Van’s Park Series: Vancouver Photo Recap

| Articles | No Comments
[o]Skylar Kehr Van's Park Series came to Vancouver on their world tour this past weekend. I'll be the first to say this was some shit I have never seen before. Last years stop in Van had some big names but mostly the North Westerners and a few random Yankee's scattered throughout the field. This year the squad was mental. From heads like Greyson Fletcher and Grant Taylor, and also some Euro dudes like Ivan Federico and Robin Bolian to mention a few. I made it on the deck at Hastings just in time for the semi finals. Shit was popping...

Photo Feature: The Timebomb Video

| Articles | No Comments
Jason Wilson - Hardflip. [0] Ty James When was the last time a cross Canada video was done? Like, 10 years ago? Maybe more. There have been tons of great local videos that have been released over the last few years. Shortboarding, Contact High, the list is practically endless. I love it, I love that skateboarders everywhere are committed to putting their stuff out there. In a day and age where the internet can turn out what amounts to hot garbage and call it “content”, the people who care about this little corner of the world are trying to do...

Taylor Senft - Bs Flip Photo: Ty James In today’s society if you don’t have a digital camera the average person tends to look at you like “you’re wasting your time”, but those who know, know too well. Film is one a kind, it cannot be duplicated by any digital device ever made. you can try and even get pretty close in certain situations, but when it comes to an artistic eye you can pick out a film photo within seconds if its next to a digital photo. A lot of skaters gravitate to art in some form or another....

Photo Feature: Zone 3

| Articles | No Comments
The Zone 3. Pretty much the only place you don’t want to be in the lower mainland. Not to say there isn’t some nice areas in Surrey… wait, no there isn’t any nice area’s in Surrey haha. Zone 3 is a staple in the BC skate scene, raising Rippers like the Decenzo brothers, John Hanlon and Magnus Hanson. Clearly, there is something in the water down there. I spent the last 8 months rolling around with Dave and all the homies putting in work for his video dropping January 9th called ZONE 3. I roll with a bunch of different...

Dillon! My G, how's things? Things are the best they’ve ever been. Super stoked on life. Yes! When did you decide you wanted to move out here? During my bus ride to Vancouver, to do a demo in price George with the Timebomb guys. I decided Vancouver is where I wanted to live! Where did it all start, and who were your main influences? I started skateboarding when I was 7 years old living in Oshawa. My main influence was Ryan Robitaille. Who did you usually roll with in Toronto? When I’m there I roll around with Michael Kazik, Ben...

Last Try: Skylar Kehr

| Articles | One Comment
Skylar usually skates things other people have overlooked or choose not to fuck with. This spot was made by a few locals Graeme Betts, Ali Yaq and Sheldon Barr. There was a small concrete hill on the other side of the basketball court that people used to try and skate. After building the quarter pipe the spot started seeing a few more people. On this day I was talking to mickenzie an hour or 2 prior to the sesh and he said he was rolling there with Doyle and Sky. I live a block away so I grabbed my bag...

This One Time: Seth Cardinal

Seth Cardinal - Kickflip Seth is the dude you wish you had when you find those perfect hidden gem spots. The day we shot this Kickflip we most definitely didn't plan it, pretty much like every other day I roll with Seth. we ended up at UBC where there was a capped manny and a couple of the homies started taking the caps off with a skate tool. I wondered off for a bit and found this gap over pole right by a couple other well known spots, after the manny session we rolled down and Seth popped a few...

Dakota Alison is a Local VX Filmer from Vernon BC. I first met Dak about 3 years ago threw some homies I worked with, I ended up going on a few sessions with him and a few people he was filming with for a video called Outhouse Squid, his first Vancouver video, which is a quality piece of Vx mastery if I must say myself. After outhouse, Dak started filming with more people and went on a few significant trips and decided to make Shortboarding. I asked him a few questions about Shortboarding and the struggle behind filming a Vx...

Tyjae Farrugia-Armstrong – Sugarcane The Skate Loft. Exactly what the dot has been missing threw the rough winters of the East Coast. Living in Vancouver we get those few random days a month to get out and skate, but even when it’s nice here in the dot, there’s still 3 feet of snow to deal with. Times is hard styll, that’s why the homey Evey and a few other contributors came together and copped this spot… The Skate Loft. Dillon Moore – Kickflip I recently took a trip home to Shwa city this winter and realized the only thing keeping...
