Pro Bono Promo: Primitive Presents Carlos Ribeiro

One of the original three riders (alongside Paul Rodriguez and Nick Tucker) revealed as part of Primitive Skateboarding’s inaugural team at the brand’s launch, Carlos “dudu” Ribeiro has been killin’ it for a while now. From his L-R-G intro part to mini parts for Independent as well as numerous Instagram snippets, the Brazilian powerhouse with the ridiculously good switch back 3s has been turning quite a few heads with his effortless switch game as well as bag of smooth tech and a reputation for making the hardest tricks look too easy.

Primitive Skateboarding dropped this Carlos Ribeiro full part a little while ago, and we had been meaning to put this up for a minute but got a little caught up with work on our print Krak Mag (if you want to get the inside scoop on content, each KrakBox comes with a print Krak Mag!). But as they say, better late than never! So, just in case you missed this, you definitely want to watch Carlos’ five and a half minute Primitive part a couple times, just cause he’s got shit so dialed you’re gonna forget he’s actually regular. Perfect switch flips, and a switch heel backtail to regular at an iconic Philly ledge to stair drop that a certain East Coast tech powerhouse dropped a switch back tailed bigspin at (any guesses who we’re talking about and in what video? E-mail us the correct answer at box@skatekrak.com t0 win something cool!).

Oh, yeah that really was a switch flip switch manny nollie flip out at Courthouse. Skating fast, with an effortless light-footed style (just peep that switch frontside 180 crooks revert on that curved ledge) and crazy pop, Carlos drops a seriously heavy part with one hell of an ender. -HK

Carlos rides for Primitive Skateboarding, Independent Trucks, L-R-G Clothing, Autobahn Wheels, Andale Bearings, and Nike SB.

Primitive Skateboarding is definitely pulling no punches and just dropped a new edit of Brian Peacock skating JKwon at night. As you might expect, the latest installment of the Brian Peacock Show, “Brian Peacock’s LA Nights” filmed and edited by Kyle Steneide definitely doesn’t disappoint. JKwon is one of those all time spots, that has seen a huge scene resurgence in the past couple of years. As usual, Brian skates casually, but drops some heavy lines here. With an opening line of a nollie frontside 270 backlip on the JKwon block, a nollie tre followed by a frontside 180 switch manny to switch backside 360 out on the block, you know this edit’s gonna be chock full of tech hammers. Also super digging the little Karl Watson homage with the front nose frontside 270 out on the Bell ledge! And of course, who doesn’t love a little Devine Calloway footage! And Brian, mind telling us the cheat code on those nollie frontside 180 switch backside nosegrind reverts?

This edit’s the shit, you know the JKwon block is hot! Peep the vid below and get out there now!- HK

Brian Peacock – Full Clip Friday

The stuff Brian Peacock comes up with is seriously tweaked. You’ve already seen his two song last part in Tommy Zhao’s “Something Sinister”, his welcome to DC Shoes (China) part, but now prepare to have your mind blown all over again by the Brian Peacock Show with his Full Clip Friday part filmed at P-Rod’s park. It’s not just his tech wizardry that’s so ridiculous, it’s that he can string the craziest tech combinations together in lines that leave you scratching your head and asking, fakie, switch, nollie or regular? And he definitely has some ridiculous reaction time man! And just for the record, he’s regular.

Brian Peacock with just another casual 4 second line.

Brian does the craziest tricks in the most ridiculous lines that just seem out of reach except maybe after a million years of practice. That line with the frontside nosegrind revert on the bench to fakie 360 no-comply on the bank followed by the backside nosegrind nollie bigspin out wins the award for most tricks squeezed into 4 seconds. Sheesh. Brian is seriously on a whole other level. Peep the edit and the ender below! #wizardstatus.
