Austral is a visual representation of skateboarding in the Southeastern US, with a heavy focus on the Carolinas and a soundtrack comprised of South Carolina based musicians. Austral was directed by Dorian Warneck and includes the skateboarding talents of Paul Higginbotham, Chris Cryer, George Etheridge, Ben Bertauski, Ben Lockey, Will Gaskins, Pat Bucci, Justin Fyle, Jared Lee, Kevin Cordell, David Gladkowski, Jeremy Davis, John Hill, Dan Hare, David Toole, Dorian Warneck, and Chris Gardner.
The soundtrack is made up of the musical talents of Southern Femisphere, Chemical Peel, and Pussy Wizard. Check out Fork and Spoon for more info about the bands and if you are in the Columbia, South Carolina area make sure and stop by Bluetile Skateshop, it’s the shop that keeps the whole scene together.
I’m very honored and happy to bring to everyone the online premiere of Austral through Street Canoe. A big thank you goes out to Dorian, who in my eyes, is 100% skateboarding to the bone. Skateboarding is about doing it yourself, creativity and drawing inspriration from your surroundings and Dorian has accomplished that with Austral. Enjoy.
