Great skateboarding. Great Canadian skateboarding to be more precise. Sponsored in part by our friends at WeSC, Elephant Direct is the latest title from Jeremy Elkin and Jason Auger. Starring: Russ Milligan, Bradley Sheppard, Seb Labbe, Torey Goodall, Andrew McGraw, Justin Gastelum, Kevin Lowry, Pat O’Rourke, Mike Fyfe, and Marc Tison. Some of these names are more familiar than other but rest assured, all solid dudes. Clocking in at just over 20 minutes, it’s jam-packed full of skate goodness. The footage of the “Big O” in Montreal is amazing! Barry Walsh and Marc Tison are awesome. And Justin Gastelum? Who’s he? Just watch.

The UK and Canada’s Atlantic Provinces are pretty similar when it comes to skating. Rough, grimey spots.Not the greatest weather either(Corner Brook aside, we’ve got pretty sick weather here most of the time no matter what anybody says). You can see it from the footage in videos and the photos in mags, they’ve got that rough, weathered ground that we’ve become accustomed to. Just takes an extra push or two. Here’s some inspiration for you on this not so sunny of a day.

Here’s a few of the Sector 9 longboard completes we received this week. I’ve got a feeling with all the requests we’ve been having and the dry streets these won’t last long.

Here’s a clip from the Tiger Distribution and WeSC Canada East Coast tour a few weeks back. Skaters/WeActivists include Josh Clark, Alex Gavin, Mike Fyfe, Kevin Lowery, Andrew McGraw, and Tony Manfre. From the looks of the video some great skating went down including the Stacked contest which the guys from WeSC snagged 1st Place. It’s pretty cool to see these guys promoting the East Coast scene, maybe next time they’ll make it to Newfoundland. Video from Brian Shannon .
