The Fun Boots! premiere was everything I thought it could be and more. First off, holding the event at Semoran Skateway was borderline genius. I have to say I don’t think I’d ever roller-skated before and it was a blast.
But the thing that really got me was just how good all the riders were on four wheels. I mean is this some secret hobby of everyone’s I just don’t know about? People were doing blind 3’s, skating backwards; I think I even saw a couple roller gangs form. It was kind of scary (not really).
In fact, after what I witnessed last night, I think if Nick Taylor, Travis Doran, Hooker, TJ,and Dave Hanson formed a roller skating posse, they would be a serious force to be reckoned with.
Then there was the actual premier of the video, which can be summed up in one word, epic. The video absolutely bleeds progression, and shows you some of the most innovative riding from wake to wake tricks, to locked in grinds, to winch spots most can only dream of hitting. Between the sweet music and the absolutely mind-blowing riding, it was a truly glorious moment for wakeskating.
I’m not going to spoil any of the amazing bangers that took place in the video, but lets just say that Andrew Pastura is my hero. And as for the photos, well there was just too much roller dancing awesomeness going on for me to keep up with, just check the video and see for yourself.
