RAW TAPES: NOT ANOTHER SWAMPFEST EDIT
Jenkem Magazine
by Austin Leleu
2d ago
Florida Man content is nothing new to the internet. A quick Google search and you’ll find “Florida Man Killed in Porta-Potty,” or our personal favorite “Florida Man Suspected of Using Private Plane to Draw Giant Radar Penis.” If you search for Florida Man headlines in the world of skateboarding you’ll return with one thing. Swampfest. Yeah, we know you’ve probably seen the footage already. Quick news flash, we’re late, but hell, we didn’t even know we were going to go. We considered letting our footage dump lay to rest, especially since this is mainly a BMX event, but when you see the amalga ..read more

AN ORAL HISTORY OF THE SKATE PARK OF TAMPA
Jenkem Magazine
by Hanson O’Haver
4d ago
Since opening in 1993, the Skatepark of Tampa has slowly grown from some guys with a vert ramp in a warehouse into a skateboarding institution. It’s survived several of the industry’s notorious boom and bust cycles, outlasting hundreds of other skateparks and shops. The Tampa Am and Tampa Pro contests have become annual traditions since 1994, and while contests in skateboarding have always been a hotly debated topic, the events in Tampa have stayed a widely-praised exception. Just as the art world flocks to Miami for Art Basel and Major League Baseball hits Florida for spring training, the sk ..read more

CLOWNING AROUND WITH RILEY PAVEY, AUSTRALIA’S HOTTEST NEW EXPORT
Jenkem Magazine
by Ben Komins

Cunts, stand up! Honestly, I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say that, but whatever, I’m going to claim honorary Australian for the day. Fresh off his latest clips in Carhartt WIPs “Precious” and from a comfortable position on a cozy Los Angeles couch, we bring you Riley Pavey, 2023 SLAM Australia’s Skater of the Year and AM for WKND skateboards. I knew from Riley’s IG shitposting that he was down to clown, so I called him up to see what two terminally online 20 somethings could yap about. As it turns out, everything’s on the table. From tuxedo t-shirts to a Cory Kennedy cardboard cutout and tal ..read more

MIND FIELD, JAKE JOHNSON AND MUSIC WITH ANIMAL COLLECTIVE
Jenkem Magazine
by Ian Michna
1w ago
When thinking of a list of great music-skateboarding pairings, a few come to mind. Guy skating to Band of Horses in Fully Flared and Jerry skating to Cass McCombs in Bag of Suck are two favorites of ours, but you cannot make a list without including Jake Johnson skating to “My Girls” by Animal Collective. We’ve all seen it and sat with the same shit-eating grin because of it, and we’ve all also likely deep-dived Animal Collective to hear the songs that filled the space between “My Girls” and “In The Flowers”, the song Jason Dill skated to off the same album. For some, the album Merriweather P ..read more

JENKEM MIX 137: CITI BIKE BOYZ
Jenkem Magazine
by Adrian Michna
2w ago
There are 1,525 miles of bike lane throughout New York City and 26,000 available CitiBikes in NYC. I make the point to stress these statistics because out of all the miles of bike lane and available bikes there’s only one crew taking advantage of these numbers in a way as insane as the CitiBikeBoyz. Head honcho Jerome Peel is known for turning things like burnt cars and discarded desks into obstacles, popping over them with the ridiculously heavy public bikes. Seriously, you have to ride them yourself to realize how clunky they are. For his mix, we expected some Slayer, but were surprised to ..read more

THE STORY OF THE NAKED 540
Jenkem Magazine
by Ian Michna
2w ago
photo: pete thompson The naked 540º has long been a piece of skateboarding folklore. First rearing its ugly head (and shaft), in the 80s, Bill Weiss, who you might know from his latest venture, Opera Skateboards, brought the daring innovation to the masses, injecting extra hype by doing the stunt at random skate events. Photos have circulated for years, and it became Bill’s go-to party trick. Could he have simply learned how to open a beer bottle with his mouth or perfect a People’s Elbow table slam? Probably, but the potential for blunt force ball trauma inked this one in history forever. W ..read more

TAP IN TO THE SOUTH OF FRANCE WITH THIS CREW OF UP AND COMING SKATERS
Jenkem Magazine
by Ben Komins
3w ago
Ever since I was young, I was told that French is the language of love, which made no sense to me, but it’s one of those sayings that get tossed around so much they become fact, similar to “Early bird gets the worm,” which I still have trouble buying. “100% Love For My Homies,” a video out of Southern France, brought up the memory of this saying, and while I’ve never been to France to see for myself this crew that goes by CINQ/A brought validity to the claim. Marked by a unique use of photo collages and a well-traveled group of up and coming Frenchmen, this homie video has all the camaraderi ..read more

JENKEM MIX 136: ELISE HEDGE
Jenkem Magazine
by Adrian Michna
3w ago
As y’all already know, we at Jenkem fuck with the Genesis crew. We’ve worked on many different projects together in the past, and we’re always rooting for the Seattle homies. Recently, Elise Hedge, who you should remember from our foray into podcasting, came out with a Venture collaboration, shining light on their artistic talents. To celebrate their latest venture, (HAHA) we had Elise curate a mix, one that hops from Ice Spice to Hatebreed, giving off a true “I listen to all genres” vibe that teenagers often falsely claim while only listening to indie rock. Anywho, thanks to them I’m now lis ..read more

PREMIERE: CHRISTIAN MAALOUF IN STATIC VI
Jenkem Magazine
by Josh Stewart
1M ago
If you couldn’t tell already, we’re having Static Week here on Jenkem. To keep the hype going, we figured what better way to celebrate the long-standing independent video series than with the premiere of our friend Christian Maalouf’s part in Static 6? You’ll probably recognize Christian from when we nerded TF out at the toy fair together. We’re happy to bring you this four-minute, poppy part where he makes handrails look like puppy pet gates and the Empire State look like your homie’s house in South Jersey. Check it out, and while you daydream about the days when all videos looked this beau ..read more
