Vans Asia rented a “Shikumen”, an old Shanghai lane house, for a month and invited the Vans team from all over the world to explore the city. Staying in week-long shifts, the team from the USA, France, Malaysia, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea, and Japan cruised around with the Vans China team as they skated the city of marble, devouring xiaolongbaos and dodging scooters along the way.
Check out Eric Jackson’s Full Part from Pray for Snow: the Movie. 10 Barrel’s rollout continues with this heater of a full part from Eric Jackson. It’s a banger and well worth a watch.
We don’t usually get to see the b-roll and fun moments that make skateboarding what it really is. Landing bangers is what Ishod Wair does a lot of, but doing it while he’s out having fun with his friends adds an extra element of entertainment.
This was a head down freefly jump where the skydivers were flying at 170mph toward earth. Actual jump length time was about 50seconds. Aerial Cinematography by Nicholas Lott
“About halfway down I could see how fast the ground was getting closer and I got this horrible feeling. I don’t think I can accurately describe it, but I just knew that I was screwed. For that second riding down I 100% believed that I was about to die and I just regretted so much. Then everything was dark. I opened my eyes and I was in a hospital bed in a neck brace with Donnie sitting beside me. I turned to him and said “I guess I didn’t land it huh?” – @curtis_cantbmxwell. Photo by Kaleb Bolton.
I love me a best trick contest, especially when it’s 20 minutes long and lets anyone drop as many times as they want. Winner takes $5000, so you know dudes were willing to get buck.
Chris Joslin has taken a break from being the guy who just hucks down massive stuff, and never does any ledge tricks or lines. His new ‘UNSTOPPABLE’ part is all ledge tricks and lines, and he is just a jaw dropping to watch as ever!
It’s not technically a cliff, but these cliff jumpers are willing to make an exception. This edit has all the ingredients for a fun internet video, and you’ll be stoked you hit play.
We probably post two blading videos per year, so if this is going to be one of them, you know the skater is going to be bringing something special. Sam Crofts makes it look good. Enjoy!
K2, in the Himalayas on the Pakistan-China border, is not as tall as Mount Everest, but it is far more dangerous. Many more people die attempting to summit K2 than they do on Everest. More than 4,000 people have climbed Everest, compared to the less than 350 who have reached the peak of K2.
Fresh after Tampa Am last year, Vincent had his heart and mind set to kickflip frontside lipslide the Hollywood 16. Witnessing that in person was flat out jaw-dropping! That pretty much ignited him into filming this part within five to six months.
“Sometimes you don’t get to learn from your BASE jumping mistakes because you’re dead. You think you’ve got something, you’re confident about it, then you let your guard down for just a split second too long, complacency kills people. That was gnarly” – @adrenaline.addiction.
Colby Ruigrok has to be one of the most technical scooter riders out. In this web edit he doesn’t stop spinning and whipping his scooter the whole damn time! Colby has been working hard on this Web Edit 2. Blood, Sweat & Tears.
Police in several cities across the U.S. are trying to put a stop to the groups of men waging paintball battles as a part of #PaintballsUpGunsDown — an anti-gun violence campaign police are calling misguided. Detroit Police Chief James Craig said the #PaintballsUpGunsDown movement has gotten out of control and could backfire if officers mistake a paintball gun for a real firearm.
