Go Skateboarding Day 2022 video inspiration from Sam Mason and more

Happy Go Skateboarding Day 2022 everyone! Hope you’re all well and enjoying the strange burst of sun.
It’ll never last obviously but, whilst it does, here’s some GSD inspo.
First up is Black Sheep family member, ripper, musician and destroyer of plexiglass Sam Mason.
This one dropped on the Vague Skate Mag a few days back and it’s a belter!
Filmed by Michal Busko and edited by none other than Joe Gavin, this is 4 minutes worth of crust embrace from Sam Mason. Filmed all over the UK, (with a number of Scottish gems peppered throughout), you’ll be hyped on this one, believe me. Big up Simply Shredd. Whilst you’re appreciating this flame-haired wonder, why not go follow the Instagram of the music collective he’s involved in? Check out @eandi_collective for gig info.

Next up is the lastest Vans Europe video entitled ‘Much Quiet’. I’m assuming the title’s a Covid reference as judging on a lot of the footage, this 30 minute banger was filmed primarily during the various lockdowns of the last two years in London and Paris. There’s a huge cast list of heads you’ll want to see in this one. Everyone from Helena Long to Palace Skateboards OGs Danny Brady and Rory Milanes come through with parts.
As always with Vans, there’s a lot of variety in terms of styles and despite it being nearly all ‘street’, there will be something for everyone. The YouTube upload is also chaptered and Sirus Gahan who made the vid has seen fit to disregard the current trend for not including skater’s names thankfully.
This one’s very on trend: lots of gaps to kerb tricks, slappy variations and weird trousers but it’s a banger.
Big up Vans.

Final Go skateboarding Day 2022 video inspiration for this post comes via the always reliable Real Skateboards.
You all already knew that Jimmy Wilkins is probably the most exciting vert skater to ever live, right?
Well, if you didn’t know that, or you need a reminder, peep his welcome to Real Skateboards part below.
It’s absolutely insane. The line which ends on the kickflip frontside boardslide alone is mind-bending and don’t get me started on the flat bottom revert mid run. Insanity. Our very own Harry Lintell even makes an appearance.
Go watch.
