Curated and Written by David Ehrenreich (as seen in Issue 118)

The sheer amount of skating popping up online this winter was astonishing. One amazing video would come out and the next week we’d forget when it was replaced with another. It’s a testament to the constant progression. And now that warmer, longer days are here, hopefully we can help you spend your online time wisely so you can be out filming, giving us all something to look at when winter rolls around again.


TORTS DREAMS 3
Chris Wardle is an editor/videographer who lives in Toronto. Between doing work for local real estate companies, music videos, Canadian horror movies and fashion shoots, Chris’ after-work project has been in skateboarding. Sometimes an impressive list of credentials doesn’t add up to an entertaining video, but Chris hasn’t forgotten the tried-and-true rules of the independent project: simple, packed with quality moves and a good sense of humour. He did, on the other hand, give himself first part, but the rails he conquered are so hilarious and gnarly I think any viewer can let that faux pas slide. Other highlights include Jeff Folgmann’s brutal, unexpected backflip, and Phil McKnight’s handsome mix of tech-savvy shredding, and a complete Gonzo rail assault. My absolute favourite trick in the video is Phil’s switch nose manny right at the 32:39 mark, making TD3 worth watching straight through to get there.

CONCRETE Skateboarding Interview Issue – OUT NOW

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Issue 118, our second of the 2012 publishing season, will begin making its way into skateshops across Canada on April 16th (available for free, of course), and it serves as our second Interview Issue (the first one dropped in 2008). There’s a lot to peruse in this one, but for now check out the latest cover followed by previews from our 5 feature interviews after the jump…

THE HAT TRICK // Cover photo and caption by Mikendo

From an American’s perspective (and one who knows nothing about hockey), I wasn’t exactly sure what “hat trick” meant at first. Sounds like a magic trick to me. And if you think about it, skateboarding is kinda like magic. Take this NOLLIE FLIP, for example. RYAN DECENZO had to blast off a skinny ledge and into a bank that’s about two storeys tall and steeper than a double black diamond. If that’s not magical, I don’t know what is. But let’s go back to the hat trick. This is Ryan’s third Concrete cover [he joins Jon West, Max Dufour, Ryan Smith, Corey Sheppard, Alex Chalmers, Paul Machnau and Chris Haslam in reaching that benchmark], and with his professional status in overdrive, a TransWorld part under his belt and a pro model Globe shoe on the way, Ryan is truly a goddamn magician.
