Nora is one of the best in the game and skating to Nicki Minaj does not hurt her either but on the contrary makes a lot of sense.
From skating to painting pants with Mark the Gonz this all was a joy to watch. The /// & Torsten Frank did a good job on this one.
Kaio, Heitor, Nora, Nestor & Jack.
We love everything about this. A true masterpiece produced on over two-decade-old equipment. MUST WATCH!
Filmed & Edited by Quentin Guthrie and feat.: Dom Henry, Arthur Derrien Josh Pall, Will Harmon, Nora Vasconcellos just to name a few.
Why wait for the Summer when you have time in Winter anyway? The video description says it all:
“Two surfers. One skateboarder. One 1994 stretch limo. 120 cans of PBR. One long road down the east coast of the US. 9 days of fucken good times.”
adidas Skateboarding is closing their year of strong with this Paris video, To be honest, they have just the right balance when it comes to Euro – US team mates for a feat like this. Enjoy this little gem!
Heitor looks amazing in this but where is Dennis Busenitz, haven’t seem him in a minute.
It seems like everyone is going to Hawaii lately. The perfect holiday island has turned into a heavily favoured skate destination. A coincidence, maybe, it seems like the /// team did not take any chill time and went all in.
Lil Dre, Donta Hill, Dennis Busenitz, Daewon Song, Magnus Bordewick, Nora Vasconcellos, Mark Gonzales and Alec Majerus rip through the island of their dreams.
Remember those Vogue skateboard magazine t-shirts, the one with the Thrasher font? Well, there might be more truth to that shirt than we thought because they just released a really good article about the rise of women in skateboarding. Here is a part of the article
“In 2005, the Action Sports Alliance staged a women’s boycott of the X Games until pay and media coverage were improved. A year later, they landed a meeting with John Skipper, then president of ESPN, who agreed he would bring the women’s prize winnings up every year until it was equal to the men’s earnings. “He was true to his word,” says Knoop. In 2008, the women and men’s champions both took home $40,000. “And it’s been equal ever since.””

Giovanni Reda killing is it, who thought that the same guy who never found out who threw the mystery water would be the guy that is pushing forward important parts of the culture. With moving images we might add, quite an interesting path that Mr. Reda is on.
Obviously, this should be about Nora but since the doc is so well made we felt like it explains itself.

Adidas went all out for this one, almost the whole team came to the city of angels to skate and hang out. But even though all the heavy hitters were there it was the new addition to the team Magnus Bordewick who outshined everybody with his pop and non-conventional style. Norway keeps on giving us new and interesting skaters.
