Unaware as they all must have been on this trip it ended up being a swan song in style.

R.I.P. Jake Phelps.

Nike SB’s most eclectic crew went on a demo tour and came back with this weirdly exciting mix of flavors that somehow taste great.

Featuring:

Yuto Horigome, Grant Taylor, Nyjah Huston, Ishod Wair, Hayley Wilson, Donovon Piscopo, and Nicole Hause.

That new new Anti Hero just days after their full length became available on the web.

Only a bit older but still fresh the one-eight moves on into the future.

The description Johnny now John Wilson gave on his Vimeo says it all this is an old clip he probably made right after this Nike SB trip to Argentina. Now it is a video for us all to watch. Enjoy!

What can we say except, new GT footy just dropped and we are excited as hell! And the whole thing doesn’t disappoint, the shoe looks cool and even though the music is somewhat cheezy it does really tye the thing together.

the letter A is the 1st letter of the alphabet the letter H is the 8th letter together they stand for Anti Hero Skateboards. 18 also stand for quality skateboarding and this collab with the swoosh brings us just that featuring Grant, Brian, and Daan in L.A.

The Nike SB team had one hell of a year. Rewatch all the highlights featuring all your favorite skaters.

Not only does this Nike tour video have something that we have been waiting for for a while now, new Vincent Touzery footage!

The real surprise came at the end when the credits said that the 3 main filmers were Johnny Wilson, Matt Bublitz and Cory Kennedy. It seems that Cory is not only a serious talent on the board but seeing him stunting behind the lens makes us wonder when his first video is dropping.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Reggae music is now officially the favorite genre for skate videos in 2017. What else is hot: Grant’s Kickflip (of course), ISHOD WAIR ISHOD WAIR ISHOD WAIR, CK-1’s ability to keep having fun for half a decade now & Donovon’s surf related technique in his movements.

Watch Grant Taylor, Cory Kennedy, Max Palmer, Donovon Piscopo, Ishod Wair, Youness Amrani, Andrew Wilson, Cyrus Bennett, Blake Carpenter and Bobby Worrest in “58 Tour East”.

Skating a mini ramp never looked like so much scary but fun at the same time!
At the same time props for Matt Hudson, the guy who put this together mini ramp skating is not easy to film.

What is up with Eric Koston getting hit by a board in all these clips, lately? We really enjoy Nike SB‘s new series of short films. But, honestly, who wouldn’t wanna watch Grant Taylor cruising? This guy really just lets his skating talk, and that will solve the rest for him. Good one!

Ishod Wair, Grant Taylor and Cory Kennedy are three guys that surely know how to ride the concrete waves. Here’s 6 minutes of footage of them skating bowls in Montana and Idaho.

Ishod Wair’s ability to get better at skateboarding every time something new comes out does not seem to calm. Here’s a nice new piece by NikeSB for Ishod’s Dunk Low Pro. Keep em coming, man!

Grant Taylor and Collin Provost take skateboarding to another level and having the last part together in the new Volcom video Holy Stokes is of course well-deserved!

Volcom just released their second teaser for their new movie Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening. It has been some time since Volcom has released a film focussed just on skateboarding, but the videos they put out always have been top notch. For this one they asked cinematographer Russell Houghten shine his light on Volcom’s skateboard division, a promising partnership that makes this up and coming release a must watch.

Looks like the new thing for this year is having skateboard events by the beachside. And guess what: we don’t mind that! Mille Grazie to Vans for the invitation to this year’s edition of the Vans Spring Classic. It’s the most popular mini ramp contest in Italy, not only showcasing some of the best transition skaters from Europe but also from the U.S.. The Anti Hero team showed up including Grant Taylor who definitely turned out to be the biggest name to annihilate this amazing and newly built ramp. Located in the beach town of Riccione, close to Rimini, the Spring Classic not only offered insanely great skateboarding, but also a lot nice entertainment surrounding the main event – from concerts, to parties, free beers, all the way to girls in blue dresses dancing like there’s no tomorrow. All in all, it was a weekend where it was easy to get a solid sunburn while watching mini ramp skating at it’s best while meeting awesome people. The Italians call it la dolce vita – and we want more!

Hier sind die Fotos, die niemand Geringerer als Arto Saari geschossen hat:

Round up shot

Das Jahr hat 365 Tage und in der Regel erscheint täglich mindestens ein Full Part. Wir gehen also ungefähr von 365 Skatern im Jahr aus. Bei diesen 365 Full Parts sind uns nur einige wenige wirklich im Gedächtnis geblieben. Genauer gesagt haben wir zehn in unserer Liste. Wenn man sich diese Liste mal etwas genauer anschaut, wird man schnell merken, dass davon ein großer Teil vom Thrasher Magazine präsentiert wurde, was anscheinend heutzutage der womöglich wichtigste Kanal zu sein scheint. Unsere persönliche Top Ten des Jahres, direkt aus dem Office:

10. Taylor Nawrocki : TransWorld Skateboarding “El Sol”
Wir fangen an mit einem neuen Gesicht von der Eastcoast. VX 1000 Aufnahmen aus Valencia.

09. Cory Kennedy : Rat Poison
CK1 gehört definitiv zu unseren Lieblingsskatern, noch dazu passt der Song wie die Faust auf das Auge. Cory for the win!

08. Ben Raemers : Tiltmode Episodes “Bad Boy”
Ziemlich überraschend kam Bens Part und so ist er uns auch in Erinnerung geblieben. Tiltmode enttäuscht nie.

07. Bobby Worrest : Thrasher Magazine “Luxury & Loudness”
Keine Liste ohne Bobby.

06. Madars Apse : “Subject Madars”
Der einzige noch in Europa lebende Kandidat in dieser Top 10.

05. Dylan Rieder : HUF “The Dylan”
Anders und provokant und vor allem gut.

04. Rob Wootton : Thrasher Magazine “Name Changer”
Wenn man seinen Vornamen ändert, und das mit einem Full Part von solch einem Kaliber, landet man gerne in unserer Top 10. Alle Angaben sind ohne Gewähr.

03. Grant Taylor : “GT Blazer” Nike SB
S.O.T.Y. all year, every year..

02. Wes Kremer : DC Shoes “Crusty By Nature”
..und im Anschluss der neue S.O.T.Y.

01. Jake Johnson : Static 4
Jake Johnson war in diesem Jahr präsent wie selten zuvor. Verdient auf der Pole Position und wir hoffen, dass das im nächsten Jahr genau so aussieht.
