The jack-of-all-trades jumps in front of the camera for hi-fi pool action in his “5 FOR 5” edit. Chris Gregson extends lanky limbs in a frenzy of backyard pool action. No bikinis or umbrellas at these pools, but plenty of walls, steep and deep for pool-coping flavor. Gregson not only threw down the five tricks above, but also filmed Alex Sorgente’s part from last week — skills on both sides of the lens. Dive into the edit for the second drop of “5 FOR 5.”
There’s a certain sense of trepidation when being part of skate trips that involve things like jungle skatespots and skating central reservations in rivers of traffic, mopeds, monkeys and more. But when you hand select a crew with rippers such as Sk8 Mafia’s Jimmy Cao, Australian bossmen Alex Lawton and Dennis Durrant, Czech champ Maxim Habanec and English ATV Daryl Dominguez… there’s no shortage of epic adventure to be had. Follow the crew as they travel from South to north Vietnam in search of misadventure and new street spots ripe for shredding.
Simon Stricker is a real talent, but so humble and low-key that the Swiss could be described as an under-the-radar ruler.

Tristan Koelewijn is one of the next wave of breakout talents from the Netherlands, a country which already has a pretty amazing history of producing crazy skateboard talents.
