After a bout of phone tag, we got the famously smartphone-averse Wes Kremer on the horn for a Five Favorite Parts installment. But rather than getting right into the list, the preluding conversation felt worth sharing with the world. Shout out to D-Blaze.

We’ve all been fans of Jordan’s skateboarding for a long time now. Whether he’s squeezing five-trick lines out of seemingly not-much or sliding into your timeline to do some shit you’ve never seen before, he’s always working in the realm of the unexpected. Here is where he gets his inspo from :)

April is one of those rare months where we’re throwing out two editions of Five Faves (Elijah Odom‘s ran earlier this month) on account of us missing March ;)
The past few Foundation videos have ignited a conversation (consensus?) about how to successfully refresh a legacy skate brand. Rather than lean into formulas that worked in years past, Splendor and Whippersnappers were both exciting projects with firm footing in the moment. In that crop of new faces, Ariana Spencer has stood out each time with contagiously fun footage — so we reached out for a list of inspirations. (Ariana has a full interview in the latest issue of Closer as well. Shout out to Jamie for the photo.)

The videos which first inspired Greg as a young skateboarder later became an anchor to the filmmaker who continues to give to skateboarding’s audiovisual culture.
