Chrome SF // Jessie Is Sew Cool

Chrome Industries has been a huge supporter of the FOLLY vibe from day one. Can’t thank the crew enough for their love and support.

Thursday of last week the sky fell out in San Francisco. I made my way though the city when the rain transitioned from full blast to light drizzle down to Chrome HQ to grab a very needed rain coat. As Chrome recently dropped the Storm Cobra 2.0 which is BAD ASS (review on that later), I decide to nab one. In doing so I meet Jessie. Pumped she was sewing and creating bad ass bags when I happened to pop in. Really love meeting the Chrome bag creators in each hub I’ve visited throughout the years (Check out Briana’s interview out of the NYC hub for example). Jessie and I talked about the art of handcrafted goods and that it is quickly becoming lost in todays society. I referenced shooting with a manual film camera and Jessie referenced sewing your own goods. Come to think of it… I’ve never developed my own film… I should start. Anyways, Jessie is bad ass and if you’re in SF you should go give her a high-five and say thanks for your talent. I’m sure she would appreciate that.

Here are a few shots from our chat.

Massan Fluker x Matt Reyes Kill The Tenderloin

The Ride x Create vibe is strong with these two. I was introduced to Massan and Matt a few years back via Chrome Industries. Instantly fell in love with their style and serious skill shooting, skating, and riding; so when I got the chance to high-five AND shoot them in action on the streets of San Francisco, it made for one seriously killer afternoon.

I was blown away by how confident Matt and Massan are bombing through traffic. It’s on a whole’nother level. Timing lights, getting low, staying close, and screaming down steep traffic filled streets like it’s a walk in the park. Pumped on that!

Here are a few shots documenting them, their skill and their steezy steez. I hope you enjoy.

ALSO… head to Massan Fluker and Matt Reyes’ Instagram to keep up on the vibe.     

TransWorld SKATEboarding // Theories of Atlantis: A New York VIDEO

In love with this:

“We all want to take a bite of the Big Apple, but most of us are content with a summertime fling in the city that birthed skitching, skrellys, and hip-hop. The threat of the brutal winters, high cost of living, and fast-paced lifestyle keep the majority of skaters and the skateboarding industry alike tucked safely away in California. In contrast, Theories of Atlantis distribution have planted themselves directly into the streets of New York City where a lot of their riders also reside. You’d be hard-pressed to find any companies more plugged into raw street skating than Traffic, Polar, Hopps, Magenta, Isle, and the Static video series, which I quickly bore witness to pushing through the city 12 hours a day with them for a solid week. Here is a glimpse of the characters that make up the Theories family, so grab your board, stand clear of the closing doors, and meet me at Hoyt and Schermerhorn at three o’clock on the dot.”—Dave Chami
