Culture Pattern by Ryan Lodzinski is a local video featuring some of Central Florida’s up and coming talent. Featuring Tyler Lodzinski, Dan Miles, Dustin Drakesmith, Alex Szlabonyi, Dakota Berube, Corban Wartenberg, Koal Maddalena, Kyle Fansher, Beau Haines, and Drew Fall.
The premiere took place at Stardust Video & Coffee in Winter Park, FL. Stardust is a sick local gem in the heart of Winter Park. They serve coffee, beers, tea, and small snacks. Most importantly they open up their establishment to rad venues and video premieres that bring people together. This one so happened to be for the long-awaited, 2 years in the making, “Culture Pattern”.
It was a full house, people shoulder to shoulder, a long line at the bar, and a quaint Cafe full of anticipation. The lights lowered and the premiere was underway.
Starting with video teasers for District Skateboards and The LodSquad, cheers erupted to kick off the premiere. The Opener was filmer and brother of Ryan Lodzinski, Tyler Lodzinski. A Part full of power, style, and creative use of angles on the filmers end. It’s rad to see filmers get in on the action, not only can these guys film they both rip.
The video featured a solid soundtrack, great use of effects, and the skateboarding did not disappoint. Stand out Parts were Beau Haines, Dustin Drakesmith, Alex Szlabonyi, Drew Fall, and Kyle Fansher. Overall a great video, creative, attention-grabbing, and well received by the audience.
Peering around the room, all eyes were locked on screen, accompanied by the raising of Cell phones above the crowd to fill their feeds. The video wrapped and the place exploded. Highly recommend checking out the video, Culture Pattern can be purchased here.

Not only was Compound Boardshop a huge sponsor/ supporter of Barge The Track, but they also put together this killer edit of the event! Enjoy…
It only took Yoda about 5 minutes to put together this “Quick Clip” at Providence East Skatepark in Brandon, FL.

Friday at P(a)yne Skatepark in Sarasota the weather was perfect for the Punk Rock Mini Ramp Jam. Losin’ It, Truth Inside, Slow Burn, Brainbust, Suburban Warfare, and Green Street Elite kept the tunes hard and loud all evening long, while a super-charged jam was going down on the mini ramp. Big shout-outs to Compound Boardshop, V-Town Surf & Skate 2, and Chris & Dan @ P(a)yne Skatepark for the giveaways and for making it all happen. Until next time…
Check out the photos here.
Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli) played the Straz Center in Tampa on Saturday night and our friend Zac Tomlinson was there to shoot some killer photos. Hard to believe that the one and only Black Star album came out in 1998…these dudes were way ahead of their time. Rumor has it that there is a new Black Star album in the works, slated for a 2012 release?

I originally met Alex last year at the Ring of Fire Skate Jam/ Contest at the (now defunct) Ghetto Skate Facility in Zephyrhills, Florida. Then I ran into him again at the 3rd Annual Ghetto Bowl Bash back at the end of April. Alex won the 18 & Up Sponsored Division that day, and came real close to taking the “Best Trick” as well. Alex is a ripper and one hell of a nice guy. He was also cool enough to set aside some time to do this interview for the mag. Keep your eyes on this dude, because he is coming up fast. – Nicks.
We changed the name of the “Events” page to “Florida Skateboarding Events. This page is a comprehensive resource for all of the Contests, Demos, and other skateboarding-related events all over the state of Florida. Check back often, as we will be updating this page on a regular basis.
Well, all good things must come to an end…even one of the most influential skateboarding videos of all time! I hope you enjoyed it. Now, get out and skate!
