Ho! Ho! Bro! & Happy Holidays, y’all! Welcome to our latest Weekly Wrap-Up news collection for Dec 12 – Dec 18, 2015.
Kicking things off this week we have an inspirational year-end compilation edit featuring Joey Exton skating hills, parks, and the streets. This low-fidelity video showing Joey’s progression and steady shredding over the year reminds us of what it’s all about: FUN and getting out there and skating every day and skating everything. Thanks brotha Joey for the reminder!
Mike Vallely over at Street Plant Skateboards just released a never-before released video of him and Ed Templeton touring the U.S.and doing demos for New Deal Skateboards way back in 1991. Skating starts at 7:40.
This video features Paul Gratland of Landyachtz hitting some Cali hills and was filmed by another badass downhiller named Noah Fischer. Peep it!
