  10. Orangatang Balut - East Coast Style. Check out homies Norman Plante and Ben DeSnyder going big on the new Orangatang Baluts and loving every minute of it. Look out of Norm’s gigantic toesides and switch toeside checks like a bau5. Norm and Ben are loving the wheels - check out Norm’s feedback (from YT):

    Euphorethane is AMAZING, much more durable than regular Otang thane, but still super buttery and predictable. The combination of the wheels being super light and the enhanced durability of Euphorethane seems to make them want to keep spinning fast during long slides. the faster the wheels spinning, the more even the wear. With proper technique, these things will stay super round right down to the core (getting there not being a very quick process either).” -Norm

    P.S they are mad fast too”

     
     

  11. SkateTheEast: “Mike Girard Brings Some East Coast Swagger to Europe”

    Stoked on the article published by SkateTheEast on my “Ambassador Abroad” video mini-series! Check out the article here: http://www.skatetheeast.net/2012/01/video-mike-girard-brings-some-east-coast-swagger-to-europe/. Excerpt: 

    At this point I don’t think it’s a secret that we like what Mike Girard does on a skateboard and the videos he produces. He’s almost constantly producing new edits showcasing him and friends (such as Norman Plante, Eric Roth, and Graham Feddersen) throwing down hard and repping Central MA like no one else. Mike traveled abroad to study in Dijon, France for the spring of his junior year at Colgate University where it appears that while French may have been his major concentration while abroad, longboarding was a solid minor. Released in two parts Mike edited more than 15 minutes of footage showcasing some awesome and mouthwatering downhill runs, juicy freeride and downhill freeride spots and some great freestyle moves. Part II isn’t just freestyle, or dancing, however, as Mike also got some great shots ditch skating in what looks to be one of the more spots I’ve ever seen.

    While Spain might be getting most of the attention when it comes to longboarding in Europe, Girard did a great job showing that France has some rising stars and unreal runs.

    Stoked! Thanks for the kind words!!!
