Clubgear in New York

September 16th, 2015 | 4:26 am | Daily News | 9 Comments


Add Clubgear to the list of northern imprints truly seizing the current #moment that Canada is enjoying. (If that Future + Drake mixtape is real, then it will really push Canada’s #moment to newfound heights — though everyone knows that should’ve been a Future + Meek Mill mixtape until the dude decided to capsize his career. Still “Jump Out the Face” > “Where Ya At” x1000 regardless.)

Just a few weeks after dropping “Spots” and tapping into the zeitgeist of skating’s current infatuation with vocal-less house and 5050 tech, “Heat” went up on the TWS site late yesterday. It’s not as good as the top-three-of-its-decade Michael Mann movie that bears the same name (also subject of a recent Alltimers board), but what is?

Our editorial department has eased up on coverage of “Summer Trip To New York” montages in recent years (too overwhelming), but it’s nice when one inspires you to take a closer look at shit you otherwise only skate past every day. These dudes barely made it above 14th Street, and the only Brooklyn spot they touched is the first one you see after you get off the bridge. Instead, they ripped around seldom-skated Tribeca spots, underutilized Battery Park bumps, the temporarily sorta-skateable north side of Zuccotti (the last line’s gotta be a 2015 reader’s choice “Line of the Year” contender), and [the other] Three Up Three Down to do the weirdest trick that could possibly be done there. It turned out great and looking nothing like it’s genre counterparts from the past three months :)

Also TWS: it’s sick that you are doing cool stuff these days but your video player is :(

  • @sloppyjoe Between the red hair motherfucker with gauges, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and belated use of Trap Queen I’d have to say this is the whitest skate clip I’ve ever seen.
