The Fernwood Four Muskateers

No Comments »

   With the Summer weather coming in strong, Fernwood has been bumping off lately. With the recent addition of the first official pour at Fernwood, resulting in the corner pipe, the vibes are alive and well down on the court. With the sun shining last week, I popped down to kick it with friends and have a nice relaxing beverage in the sun. I also managed to film some clips and put together this edit. I haven’t been filming very much skateboarding lately and felt it refreshing to get tucked down on one knee and film some fisheye for a change. Get outside today!

OneHour With Dylan Timmins at OneSix

No Comments »

   On a rainy day back in November of 2014, a few days after purchasing my Panasonic GH4, I hit up OneSix with Dylan Timmins and Shaun Ingham to roll around and let the camera roll to test 'er out.
I don't know if Shaun and I even skated, or just watched Dyltims casually cruise back and forth with little to no effort, perplexed at how he isn't falling.
   After I put the edit together, it was mentioned it could be "too epic", and Dylan wasn't very stoked on his skating. So, I never put it out and my "GH4 Test Video" recessed into the depths of my hard drive until I was doing some Spring Cleaning recently. It's been long enough that I don't care if it's "too epic" anymore, and Dylan's skating has improved so it's understandable this isn't his best stuff ;)
 This is One Hour with Dyltims at OneSix; enjoy.

A Picnic in Granville Island

No Comments »

A few weekends ago Leon, Cheyenne and myself were skating through Granville Island when this wooden bench caught Leon's eye and this thing is far from a perfect cali picnic table. What caught my eye was the epic sunlight shining right onto it, within a few minutes we managed to film a 5050 then shoot this photo before the golden hour lighting faded away, shout out to the sun/skate gods for this one!

Cloverdale

No Comments »

Dry days around here have been rare commodity lately so when the sun peaked out last saturday Jason, Nico, Leon and myself took the longer then expected voyage out to one of the best things to happen in Surrey, the newish Cloverdale skatepark. Sorry about the annoying specs of dust on my sensor which i didn't notice until I got home, hopefully some stylish Jason Wilson clips can make up for it!

   Fabian Passley just came in hot with a full part from 2015 that got dropped today. After making the move to the Island from Toronto in 2015, he's been taking it upon himself to rip spots up with a flowy flow and his own bag of trickery goodness. Enjoy!

Shay Sandiford for LRG Canada

No Comments »

There's been tons of great skateboarding coming out of Vancouver Island lately. Over the last couple years Shay Sandiford has undeniably been making a name for himself, not just around the island but across Canada and the US. With an exceptionally motivated work ethic and constant need for progression, Shay's always on something new and impressive. This part is just a little window into his skating and I can't wait to see where it can go in the future; did I mention he can't even buy a beer yet?

Sparta Time

No Comments »

    Carter Spinks has had a new project in the works since Soota Time dropped, though he isn't just the man behind the camera. With Matt Gravel and Erik Sorensen helping out with some filming, Sparta has been getting some time in front of the camera, popping higher than you ever will. For example, this spot is one for those with quick feet and high snaps. With a quick pop in and pop over, Carter gets a good one at a spot that had been brought up (and joked about) previously. Be on the lookout for some new Victoria visuals coming soon to a screen near you.

Danger Zone Part 2

No Comments »


While some prefer to partake in the dangerous act of grinding 15 rails Leon decided to try out grinding this ollie over a rail to 5050 with a 15 foot drop on the other side instead. In my opinion both are great examples of swimming in the danger zone. Swim too deep into the danger zone with this one and it will surely result in serious injury or worse, I'm glad Leon survived this 5050 and was able to swim on through the finish line with style. Getting a clip and a photo sounds like a sweet gold medal finish to me.
