PRO BONO PROMO: Helas Sporting Club

Helas Polo Club Lucas Puig 1Helas Polo Club Lucas Puig

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you’ve probably heard of Lucas Puig’s Helas Caps brand. Aside from bringing a totally new aesthetic to the skate hat game (with a clever play on the Polo aesthetic), Helas has been nothing short of an endless fountain of cream soda amazing skate edits. Whether it’s an edit of iPhone clips or VX throwaways, you can bet that every one of their shorts are top notch. The latest Helas Sporting Club edit is again no different, bringing the heat with four and a half minutes of goodness and is filmed primarily around Barcy with a couple of clips from Shanghai. Featuring Lucas Puig, Luypa Sin, Jesus Fernandez, Javier Sarmiento, Thierry Gormit, Marek Zaprazny, Roman Lisivka, Pedro Attenborough, Jose Vivero Diaz, JB Gillet, Max Geronzi, Charles Collet, Stephen Khou, Alex Maison, Kristian Krasimirov, JP Villa and Karl Salah.

Helas Polo Club Luy Pa SinDefinitely super psyched to see footage of Luy Pa Sin ripping, and his pop shove front crook at Plaza Universitat is worth a watch alone. Jesus Fernandez really lights up Sants with a fakie flip crooks, fakie pop shove switch 5-0 180 out followed up with a back 3 down the curb. Now say that again really quick. And if you blink you might miss Javier Sarmiento’s cameo at Sants as well!

We all know that Marek Zaprazny is a beast on the board, and his kickflip over a Jersey barrier off flat followed by a high speed back tail is more than enough of a reminder of that fact.

This whole edit is chock full of amazing skating and definitely proof that in this age of over saturated skateboard media content, sometimes less is more. And of course Lucas closes the video out with a banger! Peep the edit and get hyped already! – HK

Footy Dump: Something Sinister B-Sides/Extras

Something Sinister Stephen Khou 1  Something Sinister Dan Leung 2

The Legion of Sorts crew has been releasing a bunch of amazing B-sides/Extras footy from Tommy Zhao’s “Something Sinister” video(which by the way, if you’ve never heard of that video, which rock have you been living under for the past year?). You all remember how crazy that video was(and with a lineup of Lucas Puig, Dan Leung, Stephen Khou, Jay Meador, Brian Dolle, Mark Del Negro, and Brian Peacock you know it’s gonna come correct). And while it might have been your first introduction to the Brian Peacock Show, you gotta remember that one of Delaware’s finest has been killin’ it for a really long while already(Chill, we’ll get into that in an upcoming post!). We thought we’d put together a handy little compilation of the B-sides for your viewing pleasure, and just so you can realize how ridiculous the actual video is if these are the B-sides. And yes, Dan Leung wins the award for making bailing a handrail look like a trick with the most casual/nonchalant walk down a handrail ever. Shanghai’s skatespots look totally amazing and Shanghai Love Park is a definite spot on our list. Go support independent skate videos!

In no particular order:

Stephen Khou’s B-sides.

Dan Leung’s B-sides.

Jay Meador’s B-sides.

Timi McMeel’s Extras.
