The beautiful mountain town of Revelstoke is in the midst of fundraising to re-vamp their skatepark to the next level. They have a rad idea of incorporating features to attach banshie cords so the park can be rideable year round. And if you have ever ridden their park you know they are in need of a new playground. This piece is dedicated to bridging community and culture, from Calgary to Revelstoke. The funds raised from this board will go towards helping develop their new skatepark.
Reminiscing of summer and cultivating that nomadic flow and perpetuating the love of the moment. Nowhere but now, 4 brothers embark west with a van equipped with gear to adventure any sort of terrain that comes across their path and open hearts ready to discover what ever the wind’s wisdom blows.
As the fall unfolds we remember the summery days and the festival that brought together skateboarding, breakdancing, live music, art and a cultural overlap of a justice serving community… oh and also, from the frozen lake of Vostok in Antarctica the mythical stegawhale came to join us on this festive day. Along with his love of rock and roll he was gracious enough to let the local skaters rip his stega-spikes and his stega-whale-tale.
Big ups to our prehistoric brotherin’ and everyone who made this day what it was.
One of my favourite summer past times has always been grabbing an ice cream & whipping around the local bowl (can’t beat it). Yesterday I found myself in Canmore doing just that. For some reason I felt the need to impress a gang of 10 year old’s & there mums, with my sweet skills! Unfortunately it didn’t go so well!
Yes, we did “beat the heat”.. barely. If you don’t know what Beat the Heat is, it’s an annual Canada day skate competition in Medicine hat.
All in all it was a beautiful day. We’ve been going out to BTH for the past two years, it’s always inspirational to see how much work is put into it from the Med Hat Skate Association. All the volunteers really go out of their way to see all the kids, parents, skaters, vendors and sponsors have the best Canada day possible.
Lots of appreciation for these guys on the mic, they make it fun and friendly for all our ears.
We always try and do something new and fun when we get L&S out and about. For Beat the Heat it was board painting. Slicking the sticks up with some fresh paint! nice work kai, click his name to peep some more of his work.
Not quite L&S artists yet, at least they had fun.. thanks for the new paint job?
BIG UPS to Steven Graham for placing 4th in the competition. L&S family rider/collaborative, Shredz team rider, TBG vibe master. Cheeaa
We were really beating the heat.. it was a BEAUTIFUL day out.. mhhmm! MOLiFE/NCZ films setting up their new dolly. These guys are WIZARDS behind the lens. have you seen their latest video for Light & Soul? Keep posted for their edit on the day. Med Hat Skate Association.. thanks again.
Hello friends! Check out Steve’s skateboard wizardry from our video Jock Mentality! Steve is a gifted skateboarder that has powerful style, an enormous variety of tricks, and isn’t afraid to throw himself at whatever obstacle is in front of him. A LOT of blood and sweat went into filming these tricks but we also had a lot of good times over the years. I’ve watched Steve grow from a talented little gromlin into one of the most naturally talented and consistent skateboarders I know. You can go to Cochrane Skatepark most days and witness the pure natural destruction yourself. Every obstacle crushed into tiny little pieces of dust by the magnitude and consistency of his tricks.
Anyways I hope you enjoy these tricks as much as I, and the other filmers, enjoyed filming them. Watch for some more tricks from Steve soon and if you see him tell him I say hi!
A blessing to the small alberta town called Cochrane. Shredz which is a rider and locally owned and operated shop has been giving opportunity to local riders, students and local brands like Light & Soul. Supporting the skate scene in their small town and loving doing it!
On may.. something Shredz teamed up with the Boys & girls club as well as the Inside to put together a competition called Shredz Fest. It was a day of dodging rain, celebrating skating, free bbq, awesome music from local talent such as ROYGBIV and yes.. FUN. Always right?
Anyway! peep some pic’s.. it was a wicked day. THANK YOU SHREDZ!!
<3 love shreds
Mr. Switzer. An inspiration at the park. For everyone who knows this man. We love him. Shredz rider
Dodging the rain and wild weather. Thank you Saucey for saving us from the rain!
Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul is a beautifully shot film that
follows the lives of a group of young skateboarders in Afghanistan. Operating against the backdrop of war and bleak prospects, the Skateistan charity project is the world’s first co-educational skateboarding school, where a team of international volunteers work with girls and boys between the ages of 5 and 17, an age group largely untouched by other aid programmes. Giving children the confidence the need, opportunity to communicate with other kids and a place for fun.
