Skateboard Sense – Shredding 1970′s Style

1970′s skateboarding film – tons of campy skate footage from the early 70′s – funny and slightly goofy narration and host.

Van Doren Invitational 2013: Finals

Ok so this is new school skating but it is on banks and bowls so it kind of falls into the old school category.
Some out of this world skating on this one – amazing
Vans doesn’t mess around when it comes to throwing a contest and the 2013 Vans US Open will go down in history as not only one of the best, but the event where the new generation of bowl rippers really took control. From Greyson’s psycho float to Raven’s Rube-a-Dube to Hatchell’s trick wizardry, this was one of the wildest finals we’ve ever seen. And Raney’s transfer? Just wait!

RESULTS
1. Ben Hatchell
2. Greyson Fletcher
3. Raven Tershy
