Erick Winkowski : Right To Exist

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…

July 18th, 2017

 

If you have seen anything else by Jacob Harris or any of the previous Atlantic Drift episodes you probably already know whats in store. The finest visual treat is the latest in the Atlantic Drift series, episode 4 this time filmed in New York. This one surpasses what has come before in what was already a high level of brilliance in the series’ earlier outings. Once again released in conjunction with Thrasher Magazine, featuring the combined abilities of Mike Arnold, Casper Brooker, Tom Knox, Mark Suciu, Kevin Coakley and more, alongside the standard high definition filming, there isn’t really any edits that can compare. The final installment of this really enjoyable web series is nothing short of amazing, Harris has the eye for the perfect shot, and this does not disappoint.

Volcom’s Hell of a Summer Video

July 17th, 2017

 

It’s hot and dry, standard procedure for an Australian summer morning, but as the Volcom team approached Sydney International airport the temperature kept rising and rising. They had hit Sydney the same time as a heat wave before heading into the wider land of Oz for spot hunting and alcohol fueled fun with The Skateboarders Journal on hand to capture the action as they went. So one thing was for certain, they were in for one hell of a trip, a trip that just so happens to have collided head on with one hell of a summer.

 

Featuring Jackson Pilz, Shane Azar, Axel Cruysberghs, Dane Burman, Reese Warren, Scotty Standley, Jesse Noonan, Nik Stipanovi and Colin Provost.
