This Week in Awesome – July 23, 2010

I know I neglected Twitter for the last 10 days, but I had to focus on another gig. For that I am sorry, however, that doesn’t mean I can’t pull together an AWESOME! post.

Yesterday at the Nike 6.0 BMX Open I was able to put together a couple of .gifs for everyone
Mike Spinner: Tailwhip on the quarter pipe
Zack Warden: 360 Bikeflip aka The Iron Lotus
Andy Buckworth: 900

Your friend and mine Sydney Goldberg pointed your attention to Killian Martin. Anytime I come across that video I can’t help but watch it again and again and again

May be a little old, but Awesome nonetheless. The indomitable Brian Beagle with a post about TRIPLE corks

Speaking of Winter Dew. We just announced the three stops for next season
December 16-19 Breckenrdige
January 20-23 Killington
February 10-13 Snowbasin
And did I mention the 22 ft halfpipe will be making it’s Winter Dew Tour debut?

There is nothing better that unintentional comedy (except Oreo Cookie Milkshakes, but just go with me for a second). This is a scene from Police Academy 4 featuring a young David Spade playing a rebel skateboarder. I love how sneers “This is skateboarding” which kicks off an epic 80s style montage (Ed. Note: MONTAGE)

Not just Parkour. Not just Dog Parkour. Japanese Dog Parkour. No joke.

Video of Tampa news reporter trying to get his George Costanza on and play frogger on a vert ramp. He fails and runs over a little guy

“Wheeeeeeee!” It is never too early to get your baby on a skateboard

Luke Parslow explains how to pull a Superman. He’s not scared to fly. He’s not that naive. He’s just trying to find. The better part of him. He’s more than a bird, he’s more than a plane, he’s more than a pretty face besides a train. It’s not easy to be Luke Parslow
/Five for Fighting

The .com has a great interview with back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back Dew Cup champion Jamie Bestwick

If you’ve always wondered what goes down in a conversation among pros, here’s a glimpse of one between wakeskaters Scotty Byerly and Brandon Thomas

The adventures of the giant skateboard at Woodward.

Jeffrey Schmid works a Simpson reference into a post about the late Carlsbad Gap. I am all for any and all Simpson’s references. It’s so hard to say good bye to yesterday.
