Rideblock a Trick Tracker for Skateboarders

Author: Mark Page Posted: 2017-02-13


Rideblock looks like an interesting device if you're into keeping a detailed log of your tricks. Not sure how well it'll actually work, but if they keep developing it forward it would be pretty cool. It won't be for everyone, but some people like myself like to track our progress and share it with friends. It's a very similar concepts to the Garmin action cameras.

Rideblock is the first skateboard motion tracker in the world. Designed for skateboards and longboards it tracks and analyses performance metrics including tricks, speed distance and compete with friends in real time through a dedicated mobile app.

Fingers of Steel

Fingers of Steel from Sebastian Linda on Vimeo.

Chris Heck is an amazing finger boarder. I've tried it myself a few times and found it difficult to do. What Chris manages to do is pretty cool. Now I'm thinking about picking one up again and giving it another go after watching Chris' inspirational video!

The History of Skateboarding through Portraits (KickStarter)

Author: Matthew Kurtin Posted: 2016-12-01
I'm Matt Kurtin and I'm a guy that likes to take pictures and help others. I am trying to create a Photo Book that tells the story of skateboarding through portraits. Unfortunately, making these aren't cheap! I intend on telling the story of skating in four parts: the pioneers, the legends, the current amazing skaters, and lastly (but not least) the people behind the lens!

Artistically this is something that has not been done. I intend on using ONE type of film, ONE lens and ONE camera for the whole project. You can see the sample pictures to get an idea of what it will look like. I have had preliminary talks with people in the industry that are willing to help me get this project done. I just need to come up with the money to get the books get made. I can't just go out and take pictures of all these famous and legendary skaters and pioneers of the industry unless they know that I am capable of making this happen.

This isn't just an art project for me, it's a way to show the rest of the world that the skateboarding community is compassionate, cool, and we aren't just a bunch of kids ruining the paint on your houses.  ALL proceeds from this book will go to charity (American Cancer Society, Children's Hospital, Dylan Rieder's Family, and a few other select charities).

Every penny that you donate will go toward getting this book made. I already have the camera, I already have the film (well, most of it) and the funding is the last part of the puzzle. Once I have the funding, the doors will open to me and I'll get access to taking portraits of all these amazing people and making a photo book that will stand the test of time. This book means the world to me; it is a project that I want to do so badly, it's all that I think about day and night. I will make this book happen, I hope that you all are willing to help me.
