Antihero's "The Body Corporate" Premiere Photos

Skateboarding is more than just rolling around on four wheels, it’s a way of life. For many skaters, it’s the only way. Antihero embodies this mantra and their tour articles and videos are always much more than tailslides and grinds. There’s a real human element to the videos, real life struggles of living on the road and how skateboarding brings us all together. From the crew that brought you Tent City over a decade ago, Six Stair productions was on the tour again and this time they headed to New Zealand. Not just documenting what went down but to live and skate with the team for a two week journey through life. The Body Corporate is the resultant video that accompanies the Reality Breakdown article in the August issue of Thrasher. Here are some photos from the premiere in Los Angeles that took place in the back lot of Six Stair productions. If you are in the Bay Area, catch tonight’s premiere at Lower Bobs and tomorrow night they will be showing at Burnside in Portland, then Marginal Way in Seattle. No guest lists, no tickets, just show up and enjoy the show. —Joe Hammeke
