Summer 2016 Skatepark Opening Hype

The Source skate team has been lighting summer 2016 on fire! With recent demos in Calgary at the Southwood skatepark grand opening and at the new skatepark in Vulcan, the squad is making the most of the great weather.

Last month the crew cruised to Vulcan, Alberta to help christen the town’s new skatepark. In attendance were: Tom Nelner, Sean Heather, Tom Mok, Dan Kneeshaw, Dylan Dillz, Branden Wren, Brett Krasman, and Caleb Banman.

A few hundred locals watched the team lay a beating on the park Dillz was up to his crazy tech stuff and Tom N was ultra-consistent. Dan cruised around with authority landing long grinds and burly noseblunts. The Vulcan folks were stoked on the demo and, of course, the product toss. We hope to go back for another demo there—the park is great!

We were invited by the Southwood Community Association to skate a demo at the grand opening of their new park. The park is so good! Everyone killed it, of course—Riley Boland did the “official” ribbon cutting. Check the footage below.

NIKE SB DEBUTS FIRST SKATE SHOE WITH NIKE FREE

Nike SB Free

The freedom and flexibility of the innovative Nike Free sole unlocks natural motion in skateboarding. For the first time, the freedom and flexibility of the innovative Nike Free sole meets Nike SB. The new Nike SB Free unlocks the foot and allows it to flex and move  naturally. By adapting Nike Free for the demands of skate, the Nike SB Free gives skaters the potential to expand their performance and imagination on the board.

Made to move in sync with every small action of the foot while skating, the Nike SB Free facilitates true natural motion across the range of athletic demands of the sport. Nike designers distilled the brand’s vast body of research and experience gained from using Nike Free technology in other sports to create a performance solution to meet the distinctive needs of skaters.

Wearing the Nike SB Free gives skaters the feeling that their feet are free and can spread with less constriction, which enables better board feel, grip and balance. The Nike SB Free also gives skaters an extremely flexible and uniquely close feeling of connection to their board. This ultimately delivers more control, more freedom and faster progression.

Nike designers constructed the Nike SB Free to make it fit the foot like a supportive glove. They also carefully considered the build and materials of the shoe to keep out anything not fundamentally necessary or critical to athletes’ performance.

The durable suede upper above the reinforced SB Free outsole includes zoned ventilation for breathability and all-day comfort. Click Here to Get a pair of Nike SB Free at sourceboards.com.
