Skate Video of the Week: Traffic Skateboards’ “Traffic Patterns”

On the Lord’s day, #OnTheGrind calls out a new skate edit that slapped us out of our boredom during the work week and reminded us why we were born to roll, and we share it with you. 

The spirit of East Coast street skating jumps gets off to an amazing start in 2014 as Traffic Skateboards drop their latest edit on the unsuspecting masses. Led by OG Philly general Ricky Oyola, the entire Traffic team and friends make an appearance and shred their way through some, mostly night time, action. While the video won’t knock any visually-desensitized heads out of their seat, it’s a testament to where things are in skateboarding. Also, the music’s great (Cheney Lane’s Nostalgia 77 if anyone’s asking), the intro is right, and the vibe is straight killer.

With the rumor that Philadelphia’s infamous Love Park may be on the verge of extinction, and an industry that continues to fluctuate and accelerate at the speed of cable Internet, it’s nice to just see some raw shit. This is a return to the classic style with sprinkles of 2014 progression and attitude – a beautiful marriage for those really paying attention. Shout outs to Theories of Atlantis and Ricky for continuously reppin’ that True East and uniting the sea board all the way from Boston to Miami.
