Kinda blew it posting this when it was still Internet timely, but here’s our dude Max Taylor going off the grid with fellow Texan, Guru Khalsa. Today’s Historical Viewing. We’ve got some new pro, flow, and bro decks coming soon. Tune in or drop out.
Max heads upstream with a mid-deck scratch scraper deep in the heart of Texas. And speaking of Texas, Max just flew to Philly to meet up with LaCoste and Sir William Pierce for some East Coast crusting. Wait, that doesn’t have anything to do with Texas. Whatevs. It’s still skateboarding. (Photo: Shiny Muffins) You ever [...]
I stole this photo from LaCoste’s Instagram @natelacoste. Photo: @borntolose The trick wasn’t captioned so I’ll just go out on a limb and guess that it’s a nollie. Yeah? And speaking of nollies, if you’ve been strugglin’ with your nollie inward heelflips, you’re in luck. Max is gonna turn your ship around, like, 90 degrees? [...]
Curb cuts might drive him nuts, but Max Taylor also gets pretty jazz handed about Jersey barriers. Tight squeeze 180 nosegrind someplace other than Austin. SF, maybe? See the rest of the gallery over at the Low Card site. We decided a two-season hiatus from the Roger of the Season program was adequate. ROTS Fall [...]
Head over to the Ride Channel and let Max teach you how to do slappy bluntslides. Or just go bong hit some incense. It’s your day. You make the call.
Max Taylor performing a nosegrind on a rail where he had to like, ollie out past the kink. Gapper? Gap out? Grandpa? Photo by Shamrock McMuffins. Slow news month at Roger Corp. Most of the dudes are in TX and it’s a little hot here right now. Watch this twenty times in a row if [...]
If you looked at Mefford’s Fresh Crops, then you already saw this photo of Max Taylor doing an ollie over the bar to back Smith down the rail. If you didn’t, then please enjoy responsibly. Max rules. We really do have some new stuff coming out soon. We think you’ll be jazzed on the new [...]
Dear Friends, We spent five years and fifty-thousand dollars filming this monumental video. Seventeen different countries were visited and Bill Pierce nearly died from malaria. Twice. It was all worth it though. We present to you, Diving Into The Concrete Horizon: a skateboard video that’s so good you’ll probably either quit skateboarding or start skateboarding [...]
I found this photo of Max on Muffin’s site. I wish somebody would notify me when there are awesome photos of our dudes out there on the http://www. Help a stepbrother out here. (I’m talking to you, Muffins.) We’re almost done with our new little video offering. We’d apologize for not churning out weekly videos, [...]
Start the weekend off right with a brand-new Max Taylor solo edit from your friends at Roger Skateboards. Stoke Levels Rising!
Max Taylor – gap out to Smith grind: photo by Meat Fort. Max Taylor solo-edit dropping Friday morning. If you’re a fan of picturesque skateboarding, you’ll want to view. Days late, but Nate LaCoste is totally cutting sheet up right here. Let’s kick the rest of this week’s balls. Deal?
Hi there. Please head over to the Roger Vimeo zone and check out our most recent video offering titled: Constantly Unearthing Radical Beauty (C.U.R.B.) We realize that another curb video was just released to the internet yesterday, but our video was supposed to have been finished before Christmas… and… uh… in terms of original ideas… yeah. It’s [...]
It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to the very first Roger of the Season winner, Jamal Gibbs from Boynton Beach, FL. As described in the R.O.T.S. bylines, Jamal is working on his outro video which will be up on the site sometime in March. We hope Jamal’s video inspires you to send [...]
I just got the new issue of COLOR in the mail and there’s a really nice review of Secondhand Stoke within its pages. Thanks, Noel! J Row’s Slay Anything graphic found itself on the Complex Magazine’s list of 50 Sick Skate Decks They Want Right Now. Good stuff, J Row. Surprised that the Tugbook graphic didn’t make [...]
I was stumbling around on the internet this morning and found this video of Max Taylor who is now a flow-bro for Imperial Motion. Filmed and edited by Calvin Millar.
Went skating yesterday with Ryan (pictured above), Max, Bill, and Nate L. We probably got about 200 clips for the video projects we’re working on. I think we might have the best team in the history of skateboard. Feels pretty awesome. But it also makes me feel a little sad for all of the other [...]
Shaun Mefford just sent me this photo of Max and I have no idea what’s going on here… did he slide the whole thing? Did he slappy the yellow curb before he hit the rail? Is that his scooter? It looks like that rail is knobbed pretty heavily at the end… I don’t even know. [...]
I took a few days off the skate site perusal program and totally missed Max Taylor’s Firing Line over at Thrasher. Nevertheless, it happened and here it is. Thanks for being awesome, Max. And thanks for filming Max being awesome, Rob G. Cesar Fernandez is now fully on Orion Trucks. Here’s his Welcome Video. Good [...]
All good things must come to an end, including the Roger Video. Part 3 is now up on thrashermagazine.com. Just wanted to take a minute and thank some people, including: the Roger Team, all of the dudes who filmed stuff (expect a call this week to discuss compensation), Mike Aho who edited the video, Thrasher [...]
I think Thrasher did a good job of explaining part 1: “The faces of the guilty have been skulled over to protect the innocent. Max Taylor and Ryan Holloway mash out the jams in part one of three… and it’s a barn burner. Lytle and ((Sounder)), fuck yeah! ” Watch it here. Part number 2 [...]
I’m sure you’re aware that this Saturday (August 11th) the Roger video, Secondhand Stoke, will begin airing on thrashermagazine.com. Additionally, there will be a handful of local premieres. Such as: Saturday August 11th 7-11PM at antisocial skateshop in Vancouver, BC. (click for flyer) Monday August 13th 9PM at The Monkey Bar in Milwaukee, WI. (click for [...]
I stole this photo off of Mefford’s tumblr (again.) This is Max doing some kind of tail slide but on the front end of the skateboard. Weird. Bill wanted me to tell you guys that his friend Peter made this video and that it is cool. And it is cool. And Tim wanted me to [...]
Our buddy Shaun Mefford (Shaggy Mittens) has a new Fresh Crops photo gallery up over at The Skateboard Mag’s site. TX heavy with 3 Roger sightings, including the nose grind photo of LaCoste above. Good job Shiny Muffins. And Happy Belated Birthday, Dude. Our other buddy (we only have 2) Rye Beres (aka Denver from The Internet [...]
If you poked around the site yesterday you might have noticed that Max Taylor made the vertical drift from Flow Bro to Am. When you see his part in Secondhand Stoke you’ll know why. Here’s a link to my VICE column from yesterday, it’s about a Thrasher Magazine from 1987. Sticker Party. Enjoy your Tuesday.
