Looks like Wub Wheels is officially ready for their spring release. The party featuring a performance by Lil Lurka will be March 18th. There will be free Stella Artois and then a after party on Hamilton St in Old Town Saginaw. All Spring Apparel is extremely limited so come by and get laced up. This isn't an event you want to miss if you live in the 20 mile radius!
It's new year, new team member for Michigan's Wub Wheels. The team added local Peter Morris to their evolving squad, and Peter already returned the favor by delivering a minute and a half of footage. The intro part was shot in January on the wet streets, with plenty of truck bashing, fast flip tricks, and a kickflip to no comply that will leave you questioning the laws of physics. Congratulations to Peter for getting in with a new sponsor! Check out his welcome part below:
Some of the world's best skateboarders descended on the Midwest this week, as Red Bull and Ryan Sheckler brought back the second annual Hart Lines contest in Detroit. The event modifies the existing skate spot in Hart Plaza, incorporating the ledges and stair set with ramps, rails, and a steep wallride. The contest challenges some of the elite talent, as it takes the existing street setup and turns it into a fast downhill run. In the end only, one skater would walk away with a cool $35,000 for throwing down in the D, and the competition was fast and fierce all weekend. Axel Cruysberghs and Curren Caples came close, but in the end, nobody could touch Nyjah Huston, who walked away with the win in his first appearance at Hart Lines.
