SoCal to NY, Thomas Dritsas handles every spot with ease for the newest Know Future video.
All types of terrain with the same effortless approach. Julian Restrepo takes on everything the Southern California streets have to offer for the newest Know Future video.
No contests, no deadlines, just a few spot pins, and a loose plan to skate them with the crew. Jimmy Wilkins, Shea Donavan and Archer Braun let us jump in their truck for a trip starting in the full pipe at Baldy and ending with a camp out on a vert ramp in the jungle. Turns out, no matter what you’re skating the plan remains, skate with your friends, good times will follow.
“I’ve known Walker since we were kids and have been lucky enough to see his journey in skating through the years. Whether it’s a big gap, a manny pad, or a quarter pipe, Walker attacks it with his effortless and ambidextrous approach to skating. Off the board, he’s one of the smartest and nicest guys you’ll ever meet. Big love Walker! ” – Nate Alton, Thunder Team Manager
Heavy sets, steep banks, and flowing lines. Matisse Banc brings speed and style to everything he skates for the newest Know Future video.
In this detailed installment of Setups, we get all the way down to the quarter-inch of hardware and the 100th decimal point on Dominick Walker’s skateboard gear. Dominick breaks down his preferred nose and tail shape, the new inverted kingpin style trucks he’s grinding, and the shoes you can catch him rocking while on and off his board.
“Dashawn is one of the most positive skaters I’ve ever met. Always smiling and skating with so much power and control. His energy shines on and off the board. Keep smiling, Dashawn, the world can always use more of it.” – Nate Alton, Thunder Team Manager.
Growing up in a small town in New Jersey, Ronnie Kessner was set to head to Chiropractic school when he decided to take the window skateboarding offered. Fast forward to now and he’s riding for Shane O’neill’s company, April, and working on his own album. A while back Thunder visited Ronnie to get a look into his process for making music and hear what he’s working on next.
“Davis looks so solid on a board, always keeping it clean with power and a seemingly ambidextrous bag of tricks. Davis continues to be a favorite of ours in the streets and in the van. We’re all hoping we can get back out soon. Stay Safe out there, everyone.” – Nate Alton, Thunder Team Manager.
“Skating with Dan is unreal. Beyond the obvious fact that he can’t see the spot, his dedication to get tricks no matter how easy or hard they come is truly something else. He just never gives up even when it gets too dark to film; he will just keep going until he gets it. Always a pleasure having him in the van with the crew! “ – Nate Alton, Thunder Team Manager.
“Hailing from the great Northwest Cody destroys transition with an unparalleled technical assault. Check out what one afternoon at the skatepark looks like and see for yourself.” – Nate Alton, Thunder Team Manager.
The best plan is no plan. Round up a crew, load the van, skate all day. A few months back, Tyson Peterson, Frankie Heck, and Christian Henry hit up the Firestone Ditch for a session and a day of shooting photos with Gabe Morford.
Sometimes ditch days are all you need. Here’s to hoping we can all get back to days like these soon. Stay safe out there.
