I caught this via Hypebeast a few weeks ago and have been wanting to revisit it when I got some time and, well, today was the day. These two cats, Zach and Adam (Backstreet Atlas), skated from Boston to NYC, and why? For the love. Doing something, no matter what it entailed, for the shear enjoyment of it. Really inspiring to see and I look forward to seeing the evolution of their project.
Check out the video above and for more info about the project click here.
Actually been a fan of 5Boro for a minute, the team, the graphics, and overall aesthetic struck a nerve with me. Steve Rodriguez, the owner of the brand, has even supported some of my projects in the past and I’ve always stayed in contact.
Beyond the support, the best part for me, if you do some research, is that Steve is a huge jazz head who schooled me on the fact that he’s used a variety of jazz tracks in their videos, so I pretty much flipped when we first dropped SHAOLIN JAZZ and Steve approached me about including some of the project’s tracks into their forthcoming video. That won’t be happening but I think its still a dope story.
This is HUGE for the DC skate scene. Shouts to Darren Harper for putting me on:
Maloof Skateboarding and Events DC, the official convention and sports authority dedicated to attracting premier events to the District, today announced a multi-year agreement to host the Maloof Money Cup, presented by Vans, on a world-class skate park to be built on the RFK Stadium Festival Grounds. This skate park, to be named Maloof Cup Park, will host the world’s best professional skateboarders at the inaugural Maloof Money Cup D.C. September 3-4. Tickets for Maloof Money Cup D.C. are on sale now at ticketmaster.com.
Designed by Pro Skater Geoff Rowley and Joe Ciaglia’s team at California Skateparks, the15,000-square-foot skate park is the first major skate park in Washington, D.C. and is inspired by Freedom Plaza and the architecture up and down Pennsylvania Avenue.
“It was important for us to take design elements from real D.C. skate spots and try to replicate them and hopefully complement them as much as possible,” said Rowley. “The local skaters will recognize some of these influences like the Freedom Plaza Ledges and the Golden Rail made famous by legendary locals like Pepe Martinez, Chris Hall and many more original D.C.rippers,” said Rowley.

Picked this up from hypebeast. Its very basic but SO FRESHLY done. The video is by a cat by the name of Tilles Singer and features stop-motion animation with skateboard magazine cut-outs in a series of homemade environments.
