There are some who might suggest that there’s nothing in this world better than stinkbugging cloud-9 on a drop-through deck while letting 300mph winds tickle your Teva sandaled toes. Surprisingly enough, we are going to have to disagree, and on a number of levels. But mostly because our new Weekly Wrap-Up for Sept 5 through September 11, 2015 is here. Ha ha! Please enjoy.
So first-off, Blood Orange just dropped this super funny glove video spoof featuring Liam Morgan’s homies trying to do an intervention on him and his strange and compulsive glove usage. Just watch it. ha ha!.
Nelson Longboards recently dropped this informative article with quality info about gear specs and details most skaters don’t normally hear. Worth a peep: “4 Truck Specs That Manufacturers Don’t Bother Telling You”
In radon yet intriguing skate news, Jenkem Magazine just released an interview with that one corpulent skater who tried to ollie that 13-flat-13 stair set in the rain and thusly became internet famous.

EVENT NEWS: Muir Skate is doing a Skate The State: Campaign Tour, and this image below outlines the first of three legs of the Campaign. Presidential candidate and Muir Skate owner Scott Lembach asked us to be a part of the east coast leg, so I think we’re gonna “vote yes” and join the campaign, because we really want to skate some North Carolina hills and rip the streets of New York too. Stay tuned fore more info. . .
Also the 2015 Whistler Longboard Festival is coming up soon too.
East Coast non-binary activist and hard wheel slider, Jamie Nieves, has changed teams and no longer riding for Earthwing Skateboards but rather opting to rep for No Future Skateboards. There’s for sure other rider news but we don’t know much more as we are out skating ourselves right now. Apologies.
