One of my favourite people to follow on Instagram right now is Toronto-based photographer Pat O’Rourke aka @chilligansisland. He’s got a great eye for street snaps and he makes the best skate videos (he just released a new one). Lots more images from his feed below.

Video of the Day: Mind-Bending Christopher Nolan-esque Skate Film

joe-pease-level02 joe-pease-level03 joe-pease-level01joe-pease-level04

Here’s a really clever little skateboard video (thanks to a whole lot of post-production wizardry) from filmmaker Joe Pease. The sequences feel like something out of a Christopher Nolan film; what appears at first to be another boring old kaleidoscope video effect is shattered when the first skateboarder rolls right through the frame.

Watch Joe Pease’s “Level” below to see what I mean!

Nike SB and Quartersnacks present Johnny Wilson’s latest video, “Core”. As competition skating and circus stunt “extreme” sports only get more ridiculous, good ol’ street skating is the thing I enjoy watching the most.

Bobby Worrest, Hjalte Halberg, Nick Boserio, Antonio Durao, Cyrus Bennett, Max Palmer and Andrew Wilson spend a week rolling around upstate New York. Watch “Core” below.

The Most Creative Skateboarding on Instagram: Daewon Song [10 Videos]

daewonsong

Daewon Song is a skateboard legend (and was pretty much already a legend when I was a kid) and yet somehow his Instagram is more fresh and creative than pretty much everyone else’s out there. I wouldn’t call this a top 10 because his entire feed is insane but here are 10 clips of the most creative skateboarding being shared to Instagram right now.

Included here are things like a 360 double flip on a board without wheels, bearings only, a late flip with the help of a friend, and some manual wizardry. Whether you are a skateboarder or not this is pure creative inspiration. Enjoy.
