Kris Vile in LA for Almost Skateboards

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

 

It’s no doubt that Kris Vile is one of the most on it and productive skateboarders from the UK. Hailing from the often gloomy west midlands, the UK Vans rider never lets the rain dampen his efforts. A killer on pretty much everything on his skateboard whether it be street, ramp or park he has more motivation than most. Kris recently took a ten day trip over to LA to shoot some photos and film some footage for Almost Skateboards and Dwindle Distribution, his efforts come in the form on the edit below and for only being there for a short period of time only shows what an all rounder he is. Click play then head over to the Sidewalk website for the accompanying interview.

Erick Winkowski : Right To Exist

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

 

Some of you may not have really heard of or taken notice of Erick Winkowski but we know after watching this part he’ll be a name you will remember. Santa Cruz’s Right To Exist premiered last December and for those of you who may have missed it or not purchased the video on its release the usual array of internet sharing is underway. Watching this you’d think we have been transported back to 1985 as Erick reps those old school shapes, has an invert and handplant game to put others to shame, a bonkers bag of tricks but yet still throws in a dose of street skills just for good measure. Skateboarding has no rules as they say and this part is proof to that statement if there ever was one. Get ready for a lesson in what it means to shred…
