southernscum This morning we released the SS tribute edit covering The 14th Annual Kentucky Battle. Attached to the deal is a commercial advertisement for the release of Vintage by SS. To promote the deal(s) here's a repost from @we_are_ss

To catch the video, fall back one post and watch the quickie, read how to view it. Heck, let us know what you think if need be. As always, remember sharing is caring. Help us show the world how the contest went down and catch a glimpse of the new clothing.

southernscum Well, you ask for it. The SS tribute edit for The Kentucky Battle just went LIVE. What a better way to properly start off a weekend.

Due to other obligations, not a whole lot of skate filming was done. But what would a SS deal be without plenty of powerful B ROLL. Prepare yourself though, it's a bit of a tear jerker.
Super shout out to all the homies who placed in every event. Digital high five to Philip Moore for his double victories both Friday and Saturday. It was a treat to see all your faces and an honor to be able to point the camera at you all. There's a cheesy write up on the vimeo page to go along with the jam. To hop straight to the video, there's a direct link on www.southernscum.com or just head right over to the SS vimeo. It will also be posted on all other SS outlets.

Once the contest deal is over, please set back and watch the newest commercial advertisement for the company. To learn more about the new goods, check out the latest post on @we_are_ss

Next time is number 15. Don't sleep. Support the rise. Share the deal!

southernscum Not extremely typical, but what the hey. The south deserves a good stand up ovation today. Once this post is made, the beginning process of a whole new project starts. So why not go into this full force. Throw it way back, to the last time the city of Atlanta hosted a Ho Ho Ho contest.
The wild man himself was in attendance and all the right people were there to watch. It was a day of dangerous choices, some pretty scary falls and a day of proper introduction to some new heads on the block. The weekend itself was quite unforgettable and has a lot to do with the southern blade scenes current stance.
There are still plenty of powerful things building up. New ideas, video projects, companies and crews have been popping up so often still.
Let us take a moment and acknowledge all the hard work and efforts that have been steady flowing out of the south for the last few years. It's such a relief to know so many people still believe.

Not positive what trick the guy was doing here. It was very cold and wet. He was skating really fast and on the left side of the jersey, there was a launch. Just incase you were wondering, yeah, he landed it.

The rise is real and very much relevant, still.

southernscum Tomorrow we will finally release the contest coverage/tribute edit for The @kyb_mmxiv (KY BATTLE)
Along with a commercial advertisement pumping up VINTAGE by SS.
Though southernscum may still be new in a lot of people's eyes, it's def got some history. So we'd like to take a post and throw it way back. It was not the beginning of it by any means, but thanks to @bulletsnmullets it became obvious what this company could do.

So throw it back, to that one time a local Nashville boutique believed so strongly in the rise, that they gave SS an entire section of their store to display the goodies. Along with a trunk show presentation party that would have left an alcoholic hung over.
Thank you for all your many blessings and all the motivation. We will rise on.

southernscum Welcome back to Waste A Clip Wednesday. Where we take a few rad skating clips and throw them down the drain.
Today's waste comes from The 14th Annual Kentucky Battle. The last spot was a down ledge that looked like it belonged in a video game. A classic southern spot that look should look familiar, if you've watched your fair share of Mark Wojda or Jordan Dale parts.
@cooleync @morciggz & @turdert all three skated very well in the contest. As you can see here, at the final spot, they were all extra comfortable on their skates by this part of the day. Can anyone name all three tricks? Surely that last one could get a conversation started.

Thanks for the show fellas. It's inspiring that you are all three still getting in there, so deep. Please never stop!
The full tribute deal should be LIVE very soon. In the meantime, feel free to grab this from the SS FB and help show the world.

southernscum This is the pavilion that hosted both a silent auction and registration for the hill bomb contest, the morning of The Kentucky Battle. As stated before, from a distance it seemed like a worship center of some sort. Though worshipping is not quite what was going on underneath. Only the building up of a historical day in KYB stories to tell.

The first official coverage edit has been released. Shot and edited by the founder of the event, Mr. Doug Williams. There's links floating all over the internet or you can just type your way over to the SS FB where you will find a direct link.

The SS tribute video towards the battle is also complete. But before we release it, you have to help us share the love. So spread some cheer and share the other videos floating around. When the timing is right, you'll get the deal.
Catch up on your info by checking out the KYB IG page by clicking the photo above. Share the latest edit and spread the word.

southernscum It's Thursday so you know what that means. Time to throw something back. Only this time, we threw something up. On the SS vimeo page that is.

Not too long ago @razorsblades released a full part on @justinchadanthony promoting what is now known as @thecultrevolution on their YouTube page.

Seeing that so many sk8rs have sworn their loyalty to @vimeo it only made sense to re-host the deal. It is officially live NOW.

So if you have not caught "The Revolution is Real" or would just like a fresh, higher resolution view of the jam, please head over to the vimeo page now. Or follow the direct link at the end of this quickie.

southernscum Welcome back to waste a clip Wednesday. Where we take a couple of good ones and trash them on the internet.
Today's waste comes from only a few days ago in Louisville Kentucky, at The Kentucky Battle.
Upon arriving to the last spot of the day, we were hit hard by a balls to the wall thunderstorm. For a matter of about 30 minutes, we set anxiously behind the building waiting for the storm to subside. With a caravan of people headed towards us to start the finals, there was already a handful of people amongst us, not in the contest, who were ready to see some skating.

Lucky for us, Brad had convinced this guy to roll this down ledge in the rain. Only to all of our surprise, Brad took his master skills of manipulation, combined them with efforts of dry rubbing the outside of the ledge with a rock off the ground. Then Kheven Schweingruber thought it made the most sense to forget about the crowd returning to the contest and lace this first try. He went back and landed it way more solid, only there was no camera turned on.
Guess ya just gotta get it in, when you can fit it in. Cheers to all the fame ignoring, lightning storm soul skaters. This ones for you.

Thank you @bradanthony for always supporting the angry youth.

southernscum Prior to this years Kentucky Battle, a race was scheduled. That's right, a rollerblading race. Down a very long, very curvy, very steep hill. There's not much more descriptive words needed here.
With 30 or so competitors, strapped with many different types of skates alike, started at the top and ended at the bottom. In the beginning of the crazy train, were the three doods you see here in this photo. Doug Williams was the first to cross the finish line. Yeah, Doug the founder of the battle.

Cooley snagged that deuce, while BLT brought home a solid third. When the race was over, we all hung out under a giant blade like worship center/gazebo. Sipped on sweet @safaicoffee and bid our paper on rare rollerblading memorabilia at the silent auction.

All in all it was an incredible morning. Lucky for you all, Roger found the urge to follow the skaters down the back bone. Who knows, maybe we will all get to view it sometime.

Props to every competitors outstanding achievements and victories.

southernscum It is a great pleasure to make this post. Here's a short story to glorify this dood properly.

Around the time David Sizemore was wrapping up his part in an issue of Rejects Magazine, a session was put together in Birmingham, Alabama. A group of us traveled south to attend the festivities and witness the production of the video/magazine in person.
On the second day, we were at a spot that was made up of a series of stair rails throughout the property. Steven Tat had decided to get busy on one of the more burly rails.

We set for a while as he did his thing. His efforts slowly ran low as the heat had us all tiring out.

Then, almost out of no where, a new face silently rolled into the picture. A tall, lanky, dood with a powerful set of dread locks joined him at the top of the stairs.
Within only a few tries, this kid ripped this down rail a new one. Example : back torque to top acid to backside fastslide.

That day, it was quite apparent, that the quiet lurking lanky kid would set out to be one of the finest gentlemen to ever rise from the south.

Spoon fed by Uncle Dunkle himself, being the sole standing participant of skating in his area many of times.
A decade later, the determination he showed that down rail, is still a hot burning fire inside him. Completely proven true within a handful of spots this past weekend in Louisville, ky.

Friday night, southernscum hosted a game of SK8 at RIOT skatepark. 30 people signed up and participated in what is probably to date, the longest most organized game of skate in history. Somehow managing to survive the deep contestant elimination list and win the game with only a single "S" against him. Philip left the park $70 wealthier, a chicken sandwich and a winning title.

The entirety of the day Saturday he kept that juice and mixed it with his casual antics. For those who were there to watch him sign his name on the city, you now understand the emotions felt towards him, that day in Birmingham. For all others, just be sure to watch the coverage edits.

Congratulations on your victories Philip. We knew you had it in you all along. Cheers, to your future.

southernscum Very rarely do simple things get posted here anymore. If you follow the gram thoroughly, you already know that quality and timing are very embraced. But, if you are one of those few people, who have supported for the long haul, then you remember a time of creative photography and spur of the moment post.

SS cutt & sew has released a couple hundred unique hand crafted garments over the past few years. But like every project, it seems to have lost it's consistency.
Lucky for you, just for the KYB2014, a grip of SSC&S was just finished. Along with a new concept of clothing, SS vintage. All to be released tomorrow morning at the contest.

So, if you are into one of a kind goods and take heart into what you wear, be sure to come over to the van, say yo and check out the deals. Do not buy these products, if your rent has not been paid.

southernscum Welcome back to Waste A Clip Wednesday. Where we take a handful of clips and waste them via the internet.

Today's trash comes from the Yankee land from above. Last weekend @stefanbrandow traveled to New Philly to attend the annual memorial contest, hosted in the memory of a late James Short. While out and about he took some time to snag a few waste worthy pieces for today's deal.
If you look for it, you can see him pulling in some of the rare YT tees that will be going into production very soon. Well, once he connects with the rest of the TBA team members and they finish up on a new project. To learn more about YT and everything to come, please click and follow the tags below. Ty for the donations Stef. It's very exciting to be starting this new venture together.
We had to spread it out somehow. Keep up!

southernscum As you might already know, the SS van and all it's voyagers embarked on a journey around the United States over this past summer. One of the stops they made was in Long Beach, California for the qualification rounds to this years Blading Cup.

Yesterday ONE magazine released a radical coverage edit of the event. Packed full of the useleSS heads and bladers alike. Not to mention a handful of cameos of the van posted up beach side at the event. It never gets old seeing that thing buried under the California sunlight.
To catch a glimpse of the deal,head on over to www.oneblademag.com and to learn more about the tour and all it's virtues, click on the useless tag below.

southernscum Throw it back, not that far, but a bit. To what's is a bit over a week away from a year, well in skating years. Not even positive what the date was last year. But one thing is for sure, it's that time again.

Go ahead and get your gear together. Make your checklist, charge the batteries and tighten up those bolts. The 14th Annual KY battle is almost here.

To learn more about the contest, the silent auction, the hill bomb and the game of S.K.8. Head over to the @kyb_mmxiv IG page and dig deep.
To learn more about the fancy gentlemen in the photo, simply click it. Try not too stare.

southernscum Welcome back, to Waste a Clip Wednesday. Where we take a clip or few and waste them via the internet.

Today's trash is once again from the great state of Kentucjy. Lexington to be exact. Yesterday a couple of us got out to snag footy for a few different online contest. Before the spot was finished off, it seemed extra proper to throw it back a bit and surf something out on this extra long balance bar.

The overpuss tip tap is an extra bonus to any of those out there that appreciate a classic wasted clip. There was one more to the road, but sometimes it can be so much more fun to add something to the wasted stock pile.
Do yourself a favor and go hang 10 on a long one today. It's a very enjoyable feeling. Ty Broof for holding it steady.

southernscum It's Monday, so why not kick it off with a solid Royal Cess Slide by Mike. The van and a couple of the useleSS doods were cruising south east, after their stop in Colorado. Mike, Sean S. and KC have a spot there, so they let them crash.

Lucky for us, there was a small amount of time to get a session in. In the middle of snagging a few for the video, Mike handled slide real quick. Thank God, Dustin was there to capture it.

So, enjoy your Monday. To any of you all who think they don't have time to sk8 anymore, take some advice from Mr. Lilly and get it in, when you can fit it in.

southernscum It is a great pleasure to release this online edit. Heaven is a halfpipe is 4 solid minutes of pure fun. Obtaining each clip was simply a treat and hanging with so many rad doods so often was exceptionally memorable.
Bowling Green, Kentucky is home to a giant concrete skatepark. For a couple of months, every Tuesday, it played host to a Tuesday Night Session. Some of those sessions were filmed. From that footy, comes this deal.

Please, do yourself a favor. Head over to www.southernscum.com and click the first link option available. After you've viewed it 3 or 4 times, click the like button and give the deal a share or two.

Big ups to all the homies for pulling hard. Skating with you all has always been such a blessing. Though we will not see each other as often, your ability to have fun on blades will always be a gift.
Love is real. When it's shared via rollerblading, you won't ever find a greater more accomplishing feeling. Never stop rising brothers.

southernscum Welcome back to Waste A Clip Wednesday. Where we take a worthy clip or two and trash them on the internet. Today's garbage is a chopped up line by the dood, Scott Hatton.

Lexington, Kentucky is the new home front that SS will pour out of. Not only is it full of great Opportunity for the brand to blossom, but it offers a solid outlet of talented skaters.
One of those skaters, goes by the name of Broof. Though it's probably not new news of his skating, expect to see a lot more of this guy via southernscum.
He's guaranteed a wasted clip or two. Rise on, we will.

southernscum It's been said, that alls well that ends well. In this case, that could not be more true. Despite a few complications with mechanical parts, the SS van has just wrapped up a solid stretch from the southeastern region of the US and finished off a cross country tour, packed full of some pretty special doods.

The UseleSS tour recently participated in its last leg of it all, The Colorado Road Trip. Now that it's over, all the passengers are slowly scattering themselves amongst, back into "normal" society. Ya know, the kind where you have responsibilities outside of getting clips and getting lifted all day long. Though it's been a thrill, all good things must come to an end.

The van itself is headed to the oh so popular location you might know of as KCMO and the number of passengers in it are dwindling as this is typed. Then south bound it becomes once again.

So to end this Tuesday's post on a glorified note, let us all take a moment to appreciate all the efforts, love and support this tour has received. All the memories made and most importantly, all the aggressive rollerblading that was a part of it. Hats off to all you useless doods for your constant updates and properly hashtagging all the way through. You each are huge reasons why this train can't and won't slow down. Rise on doods, rise on.
