There’s something cool about local, independent skate videos. The fact that they don’t have to feature the biggest names or the gnarliest tricks is refreshing. Things like money or a budget aren’t determining if the video will ever be finished. And the thought of loading a crew into your friend’s car and hitting spots all day, VX1000 in hand, and filming everything and anything that happens is such a huge part of what keeps skateboarding fun.
Infinity Skateshop sent us a copy of their new shop video titled St. Losers, and it did something that a lot of new videos unfortunately don’t cause me to do anymore, which was stopping the video halfway through, grabbing my board, and going skating. (I of course made my way back inside to finish it) but seriously, it got me stoked.
The artistic side of the video isn’t overdone, the b-roll is actually cool and interesting, and the skating is raw and creative. If you can spare ten bucks, you should seriously BUY IT here – and if you haven’t already, check the trailer below.
