Dylan Reider: Fashion Skateboarding

What I like about this guy (and not just his skating) is that you can tell he does what he wants. He dresses the way he wants; like a model. And he skates the way he wants; like a designer. It seems like his parts, especially this one, are more about how his tricks look than how tech they are or how gnarly the feature he is doing them on is. No one's skating is more well composed.

Pow Jibbin'

Butters abound in this powder fantasy. Switch landings, not to mention switch pillow-lines, are epic but not quite as good as the switch landing fails. Nick McNutt though, what a terrible fake name.

The Hotpossie crew delivers again. Death defying drinking, unsponsorable skiing and boobies. Illicit skate-bar boobies. I would feel sorry for this girl if she weren't so smashed and probably attention whoring that she hardly makes an effort to cover her self. Dragonfest-ta-death.

This kid, whoever and wherever he is, is really pushing creative park skiing. No line is off limits, no trick un-thinkable (nose tap/hook on the front of a bonk?). The music sucks but I have to imagine that is intentional. Reminds me of 'Traveling Circus' (but without the ugly van-living scenes).

Zombies Too Beautiful

This game trailer for 'Dead Island' is a work of art on its own. I don't care what the game is like, I could just watch this and be happy.

Pool Shred FTW

Arto Saari makes another appearance (twice and for all?) in what has to look like the most fun pool shred ever. Most of the time when you see a pool being skated it is in the hot sun in the middle of a shitty neighborhood, or an abandoned desert motel or somewhere else less than desirable. It is rare (although seemingly less so these days since more pros are getting PAID and therefore PAYING to build their own) that a well shaped pool is in a chill place, and Arto's looks the chillest. It looks good, skates good, and has plenty of big names to explore its subtle design. Even the dog looks like he wants to jump on a board. I definitely would.
