LurkNYC – Vacancy

Screen Shot 2015-07-14 at 5.17.43 AM 1

With the plethora of New York summer edits, you can easily get lost in the mix of all that epic NYC skate edits from the multitude of visitors. On the other hand, there are those that hold it down in NYC year round, even when it might be in the freezing 20s and you have to wear 2 sweatshirts, gloves and can’t feel your fingers and face as you skate a ledge that was shoveled a week ago just so it would dry enough for this week’s session. A stalwart in the NYC scene is LurkNYC, and they just put out their epic Vacancy edit. LurkNYC¬† is the brainchild of Nick von Werssowetz, who has been prolifically cranking out skate clips/videos for the past 6 years (his “Strangers” edit dropped in January).

Featuring Jacob Gottlieb, Kevin Davis, Keith Hardy, Giovanni Vacca, Nick Carracino, Matt Genovese, Phil Rodriguez, Pat Hoblin, Danny Dipalo, Yonnie Cruz, Stu Kirst, Jason Byoun, Ian Twa, and Tyler Pacheco. And Giovanni Vacca’s frontside wallride over the hydrant is totally ridiculous! How is that even possible?

In HD and clocking in at 4 min 15 seconds, this little edit has all the straight up rawness that you’d expect from a New York montage. Coupled with the music of Pup the Craft’s UTPVK to set off the audio accompaniment, this little will get you more than hyped to go skate this weekend! Peep the edit below!

Wanderlust: Escape from New York Tour with the TOA crew

We ain’t gonna lie, we’re big fans of the Theories of Atlantis brands and we always love to see what they put out. We all know how cold East Coast winters can be, except down south in Florida, hence the title of this little tour vid which served as a little escape for the TOA crew. This little 13 minute edit features a host of riders including Ben Gore, Jimmy Lannon, Kevin Coakley, Dustin Eggeling, Dane Brady, Brendan Carroll, Piro Sierra, Yonnie Cruz, James Coleman and Jimmy Mastrocola.
