Emerica, RVCA (Timebomb Trading), Krooked, Thunder and Spitfire (Supra Distribution) rider Alexis Lacroix keeps things creative on the wood-wheel, and hits the road to points unknown whenever possible.

Check out the digital version of it below (viewable on your desktop or mobile device), and take a gander at his latest video part scored by his stoner folk band Jam Boulevard and presented by Timebomb Trading and RVCA.

Timebomb Trading sent Skylar Kehr, Colin Lambert, Andrew Wenckstern, Scott Varney and Hugo Balek from Altamont Canada to Las Vegas to get tricks for a Concrete Issue 129 feature. Some felt it was a tall order, considering it’s called Sin City for good reason. But the boys managed a solid balance of debauch, gambling and skateboarding.
As a matter of fact, the following video with partitioned day and night footy is proof-plenty of their wood-wheel work. And if you didn’t have a chance to pick up that free issue of the mag (or if you live outside of Canada), no prob! Just flip through the mobile device-friendly digital version of the article below.

Full details on the Joe’s Ramp Jam Facebook event page. See you there!

ALEXIS LACROIX and I are always talking shit to each other. A few weeks after I moved to Quebec City last summer, he called about shutting down the city with an epic banger. As usual we laughed about it, but I knew it was no joke when he told me to meet up at this gap called Skinny To Skinny. He’s been talking about doing this trick for a few years now, and even though it’s not the biggest gap, the danger factor is high. At first he just wanted to cruise around and wasn’t down to try this 360 FLIP. I don’t usually put on the pressure, but I told him there’s no way I’d leave without him trying. Good thing Alexis works well under pressure; he rolled away a few tries later and was ready to crack a beer on our way to the next spot.

Barcelona, San Francisco and Shenzhen are a few places that come to mind when dreaming up skate destinations. Fact of the matter is, there’s plenty of urban centres in our vast stretch of homeland to explore on the wood-wheel. The Maritimes should be on every Canadian’s bucket list of places to visit, so in this issue we take a locals’ look at #skatelife in Saint John and Moncton, nestled in the friendly province of New Brunswick.

Whether it’s smearing a strip of Bondo on an annoying crack, building a cinder block ledge, putting a little (or a lot) of tranny on that barrier, or pouring a full-blown park handmade by the homies, this special instalment of Exposure is a nod to the constantly changing DoItYourself landscape.

Going on a skate trip to Las Vegas seems like a brutally counter-productive idea. Fact of the matter is, Timebomb Trading was confident that their Altamont Canada squad would be on their grind in Sin City. Colin Lambert, Skylar Kehr, Hugo Balek, Scott Varney and Andrew Wenckstern didn’t disappoint, as shown in this Days & Nights split feature. Stay tuned for Timebomb’s video component, dropping on March 4th here at concreteskateboarding.com. | #altamontsincity

Montreal’s Alexis Lacroix runs things pretty loose by not having a phone, staying in tents, hostels and on couches for undisclosed amounts of time, and playing harmonica and trumpet in a stoner folk band called Jam Boulevard. But the dude knows how to roll. It’s no wonder that Supra Distribution backs him with Krooked, Thunder and Spitfire, while Timebomb Trading hooks him up with Emerica and RVCA. Stay tuned for Alexis’ Timebomb video part, dropping on March 18th here at concreteskateboarding.com.
