If you’ve never seen H’Min Bam before, prepare yourselves for a treat. This video from 2004 is arguably one of the greatest independent skate videos of all time, along with possibly being the first nationally comprehensive Scottish skate video ever made. Its main filmer and editor, Alexander Douglas Craig, has gone on to produce numerous other gems, including the award-winning Macho Taildrop movie and two series of skate-related shows alongside Rick McCrank in the form of the Abandoned and Post Radical shows for Vice. Featuring: John Rattray, Seb Curtis, Jamie and Glen Bolland, Colin Kennedy, Div Adam, Stu Graham, Ferg and many more
Here is the amazing Unabomber video ‘Headcleaner’ from 2001. When putting together our recent Ode To Victoria Benches article we reminisced about some halcyon days committed to film. Eager to immerse ourselves in Toby Shuall’s part from this video we dipped into the infobahn . Our initial trawl for a good quality version of his part from this gem proved fruitless until we were helped out by Ryan Gray. This got us to thinking we should share the wealth for those of you who have never seen it and for those who have, especially during this strange time. Enjoy this transmission.Cast: Slam City Skates
CCS – When one of the best kickflippers in the game gets a new pro shoe, you bet your salty behind that we’re gonna beg him to do 100 for us. Thankfully Jon Dickson is a good sport with a kickflip that will make you cry. His shoe isn’t too bad either. Check his flicks, then pick up a pair of Dicksons at CCS.com!

TransWorld Skate – Here is the first installment of the YODferd Files; extra sessions and unused bits and bob’s from the making of #yeoldedestruction. There will be about 8 to 10 of these over the same amount of weeks. Here is a fun little session at a now Gandhi D.I.Y in San Jose. As you can tell, this stuff is really about what skating is for most everyone; having fun with your friends, laughing, and obviously challenging yourself in the process. Hope this brings a little joy in the midst of these seriously tense, and intense for a good – bad reason times. Best to all of you out there, stay safe.
