Skate contests always get a bad reputation from the average skater, either they say there is too much pressure or they would rather skate street and not have to worry.
I personally don’t mind watching contests but I don’t know how people deal with the demand to be the best in front of the judgmental eyes of the public.
Recently good homie and all around rad human Josh Clark has been organizing some funs contests by reviving the Empire Games.
First was the race ( here and here )which was a big hit amongst the skate community and everyone involved, and over the weekend he organized the Wallrideorama at The Boonies skatepark in Cowansville.
We all met at the Empire downtown location and got into a yellow school bus with a bunch of... [Voir la suite]

Yesterday morning I got a phone call asking if I wanted to hit Quebec City’s bowl bash. Out of all the previous Bowl Bashes, I had never missed one of them so I was stoked I was not going to miss this one. I had been looking for a ride all week. As I got into the car, Lauzier asked me if I thought it was going to rain. I had no idea at all, I had not checked the weather in days.
Once at the bowl I had a little lunch and got to seeing how my ankle felt skating. The body, my body, was a little slow to start up. The local QC guys started showing up and bam, the hard rain started. When the hard rain let up and we all got happy until the rain started up... [Voir la suite]
Okay, I have heard of H-Street but A-Street, I’ve never heard of that crew before. Apparently they are a crew from Richmond Virginia. Over the years I have driven through there a couple of times but I have never stopped there to skate. I know no one in the video but who cares what I know. The video is rad and that is all that matters.

Montreal is known for it’s raw east coast spots and dope skate scene. All last summer Roberto Presedo was working full time during the day and was filming all night with a bunch of sick skaters. This movie has a sick vibe, sick filming, and really gets you stoked to go night skating with your friends!
We present the online premier of After Hours!
A Montreal Skateboarding movie filmed and edited by Roberto Presedo.

Most D.I.Y. skatepark projects take years if not decades to be completed. Levis (to my amazement I did say Levis) joined Bolivian skater Milton Arellano in reuniting a crew with over a 100 skateboarders and builders to fast track the building of a designed on the spot skatepark in La Paz. They came up with some crazy obstacles. It is nice to see skateboarders get together to help the less fortunate skateboarders.

Bien franchement, j’ai toujours un peu peur des événements multi « sports d’action » parce que trop souvent, en essayant de faire plaisir à tout le monde ont fait plaisir à personne.
C’était ma première expérience Jackalope et j’ai eu bin du plaisir. Mellow ambiance, mellow sécurité, chiens admis sur le site! Cool événement.
La seule critique constructive que j’ai, c’est que le set up pour le skate n’avait pas le niveau « World cup ». Loin de là. Oh aussi, la musique était fucking painful.
La première photo que j’ai shooté en arrivant c’est ce boneless de Philip Dulude. Plus je vois ce kid, plus je suis stoked.

Why is it that the most populous city in the United States produces very little professional skateboarders? It is not like New Yorkers do not have the talent to be pro, it just never happens for them. The skateboard industry is run from California. Unless you move out there, chances are you will not make it as a pro skater. It looks like the industry is trying their hardest to stay in power and not have non Californian companies start running the show.
