Guide Review - That's Life Flick - Foundation skate video review
Leo Romero starts the video off. He's new and young, and he pushes himself hard. Right at the start he tries to 50-50 a rail, falls and racks himself hard on the rail... But then, with no music, the camera continues to roll as Leo cusses, pulls himself off the ground, and stomps back up the stairs. A moment passes. Then Leo comes flying back onto the screen and slides the rail perfectly. The whole thing was awesome to watch - the rest of Leo's section is great - he skates fast, hitting gaps and rails.
Daniel Shimizu is a guy that I think doesn't get as much publicity as he should. His runs are all long strings, lazy and smooth. In one, he ends a series of tricks with a freakishly long nose manual all the way around a fountain. You almost expect to see a score on the screen when Shimizu skates.
The video also has a "Friends" section packed with footage of all the Tum Yeto guys, some Ams and some managers. I love sections like this, where who-knows-who pulls of who-knows-what, and it's all good and fun. This is a great skate video. All the skaters have clear unique styles.
It does have some cussing, some rude gestures, and some smoking - compared to some skate videos, it doesn't have much. But still, for conservative parents out there, you might want to watch the video with your kids.
Check it out, and see what I mean. That's Life is a solid skate video. No hype, just great skating.
