Everyday closer to Summer means there will be more East Coast skating to feast on. Nothing against the West Coast, but the more footage from the North East states recovering from the colder temperatures, the better. With that being said, all of the following videos showcase what we miss out on by not heading to the warmer side of the country.
First Video up is Evan Smith X Chris Ray Collab for Transworld’s Cinematographer Project (Blog post to follow on the video). If you want to see the whole thing you can download it here – courtesy of Os Dias do Video. While i may disagree with Ray’s choice of music, Evan Smith can’t help but get good tricks. This is creativity at its finest – 2:20 and 3:32 :
Two introduction videos in the lineup this week. Huf Footwear introduces Josh Matthews working his way through SF. First clips says it all:
Etnies introduced Nick Garcia to their squad with this video (turn off the sound and put on something good because the music is terrible):
As the Think Skateboards video “Business as Usual” is released today, there should be some time to check out their flow rider Joey Guevara destroy everything he touches:
Secondly, Thrasher gave some credit to Think’s 1996 video Damage featuring Phil Shao, Wade Speyer, and Dan Drehobl among others:
Last but not least – the honorable mentions go to: Antihero’s new catalog video featuring Frank Gerwer showcasing his amazingess. Love the advertising techniques over at Antihero. Which reminds me, check out the Peter Hewitt featurette over at the Chrome Ball. Finally, Street League sucks, but the video selections for the contestants are ridiculously good. The Jimmy Carlin and Ishod Wair videos make it a premature win.
With January and 2012 approaching, it’s time to drop the best videos of December 2011. First up, Gilbert Crockett’s Life Splicing No. 005 for Alien Workshop:

A recent addition the list brings it’s A-Game through Cory Kennedy and Bryce Golder’s skating, along with the camera and editing work. RVCA’s Northwest tour part 2.
The next edits are three small videos that do what they’re supposed to–make you want to skate.
