Dominic Palarchio's Transworld Skateboarding Proof Sheet

Dominic Palarchio is one talented individual. Whether it be on a snowboard, as part of the Burton Knowbuddy AM program, On a skateboard interacting with the urban landscape of Detroit, or behind the lens documenting Detroit Skateboarding; It's hard to know what direction he's going to go because he's good enough to follow whatever path he chooses. This very much parallels another former employee, Cameron Strand who did this interview with Dominic (and probably helped set this whole thing up). It's no surprise Cameron sees a lot of himself in Dominic. They both come from the same hometown of Brighton, Michigan.They both are a couple of wallflowers, who take a bit of work to get to know and are more...

Go Skateboarding Day at the WIG recap

  Go Skateboarding Day was this past Sunday, June 21st and we spent it at The WIG in Detroit. Community Push organized local shops to hold a contest on a feature. We picked the main center quarter pipe feature and it went down.   So, it turned out to be more of a contest in who could snake the best, but some trick still went down and prizes were won. As the sun was setting Derek Dykas ran a Dad Jam contest. While I was pretty much skating by myself, I cleaned up and took home the win.Once it was sufficiently dark, Robert Gutowski premiered his all night footage Detroit video, Nightbird. With the help of Redbull Detroit, the video...

Redbull Hartlines in Detroit

A brand new street skateboarding competition from the mind of Ryan Sheckler is coming May 8-9 to Detroit’s Hart Plaza .

Follow along with @redbullDET #HartLines and watch...

Adam Mueller edit

Adam Mueller is the Yeti of Detroit skateboarding. While sightings may be somewhat rare, they always leave you speachless. Our dude has so much style, he makes falling look good. 100% committed and relaxed till the end.   While this is "throwaway" footage filmed by Jim Tumey and Justin Bohl. I was more than stoked to watch it. A lot of the photographs I have posted are captured on video in this edit. However, If you want to see some of his better work, check out the new Tyrant Skate Co Video, Hello From the Gutter or better yet, track him down. Some of the subtle stuff will never be fully appreciated on screen. photo 1: Adam Mueller 360 flip...
