#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.

#WeTheMidwest Wednesdays: 5/11/16

It's finally warming up in the Midwest, and that means it's time to get back to the streets. And... with that, we're bringing back #WeTheMidwest Wednesdays! Simply tag your best clips on Instagram with #WeTheMidwest, and we might feature it on the site. For now, though, here's some gems that we've come across on the 'gram so far:

To kick things off, the Dilemma Skateboards crew out of Fort Wayne, Indiana isn't playing around. Check out Xavier King, Dylan Fields, Bailey Doolin, Dillon Brown, and Austin Curry getting some serious hops:

Billy Teska also gets down at Oak Creek Skatepark, complete with a clean bigspin front board on the flatbar. Way to make this line look easy, BIlly!

Rashaad Wells is back out at the Grant Park Skate Plaza (which is basically Midwest skateboarding heaven) and is already stacking clips for the summer. Check out some bangers here, and a serious head smack.

Speaking of Chicago, our own Carter Oeflein hit The Windy City recently, and I mean, come on. Look at that clean lipslide. Here's a couple of loose clips for you:

And finally, even though it wasn't tagged with #WeTheMidwest, how can we just ignore this monster 50-50 from Cody Davis. Like... stop it. Kid's too damn good.
