Strush Wheels

Strush x Klasse Wrecks

When our favorite japanese skate wheel makers over at Strush Wheels (whose former productions, including the legendary "COLLECTIVE IMPROVISATION", can be browsed here) team up with Hong Kong-based record label Klasse Wrecks for the span of a collab and the accompanying web edit, what you get is this boiling hot potato of razor sharp-cut VX-1000 clips that are bound to kick you in the retinas, as well as put you in a trance that might technically be set to last for barely three minutes, but the energy of which will outlive said duration time all the way into your next sessions for sure.

Collective Improvisation

We were just bringing it up the other day whilst sharing "N.Y.C. 2019", the newest Strush Wheels edit: "COLLECTIVE IMPROVISATION" is the first full-length video by the brand, which came out in 2008 and had been available exclusively on DVD since. Well as a matter of fact, Japanese skate media platform VHS Mag just put it up on YouTube in the whole glory of its entirety - like a chapter that had been eluding the Western history books for too long a time despite featuring incredible parts from Shinpei UenoLui Araki or Takahiro Morita amongst others, and all filmed between Osaka, Kobe and Tokyo - just like that. A mandatory viewing for sure - at least one of those crucial classes that if you skip it, then you'll for sure fail your tests!

Far East Coast

Strush Wheels is a Japanese wheel company with a great video legacy ("COLLECTIVE IMPROVISATION" and "CITYSCAPE" have to belong inside your DVD player at some point), and its very specific art direction as this new edit "N.Y.C. 2019" can confirm again. Shinya Nohara aka. PORI and Shinsuke Haruta aka. HAL are the two main heads here, visiting New York City and catching up with Connor Kammerer; as a result, the world gets this two-minute gem reflecting some impactful, stylish and original skateboarding, comparably to the lens of an impeccable VX-1000 and supervising by Ryuchi Tanaka, that's only willing to shine for you.

Still hungry for more Strush Wheels? Please feel free to revisit "ON THE RUN"!

And last but not least - one can still sign the online petition to preserve the legendary Brooklyn Banks skate spot in N.Y.C., here.

Jap' funk!

At Strush, they know how to pick them "jazzy", but this time up the tempo a notch, and you are in to witness one hell of a jam session! With Master Shinpei as a soloist, nonetheless!

Charles' tip: Lui Araki

"If one wonders how to get out of a nose slide in a legit way, he is the one you must turn to!" He isn't half bad at shove-its either, isn't he? You can find Cityscape, the Strush video via Magenta that just gave Lui a guest board, also.
