You gotta give credit where it's due: this downhill format injected a lot of speed and gnarliness into the usual contest scene. Here's Raven Tershy, Nick Merlino, Alec Majerus, Kelvin Hoefler, the incredible Ryan Sheckler and many others.
Downtown Portland went off all weekend. Closed down the streets, built the course in one night and kicked it off with the Best Trick. Alec and Kelvin got buck!
Trick selection, power, style - Jake has it all, and then some. This video part makes you wanna blast over something.
This quick and raw edit gives you a glimpse into the life of one of skating's rad characters. Also includes Stefan Janoski, Jimmy Cao, and others. The drop-in plunge with Jake Johnson at 0:37 is sick.
We didn't know what to expect from this tour vid. But you can't go wrong with a focus on incredible ditch terrain and fun, unique skating.
Welcome picks creative skaters who can also totally rip and that describes Ryan's skating perfectly. Here's some cool trick choices, unexpected manuals, and beastly boardslides (in both stances).
The caliber of skating is reaching incredible heights. A gang of rippers descended on an abandoned Detroit warehouse and went ballistic. Enjoy...
