Stoked on how long this edit is. Just makes you want to hop in a car to Tehachapi right now! Their website is smoke crack blade vert and they literally are….skating vert.
Sunday Streets is a thing they do here in SF where they close down some road to cars and just let people bike, skate, and dance all over. So this year Krans decided that it’s time for this event to have some blading in it. So he rented a UHaul and got some Amall P Rails and set this whole thing up. What the hell have you done for blading lately? So we had a nice little line of prails to hit to show the people what real blading looks like. Dudes came all the way from Sac just to skate some prails just to show support. Lots of people TALK about supporting blading and trying to get new eyes on what we do but most don’t do much but be negative to their fellow bladers and talk shit anonymously online. So a big thank to everyone that came out and had a rad day in park. Let’s try and keep blading positive and fun, like its supposed to be! So again, a really big thanks to Krans for putting it all together. Photos contributed by Megan Peterson and myself.
I shot this late night sweaty of Kevin Yee in the deep end at Potrero park last night. I really want to go skate there now after hanging out there last night. I’ve heard so many bad stories about Hesher dudes harassing bladers for getting in the way of the 1/4 inch grinds. But last night that wasn’t the case, the dudes were feeling the blading.
I found this image on Instagram from nori_to_mo. How awesome is that? A kendama playground. So epic!!!
More Voss, and more film! This time with a sweet Stale air.
Thrasher had a contest where you send in pictures of the awful skateparks in your area. Some of the submissions are just mind blowing. Check them out here, and be ready to laugh your ass off.
I didn’t get many pics because I was busy chatting, drinking and talking shit all day. This was a really fun event because there was no stress. You didn’t have to worry about getting in front of a bunch of people and playing. I brought my Pill with me and my DeathRay and they were both majors hits. People couldn’t put them down, especially The Pill. Daniela and Thomas from Swiss kendama were there and also Jeremy from Kendama USA. So it was great getting to chat and play ken with those guys. Definitely a fun event, we should have more of these no stress events in the future. Everyone was taking pics and video, so I’m sure there will be more pics up on the Kengarden soon.
I’m not really a fan of skate park edits but I really like the song in this. And its Bailey, B Smith and fucking OPALEK. So you know it’s a pull.
Wonka and some Wheel talk dudes shred that giant park down in SJ. I need to make it down there soon to skate it.
The trick at :21 is soooo fucking amazing, holy hell. This is tech to the fullest. Stevie Churchill is a beast.
