It is hard to believe that The Yard has already been around for 2 years. What seems like just months ago, I was seeing photos of the finished bowl with no decks yet. If I do think about it, I have already skated there 5 times on four different road trips. I guess time flies by sometimes. Every time I skate there I like the bowl more and more. At first it was really slippery and it kind of scared the shit out of me. Now it is way grippier. The fact that everything is different in the bowl was weird to me at first, no hips are similar, no two transitions are the same, no two pockets are the same and not even the two halfpipe walls are the same. That has made it harder for me to find my grove in the bowl for sure. ... [Voir la suite]
These videos that SixStair put out with Peter Hewitt are funny and sad at the same time. The sad part is that some people might actually believe that handyman Pete is not joking. The skating in the clips is rad though. Especially the eggplant on the punk wall at Channel Street, that is just plain nuts. There seems to be a background theme to these four clips; don’t wait around for someone else to build (or fix) the skate spot, make it happen yourself. This is so true.

Quand j’étais petit, les photos étaient une fenêtre ouverte sur le monde du skateboard, tant sur ce qu’il était que sur la voie qu’il prenait. Sans internet, je devais allé au dépôt de magazine pour avoir le dernier Thrasher, Transworld Skateboarding ou Poweredge et voir des photos de skate. Le magasin (au début il n’y en avait qu’un qui vendait des « skate mag » et il était à côté de la rue Peel) ne recevait que quelques copies par mois donc des fois il n’y en avait plus quand...

To date I have only visited one place in Colorado, the Denver airport. The airport has a nice view but that is about it. I was on the way to LAX at the time so the idea of being in LA was more important to me than the view from the airport window. Over the last couple of years Team Pain has built a ton of skateparks and backyard pools in Colorado. My friend Eric Muenier even worked with Team Pain out there to build a couple of skateparks. There is so much cool stuff out there to skateboard now. This summer might have to be road trip time to Colorado (let’s do it Kutzy!).
I think Eric Muenier looks a lot like Peter Hewitt and maybe Hugues Lauzier could pass as Stu Graham. Who is the Montreal version of Willis... [Voir la suite]

The boys from Ottawa got hit hard this winter with the cold weather and the fact that they do not have any indoor spots to hit. Sometimes they setup a Yolobus down to Montreal to skate while the snow is falling. Sometimes they just can not wait to setup a Yolobus, they just jump into a car for a road trip to Montreal. By the looks of the video, it seems like they had a blast skating on this today. They even found some multiple trick lines. There is a new park in Ottawa that is going to open and the snow is melting so we Montrealers will not be seeing them until they invade N.D.I.P. skatepark and P45. Enjoy the summer guys.
