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!
These Copenhagen sessions are too heavy. The bowl gets brutalized before Ronnie shuts down a padless vertical assault. Thank you Denmark...
It's a bit easier to strong-arm interviews with today's younger pros, but here's Jimmy Arrighi at the Vans Pool Party tangling with some legends who can hold their own including Cab, Hosoi, Grosso, Lucero, Agah, and many others.
This huge port in Spain became the setting for an amazing event with DIY skate obstacles, bands, and art. Featuring Kenny Anderson, Ben Raemers, Tom Remillard, and others. As seen in the August mag.
A big ol' vert ramp and a ring of fire all add up to fun day and night. Beckett, Perelson, Rune, and PLG hit the vert hard and the ring got lit up by Ishod, Silas, Reynolds, and Axel. Good times at CPH.
The Combi Pool is one deep pit and here it gets annihilated by the pro ranks, including some wickedly insane padless runs. Here's Fletcher, Glifberg, Lasek, Caples, Barros, and many others.
Eddie Elguera, Holmes, Pedro, Grant, David, Raven, and those crazy Brazilians all add up to video blast Number 1. There's more to come. –Jake Phelps
Vans threw a contest at the Chelsea Piers Bowl and a heavy crew from around the world showed up to rip. The rain held off, Van Doren manned the grill with free hot dogs all day and when the dust settled Lance Mountain took top honors in the masters division and Pedro Barros won the Pro.
Back at the FÆLLEDPARKEN park in Copenhagen for this year's bowl & snake contest. Rune should have won, but didn't. Yes, we're still alive...
First rip-ride in Northampton. Vert and street. The riot at the bar Five Bells was 10 times better than this shit. Mini-vert and warm beer, Justin Ashby rules!
Monster and DC vert party: Good times, no collisions, P-Stone BBQ. End it early or it would've gone all night.
