Last Friday we held the premiere and party for our fourth edition of Skate & Create. This year’s teams (Habitat, Creature, Dwindle, and Blueprint) were able to take the obstacles anywhere they want as the contest wasn’t confined to a warehouse for the first time. After some tacos and cold ones, we premiered all four videos on our in-park movie screen. Everyone was impressed at how amazing yet different each team interpreted the spirit of Skate & Create. Next, MVPs were awarded to each team in the form of a framed photo from the shoot. Silas was the MVP for Habitat, Caswell for Dwindle, Emmanuel Guzman for Creature/Santa Cruz, and Danny Brady for Blueprint. Then it was time for the big announcement. Skin pulled out the oversized cover of Devin Appelo doing a Japan air over a hot rod revealing that the Creature Fiends had won it. Have a look at the photos from the night and stay tuned as we’ll begin releasing the videos on skateboarding.com starting Monday, February 6. The March Skate & Create issue has Scanlife codes inside where you can watch all four videos with a smart phone, so if you subscribe or pick up a copy at your local skateshop, you’ll be able to see them all first!
