Please enjoy this week’s Weekly Wrap-Up news collection featuring various skateboarding tidbits we found on the internet over the past 7 days leading up to today, November 18, 2016. Seek, spark, purp-skerp, and go skate:
Let’s kick things off the wall on the video side of life with Skate Rock | Jeff Grosso’s Loveletters to Skateboarding by the dudes over at VANS. Cool history lesson on the deeply rooted ties between music & skateboarding.
Next up for your viewing pleasure is Rayne Longboards‘ Skyline Tour Ep 1 – Exploring Tokyo, Japan. The action starts at the 2min mark, but from there it’s pretty sweet and that downhill tunnel with drifting corners looks ripping!
We’d like to keep things in the East for a sec by turning you attention to this Otantang video featuring Harry Clarke overcoming his first-time fears via achieving his goals of conquering a tangled jungle road in Taiwan.
Okay, now let’s quickly roll over to Bogota, Colombia with our homie Camilo Cespedes of the Loaded Boards crew for a jammin’ roll through the brick covered sidewalks and manholed streets of his home neighborhood
