We tried to make a wheel from scratch! Yeah, like the ones you see with that flame guy at all the cool skate shops.

After finding a polyurethane mixture of the right hardness (we went with 65D, about as hard as 101A, the hardest hardnesss that skate wheels come in) we got a silicone mold-making kit from our local arts and crafts store and went to work.

Mixing polyurethane turned out to be sketchier than we expected, but no one got poisoned, so peep our supply list below if you want to try it yourselves. Just don’t sue us if you use these materials to make a sex toy of your own genitals and something goes wrong.

SUPPLY LIST:

— plastic disposable cups

— thumb tacks

— cooking oil

— liquid polyurethane mixture

— silicone rubber (for the mold)

— one skateboard wheel (to form the mold)

JENKEM – Raspa’s Tapes: The "Baker 4" Premiere W…

jenkemmag – Remember the after credit montages in skate videos? You know, after the VHS tape went black and you’d think the video would be over, only to find one more party montage? Raspa’s Tapes is kind of an homage to that, where we throw our friend and filmer Alex Raspa in random places and watch him get drunken footy. Hopefully this Raspa Tape conveys the excitement around the Baker video, which aside maybe from Mark Suciu’s Verso or the inevitable footage of someone skating on a Tesla Cybertruck, was the year’s most hyped up video.

JENKEM - A Friendly Reminder to Treat Your Filmers Well | jenkemmag

JENKEM – A Friendly Reminder to Treat Your Filmers Well | jenkem…

jenkemmag – 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.”
