The man, the myth, the legend, PJ Ladd and Jessup Griptape just released a small edit filmed at the Lincoln Skatepark. After a PJ-less Plan B True Video, it seems his footage is as elusive as the rarely spotted snow leopard. Granted it’s not the gnarly clips you may expect from him, but relax, it’s still rad to see him skating and having fun. All black and white, super 8 film, only one day and PJ make for a pretty raw and fun video.
It was another scorching weekend for the skate contest world as the Phonix Am 2015 went down with a bang. Over 200 of the best Am’s from all over the world showed up for the event and battled blistering 100 degree plus temperatures. These kids were hungry and killed it all weekend long. After tons of amazing skating it was Jack Olson’s flawless final run that earned him the three grand, along with a refreshing champagne shower. Jamie Foy brought home the second place trophy along with a nice $2,000 cash proze. To finish out the top three it was Ivan Monteiro who walked away with that extra thousand.
We headed up to the Cliché Gypsy Life premiere and realized everyone going with us was either too fat, too dad or too hip to get any tricks. So, we decided to bring SW resident ripper Alex Knight to take care of business. Hangovers, heat and limited time couldn’t slow him down and tricks were stacked. Enjoy!
The lunatics at Slave just released a new part from Shep Dawgs, AJ Zavala. This part is full of heavy skating, anti-drug raps and some killer music. Dude’s got sick style and goes big all day, everyday. Check that frontside feeble, so steezy. Ready for some gnarly half cab grind variations? AJ’s got them on lock. So, here’s AJ Zavala’s sequel to his insane Shep Dawgs ender part from last year. If you look closely you’ll find some hidden Bradley Cooper and Shia Labeouf footage too. Music by Stack Waddy, “With one leap Dan was by her side, ‘Murial’ he breathed”.
Baker and Deathwish came to visit us at Skate Warehouse. They held a signing for the fans, hung out and headed to the park for some shredding. The Baker Deathwish demo was heavy, nothing in that park was left untouched. I can’t even explain how hard those dudes killed it. Who am I kidding? Quit reading this and check the edit out for yourself! Enjoy.
