SMH: Terry Kennedy Potentially Facing Murder Charges



You’ve likely already heard that Terry Kennedy was arrested last week for allegedly assaulting Josiah Kassahun at a hotel outside of Chicago. News broke today that the 23-year-old died from his injuries. Now, Kennedy may be facing murder charges as well. There’s no additional information on what led to this tragedy. But a Gofundme has been set up in support of Kassahun’s family.

On Tuesday July 27th, 2021 Josiah Kassahun was brutally attacked by by professional skateboarder Terry Kennedy. He recently passed away from those injuries. This GoFundMe was created to help with expenses related to hospitalization, funeral costs, and future memorials.

Josiah was and will always be remembered as the perfect friend to everyone who had the good fortune of meeting him. He was loved and had much love to give and he will be dearly missed by an infinite number of people. In these trying times we ask that you help by donating to ease financial burden the family is experiencing as well as to create a memorial for him. All proceeds from this GoFundMe will go directly to the family.

Kennedy is currently being held on $100,000 bail.

Watch What Went Down in the Red Bull Lisbon Conquest



See the action unfolds in the Red Bull Lisbon Conquest as Madars Apse shows us what went down in the three-day event.

Red Bull Lisbon Conquest is the second time Red Bull organized such an affair after the successful Red Bull Paris Conquest last year.

The events aim to pay homage to the skate culture of great cities around the world featuring a contest held in replicas of some of the host city’s most iconic skate spots. The competition for this year was held in Praça do Comércio, Lisbon.

Unlike other skate contests, Red Bull Conquest has a head-to-head eliminator format. The judges wouldn’t give individual scores to the competitors but would determine who would progress to the next round.

Bruno Senra and Roos Zwetsloot won Red Bull Lisbon Conquest.

Aside from the contest, the Red Bull Conquest also features side events such as street sessions and local skate shop visits.

In this latest “True Grit” video by Santa Cruz Skateboards, Tom Asta revealed that he never planned on becoming a pro but just enjoyed skating as a teen. He turned out to be one of the best pro skaters we know today.

He talked about growing up in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, and also showed his favorite skate spots in his hometown. Town mates Chris Cole and Ian Berry, and other pro skaters spoke about how they met Tom and how they have seen him develop into the skater that he is today.

The “True Grit” video series attempts to get an in-depth look into how skaters came to where they are now by visiting them in their hometowns and interviewing the people around them.

Latest Nocturnup Video Now Playing



“Nocturnup: Seoul” is now playing on the Freeskatemag channel. This is the latest installment of the video series filmed by Nick Richards.

Filmed entirely at night, the video features Chris Colborn, Jasper Dohrs, Daryl Dominguez, Marquise Henry, Davide Holzknecht, and Tom Delion.

Daryl Dominguez thought of creating the series after visiting Bangkok in 2016. He found that it was too hot and crowded during the day so he thought the best time to skate and film videos would be at night. He then talked to filmmaker Richards about the idea and Nocturnup was born.

So far, Richards, Dominguez, and the rest of the crew have visited Bangkok, Hongkong, Taipei, and Seoul for the video series and plan to go to more cities soon.
