BLUNT | BERLIN





Part Two of the Blunt Euro Street Tour had Flavio, Jon, and Jessee riding in Berlin, Germany.  A flurry of tech bangers beheld the the historic city, as the guys rode spots straight out of a dream.  Both Jon and Jessee kill it on one wheel harder than pretty much anyone.  Jessee's peg five turnaround was so crazy.  Flavio's whip ice heel was one of my favorite clips too.

Cherrybrook





Sean Furze broke out the camera at Cherrybrook skatepark to film the Friendly boys just doin their thing.  This is definitely a chill session, but with these guys their chill sessions are still heavy.  Enjoy the shreddage from Kevin Austin, Jon Archer, and the rest of the Hat Gang.

Sean Cardwell Destroys Black Ninja in 4 Minutes, 20 Seconds.





You guys remember Black Ninja, right?  The Youtube skateboarder who claimed to "master" scootering in minutes?  The dude is like a caricature of himself, reflecting the general views of a large part of skateboarding (120k subscribers is no joke) in some sort of sad, exaggerated way. You can tell I'm a big fan.  So Sean Cardwell, of Grape Slushies/Woodward fame, made this video to parody his "Skater Masters Scootering in Minutes" video, and does it perfectly, even down to the Youtube description.  I felt like I was watching a Jon Stewart clip.  Kudos to Sean.


FRIENDLY'S LUX - REECE ALDERTON





Reece Alderton came through with a super solid part in LUX.  Gap to rails, big gap tricks, high speed lines and grind/manual combos, all with his own style.  Give it a watch.

BLUNT | LONDON





US riders Jon Reyes and Jessee Ikedah joined French Envy rider Flavio Pesenti for a tour around Europe to hit spots and parks.  Their first city was London.  Jessee really puts on a show at that wallride spots, he merked it.  I was psyched on Flavio's fakie feeble hop up fakie nose manual too.  Next video will be featuring the best of Berlin.

Terry Price | Woodward East





It's so awesome to see Terry still out there killing it.  The Maddgear OG spent some time out at Woodward in Pennsylvania and filmed this in two days.  Love the classic big transfers, and he always manages to bring some surprising tech tech tricks too (manual to scooterfakie, double whiplash). Nice start to the weekend with this one.

Throwback Thursday: Stefan Hefner's Opus Part

When I first saw footage of Stefan, I instantly became a fan. He's an awesome rider, and an even cooler person. Back when Lucky was known for having some of the heaviest hitters in the street game, it was Stefan that got the most attention from their full length video, Opus. To this day his section is still golden. The combination of Tyler Wheeland's filming, and Stefan's riding is remarkable. Throw in a perfect song choice, and well done editing, and you have a classic. Check it out below if you haven't seen it before. Hell, even if you have, watch it again.



Detatched ribon cable in NYC





Olivia Monks recently took a trip to NYC to film with the homies.  Unfortunately her mic started malfunctioning so she decided to mute the clips and put em on a timeline to make this video.  Kong, Tpritch, Mike Anesini and more are all featured.

Johan Grunwald goes down under | BLUNT





Late last year, Johan traveled to Australia for a backpacking trip and was able to meet up with the Friendly crew to ride and film.  Over the course of five months, he was able to stack these clips with the gang. Clip at 2:22 was super sick, felt like he was never gonna stop.  Johan is currently in New Zealand and is set to meet back up with the Friendly boys, definitely looking forward to whatever he puts out next!

Jared Jacobs - for Lucky 2015 || B-sides





Damion Black uploaded the B-sides of Jared's 2015 Release for Lucky. It's so good to see well filmed SD scootering clips, as well as the process behind trying a trick, something you don't see too often Often when watching the pros you feel like they are able to land every trick first try, so videos like this put it back into perspective and are more relateable. Jared also recently just left Lucky, it'll be cool to see where he ends up.

LONDON STREET JAM V2 2015 | OFFICIAL VIDEO





The second London Street Jam went down recently and Jake Hughes was there to document it.  It's awesome to see all the talent coming out of England as well as all the usual big names killing it.  Props to Tyler Bonner for taking home the grand prize.

FRIENDLYS LUX - MARK ABBOTT





The next installment to the LUX video is of Mark Abbott.  This New Zealander has always ridden with his own style, and I really enjoyed watching his part.  Doing tricks down gaps you'd never expect to see in street, or hitting a line switch, or yanking a noseblunt into a steep bank, this section is full of refreshing surprises that help Mark stand out from the rest.

UA x BCN





UrbanArtt's Javi Trepat was joined by Dani Cardona in this rad night sesh video in Barcelona.  They hit up a really fun looking plaza and both of them killed it.  Great job on the filming and edit as well and you have a nice video to start off your Monday morning.

Dan Barrett - Sig Homie Grip Promo Video





With the release of the Dan Barrett Signature Hella Grip, the boys in the Bay knew they had to come up with something special to mark the occasion.  So they flew Dan out for two weekends of riding, and somehow were able to come up with a DVD worthy part in that short time.  It's really a testament to how good Dan is, and always has been.  Not only that, but 2b and Zach Fuller (as well as Brendan Kelly) killed it behind the lens.  Be sure to view this one not from a phone (preferably Chromecast/internet viewing TV app of your choice) and get stoked.

Throwback Thursday: Brooklyn Banks Jam 07

A Throwback this Thursday to a Jam that ended all too soon. The Brooklyn Banks are one of the most well known spots in the world in action sports. So everyone was stoked when some of the top riders in New York put together the idea of having a Brooklyn Banks Jam. The Jam was a complete success. This is from 2007, and the amount of OGs that made their way to the banks is amazing. I really wish these Jams could have kept happening, I could have easily seen the BB Jam being right up there with the Paris Street Jam. Enjoy this throwback.

Look out for clips from the one and only Stevon Wilson as well. He threw down the Front Bri, and the Tuckerdriver down the set. R.I.P Stevon.

Dissidence Street JAM V6





So this year the Dissidence jam did face some rain, but they managed to make the best of it finding cover at an indoor spot.  After the tech bangers concluded, they moved out to hit the streets for the big sets, a powerslide contest, and the double kink ender rail, made by Dissidence specifically for the jam. Didine Terchague walked away with the big prize but I think we all know Kenny Griffin was the real winner for that gap to lip.

Cuff Crew- mustard.





The Cuff Crew is an upcoming group of riders out of Philly.  This is some footage they're getting rid of while filming for a future project.  Good to see new blood rippin it out East,
