Brazil has been populating our fine planet with some amazing skaters whose popularity is on the rise along with their talent. 411 Video Magazine #64 features a ton of Brazilian skaters, like Alex Carolino, Cezar Gordo and Rodrigo Petersen, and even goes to the extreme of including a bonus DVD with some of the best Brazilian footage and skaters from past issues.

Bob Burnquist hosts this issue and takes us on a Spot Check of his infamous back yard skatepark, and leads us into the "Controlled Chaos" segment featuring Carlos de Andrade, Adelmo Jr., Fabio Cristiano, and Rodrigo Lima.

"A Day in the Life" features Rodrigo Teixeira as he takes us to his favorite spots in his hometown of Sao Paulo. There are profiles of Fabrizio Santos comparing life in Brazil & Cali and a second profile with Nilton Neves and Og de Souza.

The opening of the disc shows Og de Souza do a backside 50-50 down a 12 stair handrail - which is eminently more impressive when you realize he has no use of his legs. Having had Polio as a child caused this ailment, but it didn't stop him from skating. Hell, this guy can ollie higher than I can! He'll make you realize that anything is possible if you really put your heart and mind into it. He later has a more in-depth segment showcasing an amazing man and skater.

Bonus Stuff

Includes Desafia de Rua and Qix Contests, Iapi Spot Check, and a lot more more. Plus there's a second DVD featuring Brazilian skaters from your previous 411VM Skateboarding videos with over two hours of skateboarding.
