More Than Machines Video Trailer

I must say, I’m really not into wakeboarding, maybe its the amount of rednecks in the sport that are only surpassed by the number of rednecks in dirt biking, maybe its the towing of myself behind a giant blender usually driven by someone with below average IQ, I dont now. But I saw this teaser video recently of TransWorld WAKEboarding’s new video and its pretty goddamn impressive. The trailer for this video is really well shot, it seems with big companies like Nike 6.0 that they had a nice large budget to make the rest of the video easy to look at as well.  For the record these guys are not actually wakeboarding, they’re wakeskating which looks way more difficult and also much cooler, so that definitely helps keep it more interesting. Check it out:

 

Looks pretty damn fun right?

Gou Miyagi: Goin H.A.M. for Japan

The best description I’ve heard of Gou Miyagi would be calling him an “avant-garde” skateboarder. I’ve been checking out clips of him on the internet for a little while now and I’d have to say, style wise, this guy is pretty goddamn buckwild. Hailing from Japan, he is definitely showing people that it is still possible to have a very personal and unique style in this sport. Check him out:

Pretty next level right?

Danny Hart’s World Championships Winning Run

Danny Hart’s winning run at the 2011 downhill mountain biking World Championships is insane! Downhill mountain biking is essentially a time-trial event down the side of a ski hill. This video shows a phenomenal course in Champery, Switzerland, some talented riding, and includes some ridiculous commentary. Enjoy!
