Day Late and a dollar short in typical Metro fashion, Heres our Halloween Edition Will It Skate. Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees starts things off doing his best to slay shit, despite being handicapped with a plastic knife. Upon stepping on the knife board and seeing it flex to the ground, We knew it woulda been a much better idea to risk severed tendons and just go with the real steel butchers blade. Oh well, hindsights 20 20. Jason, Jaws and [...]Read More »
Will It Skate?
Knock Knock… Who’s There? Will It Skate Episode 6 Front Door Edition! Sorry for the long wait, we’re gonna go ahead and call this season 2 of WIS as we took such a long hiatus. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. Door was the overwhelming favorite and we were more than happy to oblige though we knew we’d be in for a struggle. No companies make 40″ trucks so we had to get creative with the layout, 2 up front, to help us get up the [...]Read More »
Electric Guitar Edition Of Will It Skate made possible through a generous donation by Cody Jensen and Clay Hoffman, Sorry bout your guitar dudes! Think its a toss up between this Fender Squier and the Apple keyboard for best object turned skateboard thus far. While the Mac keyboard felt like one of those 1970’s cruisers,the ol Axe here was more like an 80’s Complete. Wide, Heavy and built to crush anything in its path! If the wooden body [...]Read More »
The world needed one less No Skateboarding Sign anyway. After this session was over, that sign was bent, broken, and begging for its final destination, the scrap pile!!! This was the first object turned skateboard that actually got a small taste of the mean streets in the form of a 5 stair ollie, Juan took a beating on that one as the aluminum tail kept bending on impact, but in true Brute fashion, he’d already put the postage on and addressed it, so there [...]Read More »
Thankfully for us, the one we had was an old school Mac keyboard, really rigid plastic frame, only thing that made it a little strange was it only had concave on one side so you were always kinda riding on a wedge. Debated cutting the cord, but it was way more fun an deadly with it either in hand or dragging behind the setup, and the mousepad we kept just for extra style. This was the best object turned skateboard so far! skated a bit like one [...]Read More »
You’re supposed to drink beer and then become uncoordinated right? Well for this edition of Will It Skate, the opposite held true. two stone cold sober skateboarders attempt a few spine transfers on an 18 pack of Budweiser Board, and come up a dollar short like all those tail end o the party liquor store runs. We had to race against a rapidly getting soggier cardboard container, and in the end even wrapping it in griptape and duct taping all [...]Read More »
Ever look at an everyday object and wonder just how the heck it’d skate? …Me neither, but Metro wanted to do another show to try an entertain you and this is the best we could come up with. Chris Ratface Jatoft and Jason Ross try an turn a run of the mill patio brick from Home Depot into a full fledged skateboard! Try fitting both feet on an 8 inch surface area, then imagine it with some swiss bearings and Spitfire 54’s and you can probably guess [...]Read More »
