Greetings from the road—See See Motor Coffee in Portland, Oregon to be exact. Anyway, we wanted to get out of tuck real quick in order to drop our latest Weekly Wrap-Up for June 20th – June 26th, 2015. So, without further ado or bro-hype, peep this week’s news-worthy goods:
First off, we just received this image from one of our East Coast Wheelbase squad members and the scoop is that this thing is somewhere in NYC and that it looks like a fun ride. Word also has it that there’s a GIF floating around too. Well, would you pump this pumper?
Next up we’d like to share with you many of the rad videos we found this week:
Arbor Skateboards also just released a new product profile video for their Hybrid deck.
The Family Picnic race just went down in Vermont (Did you peep our live periscope coverage?). That being said, here’s the official event video presented by Original Skateboards and hosted by Push Culture.
In free-stuff news, we just caught-wind (no, we did not break wind! #sbd) that there is a rad Road Rider “Shred Mags” wheel giveaway going on here: Click This! A new winner will be announced each Friday, starting June 26th for the next 4 weeks. Four (4) chances to win!

If not, peep the flier, get registered, and click this dope Kris Haro art for the event and to peruse all of the tasty details, and for a chance to win a free registration, or a trip, or a million sets of wheels, or something equally bodacious.
Double also, our Keep on Tuckin, 2015 tour is on day 6 and we are currently in Portland, Or and head tout to the woods now and then Maryhill, and lastly, Giant’s Head Freeride. Keep up to date on all that we are doing via our daily live streaming feeds from the Periscope app as well as Instagram and Facebook. We’ll also be posting multiple photo and textual articles from all our tour stops here at wheelbasemag.com launching shortly.
A huge shout-out to Scott and the Muir Skate crew for letting us use the Muir Van for the trip, and also a hardy handclap and homie-hug to all of this year’s KOT, 2015 tour supporters: Arbor Skateboards, Push Culture Apparel, & RDVX Grip.

In rider news/gossip, a bunch of riders at the Maryhill Festival Of Speed, 2015 got robbed at the camp site and they are super bummed. Sounds like 10 plus boards, 4 helmets, and multiple leathers where jacked on Wednesday night out of tents. In fact, one South American homie was completely cleaned out. Here’s one of the quotes we found from Tracy Miller via Facebook:
Just heard from Simon Sturrock, one of our riders who has traveled all the way from South Africa to be at Maryhill “Festival of Speed” that the campsite got pretty cleaned out last night….His board was stolen so he doesn’t have a ride for the race. He said about 10 boards, 4 helmets & leathers got taken last night. What the Hell?! Everyone keep a lookout on the used sites! How utterly pathetic – I am so pissed.
When we know (we get there on Sunday from finals) we’ll provide an update. We hope all is recovered. . .
Video of the week : Blood Orange “Black Thane Limited”
