Welcome to the end of the work week and the unveiling of another Weekly Wrap-up hosting all of the top notch skate happening that went down these previous seven days. No longer do you have to toil over the trying task of tracking multiple URL addresses all through the world of virtual reality in an effort to get your stoke fix. We did the searching so that you could simply reap the radical reward of a good, balanced serving of pure skateboarding. This wrap up is not from concentrate and is certified gnar-ganic with absoluely no artifical fillers or sweeteners. Lets get to it!

Always keeping their media on the funky and creative side, the fellows over at O-Tang just dropped a new video that follows this rubric to a T while featuring some marquee members of their team after hours in an abandoned warehouse.
Another small step towards legitimacy with the non-skateboarding community was made when Chanel made this new fragrance advertisement featuring some actually really good ripping. Who knows, maybe this is the smell that can mask what a week in a skate van can do to you…

We all love mobbing down hills, the longer the better! We also all dread the thought of the walk back up to the take off zone which lies all the way back up the hill. To address this issue, an event has been organized by Skate Sun Peak that will allow you to sesh a track with 17 corners, most of which you must slide, with a ski lift back to the top! The event is set to go down June 11-12th and registration is open so don’t allow your self to miss out on this unique opportunity that doesn’t show its face often.

A well earned pro model was awarded to Kebbek Skateboards team rider Emma Diagle and is now avaliable anywhere quality skate products are sold. The board is a spin off on the Switchback, Emma’s favorite model in the Kebbek lineup until her own board was introduced into production, which features multiple wheelbase options and a comfortable radial drop. The board comes in two different graphics, both paying homage to the rider and designer Emma who went to meticulous lengths on every detail of this sled. They say seeing is believing and we believe you will be stoked on this sled the very moment you hop on board so why not go ahead and snag one for your self, eh?
