itself thin over a range of different subjects. Needs a bit more skater input to get the thing right that’s for sure. But I am sure with a web address like that  it will get better. Please someone get involved!

Transworld Japan Skate blog

Currently only available in Japanese but I am working on translating some of the blog articles and have some of my own blog with translations of interviews with skaters I met at Bondi Bowlarama and the Opening of St Kilda skatepark. More to come.

    I have older brothers so I really want to try to get into skateboarding. I have watched a decent amount of skate videos online but they make it look too easy. I think the best way to excel is through practice. It really is an interesting sport and truly very cool to learn about!
