A harsh contest environment with bowl competitors fighting for a win? Hell no. Everyone had a blast, pushed themselves, and cheered each other on. What a great comp. Thanks everyone!
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...
Crusty, homegrown spots aren't new, and yet they're one of the most interesting and vibrant things going on in skating today. This essay and photofeature looks at the appeal of DIY skating. Long live 'crete!
Skateboarding's premier talent manager takes over Burnout today, offering some photo gold from his time in the van with the best. Thanks, Sam!
The second half of the trip Durban to Cape Town got heated. More road miles, skate camps, pools, and handrails. Cory gets a trick in Birkenstocks? And it ts a wrap.
Didn’t get enough with the magazine article, web videos, and yardsale? Well, here's some more South Africa stoke.
Preston has done a lot of miles with a lot of skate legends but this trip ranks up there as one of the true greats. Here's a last blast of outtakes and random footage.
Cape Town was the last spot and the crew rolled through, got some good shit, and then headed home. We fucking made it!
Rhino brings you this week's 'five' with David Loy, Dolan Stearns, Raney Beres, Raven Tershy, and Grant Taylor.
Out of the Valley and right into an epic backyard pool. Raney, Raven, Ronnie, Cory, and Grant ripped this gem.
Raven's all smiles on this full-sprint approach, but even with his unreal balance and natural skate talent, this one goes straight to hell.
This is one of the craziest ditch sessions we've ever seen. So sick. The crew handled it in the heat and then went off to the land of a thousand valleys for more skating and a BBQ.
Cory Kennedy, Grant, Ronnie, Raven, and Raney together in the wild of South Africa? WOW. The crew kicks things off in Johannesburg before spending the night in Kimberley.
A full week of edits from one trip? With this crew, you're damn right: Cory Kennedy, Grant Taylor, Raven Tershy, Raney Beres, Ronnie Sandoval and Pat McClain. Even we can't wait to see the final edit on these.
