Nike SB and Quartersnacks present “Core,” the new video by Johnny Wilson. The project depicts a week-long journey through Upstate New York, with stops in Albany, Syracuse, Ithaca, Rochester and Buffalo.

This was unequivocally the first skate trip in the history of skateboarding where not a single person complained. No “these spots suck,” no “let’s go somewhere else,” no “pull over to this Taco Bell.” Not even a request to stop at local D.I.Y. spots, as it was deemed that skating D.I.Y. without having contributed their construction is not as #core as a #bond with the #streets. Nobody even knew what a “skatepark” was. #core ;)

Features Bobby Worrest, Hjalte Halberg, Nick Boserio, Antonio Durao, Cyrus Bennett, Q.S.S.O.T.Y. Max Palmer and Andrew Wilson. Filmed and edited by Johnny Wilson. All trip photography by Zach Malfa-Kowalski.

  • Yo I hate to be THAT guy, but I’m not sure if the audio matched up to the skating. Not saying the music wasn’t good, just the pop noises and landing didn’t match the skaters. Great vid tho :)

  • I just want to point out that a lot of video dudes can fuck up even with a crew like this, but Johnny keeps the editing pretty raw and knows how the fuck to use a fisheye. Big fan. This was unbelievable.
