Its pretty crazy to think about the concentration of yet-to-be legendary riders residing in Bethlehem, PA in the late 90′s. Its awesome to think that dudes like Luc-e, Butcher, Nate Wessel, Taj and Joe Rich were shaping modern street riding as we know it and still putting in their time at the POSH trails as well. Get a look at what Bethlehem looked like in 1997 in this scene report from issue 21 of Props.
The vibe was loose, but the rules were strict: no blasting this street jam out on social media. This made for a just-right sized crew of locals, local pros and some visitors to mobbing from spot to spot around Long Beach. There’s some dope clips in here courtesy Garrett Reeves, Sean Morr, Dan Conway, Jared Swafford and many more. But Eric Lichtenberger though…that dude was having himself a day and came through with some fire you’re definitely gonna want to see.
Any time you see Steady Rollin‘ in the title, you can always count on a video full of good times on bikes. And the latest comes from the concrete waves of Pennsylvania and New York. Word is, that skatepark train at the end of this has been going for over two months now.

I’ve always been into these mixes from the Premier Store and after dropping twenty of them, they should be getting an automatic play from you by now too. Its always crackin with MF Doom track.
Nathan Williams has been a busy dude this year, filming for the United DVD, Etnies Chapters, Monster’s Above/Below and the Cinema video. Like Tom Dugan last week, Nathan takes his turn in the hot seat to answer questions from a couple of his Etnies teammates. Chase D killin em again in this one!
Since the inception of Sparky’s France, they’ve been making moves and building a contingent of dope riders starting with Kevin Kalkoff and Nico Badet. While out on the latest string of Shadow’s Keep It Local tours, Nico and filmer/TM Ryan Chadwick were able to put together this rad new video officially welcoming him to the team. Nico makes that pegless coaster steeze look good!
French style cat Kevin Kalkoff put in some serious work for the Make It Happen DVD, stacking enough footage for Will Evans to cut his own remix section. From the streets of South Africa to his local bowls, you can tell Kevin was riding his ass off for this project. Dudes got style for kilometers!
Given enough time and exposure, you can grow tired of almost anything. But after watching this video, I realized that that I’ll never tire of seeing Mono and his friends ride Barcelona. You can always count on videos from Mono and Fernando to have the most authentic local vibes and given all the riders that pass through every year, everything they put out is fire. Check out the latest mix from Mono featuring a full cast of homies including Simone Barraco, Michal Smelko, Kenneth Tencio, Vicente Candel, Eric Bahlman and many more.
It looked like a rad afternoon in the woods of Lock Haven, Pennsylvania for this year’s Heathens Jam. Everyone from the locals to the pros were ripping, but Chris Doyle was pretty much putting on a demo!
The Stranger boys have been doing work all summer, taking trips and stacking clips for a new project. They just sent through this promo giving you a preview of whats to come and an introduction to the newest member of the crew. After the first Stranger promo and the Trip With Stranger mixtape, whatever they’re cooking up is sure to be dope!
Early last year Matthias Dandios made a trip out to San Diego to ride and chill with the Markit crew, but with filming for MARKIT ZERO still in full swing, Matthias’ footage got lost somewhere on one of Christian Rigal’s hard drives. Luckily Christian was able to dig it all up and put together this amazing new video. Our flatland editor Jim was floored by this edit saying that his favorite thing about Matthias’ hybrid street/flat style is that all the flat is still completely insane in its own right. If you like his unique brand of street riding, this is the video you’ve been waiting for.
While all your classmates are going back to school running the same Jansport since 7th grade, you can pull up with the dope new cotton canvas Cult Stash bag. Hit Cult’s webstore and cop that.
Even when you think outside the bowl, both Colorado and New Mexico have an ton of super fun parks. All the street sections in this new one from ABQ DNV look like perfect places to chill, warm up and maybe learn some new tricks. No quarterpipes were harmed in the filming of this video, making it about 10x better than the average skatepark edit.
Kris Fox and Larry Edgar had some of the fastest lines and highest airs at the Van Doren Invitational bowl contest a couple weeks ago. Get a look at some highlights from their runs in practice, semis and the finals, where Kris got 6th and Larry got 10th.
From lost memory cards to flaky filmers and the country of New Zealand apparently just getting internet last week, it seems like Joe Simpson had every problem under the sun trying to get his official welcome to S&M edit together, the least of which was actually riding.
There’s not a lot of Tim Knoll‘s tricks us mere mortals could pick up from a how-to, but he put together this one featuring his signature Knoll Roll. Before you take this to the hood of a car, you’d better practice on some pallets…
The second installment of this series documenting Tyler Fernengel’s move from Detroit to San Diego sees him pack up, leave home and get on the road. First stop was Chicago for a session with Brian Kachinsky, then he dips to Colorado to ride the downtown Denver and Arvada parks.

Episode six of Raditudes starts off with a mellow sunset session at Sheep Hills, but things get interesting quickly when Hucker busts out his DJI Phantom Quadcopter. For a minute you’ll be thinking, “damn, he’s pretty good at this…” and then he almost beheads Navaz, flying it straight into his camera. You’re definitely gonna want to see this footage!
Jake Seeley is now officially lacing up Loteks and comes through with that heat for his welcome edit! While Jake was in Austin, he stayed in the streets and stacked a ton of footage with now-teammate and fellow grind wizard Charlie Crumlish, resulting in yet another bangin web vid.
