Popped a Hydrant I'm Sweatin

No Comments »

   Isaac Walker and I have been on a mission as of late, stacking clips trying to hustle a full part during the winter months. He casually did this Switch Ollie first try warming up, and then filmed it in a 4 trick line. Filming with Isaac is quite enjoyable, a deep bag of tricks and super consistent skating!

"The Sleepskate" Corey Cawdell for onethirtythree

No Comments »

I was stoked to have Corey Cawdell sleep on my couch for 3 days last week before he flew off to Alberta for work, with filming a little onethirtythree ad in mind and drinking some beers I knew it would be a good time. Although it rained pretty much the whole time Corey figured it could be one of the last times he'll get to skate this winter so we decided fuck it! Lucky for me a little bit of rain, wet shoes, rusty bearings and slippery griptape didn't seem to bother Corey, maybe he should give up that dirty Alberta oil money and take up acting?

Jake Hamilton is the man! when he's not working on WDH stuff or filming everyone else he can definitely get down on the other side of the lens! Check out this new part whodahell put out earlier this week.

 

Back In the Dane

No Comments »

   Prior to Dane Pryds receiving ACL surgery earlier this year, we went on a bit of a shooting tear, trying to get whatever his knee would allow before he went under the knife. This year has been a hectic one and this blog somewhat fell onto the backburner unfortunately, but I'll be working on being more proactive with posts in the coming time. Starting off with the following two photos of Dane.

   This bump to bar resides out in Sidney somewhere, of which not very many people have skated I imagine. There is plenty of run up but the bump to bar is still a decent size so a few pushes are definitely needed.

   This boardslide is at the same spot as Adam Colborne's 50-50 below, but coming across Balmoral instead of Quadra. Due to limited light stands or whatever the reason was, I hung a flash from the telephone pool by a shoe lace to get a rim light on Dane. Definitely the most precarious way I've positioned a flash before.

Sunday Church

   These black flatbars outside a church on Quadra St. don't get skated very often, but Adam Colborne has had his eye on it for a while so we left the park to get a trick before sunset. Adam wanted to try a different trick, but after warming up with some 50-50's I suggested he do it through the knob. His kingpins were catching, but after a few pushes and determination Adam managed to grind both trucks over the knob with ease.

   Pierce Mckay and I were on a bit of a tear for a couple days stacking photos, so I'll relieve one from the pile and post it here. The 2 stair ledge at Odeon has seen a lot of action over the years, although there still remains a handful of tricks that could be done. Waiting for the light to go green, Pierce gave a few good pushes across the street and handled a Bluntslide with ease to wrap up the evening.

Gap Flats

No Comments »

   I came over to Vancouver for a couple days to go over footage with Leo Graceffo and see where we sit for an upcoming project. Before sorting through clips, we checked out this covered flat gap as the roads were wet. For not going with any expectations, the spot turned out to be a productive one.

Depart the Arts, Make Way For Skating

No Comments »

   After a few days of stormy weather, the sun has been shining which means getting in some street skating while we can! Seeing as it's reading break at UVic, we checked out the Art Department to skate the infamous bench. After shooting a sequence of a different trick Matt Gravel did, we shot this Switch Crook and then filmed it in a line after. Although the days are getting closer to frosty, it gives us that much more of a reason to hustle when possible.

   Seeing as it's been way too long since I've put something out, I decided to film some of the action going down at the Dub here and there for a couple weeks. After a few days gathering footage for this edit, I present to you Dylan Timmins, myself, Jayden Prescott, Riley Williamson, Trevor Mcdermid, Adam Colborne, Corey Cawdell, Ethan Craig, Drew Copleston and Isaac Walker raking up the leaves at Vic West.
Happy Halloween!

Meet Madonna

   I met Sam Lind at Vic West yesterday while he's in Victoria for the week and shot this stylish Madonna while he was skating the bowl. I've never seen anyone blast Fs Airs out of the extension so high, which you'll be seeing proof of at a later date.

Benches Are For Skating

   While Leo Graceffo and I were filming at these benches for his 133 Ad a few weeks ago, we shot this Bs Smith Grind that he had filmed in a line previously. Got that nose dipped!

YGT Presents: VICtorious (Leon Breton)

   Leon Breton asked me if he got enough Spain footage he could have a part in VICtorious. Of course I said yes, and of course Leon delivered. Throw in a few Victoria bangers and you have one hell of a part. I mean look at the kickflip!?

Leo Graceffo- Bs Lipslide [o] Connor


   I went to Vancouver a couple weekends ago for work, and managed to get in some good skating time in the time I had there. After filming a wedding for two days, it was refreshing to get out into the streets and do some shooting where I enjoy most.
   Leo Graceffo has been supported by OneThirtyThree in Courtenay for quite some time now, so when it came to his turn for an ad, we got to it and filmed everything in a couple hours. Leo riffled off a handful of tricks in no time, and I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. We hope you enjoy it as well!
