Ride

“Ride”, a skateboard film directed by Garth Davis, featuring Steve Berra and an amazing cast of Mexican skaters. Everyone is talking about the recent Lakai video with the fire in the warehouse but this is roughly 1,000 times more engaging.

Watch the short film below!

The film is sponsored by a certain energy drink but I’m all for advertising moving in this direction if it means less emphasis on branding and more on the artistic integrity.

    link to the lakai video?

  • I totally agree I tried to watch the Lakai video yesterday and just couldn’t get thru it, I found it way to boring, although I did really like the older first Lakai video that Spike Jonze did.

    This “ride” short is just really good also def check out the two other videos that were done in conjunction with this in promoting the new Coke Burn drink

    • the Hot Chocolate dvd that Spike did awhile ago had some nice flaming skateboard sequences – some of this stuff is pretty ridiculous though, im not even talking about the composited footage (ie building jump) – the sequence on the roofs of the vehicles is great

      • billy is god

        so the building jump isnt real?

  • What a inspirational blog, thanks for sharing

  • Best use of flames in a skate video. Everything is real. No 3D.

A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.
