Full Loophole!

This is not our first time praising it, or those guys' output in general but finally, today, we're here: the VX full-length of the year, by Zach Chamberlin for Loophole Wheels: "NEW DOORS HAVE OPENED" is up in its entirety for everyone to stream on the sextuple V, and it's packed with unique spots, styles somehow flexible enough for those, funky maneuvers, San Francisco vibes and postmodern lines. Of course, the production itself is impeccable, truly honoring the legacy of the best, most classic S.F. videos all the while cultivating an originality of its own - because Zach. If this doesn't get you hyped for your next session or maybe twelve, then it's surely because you're missing the zines, wheels and various other goodies meant to accompany such a great piece of work, which you can check out here.

Lottery x Loophole

Quite the literal winning combo here today as we're talking an audiovisual collab between Lottery, Logan Matthews' enterprise (of which we haven't shied away from featuring the other video productions before)and all-star, S.F.-based wheel company Loophole (ran by the best and also regularly featured on LIVE). "DAY LATE, DOLLAR SHORT" is nothing, well, short of a five-minute VX-1000 fairy tale comprising a world of downhills and downtown spots around the City, often with some roughness to boot, always conquered with expertise. The blues you will left with is bound to be the one of pandemic-free sessions, that's for sure...  Yet, motivation-wise, everybody is making bank!

Lottery alert!

The works of Logan Matthews, LIVE has introduced you to them before - not long ago, actually - namely with "LUCK OF THE DRAW", one very tasteful San Francisco edit demonstrating Logan's smooth VX-1000 skills. Well now, barely a few weeks later, he's still busy with - and on - Lottery and the soberly entitled "LOTTERY. MIA", another new video production, directly bears witness to just that, this time consisting in footage stacked in Miami, Florida. The style remains just as impeccable on either side of the lens, and the line-up here consists in Josh Narvaez, Hal ScarboroughMikey HigueraBrian Powderly, Eric Torres and Marcus Levi, with Mikey Bueso occasionally helping with filming duties. This new clip packs one groovy punch, the vibe is just as refined to the beat of both some damn good music and the staccato of the urethane wisely embracing the urban textures - and whoever doesn't feel like instantly getting on their board upon its viewing has to be a lost cause of sorts!

Luck Of The Draw

In addition to managing LotteryLogan Matthews is a good friend of Zach Chamberlin's, which can be felt as far as in their common passion for the collection of efficient, impactful VX-1000 footage amidst a San Francisco notorious for its ups, but mostly for its downs - apparently, very much to the joy of the likes of Chris AthansBen Gore or Sean Greene, who love using this type of sloped terrain to their advantage...

All things considered, "LUCK OF THE DRAW" will definitely hit you with a taste of what a year twenty twenty version of "HILL STREET BLUES" could look like with its impeccable production, an author who's bound to instantly become one of your favorite filmers, and an overall inclination for good taste be it as far as spots, tricks, presentation and even the soundtrack are concerned, directly relying on the strengths of the most classic S.F. videos, refreshed with up-to-date actors and approaches!

For more on the personal activity of most of the stuntmen involved here, in this wheel of fortune falling downhill in the best possible way that's "LUCK OF THE DRAW", may LIVE send you back to Loophole - Zach, Ryan and Jesse Narvaez's company of urethane-hard and silk-soft goods, all screen-printed on location in the purest D.I.Y. tradition. Although, one might argue - who needs a push in a realm of hills, right?

Right?...

Scum of the hills

The guys from Scumco and Sons came out of the East Coast to enjoy a trip to San Francisco. They take the opportunity to remind us that there are many ways to skate SF beyond what we usually see. From butchering huge sets of stairs, or engaged wallrides, to tech grinds and manuals in addition to the famous hill bombs, everything goes!
