Sometimes a photo does a trick more justice than the footage. You’re typically seeing anything on a magazine cover as a photo before the video comes out. Everyone knew it was coming in that Milton part, but seeing that kickflip in motion was actually something else. You felt it in your chest.

‘Jamrock Jerk’ — The Latest Video From Gangcorp

Anyone already fatigued by the onslaught of skateboarding’s de facto Oscars season should check the new one from Gangcorp for a nice change of pace…

Hey what’s up hello — it was a slow week around here on the front-end of things, but definitely not slow in the wide wide world of skateboarding. We got the Readers Survey numbers tallied, and will be pretty busy around here until the year / decade is out with #content.

This could’ve been a Top 20. Sorry if your faves got snubbed.

See you next week. We’ll have a lot of stuff going on then. Enjoy the break in the weather today ♥

EDIT: #9 is actually Adrien Coillard. Sorry for the error.

Still devastated after finding out that his Yeah Right! part was fake back in September. Never thought Takeshi 6ix9ine would be the one to ruin all of our childhoods…

Crawled under a rock Friday morning? Dime’s Knowing Mixtape Volume 2 is live.

Safe to say that Marcello won the Pyramid Ledges best trick contest that Jenkem has going on. Wow.

Rashad Murray’s part in the D.C-based Bottleneck video rips.
