It’s been a couple of weeks since I caught a Battle but the Berrics was on fire this weekend with Shane O’Neill taking on Chris Cole and P-Rod taking on Tom Asta. If you saw P-Rod’s training day, you would have been amped for this as well. I don’t want …

P-Rod, Torgerson, Walker and Carlin Battle
Last weekend over at The Berrics, P-Rod took on Davis Torgerson for team Koston – P-Rod was the safe option to go with for the prediction and he didn’t disappoint. They also managed the most exciting ro-sham-bo I think I’ve seen on there. Sebo Walker came out of the gates strong against Jimmy Carlin but couldn’t quite hold it to the end. Both battles are …

DC ‘Recreate’ Teaser With Danny Way
This is really less news and more about me getting all nostalgic but DC have released a teaser called ‘Recreate’ with a voice over from Danny Way. The blurry shots that are there seem to indicate that they might be re-making an awesome poster they had in the early 90’s featuring the original team. I’ve been Googling like crazy and had no luck finding it – any of you guys know the one I mean and where I can get it? It was on my wall
Nyjah Huston’s Battle Commander
Nyjah Huston’s Battle Commander dopped on the Berrics last Saturday. If you haven’t checked out out as yet – hit it up here. There’s some damn epic moments in the clip but it didn’t have the same excitement for me as the Torey Pudwill one from a few months ago. Still, I think Huston’s full part being released by Element on September 11th is going to be the one to hang out for. Check the teasers for that over here.

You Think He’d Be Getting Better At This By Now…
JR Blastoff, AKA J.Casanova, AKA Jereme Rogers, has release his latest “song”. And by song I mean whatever it is you’re hearing below. If you check The Berrics, you would have seen his Bangin earlier in the week – we know he can still skate, he just needs to stick to that and give up on this rap thing. If you hate yourself, watch away.
Behind The Scenes Of Ortiz’s Gatorade Commercial
We mentioned the rad new Gatorade commercial featuring Chaz Ortiz back here – a single shot with a few little hits in a school hallway through to a huge 15 stair rail. The commercial is awesome and the guys have released a clip going behind the scenes. They had some serious equipment and put a tonne of effort into making it, it’s a really interesting watch… Check it out over at The Berrics.
When You’re Strange.
Aussie filmer Michael Pearse has released a 15 minute video of footage he didn’t want to see go to waste.

The Full Interview With Steve Berra – Part 2 of 4
As mentioned at the beginning of part 1, a much edited down version of this interview originally appeared in issue 18 of Pop Magazine. Steve Berra gave up hours of his time to sit with our writer, Steele Saunders, and talk about The Berrics, his history and his opinions on the direction of skateboarding. It’s an amazing interview – the full text is being released in four parts, this is part one. All up it is 17,000 words and I’ve listened to it and read it over a dozen times so …
The Berrics – New Site and Weekends Battles
This has taken me a couple of days but as an update from the The Berrics hacking article the other day… It was just a bit of a trick while they got their new site live. And the new site looks great! Better navigation (the navigate by date bar at the bottom is great), cleaner design, faster page loading, full screen mode on the video and it seems like more consistent loading of the video too. Well worth taking the time to check it out. The new site launch delayed the …
The Berrics Hacked By LulzSec?
I jumped on the Berrics this morning cause it was the first opportunity I had to check out Cole versus Ladd and Mike Mo versus Koston … Unfortunately, all I got was a mysterious message and a facebook comment thing. You can refresh the page dozens of times for different message – some of them are hilarious. There’s a few above but you can see more over here. I’ll post more when we know what’s going on – someone on Slap posted a link to a development site …
