Streets Is Talkin’: Shane Goes

In this installment of Streets is Talkin’, we showcase none other than Australian powerhouse Shane O’Neill’s new street part “Shane Goes” by Skate Mental and Thrasher Magazine.

Shane Goes 1 Shane did what at Wallenberg? Wait, is that VX?

Skate Mental’s Shane O’Neill has been on a tear for the past 5 years, putting out a non-stop barrage of NBDs that make it seem like his skateboarding is perpetually on video game mode. If you think you’ve seen it all, be prepared to be blown away even more by this part.

Shane Oneill 1Without giving too much away, he opens the video with a heavy NBD at Wallenberg(the 9 club!). Has a switch flip backlip on a rail, plus a crooked grind nollie flip late flip out on a rail. Oh and he so casually bigspin backlips the Sylmar rail and switch flips a triple set in the rain.

We also dig the choice of Beach House as the soundtrack. And we think we might have broken the rewind button on our comp!! Filmed and edited by James James. Go watch this now!!

Shane rides for Skate Mental, Thunder Trucks, Grizzly Grip, Spitfire Wheels, FKD Bearings, Nike SB, Fourstar Clothing, Monster, Diamond

Remix: Dennis Durrant – All You Need To Know

Dennis Durrant and Tony TaveThe lads over at The Bay Skate have just dropped “All You Need To Know”, a remix of epic proportions with 10 minutes of Dennis Durrant footage from over the years. If you’re not familiar with Dennis you’ve probably been living under a rock for quite a while. This Aussie powerhouse has been quietly killin’ it for well over a decade. Following stints on Popwar, Mystery and Circa, and with a repertoire that includes Dennis Durrant ollieone of the best kickflips in the game, as well as fakie flip switch front crooks on rails on lock,  the eternal question that remains is “why isn’t Dennis pro?” With footage from the US, China and of course Australia, this remix presents a really terrific retrospective of Dennis’ career. Recently added to the Adidas Skateboarding International Team and getting his name on an Adi Ease shoe, Dennis’ career definitely seems to be picking up steam. Dennis Durrant switch heel watergapWith his addition to the Element Australia team, here’s hoping that 2015 brings big things for Dennis Durrant. With cameos by Tony Tave, Tommy Fynn and Windsor James. Remix was edited by Kane Stewart.
