Antihero’s Destination Unknown

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

Leave it to Julien Stranger and the Antihero crew to drop a video this radical without any advanced notice. If this doesn’t make you want to hit the road with your crew there might be something wrong with you.

Isn’t life strange, and rad, and fucked up… Thank fucking skateboarding for the grounding and perspective in this shit stew of consumer capitalism and naked hypocrisy. Keep it raw. Keep it lurkie.

Valentine

Monday, November 17th, 2014

If you’re like us, you watch a lot of skate clips online everyday, and skim past even more that don’t perk your interests. This is not one to skim past. Skatepark edits are at least a penny a dozen at this point, cool to share amongst friends but generally not inspired or packed with enough action to warrant multiple viewings, if any viewings at all. This two-and-a-half minute clip from the Vancouver plaza, filmed by Jake Kuzyk (Civic Affair) and titled “Valentine” is a nice change from seeing a barrage of quick clips on mini-hubbas and close-ups of trucks grinding in slow-motion.

Featuring Ryan Witt, Dane Pryds, Landon Avramovic, Dave Livingston, and Will Blakley. Good stuff boys.
