Last stop for the Vans demo demolishers and Chima, Matt B, Dan Lu and the boys go out with a bang!
Drive by at Orchard, a mainstay of the Boston skate scene
Of course Shredmaster will play you in SKATE
'Where's Elijah Berle?' all the babes want to know
Solid crew. Thanks y'all
A SOTYs work is never done
Move with the music, it helps me
Ah shit, looks like the lookbook started early …
Just counting the minutes until his reign is finally fuckin' over
Lil' liquid stretch, so be it
We better get to that demo
The incredible Lynch Family park
Skytime a' plenty no matter what your implement
Our guy J Lay, always blasting
Matt B? Oh he blasts, too, just in a more funky rail-centric way
DFL, GD right!
J Henry, up the whoop to nosegrind
Kicky 50 first T from our favorite natty dread
Shredmaster works it with tail assist
On the more conventional side, Glick flicks BS
Free shirts for everybody?! Again, GD right
Chima with a fasty off the hospital banks replica
Then the heavy block/rail sesh kicked off. J Lay's showstopper came early today. Must be nice
Fanning out a biggie
Local ripper bigspins out of a noser
Glick back 3
Front blunt, also done to shove (not shown)
Tyson got hella twisted on this 270 lip fakie
Switch flip or fakie flip – Chima's got both
Then The Matt B Show began, offering a master's course in obscure rail delights. Yeah B!
Of course he's got the varial flip! Look at him!
Switch feeble, wow!
This guy had one of the best impossibles I've ever seen. So sick
Pounding out that backside flip like a young Lavar
And yet another finishing move from Johnny
Dan Lu hits the perimeter, smith style
Cool it down, J Lay
Good time to check out the photo rigs on the scene: yep, solid
Canon, nice, nice
She got that clutch!
One of those wide zooms. Tight, tight ..
Not tryna compromise audio just 'cause it's a GoPro
Tyson got that shit built in!
Sony vs Leica, discuss among yourselves
Get that LOW angle
Oh, hey Lovell
Meanwhile, these guys keepin' it Cell Out. Not bad
Chima, water breaking with his peeps
Uhm, thanks for coming out
He's allowed to wear it except at school and when Grandma comes over
Major round wall in the back of this place. The no-footed everybody somehow returns from Jeff Jones' crypt
Not finna dig on no swine, but get yours
Nice to meet you!
Best trick flares up again
Time to check out some creepy skate tats. Solid
Ooh, too sexy!
For Dan Lu, making friends is easy
Ran into the infamous Fancy Lads! Teenage suicide, don't do it
Leave it to Chima to find the real street obstacle at the skatepark
Yep, consider it nailed
Ok, one more. Good times in Boston
Parting is such sweet sorrow
But the streets, they're a' callin'
