I guess we gotta go to fuckin’ Instabul now?
This one’s a bit all over the place, but it’s mainly about friends, yaknow. Also realizing now that Max got snubbed, which means we will begin shutting down operations in the next 20 minutes out of shame. Could’ve all been from Trust Fall, but had to show love to a couple young legends, plus one of-age legend. Have a good weekend yo ♥
One really subtle and cool thing that is rarely discussed (maybe because it rarely happens?) is when somebody is relatively low to the ground and not hucking for their entire part — and then decides to go big for their ender to completely shatter any expectations they’ve otherwise built throughout. This week’s #1 falls into that pleasant surprise “whoa” category ;)
And if there’s one guy who should be paid to promote trucks, it’s the guy whose nickname has the word “trucks” in it. Really smart of the “loose trucks saves lives” brand to wire $10 million into Max Palmer’s Swiss bank account for him to endorse their aluminum. And we’ve discussed the three three-sets behind the Met on here before, but footage will never to justice to how fast you’re going by the time you get off the bottom set. That line was awesome, but that’s kinda what Max Palmer does yaknow.
Have a good one.
Before someone goes “But what about the Texas ‘Wrecking Crew’ video?!” Yeah, there was some cool shit in there, but this week is all about the indies. Dan Magee and Kevin Parrott’s Blips video deserves a full watch if you have yet to do so. We could’ve easily pulled a ten from that video alone, but had to throw in a couple extras ;)
Any help on identifying the two title-less Norwegians is appreciated.
It might seem like street loops are everywhere these days, but that Copenhagen one has been around since 2016. And in the city that is home to the largest skateboard contest in Europe — literally thousands of skaters have looked at it, and passed. (It’s also in the city that is adjacent to where Oski lives, so…) Shout out to Simon Bannerot for pulling that one off. I think we’re good on loops for the rest of 2019 now ;)
Would also like to issue a correction for not accounting for Jordan Trahan’s kickflip in last week’s countdown. Everyone makes mistakes, but that was a massive failure in reporting on our part, and we won’t allow it to happen again.
