I heard about this video from some of the L.A. Pool Dogs. They said it was simply the best Pool/Skate video they had ever seen. They also stated the run was very limited and getting a copy would be nearly impossible. After a few phone calls my copy arrived a few days later. I sat myself down with a sixer of Modelos and pushed play on the DVD player.
Right out of the box this video is amazing. The action hits you like a hammer and never stops. Pools, Pools, Parks, some street, Vert and more Pools. The editing is well done and the music fits in perfect with every scene. There is too many skaters to list so I will just hit on a few of the talent that pops up. Neil Heddings, Sam Hitz, Navarette, Cody Boat, Roche, Hewitt, Childress, Pig Pen, Dog Boy, Danger and pretty much all the “who’s who” of Pool Skating. Highlights going to Danger and Hitz (they fucking kill it). Dog Boy throws down some killer moves along with Zach. All in all I would have to say this is THE best pool/skate video I have seen. Every once in a while somebody makes a dvd that truly depicts and defines what is means to just be a skateboarder. This DVD does a fantastic job of just that.
The Walrus gives this DVD 5 tusks out of 5. If you can find it, get it at any cost. You won’t be sorry!
