#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.

This guy and I just having a grand old time having the park to ourselves 👬

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!

Tabari Cook turns Pro !!!

Remember that cat that was in the bag?  Well, Minnesota's own skateboard company "Send Help" (http://sendxhelp.com) turned Tabari Pro yesterday and we couldn't be more proud and happy for him.  Tabari Cook has been slaying every spot in Minnesota for years.  By popular belief, he's one of the nicest dudes on the planet.  This kid has a smile that will light up a room and tricks that will leave your jaw dropped. Congrats and much success!

 

If you have never seen Tabari skate, check out this stand out part in a video full of Minnesota's BEST.
