No athlete in action sports wants to train into a robot, risk their lives on the daily and not enjoy it. This isn’t about the fake interviews or one of those played out Hollywood style flicks. This is about the fun of action sports and simply life away from competition. Shout out to the man behind it all, Ryan Walters.
None of this years dunk contest entrants could stand a chance against 19-year-old Minnesota Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine’s homage to a classic big-screen sports moment. Stepping onto the court in a #23 Michael Jordan Tune Squad jersey from the movie ‘Space Jam,’ LaVine proceeded to blow away the competition by recreating the film’s seminal slam dunk.
Devon Smillie is one of the best street riders on Earth right now. When fellow top pros are at the same skatepark as him, they shut up and watch when Devon takes a run. Lucky for us, Devon has been putting in work with Francis Castro for the past few months and the result is this bafflingly technical 2 song monster.
“Rock, Scissors, Paper. It’s how we determine the order for who’s going boatie, it’s the beginning of every underwater adventure we set upon. Once that’s sorted, follow us into the blue. We go hunting for Big Red Emperors, but that’s not all we come across.” – Youngbloods Spearfishing
Finnish poker players have garnered an international reputation for aggression, and it seems that tendency applies even to their beauty pageant winners. Sara Chafak represented Finland in the Miss Universe pageant, but turned out to be just as aggressive as she is congenial. The former Miss Finland took part in the Shark Cage poker TV show, which pits celebrities and poker pros against each other battling for a $1 million first place prize.
Meet Sergeant Stubs (or Ian Parkinson, as his mother calls him). He’s a double lower-leg amputee, not to mention an absolute f**ken inspiration. He’s been re-learning how to skateboard since losing his legs. It’s believed that showing recent amputees that they can still partake in everyday activities can be an incredibly important part of their recovery, so what Sergeant Stubbs is doing is awesome on so many levels.
Arian Foster almost didn’t make it. Many times the dream he has held since he was a child—the dream of playing in the National Football League (NFL)—was nearly lost. Arian Foster’s words have now been immortalised on film. Director Todd Martin said his team first came across the poem “Where We Dwell” last year on Foster’s website. “We were deeply inspired by his words and thought they would serve as a powerful backbone for a potential short film,” Martin said. After devising a treatment for the film, they pitched the vision to Foster’s team who gave their blessing.
“Jason Watts really went in on this one. He took on a bunch of the biggest bowls in Australia and came out on top. He’s got the height, the style and the tricks. Such a pleasure to have a unique guy like Jason on Haro. Filmed entirely in Australia between the city’s of Brisbane and Sydney.” – Haro Bikes. Shout out to Stephen Morrisey for the submission.
