Greetings to another mobile addition of the Weekly Wrap in which we are going to double down and highlight some of the happenings from the past few weeks of skateboarding. We apologize for the disruption of our normal coverage last week but we were hanging out with hundreds of our closest friends Bombing down Broadway in the Big Apple. The spirit of skateboarding inherently spurs the desire for exploration of new spots to shred and invites all of the adventure that comes along with it. There is a certain satisfaction that comes from the origami that is skateboard stacking in order to leave enough room for all the camera equipment and sleeping bags that round out a well prepared Weekend Warrior’s survival kit. After you see some of our fellow community members mastering their own version of this free lance spirit, get to planning your next venture of where you are going to go skateboarding next weekend whether it be across town or across the country, get after it on top of you wiggleboard and see all the possibilities the Push Life can hold.
As the weather turns cold its good to look back on warmer times that were had North of the border in Montreal by a crew on an epic looking Skate-cation this past year. Jean Coutu is an edit put out by Dylan Holderness features and incredibly talented crew of heshers getting wild in the streets and making it look dang good.
Keeping with the street shralping theme, Real Skateboards just put out their homie Jack Olson’s part from thnku, a video by Chris Burt. Jack handles business on a variety of terrain in this montage which only further proves his technical prowess. The full video is available in DVD format, so if this part tickles your fancy, there is much more where that came from.
Many people view fishing as a mostly luck based activity however when Bill Rice goes fishin’, he takes all question of luck out of it by switching things up and taking a different approach in his latest team rider video put out by Muir Skate. This notorious road carries a heavy reputation which makes Will’s switch run all the more impressive down a tested and proven rip.
“Good” skateboarding may be in the eye of the beholder, but great style cannot be denied. Marcos Villefort of Orangatang Wheels is one of those homies who takes a unique approach to his riding but with the amount of style he oozes, no one minds one bit. Marcos recently had a battle with bed bugs and luckily for all of us, O-Tang was able to capture all of it for our viewing pleasure.

As the weather begins to turn and the leaves begin to turn ablaze with color, down hill skaters are beginning to flock to the mountains of North Cackalack for the best time of year to get some downhill skateboarding in. This pilgrimage back to the Beast Coast is becoming a trend with many speed junkies flocking to this mecca in search of thrills and spills. Keep an eye on this region to be a media producing machine featuring beauty that can only be found in God’s Country.
