Every year Transworld holds a competition called Skate & Create. This year Element Skateboards was invited to partake, and my handsome husband, Kirk DiAnda wrote and directed the piece.

Featuring the Element team; Boo Johnson, Chad Muska, Chad Tim Tim, Chase Webb, Ethan Loy, Evan Smith, Levi Brown, Madars Apse, Mark Appleyard, Nassim Guammaz, Nyjah Huston, andTom Schaar, with special appearances by Ray Barbee and Johnny Schillereff. Each team had to create a 5 minute video in the span of a week. They are provided a photographer, (Oliver Barton) and two builders to create any skate obstacle they needed.

The concept was to show skateboarding through snapshots of the times, creating a mini documentary. I took a satirical route with the concept and direction, loosely paying homage to the icons, fashion, and design that defined how we got here today. Ultimately, I wanted to commend skateboarders for their creativity and individuality. Since day one, we’ve been inventors that see the world differently, and that gene has been passed down from generation, to generation. The entire piece is strung together with a narrative by Chad Muska, told in the first-perosn perspecitve. I wanted to give that sencse of the narrator telling the stories of his generation, almost like a Forrest Gump-esque walk down memory lane. It’s meant to be humorous but has a sense of truth to it, too.“—Kirk Dianda
