Desillusion: This is Eric Koston (Video)

Desillusion magazine, supported by Nike are proud to present their latest video “This is Eric Koston”, a video portrait that pays tribute to the Legendary street skateboarder, Eric Koston.

As one traces the evolution of modern street skating from its earliest foundation to the unbelievable heights to which it has risen, Eric Koston has served as a constant innovator each step of the way. Since turning pro in 1992, Eric Koston has remained unfadeable in a cut-throat contest capacity as well as on the raw street level that prides itself in taking no shorts, all while never seeming to take any of it all that seriously. The wheels are always in motion, even when off his board, as Koston has helped advance innovation in skateboarding through his dedicated approach to footwear design (his creativity has yielded several classic skate shoes already) and by co-founding The Berrics with long-time pal and former roommate, Steve Berra.

Visualtraveling – Meet The Stans (Video)

Watching skate videos almost makes me upset. It’s so frustrating that I can’t do anywhere near half of these tricks. I guess I’ll have to settle for ollies, kickflips and shove-its.

Not much is known to the world about the bizarre countries within Central Asia all ending with ‘stan. ‘Meet the Stans’ documents the journey of a group of various skateboarders traveling along the ancient Silk Road traversing China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan.
