Good evening and happy Friday, y’all! It’s definitely a bit late at night to be releasing this Weekly Wrap-Up for April 25 – May 1, 2015 , but we’ve been getting our guys and girls over to an island to skate a race and to party. So there’s that. Anyway, this week has been a busy one as the community is now mobile, and riders are traveling all over the world for events and sessions and filming. The moving and shaking has begun!!!
Speaking of moving and shaking, Orangatang rider and East Coast ripper, Micaela Wilson just shook things up with this rad edit featuring some seriously fast downhill slide action. This lady shreds hills like nobodies business!
The Bustin Boards homies are dropping new boards left and freakin’ right up in here! This week they launched the new 2015 Sportster lineup and it’s looking tasty as funk!
What ya know about them “No Hand’s Down” downhill skateboarding races? Yummy! Didn’t Liam predict such things like 15 years ago when he was 3, I’m diapers, and switch checkin’ Claremont in his stroller?
Video of the week : “Endless Knee Slide” with Laurent Perigault & Alexandra Kubiak Ho-Chi:
As we mentioned last week, event season is pumping, and rolling in full swing!!! Most of our crew are already on the island of Catalina for the Riviera Skateboards’ Catalina Island Classic which begins tomorrow morning. We’ll be streaming live all day tomorrow and Sunday via the Periscope app, then we’re headed off to NY for Comet’s Ithaca Slide Jam — and on the horizon we have the Maryhill FOS and Giants-Head Freeride sure to get you stokin’ harder than a bonfire on the beach with the bros—get registered—get pitted. See you there!
More details on the Keep On Tuckin‘ tour 2015 coming real soon!

For instance, a new Blood Orange Alpine Series wheel review , as well as some other rad shizzle you can navigate via our home page.
