Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of filming a major video part? Then look no further. In this installment of Inside the Skater's Studio Danny Montoya sits down with us to discuss his section in Adio Footwear's "One Step Beyond". Topics include doing tricks on film once and then never again, marathon lines, and not wearing Adio shoes... except to skate. Also did 9/11 play a role in the popularity of One Step Beyond?

A couple of months ago we received a random piece of mail from London, post marked via the "Royal Mail". Intrigued, we peeled it open and discovered a rad little photo booklet by Polar Skate Co's Jerome Campbell. It had been a long time since we added anything to the "Book Club" section on TOA, so we caught up with Jerome when he was recently passed through NYC and got him to share a little bit of the story behind the mysterious booklet that he'd sent us.
Flashback Friday took us into the old Static archives and we realized that it's the 15 year anniversary of the original Static video and most of the original parts aren't very easy to find online. So we exported one of the sickest time capsules from the video. This section spans from Boston, down through NYC and into Philadelphia. Bill Strobeck and RB Umali were both a big help with this section. If you haven't seen this you should definitely have a quick watch before going out to skate today. Viva la Flashback Friday!
