Here’s the final edit of what we managed to get accomplished in a week. Some of the stuff has been included in the dailies, but a handful of it was saved for this final montage. Features Ishod Wair, Theotis Beasley, Daniel Lebron, Paul Rodriguez, Shane O’Neill, and Youness Amrani. Thanks to everyone at Nike SB that made it happen, it was a real fun week, and a welcome change of pace for a website composed of individuals that typically do not skate or film at any time before 9 P.M. throughout the summer. Taking people who have never been to New York around to spots in this city is always a challenge, and a fun experience at the same time, particularly if you’re dealing with the added bonus of them all being extremely talented. Altogether, a lot of ground was covered in a week, especially taking into account the rain and heat. Everyone killed it, even when it seemed like the weather and spot factors added up against us, and hopefully everyone is psyched on what we came up with.
(We’re working on a traditional “End of Summer” clip with all of the usual suspects, featuring camo pants, three up three down footage, and maybe some cameos.)
Thanks to Zach Malfa-Kowalski for the excellent photographs throughout the week. And the biggest thanks of all goes to Radric Davis for shutting down the Bowery last night. Burr!
