#WeTheMidwest Wednesdays: 5/25/16

It's Wednesday, and that means we're thumbing our way through the 'gram for some clips to feature in #WeTheMidwest Wednesday. Don't forget to tag your Insta clips with #WeTheMidwest, and you just might catch them up here on the site! Ok, enough talking. Let's get gnarly.

We're kicking things off with Nick Vanderwielen, who we featured last week, but then he went all Daewon on this ledge, and I mean, come on guys. Just take a look at these clips and tell me this isn't feature-worthy. Way to get after it, Nick!

We have another clip from Asher Covillion for this week as well. Two reasons: 1) the meaty slam he took at the beginning of this, and 2) the ollie over / donation to the homeless man's sign. It's all in good fun, and that's the spirit of skateboarding. 

Now let's take things to Indiana, where longboarders aside, Aaron Christopher handles his business with a couple quick park clips. Check out some of these bangers, and no, we don't mean the rock n' roll to disaster by longboard guy.

Meanwhile, up at Familia's Headquarters in the Twin Cities, Tabari Cook is just out here assaulting benches. He makes these five clips look way too easy. Good thing they turned that kid pro.

And finally, we take it to Milwaukee, where Owen Liban handled his business at Estabrook Park. Watching Owen fly over the bumps is like watching Spud Webb dunk; you don't really know how it's physically possible, but it's majestic to watch him fly through the air like that. Way to get those clips, Owen!

#WeTheMidwest Wednesdays: 5/18/16

It's Wednesday, and that means we're making our way around the 'gram to find some of the best or most fun clips we can find to present to you in #WeTheMidwest Wednesdays. Don't forget, you can tag your clips with #WeTheMidwest, we'll check them out, and our favorites make the website every week. Without further ado, let's get into it!

Nick Vanderwielen kicks off both #WeTheMidwest Wednesdays and his part in the Sconnie Boys  video with this crazy line. Whatever that wizardry in the middle of his line was, we had to watch it a few times just for that trick alone. Unreal.

Sometimes, it's all about fun. That's what skateboarding should be about, anyway. Tony Leon took advantage of the full minute that Instagram allows for videos to show us how the session goes down. Complete with the homies goofing around, this is what skateboarding is about.

We're really hyped on Dilemma Skateboards lately. Their team rider, Xavier King, is hyped on handrails and ledges. We hope you get hyped on all of it. Check out this quick five trick fix.

Why go down stairs, however, when you can go up them? Asher Covillion does just that. With a nollie heel in the middle. Get your hops up, kids.

And finally, there's nothing better than being able to show up the naysayers. Watch Davidmichael Diedrick make Colin Cargiulo eat his words at Cream City with this clean cab flip.
