This week is a mixed bag of skate goodness—everything from park ripping madness to hill bombing delights—street ripping too! Welcome to our latest Weekly Wrap-Up news collection featuring skating stuffs we found on the webs over the previous 7 days leading up to today, November 4, 2016. Lurk it and enjoy.
Kicking things off we have Evan Smith via Thrasher Mag in a video titled Rough Cut: Evan Smith’s “Zygote” Part . We see this guy in Long Beach now and again and just the other day while sipping a Rose Park coffee he strolled up barefoot with the remnants of henna on his feet. Anyway, that has nothing to do with anything, but this dudes skills and limber style with be studied by skaters for years to come.
We saw this DH vid in the socials and it also landed in our inbox too. We peeped it and it’s the straight-up-legit backwoods downhill shredding that one would expect from Comet Skateboards and North Carolina Downhill. Anyway this vid features Garrett Gourley. Peep it and get some this weekend.
Our homies at Bonzing Skateboards have been getting out and hitting the open roads a lot lately. In this vid, Bonzers Adrian Da Kine & Alex Sucala get rad and enjoy the doing.
