Tippin Tricks Nahhhhhhh

Gilbert has some of the best tre bombs I've ever seem, so it's only fitting that he has quite the nice fakie tre's as well. Trint and Gilbert were bored so they decided to film a lil trick tip so you can do fakie tres too, thats if you haven't already mastered them. Heres a sick lil Switch Nosegrind that I shot with Matt Gravel in Vic during the summer. It made the SBC Photo Annual so give that guy a high five for throwing down! Also things have been starting to get in the works over here at FNF with some new crew members on the way and some new surprises in a couple months so get HYPED!

Shreeedddd STICK

All I have to say is thank god that we're through the dreaded inbetween of skating and shredding! Grouse and Seymore have been open for about a week now and I was finally able to make it up to Seymore yesterday with Gilbert, Trint and Peter. I didn't have a second to shred cause Trint was throwing down trick after trick after trick. I didn't really mind because I suck at jibbing anyways hahaha. So here is a still and a sequence out of the many Trint threw down also Clayton whipped together a montage for shits and gigs!

P.A. Alllll Day

My home town is a small city on Vancouver Island called Port Alberni. I love that place, amazing for growing up but it gets hella boring as you get older, for me anyways. I miss the place like crazy sometimes cause its so chill and relaxing. Barley any traffic, fresh air, lakes, not much crime, buttttt...... no skate spots hahahaha. But here is a short video made by my homie Benson Wishart, so take some and watch this vid and see the place I love to call home HOLLA!

Errr Body Want that Mase, Mase

I happened to find some new Mase while I was lurkin Def Sounds and I was actually surprised that it wasn't terrible hahaha. This has nothing to do with anything mainly becuase I'm going insane from all this rain. I haven't been able to shoot in the last couple days so I thought I'd throw up this Soros's photo I shot last spring. Its one of my favorite shots so hopefully you guys dig it holla!

VIC - tory

Well this weekend Victoria went better than any of us could have imagined! On Friday I was deciding whether or not to bring my camera gear because, one, the weather had a 60% chance or rain, and two, my bag weighs like 30 pounds and my light stands are a bitch to carry around. But I had a feeling that I needed to bring my shit so off we went Friday night on our adventure.

On the ferry ride there we encountered 40 knot winds and the boat was rocking back and forth like crazy. I was stoked for something other than another boring ferry but Gilbert I guess gets sea sick and looked like he was going to puke for a bit. On Saturday we woke up to
dry ground so we got right down to business so we cruised over to Higher Ground to get some fresh wood and gear for the day. We had no wheels so Brando was nice enough to hook us up with his whip for the day to cruise around.

First we hit up Vic West to warm up before hitting the street to find spots. Vic West is always a good time and Sean decided that he was going to this Pole Jam to Switch Wall Manny this already strange obsticle. How he did this I don't know. I don't ask questions anymore hahaha.



Sean Hanebury - Pole Jam to Switch Wall Manny

After a hype warm up sesh we cruised over to 360 Board Shop to say a quick holla to Matt G, Soros, Drew and John Fraser. John decided he was over sitting in the shop and wanted to come cruise instead! Next we hit up this School on Hillside Street which hosts the longest nine set I've ever saw. Gilbert landed the first Tre it had seen in 3 trys. We set up and peaced out with in 10 minutes! After that we hit up Beacon Hill Park for awhile where Sean threw down a back tail (photo will be on the Instrumental Site soon). By this time it was about 4:15 getting very windy, cold, and looking like rain was about to hit. So we decided it was time to get one last trick. This is a spot I stumbled apon 3 years ago and never had the chance to shoot at there till this weekend! I was so stoked and then Gilbert hucked this Ninja'd kickflip inbetween gusts of wind to stoke me even more!



Gilbert Turenne - Kickflip

After this we packed it in and Me, Gilbert and my homie Blaine went downtown and got wasted to celebrate hahahaha. Even when we arrived back in Van after being all hung over and tired from traveling Gilbert went out and filmed till 1 last night with Trint to get you a new montage! Gilbert looked like shit this morning on the way to work so I can't wait to see what they got done. Anyways I don't want to write anymore pppppppeace!

Island Weekend.... Round 2

I left my cell phone in Victoria last weekend. Needless to say I didn't mind having my phone but at the same time I hate how Dependant we are on those little pieces of technology. I had the option of coming back to Vic for a birthday party tonight and since my phone was already there I decided it would be a good idea to go haha. But the difference this time is that I have all my gear and I dragged Sean Hanebury and Gilbert with me as well! So keep you heads up from some Vic updates at the begging on the week, everyone have a bangin weekend and enjoy this steezin front feeble from Jordan Repin!

Legal errrrr Where!

Today was Remembrance Day but more importantly it was Gilbert's birthday yesterday! Hes now 21 years young and officially legal to do whatever the hell he wants anywhere in the world HOLLLAAA! So next time you see that fool skating around tell him happy birthday twice just because he hates having it said to him haha. Since Gilbert is now a man it seems fitting that he would throw this Inward heel down the man sized Hot Spot 5 block, GET SOME!

Warm Ups

This spot turned out to be the new home of the DC showroom and before construction was completed, we were lucky enough to get a sesh in. Along with these warm up tricks, both Gilbert and Marten got their bangers and ultimately the only tricks to go down these 2 beast spots.

Also here is a sick underground sesh yesterday from Trint on that Video Camera and skating from Gilbert, Joey Moore, and John Moir to keep you lurkin, HOLLA!

Vacation Weekend

Got away to Victoria for Brandon Wells birthday in Victoria. It was a perfect weekend for it cause it rained the whole time, so I didn't have to feel bad about not skating or shooting haha. Hopefully everyone had a great weekend like I did, if not this huge 15 foot Ollie by Dylan Timmins will cheer you up! Ya naaa meeannn

Yeeeeeziiirrrr

When its nice you have to go skate, in the day or at night. Over the weekend there was amazing Autumn weather so we headed downtown Saturday and Sunday to sesh! Gilbert threw down multiple times and this beautiful three flip was one of them!



Tonight Sean and me just so happened to be heading back to West Van at the same time. I was hyped because I so happened to have my camera gear and there was a photo we had been wanting to shoot for a couple days and this was the time to get it done! Sean smoothly ollies up the first bench and then gaps to Front Lip then we hop on the bus and go home haha. Now I'm hittin the sac, pppppeaceeeee!

So we decided to meet up at the North Van underground spot to get some skating in. Gilbert threw down a bunch of shit as usual and I actually got to sesh a bit myself for once! Anyways heres a little something Geoff Dermer threw down at the new Monke Park.

Van-Germany

You don't actually realize how much of a pull the Movie Industry has on Vancouver until your crusin down the street turn a corner and all of a sudden your in Germany. Buses driving by are German, advertisements are German, all the cars have German license plates and even German Police and SWAT vehicles! Needless to say it is one of the sickest things you could stumble upon when out skating! I didn't feel like shooting a sequence cause that's all I've been doing as of late so here is a still of Sean doing a buttery ass front board to switch back 5-0 on a buttery ass marble ledge in the heart of Germany hahaha!

When life give you rain, you skate indoors.... or underground haha. The weekend was filled with rain but that didn't stop us from going out and finding a way to get some shit done. Friday was a good ol' chill underground sesh, and sunday I got a sneak peak of the new Monke / Kitsch indoor skate park at their warehouse. I think it opens to the public at the end of this week so if your hurtin for a skate make your way out there! Its basically like a mini Berics and I dont feel like explaining all the stuff thats in there so your gonna have to go check it haha. Anyways heres a going away seqeunce for Houli as hes back to Japan in two days, we'll miss you homie!

All In One Day?

While me and Clayton were off doing thangs, Gilbert decided he also wanted to go do some thangs. Gilbert and North Van filmer, Trint Thomas hit up Lonsdale on a mission to film a whole montage in a day. You might think it would be hard to film a montage by yourself in a day but Gilbert seems to have endless tricks in the bag. So have a watch and enjoy, also heres a nicely executed frontside flip from Mr. Trevor Houlihan, HOLLA!

I Hate Rain

I don't hate many things but rain is one of the few! I can dig snow cause you can go shred and jib around the city and shit but when it comes to rain you cant do anything. Unfortunately Mother Nature is slowly reminding us that fall is around the corner so I guess I'm just going to have to deal with it haha. Anyways as usual things are busy around here. Got back from a nice weekend on the island where me and Trevor went to pick up my drumsfrom home and got to hang out with some homies. Other than that everyone has been skating and filming up a storm! I some how managed to film a line, not sure how long its been but none the less here it be, also heres a text book back smith from Marten!

Dylan's brother Reed came out from Langley and met up with us while the rest of the crew consisted of Mike Campbell, Desmond Hootsie, Seth Cardinal, Marten Maxwell and myself. Along the way we came across this spot and Dylan took a different approach to it and came thru with this gnarly clip of the day.

Make Things Happen!

Everyday people sit around and watch their lives fly by them. See I have mad ADD or ADHD whatever you want to call it, basically I'm hyper as shit. So when it comes down to it I have an easier time getting off my ass and going out and doing something cause I get bored in about 5 minutes of doing nothing. What I'm trying to get at is you live once so start making moves towards what you want in life. Not in a week, or on the weekend, or tomorrow, start working towards that dream now! Everything thats good in life takes work to get it so I would like to welcome Marten Maxwell as my new roommate, and new housemate for the rest of us! Marten has bounced off that rock I call home to make shit happen in the city so get hyped for some new footage and photos coming from him right quick! So in the spirit of things heres a quick video Clayton made up of Marten of when he came for a visit in the summer. You might have watched it already but suck it up and watch that P Rod nollie heel a couple more times! Also here is a nice looking kicky flip from Gilbert!

Tricks are for Kids!

Tricks are for Kids!! from FnF Media on Vimeo.


Been getting things done lately and have clocked tons o footy with Gilbert for an up coming spotlight to be completed soon. Was down at waterfront yesterday evening and after seeing a tre flip on flatground, some nearby kiddies asked to see it down the stairs(which we were already skating anyways), Gilbert complies and here it is. First Try.

Vic Town!

The last couple days have been record breaking heat here in Van which makes it kinda hard to skate cause you sweat instantly. Benson and Juelz have kindly blessed us with their presence over the last couple days and have been gettin stuff done. Were out to get some shots this morn to feel some what productive haha. Anyways heres a flick I shot with Terell the other day and some footy courtosy of my homie Brendon Sommpi, enjoy!!

Global Warming?

Well the weather has been completely off the maps lately with Mother Nature throwing all sorts of stuff our way. Thunder and lightning storm the other night and now temps in the low 40's HOLY! I've taken a couple days off to hang with my fam and start looking for a new pad for September, but back to work today! Got a little web article in the works for Concrete right now just have to get a few photos for it over the next couple days so that should be up there soon. The article is titled, "5 Tips for a Hyphy Skate Mission!". So I'll keep everyone posted on that. Until then here is one the gnarliest pole jams I've seen done by none other than Brent Wingrove (B Dubs)! Enjoy and get heated!!!!

And damn was it was a good sesh. Clayton is in the works of a UBC Friday Montage which should be out right quick and I'm hyped! Anyways heres a shot of Seth crookin the UBC 9 rail with ease! Everyone have a sick saturday BRRRAATTT!

Back In Biz

Was finally able to go shoot again after over a week vacation! Again huge thanks going out to Dan k for letting me borrow his Holla bro I owe you like whoa! Got off work a couple hours early so me and Clayton were able to meet up with our homies Jordan Bacon and Mike Campbell to go do some shooting out in North Van. We eventually made our way out to Capilano College to skate the infamous gap. It was actually a bit bigger than I thought and Mike ended up throwing down a perfect tre bomb over it. We were all super hyped after that and decided to call it a night and go chill for awhile. Gonna be out shooting tomorrow so there should be some posts coming your way right quick, HOLLA!

Back To The City

Had a super sick week back on the island! The Monke / Kitsch demo was super sick with a guest appearance from the Push Wheel team. Spencer hooked everyone up with burgs and I must say hes a hell of a chef, except the salmonella that he gave everyone hahahah jk. After that it was off the Port for a quick visit and was able to shoot this sick pole jam with sean before we ripped off to tofino!


Sean Hanebury - Steep Pole Jamin [o]Matt MacLeod

We ripped off to tofino pretty early with my good homies the Messer twins (Chris and Blaine) and Sean to sesh the tuff park for awhile until we went back to Jamies neighbors place that had the most beautiful ocean view to set up camp. The next day was the good ol Canada Day which also ment the annual Tuff City Skate park comp which was amazing! Check the Instrumental site in the next couple days for a write up on it with some photos! But now back in the city and my none other than Jordan Pletz is living here now and time to get shit done hollaaa!
