What the fuck happened to this guy:
Sandro is the brainchild, co-founder/owner, creative director and janitor at Color. An art school drop-out he got his start early in life doing graphics for skateboard companies while designing his high-school year book and slanging tee shirts, chips to crack Playstations and fake IDs. He’s proudly not on Facebook and lives with his lovely girlfriend Julianna in Vancouver BC.
Skaters around the lower mainland (Vancouver) will be convening at the Ladner skate park this saturday for one last session at this legendary park. Ladner stands as a milestone in skatepark design, being the first of its kind in a lot of elements. It was second home to Mike Hastie and the rest of the Red Dragons for a while including Rick McCrank (seen in above video). Details on the park changes can be found here.
Mike Mo, Ernie Torres, Justin Brock, Heath Kirchart, Jose Rojo and many more... Where? Kansas City, that's where. Find out why, here.
This friday the Astoria, Vancouver plays host to the second RAD TIMES. This is a video by Color friend and contributor Aaron Chan to get your tweaked before the weekend.
I've never been on the receiving end of Rich Odam's camera (for obvious skate ability reasons), but as a skater I can imagine him being a really great photographer to shoot with. He's just so nice! Actually, he's probably the filmer's favorite - he doesn't seem to mind them getting right in there from time to time. Check out his feature up now at skatenewspot.com, here's some of my favourite photos from Rich form back issues of Color.

You might recall Contributor from the "Smile On Your Brother" art show that traveled the country last year, raising money to send skateboards to underprivileged kids. This year the goal is much the same, but the concept is a little more complicated... don't let that scare you though because it very well could include you!
