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?

The guy directly above in the mailbox is Ian Reid. Ian is doing something (at least I think) that is incredibly awesome with a video camera. He’s making videos of the oddities that happen around him on a daily basis through skateboarding.
This is kind of the original video of it before “Streets is Talking” started coming together, he explains the idea and how it began pretty well in this:
The trailer for his new video called “Streets is Talking” seems like there are more clips of him looking for weirdness wherever he is and not just waiting for crazy shit to happen around him and I am beyond excited to see it. check it out:
Looks sick right? Here are some more miscellaneous clips if you liked it too much and wanna keep watching:

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?

We’ve posted a couple of times on the Longboard Girls Crew, each time with a similar message: these girls are some badass dimes who tear shit up all over the world. This time they took a 600 kilometer road trip across Spain, taking advantage of the well-paved and mostly empty roads along the Mediterranean coast. If you have ten minutes be sure to give it a watch:
I gotta say this has my least favorite soundtrack out of the videos so far, but it’s bearable.
This week we have a video of skateboarders falling just short of landing tricks repeatedly. It was shot with a Redlake N3 high-speed camera at anywhere from 500 to 1000 frames per second. Check it out, it’s filled with road rash and bone bruises:
Featured skaters are as follows: David Case, Wes Wallace, Nate Wolkan, Joe Krok, Dustin Blauvelt, Cory Kramer, Brian Martin, Steve Urban, James Smith, David Greenwald, and Adrian Gephart.

Today our “NVRMND People We Like” agenda is dedicated to a thing rather than a person. But we’re sure that if we knew the people behind this project, we would definitely love them. Sneeze Magazine is for sure one of a kind in its category. If GQ were to be the manly city-living guy in his thirties, and Vice the trendy, artsy, and dry-humored hipster, Sneeze would be that skater kid who is smart and cool enough to hang out with both of them, but instead prefers to cruise through the streets, tagging walls and throwing shit at pedestrians.
With four editions published each year, this Canada and New York based magazine pretty much brakes any basic rule of how to collect and spread journalism: no binding, and over sized photography pages that serve the purpose of potential future posters for your bedroom are what Sneeze is about. Still, beautifully put together and full of great photography and interesting, out of the ordinary interviews, “SNEEZE’S mission is to expand the street inspired culture of skateboarding to unexpected references, places and images, thereby presenting to our readers an authentic guide and resource for life today.” The latest issue, # 12, which came out yesterday, features the beautiful young Kate Upton, who really you do not want to miss.
SNEEZE is available at local retailers or it can be bought or can be subscribed to on their website.
Since the phenomenon of rape seems to be more and more popular in modern hip hop, this group of skaters and artists, also known as High 5 Collective, recently produced an unofficial video to Tyler, The Creator’s “Transylvania”, off his latest, “Goblin”. The video is the pure epidemic of what puts OFWGKTA under the label of “shock value music”: skating, drugs, braking things, fighting, and yeah… raping bi**hes; I mean, women. The video is well produced, but, most importantly it shows how much Odd Future has influenced the way and means our generation puts its art out as. Anyway, enjoy:
