New York skateboarding is widely preceded by its reputation for a combination of raw power and speed, with its products – Keith Hufnagel, Gino Iannucci amongst them – shining examples of this approach. While this style is sometimes considered exclusive to the lower Hudson bays, it seems as if it is being perpetuated as far north as Buffalo. Exhibit A: Jake Donnelly. The undersung rookie pro submits a late contender for its place on year-end ‘best part’ roundups with “Buffalo’s Finest,” offered courtesy of Thrasher Magazine, adidas Skateboarding and longtime board sponsor Real Skateboards. Here we find Donnelly burning the New York candle strong, blasting beefy kickflips and treacherous smith grinds with jaw-dropping precision. adidas Skateboarding also toasts to Donnelly with his very own colorway of the Seeley silhouette. Enjoy this exceptional part above, then head over to adidas’s website to peruse the offering.
