Eugene Kang, who runs Terminal Skate Shop out of his New York City apartment, made this quick PSA reminding skateboarders, and especially sponsored ones, of a few things they can do to help the filmers who put them on in the first place.

So we wanted to share Eugene’s five tips to keeping your filmer happy:

1. “BE FUCKIN’ PATIENT.”

(Don’t sweat the filmer for your clip as soon as you get home.)

2. “DON’T WASTE THE FILMER’S TIME.”

(Don’t be late and don’t punk out when you realize the spot/trick is harder than you imagined.)

3. “FUCKIN’ HOOK UP YOUR FILMER.”

(Any money you can chip in towards buying the filmer drinks, food, or weed will be greatly appreciated and make them want to work with you in the future.)

4. “BLESS THAT MOTHERFUCKER.”

(When you have extra product, give it to the filmer.)

5. “Take your fuckin’ homie with you.”

(Once you get sponsored, don’t ditch your longtime filmer for the famous company filmer.)

Hopefully, Eugene’s thoughts resonate with you, and the next time you go out filming you might consider carrying the camera bag or at least letting your filmer take an extra swig of your Gatorade/backwash.

Eugene:

“It’s just about loyalty and taking care of your friend. Because at the end of the day he’s not just a filmer, he’s your homie. And if you move up, he should move up with you. If you come up, he should come up with you…Those are the guys that are gonna get you put on, and I hope in turn you put them on.”

JENKEM – Preserving Original Bricks from the Brooklyn Banks | je…

jenkemmag – When word got out that NY was removing the majority of the original bricks from the Brooklyn Banks–for good this time–we couldn’t let these treasures be lost to the dustbin of history. In the deadest days of quarantine lock-down, we biked out to the Banks to get our hands on as many bricks as we could carry with the idea to send them out to the skaters that made them significant. Though it would’ve been sick to save wheelbarrows of bricks and send them out to every skater that’s ever done a wallride, we settled on four because they were damn heavy and it’s the thought that counts.
