Cyril Jackson – Afterburner Part

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

 

Cyril Jackson has dropped a new feel good part via Thrasher Magazine and it’s a banger. Filled with a chilled out soundtrack and infinite smiles, Cyril is able to skate any spot in his own way looking like he’s having fun all the time, and that’s what skateboarding should be about right? The Baker Skateboards and DC rider’s skating is in that sweet spot between positive chaos and ultimate control. Watching ‘Afterburner’ will energize and inspire you to grab your board, get out that door and go have some fun. Click play and enjoy.

Ryan Decenzo – Darkstar Part

Monday, April 24th, 2017

 

Ryan Decenzo has released a new part for Darkstar Skateboards via the Berrics website and it’s a jaw dropper. Despite pushing over the ”wrong” side of thirty, seven years in the pro game and his last part including that deep switch front three down Wallenberg, Ryan has somehow raised the bar to the next level. Pushing the boundaries throwing himself down handrails, gaps and stairs with little regard for his body, this isn’t just four minutes of straight up gnar though, expect some technical ledge combos, lengthy wallrides and switch polejams thrown in for good measure. The elder Decenzo brother really does bring home the (Canadian) bacon, click play below to witness this chomper of a section.

Adidas Skateboarding – ‘On Your Marc’

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

 

Adidas Skateboarding keep the humor coming in the ‘On Your Marc’ video for Marc Johnson’s signature colourway of the ever popular Matchcourt Mid. The fresh looking light blue is the official colour of the University of North Carolina which is where Marc grew up and the subtle gold MJ branding really catches the eye. In the video we see MJ finding himself in weirder and weirder situations, riffling off some slapstick monologue towards a pair of his new shoes. Some people are loving the humor but others aren’t so keen. It’s always good to see new MJ footage and even when it is lighthearted he kills it, click play below and give it a watch and see what you reckon.

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

 

One of the best things about winning Thrasher’s Skater Of The Year award is you get to celebrate by taking some of your best mates on a skate trip to the destination of your choice. This years winner Kyle Walker opted to take Ishod Wair, Daan Van Der Linden, Zion Wright, Jackson Pilz, Louie Lopez, Nakel Smith, Reese Salken, Jake Donnelly, Peter Ramondetta and Chima Ferguson (all accompanied by mag editor in chief Jake Phelps) ‘down under’ to turn the skate spots of Melbourne into their playground. The ‘Good Homies’ video does not disappoint in any way shape or form, the next nine minutes will blow your mind.
