Kicking things off for this week's web video aggregation, Anthony Van Engelen is awesome. His new shoe from vans, the AVE 6 is out now and Greg Hunt filmed this sick commercial to celebrate its release.
In the not quite skating but still about skating department, this one's for the Team Managers out there. Despite the free product and endless travel, being a Team Manager for any major skate brand has its drawbacks. Having to do this is why I've never wanted to be a team manager. It's a thankless job but éS footwear's Scuba Steve definitely deserves props for getting it done well year after year.
Traffic just posted their entire "Tokyo Transfer" video on their site. Definitely cool to see Ricky Oyola, Jack Sabback, Deshi, Henry Panza and Rich Adler getting creative in Tokyo.
TransWorld SKATEboarding is just rolling out the first videos from their annual Skate and Create contest. This year Adidas battles it out with Lakai, Fallen and last year's champs, Etnies. The first two videos: Adidas' "Light, Shape, Color" and Fallen's "Lose Your Illusion," are online now. Both vids utilize the obstacles and space in different ways, though both share a theme of color, pattern and the use of optical illusions. Pretty cool.You can view those videos here.
Chet Childress and Al Partanen share a pretty sweet video part in the Shrunken Head skateshop vid, ""Fully Flawed." You can see their part here.
Finally, Danny Garcia has joined his Brea homies James Craig, Austyn Gillette and Raymond Molinar on the Sml. Wheels team and they made this little video to welcome him to the squad.
