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..

Video: East Coast Cookin’ with the Swag Shuffle

While we’re still running our give-away, where you can enter to win a set of Orangatang 80a Stimulus wheels, we figured we’d return to our regular programming and bring you a little TGIF/East Coast video steez.

Friend of the site Mike Girard sent me the final version of his edit from his time back home shredding with Norman Plante and Eric Roth over Thanksgiving. Mike posted a teaser on his Tumblr a little while back showing some absolutely steezy swaged out standies but now we’ve got the whole thing. Sure enough, as promised, Mike and his boys went hard, swaging so hard even the Based God Lil B himself would be proud.

Make sure to keep an eye on Eden Racing’s Norman Plante, he absolutely shreds, making shuv-its and big standees look toooooo easy.

Don’t forget to head over to our Facebook Page to enter the chance to win a set of 80a Stimulus wheels from Skate The East and Orangatang!
