Adidas just released their new nine minute skate video and although I'm not a huge fan of the music choices, the skating is still pretty sick. Check it out below!
Recently, I've been trying to go through all of the skate spots in the DFW area and film a minute or two of footage. My friends and I are only on episode 9 so far, but the point is to create a YouTube playlist and page here on Koonagi to showcase different spots. This will take awhile obviously, but I'm sharing the locations in the video descriptions so skaters here can skate them too.
You can follow us in three different places:

1. Buttery Ass Mondays
When Buttery Ass Mondays ended on The Berrics, I think we all felt the void it had left. If for some reason you've been living under a rock for the past decade and aren't familiar with the show, Buttery Ass Mondays was a skateboarding-based comedy segment that ran until 2010. The show's host, Donovan Strain, went on to create "The Donovan Strain Show" through The Berrics again and his own website Murk Avenue.
I present to you all of the Buttery Ass Episodes in a playlist from the YouTube user ButteryAssMondaysRev. Enjoy.
Gary Rogers is one of funniest dudes I've ever watched in the skateboarding world. He talks shit on everyone and gets away with it and even receives praise for it. No one alive is safe from his comedic opinions.
Originally on The Ride Channel and then Thrasher, this show has only become more popular over the years. Back in 2013, Jenkem Mag ran an interview about Gary that you can find HERE. It walks you through the shows humble beginnings, what's off limits for the show, and whether or not pros talked about on the show are getting pissed. After reading that, come back and check out all of the Skateline episodes below!
3. The Captain and Casey Show
Out of the three on this list, Captain and Casey came first and wasn't internet-based, but rather was on Fuel TV. Everything from their interviews to their segment Built to Shred were fantastic. Had the show continued, I have no doubts in my mind that I would still be watching today. I really miss Dirty Ernie.
Since this show wasn't on a TV network, it was a little more difficult to hunt down a playlist of all the episodes. Instead, I've compiled a random assortment of clips and segments from YouTube that were from the show. Relive the beauty the was The Captain and Casey Show.
I got to meet Torey at a Best Foot Forward contest a couple years ago and not only does he put out the craziest parts, but he's also just an all around nice dude. (Sorry, Torey, for accidentally knocking you out of your chair while doing an early grab during the contest in Dallas/McKinney.) In the last few days, RedBull has released his new part entitled, "Flatbar Frenzy" and it completely lives up to the name. Check it out below. Keep on killin' it, Torey!
Generally, I don't really like videos where the majority of the tricks are handrails since that's not what I skate. I've always appreciated it, but it never pumped me up to go skate. This part however, has crossed the boundaries from a skate part with rails to the ULTIMATE skate part with rails. I'm not sure if this makes me want to skate, but it definitely left me an awe and confused on what's possible in skateboarding. Watch it below for yourself.
