What’s happening digital peoples? I would assume you’re already aware of this, but Thrasher has posted up Jake Johnson and Jimmy Lannon’s Static IV parts live on their site to help bring Static to as many eyes as possible. And there’s one finally video part to come. Although I would much rather that most of you see these parts w/in the context of the full length video, I agreed to this because I know that the vast majority of skaters not only don’t know what Theories of Atlantis is, but probably have never even seen a Static video. I actually like being lesser known. I think it’s better to remain under the radar a little. You tend to appreciate things more when you discover them on your own.
It’s a great feeling when a friend has a turn of good fortune. But it’s especially satisfying when somebody who we’ve all been rooting for finally gets recognized after years of hard work. Kevin Coakley is one of those rare few that has fans and supporters spanning from the east coast and into the west. That’s why I think his finally turning pro for Traffic is having such strong reverberations around the world of underground skateboarding. Kevin’s debut pro boards just released from Traffic and Thrasher just released his brand new pro part online today. Check it out and get some inspiration for your weekend shred.
