“Thar she blows!” Introducing our new Weekly Wrap-Up for August 22 through August 28, 2015. Y’all know the drill. This be the place where you’l find our collection of the past week’s videos, pics, rider and event news and more. All compiled here in one place so you can stay rad and not get lost in the fecal heap that is social media. Anyway, check it out and tell the posse:
The title of this video is cringe worthy. It’s funny because Gabby, the South African skater narrating the video, clearly identifies herself as a “downhill skateboarder”, as she should of course. Anyway, the video is a comparison of braking between both bicycles and downhill skateboards. It’s a start and worth a peep.
Comet Skateboards just dropped this video of Will Seal tearing up a beautiful road somewhere in the woods of North Carolina.
Swedish band Tussilago just released a music video produced my Maceo Frost called Ishtar X Tussiago and featuring Swedish downhiller Ishtar Backlund and a crew of others shredding down some epic hills in Norway.
The Loaded Boards dude just released a new Giant’s Head Freeride, 2015 edit. So peep that. They also dropped an edit from Guadalajara, Mexico featuring riders Marco and Yahzper showcasing an amalgamation of styles including: boardwalking, street, freestyle, and just plain dorkin’ and having fun in general.
Justin Bieber just hit the interwebs with a new skater dater themed video titled “What Do You Mean?” and it features professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler and a lady skater who we are not familiar with. Anyway, It’s pretty funny, but these two gifs Seth Brown just made are even better. Note that altered text. But yeah, channel your inner tween and get all emo with this new Biebs joint.
