It is a known fact that Canadians excel over Americans in many facets of living, yet never get the credit. Skateboarding is no exception, as many talents have fallen by the wayside of American attention spans in favor of inferior homegrown products.

During our DGK company retreat, we had a chance to speak with one of the few Canadians who broke through the glass ceiling and into the hearts of American ledge enthusiasts everywhere. We’re talking about none other than the legendary Wade D., the only Canadian to make the c. 2012 phat stylez master list. It should come as no surprise that he’s a fan of both the [Italian] American Gino and the Canadian Gino.

Quartersnacks for DGK in fine skate shops now :) Available online from 35th Ave, Black Sheep, FTC, Premier, Mom’s Sweet Shop, Palace 5ive, Pitcrew and Uprise.

Starting to try and avoid candidates for this series who feel guilty not recommending Sheffey in Soldier’s Story and Gonz in Video Days (no offense y’all) — at least for a few installments. So we’re getting ~weird~.

This one comes from Alex Olson’s favorite skateboarder, Forrest Edward’s OIAM co-star, and Hjalte Halberg’s most accurate impressonator, Chris Mango Milic.

Been a while since we ran one of these. This edition comes from a childhood hero of anyone who started skating during Shorty’s post-Fulfill the Dream reign. Muska covers some usual suspects, but luckily goes into a bit more detail as to *why* exactly some of the parts we’re often told are #important, are. Had a ton of fun doing this one. Unfortunately had to leave off the two honorable mentions at the bottom :( before it got way too long, though he was just as enthusiastic about those.

Chilling with Schiffer.

Keeping the series international for now. The latest installment comes from the reigning titleholder for Quartersnacks Noseslider of the Year — who in all honesty, stands the chance of two-peating even against some tough competition.

Figure it’s been a while since we did one of these with a non-American. Here you go.
