The internet really has disproved the old adage 'if you throw enough shit at a wall, some is bound to stick'. Turns out that when it comes to skate footage, a more appropriate quote would be 'if you throw enough shit at a wall, the watcher's memory will be overwhelmed and drowned in metaphorical faeces'. Which, admittedly, isn't as catchy. But it is apt; which is why we decided it was high time to offer a regular end of the month reminder of what's been good, or at least what I specifically think has been good.
Here you'll find some select slices of stoke from the month of October, including the Serious Adult crew, Ronnie Sandoval, Gilbert Crockett, Blinky and Dean Greensmith, Philippe Da Rosa and more - enjoy...
Up first is the latest Serious Adult edit from the brains of George Toland and Greg Conroy, featuring the all important elements of a) rad street skating and b) lurkers.
No way this wasn't making it onto the list - 17 minutes of fresh footage from Real, dropped seemingly out of the blue? Stoked is an understatement!
My personal favourite video of the year so far, gnarly skating and violent hi-jinks in equal measure...
Put Mark Stern, Daryl Dominguez, Ryan Price, Nick Roberts and Manny Lopez in a van and you're pretty much set for any terrain you might encounter. The Rollersnakes Summer Tour hit some pretty janked terrain as well, embrace the crust!
Blinky and Dean Greensmith, hitting the vortex of Hyde Park in a way not many have...
Philippe Da Rosa's Monkeyglove section undoubtedly turned a few heads as to what the Essex youth was capable of, rough 'crete by the bucketload.
Two of the UK's steeziest, raw street footage and banging UK hip hop, this one is on regular rotation when street hype is needed.
Leeds' newest DIY getting a proper seeing to during the clam's inaugural jam. RWTB
It makes little to no sense that someone could film a section like this in a two day span, Ronnie Sandoval is next levs.
Sam Beckett's surprise pro board from Blind Skateboards was presented to him at a session where he showed exactly what you can do with the House of Vans bowl if you're fucking gnarly. A proper good crew session!
Supra's 'Dispatched' was a rad look at the London skate scene past and present, despite the accidental inclusion of some resolutely Glasgow-based handrails, and is well worth a watch to hype up a capital-bound skate mission.
Bonus; its Krooked Skateboards in NYC, what skateboarder isn't going to enjoy that?
