Instagram: Best of the Week

September 19-26

With literally bajillions of skate-related posts uploaded to our Instagram feeds each week, it can be hard to keep track of the good stuff. Thankfully for you, we've begun rounding up the best clips of the week and mashing them together into this article for your convenience. From your favourite pros to complete unknowns, from park heroes to street gods, from Jereme Rogers' latest rap battle to Daewon's latest quadruple flip blunt, you can find it all right here. 

Got a video you think we missed? Or do you have your own video you think we should check out? Use @boardworld to tag us on Instagram, or use #bwskate to tag your own videos or photos. We'll view them all, and if we think they're good enough to post, we'll post 'em. 

5. Daewon, Obviously (@daewon1song)

Let's be real — we'll probably have to ban Daewon from these lists pretty soon. He puts out magician-level footage on a near daily basis, and it's unfair to the other guys on the list who are all actually human. This time he belts out a couple of two-wheelers in classic Daewon style, turning sharp corners and dodging cones, and making it look way too easy. It's funny how most of his clips are self-filmed. Like, does he actually go out and do this shit on his own? Can we come skate with you, Daewon?

4. Daewon's Brother From Another Mother (@jasonparksucks)

 

A video posted by Jason Park! (@jasonparksucks) on

Jason Park has earned comparisons to Daewon since he burst onto the scene with 360 hardflips and handstand manuals, and truth be told, it's not hard to see why. They have eerily similar styles, similarly brain-melting trick selections and skill, and both are of Asian decent. Jason is currently touring Europe, and keeping with the current darkslide trend, decided to whip out his latest creation at this unbelievably rad DIY park. There's also some footage from Chris Chann that's snuck into this 15-second hammerfest. 

3. Chris Cole Gets Two Videos Because He's Chris Cole (@chriscobracole)

Christopher Cobra Cole is, in my opinion, the ultimate mix of old and new school. He's not afraid to bust out the odd sal flip, but he'll also throw down some sort of wacky never-before-seen trick on a ledge or handrail to keep it fresh. These two videos both take the number 3 spot, because Chris uploaded them seperately, just a few seconds apart, even though they could probably fit in the one clip. He did that because he's a neat and tidy guy, and there's nothing more neat and tidy than that 360 flip tailside he throws down at Biebel's park in the video above. Long live the cobra. 

2. This Guy We've Never Heard Of (@elliotts_extras)

Ever heard of Genesis Delagarza? We admittedly haven't, but I get the feeling everyone will know of him soon enough. Watch him throw down five absolutely stupidly ridiculous tricks at the Diamond Plaza in this video from filmer Elliott Vecchia. Yeah, you just watched some sort of backside back-foot pressure 360 kickflip lipslide 270 out, and it somehow looked easy. That's a trick straight from the book of Genesis... Delegarza. Remember the name. 

1. Chris Joslin Shuts Down Melbourne (@yblasz)

This might be the gnarliest trick to ever go down at the Melbourne Museum/IMAX spot. Chris Joslin has embarked on his own Tony Hawk's Underground 2-esque "World Destruction Tour", and he's officially eliminated Melbourne from the map with this absurd backside flip. Yep, this is the exact same trick that Cody McEntire attempted in Digital's Smoke and Mirrors movie a good 8 years ago, and he subsequently went down in folklore simply for attempting it. Chris Joslin stepped off a 15-hour flight, warmed up at Lincoln Square for 15 minutes, and threw down a history-making trick. Cheers to the kid who bootlegged this — we owe you one. 

Bonus: Shane O'Neill's Disappearing Act

 

A video posted by Shane Oneill (@shanejoneill) on

This one makes the list purely because it made us laugh out loud at how stupid it was. People might claim that Shane O'Neill is a robot, and we have some pretty decent evidence to support those claims, but he definitely posts some pretty funny clips from time to time. I for one welcome our giant man-eating Janoski overlords.
