“The Trail” has — through no shortage of hard-wrung effort, we can be sure — accomplished the impossible.
Lee Madden and Orchard’s roster of mainstays (Sean Evans, Ben Tenner, Myles Underwood and Brian Reid) have made a Boston skate video with no Eggs footage. No skate scene is without a riptide of a spot or two, but short of maybe Pulaski’s hold on D.C. skateboarders, Eggs’ magnetism is unbridled on the east coast.
All jokes aside though, “The Trail” is a follow-up to “EGG,” the all-Eggs video that this roster dropped this time two years ago, effectively purging their stockpile of footage from New England’s most famous skate spot, so that they could go ahead and churn out lines on Boston’s brick-and-granite side streets. The entire video was filmed in Boston proper, without taking a refuge for less traversed terrain out in the city’s suburbs. Filming and edit by VX Lee Madden, with 16mm by Vito Ramirez.
