Wanderlust: DLXHI – Haoles in Hawai’i feat. Busenitz, Gerwer and Anderson

Something different in this episode of Wanderlust with this fun little edit of Hawai’i from the good folks over at DLX with Dennis Busenitz, Frank Gerwer and Mike Anderson visiting the main island of O’ahu, skating classic spots like A’ala Park, Hawai’i Kai, plus plenty of shred action at the newly inaugurated DLXHI plant.

By the very title of “Haoles in Hawai’i”, you know that the trio of Busenitz, Gerwer and Anderson won’t be taking themselves too seriously, and the laugh factor is definitely high on this one, especially from the always entertaining Frank Gerwer (that green Anti-Haole t-shirt Frank is sporting is just genius). And if you aren’t sure what “haole” means, you need to look that up. Haha!! Just watch the video if you ever need any reminder not to take yourself (or life) too seriously. Of course, being that this group consists of representatives from DLX’s Real, Krooked and Antihero teams, the skating is guaranteed top notch. These guys are really ATFs and make everything they skate look like so much fun. Special props to Dennis for that ollie out to frontside 50-50 on the oververt wall railing at A’ala. That shit’s ridiculous!

Mike Anderson casually annihilates Hawai’i Kai skatepark and Frank Gerwer shows us how to make those back lips and back feebs extra lazy, just how you’d like them.

If you’ve never seen Sebo Walker skate, you’re definitely missing out. Sebo has been killing it for so long and is one of the nicest dudes in skateboarding you could ever meet. Originally from Salem, Oregon, and now residing in Los Angeles, this super talented skateboarder is also equally adept as an artist, and has also been putting out a host of amazing Boardstix grip tape art for a minute (check out his @seboart page here).

He’s in this year’s Berrics 2UP contest and just put out a really remarkably mind-boggling part that showcases his creativity on a skateboard. If you’ve seen him skate(yes he skates as good in person) you know there’s going to be some step offs in there, but trust me when I say they’re next level. The opening step off wallie bonk nollie heel(or is it a flip, whatchamacall it?) to nose many pop into the quarter pipe makes absolutely no sense. You definitely don’t want to miss this! This will really change the way you perceive what’s possible on a skateboard.

Sebo rides for Krooked Skateboards, Independent Trucks, Spitfire Wheels, Bones Bearings, Lakai, and Official Hats.

Wanderlust: Krooked’s “Selfie Sticks and Korean Tricks” Tour

Jake Johnson ollieKrooked Skateboards recently made a trip to Seoul, South Korea and just released a rad little video of their trip in conjunction with the Thrasher Magazine article.  With a crew consisting of Bobby Worrest, Mike Anderson, Sebo Walker and guest Jake Johnson you know you’re guaranteed nothing but top notch skateboarding.The footage consists of a ton of street skating(with a really cool water gap session), a demo in a sick looking skatepark, some wrestling, the mandatory fireworks fight, and more street skating. And the occasional selfie stick trick shot. Yup.

Mike Anderson bonelessSebo Walker has some really chill lines in the video, we especially like his night line with a nollie heel front lip(YES he can!!) on a natural bank to flatbar followed by a backtail bigspin on a wooden bench.

Mike Anderson makes bonelesses look really fun, and Bobby Worrest crushes it with frontboards down a steep ass rail. Jake Johnson has a really chill 50-50 on what looks like a marble kinked hubba.

Mike Anderson ollieSeoul definitely seems to have spots for days, and the video’s vibe is clearly one of  all around fun clocking in at just under 6 minutes. We’re also digging the choice of music with Scraper and this video will definitely hype you up to go skate this weekend! Peep the video below.
