SLAP released a video that chronicles the Business in the Pacific Northwest tour by Think Skateboards that went down May 26-June 2. Watch Russ Milligan, Lee Yankou, Joey Guevara, Adrian Williams, Josh Matthews and Pat Moranhandle their Northwest biz.
Take a look back at our exclusive Metro Vancouver Park Barge video that chronicles a couple of park sessions during the last stop of the Think tour:
In early June Josh Matthews, Russ Milligan, Lee Yankou, Adrian Williams, Joey Guevara and Pat Moran from the Think team hopped the border to visit Russ’ hometown of Vancouver at the end of the Business In The Pacific Northwest Tour(check out our Instagram recap here). They spent a day skating the Chuck Bailey park in Surrey and the RailSide park in Port Coquitlam with a street spot stopover in between. Here’s how it all went down:
Since the exclusive content archives run pretty deep here at concreteskateboarding.com, we’re serving up something from the past on a weekly basis (or whenever we remember to do it)…
This isn’t too much of an oldie, but since the Think team was recently in Vancouver (check out our Instagram recap) we decided it fitting to look back at a video we posted nearly a year ago to the date. Think TM Justin Carlson assembled some clips featuring Russ Milligan, Josh Matthews and special guest Kevin Lowry to supplement an article we did called The Portugal Recollection in Issue 113 (flip through it on your cpu or mobile device right here).
Filmed and edited by: Justin Carlson
Post-production elements: David Ehrenreich
Song: “Too Many Rules” (1961/Portuguese version) by Connie Francis
Our video specialist David Ehrenreich was in the mix, so stay tuned for an edit. There’s an obvious Instagram theme here – virtually every step of the tour was documented via the photo sharing app. Here are a few Insta highlights from Think’s visit to Vancouver:
The Think dudes are set to arrive in Vancouver on June 2nd and they’re looking to roll with you at the Chuck Bailey skatepark in Surrey (directions here) and Railside in Port Coquitlam (directions here).

Hot off the heels of their April video release, Business As Usual, Think is set to roll on their Business in the Pacific Northwest Tour from May 26th until June 2nd.
The team will be in Vancouver on June 2nd and they’ll be spending the day checking out 2 Lower Mainland parks. By keeping tabs on our site, Instagram (@concreteskatemag), Facebook (@concreteskateboarding) and Twitter (@concreteskate) you’ll find out where and when you can skate with the Think dudes!
San Francisco’s Think Skateboardscomes through with their highly anticipated, well-produced (and free) feature-length, Business As Usual. And with parts from Canucks Russ Milligan and Lee Yankou, along with Josh Matthews, Cody McEntire, Dave Bachinsky, and Adrian Williams – it’s 26 web-minutes well spent.
To coincide with our 2011 cover vote, we wanted to tip our hats to the past year by cutting a video featuring 3 minutes worth of the best clips from our Concrete exclusives.
There are too many dudes to mention in this one, so you’ll have to click play and watch 37 of Canada’s finest rollers (with a few south-of-the-border bros in the mix). Brought to you by Fourstar, C1RCA and OMIT:
