This throwback goes out to former Floridian Kris Markovich and his Color part. Back then you just skated around with a camera and a video part would just happen organically. Kris commentates during the footage and figures most of it was filmed around 1992-1994. Which is insane, especially towards the end when you see what he put down at some iconic San Francisco spots.

I've posted some videos of Pontus Alv before, but for whatever reason I never posted his "Strongest of the Strange" part. Which is arguably one of his best parts. Speed and style with a DIY attitude, this is Pontus at his best.

Rick Howard's part from Girl's Goldfish has always been one of my favorites to watch. The ease in which he does his tricks mixed with his light footed style just looks perfect. The last line on the walk of stars is quintessential Rick Howard, just check out the front shuv and quick kickflip up the curb.

Back in the day skating switch wasn't so commonplace as it is now. Nowhere was that more evident than in the switchstance section of old 411 videos. Skating switch even had it's own section, if that wasn't enough it was all slow mo as well. Check out this edition which features Josh Kalis, Tom Penny, and Eric Koston shutting it down.

This throwback goes out to one of the most underrated skaters of all time, Gershon Mosley. I've seen him do some of the most insane tricks whether it's ledges, handrails, transistion, it doesn't matter. Gershon also left his mark on hubba switch smith grinding it back in the day, and doing the best kickflip frontside noseslide ever done. If you don't believe me then just watch it below in his Transworld part from "The Reason." You should also check out this old 411 where he and the rest of the A-Team put it down inside our SkatePark.

Bryce Kanights has shot some of the most legendary skate photos of all time. In this new Photographer Series video Bryce sits down and talks about two of his most famous. The Gonz Alcatraz photo, and Wade Speyer's nosegrind on a very fresh Hubba Hideout. Enjoy.

This 411 Best of 5 Chaos has a mix of everything. There's some off the wall stuff like one footed smith grinds and backflips. Then you have a mini Girl team montage with Mike Carroll stealing the show. Last but not least, there's a double frontside flip line with none other than Geoff Rowley and Andrew Reynolds.

I'll never forget Tampa Pro 2000. I was about to turn 16, skateboarding was my life, (still is) and Tampa Pro was the Holy Grail. I was at the park open to close soaking it all in every day. I was in awe of Mike Carroll and Andrew Reynolds, entertained by Sean Sheffey, and confused by Bam Margera's fresh dyed blonde hair. By the way, resembling Eminem had no effects on his switch backside tailslides, a.k.a SSBSTS. It was also the first time I saw Tony Hawk and Steve Cab skate. I'm not talking about just vert either, they were hitting the handrail in the street course as well. I could go on and on...but you should just watch 411VM's video from 2000 below. I also hope to see everyone I just mentioned out on the course this weekend.

Matix has a little history piece on one of their founders, Daewon Song. He talks about his skate influences, growing up in Hawaii, and also the beginning of Matix Clothing. You can check out that video below. In the meantime, check out this epicly later'd episode where Daewon relives his part from World Industries infamous Love Child.

Chris Mulhern just dropped his new video project, The Philadelphia Experiment. I don't think I've ever seen anything like this. Chris takes you on a journey back in time to the peak year of Philadelphia skating, 1997. By mixing together Hi-8, HD, and 16MM film with new and old never before seen clips, Chris creates a seamless world where the future of skateboarding intertwines with it's past. It's a world where Ishod Wair skates next to Ricky Oyola. Skateboarding is timeless, and this edit is the perfect blend that proves it.
