Remember what it was like

Remember what it was like to be a young kid skateboarder learning lots of tricks and getting out there filming with your buddies, before being sponsored and so well known; before having a bag of tricks so huge that you need a full size pick up truck to cart it around with you, and before having everyone always expecting you to kill it wherever you are… you know, when skateboarding was just for fun.

I found this video on Facebook through Kory Laan and I liked it a lot. It reminded me of being about 15-16 years old and just going out and having a blast with my friends and our skateboards. Filmed by Max Macievich, it features a bunch of the young Chuck Bailey Loc’s like Tanner and Jackson Hawthorne, Kory Laan, JR Barron, Francois LeBlanc, Majed Salem and Dominic Devries, with some super power from a couple of the older dudes like Calvin Dignard and Ryan Prasad. All in all, a good little video for us older guys who have been around the block a few times to sit back and remember what it was like when we were at that stage….
