Just because video blogs slowed up in frequency and their filmer became a downtown #tastemaker, doesn’t mean that the Most Productive Crew™ relinquished the title they’ve held from Space Heater onward. “Rack” features all of Johnny Wilson’s A-roll footage since Sure dropped two months ago.
With New York Fashion Week one week away, “Rack” already goes in the direction of what will dominate skateboard runways for the remainder of 2015 and beyond — boardslide shove-its (both ways), and a more widespread adoption of “skate video house” #musicsupervision (see also), as initially popularized in Palace videos.
Also, someone will probably post a link to their boy’s year-old part half-filmed in Columbus, OH to counter this…BUT 95% sure this is the first video where someone successfully does a line at that bump-to-bar / ollie up / handicap rail in front of the deli on Houston and A. That thing has been the most claimed spot in city limits for the past ~three years; if four dudes are stuck at the light on Houston and A, at least one will claim it. Also be on the lookout for the best #good trick ever done at Three Up Three Down, a spot where #good tricks are otherwise irrelevant.
Features Oak, Drew, Genesis, Kohlton, Chief Keith, John Choi, Hjalte, Nick Boserio, Antonio doing switch tres, others. The Q.S.S.O.T.Y’s appearances are minimal, but that’s probably ok considering Sure got unofficially dubbed Max Palmer: The Video.
