It feels like that Girl Skateboards is stronger than ever and it is safe to say that you could blame it on their new talent. Watch Niels Bennett, Tyler Pacheco, Simon Bannerot, Sean Malto & the one and only Rick McCrank skating the city of London.
After 2016’s film “The Way Out” comes this year’s “Year 13” and once again Jim Greco managed to create something that stands out. The music is different, the way it has been shot is diverse, the way Jim dresses seems out of time and really the only critique we have are the heavy slo-mo’s, they do remind us of Baker’s Bootleg video which does make sense in some way.
The great constant in both films is the fact that it’s always Jim out skating with his longtime friends. In a sea of youth-driven culture Jim just sticks to his crew and if he continues putting out this film we will have a great document of what growing older in skateboarding can look like.
