This was dropped about a week or so ago on Thrasher, but I never got to post it, so here it is in all of it's glory!
Incredibly strange song, but the skating is sick. Check out Daniel's new part!
Jaws is an anomaly. When this part dropped a month or two ago, I almost fell out of my chair watching the madness. Now Thrasher gives us the tricks with behind the scene footage and needless to say, just watching this I had sweaty palms.
I have to be honest, I haven't seen many parts from Boo, but DAMN, this part is sick. I'm talkin' tricks landed almost on top of dogs and gaps to rails left and right. Check it out below from Thrasher.
If you've been on social media at all today, you may have seen a bunch of skaters wishing Ryan Sheckler 'happy birthday'. We'd like to do the same here on Shred Social. Along with that, here are some of our absolute favorite skate parts and videos from the birthday man!
Let's go back in time for this first video. All the way back to Almost Round 3, where most of us were introduced to this shredder. His ollie to the street in this part amazes me to this day.
After his debut, full part, we all had to wait awhile for a new part to drop. Eventually, Oakley dropped his "Our Life" part.
Shortly after, Sheckler joined Plan B skateboards. The video starts with what i can only imagine was one of the best days of his life at a Thrasher contest. Watch the madness.
Fast forward to 2013 and Etnies releases "Ryan Sheckler 15 years". This is probably my favorite, as it goes through his life as a pro skater and before. (Let's skip over the MTV part.)
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't include his most recent part in the Plan B video. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a good video online, so you may have to pay for this one, but I promise you won't be disappointed. Even though we didn't get to see El Toro being backside flipped as promised, the video is still a testament to how good Sheckler has become over the years. Whatever your feeling are about him, you can't deny, this dude absolutely rips.
I had the absolute pleasure of briefly meeting Evan Smith at Houston's Texas Skate Jam last month. It was great to see him shred live. Thrasher has recently released a "Best Of" of the man and it's sick. Check it out below!
Kechaud is a good friend from here in Dallas and it's great to see him get the coverage he deserves. Watch Kechaud rip in his new Darkstar part, only on The Berrics!
Skateboarding media is currently in an insane state. Someone drops a new skate part every day and it's extremely hard to keep up. I feel like it's similar to porn. We become desensitized to it all, but when you see a REALLY good video, you know it. The kind of video that makes you go, "WHELP, that video was so good I just shit my pants." The following are the top 5 videos (not porn) that made me have to change my boxers.
1. Cody McEntire's Smoke and Mirrors
2. Chris Joslin's Plan B part
3. Daewon Song's Enter the Daewon
4. Chris Haslam's United by Fate part
5. Joey Brezinski in Right Foot Forward
I love watching videos of spots I've never seen. Every time I do, I relate it to a spot and a trick I've never thought of trying. For me, that's what the newest video from New Balance gave me. It's crazy how foreign these spots seem and yet cognitively, they instantly connect with a spot we have at our disposal. Skateboarding is a great thing. Check out the new below.
