  Back To Core – JBay Winter Fest feat. Tanika Hoffman from Silver Bullet Productions on Vimeo. Yes, yes, that was a pun, thanks to some bastardisation work on a helmet rig for a GoPro. I like it, particularly for the surfing and bits. With the Billabong Pro giving SA a wide berth this year, the townsfolk of Jeffery’s Bay have decided to carry on regardless and throw some proper coastal gees into a festival featuring a grand spectrum of events from long-boarding and mountain biking to an open surfing event as well as a fins-free frictionless event. It all looks pretty cool, with some big names, Mark Occhilupo, Sean Holmes, Greg Emslie, Ryan Payne, Paul Canning, I AM WOK, Dale Staples, Frankie Oberholzer, Dave Rastovich and Warren Dean competing in the open. Dates: 6 – 14 July 2013 See ya’ll there yo

I recently purchased a Gunslinger skateboard and have been using it to casually carve around the neighbourhood and get milk from the shops. Coolest way to buy milk everrr. When I bought it the salesman asked how much sliding I would be doing and how often I will go over 50km/h. I acted cool as a cucumber and LOL’ed in his face and said, hopefully not much and never. Not so for this cray cray skater bombing it down Kloof Nek and setting off the speeding camera… awesome. [Thanks Phil] rennton

Ever have one of those days where you end up engaging in a whole heap of cray cray activities to get something done only to realise you could have achieved it much quicker and without using amazeball Red Bull athletes to do it? No, me neither but sometimes just sometimes the long way is the best way. Watch this  sheer fried awesome Red Bull athlete machine action adventure for a quality example. [Thanks Gadge

Cracking event in pristine surroundings, special shout-out to reTroyspective for this clip, great composition and for putting this to the post-grunge Silversun Pickups, nice touch.

A couple of weeks ago I took out the ol’ faithful for a casual skate-around in some deserted car park. It had been a while since I had whipped out my moves but after a few minutes of sketchiness, I was starting to express myself with some killer combos. I remember thinking “Sheesh, I should get someone to record this SHITake!” A classic example of my awesomeness would be: tic tac to straight to ollie to recover to straight. I even managed a slight nose manual, probably 3 to 5 seconds at least. Man it felt good to be dominating once again. I was then sent this fried piece of skating gold … Thoughts of ‘skating for a living’ put on hold. Phone calls to DVS shoes cut short. Thanks for killing a dream buddy. FiretrUCK me, this guy is unreal. Although, may I say I did not see one bit of tic tac action. I guess everyone has their limitations. Still, Maverick thumbs up for the effort Kilian. Rennton
