Skater's got talents

I Skate, Therefore I Am -Home- Yes! isTia skateboard blog talks about skateboarders, skaters, vert, ramp, skateparks, pool, backyard pools, kidney pool, pink motel, supreme skateboard, copying, skateboarding photography, skate rock, concrete disciples, daily skate news, Vans, Venice skatepark, skate spots  and skateboard news. There are plenty of other skate websites that publish skateboard news faster than me, and better than me (Transworld, The Berrics, Thrasher, Slap magazine, skatedaily, crailtap, juice magazine, skate and annoy,…), so I won’t just give the skate news, I’ll also tell you what I think about it even if I’m wrong. Then you can conform and think like me too and impress your friends with your profound knowledge of the skateboarding industry. LOL

isTia (I Skate Therefore I Am) is a skateboard blog dedicated to presenting images and words from emerging, as well as established, skaters / photographers / writers and artists. isTia specializes in vert and bowls and pools and skateparks but if there are some good street to talk about, we go for it baby. isTia is not mainstream because vert is not mainstream. We are not here to make money; we (unfortunately) do not even try to make money. We like to promote the independent nature of vert skateboarding, focusing on what’s happening now, just outside and below the mainstream. We talk about great skaters, photographs and artists that nobody knows. Not yet. And we talk about vert legends too… And we encourage contributions from skaters in the worldwide, skate community.
If you have great skate pix, or an interesting story and you’d like to be considered for publication, please contact us. We are looking to cover pool skateboarding in Europe, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, The Benelux, Latin America, New Zealand and Australia. And the rest of the world. No kidding! Getting your work published isn’t guaranteed, but if we like your stuff, you’ll stand a very good chance; you might become the next Swift or Acosta. isTia is English only, but if you write in French, Italian and Spanish, we can translate it, don’t worry for this…

We are especially looking to cover the next Bowl-A-Rama at Bondi and Wellington next February 2011. We also need people to cover the Orange cup in Marseille on June 23-26, and the Rome World cup in Rome on July 1-3. If you think you can take good pictures and you have the talent to write a story, send us a sample of your work and you might be published in isTia. We might even help you to get a pass to be on the deck with the pros to take the pix… All images – copyright ownership remains the property of the credited photographer.

This is serious stuff we are talking about, but skate first!

Contact for contributions or general enquiries: Got any feedback or suggestions? Drop us a line!
