THE NORTHERN EMBASSY

17 Feb Patrick Rhodenizer Summer 17

I met Pat last year and was immediately impressed by how much natural talent and style he had. Kid has crazy amounts of energy and is always a pleasure to cruise with. He lives quite a bit out in the sticks of Nova Scotia so makes due with what he can street wise, which in my opinion is treat to see. He just chopped some footage together from the Summer and there’s some zesty goofy footed goodness in here. Excited to see what the coming year holds for Patty boy (Get your ass to Halifax more often fool!).

16 Feb No Drents in Londo

The dude Ian Fleming just sent through this great little nugget from a trip to London with Andrew Phillips, Alexis Leger, Matt Comeau, Paul Slaunwhite, Colin Kenny, Harrison Forward and Damien Maclean. Although it looks like they had a great time and rode a bunch of amazing spots, they probably didn’t enjoy it one bit because there were no hydrants around :/ smh.

29 Jan BC Interior Trip


Slade sent this one through, featuring himself, Kostya Chimkovitch, Jon Fredlund and John Thompson. I’m assuming that Kostya put the video together, since he’s been rolling around with a camera lately. It’s a pretty nice little tour of the parks around the Okanagan these days, with some killer riding. The parks get AMAZING near the end of the trip, so you’ll want to hang on for that.

Bonus trivia – the rail that Kostya crashes on in the first clip (and later pulls) was first done by pro skater Ryan Smith as the ender in his Nobodys part, in 1997. That video also featured this classic part from Simon Barry (that you should watch).
