Welcome to our latest Weekly Wrap-Up for August 8 through August 14, 2015, where you’l find videos, pics, rider and event news and more. All collected here in one place so you can stay rad and not get lost in the white noise that is social media. Anyway, check it out and have a great weekend, y’all.
Yo, so let’s kick things off with one of our favorite videos of the week featuring Tanner Morelock ripping down some hills in Rado. This vid makes great use of multiple angles and we think it’s an example of what a quality DH video should consist of. Peep it and let us know what you think.
Loaded Boards loves to keep the youngin’s hyped and learning new trickery. This week they released this trick tip video of Justin Gallitz showing skaters how to do backside big-spin.
Team Bonzing is always Bonzing and this video encompasses the best of downhill skateboarding and skateboarding in general: ripping with friends, exploration, DIY filming and editing, camping, FUN, and more fun with friends. It’s titled Riding Sideways and you should definitely peep it.
Our homie Brad Parker and his sponsor Riviera Skateboards just released this rad video titled Riviera Skateboards: Buck N Radical Adventures featuring a recent trip he took to some spots and hills with his homie Buck and with his doggie Rusty Thunderpaw. We think there’s more to that name but it’s Friday . . Anyway, the vibe is similar to the video mentioned above, but this one’s even more crusty, with more homemade stuff, minibike follow-runs, and beer too. Crust + gnar = whatyaneed.
Wakawakawaka is another video we really like this week and it was made by the Nocoast Skate homies and features Chandler Benton & Austin Duncan having a fun run while Kyle Ramsey gets weird on the mic.
