Nick Green uploaded a Southeastern Wisconsin classic! Filmed by Pete Watkins it was one of the earlier Southport Rigging skate videos. I like this one more than Locals Only and Burning Daylight mostly due to the skaters having some say in how their part was edited and what music was used. It’s a very raw video that prominently features Washington Bowl skatepark when it had a fence around it. Ah memories.
Get out and skate with your friends.
New boards are getting pressed up soon.
Learned some new things about concrete the other day.
Skateboarding lost a real one.
I always looked at Jake Phelps as an example of a guy who loves skating and did his own thing regardless of what anyone thought of him (for good or bad). He was a dude I never met yet it felt like I knew him pretty well because whenever he had something to say he said it straight from the gut. A strangely blunt poetic philosopher who gave a lot to this weird thing we do.
Three local videos are dropping today. Don’t sleep.
I’m anxiously awaiting the video.
