Skateboarding's premier talent manager takes over Burnout today, offering some photo gold from his time in the van with the best. Thanks, Sam!
He manages, raps and Lord knows he's hell on a sandwich, but who would have guessed Sam Smyth had a more artistic side behind the camera?
Every team had fun this year, but Chocolate really had a blast. Here's a bunch of outtakes and extra angles.
The stoke and delirium combine as Chocolate nears the end. Here's a gnarly pool roll-in session, tech madness, filmer hijinx, a Too $hort cameo, and Cory Kennedy continues to rip while gaining no points.
It's rad how Chocolate has evolved into such an all-terrain team over the years. Here they skate deep pits, ledges, rails, and there's even a red curb session.
Generator races, jousting, kegboards, and a near disaster of blazing proportions all contributed to the midway madness in Sacramento.
The fives flow like Coors with rooftop Vinsanity, 10-legged downhill and less-than-shy sheboarders. Chocolate KOTR, still in Denver.
Elijah Berle shows his ATV abilities, Stevie Perez battles a backlip shove-it, and the filmer makes a love connection with a girl who has a probation ankle monitor.
Chocolate starts off with an unreal bank-to-wall session, Stevie Perez gets 10 tricks on one handrail, Vincent Alvarez makes everything look good, and Raven gets a wild barefoot boneless.
Oh. Shit. Here we go. Chocolate vs. Real vs. Birdhouse vs. Enjoi. Webisodes start Monday, Jan 6. These are gonna be good.
Vincent always brings those unique tricks and loose style wherever he goes and this time he also brings Ronnie Sandoval, Nakel Smith, and Jon Sciano.
