Video Days was not just a plain skateboarding film. It was a landmark in the progression of street skating.
Back then, the pants were 12 sizes too big, the wheels were about the size of the bearings and the boards were just about as flat as the ground. Those handicaps did not stop the blind team from cranking their skateboarding far past the proverbial 11 to somewhere around a 26 or 27.
Mark Gonzales' part could have been the entire video and it would receive as much praise. The man has just as much influence on skateboarding as Natas Kaupas. And lets not forget Natas was the first to board slide a handrail.
Jason Lee. Wow. His 360 flips in 1991 were better than most people's are today. Its funny how a 4-minute section can bring every skateboarder on the planet to their knees. His part proves that he can skate anything and everything in his path while maintaining perfect style.
Its hard to stress the importance of this video. How 30 minutes of skateboarding can influence a legion of millions. Everybody who rides a skateboard should be required to watch this film. Without it, its hard to see where we came from. Its a shining example of what makes skateboarding great.
