The Weekly Ledge(r) – Episode #37


Skateboard culture is deeply rooted in this fine city of ours. Not only does Metro Vancouver produce some of the world’s finest wood-wheelers, it’s also a major migratory destination for skaters from all over Canada. The Weekly Ledge(r) exists to update you on skate-related news and happenings in our town. Know the ledge, it’s not just used for sitting…

Ryan Decenzo is once again making Vancouver proud, this time by getting a dozen bangers at Transworld‘s indoor park down in Cali. Ryan (alongside Colin McKay, Jordan Hoffart and 30 other notable pros) will also be taking part in the Etnies x Sheckler Foundation’s Skate For A Cause on May 14th in Lake Forest, CA. The event will benefit Autism Speaks.

Vancouver’s Most Evil will certainly shed that monicker with his latest deed; Deer Man Of Dark Woods is donating his Skull Skates board royalties to the BC SPCA’s Wild ARC animal rehabilitation program. In close-to-home news, the first stop of Street League Skateboarding happened last weekend in nearby Seattle; V.I.A.’s own Jef Choy (aka Jesse Oye) was in attendance and added his personal touch to this blog post featuring a highlight reel of the finals.

Color Magazine has posted a trailer for their upcoming webisodes featuring Sheldon Meleshinski, Corey Klim, Dustin Henry, Will Blakley and Magnus Hanson from C1RCA Canada navigating the highway system of Texas. Concrete just beefed up their online mag archives by adding the complete 1993 publishing season, and SBC Skateboard posted previews of their latest issue (which includes a feature interview with East Van’s Ian Twa). As for this week’s video ender, Spencer Hamilton takes it again, much like he did in Ledge(r) #33:
