Geoff Phillip came through as the editor for the latest SLC blade video and what he gave us was 16 minutes of non stop all killer no filler blading from all of us here in SLC. Filmed by all the homies I can honestly tell you that everyone is excited about this release and is already working on an HD project to come in the future. So make sure to just watch and enjoy some blading here in the beehive state.
All filmed in two days.
Lately the Ogden scene hasn’t been getting the attention it deserves. To be honest there pretty much is no scene there anymore now that most of the locals either quit or moved to Salt Lake. Luckily one dude is holding it down right now and even though he mostly does solo sessions he isn’t letting that discourage him from busting some great tricks all while giving Ogden a fresh take on blading. I sure hope Alex comes and skates with us more often here in SLC but honestly judging from the clips he has in this section it looks like maybe we need to go up there more often. This section was filmed and edited by Danial Larsen.
Today we are taking a stroll down memory lane and remembering the beastly section from Roger Emmer’s video “Espy” At this point in time Matt Moya was already making a name for himself, having numerous clips in multiple videos at the time of this release and picking up various skate sponsors. But a whole lot of people’s first real glimpse into the madness of Matt Moya’s skating was this video. Growing up in St.George I always heard about how good this guy was and how he was even better in person. I always considered myself a fan of his skating but it took this video for me to realize he was the real deal. Skating classic spots such as “cursed rails” and the very favorite “state street rails” he proved that all these spots were basically training grounds for him and watching this section I think you will see just how much work he put into this part. Also the ender 540 gap he did at the U is still incredible to this day. Give it a watch and you will see how hard this section goes.
It seems as though this week was a special one, mainly because we get to see two very awesome blade sections from two of the best dudes in SLC.
The first one is Nicholas Swans part from Idaho native Erik Bill Snake River Special 3. This section has it all, grinds, jumps, spins, and everything in between. Will this be the last we ever see of Nick Swan actually grinding stuff? We will just have to wait and see. You can purchase the whole video here if you would like. https://sellfy.com/p/74Mt/
The next section is actually a re-upload from Alex Bass who ended up losing all of this content from Vimeo. Fortunately vimeo saw how bad ass this section was and decided to give him props on his skating. Actually, that didn’t happen but I’m guessing Alex is just hoping for better luck this time. Either way we are glad he decided to put this epic part up again.
