Moving on!

I'm afraid to say that after 4 odd years of doing this blog, i'm laying it to rest. I've been working on making a Magazine and first issue is about to drop. I'll be moving over to another Website and Tumblr and concentrating on that. Thanks for the support over the years and be sure to follow me over there. North Skateboard Magazine North Tumblr

Evan Smith - Transworld Cinematographer Part.

When DC's Chris Ray was asked to be one of the 13 filmers to submit a part for TransWorld SKATEboarding's latest film, The Cinematographer Project, Ray Ray naturally gravitated towards DC am Evan Smith. With Evan's effortless style and unique approach to skating and Ray Ray's mastery of the angles, editing and HD, this Evan part excerpted from the full length DVD is the perfect example of the magic that ensues when a great filmer and a great skater come together for one project.

The Cinematographer Project full length DVD, with 13 parts submitted by skateboarding's greatest filmers, is available now at, your local skate shop, or for download on iTunes.
