Starting things off with some South American fire from Black Media who just dropped a bomb edit of Luan Oliveira tearing apart his home turf in Brazil. The “homie session” vibe is strong with this one by leaving the “best sound in the world” to speak for its self.
Some unfortunate news was announced this week from Nelson Longboards who after eight years of contributing to our Community has sadly had to close shop. On their way out they created an awesome video that shows the craftsmanship and love that they put into every sled they pressed. Thank you for all the contributions y’all made and we hope for nothing but the best for everyone associated with Nelson in the future.
When the time comes to make the personal decision of what new freshie sled to pick up add Laissez Faire to the list of possible board companies to consider to fulfill this need. Featuring a recently expanded line up, LF is a Skater Owned and Operated movement that offers boards for any skater no matter what riding style they are interested in pursuing.
The concept of mini-ramp madness has always been an arena that promotes progression for every era of skateboarding but the homies over at Street Plant took a time machine hop back in time to drop an Unmodern edit of their team destroying a mini like it was 1990.
