Clip of the week:

CHOMP ON THIS! featuring Jamie Thomas as Freddy Kruger!

there’s a few Atlanta spots in his part. One of our favorite videos of all time. If you’ve never seen the whole thing go find it! <- Chomp is a video where skate filmers and photographers competed to have the best skate parts with a few pro's mixed in as well. #CHOMPTHEWHOLEWORLD (rumors of CHOMP ON THIS! 2 being worked on are out there. I hope it's true)
