A new Palace Skateboards video featuring the whole team skating the east coast of the United States. What a perfect thing to watch on a Friday! Oh, and wait for it. Lucas Puig has got a little something for you.
Besides the tour stops in London and in Paris the adidas Skateboarding squad have also went to Berlin. A few of you probably remember the video we posted of Magnus Bordewick skating up the stairs at Frankfurter Tor. Well, the SW Flip was missing but here you have it. Another highlight is the few street skate sections inbetween the demos.
Blondey McCoy unveils Us and Chem. as his fifth solo show. If you happen to be in London these days, make sure to go to:
Heni Gallery, 6-10 Lexington Street, Soho from July 27 to August 27, 2017. Monday – Sunday: 10-6pm.
“In feeling blue, tragically, the natural thing to do is stay blue. The creating of these new works has proven to me, more than ever before, that expressionism and making artwork is a way of temporarily exorcising that feeling. The show was created out of a compulsion to create, not one to show off, throw a party or make money. It’s making has been a revelation in accepting the need to treat bipolar as a blessing rather than a curse, and to perpetually guarantee myself that from long hum drum periods of heightened sensitivity, my most genuine and life affirming artwork is born.” Words by Blondey McCoy.
Adidas went all out for this one, almost the whole team came to the city of angels to skate and hang out. But even though all the heavy hitters were there it was the new addition to the team Magnus Bordewick who outshined everybody with his pop and non-conventional style. Norway keeps on giving us new and interesting skaters.
The legendary London skate shop teams up with one of skateboarding’s most unpredictable brands. While we are at it let’s be honest we know there were some skeptics out there but Blondey Mccoy is developing into quite the skater to watch.
Reebok seems to be teasing the skate scene at the moment. There was the failed entry via DGK which we felt was cool but as Stevie Williams put it maybe a bit too early.
Afterwards, the brand left skateboarding for a bit, skateboarders weren’t really wearing the shoes, that all changed when they did their first collab with Palace, which made us want to try some shoes on and it made people think that Reebok might move back into skating. For a moment there Blondey McCoy was ripping in them but after his move to the three stripes, things died down again.
The third coming started with Shawn Powers and continues with collabos like these and to be honest we hope it stays the way it is now because sometimes things don’t need to be crystal clear they can remain in the mist and still work.
This is a office favorite! Chewy Cannon, Benny Fairfax & Blondey McCoy in “Away Days”. Not only the Lucien Clarke cameo is a highlight but also the three clearly different styles mixed together; maybe it’s a Palace thing:
If you haven’t seen the video in whole, make yourself comfortable and skip back to the beginning:
Ancient cameras, constant image flaws, kind of odd music, names in triangles and very exciting skateboarding. Yes, it is the new Palace full length! So hit the play button and find yourself in a modern world that is depicted like a throwback into the mid or late 90’s.
