Video: Raw Run-Mike Girard

Mike Girard, A.K.A Dad, went real fast on his skateboard the other day, in fact, nearly triple the posted speed limit. Mike is the organizer of the beloved Central Mass skate festivals and as you can see here he not only talks the talk, but he most certainly walks the walk. Watch here as Mike reaches speeds up to 70 miles per hour down this Western Mass gem.

AGP GLOBSQUAD 2013 B-SIDES

Asheville Ganj Patrol provides us with some clips form the yesteryear that apparently didn’t make “the cut.”

Nonetheless, this here series of moving pictures is still worthy of viewing as they take you through the year’s bails and unused footage alongside a chill, funky tune to cap it all off.

Check it out, or don’t haha, either way these guys are having a blast skating down in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and when they aren’t there, you can catch them shotgunning beers and poaching runs at your local races. Cheers to skateboarding!

Video and Interview: John Kreutter

John Kreutter Boneless

John Kreutter is probably one of the biggest names on east coast downhill scene at the mere age of 16. One may call it big fish small pond but I just call it like I see it. We were able to catch John on the book of faces for a quick little  chit chat about his new video, the winter, and the future.

Connor: Alright so about the video, when did you shoot it and how long did it take to film?
JK: We filmed the video about 3 months ago before winter started up. It took us 2 days to film

Connor: Nice nice. Speaking of winter, what have you been up to since all this snow can restrict when and where you can skate?

JK: I’ve been in lurk hibernation mode. Skating when it’s possible because there’s snow all over the place. Mainly just been taking a little break from non-stop skateboarding. Stoked to get back into the groove of things for the 2014 Season.

Connor: Yeah! This year should be rowdy especially with the new Push Culture race series here on the east coast. What are you looking forward to the most for 2014?

JK: Skating all over the place, having fun, and  shooting videos/photos with friends! Super stoked to get back out to Giant’s Head and the Downhill Disco!

John Kreutter going fastConnor: Do you have anything big in the works with Original? Any inside scoop that’s capable of being shared? Hahah

JK: Haha honestly don’t have anything big in the works at the moment.

Connor: Hahah alright dude that’s about it, any shout outs you wanna throw out to mom, homies, sponsors or whatever?

JK: Thank you mom. (kissy face)

Grant Stubenhofer

Grant Stubenhofer

This kid Grant Stubenhofer is killin’ it in his new edit on RVA Collective. He sent this in to me the other day and i just had to post it. Grant is 16 and hails from down South in Richmond, VA. Peep it as he drops some steezy toe sides and gets creative with the Daisy’s kicktail.

Scope the edit, leave us a comment, like the post, and share – you know how it goes.

Jared Henry in Asheville

Jared Henry in Asheville

Comet Team Rider Jared Henry just dropped a new edit of him shredding in his new home of Asheville, NC. Check out his dope style mixing it up between city and the mountains. Jared has been big on the come-up since making a name for himself at the Ithaca Hill Jam this spring and is absolutely killing the scene like nobody’s business so expect a lot more gnar in the future.

Also take a second and check out his interview with Thane Magazine.

AGP Downhill + Sextagonocopter

AGP Downhill

Some of the AGP Downhill homies — Matt Deitch, Jack Traynor and Jared Henry — somehow got their hands on a “sextagonocopter” for this Metro Wheel Co. edit and the results were gnarly.

Check it out as they make their way down some of the best terrain on the right side of the country. Check them out on Facebook if you get a chance.
