CLIP OF THE WEEK: Benji Brand, Namibia
If I added up all the tube time I’ve ever watched—just watched, mind you, not actually lived in real life—it still wouldn’t equal the ridiculous length of this bit of video game-level tuberiding. Maybe the clip of the year.
Alejandro Moreda, Refreshé
Puerto Rico’s Alejandro Moreda is well-rounded. Airs, turns, tuberides, you name it. Here he is, at home and abroad, doing everything but walking the nose.
Nick Rozsa, Homegrown
Yes, more Nick Rozsa please. Not only is the man one of California’s finest and most stylish regularfoots, but he can also point out dolphins with the best of ‘em.
Lunchtime Sessions with Karl Attkins
