Episode 27: Election Time Chaos

In which we discuss freestyle stuff as usual – such as…

  • Some cool new wireless headphones that are great for FS practice.
  • Young Alex from London’s quick development as a freestyler and why Tony should fear him.
  • The new Powell board with some funky glass laminates.
  • Tony’s recent demo.
  • Michael’s absence this week, in order to attend a Rubic’s Cube festival.
  • Board gimmicks.
  • Etc, etc, etc…

Episode 26: Toe Spins, Broken Fingers, and other Foolishness

In this episode we discuss toe spins, Broken Fingers magazine, and various other freestyle-related things, including a great new website.

During the podcast we mention a new Freestyle Skateboarding site, the Freestyle Knowledge Base.

The intro music is of course Black Sabbath’s Neon Nights.

Here is Simon’s G-Turn Toe Spin…

Episode 24.1 – the 2016 World Freestyle Roundup

This is the first part of a 2-hour talk we had the other day, in which we debriefed Tony on his World Round experience. Apparently, fun was had by all and skateboarding still rules. Give it a listen.

Episode 23: Respect the Bear

We begin this episode with a discussion of the new Bear “Polar Bear” truck, in the smallest size (105mm), which is well-suited to freestyle board width, and which Tony has procured for his own enjoyment. I then edit out massive amounts of technical talk about trucks and bearings, and we move on to the actual act of riding skateboards and doing freestyle!

Here is the animated GIF that Simon refers us to at about 27 minutes.  http://cdn.skateboarding.transworld.net/wp-content/blogs.dir/440/files/2013/09/Busenitz_9Frames_v2.gif

Tony is working on a very detailed review, with precise measurement, of the Bear trucks. Look for that soon on the website.
