Back in April, TransWorld SKATEboarding held its first annual Skate & Create contest. In a nutshell, the contest consists of four teams of four pros, one am, a photographer, a videographer, and an art director. Each team is locked in a warehouse for nine days with a smorgasbord of ramps, rails, banks, and boxes. The team that can come up with the most creative set concept, skate obstacles, photography, skateboarding, and video wins. All teams involved produced amazing videos and brilliant photos, but after the judging was said and done it was DVS that emerged as the winner.
Even your granny is going to want to start building a half-pipe in the living room after she sees this. As kids, we were constantly building crude skateboard ramps and BMX tracks that were even worse. The winning DVS video captures not just the kinetic freak out fun of skateboarding, but also the joy of building.
