Some of the SHM crew is chilling at Jackson Shaperia’s place in Australia. Riders from all over are in Sydney chilling the week before Newtons. Here is some footage from the groms in Adelaide, Australia. They said if we post it up, they’ll clean the kitchen later.
SkateHouseMedia presents Part 2 of the 2012 Compilation. Special thanks to the SHM Scene Supporters and the skate community for making this project possible.
It’s long overdue but here is Part 1 of the Best of 2011. We promise you wouldn’t have to wait as long for 2012 to come out.
Menlo Park 2012 was a blast. In its third year running the contest went off flawlessly. Menlo features 2 days of freeriding on a closed hill, a Friday night skate park jam, and a camp site to host all the skaters complete with music, food, and drink. Skaters from up and down the west coast came out to shred some thane and have a good time. Huge thanks to David Hiltbrand and the Sunset Sliders form making it happen year after year.
Big thanks to Muir Skate for providing us to the event.
On their way up to Maryhill, WA the Westcoastin girls stopped by San Fransicso to hang out with the Sliders and take some runs in Berkeley.
The whole skatehouse was in New York City last weekend for the Broadway Bomb.
Broadway Bomb is basically the sickest push race there is. The 8-mile course runs along Broadway from the gates of Columbia University at 116th street all the way down to the bull statue on Wall Street. The road is not closed and there’s lots of automobile and pedestrian traffic. For the most part, it’s flat or slightly downhill.
There are three rules. First, you have to stay on Broadway as much as possible. Second, no skitching. Third, if the cops stop you, you must tell them that you’re just out for a skate with your friends.
The race is supposed to start at noon; but there’s never an official start whistle or anything like that. Everyone just starts running up 116th street and going for it. I’ve been going since 2007 and it’s always total chaos. This year was particularly out of control: with a over a thousand people trying to kick off at once, the road was so crowded that people kept falling over each other.
NYC is also a hot spot for hard-wheel sliding; so Brian Dencklau and Steve Kong organized a hard-wheels-only slide jam on the day after the Broadway Bomb. Apparently there was a soft-wheel event at 7am the same day; but I don’t know who thought anyone would show up to a slide jam at seven in the goddamn morning.
Hard-wheel is tricky. It’s easy to slip out and land on your ass, so you have to be pretty upright on the wheels.
At the same time, you don’t want to grip up and go flying forward. Your balance has to be on point.
Anthony Flis brings back the Sergio Layback. These certainly look cool, but they’re hell on your shoulders.
The old standard pendulum.
Adam Auger busts a noseblunt for Cliff Coleman and the assembled skate-paparazzi. Check the GoPro on Cliff’s head.
Hard wheels? Check. Indy trucks? Check. Home-made slide gloves with cutting board? Check. Bringing 2007 1985 back with a classy pendy.
I skated with Jonathan Brown-Tea the day I got slide gloves. Check the technique.
I like nollies. Check the vintage Earthwing shirt in the foreground: “lighter, stronger, stiffer, thinner, more expensive, but worth it.”
John Kreutter came out of nowhere and got really good at both hard and soft wheel sliding. Damn kids.
Super fresh style.
I don’t know who won; but I can’t wait for next year. Special thanks to the event sponsors–there are too many to list here.
“Fernando Yuppie Visit california in the summer and come to NorCal for skate ever day with Liam Morgan Aaron G AFB Cliff Coleman Jake Tomio Skate in berkeley Oakland San Francisco.”

“Cliff Coleman Father Of Downhill Slide Talk&skate Cliff is the legend!!! check out the Interview Film in Berkeley California By Fernando Yuppie. Big Thanks Cliff Check out Part Too skate…soon”
“Cliff Coleman, the god father of slide, takes a moment to introduce and skate with Fernando Yuppie and Liam Morgan in the Bay Area. Cliff calls them “Cliff Slider All Stars”, we call them GRN TM. Either way this clip is action packed. Much respect Cliff! We can’t wait to stop by, film again and hang out at the corner … peace and sk8 4 life!”
If you’ve ever done a Coleman slide then you should know about Cliff. In his 6 decades of skateboarding, Cliff Coleman has constantly helped the downhill skateboard community grow. Outside of being a slide originator, he is world champion Yo-Yo Master, and a stand up guy always will to help you grow as a skater and person. Thanks Cliff for all the inspiration!
