A skate fanatic at heart, Guy became infatuated with the colorful and angst-driven « skate life » subculture... [Voir la suite]
I’ve been a big fan of this dude since his Filmbot part years ago and it’s sick to see him put out another solid part!
Popping out of noseslides is always legit in my books!

Kyrgyzstan….what? I am betting that most people that check out Exposé Mag have no idea what Kyrgyzstan is. Kyrgyzstan is a country just below Kazakhstan (that is just below Russia). What the hell could Kyrgyzstan have to do with skateboarding you might ask? Well, Red Bull posted a video of a couple of guys road tripping through it.
In the early 80’s my brother and I traveled all over Europe. Most places we visited the locals had never seen a skateboard before. To me that was so weird since what seemed like my whole life I knew what a skateboard was. It was so foreign to me that I seemed so foreign to them. The guys in the video get the same feeling in 2014, that is amazing. Spreading the joy of... [Voir la suite]
Skateboarding is always evolving. The decks change, the wheels change, everything on a board changes over time. The pros change, tricks change, what skater rides change too. The change of terrain to skate has the most effect on the evolution of the other parts of skateboarding. Some people say it is the media that is the main key to the evolution of skateboarding but I disagree with them. Without the terrain, media could not get videos or photos to use in their media. Skateboarding went from skatepark skating in the late 70’s to ramp skating in the 80’s to street skating in the 90’s because the 70’s skateparks closed and then the ramps were taken down; not because magazines stopped converting the other...

Basically since the last and first time I went to the Boonies Skatepark, I have been on the road or injured. I really hope that I will be able to skate again soon to be able to hit the slopes and then a little session at the Boonies before the snow goes away. At least I have been seeing a couple of fresh video clips from there so other people have been hitting it at least.
Here is a clip of Technical skateboard’s free skate jam. Yes, it was free to skate the park that day.

Finding the right deck has been a big issue for me for a long time. Basically since the big boards disappeared during the mid 90’s, it has been hard to find a « good board ». It took me a while to get used to a Popsicle stick deck but I did it. From the mid 90’s until today I have purchased zero boards from a store in Montreal. I am not proud of that fact at all. Time after time I have gone to local skate shops to buy a deck but I just can not find one. Can you see me riding a 7.75″ deck? Bahaha. Until a couple of years ago, finding any deck bigger than 8″ was basically impossible around Montreal. You had to be lucky enough to drop into the shop shortly after they received... [Voir la suite]
