Remember a while back when TWS ran that Imaginarium contest? With all the colours? And Globe won it? You should. It made for a super-sexy clip of models basted in magenta, worshipping the god Ungu while the Globe team made good of some firing Balinese beachies. Dion's filmer, Beren Hall, has put together a lil' behind-the-scenes look at the shoot. Dion's also got a new Vimeo channel which'll be hosting a backlog of all the clips he's ever posted on his Globe.tv/Dion site.

Filmmaker Charles Lanceplaine has just released a documentary on skateboarding in Shanghai, China called Shanghai 5.
The film explores the social impact of skateboarding in this thriving city of 20 million, speaking to such pros as Johnny Tang and Brian Smith who are enjoying the city's many spots.
Love Park is one such collection of ledges, marble and steps that's fast becoming an international favourite.
It also debunks a few myths and stereotypes about life in China as well, which can only be a positive thing.

“Thank you guys very much. I just want to thank the surfing community for being really loving and putting stuff like that together up (tribute video to AI, check it out here), Matt (Beauchesne) thank you.
My brother loved surfing more than anyone I know. All you people in this room, a lot of you guys up here getting awards, my brother idolised you guys, even though he might not have shown that love in the heats, or wanted to kill you, run you over. And Kelly, even though he wanted to chop your head off in the heats, he looked up to you so much, ever since we were kids. He’s looking down and – 10 world titles – he was stoked just to get three on you. Got to give it up for Kelly for those 10 world titles, man. That’s amazing.My brother, he loved your surfing…
And another thing, my brother’s wife, Lyndie, she going to be having a baby on the 8th and I’m going home tomorrow to be there for the birth. I’m going to be the father figure in his life and we’re all going to see Andy Axel Jr. soon. Yet as grieving as it sucks, but we’re going to have to live with it – my brother’s never going to be forgotten – but he’d be wanting you guys to be having a good time, you know my brother, he’d be like “whoop, whoop, whoop.” So, I know it’s hard, but let’s kill that big Gorilla in the room, or something. He’d want everybody to have a good time and enjoy tonight. I just want to thank all you guys again for being so supportive of my brother and his career. I really appreciate it. Thank you guys.”–By Simon Nicholas
