J’ai commencé à faire du skateboard parce que c’étais le best.
30 ans plus tard, c’est toujours le best mais parfois, rarement, je laisse du random bullshit obscurcir ma vue et lorsque ça arrive, je fais du yoga et check des vieux vidéos de skate.
Jeff Grosso me fait toujours plaisir. Le dude est allé en enfer and back et il skate encore comme un dieu sans jamais parler de jésus.
Grosso a un nouveau soulier sur Vans. Check it out.
Et voici des random vidéo parts de pas juste Grosso tirées de Speed Freaks et Streets on Fire. Les 2 derniers clips sont de A Reason For Living et they mean a lot to me.
And here are 2 personal favorite from 1990’s A Reason For... [Voir la suite]
No, this is not about a story of Mercier getting shot, he only just rolled another digit on his age odometer. For anyone counting, yeah he is old now. For his 40th birthday he took the family skating. P45 and then the Pipe. The Mercier family showed up at the Pipe (except is eldest since he was working I guess), even the baby was there for the party. It was cool to see Eric having fun with his kids at the Pipe. Maybe some day I’ll be able to do the same with my future kids.
A photo of the day that I stole from Facebook.
I have known Mercier since he was about the age of his youngest child in the above photo. He would come and skate Sk8Parc on Jean-Talon. Even at that age he was showing me... [Voir la suite]
It is official, the Long Live Southbank organisation (LLSB) have been able to save London’s most iconic skateboard spot. The Southbank Centre, which owns the land, has agreed to keep the land for skateboarders for the foreseeable future. Over the years there have been some many skate spots that have been lost. Saving the Big O Pipe was an amazing feat that allows me (and many others) to continue to enjoy skating there on a day like today. LLSB must be feeling so much joy, as we did when Saputo told us they would save the Pipe. It must have been a ton of hard work and long hours which now all seem like a flash in the past. Time for you guys to start thinking of the future of the Southbanks. Great... [Voir la suite]
Another video by Pontus Alv with support for Converse Cons. I find it weird to make a video based off of a couple of obstacles that you have built that you move from location to location to film. You are forcing yourself into making a video of one hits. Since you are using the same obstacles, you end up with a bunch on similar looking clips. All that aside, you will most likely enjoy the video.

Watching the Welcome Skateboard guys skate is always enjoyable. They do not make your typical street skating video. It is as if we are watching Neil Blender and Lucero back in the early 80’s making up street skating as they went along. You can watch all the 11 clips or go here to see the complete video and even download (1.34GB) it for future... [Voir la suite]
Morgan Campbell just posted a re-edit of some 2002/2003 footage of Josh. You may have seen some of the footage in the Premium Wood video but most of the footage I have never seen before. Josh has been missed from west to the east coast of Canada.
Here is the accompanying quote from Morgan,
« Josh Evin was an amazing human. His energy on and off a board was unparalleled and his heart was made of pure gold. He passed away after a tragic motorcycle accident in June 2010 and not a day goes by where I don’t think of him. I have been meaning to edit this raw footage together for ages, but to tell you the truth I could only just come at it now. And yes, many tears were shed in the process. This is... [Voir la suite]
