Evolution of Skate from Shoe Power on Vimeo.

State enthusiast group Shoe Power put together this video compressing 30+ years of skate history, using an RED camera. It’s interesting to watch, skimming under two minutes, where it reminds me of many afternoons wasted in the nineties, watching skate videos with my older brother, and how it evolved from simple tricks (using assistance no less!) to launching off rails, while skaters clutch their pants upright. Stay tuned for another full-length video coming soon.
