Let Me Ride: Fall New York Montage

November 29th, 2012 | 8:43 am | Daily News | 7 Comments

Conceptually speaking, this is the best trick of 2012.

If you need some incentive to layer up and go skating despite plummeting temperatures, Taji Ameen just put together a sick fall clip for Acapulco Gold. Features Leo Gutman (forever one of the best low-key skaters in New York), Billy Rohan, and a grip of other people, including the kid above who, uh, dropped in off a basketball hoop. Every year, people complain about how the NBA All-Star Weekend’s basketball game progressively gets worse (everything has more or less already been done.) How about getting this dude involved? Skateboarding’s mad trendy right now. It’s a win-win. Paul George is even skating in Foamposites, what more do you want.

Be sure to also check out Taji’s weekly photo column over at Vice.

  • I used this song for my part in the first little homemade skate video I ever made, back in 94; I was of course dressed like Pepe. Plain white T’s and cut blue jeans w/ crooked backwards fitted. Clothing choices and the music supervision was completely devoid of irony back then. This clip of course has far better skating ;)
