for charlie hebdo and the freedom of expression

in the interest of freedom of press and speech, please take a few moments to reflect on the recent assault on charlie hebdo in paris. with the concept of raising awareness at the core of 43′s mission, it is important for us to recognize this was an attack on all media, publishing, and forms of expression.

stoops magazine

eby ghafarian is launching an all new york city skateboard magazine, quite frankly because it would be too awesome not to. actually it’s kind of insane that it hasn’t already existed for decades. 43 issue 003, our all new york city issue, is just a taste of what stoops will be. there is a full spectrum of influential talent, projects, and potential in new york skateboarding that 43, or any other magazine, could only scratch the surface of. sure, we have various local video projects, and they’re amazing, but to be honest it’s kind of a tragedy that so little of it is photographed and displayed. the most photographed city in the world has one of the most unexposed skate scenes.

stoops is crowd funding for a reader supported first issue. you may have heard that kickstarter can be a place for indistinctive projects that don’t serve a purpose, need, or audience other than the project starter, this is obviously not the case with what stoops is offering for our community. especially if you are a skateboarder in new york, it would be a disservice to not contribute.

check it out and spread the word!

in between shooting the skate photos in 43 003

this is a series of photos shot in between shooting the skate photos in 43 003
- with the static iv crew, subway skating with the tengu crew, and various other
ventures while skating around new york city.

these skateboarders embody a pure spirit of skateboarding, with the talents and following that influence the growing independent, authentic, and underground scene within the larger realm of skateboarding today.

all photographs by allen ying.
