Video: Yokecrew Spring Training

Yokecrew Spring Training

Now that the snow has cleared across much of the east coast it’s time to start seeing some edits again. Some of our boys from the Yokecrew in Maryland — John Kruetter, Ed Garner and Jacob Roberts — got together recently and filmed the first edit of this season. It’s a very smooth video, as usual, with Spencer Flaherty doing the videography and editing.

Kai Monroe Spring Raw Run

Kai Monroe Downhill Design Video

Our homie Kai Monroe started making quite the name for himself at the end of last season when he started dropping gnarly videos on the regular, killin’ it at events, and got picked up as a first round pick for Blood Orange’s Am Team. He just dropped his new raw run for his sponsor Downhill Design wheels. The homie shows that despite the cold and sometimes wet winter, his skills didn’t get very rusty. This video doesn’t do his shredding full justice, but shows that Kai definitely goes hard, check out his little kiss with the snowbank at the end as proof.

Earthwing Gets Down

earthwing-gets-down

And down, and down again. In fact, this is almost two full minutes of the Earthwing guys — Steve Kong, Mac, Andriy Dash, Max, and Ed Nieves — falling over and over again and having some good old fashion fun in between. While we try our best to post our share of super gnarly videos, it’s nice to be reminded every now and then that everyone falls, plus this was too fun not to post.

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)

2013 Recap with Chief Keith

2013 Recap with Chief Keith

Our homie from central CT, Keith Burwood, put together a 2013 recap video and obviously made me an instant fan by calling it ‘Chief Keith’ (#300 #GloGang). Homie has a great mix of some good looking skating and did a great job chopping up the edit and making things look pretty. Check it out and leave a comment with what you thought below – it’s super easy we swear.

Anthony Flis in The Spot V3

Anthony Flis

Anthony Flis is true OG ripper on the east coast. We’ve written about him plenty and he’s been featured in some of the gnarlier film projects taking place out east, including the Skatesgiving series (except for this year’s) and his brainchild, this past summer’s DCDC Tour.

In his new video for Volante Anthony rages his local downhill run, making it look all too easy. Unfortunately he broke his foot the weekend after filming this so they couldn’t get as much footage as they wanted, although it makes for a quick, fast paced, and very entertaining video (props to Blake Smith on the edit). Take a 1:00 to check it out and drop a comment below to let us know what you think.

The Team Mids Pillgrumage

It’s almost like we planned this, cause the planets have aligned, forces of stoke have been felt, and positive vibrations have been received causing both Stretch House Media and Skate The East to come back from the dead AT THE SAME DAMN TIME.

THAT’S RIGHT, WE’RE BACK MOTHA TRUCKAS!

Team Mids Pillgrumage

Peep the newest video out of Stretch House Media, the video child of Eric Roth and one of the official Team Mids video accounts. Team Mids takes New England by storm again and getting cobbled up and shredding some sandy, gnar runs with some clllllassssssssic janky as all hell pavement.

Peep the video below and leave a comment here on the site letting us know how happy you are to see us back in action. Make sure you’re subscribed to our mailing list below so you never miss out on the dank dank as it comes out.

Comet Skateboards DCDC Tour Part 1

Comet Skateboards DCDC TourHellllllll yeah! This is the video I’ve been waiting for since seeing photos and video clips from the homies while they were filming this summer. Some of the Comet Skateboards team linked up with Anthony Flis’ old crew and went to some of the gnarliest skate spots in the mid-Atlantic for the Comet Skateboards DCDC Tour.

The DCDC Tour crew was made up of Comet riders Anthony Flis, Eric Jensen, Jared Henry, Dave Tannaci, Nick Ronzani, Nino Almazon, Brian Peck, Nick Ketner, and Will Seal, so you know things got nice and wild. These guys embrace the ‘skate everything’ mentality to the fullest and rip some gnarly pools and streets to shreds. This is only the first of a multi-part series too, so you can expect to see a lot more gnar like this in the near future.

If you’re living under a rock and aren’t too familiar, the Comet Skateboards crew is one of the raddest in the game, from bossman Jason all the way down to the homies packing boxes, they’re about having a ton of fun skateboarding and leaving the drama at the door – exactly what we love. They’re also based right here on the east coast, in the gnarly hills of Ithaca, NY.
