10 years later, this makes me happy to know. Never give up. #Repost @kattdiamondtattoos ・・・ When I was about 8 or 9 years old at a skateshop called Slickwaves next to the old Academy in League city, TX I met a guy named @danmacfarlane, he was really nice and told me to never give up. It stuck with me ever since, and I've never given up since then in anything I do. #MentalitySkateboards
Thanks to Yuri Murai ( @yuriyuri_desu ) for sending me this nice package with her skate video "Joy and Sorrow". It's Japan's first female only skate video and they shred up the their cityscape, getting creative on some amazing spots. It's well produced and will give anyone some new skate ideas. Be on the lookout for #JoyAndSorrow2 which will premiere in Tokyo 6.6.15 #YuriMurai #JoyAndSorrow #SkateVideo #GirlSkaters #Skateboarding #SkateboardingJapan #skateandcreate
I found this copy of 'Texas Style 2' at @surfhousehtx Like TS1, it features lots of unseen ramp, pool, and demo footage with skating by Jeff Phillips, Craig Johnson, John Gibson, Bryan Pennington, Bill Danforth, Christian Hosoi, and more. It ends with 1988 Shut Up And Skate contest footage on the Hurricane vert ramp, at the Skate Park Of Houston. The SUAS footage is an alternative perspective of the event, which was featured in the classic skate videos "Shackle Me Not" and "Skaters From Uranus". Its soundtrack has plenty of good punk rock to get you stoked to shred. Texas Style 2 is Must See documentation of late 1980's Texas Skateboarding. Get your copy, along with part 1 from http://www.texasstyleskateboarding.com/ #texasskateboarding #skatehistory #historyofskateboarding #shutupandskate #suas #skateparkofhouston #jeffphillips #skateboarding #zorlac #vertskating #poolskating #innovationskate
It rained today so I took the opportunity to finally put together this @gibotex limited edition @embassyskateboards pro model #skateboard. It also has #JohnTexGibson rails by #EmbassySkateboards @independenttrucks and #SlimeBalls wheels. Thank you @surfhousehtx I'm also stoked on this #101KLOL T-Shirt from 1992, that I recently found at a thrift store! It was the main rock radio station in Houston back then, which used to play at the #skateparkofhouston #shutupandskate #skateordie
#Repost @dennis_mcgrath In the early 1990's Lennie Kirk lived in Westbury, which is in Southwest Houston. I'd skate with him and David Mills often... He was a ripper... Unfortunately, after a massive head injury, he changed A LOT. Read about it in this new Vice article. I look forward to the new book @dennis_mcgrath made called "Heaven". ・・・ Check out my interview on the @vice site about my forthcoming book #Heaven....link in my profile. #LennieKirk #SeemsBooks @dcshoes Thanks @nieratko !!!
Nothing like hearing some of your favorite skate music live. In the early 90's you'd hear Helmet in skate videos, at demos, and during contests. I went to their concert in 1994, but they were even better last night. Helmet killed it! If you don't know their music, start with their album "Meantime". This was the "Betty" album anniversary tour. #helmet #helmetbetty #helmetbettytour2015 #helmetband #fitzgeraldshouston

This Switch 270 to frontside nose slide at #LinkwoodPark, from late 2004, just surfaced. Thanks to Brad Roberson for getting it to me. I forgot about the video because the goal was to get the photo sequence, where you have to land your trick quickly, because you're burning film. This was before skate ramps suddenly appeared at Linkwood... The ramps are now gone again... Fun times at this place! #skateboarding #houstontexas #MentalitySkateboards #photosequence
My new toys. They're limited edition, but I'm not going to collect them, I'm going to skate them like you're supposed to. I like to feel that 80's skateboard feel every now and then. I have some trucks, wheels, and rails for them, and I'll post a picture when they're built. #JohnTexGibson #JeffKendall #SantaCruzskateboards #EmbassySkateboards #Zorlac #sk8ordie

I just found out that @iTunes has an official category for my videos, which are at both ends of the skateboarding spectrum. "Skateboarding Explained: The Instructional Video" helps one learn to skateboard and improve quickly, and "Skateboarding Realms" shows original tricks and combos on unique street obstacles. https://iTunes.apple.com/us/artist/dan-macfarlane/id617419761 "Skateboarding Explained" official website - http://www.SkateboardingExplained.com "Skateboarding Realms" official website - http://www.SkateboardingRealms.com #skateboarding #skatevideo #skatevideos #iTunes #skateboardingexplained #skateboardingrealms #MentalitySkateboards #LakeOwenCamp #WoodwardCamp #HoustonTexas #skateandcreate #skateboardermagazine
On the @michaelstrahan @diynetwork TV show "Backyard Stadiums". 2007. At this time I'm critiquing the ramp they built. I had also recently released my instructional video "Skateboarding Explained", which they used clips from on the show. #tbt #MentalitySkateboards #DIYNetwork #TV #SkateboardingExplained #MichaelStrahan
2007 was the only time I ever paid attention to the Super Bowl. I had just finished doing a DIY Network TV show "Backyard Stadiums" with Michael Strahan, so I wanted to see how he did. Ironically Michael began playing football at Westbury Highschool, in the same Southwest Houston neighborhood where I began skateboarding. On the TV show set, I taught Michael how to skateboard and gave him a copy of my instructional DVD "Skateboarding Explained". He helped the New York Giants win the Super Bowl that year and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame! Did the extra balance and coordination he got from skateboarding give him the winning edge? #skateboarding #superbowl #MichaelStrahan #NYgiants #MentalitySkateboards #SkateboardingExplained #howtoskateboard #diynetwork #profootballhalloffame #TVshow #goodmorningamerica #GMA #MikeMcGill #bonesbrigade #PowellPeralta #football #Westbury #HoustonTexas @michaelstrahan @diynetwork
#Repost @elitecollective I'm stoked that @mentalityskateboards are now available at Elite Collective in southwest Houston. EC is in my childhood neighborhood, Westbury, where my skating began. Within a year of when I started skating, I met the owner @therapplife, and it's great to be reconnected. Give him a visit! 10803 S. Post Oak Rd. Houston, TX 77035 ・・・ #WeKnow the #sk8life starts in your own hoods & @mentalityskateboards roots date back 25 years on these very streets in #theBURY & the areas surrounding @elitecollective 🙌Our good friend @danmacfarlane grew his own #local based business over the years in the skateboarding world.
