Nike is doing an online premiere for SB Chronicles this Saturday (December 3rd) at 6:30 P.M. If you prefer a more traditional video premiere environment (i.e. you’d rather watch it projected on a huge screen instead of a 13″ laptop), Bowery Stadium is hosting a premiere on the same day at 7 P.M. Stadium is located at 276 Bowery, right at the southwest intersection of Houston Street, next to Pulino’s. Take the F to Second Avenue and it’s half-a-block away. The video features Youness Amrani, Chet Childress, Clark Hassler, Stefan Janoski, Lewis Marnell, Daniel Shimizu, Grant Taylor (so that Thrasher S.O.T.Y. part was basically throwaway?), and Wieger Van Wageningen. You can read up on the video and watch the two trailers here.
In anticipation of the video, here is a compilation of Youness’ footage from our summer 2010 project with SB. Knowing him, he’d probably say all of this footage sucks. It doesn’t. (Though it is a notch or two below tricks like this on the intensity scale.) And that tail-less C.I.A. line is maybe the best thing to ever be in a Quartersnacks clip, short of Alex Mosley using the lobby of the Met Life building as runway to ollie a double-set. Having seen a lot of great skateboarders skate in person, Youness is near the top of the list in terms of people that make tricks look deceptively easy. See below. His part should be an entertaining one.
