Welcome to our latest Weekly Wrap-Up skate-news collection for the past week ending on 3-03-2017. Skate through this collection get hyped for a great weekend of skating & creating.
First off this week, we have some homie content from the NoCoast crew of Oklahoma who recently assembled for a DH meetup at their local hairpins with friends from 8 different states showing up to skate, camp, and explore. Here’s a video, or two, and some photos of that excursion. Next up we have a tasty new NCDH edit of Max Vickers that is definitely worth a gander. JENKEM is steady dropping raw street content weekly, and this new “Big Kids” by Otto Ray (Bonus Tracks) edit is some real-ass-raw-dog-ish to get any skater hyped to take it to the streets. Team Broke Off also just dropped this new edit featuring their time at the races in Puerto Rico. And last but not least, Arbor Skateboards just released this welcome to the team DH video edit of Will Smallwood hitting Vancouver, Canada and featuring some serious switch style slide combos.
