Another part from our friend and host of Skate Fillet, Grant Fiero. It is always hard to place the skill of your friends within the greater context of what is “good.” I get way more excited over homies than strangers so I was pleasantly surprised when the new part Grant had been talking about got featured on the DLX site and Thrasher as well. Big things my dude, keep em coming.
Our brother James has a birthday coming soon and along with it there might video part with it. When we were kids James was always keeping us progressing because he was the first to jump down any stair set and had confidence unlimited. He went off and did real life stuff while we still played skateboards in fantasy land, only to pick it up in a few years and be even BETTER. If you ever think getting back into skating is impossible, he is living proof how good it can be. Enjoy this early part while the finishing touches are put on the new one.
When we were fresh to San Marcos and looking for people to skate with we spent some time with the MHC crew out in the streets. At the time the brand run by Tinbum was still just a crew involving some friends from Australia and some friends in America. Super chill and not too serious, just like the Australians themselves. Me and Matt were happily surprised to have tricks in the friend section of this video. This single trick in a homie video felt like my pro debut. Thanks Tinbum!
Call it Mammoth week because everybody just spent time at the mountain. At the same time as we had our trip the other local crew we roll with MHC was just getting back from their adventure. I had heard rumors of the To Fakie Crew being up there the week before as well. Then as soon as I get home and decide to watch some skating, I see this edit! With our edit coming soon and a flood of instagram videos from nature, Ill post this to hold you over till ours gets done. If you ever get a chance to go to the eastern sierras, do it! California is so much more beautiful than LA would lead you to believe.
New part from Brian is great. He is like 9 feet tall but that is why he smiles so big all the time; so that we can see his big ass grin from down here on earth. His trick selection is great and he only does my favorite tricks (switch flips, back tails). Usually when I see Brian skating I hear soundcloud rap but it was nice to see him skate to something classic. This is a good one.
You’ve all seen the front blunt and you’ve probably seen the kickflip lipslide but this frenchman is the full package. He’s got incredible skill on rails and an even better kickflip. Seeing him motivate himself on a solo mission to do some of these tricks as if it is a switch he just has to turn on and the ripping begins. He never doubts himself and when he can’t do a trick he knows it often before the first try. I got very lucky to shoot some photos of him before he takes over the world!
