The heads over at Alltimers thought the people deserve a new video and so they blessed us with this 43-minute video. A lot of amazing skating by everyone but big S/O to Zered Bassett for still killing it. How do you keep that skill level?
We could write a very wacky, but standard website post, something like”Chance Swanson and his friends has a blast! filming this video.” and we would probably not be wrong. But instead, we would like to say, something like “Vancouver videos have stood out not only because of the skating but also because of the music selection.” but in the end, whatever we write the end result should be that you press play because this video is really worth your while.
And with a list of skaters like:
Charlie Hodges, Dustin Henry, Tristan Henry, Ty Peterson, Cole Chalifoux, Jiyun Park, Chance Swainson, Breana Geering, Leon Chapdelaine, Tom Robinson, Kyle Nickoshie, Ben Fenton, Ryan Witt, Dylan Fulford, Tavi Gibson, Aleka Lang, Braeley Wong, Simon Richards, David Barbeau, Jo Reigel, Chen Guevara, Tremaine Glasgow, and Amadou Diallo.
You should agree!
One of the nicest skaters ever gets the QS Remix treatment.
A very strong new Vans video, starting it all off with a full Nick Michel part followed by a Ronnie Sandoval street section, an incredible Dustin Henry part and the list goes on and on. This video is a must watch!

Another Summer 2020 baby. This time it’s a video by one of our favorites Jake Kuzyk and it is featuring: Dustin Henry, Landon Avramovic, Dylan Fulford, Antosh Cimoszko, Evan Hay, Tremaine Glasgow, Keegan Sauder, Chance Swainson & Justin David.
Additional Filming by Antosh Cimoszko.
Just a little 5 minutes to hold us over till the real thing hits us.
Dustin Henry, Zered Bassett, Will Marshall, Etienne Gagne, Ben Blundell,
Charles Rivard, Adrian Vega, Stafhon Boca, Salomon Cardenas, Dougie, And more.
Thank you, Jake, for making this video showing us some wonderful skating in these confusing times.
Jake Kuzyk is probably in the mountains right now doing some ridiculously hard snowboard tricks. But when global warming cuts winter short his is a great skater and an even better filmer.
His work for Antisocial in Vancouver has been some of the best in recent years.
So with all your favorites in this, you simply need to press play and enjoy.
The perfect fit.
We have been fans of Jake Kuzyk’s work for a while now and we are happy to see his new project being basically about his friends which happen to become sponsored by Spitfire Wheels.
Feat.: Etienne Gagne, Dustin Henry, Diego Todd, Ty Peterson, Dane Barker, Nick Michel, Chris Milic and many more.
In our opinion, this is their best compilation yet!
Some unseen stuff and some offcuts from Vans’ Courtesy video edited by one of our favorites.
Mainly Canada focused “Courtesy” delievers with a bunch of good moments and the overall feel good video you want to watch before skating. You have to watch it. At least once.
You have seen the full video, you have read the interviews now it is time for the stuff that did not make it into the full length. Enjoy (the b-sides are always the best anyway)!

Canada keeps on taking the crown even though the weather is shit over there. The north literally has always been on top even though they weren’t for the longest. Enjoy!

Some good footage in this new QS drop off it’s got some of our favorites people like Daniel Kim, Dustin Henry, Zered Basset, Josh Wilson, Kevin Tierney, Louie Lopez, Johnny Wilson (skating) and a very underrated Keith Denley. Enjoy!
Skateboarding is about many things, mostly it is about the skateboarder and his skateboard interacting together. This interaction begins with you learning to stand on the board, pushing, ollieing, shoving the board, nollie, fakie, switch or normal stance. Some learn faster, some slower, but the objective is the same; “Stay on the board.” This article is not about that, this is about getting off the board (and getting back on afterwards), walking or running with or without, maybe even away from the board.
Today we offer you a step by step analysis (lmao) of some of the most influential skaters who got off the board.
A Different Route.
Right off the bat, we start with two of the most classic walks caught on tape! At the same time, both Jason Dill and Louie Barletta use walking to get somewhere or to walk over something they could not get to by staying on the board. Louie’s might be a little more eccentric because not many people skate terraces like he did, but still, both these guys made a lot of people get off the board.
John Motta uses the same principle but instead of picking his board up and taking it with him, he chooses to leave it and jump on the next one. A technique, mostly used by filmers, while filming long lines, with a lot of ups and downs like stairs. Normally I’d go for the pickup but doing it John’s way creates a little more suspense about what is about to come next.
Cruising To The Spot.
I am not totally sure if Mike V just got back from an injury here or if he just has that much pent up punk rock Aggression, but Mr. Vallely does deserve his props for this ‘powerful cruise through the city’ style line! He manages to push skateboarding by keeping it true to his style of skating, whilst at the same time doing tricks that every skater would like to do, while going from one to another spot.
Vincent, on the other hand, seems like he just came from the corner store where he bought a soda, and on his way back, he noticed he could flip his board in there. Probably the most relaxed walk of the bunch, which contrasts quite nicely with Mr. V’s spurt.
The Bail To Pick up a.k.a. The Never Give Up.
This is a more recent phenomenon, ever since iPhone filming became an everyday thing, skaters started to worry less about wasting tape and thus happy accidents made it into our collective memory. The reason why we like this style of walking is because it makes everything seem so much more spontaneous, it reminds us of skating around with the homies, instead of the sometimes tedious process of perfecting things in front of the lens.
The Hop Off, Hop On.
The Hop off and Hop On is a method perfected by one of today’s most influential skaters: Mr. Kevin Rodrigues. He has a knack for wall riding, no comply flipping or throwing down his board (to hippy jump) and moving into the next trick. The great thing about this combination is that everybody can join in, just remember: the most important thing is the rhythm of your walk! Hesitation can sneak in and ruin an otherwise great line.
The Mid Trick Walk Along.
To be honest, a lot of these moves seem to come straight from a Louie Barletta, who should be on everybody’s favorite skater list by now. Go watch his parts and you will notice that the only difference is that these tricks are done in a serious manner, instead of with a weird hat and a Rod Stewart track. Anyway, you have to find the right trick and spot (a long slide) to do this but if you do the possibilities are endless.
Walk The Line.
This one doesn’t really need any explaining, does it?
Walking as a mode of skating.
A fancy way to say that walking can be the actual main dish instead of a side order that only add’s to the meal. Case and point CK1’s stroll on these metal arm rests, imagine him replacing that walk with a series of hippy jumps, it wouldn’t be the same right?
The Stop Walk And Roll.
This is the only section that doesn’t involve the board moving before hand, it is the simple idea of placing your board somewhere (very high in this case) and jumping on it. Most skaters use this to test out spots but very few use it as a means to an end, which it can be in the right hands. In our opinion, this is the little brother of the caveman nosegrind that Andrew Allen popularized a while back. We say little because everybody can try this one at almost every spot.
The Walk Home.
For the older skaters amongst us, this is a pretty common thing. You need to wrap up the session because your significant other wants to home and the baby needs to be fed, time to go, leave the board and take a walk home.
Alltimers went to Barcelona complained about the rain (at least it didn’t snow) but still came back with 8 minutes of high-class footage.
When Alltimers first came out it felt like something quintessentially New York a.k.a. “a NYC thing.” but things have changed. Today the squad is packed with a bunch of Canucks which isn’t a bad thing by the way. It is kind off like Hip Hop it came from New York but the top artist at the moment is Canadien. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that Hip Hop music and culture will always be from the Bronx! Drake is just doing it best right now.
