MWLA introduces the NESC Crew

(Words/Video Edit: Kent Fletcher)

NESC’s Longboard||Omaha edit features riders Ian Freeman, Erik Fahner, Blake Phillips and Kent Fletcher.  We shot this video on iconic roads in the Omaha area and also filmed extensively at Hummel Park.  This footage gives a sneak peak at what to expect from some of the younger locals here in town for Hummel Havoc 2014.  Look for more content from this Omaha crew in the near future.

ABS Write-Up from Davis City Downhill

IMG_2748

Action Board Sports is one of THE premiere skate shops in the Midwest (and on the entire internet).  If you have yet to visit their online website, check it out!  Michigan shredder Peter Croce, who is a personal friend of mine, works in their storefront location.  So don’t forget to stop in and say what’s up if you are ever in the East Lansing area.

Their sponsored team of riders made it all the way down south to Oklahoma for the first ever Davis City Downhill earlier in March.  What helped get them there was their new TEAM VAN!  No crew is legit without their own way to travel in style.  Read their latest blog post for all the ups and downs of their journey to the Arbuckle Mountains.

Setup Sundays #1

We like the idea of showing off our own unique, tweaker setups just like the Venom Crew. This video marks the first installment of our MWLA “Setup Sundays.” Here is a look at me (Dan Kelly) riding my garage board at one of our favorite night spots in downtown Omaha. Shout out to Chicago Longboard Society OG’s Sergio Munoz and Justin Richter for getting this deck in my hands years ago.

Yager Bombz

Omaha local Jake Yager loves to skate everything.  We recently took advantage of a rather warm, but gloomy day to go out and get some good ole-fashioned (shaky) GoPro footage.  Here is the result of our afterschool session in Dundee’s smooth neighborhood hills and rough back alleys.  Next time, we promise he’ll wear a helmet (AND A RIGHT GLOVE).  Get out and film your friends every chance you get!  SKATE SAFE AND SKATE EVERYTHING!

Winter Longboard Escape by Alex Colorito

We first watched Original Longboards rider Alex Colorito skate at the 2013 Hummel Havoc.  There is only one word to describe his style when it comes to throwing down on standup slides – BIG.  Alex is a FAST, all-around rider who took to the mountains of Arizona this winter to pump out this most recent edit with Original’s Arbiter 36.  CHECK IT OUT!

Viewer Discretion Advised with Cody Womack

Our fellow Midwest shredder Cody Womack showing us how it’s done on his home turf.  For steeps like you see in this video, he sticks to Rojas Hybrids from Braden Boards.  Cody and his crew love traveling to gnarly hills around the Midwest and competing in races like they did last weekend at the 2014 Davis City Downhill.
