Sweepin the Streets


I have been privileged enough to receive the first proto of the Holesom 40/50 SS, and I must say, so much stoke. So much stoke in the company and its owner, I don’t think ive ever seen more stoke than in David, except maybe in his horse. Anyways, I felt inspired to write a top notch review for you all because this board is so awesome and needs to be shared, so lets get down to the dirty talk.

Materials: As you have read the street sweeper is composed of bamboo and hemp and held together by a high quality epoxy resin compound, which not only makes it nice and shiny but also holds it together quite nicely.

Specs: 40” long, 9.5” wide. That is if you don’t subtract the parts missing in the middle.

My Setup: Randals, 90a Venoms, and Otang In Heats.

Preferred setup: Holeys, Cult Gama Rays

Typical session discipline: Cruising, carving, sliding, dancing, and freestyling.

Any Questions?

What are the holes for? Ummmmm… pass.

Haha no, the holes make it lighter, look cooler and enhance its ability to hold flowers for you ladies, or really confident blokes.

Is it a Dervish killer? Well, like the I Pod i don't think anything can completely kill the dervish, except curbs, curbs are bad.


Which do you prefer? If I’m going for a light, fun trip down town to ride the parking garages or dance it up with my homies, I would go with my 40/50 every time. Its just more fun, its light, agile, and pumptastic. Not to mention the dampening qualities of the beautiful hemp, nature’s strongest fiber, which make it the smoothest ride on the block. And I've only been on the prototype, just think about the final product!

Coming soon

Not in this upcoming video but somewhere down the line.

Videos!



Mmmm

YES!

IM BACK

Well if you guys are still around, I'm back! Sorry about not doing anything the last couple of weeks but my computer quit on me and we couldn't fix it, so after weeks of no longboarding videos, news, music and not being able to do any projects at home we finally caved and hired a tech guy... and he took it to the shop and had it fixed in a little more than a day, which probably means he had it fixed in 15 minutes. Being back its surprising just how much can happen in a month, when i started the blog in the winter there was literally nothing to write about, now there's almost too much, with new videos, wheels, boards, recalls, its crazy. anyways, I'm glad to be back, hopefully i wont be gone this long ever again, and ill be hard at work trying to keep up with all the fresh news and making awesome videos.

Vicious

I wonder if its as good as Loaded's new spray grip, or just slightly better than regular. Probably make good nose grip. Check it out www.viciousgrip.com

indestructible


Well it turns out they are indestructible, and slightly crazy, but we already knew that.

Dancer bliss


Not great dancing, still really good though for how young they look, but what got me stoked was the filming, its amazing!

XVD

Wow, XVD steppin it up, I'm impressed. This board looks sick, I mean personally I have no idea how it rides but I've heard good things about them, and theyre fairly cheap which is always good.

Check them out: www.xvdlongboards.com They've got a dancer too, and its nice, i really recommend you check them out.

Ps. I dont really think that last video is cool, I just wanted to see if anybody was paying attention, obviously not.

Ah, SICK

Aaaaapex Threefour (34)

A short little board that i'll be able to throw some otang freerides on and shred, that's exciting. Weighing in at a tiny five pounds complete its one of the lightest boards on the market, and with wheel and bearing upgrades (Cambrias and Cell Swiss) the final price is 244 bucks which is about what you're gonna pay for a Loaded pintail with a challenge series discount. This board sounds like a win to me, and I'm definitely gonna pick one up for myself this summer, but if you cant wait that long feel free to pre order one of these babies, itll be seven days before its released but if you want to make sure you get one right away go ahead, heres the link: Apex34

I admit not the best skating, actually barely any skating, but i like it.

Friday, March 6, 2009

Dang.

Thing looks, well... epic. The only problem is I'll probably never be able to use it.
Another reason why blogspot sucks, i cant make a picture a link.
Epic Video
Ps. crack kills

Killin it


In my mind fixed gear is the equivalent of longboarding on a bike, and if that's true, Keo sort of like Adam Colton, just not as crazy...

34


according to youtube you can pre order the apex 34 starting march 9th. Ill post the sneak peek video up here again due to a lack of any other info on the board right now.

TripDip


Just imagine how this would ride.

Freestyle

Two freestyle videos for you today, ones sick, the others crazy and insane and why the heck would anyone want to do that? I'll let you decide which is which.


Jordan's video reminds me of Saturday, in fact its almost an exact replica of my Saturday... minus the other people, but im glad i got at least some of it out of my system on that six hour session because its a stormin' out there today.

Saving

Well, i was saving this for the new blog, yes you heard me, NEW BLOG, but that probably wont be going down for another month due to the amazing weather (omit today and tomorrow) and the fact that i don't know how to write in simple php. But don't fret, i have a friend who knows how to and he should be hooking me up with a site. Anyways here is the write up of flexdex' new line of wooden boards by Stephan Reinhardt himself!:

Flexdex Skateboards is proud to release 4 of the most anticipated boards of 2009.

The 2009 lineup of skateboards is now available to check out and order on their web site.

The series of decks contains 4 NEW MODELS made from WOOD and ORGANIC FIBER WEAVES made to FLEX.

Lust for Life 33" - 5ply maple – with clear organic fiber weave


"The Lust" was spawned from a love of campus/city cruising and old school freestyle. After experimenting with multiple flexes, shapes, and sizes, the creative minds at Flexdex concocted the perfect campus cruiser. The look of the deck is very natural and was inspired by tundra/taiga biomes. "The Lust" is definetly fresh till death. You want it (jedi hand gesture).

2009 1999

Mantis 36" - 5ply maple – with clear organic fiber weave


The Mantis is a very mysterious and complicated board with a deep twisted past. The board is a wooden reincarnation of the Flexdex Stinger. The Stinger was carved from the famed Flexdex formula and was a top seller for years. The stinger was living the good life as a longboard celebrity when the unthinkable happened. After a love affair between The Stinger and Maple tree The Stinger disappeared and never returned. Years went by then one day The Mantis appeared at the doorstep of Flexdex. Team Flexdex took The Mantis in with open arms. You Want One!


Flexdex Stinger -Father of The Mantis-(1999-2003)

.


Rubber Soul 40" - 6ply maple – with clear organic fiber weave


The Rubber Soul is the hottest under the sun and the graffic is melting under your feet dude! This may be one of the most versatile and comfortable 40 inch boards on the market. This is one of those boards that takes over your quiver. You will not want to get your rubber souls off of it.This deck was inspired by a decade of experimentation and you can bet that the guys at Flexdex weren't afraid to try new and exciting organic options...when it came to this deck. You Want one!

Fat Daddy 60" - 11ply birch -

The Fat Daddy 60" x 10" wide longboard marks the return of one of the 10 best longboard skateboards ever.

Flexdex used to make this as the "Pro60" back in 1999-2003. You asked for it. It's back! Man, those guys at Flexdex are so cool.

3 new and unique wood longboards – and 1 mega-longboard. As always,You Want One!

And –They updated the look, wheels and graphics on ALL the Flexdex Line.

But wait – that's not all…. rumor has it that they are adding lots of wheels and trucks that fit ALL longboards

Wait! Theres More-Team Flexdex is constantly coming out with more media, photos, events, video, and more keep checking out Flexdex.com

for the latest longboarding info and gear.

Fishballs

I cant decide weather to get these on Friday or wait the two to 24 months for the Otang freerides. Its a tricky decision, maybe Ill get these and then pick up a pair of Otangs with my next board, i do think both wheels will be insane.

Check them out, and read the description on the fish: Fishballs

Note: the reason loaded take a long time to get a product out is because they want to make it different and better than anything else on the market, so that might play into my decision too.

Ps: The truth is there are just too many wheels coming out, Zach at venom is supposedly working on a pair too, I'm stoked.

Filmm



Ah, im coming out of hibernation with this new camera. I spent all day warming up and taking pictures, and should hopefully be out filming tomorrow!

Also I set up a flickr account, and will be updating it every so often with both longboarding pictures as well as just plain old pictures, ill make a separate folder for longboarding, as not to bore you with my personal life.

checks it out: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ohflipp/

Year long anticipation

Ps. look at the boards in the background of the intro, i can see the fathom, and maybe a few more unreleased boards! that makes me happy

This made my day
