The San Francisco GX1000 crew is a loosely organized gang of misfit skateboarders who are bound together mostly by a shared appetite for positive vibes, high speeds, and copious amounts of Northern California’s famous high-potency marijuana. Some of the crew are pro skaters. Others are amateurs. All of them are confident and freakishly physically gifted. The crew centers around Ryan Garshell, the 30-year old skate filmer whose nickname combines his last initial with the model of camera he uses: The Sony VX1000. Garshell moved to San Francisco in 2008 and has become a skate world hero for his short video edits. These mostly feature insane, jaw dropping hill-bombs. Now he is feature and Thrasher Magazine’s in-house shooter. He has a gig doing videography for Converse’s skate program, and is increasingly developing the GX1000 clothing label with his partner, Stephen McClintock. What started as a small run of merch to promote Garshell’s film projects—150 logo t-shirts and 50 hoodies—has quickly become a full-blown brand that does brisk online business and is sold at skate shops like Supreme Paris.
