If your favorite genre of skateboarding is massive kickflips set to Chief Keef, then this past week was particularly relevant to your interests.
It looked like it was bound to be a slow one, with everyone already knowing what the #1 would be, but lest it get lost in a no-context Thrasher video abyss, you should check out Hulkripps 3. Can’t tell much about it beyond a few recognizable Ohio spots, a lot of lllooonnnggg rails, and an abundance of Foundation boards with Nikes, but it manages to create a distinct ~mood~ for a 2018 midwest video without having to resort to artsy Super-8 cut-ins, or really anything that isn’t just a skate clip (e.g. it’s stark just how empty the background of much of the video is, like 85% of the clips were filmed at eight in the morning on a Saturday or some shit.)
