Gino Iannucci recently left his long time sponsor Chocolate Skateboards to join Anthony Van Engelen & Jason Dill at Fucking Awesome. Jenkem has the interview:
I’m on the net of course, but I can’t be checking out too much skate shit. There’s just too much, which doesn’t get me psyched to skate, it makes me want to throw the board in the shed. I can go on about this, but I’ll leave it at that. Too much of it and I’m jaded. I’d rather be a bit ignorant to what’s going on so I can just do me.
Sounds about right.
Tonight stop by Tattooed Mom and check out Another Filthy Deck Show starting at 9pm. Partial Proceeds will go toward more concrete for FDR.

We’re a big fan of our friend John Freeborn and although I wasn’t able to film a trick for the friend’s section, I’m happy to share John’s 41st Birthday Part from last week where he set out to make a part consisting of 41 tricks. Good work old man! 41 years young and still a ripper at heart. Happy Birthday homie!
Some time over this past year I found myself skating from Center City to South Philly and happened to encounter the Bing Streetside car filming in old city.
I chased the bing car from 2nd and Market to 2nd and Chestnut or Walnut but unfortunately only the first glimpse of me has been updated in Old City as seen above.
Fortunately that same day on the same skate I crossed paths again with the bing car at 4th and Christian where I was able to chase it down for the entire block until we got to Washington and we had to part and go our separate ways. That bit of Bing Streetside (it’s tough to resist the urge to write ’google streetview’) has been updated and I put together a quick video of the stills the whole way down the block below.
You know us here at the haveboard.com offices are very much interested in the topic of the hoverboard actually becoming a reality? Well we’re getting closer, and apparently there is a kickstarter being prepared where you could purchase a hoverboard for $10,000. Start saving your loot, kids!
This Friday August 1st, Vans Presents ASA&CS First Friday with Oliver “Ollie” Wilson. Come on out from 6 to 9, check out the artwork, watch some skateboarding, and have a good time. In case you don’t believe me, check out the recap from June’s First Friday.
Phil Jackson has a show up this month with some other folks and the closing reception is this Sunday. It’s also a good opportunity to pick up’s final issue of Borderline Retard since cops shut down FDR on the fourth.
I’ll be doing a zine release at the closing reception for the show Temporary Autonomous Aggro Zone at Marginal Utility in Philadelphia on Sunday, July 27th from 4-6pm. The exhibition pairs my most recent work from the Ironbound neighborhood of Newark, NJ with Rick Charnoski & Buddy Nichols 1999 documentary film Fruit of the Vine. If you missed the opening or want to grab a zine in person, I’d love to see ya there.
The crew down at FDR has been hard at work on some crazy new stuff and they are raising money to get it done. Gino mocked up some shirts and I helped clean up the graphics while Awesome Dudes hooked up the rush order to get them ready for the fourth. Catch Gino tomorrow down at the park and pick one up for $20.
Below are some photos of the progress down at the park along with some other random shots of the park for prosperity’s sake.

This week marks 16 years of haveboard being on the internet in some form, from geocities to “haveboardwillskate dot com” to haveboard.com! It also marks 16 years since I moved to Philadelphia. There have been a few lulls in publishing over the years but I’ve been getting back into the groove of posting more regularly.
Prior to that “have board, will skate…” was just a ’zine me & my brother published out of Buffalo, NY. I appreciate everyone for their visits and contributions over the years. It’s still a little surreal when I meet people and they already know about haveboard.com. It’s a really great feeling knowing all the time and money I’ve spent to keep this thing going over the years wasn’t futile.
Stay tuned for some big plans I have coming for the site in the coming months but in the meantime, keep rolling!
Franklins Paine, Josh Nims, and the topic of legally allowing skateboarders to skate in LOVE Park is back in the news, sort of.
Eric Kenney’s show at the warehouse was absolutely a greet time. My cell phone edit from the day is below:
Brian Emig’s edit is a lot more professional:
