Happy Friday, y’all!
As skaters from the craters of the couch potaters, we would like to cordially welcome you to our lastest Wheelbase Weekly Wrap-Up for May 9th – May 15th. A grip of videos and other such infos have been released this past week, so let’s get to all of it directly:
First off, our homies over at Caliber Truck Co. have just dropped number 1 (Featuring James Kelly) of a total of 5 Grade “B-sides” videos. 4 more of these tasty b-side edits will be released throughout this beautiful month of May, so stay tuned as they are sure to provoke the stokem.
Next up, we’d like to let ya know that the Landyachtz crew will be taking full advantage of the potential of the Periscope app and will be streaming live at this weekend’s Danger Bay 14 event up in Canada-land, which is going on throughout this entire weekend. They’ve already actually been streaming with Wolfgang Coleman, Riley Harris and friends . Anywho, follow Landyachtzlongboards on Periscope and enjoy their live stream shenanigans.
The dudes at Thrasher Magazine just dropped a rad downhill edit filled with some gnarly technical hill bombs that are sure to get any ripper riled-up and the helmet Nazis locked and loaded.
On a much more safety-inclined note—yet nonetheless shredtastical—Orangatang & Griffin Gravel just released a fun little edit of one of Griffin’s personal flow-bros, Ken Komatsu shredding around the Asian districts of Vancouver, BC and the hills that hide behind it.
So maybe you’re like us and ya heard the rumors that Duane Peters is on Gullwing Trucks these days. We’ll we’re here today with confirmation that DP does in fact ride for Gullwing now. And we are stoked to share with you the new DP ad shot my the elusive and legendary, Daniel Harold Sturt. Our dude Andrew Mercado also let us know that Duane has a full video part dropping this summer as well. Disaserously Dope!
In other Mercado-fueled news, No Future just dropped two (1 & 2) new edits featuring some Colorado skate/crusto action via Nikolai & Cameron Lawrence in Denver on 420. If you like to both “purp” and “skerp”, then definitely sit back, spark up the interwebs, and puff on these two videos.
Cloud Ride just released this out-of-this-world video showcasing a mustachioed space dude talking about, skating on, and getting pretty weird with their Mini Slides and Mini Ozones wheels. Do watch. Super fun!
