Darrell Stanton is in the running for this year’s X Games Real Street video contest. Check out his footage HERE and throw a few votes his way! Once you see his nollie backside 180 over the rail and into the bank, at one of the harshest spots around, you’ll have no choice.
On International Go Skateboarding Day, the winners of the MAKE IT COUNT contest series were treated to a sesh at The Berrics. Also in attendance were Chad Tim Tim, Darrell Stanton, Mark Appleyard, Nyjah Huston and Nick Garcia. The level of skateboarding that went down is mind-blowing, especially when you consider the schedule of the winners’ previous week. If they weren’t in a plane or van, they were skating a contest, shredding a park or hiking a mountain.
Congratulations and thanks to all of the winners. Extra special thanks and congratulations to Julian Christianson. His blend of ability and humility are an inspiration.
