The Inertia

Every now and again, we have to give props to Thrasher, the official voice of skating. From covering rebel-rousing on the streets of Long Beach to finding little-known talents painting the side streets of New York City, the team at skating’s first pub gets it done. Take this piece for example. Yes, it may have been in conjunction with Tony Hawk’s Birdhouse, but Brazilian Felipe Nunes is pretty damn inspiring. He lost both his legs after an accident while playing around a moving train as a child. “He’s gnarly beyond his challenges,” says Hawk. “He’s a gnarly skater.” Check out the crazy style this guy has developed.


Only the best. We promise.
