Back To The Feature With Aaron Herrington

To document a trick is to present a new thing into a broader context. Every new ad or clip somehow acknowledges what has taken place before it, while having the potential to influence what will come after it. The context of an iconic trick, clip, photo, or skater for that matter, evolves with the passing of time. Whether it be that someone comes and tries a harder trick on the same thing, or that it merely affects the way that later generations will come to approach skating in general—to publish a document of skateboarding is to engage in a conversation with skateboarding’s past and future.

Anthony Pappalardo is one of the forefathers of modern day street skating; his knack for combining technical innovation with an ability to reimagine the ways in which familiar spots can be seen in countless present-day examples. Aaron Herrington is one of the heaviest dudes active today, and is in many ways a descendant of Anthony Pappalardo. The two share an unconventional approach to spots, and are neither deterred by skinny run-ups nor landings... Continue Reading at Monster Children

Matt Field Bright Moments

Matt Field is a true OG of SF skateboarding and I think his part in Bright Moments may very well be his best yet. I hit up Matt to find out how he keeps the fire burning and the secret to a good wallride.—Dave Chami

I know you’ve been filming with Zach constantly for a few years now, how did you meet him? and describe your relationship.
I’m not too sure how it came about, I want to say a close friend of mine Evan Kinori had mentioned that there was this youth in town from Portland who was down with the Rasa translation of skating. Which you might say is more of a “who feels it knows it” way of holding space on your board with the intention of letting the street and your boys be your support, and you just have to show up and give it everything which goes without saying at this point. Zach just gets it on his board and behind the lens. He can bring you in closer and make you feel something that’s more than just tricks, it’s everything that got you to the moment right here now, and since that discovery we have a bond that goes a bit deeper and he is a fucking keeper. Love you sprinkles.

Magenta Dimanche

DOMINGO stands for Sunday, that special day of the week where the homies meet up for a skate. Today we are proud to present you DIMANCHE, the French Domingo episode, filmed in the streets of Bordeaux (and a tiny bit of Marseille) during a visit from our very talented Australian mate Josh Roberts.

We are especially psyched on this one. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the next chill 7 minutes of street skating; all we can hope is you want to go explore and skate, just like it did for us!

Richard Hart Green Zine Interview

When you set out to make Push was travel an important topic that you wanted to cover?

I suppose so, actually. At least, I always enjoyed the travel articles in skate mags. And skateboarding is such an amazing reason/ excuse to travel. You’ve just got to remember to spend at least one afternoon at the Szechenyi Thermal Baths (or whatever); you can’t be pushing around the streets all day every day. Not with my ancient knees, anyway.
