Tony Manfre Interview

Rad Collector - Tony Manfre Interview
Shut pro Tony Manfre has a dope new interview up at 48Blocks. Amongst other pearls, he drops this story about getting stuck for his board at EMB in San Francisco.

Yeah – I got ripped off by some punk immediately at EMB. He was like “where you from” and then he pretty much just took my board and skated off with it. When my mom came to pick me up she was like “where’s your board?” When I told her what happened she went across EMB, found the kid and said “where did you get that board” the punk says “I got this from my homeboy.” My mom’s all “I bought that board motherfucker” and took it. The whole bench of people where like “OOOOOOHHHHHHH” and I got my board back. I was twelve or thirteen.

Rad Collector - Shut x Dave Ortiz x Halloween
If you’ve never experienced it, Halloween in NYC is one of the most bananas nights of the year. Since it falls on a Saturday this year, the holiday is being stretched out to a good four day affair. In that vein, Shut and Dave Ortiz are getting together to throw a masquerade party on Thursday the 29th. They are so serious about the masquerade part that they are even providing masks to people who lame out and don’t bring one. From the looks of this invite, this is gonna be proper. Full info after the jump.

Rad Collector - Shut Wallpaper Series Behind The Scenes
We brought you the Shut Wallpaper Pro Series boards last week, now we bring you a closer look at how they were created. Far from some photoshop/illustrator bullshit, Eli Gesner created each of the decks by painstakingly creating mock antique walls and fixtures which he then photographed for the final graphic. That’s real. More pics of the creation of the Felix Arguelles board after the jump.

Rad Collector - Deathbowl to Downtown on DVD
Buddy Nichols and Rick Charnoski’s epic telling of the history of New York City street skating has arrived on DVD at Shut Skate Mechanics on Orchard. If you walk in at the right time, you may even be able to score an autograph from Shut Founder Rodney Smith, who’s known to be on premises from time to time. Here’s what he said about the occasion. “Its a monumental event. NYC and the entire East Coast is now documented in the tablets of skateboarding history. Recorded and un-leashed in one fell swoop! Bravo Rick and Buddy!” Not surprisingly, copies are already flying off the shelf. A couple more images of Shut’s shipment after the jump.

Rad Collector - Rodney Smith for Element Element Shapers Program
NYC skate godfather and Shut founder, Rodney Smith recently linked with his old friend Johnny Schillereff from Element to take part in the Element Shaper Program or ESP. The Shovelnose and Stinger are two of six Smith did for the project. RadCollector connected with him today for some words on the series.

There is a rapidly growing market for Longboards, alternative shapes and construction. This all means many different riding styles and disciplines for skaters worldwide. Johnny seemed intrigued in the position Shut is taking to meet these changes and thought to test the waters by doing a collaboration.

Read the whole conversation and check out some more pics after the jump. Rodney Smith for Element ESP is available now at select Element dealers.

Rad Collector - Shut x Skate Cayman
Shut’s Todd Jordan, Luis Tolentino, and Javier Nunez are in for a tough one this week. The three are heading to the Cayman Islands to arguably the illest skatepark in the world for the grueling task of hosting a session of Skate Cayman, the Cayman Island’s skate camp. In it’s first year, Skate Cayman has already had Shaun White, Bucky Lasek and Greg Lutzka and will be featuring Tosh Townend, Rune Glifberg and more in addition to the Shut crew before the end of the summer. Skate Cayman goes down at Black Pearl a 52,000 literal skate paradise. That’s way better than X Games, no?
