Even Mother Nature couldn’t stop Mother Hastings from going mental this weekend. Congratulations to Alex Sorgente for taking home 1st place and to Dalton Dern for conquering the infamous Hastings transfer.
Alex Sorgente won, Cory Juneau got second, and Brad McClain got third. Here's some of the highlights from each of the top 3's runs with the full edit coming soon...
This is not your average team montage. Kyron, Brad, and Adrien all come correct. The part's only up for 24 hours, so stop reading and start watching.
Cliché started out as a squad of Euro all-stars, but in 2015 they're a more international bunch. With the Gyspy video now available, let's take the time to meet the team members from our side of the pond... plus Aussie powerhouse Andrew Brophy.
This clip from Rubbish Heap features footage that didn't quite make the cut from Brad McClain's "Welcome to Cliché" edit.
The Euro contingent of the Cliché team was stuck on the other side of the pond, but that didn't stop Hart, Espinoza, Brezinski, McClain, and Brophy from putting in an afternoon of hard work.
They didn't have much time to film but the Cliché dudes have a bunch of talent so they were able to stack sick clips here. Featuring Brad McClain, Paul Hart, Daniel Espinoza, and Joey Brezinski.
The Cliché video brought out all of the skaters in the Bay last night. Check out some photos by Joe Brook here.
Brad McClain storms onto the Cliché team like a damn Viking, pillaging and plundering any transition that dares to get in his way. This here is an absolute mini ramp massacre.
This guy is a wrecking ball on wheels. He goes big, he goes fast, but he also has the technical touch along the coping. Take special note of the backside Ollie over the stairs in the pool's shallow end. Wow...
For the past couple of years, he's been a word-of-mouth phenomenon. "You gotta see this guy skate," is what people kept saying. Well, this Friday everyone will get to see him. We're looking forward to this one.
Rhino caught up with Brad McClain to talk about skating contests, injuries, and his new video part dropping this week.
This bowl has plenty of room but Brad skates so fast that he's able to hit one wall right after another. That nosegrind!
Now that the dust has settled take a look at some of Rhino's photos from last weekend's contest at Hastings.
Great weather, beautiful women, amazing Canadian hospitality, insane skating, and one of the gnarliest slams of all-time. This one had it all, with Alex Sorgente taking home the prize. Chalk up another epic contest to Vans.
Give it up to Vans for another epic contest and to Brad McClain, Raven Tershy and Alex Sorgente for top 3 honors. Here's a lil footage of what got em there. Full edit coming soon...
