Let’s grip it and rip it! Welcome to our latest Weekly Wrap-Up news collection for Nov 14 – Nov 20, ’15. We gots all sorts of fun stuff in this one, so get to perusing and tell the squad where the tastiest skate-news be–don’t let your crew get left in the abyss-of-non-skate-knowings—that’s a very bad place. Ha ha! Anywho, let the legitness get lit:
First off, Orangatang Wheels just dropped this fun video featuring a handful of rippers shredding alleys, driveways, banks, and other speedy soft-wheel-style decents in Vancouver, BC Canada.
Landyachtz Longboards builds some of the best and most diverse skateboards in the world. Jody Wilcox, the man behind Landyachtz “HollowTech” technology is featured in this rad little mini-doc feature the Landy factory in Kimberly, BC Canada, and you should watch The Best Little Skateboard Factory in The World.
The Blood Orange clan just released to edits hyping up their new James Kelly & Liam Morgan Signature Series Gloves and both are worth a gander. James’ signature flowing style always get the stoke rolling and Liam’s night skating matched with Jack Boston’s editing works out perfectly. Check em both out!
Euro downhill OG and filmmaker Yvon Labarthe just dropped this unique night edit showcasing Sony‘s new A7S low-light camera. Not sure where it was filmed (Switzerland?), but Project Moonlight is worth a pre-shred viewing fer sher.
Slide for Shelter presented by Action Board Shop & and a crew of Indiana University is a slide jam event in southern Indiana with the proceeds going to the Bloomington Animal Shelter. Ya should def watch the video based solely on them helping the kittens and puppies, but the skating is rad so the stoke is double.
