“A Day of S.K.A.T.E”

June 26, 2012

By: OhioSkateUniv

Paul Rodriguez & Manny Santiago play a game of SKATE across L.A.

This is the end result of a contest AT&T and P. Rod teamed up on in which a filmer was given a chance to get paid to film skateboarding on top of an all expense paid trip to L.A. The winning filmer was Andrew Lovgren, who got to work with Nigel K. Alexander (whom skate heads should already be familiar with) to pump out this video. You can find some behind the scenes videos here.

Chad Knight Retires

March 28, 2011

By: OhioSkateUniv

“I have known Chad for a very long time. I remember him being this little kid from Columbus Ohio that was getting flowed by H-Street. I have always known what an amazing skateboarder he is. Definitely one of those people you watch and just know “he’s got it”. Over his years as a professional Chad has given skateboarding some amazing moments. Beyond giving us all some gnarly skating he has given us all a really good guy that can back all of it up. I am very proud to have Chad be part of this team since day one.
