Stu Graham has no problem sharing what crops up in his head. He works in talking shit the way other artists might work in oils or clay, it is his true medium, he’s a master!
Stu teams up with local legend Jorix Van Waesberge to embark on a wee tour of Amsterdam and delve deep into Stu’s life while hitting up the local hot spots. This batch of WebFodder was filmed while Stu & I were filming for his part in Creature’s last video CSFU. Much has changed since then, like his deportation status, the relationship with his alter ego “The Ogre”, & the recent news of a new Creature video out in fall 2015. Enjoy getting to know Stu Graham & please like, comment, and share this content. Cheers!
Check out Rob Maatman in his exclusive video part from the 2015 Damage Control movie.
I have had the pleasure to spend much time with Rob over the years while I was living in the Netherlands. He is one of my favorite skaters to watch, chill with, and film with his laid back style, consistency of a well tuned machine, and speed, hot, nasty, badass speed. This footage was compiled from a road trip we ventured on through out California sponsored by Solid93 in 2013. Take heed and keep your eyes peeled for this guy and if you’re lucky enough to jump in on a session with him you will know what I am talking about.
Creature skateboards pro Taylor Bingaman pays a visit to the Marnix bowl while in Amsterdam to enjoy some rest & relaxation and a little session with local lurkers Erwin Prent & Jerry Exmann before embarking on his European extravaganza the #biggseuroskatecation in this issue of Special Delivery #2. Don’t get left behind, follow Taylor Bingaman on Instagram to stay in the fold on his latest adventures.
The Ginger Army General himself Div Adam lurks into Amsterdam & stops by the skatepark for a wee session, before its demise in 2014. See Div futer around & execute his signature the “handbrake”. So if you give a shit and want to know more, here is the situation report on the back end of this story. Amsterdam has gone through some big changes in the last couple years, and the government has implemented its Degentrification plans for the “progress” & “development” of the city. In Layman’s terms this means what made Amsterdam a unique, free, fun, exciting, and creative city is now vanishing by the systematic closing of coffeshops, evicting rightful tenants from affordable housing for commercial advances, a system of laws, rules, & regulations full of conundrums governed by a right wing political party, etcetera etcetera. The Amsterdam government and its complete lack of support & empathy only to sell out to the highest bidder has created a ripple effect and is being felt by many but the hardest blow was to Amsterdammers. One of its first victims was skateboarding and the closing of our local Skatepark Amsterdam. I am fortunate and have had the pleasure to spend many hours at the skatepark and with Div’s help & the evil genius of Maloki we created this video as a testament to the “Goede tijden, Slechte tijden.” & injustice we share as a skateboard community. So go out there and Support Your Local Lurkers, Your Local Skate shops, & Your Local Skatepark builder.
