"Good friend and contributor to the mag, Seb Carayol, brings us three small edits from his “Skateboard Concerto” project he just put up on Arte Creative's website." Videos are also a big deal when it comes to putting your name out, they are also used to show love to the fans/supporters.

Dillon Diamond's insight:

Skateboard Mag is one of the most popular magazines’ in the skateboard world, next to Thrasher and Transworld. I think that the idea of magazines for the publicity of the sport is fantastic, definitely a great way to boost the popularity of an old extreme sport.
