Limosine [sic], the much speculated-on company born out of the exodus from 917 via much of the same roster (Logan, Cyrus, Max et al. + some new teamriders), released a five-minute teaser for their upcoming video ❤️
This one deserves way more burn on the skateboard media circuit: “blast!” by Vancouver-based videographer, Chance Swainson. Starts off with Dustin Henry and his brother, continues with a whole slate of new-gen Vancouver dudes, and has an awesome ender part from Tremaine Glasgow — with incredible #musicsupervision the whole way through.

Zubr made a Brian O’Dwyer loosies compilation.
Not exactly a “one-spot part,” so it can’t make the official map, but the Italian Vans team released a video that takes you on a journey through the main plaza spot in four Italian cities: Bologna, Milan, Reggio Emilia and Turin. We love Italy, so it’s good research 🤓
