Here's one of the heaviest vert sessions to take place in recent memory, including rippers from three generations: Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, Rune Glifberg, Lincoln Ueda, Mike Frazier, Chris Russell, and many others.
This dude is a teenage wrecking ball; a concrete hooligan on four wheels hellbent for radical. Get outta the way or get run over!
If you watched American Psycho you know what a crazy style Chris Russell has. Here are some photos and an interview about working on the video, being a hyperactive ginger, and not being scared of hanging up on the coping.
Get ready for four plus minutes of an American Psycho, Chris Russell starting out your week Monday morning.
Considering both thighs hit the coping, The Muscle's side-wall tumble coulda been a lot more deadly.
Seems like every new clip we see of Chris he grows an inch and his skating just keeps getting gnarlier.
Vert skating is still some of the heaviest shit you can do on four wheels. Upstarts Jimmy Wilkins, Tom Schaar and Sam Beckett trade walls with legends Rune Glifberg, PLG and Jake Brown. And then there's the dudes who've never worn pads in their lives - Chris Russell gets stuffed then shuts it down!
Here's one last session in the square with Russo, Russell, Stevens and crew at Channel St before they close the park down for a month.
The Hellride gets gnarlier every year. Raybourn claims the top spot, Ronnie literally gets caked, and Charlie Blair shuts down the festivities with a taildrop of death. Happy Halloween!
In October 2008 the world collapsed. Six years later the Rumble in Ramona gets resurrected. Some things change but this is one export that China doesn't want. Smell the glove, vert dogs rule.
It's been five years since the last Rumble in Ramona went down. The vert ramp got a new facelift and the session was back on.
This DIY thing is nothing new, but we've seen more concrete poured recently than ever before. Big ups to everyone that's put in work. Channel Street has been a San Pedro staple for a while now and Ronnie, Robbie, Oscar and many more went to work before they shut it down.
Garric Ray brings you this week's 'five' with Frank Shaw, Cody Lockwood, Chris Russell, Sean Conover, and Dane Brady.
Eerily reminiscent of Carbondale 10 years later, the song remains the same. Pedro Barros took 1st in bowl and Couch wore no shoes. Algorta BOWL-A-RAMA and P-Stone were there.
These Copenhagen sessions are too heavy. The bowl gets brutalized before Ronnie shuts down a padless vertical assault. Thank you Denmark...
