One of Canada’s best kept secrets has been blowing up more and more, and hot on the heels of Jordan Hango’s section in Holy Fit, he was brought on to the Fit UK trip to Portugal. While there, Dig’s Fred Murray threw some question his way about life, working, riding, and even gets the honour of being called a NEW Canadian Beast. Check out some humble words from Hango here.

TBT – Drew Bezanson 2008 Street footage

11 Dec TBT – Drew Bezanson 2008 Street footage

 

This is tight, and needs some more shine time. Drew B killing spots all over Nova Scotia back in 2008ish, filmed by Mark Butler. If you ever wanted to see Drew riding street in front of a prime VX filmer you’re in luck. So many sick clips in here including the best jersey barrier stall combos you’ll ever see in your whole entire life at 1:20, and an awesome session on Halifax’s only claim to fame, “The Wave”. I looked up to Marks filming so much growing up, pure classic style, his vimeo page┬áis definitely worth a browse as well.

09 Dec King of Taz Contest/Jam series

flyerr2
The awesome dudes at 514 in Montreal are hosting an amazing contest series called The King of Taz. Inspired by the awesome King of Quebec series from many moons ago, the contest has three dates, of which there will be a jam/ contest in different parts of the Taz. On the third and last date, the King of Taz will be crowned. This is a rad event promoting riders to ride everything but Liam at 514 also stressed that “you can compete in all or just 1 of the events. Of course the best chance anyone has a being crowned the King of Taz would be by riding in all three events but the park is open to riders also, the contest is just for those interested in competing.” This sounds like the best of both worlds, prizes at all three events, if your anywhere near Montreal make it out to this event!

Justin Schwanke: Backyard Chirp Squad

08 Dec Justin Schwanke: Backyard Chirp Squad

 

The man Justin came through with this awesome video of him killing his backyard ramps. I find it amazing that he carries the speed he needs across all that grass, I doubt I’d be able to jump half the gaps that he wraps into combos in this. Finishes off with the crew chirping in classic Justin video fashion. Loved the line at 1:12.

Aspotogan Point temporary bowl

06 Dec Aspotogan Point temporary bowl

Here in Nova Scotia (Hubbards, to be exact), back in the 1990s some dudes bought a piece of land on the ocean and began to build an incredible 20million$+ sea spa. The project ran into funding issues in 1994 and closed down.

This Fall, Red Bull came along and turned the inside of the building into a skatepark, as well as turning a waterpump foundation into a temporary concrete bowl. They filmed a video called Red Bull: Last Resort, which dropped on December 4th.

After Red Bull had left, Kyle, Coady and I went to check out the scene. The indoor stuff had been taken down, and the bowl was partially destroyed and filled with debris and water (couldn’t keep for insurance issues). We spent a day salvaging the bowl to ride it for the evening, before being completely filled in with dirt and rocks later that week.

We made a short video from the day, and named it after the Red Bull project that brought us the bowl. Shame it couldn’t have been left there for the public to ride it.
