MIA Skate Shop and Coral Morphologic are psyched to announce the release of a series of skateboard decks featuring the photography of three different fluorescent corals that call Miami their home. The collaboration is a logical extension of Coral Morphologic’s view of Miami as the Coral City. A city whose cement buildings are metaphorical monuments to the fossilized remains of an ancient coral reef that once ran through it. Skaters will now be able to skate through a city of coral (recycled as concrete) on boards that reflect its bio-geologic past, present, and future. Miami, a city where vertebrate and invertebrate life-forms are forever bonded through calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate skeletons that were once enveloped with fluorescent coral tissue now form the foundation for a neon metropolis that mirrors its coral reefs. A metropolis with an Atlantean destiny, where corals will one day recolonize the streets and buildings as their own.
– Coral Morphologic (May, 2013)
Featuring: Lazaro Reyes, Joel Meinholz, Deion’dre De Veaux, Tristan Trout, John Baragwanath, Rafael Lynch, Ed Selego, Paul DeOliveira, Koki Loaiza & Danny Fuenzalida

I have been stoked on Joel’s skating for a long time. So, when there were, what seemed to be long periods of time that new footage of Joel was hard to come by, it left me wondering when I would get to see more. Then, in 2010 when Welcome to MIA, the MIA Skateshop video came out, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Joel was skating just as hard and raw as ever. Since that time, Joel seems to be everywhere. Between new footage, new sponsors, and promoting events through IamYourVillain & Bum Rush The Spot, he seems to be unstoppable. – Nicks
Check this killer footage of the *AMMO* X MIA Collab and the Bum Rush The Spot event from a couple weekends ago down in Miami.

Now that the “Welcome to MIA” premiers are all over and the film is available online & in stores worldwide, take a look at Making “Welcome to MIA”. Josh Stewart recently had a chance to catch up with Ben Gore, Joel Meinholz, Brian DeLatorre, Ed Selego, and Forrest Kirby to document their thoughts on what the process of filming for “Welcome to MIA” was like. The interview is sick and the photography, courtesy of Miami photographer Matt Roy, is amazing. Check it out.
Well, after missing both of the premiers at The Bricks recently, I finally managed to see Josh Stewart’s latest film “Welcome to MIA”. It was no surprise to me that the film is an instant classic and is already a must have for every skateboarders’ collection. But, with the Cigar City, Rising, the Static series, F.O.R.E and Friends (filmed only), and Adio’s One Step Beyond in his repertoire, I have come to expect nothing less than raw brilliance from Stewart.
Josh Stewart is originally from Tampa and with videos such as the aforementioned Cigar City, Rising, and the Static series, he helped put Tampa on the skateboarding map. So, when longtime friends and MIA Skateshop co-owners Ed Selego and Chris Williams wanted to do a shop video and finally put Miami in its long deserved spot on the skateboarding map, Josh Stewart was definitely their guy. Stewart was in the middle of filming for Static IV (Yep, Static IV), but spent the majority of the last two years completing “Welcome to MIA”.
“Welcome to MIA” gets started with a full part from “Mr. Miami” himself, Joel Meinholz. I was so stoked to see a full length part from Joel, footage of him is so hard to come by. Joel’s skating is sick and his style is unique and refreshing! Ed Selego, Forrest Kirby, Danny Fuenzalida, Paul DeOliveira, Ben Gore, and Brian DeLatorre all came through with super-good full parts also. I hadn’t really seen a whole lot of footage of Brian DeLatorre before “Welcome to MIA”, and let me just say that, his skating blew my mind! Super-Fast, Super-Smooth…keep your eye on this dude…he killed it! “Welcome to MIA” also features montages of footage from guys like Jahmal Williams, Cody Lucas, Luis Perez, Rene Perez, Chris Williams, and the rest of the MIA family and friends network!
The skating is as raw and real and diverse as the lineup of skaters. The spots are also refreshing and new, with just the right amount of crustiness we are used to here in Florida. The top-notch, signature filming technique that has become Josh Stewart’s own, coupled with the creative soundtrack, puts the final touches on another masterpiece. Well done!
