Format and Away Days Premieres

 

Video premiere season is upon us! Summertime doesn’t just mean great weather and short-shorts, and just to be clear, I’m not talking about chubbers (don’t worry Garrett you get a free pass). I’m talking about foxy chicks with nice legs. No summertime means that people put out full length videos that they’ve been busting their asses for. Over this past weekend we got to see two videos in two nights.

Ambush Format and Away Days Premieres

Friday night was a local video called “Format”, which was filmed by Carver Weeks and Austin Sneed. It featured parts from Will Gatewood, Ryan Gatewood, Dylan Stuckman, Solomon Mosley, Anthony Morales and Ben Hayes. Its always fun going to a local video premiere because you get to see people you don’t get to usually hang out with on a regular basis. Everyone is typically in a great mood and ready to party! Oh and did I mention that the premiere was at a bar in East Atlanta called the Graveyard? Cheap drinks and pool will always spice up the night of a vid, that is if you can get a turn on the pool table. Anyways, Format was great, hugs were given, beer was spilled and bad decisions were most likely made. Looking forward to the next local video to come out! Read More >

Lakai Vincent 2 with Skyler

We always have a lot to be hyped on, for starters, it’s spring and that fresh feeling is taking over. Speaking of fresh, new to Lakai’s Spring ’16 lineup is Vincent Alvarez’s second pro model, the Vincent 2 and it’s hella fresh.

For those unfamiliar with Vicent, he burst onto the scene after winning DC‘s King of LA contest in 2007.  That one contest propelled a seemingly unknown Vincent to an overnight sensation and put him on everyone’s radar. Most importantly, his performance put him on Sam Smyth’s radar (Sam is team manager for Girl Skateboards & Chocolate).  Smyth would just have to track down Vincent first.. As legend has it, Vincent won a prepaid phone at the DC contest and exchanged number’s with Smyth but never made contact past this exchange. Once Vincent’s phone ran out of minutes there was no way to contact him. Eventually Smyth was able to find him and the rest is history, Vincent picked up a spot on Chocolate skateboards and eventually the legendary Lakai footwear. Read More >

Miles Silvas Q&A for Official

Miles Silvas for Official

Miles Silvas rocking his signature Official Headwear cap.

I tend to think of myself as a huge skate nerd, and I am, for the most part. Nearly every morning waking up consists of checking the feeds for whatever I missed out on  while sleeping but most importantly, I check the boards (Slap Magazine’s forum). I have been doing the latter for god knows how long, so it’s not everyday I see amazing footage from someone I have never heard about. For the most part, normally, I have some idea of who’s who and what’s going on. So when someone drops some new amazing footage without hearing any rumblings, it makes you take note.

The first time I heard of Miles Silvas or I should say “saw” was when I watched his  Welcome to Royal Truck’s video. For such a quick clip that introduction always stuck out in my mind. I think it’s partially due to the clashing cymbals of Love’s Seven and Seven Is playing  mixed with the kickflip front board at the end. That shit hit me like a ton of bricks. It immediately became obvious that’d we’d be seeing a lot more of him in the near future. Read More >

Travis Glover- Bad Shit Video | Watch!

New Travis Glover Clips!

Unless you have been living under a rock, by now, y’all are very aware of the smooth stylings of Travis Glover. From his early days shredding the Wood Ward park at Discover Mills to his various video part’s in videos by Max Yoder and Chris Thiessen, Travis has always brought the ruckus. His footage is always a highlight wherever it is showcased. So we couldn’t be more hyped to present a new part from Travis. So sit back, grab a beer or what have you and peep Travis’s new part “bad shit”. Lets just say we expect to see a lot more of him in the future.

Cataloochee Day Trips

The schedule for the next week just got posted. You check to see what your week looks like. Then, you notice you and all your friends have the same day off. It’s snowboard season. What do you do? Take a day trip to Cataloochee.

The boys hit the road last week and spent their collective day off in the mountains of North Carolina. The day started with a meet up at 6:30 am, then the 3-hour drive to Cataloochee, followed by 6 hours of snowboarding. For most of them, it was the first session on the mountain all winter. For all, it was a a great way to spend the day.

Next time you and all your homies have the day off together, make the most of it. Do something different. Do something together. And, most importantly, have fun. Read More >
