TJ's Recruit drops tomorrow. Yoon and Chase got him in to do a little First Try Friday to get you ready.
MILES SILVAS FOR SMALL WHEELS
A Minute at Mathis
Miles Silvas is one of the most stylish up and comers in the game right now. He's got everything from big handrails to flawless flatground. Here's a solid minute of park footage for Small Wheels.
So much good skating gets posted everyday on Insta. Some clips are so insanely good that a few years ago, they could've been legitimate video part enders. But the nature of Instagram is to be of the moment—to be instant. As a result, these clips get forever lost in the black hole of Insta's infinite scroll. "Liked" once and forgotten. Double Tapped is our way of slowing down the ever-growing feed to reflect. These are the clips that stood the test of time over the past 7 days and deserve a rewatch. Tag @berrics and hashtag #BerricsDoubleTapped on your Instavids for a chance to get in next week's Double Tapped.
Get a quick fix of Oscar Meza shredding Sheldon Park in LA. Damn, he's good!
Got 99 problems but a jump ramp ain't one. Build it and they will come.
Sometimes the industry of skateboarding can take itself a little bit too serious and I understand why. There's a lot of passion rolling around on those four wheels and for as much as the people like to talk about how skateboarding isn't about the money, when you're a business, sometimes it has to be about the money. No single company can operate at a deficit, unless you're the US government. Mixed in with all that passion there has to be a little bit of a businessman inside us because no one in the industry grew up wanting to be an insurance salesman because that's no fun and skateboarding is. So, to celebrate that fact, and to prove you can have it just about anywhere when you have a skateboard, we created Off The Grid. For a pro skateboarder whose life can be stressed out due to filming for videos, shooting photos and skating in contests, sometimes he has to go off the grid just to have a little fun. Take it from Jose Rojo and Caswell Berry as they cruise through San Jose. Enjoy. -- sb
Before TJ Rogers could get Recruited, he had to go through the screening process. What that process actually is varies with each individual. TJ came out of Canada and has been slaughtering American street spots with a vengeance these past couple years. C'mon, switch front 360 Hollywood 16? Holy crap... We knew he would go hard for his Recruit... But we had no idea he would go THIS hard. You're gonna freak when you see his Recruit on Saturday.
