The best thing to come out of Denver since Dog the Bounty Hunter, Trey Parker, and Chipotle, David Reyes gets his bang on. Mile high all day. Full-length David Reyes street part dropping this Monday. YES!
Tony Hawk and Andrew Reynolds surprised Riley for his 21st birthday tonight with 2 pro model Baker boards. There's no way this wasn't gonna happen; it's in his freakin' blood! Not to mention, he's been on a straight killing spree lately. Congrats!!!
SB CHRONICLES UNPLUGGED
Luan Oliveira Presents Stefan Janoski's Part
In preparation for the Nike SB Chronicles Vol. 2 release, Luan Oliveira (whose part is absolutely insane, by the way!) introduces a special “unplugged” version of Stefan Janoski’s part from SB Chronicles Vol. 1.
The lifespan of a generation is about the only circle we can't dodge or modify. Just like you and I, generations are subject to death. This death, this aging and dying, allows a culture to evolve. Younger generations replace older ones in each phase of life, creating something new, altering the course of its culture, mood and behavior. Each phase of life has its own unique location in the history of skateboarding. What it looked like in the 90s is not what it looks like now, and every week the generation on its way out is being reminded of that. How things once were, they no longer are. And although the new draws upon the old for inspiration so as to create something they feel is better and more reflective of themselves and their experiences, they do not dwell in or care about the same things the old do at this phase in their life. Scathing criticism about the changing of generations by the one being replaced only comes off as being, well, old. There is a new layering of generational personas up and down the skateboarding age ladder. It can be hated. It can be resisted. It can be ignored by those of you who choose to ignore it, but it cannot be stopped, that is for certain. This is what WATCH THIS is all about. The proliferation of change and acceptance that something new is more than just on the horizon. - sb
NIKE SB PRESENTS DANIEL LEBRON
37 Years Young
Today's skate scene in Spain would be much, MUCH different without the influence of the pioneer Daniel LeBron. At 37, he has put out an unbelievable part (filmed over the past 2 years at some of the sickest spots all over the world)... with appearances from some special guests.
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.
