Grant Taylor

Did you know Volcom had a full-length skate video in the works? Neither did we, but judging by Holy Stokes! first trailer—featuring everyone from vets like Dustin Dollin to new jacks like Daan van der Linden—it's going to be a titan of skateboarding and cinematography. Commence drooling in three, two, one...

In advance of their upcoming skate video, Nike SB Chronicles, Vol. 3, the Swoosh has been unearthing a bunch of raw and unseen footage over the past few weeks, and now it's Slayer-loving ATV Grant Taylor's turn to get the archive treatment. Turn it to eleven and then get out there shred.

Skateboard legend Christian Hosoi made a surprise appearance at Skate Night at the House of Vans in Brooklyn, NY this week. While he was there he linked with Tim to talk about skateboarding's return to its roots before serving up his three favorite skate tricks in the pool. Watch and learn!

That's what happens when a crew of 40 skaters and bands pile into vans for long periods of time.
The idea behind the Skate Rock 2013 was pretty simple. Throw a massive crew of skaters—including four of Thrasher's Skaters of the Year—band members, and random hangers-on into a fleet of vans and have them skate all day and play music all night as they travelled across the country. The results were epic. The drummer from the band Bad Shit summed it up best, "Drunken fun debauchery music wild loud nonstop." Sure, that's not really a sentence, but it makes perfect sense.

Grant Taylor, Ben Raybourn and David Gonzalez get it done in the D.
Skate Rock is the kind of weird invention that could only come from the mind of Thrasher editor Jake Phelps: A seven-city tour featuring four bands, four Thrasher Skaters of the Year and lots of mayhem. Skate Rock kicked off in Detroit and the city proved to be an awesome location for Ben Raybourn and David Gonzalez to drop hammers and rock out.
