I can only be brief at the moment because I’m using my phone to post this, but in short the video was fucking sick.
Daryl Angel had the opening section, laid down some pretty sick hammers and tech grind skills.
Next up it was David Clark. Can’t remember much of this section apart from that it felt quite short.
Shane O’Neil and Theotis Beasley had a joint section which was super rad, back to back stair sessions and a whole host of nails in the coffin.
Grant Taylor, the token Bowl rider was next. All I’m saying is OH MY FUCKING GOD. Mad skills.
Then to finish up this 25minute sicko-fest was Justin Brock. Wouldn’t have been my ender based on his rag style, but oh my is he good. The ender was so silly, Brophy Ollied it . . . and he 360flipped it!
Nike supplied Free Beer and Free Pizza to everyone at the event which was really sick. I also heard that they delivered the Beer in Nike SB shoe boxes! And inside 10 of these boxes where a Debacle t-shirt and other stuff. Unfortunately Slam didn’t give any of that shit out, I guess cause it was probably the biggest venue and loads of people went to see it there.
Which brings me to the next part of sickness Nike had in store for us! The video was being streamed simultaneously to 58 other sites in Europe! Each with their own webcam to record the reactions of the crowd. We could see all of these webcams on a little slideshow, whilst in the bottom corner was a countdown till the video was going to start. Before the film started I caught a glimpse of the Southsea Crew all chilling in one of their living rooms, advertising the Bored website.
The colours in the video where absolutely amazing, they definitely showed off the capabilities of the HD equipment, although I didn’t see much “Ty Evans Tracking Dolly” maneuvers that have been rinsed since the dawn of HD.
Can’t wait for this to be out, so make sure that you keep an eye out on the Debacle Site and download the full video on the 24th of this month, COMPLETELY FREE!!!!1111ONEONE
Slam City Skates is holding the London Premiere of the new ALL HD Nike SB flick called “Debacle”. It’s being shown on both floors of their store, so there will be plenty of room. A little birdy also told me that there is Free Pizza and Free Booze, so I’m in!
Here’s the trailer for you to wet your whistle before the full release.
