It seems that today is all about the future of skateboarding, with videos by both Antosh Cimoszko and now Mikey Alfred. The two of them clearly take heavy influence from music, musicians and youth culture in general.
It is great to see how different and original both their videos and concepts end up being.
I guess we do not have to worry about a next generation. These kids are wild:
“FTC team riders Nico Hiraga, Tafari Whitter, and Jonathan Perez were hand picked by Mike Carroll years ago to represent Lakai up in The City. The three have grown into their own, and been putting on for FTC and Lakai hard over the past few years, and this Holiday season our latest collaboration with the legendary San Francisco skateshop is based on these three Bay Area young bucks. The Lakai X FTC Holiday Collaboration features an Owen updated with our popular VLK sole. The Owen VLK was given to Nico, Tafari, and Jonathan for each of them to color up, and give some personality to. We sent the three their shoes to test in the rough streets of San Francisco.”
Create Skateboards from San Fransisco brought out a nice video project that is something between a full length and a short clip. It features the upcoming youngsters Nico Hiraga, Desmond Billie, Tafari, Whitter, Kallen Matlock and a young G called Lil Dre. Moreover, having a scene whit a guy who is threaten someone with a knife seems to have become something like a secret trend since the Almost 5-Incher or at least the last Supreme video.
