As I stated in an earlier blog post this week, Nike SB premiered their much anticipated Nothing But The Truth this week. (Their first skate movie. They did do a promo vid a few years back, On Tap, that was pretty rad but not a full length) I haven't seen NBTT yet so I'll reserve judgement. I will give you some links and comment on the creative team that Nike put together for this project, pretty impressive. Nothing But The Truth Trailer Segment from On Tap Hypebeast did a read more
AIR! Check out this preview to see these guys catching air!
Keith gets barreled super bad, hurts just watching it. Some really gnarly barrels, and the guys pull through most of them. Peep this preview!
Check out a very strong shore break and some bad falls. Quite a few good waves, floaters, cut-backs - good riding!
In this segment there's cool little barrels, some floaters, minimal on the airs... but really sick all-around riding, also some cool scenery.
Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Taylor Knox, Dean Morrison, Bruce Irons, Andy Irons. Check the huge barrels and airs. A good variety of style in this one, for sure. The names above say it all! Peep this preview.
Globe sets the tone for this banger of a competition called Global Assault. P.S. There's a 900 in here. Production Company: Whyte House Productions
Ronnie Creager does tech tricks like a backside 180 fakie manuel-to-180-out and a switchflip-to-boardslides, Nyjah Huston does a sick heelflip frontside boardslide and Chris Cole throws a backside 360 kickflip. Ryan Sheckler dominates the course with big ollie transfers, hardflips, noseblunts and a huge frontside kickflip from a quarter pipe over a gap to the bank. Exciting skating from all of these guys.

Ryan Sheckler does a long backside nosegrind and a kickflip backside lipslide, Rick McCrank does giant frontside flips, Mark Appleyard does smooth backside smithgrinds on rails and huge 360 flips, and Stefan Janoski does a big kickflip tailslide on a tall box.
