Keeping Up With Those Boys

The season most accommodating to skateboarding has come to an abrupt halt in the past week as the snow hit and hasn't stopped since it began. With the seasonal uphold comes some inevitable hard drive dump from those who behold the homies footage. Fritz Pfaff and Quentin Boyer came through last weekend with some fall footage edits to accompany Dominic Palarchio's Baby video. Between these two and Anthony Randazzo's Wig edit these feature the likings of shop riders such as Brennan Richman, Cooper Prezkop, Quentin Boyer, Alec Ash, and Dom. Feast your eyes on these for some inspiration as we recluse to indoor parks or the ski hill for the winter time.

In spirit of the recent disposal of his vx1000, Dominic Palarchio decided to dump some  local footage that we've been itching to view for a while now.

It's no surprise Cameron sees a lot of himself in Dominic. They both come from the same hometown of Brighton, Michigan.They both are a couple of wallflowers, who take a bit of work to get to know and are more...

King of The Ave 2014

Refuge puts on a skateboard contest every October that mimics Thrasher's King Of The Road. Teams are made of 5 skaters and 1 filmer (who can skate too) and the must film an edit of their exploits. There are challenges that teams can earn bonus points for completing. Budgets are smaller (or non-existent), so the only real limitation is that all the skateboarding must be filmed on Michigan Avenue which stretches from Detroit to the suburbs and beyond.People didn't have an official team this year, but we had skaters who are on our skate team as members in crews. The Team that had the most we have to offer was the Hot Boys / Good Do UP team. It was...
