In the finale of Keith Hufnagel’s Epicly Later’d episode, Keith juggles the responsibilities of pro skating and starting HUF—the brand that began as a backup plan, but took on a life of its own. He also looks back on some of the people who helped him most over the course of his career, and begins to do the same for the next generation of skaters.
Epicly Later’d – Keith Hufnagel, Part 1
Part one of the series is a look back at Keith’s formative days in early 90s New York City. Before HUF, and before everyone and their grandma had a pair of weed socks, he was just a kid, busting his ass to get sponsored.
To make this episode we sifted through a treasure trove of Hi8 and VHS tapes, including raw Keenan Milton and Gino Iannucci footage and an (almost) never-before-seen Fun Skateboards video. We hope you like it.
Epicly Later’d – Ed Templeton, Part Five
In part five, we take a look at Ed’s life as an artist. From being coaxed out of hoarding his early paintings in Huntington Beach to confronting the homophobia of the 90s New York skate scene and finally finding success with his Teenage Smokers series, Ed’s art career has been defined in much the same way as his skate career—Ed just does Ed until people get it.
Epicly Later’d – Ed Templeton, Part 2
In part two of our Ed Templeton episode, Ed takes us through joining Schmitt Stix Skateboards, losing his virginity to the sound of the Smiths, and putting out his first video part in New Deal’s highly influential Useless Wooden Toys video. Enjoy!
Ed Templeton has been a super-obvious choice for Epicly Later’d since the early days of the show. Maybe that’s why it took so long for us to do it. The man is like a skate historian—one benefit of his relatively straight-edge lifestyle is that he has what we like to call “sober memory.” He can recall everything from his life growing up in Huntington Beach, California, onward. He also had no boundaries in terms of how personal he would go for our interview. This episode was a big one for us. Enjoy!
Epicly Later’d – Theotis Beasley Part 1
In part one of Theotis Beasley’s Epicly Later’d episode, we check out Theo’s old stomping grounds in Inglewood, CA and recap his early skating days, from feeling like he had to hide his skills as a kid to a chance meeting with Andrew Reynolds.
Epicly Later’d – Geoff Rowley, Part 2
In part two of the Geoff Rowley series, he talks about moving to California with the Flip team, skating with the Tempster, shooting pics with Sturt, and how slamming is almost as good as the make.
Epicly Later’d – Geoff Rowley, Part 1
For part one of the Geoff Rowley episode we checked out his hometown of Liverpool, England, and also went to London and Southbank to meet with some well known names in British skateboarding.
