Creativity runs in the Mull family. I was fortunate to have the pater familias, Pete Mull, for an English teacher in high school, his passion for film put me on the path to where I am today. His sons, Dave, Steve, Tom and Charley have long been doing some of the most unique and interesting work within the skate world.
It makes me so hyped to see so many spots I grew up skating approached in a different way. There aren’t a ton of options for skaters in Vermont, certainly more now than there was a decade ago but it’s still pretty sparse out there. The Mulls and their friends have always made the best of the world around them, resulting in raw and entertaining skating.
I hope this film gets lots of exposure, it’d be well deserved. These guys have a different way of looking at things and I think skateboarding needs that now more than ever. Hell, the world at large needs that now more than ever.

I opted for the Manchester print but there is plenty of other choices such as Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. If only these rail systems actually existed. Thanks to 10Engines for the heads up on these.
Vermont Skateboards recently hosted a backyard bbq skate jam at my buddy’s ramp in scenic, sunny, southern Vermont. Local legends Chris Waker, Jimmy Goodwin, Nick Bell and Steve Mull all put down some nice trickery for the crowd while Dan Smith probably drank more beers than anyone whilst still skating. I’m bummed I missed it but lucky for me I’ll be taking a trip back that way next week. The upstart company will be hosting a game of S.K.A.T.E. on Saturday, August 7th at the Dana L. Thompson Memorial Recreation Park in Manchester Center, Vermont. If you’re in the area and wanna participate or just check out what is sure to be an interesting scene you can find more info right here. It’s good to see the skate scene so alive and well these days in the soVT area as it was struggling for many years. Maybe someday the town of Manchester will get it’s head out of it’s ass and build a legit concrete park but I wouldn’t count on that anytime soon.
