“Sexwax” is the latest video from Sexhippies and Orchard Skateshop videographer, Ted Purtell. Filmed in New York, Albany, and Springfield, Massachusetts, it’s the follow-up to this past winter’s inaugural “Hi” video with a small parts’ worth of footage from Eddie and Jojo Vargas + appearances from Cooper Qua, Zac Gavin, Jasper Dohrs, Carlos Kanter and Colby Strong. Fence scrapes seem to be on the rise (that ender spot is some shit you’d expect from a video out the northern U.K. crust), and there’s a tre in there worthy of the pantheon of emphatically rotated Photosynthesis tre’s.
And if you’re just joining and wondering “wtf is Sexhippies?” — Village Psychic got the backstory a few months ago re: the origins of the brand and how the crew came together.
Jeff Cecere’s latest feels like a nice palette cleanser after the onslaught of Skateboard Oscars Season™. Mostly filmed in New York, with lots of deep dives for spots, the continuation of the Polish Ledges’ 2022 Renaissance, and banks protruding from places you hadn’t even noticed had banks — Mind How You Go is a perfect way to close the lid on a month of skate videos worthy of a ESPN 30 For 30.
Features parts from Zac Gavin, Max Maffucci, Nate Grzechowiak, Tristen Ramirez and an incredible ender part from Johnny Cumaoglu (not to mention a surprise Bronze section held down by Mark Humienik, Dick Rizzo, Josh Wilson and Grady Smith.) Filmed and edited with precision by Jeff Cecere.
Avid Monday Links readers have no-doubt been catching nods to Bluecouch edits for years now — from 2016’s “Yeet,” to 2017’s “Washed,” all the way to “Prolouge,” the one from last December that began to tie together this current roster.
Like so many crew projects, this one snowballed far beyond what anyone first intended. What started as an Insta edit, became a montage, until ultimately becoming “Group Chat,” the four-part video you see here today.
