With Daylight Savings Time in full effect, the days were getting shorter and the nights were starting earlier. It was only appropriate that we got a late start, skated for only a couple of hours before our legs gave out and didn't land anything we really wanted. Skate squad consisted of the usual suspects: Alex Bellerud, Kevin Martinez, Andy Kormos and Ricky Ricardo.
The squad linked up this past Saturday in the Lower East Side to participate in our usual debauchery. With no intentions of filming, subsided by a little help of some friendly authoritative suggestions, this is what they came up with. Skateboard talents by professional pilers Alex Bellerud, Chris Herity, Taylor Nawrocki and Elliot Cook.
Skate All Cities had the honor to link up with legendary skateboarder John "The Man" Reeves one night to film a little segment for our GoPro Vlog Series while cruising in and around SOHO. For all those left in the dark who don't know "JTMR", then maybe this Vice interview will help keep you informed. With cameo appearances by Joey Badass and the lovely aspiring musician Jihan, you know that it was another fun night for the record books.
A couple of nights ago, we rounded up the troops and took a dip from the top of Chinatown while shimmying our way down into the trenches of SOHO trying to explore every spot that we could find. It was another fun
day night to remember in NYC, with an unexpected encounter from movie star Jonah Hill.
We stepped out of our element this past weekend and ended up going out on a #veryrare Sunday excursion to check out the new Cooper Skatepark. Which is currently more than nearly complete, but isn't fully opened to the public at the moment? One hour into our semi-illegal session (before we pulled our cameras out), there was a boo-boo that involved a broken nose as well as an ambulance.
Summer's officially over with a couple of months left before hibernation (aka "Winter") begins. The squad takes full advantage of the limited time they have to enjoy the Fall weather while fine-tuning their flatground tricks. Featuring Alex Reyes, George Chen SAC, Andy Kormos and the MVP of the day, John Downing.
Some friends of friends were visiting from NorCal and on the 6th day of their vacation/rager/skateboarding trip (hungover and all), we got into another late start, linked up at the BQE for a warm-up session and ended up at the Nike SB Pop-Up Skatepark. Skateboarding stunts by Matt Tuite, Young KMART, Fernando Tapia, Charlie Boden and Christian Kerr.
It was another beautiful Saturday afternoon in New York City. We got a semi-late start, rounded up the troops and took a trip to Downtown Brooklyn and zigzagged our way to several new (and old) spots along the way. Skateboarding wizardry by Danny Dorsa, Andy Kormos, George Chen, Nelson Shin and Ricky Ricardo.
