Red Bull Skateboarding presents the first part of a skate adventure into the Thai jungle. The genesis of this quest lay in cameraman Nick Richards, who showed a lot of tenacity, research and patience in pulling this first-ever trip of its kind off.
Enlisted for their ATV skills and sense of adventure were Santa Cruz’s Justin Strubing and Stereo pro Clint Peterson alongside Dylan Hughes and Daryl Dominguez. Keep your eyes peeled for part two shortly.
On Saturday, October 24th, 2015 Red Bull Skateboarding teamed up with Creature & Santa Cruz Skateboards/Indy Trucks/OJ Wheels/Bronson Speed Co. to throw a 21-man invite-only backyard bowl bash at Pat Lowery’s legendary Richmond, Virginia Lost Bowl.
With a field of some of the top ams, pros and East Coast up and comers, the day consisted of seven 7-minute 3-man heats followed by a 29-minute everyone-in chaos session set to Slayer’s “Reign in Blood” (inspired by Jim’s Ramp Jam of 1996) and three best tricks. In a rarely seen contest decision, the inmates were put in charge of the asylum and the 21 skaters were asked to judge themselves and pick the top 3 winners. The results, as voted on by the skaters in the contest are as follows:
1st Cody Chapman
2nd Chris Russell
3rd Kevin Kowalski
4th John Gardner
John Gardner – Boneless into the pool
Chris Gregson – Frontside kickflip over the ladder
Jack Fardell – Nose manual
Alex Sorgente – Backside flip
Josh Borden – Nosegrind
Ben Hatchell – Half Cab Front blunt
A long flight and an overwhelming entrance, a crew of skaters including Barney Page, Denny Pham, Nestor Judkins, Wilko Grüning, Brian Dolle, Gosha Konyshev, filmer Patrik Wallner and photographer Lev Maslov embark to discover the beauty of Madagascar.
5BORONYC riders Karim Callender, Willy Akers and Elijah Cole are featured in this latest installment of “Daily Grind” for Red Bull Skateboarding that takes you on a tour of Astoria Skate Plaza.
After crossing the country and enjoying the beautiful scenery of the south, as seen in parts one and two of “Children of the Sun”, the limited skateable terrain began to prove a challenge and so it was time to head back to the capital to quench the crew’s thirst.
Back in town, the crew – Brian Delatorre, Aidan Campbell, Charles Collet, Manu Etchegoyen, Tjark Thielker and Maxim Kruglov – once again fell foul of law enforcement… If you ever go to Bishkek, chances are you’ll discover that just about anything can merit a police check.
Red Bull Skateboarding has produced another episode in their series entitled “Videofolio”, this time featuring Mark Kendrick. Mark’s “Shads” video “represents a kind of high-water mark on every front for independent video production in the UK”.
This clip, “Reverberation”, is a bridging feature, which begins in Manchester and ends in London, with both cameos and extended sections from some of the UK’s finest underground street-skating talent.
Once you’ve watch the video, head over to the Red Bull Skateboarding site to read an interview with Mark.
