Handplants and Channel Blasters

Down south has a ton of spots to skate. Ronnie Sandoval and Chris Russell came down form the south bay to hook up with Tom Remillard and Willis Kimbel. They tapped into some of the spots - skateparks, ditchs, backyard bowls, and mini-ramps and ended the mission at the Birdman’s facility. Not bad for the weatherman claiming two days of rain.

6/13/2016Some bowl comps generate so much energy that all the skaters get electrified and push each other. This one was insane. Here’s Chris Russell, Greyson Fetcher, Rowan Zorilla, Jack Fardell, Grant Taylor, Ronnie Sandoval, Kevin Kowalski, Pedro Barros, and many others.
6/10/2016Here’s a sick edit to show you what’s in store for the live webcast this weekend in Floripa, Brazil. This terrain is extra buttery so you know the contest is going to be insane.
6/10/2016Crailtap has a new series started with Jr Lensman, Rye Beres, and all his little bowl buddies whose names start with an R. Hopefully this won't be the last one.
