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.

Yup, we’re doing it again. Grab you dancin shoes(or more likely boots) and git yourself on down to The Red Fox Inn a week from today. Gold Town will once again be kicking out the bluegrass jams(with a few surprise guests) and there will of course be drink specials going all night. A $8 suggested donation at the door gets you a raffle ticket and additional tickets will be on sale throughout the night for $5. All the proceeds go to the Jeff Charbonneau Memorial Fund. There’ll be raffle prizes from local businesses and restaurants in addition to those from industry sponsors, Burton, Frends and Vew-Do. Hope to see you out there, gonna be a night to remember…or try very hard to.
I’m in Vermont right now and this is what it looks like. Too bad it’s not gonna last all week. Gonna be an interesting U.S. Open.
All my Vermont people you know what’s good. Many a good Memorial Day weekend memory at this spot. Cheers!
Growing up in Vermont there’s not a whole lot of concrete parks available to a skateboarder. What is in plentiful supply are mini ramps and few things are more fun than a good mini session with some friends. Luke Mitrani and Forrest Bailey got some shots in their spare time during the U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships that ought to make you rewind a few times. If you pay attention there is even a cameo by Cody “dirt beard” Rosenthal getting tech at the Brothers Park in Mammoth Lakes.
