Right when you started to think your old pals at Wheelbase had forgotten about their duty to supply the shred nation with a scheduled break down of events that have been transpiring within our ranks, we come back hard in the paint with a Multi-week Wrap-up starting right where we left off! We apologize for leaving y’all hanging but duty calls sometimes and when that duty has four urethane wheels and will let you ride it all across the world, its impossible to resist. During our travels there was a universal theme that lingered and lurked no matter what country or skate crew we encountered and that feeling was unity through community fellowship atop skateboards is a universal language that bridges all differences and gaps all barriers. Skating is a common language that we are all lucky enough to speak so after catching up on somethings you may or may not have seen before in the Wrap-up that follows, get out and go use your skattleboard to explore and communicate with your local community and beyond.
What happens when you give 4 GoPro’s to PerroPro and allow him to use them fueled by his full creative potential?? You get some of the wildest visual displays imaginable with a central theme of skateboarding which makes it mega rad to scroll around all three dimentions in his latest Horror skate movie edit. (Note:We recommend viewing this either on a computer or via the YouTube app to allow you access to the 3D experience.)
Its always great to see skateboarding used as a rallying point for a good cause and its even better to see big name brands back these vary causes like Real Skateboards did by supporting the 3rd Roll for Rob event that went off in Providence, Rhode Island a few weeks back. Peep the quick edit they did and see how you can help support Rob Pontes in his fight against ALS. Good looks homie and keep fighting Rob!!
Just dropped by the homies at Original Skateboards is a funky clip of some free style skating done by a few of the Original Pro’s amongst the beautiful back drop of Valencia, Spain. Creativity within skateboarding is highly encouraged around here and we promise this video will be an instant hit with any and all skaters who feel the similarly.
The fellers over at NCDH have done it again this time showcasing their homie Garret Gourley handling business on some delectable looking runs that one could only assume reside deep within the NC mountains. Well done y’all and we hope to come sample some of these gold mines you’re sitting on soon!

The homies over at Prism Skate Co. have been blasting the trailer for their first full edit which will apparently feature their dudes absolutely slaying some of the burliest mountain roads like it just ain’t no thang. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet then its obvious you don’t follow Liam or any of the other Prism Posse who have posted this tease of banger clips. Check out Prism’s Insta account to peep it and make sure to stay tuned for the media drop that is to come.
Our dude Khaleeq was steady livin’ behind the lens this past weekend at Central Mass 7 and the results published in his coverage of each of the three days of the event are a testament to his dedication and persistence when it comes to the skate photography game. Check out each of his photo exhibits that highlight the various events that went down during perhaps the most diverse skateboarding festival on the east coast and beyond by clicking on the hyperlinked images below. THANK YOU for all that you do homie to help promote skateboarding and bring it to the attention of the masses, you da man!
