Video: Josh Wright Raw Run in Upstate NY

Josh “Wild” Wright is one of the most fun people I know in addition to being one of the most fearless and gnarly skaters the east has to offer. While in Upstate New York for the I Love Downhill weekend, Josh took a quick detour to another gnarly hill for a fast as f00k freeride session, throwing huuuuuuge standies where most people would have a hand down. Fortunately for us someone had the car mount on hand and was able to get it all on film. Josh does a fine job making it look too easy and makes me fiend for a fast freeride session sometime in the near future.

We’ve written about the Long Island native and Landyachtz rider in the past, so make sure you’re familiar with his back catalogue, too. Leave your thoughts with us here in the comment section below!

last turn of the freeride section, steep, banked, way too much fun.

Last weekend a couple of East Coast skaters, Tom Leary, Jordan Billingsly, and Alec Caputo, crashed at my house for a slide jam and a dank day of shredding. We woke up early and skated until we couldn’t. We also got some ridiculously dank sandwiches at my local deli. The slide jam was cool, buncha shredders showed up, no problems with the police, and the locals were pretty stoked for the most part, all in all it went very smoothly. After the jam we munched on said sandwiches and headed to this gnarly, turny, steep ass road that we sessioned for the rest of the day. A lot of other cool people came too, like Josh Wright, Laura Nocka, Noah Davis, …josh, and Tyler Doherty. Everyone was ripping, and we managed to film some clips that Tom threw together to make an incredibly rad edit. Check this video out and subscribe to his channel, kid knows how to make a fucking video!!

SHOUT OUT TO ZEN LONGBOARDS FOR KEEPING IT REAL AND SPONSORING THE SLIDE JAM!

.. Oh yeah and Alec made an edit too. You probably already saw it in one of our previous posts but I’m gonna re post it here anyways. Check out Alec’s channel for solid edits of some skaters doing it right on the Right coast.

Video: New Jersey Shredding

Rad East Coast skaters Jordan Billingsley, Josh Wright, Noah Davis, Laura Nocka, Tom Leary, and Connor Bewighouse shred down what appears to be a pretty steep lefty turn.  I got one word to describe this video….BANGER….check it out for sure defiantly worth a watch.  Also keep an eye out for SkateTheEast’s newest member Connor Bewighouse, he’s got that GNAR in him.

Eden Racing Precision Spacers Give-Away and Video

I think we can all agree that few things are better in this world than free stuff. Quality free stuff is even better, which is why I felt the need to turn your attention to a give-away our friend Russ at Eden Racing is running right now.

The precision spacers that have been gaining quite a name for themselves throughout the Northeast for killing chatter have been back in stock for a couple weeks now, and Russ has decided to give away sets to 5 lucky people who “Like” their page on Facebook and share the contest post. The contest is going to run for a week, meaning you have until Thursday (1/19) to share the post with your friends — make sure the privacy setting is set to “public” so that they can see your entry! If you click on the image below it will take you to the Facebook post to share!

You’ll also probably remember me mentioning that I got a chance to shred with Eden rider Josh Wright along with Lauren Suchocki and Russ for a couple days last week in Western Mass. Josh and Russ ended up getting some helmet cam footy and posted it on YouTube last night. The last run was quite a surprise, especially for Lauren and I who saw it live, and we’re stoked Josh and Russ got it on camera! If it looks similar to the video that Lauren and Douglass Schmidt did not long ago, it’s because it was filmed at the same location. Peep it below:
