I’m moving the dslr aside and trying to focus on just having fun and capturing raw skating. More elaborate edits coming very soon. Being so, the crew and I decided to feature a new segment called: Random Shit which is exactly what the title suggest. Aside from being entirely random, these clips and or edits are exclusive to the OD Daily Grind blog. You may not be able to view this on your phone but anyone with a modern day browser should be able to feast on our bullshit—soon to be videos.
Till then, I leave you with a clip from a soon to be edit entitled: Planking on your mom.
Hope you’re as excited about this as I am.

I’m happy to welcome Ryan Loewy to the OD Crew. I’ve been trying to build ODNY as a collective of people with aims to achieve quality in the areas of skating, design, photograhpy, video, and apparel since 2006. With my obligations increasing dramatically since then, It’s impossible for me to run all aspects of the brand and site at this point by myself. Especially with my primary focus being apparel and making edits on the OD site. That being said, I couldn’t think of anyone better than Ryan to help out with this large task of capturing our NYC scene. His work is amazing and he’s been a prominent photographer in our scene for some time. Small contributions of his include covering most skate events and shooting photos with locals when ever he can. He also helps out other NYC outlets by spreading the word on the latest NYC content on be-mag.com. He’s been a contributor to be-mag for a while now and has even contributed to I Roll NY and Skatelife which is great. Be on the look out for his photography here on the OD site or his ramblings on the Daily Grind blog! I trust he will bring some killer stuff to the table.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Ryan’s work, I leave you with a few stills of Ryan’s latest project entitled: NY Rollerbladers. His aim is to capture every skater in the city! Gotta catch ’em all!
You can view more of these bomb shots on Ryan’s Tumblr. Drop a comment to share your thoughts or email Ryan personally at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A short tight edit featuring James Macay. A resident of Queens, NY James is known all over the city for putting in work whether it be for footage or getting photos, he’s always on top of the ball and down to hit any obstacle.

Peep this dope edit from Lari Del Lago, a Venezuela native who was here in NYC a while back. I’m sure most of NY knows this Lari from the tons of shredding he did all over NY, especially during the Lets Roll NY sessions. I’ll be heading down to Ecuador later in February to cover the scene out there so you will be seeing more of my friend in the near future.
Check out this sick edit by New York native Sean Grossman. It’s a compilation of clips gathered by: Sal Zaso, Dave Fitz, Austin Sullivan, LaRosa and myself(DT). Sean is one of the coolest bladers I know and he’s always down to gather materials and skate the most unconventional spots. Check out the intro! ODNY! Be-mag edit coming soon!
Dominik Wagner sent us a link via Facebook, showcasing his thesis project entitled: Wasteland. A series of shots captured to bring the lifestyle of skating through Dominik’s eyes. These photos came to be during Dom’s stay in NYC a few months back. Aside from being a very talented skater, he’s also doubles as a very gifted photographer.
From skating road rash, rolling “cleanliness”, and eclectic personalities, these photos capture it all. These photos of skating and everyday routines, really come to light through D-wags photography by setting the tone and bringing forth composition and texture to give you a sense of the daily culture and characters that are part of our scene. Dominik was awesome enough to talk about his latest project with us. This book marks Dom’s graduation from Lette-Verein Berlin where he is now certified as a photodesigner. He will actually be coming back to NYC on a six month photography internship this summer.
Wasteland is currently in the process of being published: more info coming soon.
