Nike Skateboarding’s first installment in their 2011-announced video-a-year trilogy, Volume 1, also showcased a wide range of terrain and skate styles from Youness Amrani’s mannys into back Smiths on handrails and Wieger’s mind-numbing heelflip combos to the aforementioned ATV assault butchery from Grant Taylor. Add the Jason Hernandez-filmed and -edited production quality, and you’ve got a clear nominee for best video.
