Jenkem takes on skatepark patrons in this incredibly accurate article as well as a montage featuring everyone’s favorite Swedish Arab.
New pro Stevie Perez showcases his skill set for Lakai.
Crailtap and Valsurf also present a full Justin Eldridge part that includes footage from this continent.
If the rest of Belly Of The Beast follows in the same steps as Shaun Gregoire’s part, I recommend a purchase to all. A refreshing dose of the east coast.
Ambig releases Modern Art via Thrasher. In a similar directive and cinematographic light as Benny Maglinao’s aesthetic, this short video offering tastefully and fluidly moves. Like the sound of a warm tube amplifier, the HD footage sits well, un-apologetic because it works. Jerky fisheye shots and over saturation don’t have a home here. Clive Dixon, whom I was admittedly unfamiliar with, and glad that’s not the case anymore, shines with the video’s opening part combining power and style. A short section featuring JT Aultz, Sean Connover, and Moose all sharing the same threads and drastically different skateboard styles, fills the middle. Carolina’s favorite visitor, Matt Bennett successfully stamps another part in most innovative parts section of the skate-history books, getting in what he’s great at: fast feet, unnatural turns and backside grinds. Clint Walker’s part is available for public consumption. A mad-man.
Not overcompensating, and beautifully done, the Ambig video should be a staple in any High Def filmer/editor’s book of best practices with some video parts that will be referenced for years to come.
