SL Push.ca Seg. 03: Vancouver Breach Roll
Back in the studio again bringing you the latest segment in the Push.ca SL series: the Vancouver Breach Roll.
Some of the first street filming sessions I had in BC were in New Westminster. I was living in the downtown Vancouver area then, but frequently took the train out to New West to skate the park and link up with the homies. Ross usually had a whip for us to get around, Dennis was just down to skate and eventually lil' G rolled up and set a new standard for skateboarding in that crew.
There were others including Dennis' brother Jim Atanasov who's footage is on lock until the premiere of SL. And Taylor Clark, an American import from Everett Washington. The encounters with Taylor lead me to meeting his sibling, Thomas Clark who seemed to be just as talented as Taylor. Everett's local video producer Garret Hunt showed up to skate and film VanCity and so did Anthony Romine or "Aro". Both with considerable contributions to the SL project, Garret filmed the Seattle montage and Aro raps over it. But that's a future story.
For now I'm going to leave you with an introduction of some of the people I've worked with in Vancouver. I've filmed mini shreds that have turned into serious ams, seen girls that skate, girls that rip and had the opportunity to shoot with major players in today's skate game. Filming can bring you anywhere and introduce you to lots of diverse and interesting people. Here are some for now.
Be sure to check out the Vancouver Plaza segment that features legends from years past and today. And last month the East Coast Underground segment showed us what it's like to skate during the winder months in Toronto. Some of the best sessions I've had were in the underground networks that lie beneath the city of Toronto. See you next time.
