Kyota Umeki’s ‘Potluck’ Part

When Kyota won Stingwater’s coveted 2019 GRoETY award via an Instagram announcement, some of you were probably thinking, “Alright, where is the part?” (Antonio’s win came with a part.) Sidelined at the moment by an ankle injury from October, Kyota’s de facto GRoETY part became his section in Potluck, Diego Donival’s new one, which we are happy to share with you here.

If the Homies Video part was inspired by Misled Youth, this one was obviously inspired by Jaws v.s. the Lyon 25.

Potluck premiered back in December, and is a showcase of a new generation that came of age lurking around Labor, L.E.S., Tompkins, etc. looking for tree stumps to wallie and um, basketball hoops to drop in off. Features parts from Caleb Yuan, Kyota, Marcello Campanello, Isaac White, Quinn Bailey, Sully Corimer and Yaje Popson, who flies the flag for the 12th & A generation. You can buy a DVD or a VHS of the video via Diego’s Big Cartel page.

You’re about to think you’re reading a 2014 Monday Links update: “Buzzcam 01” is a new Johnny Wilson video blog. We LOVE YouTube Johnny. Mostly filmed around the Vans park, with some street clips at the end.

Zach Baker put together a new edit featuring E.T. and E.J. for when she tells you that you’re too old to be listening to YNW Melly.

Jake Kuzyk’s new one is called “Kick Back,” and is effectively a sequel to Courtesy, except this time for Spitfire instead of Vans. Features most of the Alltimers team, Chris Milic, Diego Todd, Nick Michel, and Jed Anderson. Dustin’s three-trick line at the brick bank in downtown Vancouver is fire.
