Video: Skatesgiving Hangs Loose

Not only do I think this is my favorite Skatesgiving 2012 video yet — this might be my favorite longboarding video. Our good buddy Brian Peck, Anthony Flis, Matt K, Patt Schep and Ben Dubes keep it super chill on a super fun looking downhill run as well as the Woodward Snake Run. I can’t express how jealous I am because that snake run looks like the most fun thing ever — a new thing on my bucket list without a doubt. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.

Video: Skatesgiving Does Soldiers of Downhill 2012

While record numbers of people flocked to New York City in October for the Broadway Bomb, another set of shredders headed out to Ohio to take place in one of the fastest races in the country, Soldiers of Downhill. The race course is gnarly and makes for some absolutely epic racing. This year the Skatesgiving 2012 crew made Soldiers part of their trip, and I couldn’t be more thankful. The East Coast’s own, Brian Peck, along with McLovin and Gabe took the the camera, displaying some smoooooth steadicam action and great camera angles; as always, Matt K kills the edit. Give it a peep and let us know what you think in the comments.

Video: Brian Peck Chills the Pace

When a new Skatesgiving video comes out it’s automatically a good day, when it involves our good buddy Brian Peck, it’s even better. Brian is an east coast OG and one of the gnarliest skaters I know, both on the hill and in the park, and always manages to keep sessions fun and chill. Brian takes to what looks like an epicly fun and chill run in the Carolinas to show that while charging runs full steam is always fun, sometimes you gotta chill the pace back, relax a little, and get some good ole casual crusisn’.

Video: Connor’s Skatesgiving

When I started writing for SkateTheEast, I told myself I wouldn’t post any of my own videos, make it strictly homies from up and down the east coast, but today I’m going against what I promised myself. I’ve been wanting to use this song in an edit for a while and when I finally got some half-decent footy to go with it, I couldn’t resist posting here for all you skate blog followers. Thanksgiving is a rad holiday because all your homies are home from school and already narrow streets become more narrow and fun because all of the extra vehicles parked on the street. I skated for a while, had fun dodging the extra obstacles on the road and decided to break out the GoPro to film a couple corners and some selfie shots. Check it out..
