Lakai, the footwear brand that brought you one of the greatest cinematic skate videos in the history of skateboarding, is back just in time for Christmas.
This one is not on as large of a scale, and it’s not years in the making, but guess what? It’s free. As in an internet short video of the team on their Voltage tour through Germany, Switzerland and France. The European scenery is breathtaking as usual, the soundtrack is perfectly original (as far skate videos go) as usual and it’s one of the best teams around, so guess what? The skateboarding is about as good as it gets for a skate crew on a tour schedule.
The Crailtap crew blesses the internet and skateboarding with one of these short films a few times a year, so if you’ve seen any of the Girl, Chocolate and Fourstar editions this one’s along the same lines. But we never get old of it, right?
One difference in this one though, is the introduction of Tony Hawk’s son, Riley, in a Crail inter-shor-film (the new way to say internet short film).
The skateboarding is on point, the filming by Federico Vietta and Mark Nichols is on point and to cap it off the editing by Vietta is keeps your eye. And the cast is as follows:
Mike Mo Capaldi
So without further Adu:
