“Youth Control the Culture” — ONE LUX
San Jose, California – September 29, 2018. Originally I had plans to fly out west with my wife to visit Utah and when I realized the date we were flying home I planned a detour to Northern California. I missed out last year so I was pretty stoked to be there and it did not disappoint (they never do). We met up at Adelante Academy for the first spot. After four heats there was a juniors competition and the energy of the crowd for the little Arvinites was amazing (Shout out to Matt Mickey from Intuition Skateshop. Then we made our way to Morrill High School, which was a slightly curved rail with an angled approach, and lastly, the classic IMYTA spot where the final four took place many years ago. The weather was sunny and the vibe was very cool. After the comp—Walter, who I met when I first arrived, let me catch a ride out to BJ Bernhardt’s studio where the afterparty was. Beers, pizza, two skate video premieres (Bay Connection and Grombè) and good company—What more could you ask for. Shout out to Keezy, Mike, and everyone who helped organize and attended the event. The community out in NorCal is strong. Cheers to the good times!

This one’s dedicated to Rob G.
Year number three! 2018’s Boschi Pope Skate Off was successful; not only for the event itself, but with people coming from around the world, it made for an incredible weekend here in NYC. Anywhere you turned, whether it was a skate spot for a session, a local coffee shop for breakfast, a cheap diner, someone’s apartment, or our signature: the bodega–there were skaters flocking from all directions. Lots of respect to those who were involved to make it all happen. Cheers to the good times!
Thursday Night Skate
from butterTV on 10 Jul 2018
New York City — Every Thursday a big chunk of the inline community gather to cruise around the city. The meet up is at Union Square and from there the group treks to three designated spots, coordinated with the LOKE app, where seasoned skaters can do tricks while some new to the fun can watch and cheer. This time around; hosts, Keyre of Blader Brand and Adonis of New York Skate Series, threw a mini competition during the session and afterwards we all ended the night at a local bar. Good times as always. If you’re in town be sure to tag along for the next one. Cheers!
A-Town Stomp 2018: Number 9
from butterTV on 26 Jun 2018
Atlanta, Georgia – June 16th, 2018. First thing’s first: They skated a BOAT! I flew down to Atlanta to see what the Stomp was all about. The Starnes brothers have been putting together this event for the past nine years and what a good time it is. Southern hospitality is real. I got there a day early and watched the crew setup the skate boat at Arches Brewery. After a few beers I felt right at home. The day was eventful and ended at the Starnes house. The next day was brutally hot and humid. We met up at noon at Old Fourth Ward skatepark where Sandwiches were handed out. Water and Clif bars were stuffed in coolers and at the ready for anyone who needed them throughout the day. The turnout was great and so was the skating. Montre drove 7 hours from NC to the first location and went straight to business taking the win. After the comp–the new Cayenne Project film FORMOSA premiered at the brewery and afterwards we all went back to the Starnes house to celebrate. It was a short trip but definitely one to remember. Cheers to good times!
