Concrete #131: etnies Canada in China

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Timebomb Trading sent their etnies Canada squad over to China for three weeks to explore charted spots and discover new ones in Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dongguan, Guanghua and Foshan. Unlike what they’re used to during their North American travels, the crew discovered the unique and expansive alleyway marketplaces of the Far East. There they found everything from unrefrigerated street meat, to pet turtles, pool tables and even their accommodations.

As seen in Concrete #131 as a 14-pager, Alleyway Vacay features Matt Berger, Derek Swaim, Cory Wilson, Drew Summersides and Stacy Gabriel. Check out the accompanying Part 1 & 2 videos, as well as a digital version of the feature as it appears in the mag.

Concrete Skateboarding #131: Out Now

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

Skateboarding is rad, pure and simple. We all know it, so there’s no need for a heartfelt intro about how it makes us feel. The days are long, the weather’s warm and free copies of Concrete #131 will be available at a Canadian skateshop near you (starting July 14th) to help get you hyped. In the meantime, check out our latest landscape-style cover, commercial and feature previews…

MIRAGE FREE // Cover photo & caption by Rich Odam

On our way to a plaza in Dongguan, China, that hadn’t been skated by anyone besides locals, myself and the etnies Canada crew spotted this huge metal sculpture about a block away. The arch has two metal banks on the inside, and thoughts of this being a mirage spot rather than a skateable one quickly ran through my mind. But once we rolled up, CORY WILSON and I knew it was good to go. He put his feet to work, and it wasn’t one of those sessions that attracted attention since the spot was basically on an island next to a couple main roads. People would slow down to see what was going on, but that’s about it. There was no kick-out, so Cory had plenty of time to work on this HEELFLIP FAKIE while I wrapped my brain around the different angle possibilities.

What does Spain, Portugal, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany and Denmark have in common? Thunder and Spitfire riders Will Marshall and Bobby de Keyzer skated ‘em all during the #eurotripofdoom2014, that’s what. Learn more about this three-month adventure in a double-interview, see what they saw through a collection of their snapshots, and catch some of the tricks they got at fancy Euro spots. Unfortunately there are no photos of them “getting weird” at Spanish discotecas.

A dose of culture shock and the promise of perfect spots for days is plenty of motivation to get your ass on a plane. It started with Chris Haslam walking out of a Ben Stiller movie feeling inspired, so he called his friend Steve Nesser, who called up fellow Send Help teamster Tabari Cook. Brian Caissie tagged along as the highly motivated filmer and photographer, and there you have it. Don’t think the classic toy logo knock-offs mean the dudes were playing around. They got down. | #hazbrosinchina

The odors might be pungent and the street meat might be visually unpleasant, but there are gems to be had in the alleyway marketplaces of China. Cover-bro Cory Wilson (his second Concrete cuv shot in China), along with Matt Berger, Derek Swaim, Stacy Gabriel and Drew Summersides from etnies Canada even stayed in an alley hotel. When the fellas weren’t buying pet turtles and “safe” Muslim fried rice in back lanes, they where slaying sweet spots for this 14-page headline feature. | #sweetandsouretnies

BURRITO SACRIFICE // Cover photo and caption by Saeed Rahbaran

CAMEO WILSON is one of the most consistent skateboarders I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. He currently lives in Vancouver and comes back to Las Vegas about twice-a-year to visit his family and skate as much as possible. On this particular day I was incredibly hungry, so I decided to get a burrito at the Baja Fresh right at the top of the famous six-flat-six in Vegas. Through the window I was watching Cameo warm up with some ollies. He opened the door and told me he wanted to land a 360 FLIP first before shooting it. So I tossed my food, grabbed the gear, and by the time I walked to the set he did one perfectly. But, as promised, Cameo landed an even better one for his first-ever cover on a Canadian magazine.
