only the shake junt family can make a skate van take on a life of its own. get it straight though, this is a hardcore edit of amazing skating. the boss gets this started and theotis wraps it up, with epic guests in between. more to come!
the skate tank's been on more missions than any vehicle in the world. there's too many guests to name in the rawest edit of the year but it feels so good to see figgy get an ender again.
the tank sees all. tk sparks it, t-funk brings the heat and white draws the curtains. oh yeah, there's a bunch of other ill shit in between!
chocolate has always been an elite skateboarding brand, so we jumped at the opportunity to do a "20 years of chocolate" episode. it gave us a chance to tap a lot of skaters that have never been featured on the show before and its an honor just to ride in chocolate's wake.
we filmed more interviews than we have for any episode before—and this is still a fraction of the stories we could have told. the brand has gone through many different incarnations and endured its fair share of hardships. enjoy!
in this part we talk about keenan milton, who got on the team a year or so after it formed. he was one of the best before his tragic death by drowning in 2001. the legendary 2003 skate video "yeah right!", features a short prologue paying tribute to keenan. every story we heard about keenanis what a great guy and friend he was and how much he is missed.
later on, we catch up with stevie williamsto hear how chocolate inspired him to start his own brand, dgk.
after last week's heavy episode, it's time to relax and watch part three, where we cover kenny anderson's rise from a reluctantly sponsored vegas local to "your favorite skater's favorite skater."
we talked with kenny about learning underbrian lotti and chris miller, riding for planet earth until the very end and how artist marc johnson made his mark on girl and chocolate. enjoy!
it's always interesting to see what skaters do after their time is up in professional skating and the difficulties they face entering the real world. we tracked downchocolate alumni everywhere from weed dispensaries to auto body shops to real estate firms. in the final chocolate episode, we tried to tie up all the loose ends and take a look at the future of the team. we also caught up with some of thetrunk boyzand went to east la with vincent.
as representatives of adidas skateboarding and palace,chewy cannon and benny fairfax exemplify the essence of london street skating and can be seen in this exclusive edit extending the classic london style to spots all over the globe!
