It has been a while since we have seen Shawn skate but this is actually quite nice and the collab with Fila and Majestic is cool as well. Pop shove-it 5-0 fs shove-it is a highlight for us but you can find your own, there is something for everyone.
First off, the skating in this video is obviously high-level but the thing we instantly noticed was a case of a musical “who wore it better”.
The battle is between Leon Rodulph’s 2backpacks video and Grand Collection’s “Buggy” Video. You be the judge!
When your favorite filmer films your favorite skaters. Well, in that case, it has to be written in past tense because this was filmed before 2010. Alex Olson in Lakai’s, Jake Johnson skating an AWS Board and Janoski in Janoskis, ha. Some things never change. Go, watch the video it is amazing:
Sage is one of our favorites not only because of his skating, his vibe is what really sets him apart from all others. This video part really combines those aspects without even saying a word or hard selling the shoes (That looks great btw). Anyway watch this part, put on Illmatic afterwards and book a spring flight to NYC.
Here we have an episode of “Eat Like a Local” with 5 Boro professional skateboarder Jordan Trahan. For a day Jordan is showing us around his favorite haunts in the Lower East Side. There is also a little skating here and there:
When Alltimers first came out it felt like something quintessentially New York a.k.a. “a NYC thing.” but things have changed. Today the squad is packed with a bunch of Canucks which isn’t a bad thing by the way. It is kind off like Hip Hop it came from New York but the top artist at the moment is Canadien. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that Hip Hop music and culture will always be from the Bronx! Drake is just doing it best right now.

One of the nicest things about the current state of the skateboard industry is that there are a lot of new companies with fresh ideas popping up and right of the bat Hotel Blue seems to be carving a lane for itself with this video. We feel that new companies tend to work out best when the person running the show has an opinion of his own and since this company is run by the same person that created LurkNYC we are sure the company will have a strong direction. All in all, we like the vibe, the team, the skating, and this clip, and if you do too, you should familiarize yourself with Hotel Blue.
