Imagine growing up in a small town which probably isn’t that hard for most of you to do. Now think back to when you started skateboarding together with your “best” friend, a friend who after a while quit skating forcing you to find new “skate” friends. It sucks, doesn’t it?
Do you remember the first time you filmed a trick? Were you in front of or behind the lens? What about the first time you edited some footage? Remember how hard it was to find the right music, edit the trick to the beat only to get a couple of thumbs down on youtube?
“L.A., L.A., Big City Of Dreams”
Prodigy, Mobb Deep, 1996.
Sometimes, some of us get lucky and two small-town people recently got the change to be present in L.A., Hollywood to be exact at the release party for Nyjah Huston’s new Nike shoe and video part. Two of our favorite filmers, Peter Buikema and Leon Rudolph got a chance to party with the pro’s and so they did.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Reggae music is now officially the favorite genre for skate videos in 2017. What else is hot: Grant’s Kickflip (of course), ISHOD WAIR ISHOD WAIR ISHOD WAIR, CK-1’s ability to keep having fun for half a decade now & Donovon’s surf related technique in his movements.
Watch Grant Taylor, Cory Kennedy, Max Palmer, Donovon Piscopo, Ishod Wair, Youness Amrani, Andrew Wilson, Cyrus Bennett, Blake Carpenter and Bobby Worrest in “58 Tour East”.
Bronson Speed Co.’s first tour took the team through the south of the US and besides shotgunning a dangerous number of beers the guys also seem to have an excellent time skating, which resulted in remarkable ten minutes of footage.
Featuring Aaron Homoki, Dakota Servold, Ben Raybourn, Dylan Witkin, Chris Gregson, Blake Carpenter and Aj Zavala.
