Pretty sick that people could fly to New York all the way from Denmark and still be down to session Three Up Three Down instead of hucking themselves down the Courthouse Drop or something more tourist-like.
There’s about ten seconds of Gino footage in this Nike Barcelona clip. (He also has an ad in the newest Antenna magazine, unfortunately one-upping the great Geo Moya.) There’s another similar crew clip with Omar Salazar shredding a lot of Barcelonian landmarks as well.
The ratio of lifestyle footage to skateboarding in Alex Carolino New York clip is horrible, but there are a few cool clips in there. Skating over trashcans off those high benches on Wall Street and South Street is getting real popular now, huh?

Spot Updates: 1. They replaced the clunky ground on the Maiden Lane C-Benches with even more clunky ground. 2. NYU put new knobs on the recently unknobbed frontside for regular/backside for goofy up ledge on Mercer and Third. If you just moved to New York and are beginning school at NYU this semester, you will be expected to remove all the knobs from this spot. 3. Budweiser 24 oz. cans are now available in 3 packs.
