The Hoonigan, Ken Block, is back with another in his Gymkhana series and this time he is in industrial, run down New York. With more crazy stunts in his new, more powerful Ford Focus, including almost being t-boned by a train, this keeps the franchise going with style.
Hoonigan and Forza Horizon 3 proudly present Ken Block’s Gymkhana NINE: Raw Industrial Playground
The world’s most popular drift video series is back, with Ken Block pitting his Ford Fiesta rally car against the Dubai roads and a collection of super cars. As always the car does not dissapoint, even giving a Bugatti Veyron a run. The short teaser of his new Focus at the end has got me wanting to see the next edition very badly.
The title says it all. Skateboarding’s Iron Man tops himself by literally taking things to the next level. Danny Way sets out to break his own highest air record and after a punishing wipeout sets a new world record of 25.5ft.
This literally is truck porn, if you love the Ford F150 Raptor, snowboarding and Ken Block. Why freeze your butt off with a snowmobile when you can travel the backcountry in style with your F150 Raptor?
Ken Block takes his Ford F-150 RaptorTRAX out to the Baldface Lodge in Nelson, British Columbia to put it to the test as the ultimate backcountry snowboard expedition vehicle, along with fellow Monster Energy athletes Zak Hale and Ethan Deiss.
It’s all about the web show these days. If you are a well paid mega star from the US or other 1st World enclaves in Action Sports, you got to have a web show. The problem lies in the fact that most South African’s don’t have the budget to put one out, or at least to put a decent well shot offering out. So off the bat, I want to say well done Khule Ngubane and his sponsors. Just the effort of matching what the international trend is, shows really good foresight.
For those that don’t know, Khule is a rather larger than life character in the local SA Skate scene. He has started getting some serious results, has the chance to have a go at the international pros at KDC later in the year and possibly even take his show on the road to the holy grail of the USA. If that happens, this was a well timed exercise in marketing with an eye on growth. But, lets be real! There is no Scheckler budget here, so dont expect to see super slow motion “Red” footage and boys pimping in their Escalade with hunnies all round. Its more like 5 guys stuck in a Fiesta making jokes in Cape accents and waving R50 notes at girls. It’s real, the skating is good and its local.
So go have a watch and through numbers, help these guys improve their offering and get better. We need more local content!
I got to go down to the MX Nationals in Cape Town was pleasantly surprised to find a really solid crew racing at a well organised event. MX in SA has been languishing somewhat the last few years, but with this new series it seems things are back on the up. The most recent stop was Round 3 at teza, in Richards Bay. The track, built on a guy’s private farm for his son, is almost on the US scale, with massive jumps and a great mix of sand and dirt. The racing looked tight and fast, much like the promo girls! Check out the video and get down to a stop near you to see some proper , filthy MX…
Recently a good mate built his own incredible backyard bowl. His birthday was coming up and I was asked to put on a “Nitro Circus” style show for the event using the Bowl. So I rounded up a posse of skaters and Bmx guys and we put on quite the show. This footage is from the 3 days before the show as the skaters were preparing for the show and getting to grips with the #SecretBowl – no frills or pretty shots, just good old skating!
(Show footage coming soon…)

Wanna know why this guy is considered the best street skater in the world? It is very simple, just watch this video and have your eyes blown wide. No hordes of other skaters screaming in the background, no pimp daddy I am the boss man attitude, just rock solid and utterly amazing skating to a great old track! Nyjah Huston is the Boss!
Stoked to see projects like this happening! Wish some local magazines would do the same thing to be honest. This is a great part with some incredible street skating.
When DC’s Chris Ray was asked to be one of the 13 filmers to submit a part for TransWorld SKATEboarding’s latest film, The Cinematographer Project, Ray Ray naturally gravitated towards DC am Evan Smith. With Evan’s effortless style and unique approach to skating and Ray Ray’s mastery of the angles, editing and HD, this Evan part excerpted from the full length DVD is the perfect example of the magic that ensues when a great filmer and a great skater come together for one project.
