The heads over at Alltimers thought the people deserve a new video and so they blessed us with this 43-minute video. A lot of amazing skating by everyone but big S/O to Zered Bassett for still killing it. How do you keep that skill level?

“Much Needed After A Long” by Alex Greenberg
The moment when the “Clockwork Orange” theme music started playing and the titles popped up we already got the feeling that this is going to be a very well-made video. We weren’t wrong. After filming and editing the Noah NYC video we didn’t see much from Mr. Alex Greenberg but of course, he didn’t put his camera aside. On the contrary. After watching his new 26 minutes long work “Much Needed After A Long” we saw what he and his friends had been up to and all we can say is that it was worth the wait.
Great work Alex! Nice to see a lot of familiar faces together with amazing skaters we have never seen before. Another instant New York City classic!

Jake Kuzyk is probably in the mountains right now doing some ridiculously hard snowboard tricks. But when global warming cuts winter short his is a great skater and an even better filmer.
His work for Antisocial in Vancouver has been some of the best in recent years.
So with all your favorites in this, you simply need to press play and enjoy.

CINQUIEME TERRASSE – Tony G
“The youth is the future”, a somewhat easy self-explanatory statement because we all grow old, die and then the youth will remain.
CINQUIEME TERRASSE in our opinion is the future! Young people working hard, connecting with other people from all over the world while staying true to themselves.
Others have told us good things about the 5th and in our own contact with them, we only have good things to say as well. But don’t trust us this what they had to say about themselves:
Introducing Cinquieme Terrasse, the Parisian crew (originally from Annecy) about their newest video.
“Since the last video “NATIDI” Elliot Bonnabel kept on following the crew around Paris, close suburbs and other shorts trips to Amsterdam, Marseille, and Malaga. This new video is starring the usual suspects Nicolas Gisonno, Lilian Fev, Etienne Chatelain, Morgan Katomba, Lilian Ceccon, Thomas Gouillon, Theo Lapalud, and obviously some friends who often come overseas to chill in town, such as Ben Blundell.“
We feel that you should join in by watching their new video, get inspired and support their future endeavors from now on!

VANS SHOP RIOT FINALS 2018 – SNAPSHOT RECAP PART 2
Last weekend the Vans Shop Riot Finals took place in Milano in Italy. We sent two of our favorite correspondents Peter Buikema and Sara Parson-Texas to the event with some analogue camera equipment. Both of them came back with their own version of the events as they unfolded. Part 2, this part is Peter’s vision of their 46 hours in Milan.
VANS SHOP RIOT FINALS 2018 – SNAPSHOT RECAP PART 1
Last weekend the Vans Shop Riot Finals took place in Milano in Italy. We sent two of our favorite correspondents Peter Buikema and Sara Parson-Texas to the event with some analogue camera equipment. Both of them came back with their own version of the events as they unfolded. Part 1, this part is Sara’s vision and words of their 46 hours in Milan.
46 hours, that is the exact time we spent in Milan. Pretty much in and out!
First stop: the hotel, to drop our stuff and off we were to Milano Centrale where everybody met up to skate… have a beer… and… witness a random fight between some local drunks (not the skaters).
An honourable mention goes out to Victor “doobie” Pellegrin for killing it, even though he had multiple: “I can’t skate today” and “the spot actually sucks” type of comments!
Later on the same day, we went down to the Bastard Shop for the first event, a session in a crazy suspended bowl… an exhibition… Italian buffet and… of course drinks. A few glasses of wine and a dislocated elbow later we all danced to Dj Juan Love a.k.a. John Cardiel’s set until the early hours.
The following day was spent at the Pinball Skatepark where both the finals and the best trick took place. The weather was horrible and we were all half hangover but in a good mood none the less.
All the teams really went for it, and during Burnside’s run, I was “live” with Dallas Rockvam, sending him updates about Rob and his teammates! In the end, they actually did it, the Burnside boys won the finals and I believe Rob also won the best trick… Hey Rob! What did you have for breakfast that day mate?!
After all the rain… party… gin tonic… dance moves… more gin tonic… popping out of wardrobes… rain again… sleep (sort off) we got on the train… plane… and we touched the ground, back in Berlin 46 hours later!
Sara would like to give some extra thanks to:
Alex Forbes, Danny Wainwright, Sam Partaix, Doobie Pellegrin, Jacopo Carozzi, Sebastian Vijverberg, Val Bauer, Joseph Biais, and all the others for being good partners in crime.
Rough Idea — Alltimers in Los Angeles B-Sides
You have seen the full video, you have read the interviews now it is time for the stuff that did not make it into the full length. Enjoy (the b-sides are always the best anyway)!

Antosh Cimoszko – Breather (Hiatus)
Antosh is a multi-talented guy that is probably getting requests from multiple brands to produce content for them.
When you do a lot you sometimes need a breather and what do filmers do for fun? They hang out with their friends and film and that is probably what happened here.
CLUBGEAR EPISODE 1: OBSERVING THE EARTH
“Awesome video. Except for the skateboarders, music, crashes, bad actors, music, oops said that one already. otherwise, Awesome
just kidding. Mad Love for everyone. Dad !!”
-Paul McNeil about Cory McNeil’s new video.
“CLUBGEAR EPISODE 1: OBSERVING THE EARTH” features Jed Anderson, Ben Blundell, Bobby Dekeyzer and many more.
Alltimers’ “Yo, Best Idea” Video
Alltimers went to Barcelona complained about the rain (at least it didn’t snow) but still came back with 8 minutes of high-class footage.
Alltimers – “My Alltimers”
When Alltimers first came out it felt like something quintessentially New York a.k.a. “a NYC thing.” but things have changed. Today the squad is packed with a bunch of Canucks which isn’t a bad thing by the way. It is kind off like Hip Hop it came from New York but the top artist at the moment is Canadien. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that Hip Hop music and culture will always be from the Bronx! Drake is just doing it best right now.
Featuring Dustin Henry, Conor Prunty, Charles Rivard, Will Marshall, Ben Blundell, Adrian Vega, Adam Zhu, Gabe Hazell and Etienne Gagne
The Antisocial Video
If you have been skating for a couple of years now you may remember that Antisocial is a Vancouver skate shop that was founded by one Rick McCrank. On the other side if you have been skating for a shorter amount of time you may now some of the people in this project from Jake Kuzyk’s video Civil Affair. To us, the collaboration between both is an exciting and logical step that makes both the shop and people like Dustin Henry, Ben Blundell, Keegan Sauder and Mike McDermott shine.
