Converse revealed a little behind the scenes of a class in session. Kenny starts with "the basics" and attempts to teach Dr. J the kickflip. I wonder how that turned out?
Tonight Supra is hosting the east coast edition of The Quiet Life Ping Pong Tournament at Adrift. The competition was fierce at the Vancouver stop and I'm sure the Toronto cats will bring some 'A' game also. Check out the FB EVENT PAGE to get all the details, sign up and of course start your shit talking!

The last time I was in Vancouver was over four years ago for an art show at Anti-Social. It was a great time and I remember that trip as one fun time. but I never got a real chance to see the city except for one day when Andrew Pommier drove me around so I could shoot photos. The following photos are from that first trip. I'm looking forward to spending a few days in that great city doing nothing but skating and shooting photos. Oh, and doing a slide show presentation on Friday night.

Are you ready for more? If you haven't watched part 1 from this summers DVS In Tents tour you can check it HERE. Today part 2 comes out with more action from Russ Milligan, Joey Williams, Jay Brown, Cameo Wilson and Mike McDermott as they make their way through BC's interior.
Josh Zucker of Woodward did this interview with filmmaker Greg Hunt (Mind Field/Sight Unseen/The DC Video). You should watch it.
We knew back in June but now it's official, the man named Horsey is on The High 5! With Supra and Kr3w also fully backing this lad we're bound to see more footage and photos of him soon! Also, check his footage in the One Way or Another documentary.
West Vancouver's answer to EMB, Ambleside skate park is a place that for its time, is like no other. Many skaters such as Paul Carter, Machnau, Tony Ferguson, Ted Degros and of coarse Russ Milligan have filmed lines at "AMB" over the past 10 years. Here is a recent session with Russ Milligan and Sascha Daley.
Just a few days left in the Dylan, Gravis contest. It seems people aren't too eager to talk style though. Check out this entry that came in:
