Transworld Skateboarding Checks Out Brandon Nguyen
Quick feet and technical head-scratchers at spots seem the hallmark qualities of San Jose, California’s skateboarding scene, underlined and dotted in any one of Mark Suciu’s recent parts. Carrying the torch for the city is Brandon Nguyen, who grasshopped his way onto Transworld‘s radar for a video version of its “Check Out” segment. The surprising wallie to grind around the minute mark seems just short of impossible, while Nguyen also reminds viewers that the backside 360 and nose-popped bigspins are far from obsolete.

Having performed “Dark Horse” with collaborator Juicy J at the GRAMMY Awards and the BRIT Awards, Katy Perry has released the official music video for the hit single.
