Bear with us, YouTube embedding is being funky today, but you can still click on the images and peep the vids on the ‘Tube.
This weeks YouTubes are dedicated to my main man out in Paris, Mister Chasone who sent me a link to Kein Rodriguez' part in the newish Nozebone video and suggested that I do a skate shop video themed YouTube section. Skate shops are the life blood of skateboarding, please support your skater owned shops with your hard earned cash, they have your back way harder than mall chain stores and will put the money you give them back into making local videos or hooking up local kids instead of into the down payment on a red convertible sports car. Without further ado, kicking of with Chas' man Kevin Rodriguez:
How gnarly was this part when it came out?! How gnarly would this part still be if it came out in ten year’s time?! This has to be one of the all time greatest video parts on the planet, from Coliseum skate shop, the always-face-melting PJ Ladd:
RDS skate supply has grown into something way bigger than just a shop, but I'm putting this one in there because I'm backing Ryan Smith hard and I remember this period when he was coming up and every month he had something sick come out in a magazine somewhere. The description says it all: "Hard hitting Canadians."
FTC has dropped more memorable skate videos than any other shop; this is from their first video Finally filmed and edited by Aaron Meza, featuring some serious finesse from Mike Carroll.
Finishing off this week with two links from the same video, Dan Wolfe had such a massive influence on skateboarding with his sick filming and editing style and pinnacle East Coast videos, it seems only proper that he closes us out with a double whammy from back in the day. Have a good weekend and support skater owned shops:
