Street Canoe pal Peter Wiese’s rad little video series called Sundays has reached its 50th episode and it’s just as rad as all of the others. I could try and write something cool about it, but I think Pete says it best…
“Not going to lie, for the 50th episode I envisioned an epic road trip filled with some special guests. Well, life got in the way this summer and skateboarding took a backseat. Instead of a Sundays episode coming out every other week, I was lucky to get one out a month…and I’m fine with that.
This episode wasn’t even supposed to happen. When I talked to my dad while he was in the hospital, he told me, “Go skateboarding on Sunday. Don’t come here (the hospital) and don’t hang out with your family.” He actually told me not to hang out with my family…pretty amazing. Last second calls were made, and somehow the crew decided to go skate some old spots in the south suburbs of Chicago (Homewood).
It always seems like the last second sessions are the best ones. Some shredding went down and before we knew it, we skated for eight hours.
This may not have been a road trip or anything like that, but it was an epic session with some great friends. For those eight hours, life took a backseat and skateboarding was the the only thing that mattered. About a week or so later, my father passed away. It was a three year battle and my dad, even at he weakest, still made sure I was having a good time. That’s just the way he was, he never wanted anyone to make a big deal about him.
Thanks for making me go skateboarding Dad. I miss you already. And yes, I still push goofy footed.”
Street canoe pal Jared Sherbert brings us all up to speed with what Brendan Carroll has been up to lately.

I’m really stoked to bring to Street Canoe this interview with longtime friend Roger Krebs. Roger was always the little kid skating with us older guys, but it’s obvious he’s not so little anymore. Roger kills it and from the looks of it he has no plans of slowing down. Roger is one of Ohio’s favorite skateboarding sons. Enjoy the interview here.
Politic team riders Dave Caddo, Jason Spivey, Taylor Nawrocki, Curtis Rapp, Danny Renaud welcome Derm to the team with this video project.

Please make sure to check out the first ever promo video from Columbus, Ohio’s Smelly Curb. Smelly Curb started out as a ‘zine back in 1987 fueled by art, skateboarding, punk rock and rebellion. 27 years later they have a rad team of skaters, boards and things to wear. So enjoy their first video offering called Lost in the Feed.
I love it when skateboarders pull together to create something for the greater good of skateboarding and this Mike Lent interview is proof of that. First and foremost the interview wouldn’t have happened without Mike and his passion and dedication to skateboarding. Second, if not for Street Canoe pal and photographer extraordinaire, Frank Mare, you would have nothing to look at and you wouldn’t be able to see how rad Mike is at skateboarding. And last but not least I would like to thank everyone at the Northern Co. for their help with getting the edit together and everything else that they do for skateboarding. Check out what they are all about here if you don’t know already. Enjoy the interview and now go and create your own skateboard paradise.
