RAINDROPS SKATE VIDEO

Check out this short film by Jesse Lamar High and Nik Harper (Lamar+Nik), titled “Raindrops”. The video combines water balloons, HD slow motion footage, and skateboarding. The tricks aren’t the biggest bangers or the most technical, but it is worth a watch. The filming and direction of the video are pretty rad. Here’s to more integration of skateboarding and concept art.

We think it’s pretty cool, but you should watch it for yourself and make up your own mind about it. Maybe it’ll inspire you to go out and film something on your skateboard, and perhaps think about making it that much more interesting and fun, both to film and watch.

RIP LEWIS MARNELL

The passing of a fellow skateboarder is always tragic. Not that it isn’t tragic when anyone dies, but more so when that person is an integral part of your family or community. Lewis Marnell was an incredible skateboarder, pro for Nike SB and Almost, and will be sorely missed by the global skate community. Thankfully his memory lives on through the incredible photographs and footage we still have of him. Our sincere condolences go out to his friends and family.
