If you’re like JENKEM, you first saw Sunny when the trailers for Mid90s dropped. His performance in the film was undeniably good, regardless of how you felt about the movie overall, and the role turned him into a bit of an overnight celeb. He got a lot of attention from kids who were fans of the movie, but it also put him in the spotlight as an up-and-coming skater with sponsors like Illegal Civ and Adidas.
In JENKEM’s newest Hanging Out With, they caught up with the 15-year-old and visited a psychic to see what’s projected to be next in line for him.
Although it’s a quickie, the Yardsale crew filmed this video on a random night while they were hanging out at their offices, making a ruckus, getting some food, and skating some makeshift ramps, presumably while “properly pissed mate.” This video may not be as in-depth as the one of Jenkem’s visit to the Pass~Port offices in Sydney was, but it still offers some insight into the overall spirit of the brand and where they actually come from. Featuring Jake Church, Curtis Pearl, Dan Kreitem, Zak Mayell, Rafski and Josh Church.
It hasn’t happened in a while, but every so often a perfect storm of skate opportunity brews in New York, and you end up getting to do things like spend the day with Oski Rozenberg, Fred Gall, and a full pipe in New Jersey. – JENKEM
Werner Herzog is a pillar of cinema—a pioneer known for his prolific output, quick wit, and uncommon approach to film. He’s a guy who brings a true sense of uniqueness to an industry increasingly overrun with superheroes. But what does he have to do with skateboarding?
Florida native Mike Mag headed down to South America to forget about the burdens of life in The States, and to film an entire part at spots found while traveling down the Amazon River.
The title of Mike’s part is a slight give it away to his inspiration, but if you are unfamiliar with film director Werner Herzog, you might not have caught the reference to his film Fitzcarraldo, or the accompanying documentary about how it was made, Burden of Dreams.
Brandon Turner has come in and out of the skate spotlight over the years, but if you kept up with his output over the course of 2020, then you saw him shock the entire industry and redefine what we thought skaters were capable of. Take a look behind what went into one of the best skate career resurgences of all time.
Four days, unlimited beers, and one trashed AirBnB later, Jenkem is proud to present “Make The Call”, a little video documenting skateboarding, spot building, and debauchery in the South with the Levi’s Skateboarding crew and our very own Fred Gall. Featuring Marius Syvanen, Dan Plunkett, Josh Matthews, Al Partanen, Pat Moran, Joey Pepper, Local homies, Bad behavior! and Fred Gall.
