With Element's current line up of riders, what could be better than an Element team video? Nothing. Featuring newcomer Nyjah Huston, the return of the Muska, veterans like Mike V., female rider Vanessa Torres and the insanity of Bam, this vid is a must-have ordeal. Go get (buy, burn or steal) a copy today.

Element wisely snatched up young Nyjah after he killed at the Tampa Am. That seems to have paid off well when you see this kid skate. He's unreal, fearless and has years ahead of him to become even better. This kid seems unstoppable. He opens up this disc with a long part.

I was anxious to see the Muska back on a board and he didn't disappoint with either his skating or personality. He starts off by bailing a maneuver and looks up at the camera with a big smile and blurts, "What the fuck!" With big airs and style the Muska is back from his post-Shorty's hiatus.

Bam edited in a requisite quantity of "Viva La Bam" footage. He starts off being pulled over in his Lamborghini by a cop who delivers multiple citations for speeding and passing in the break-down lane (among other things). Bam bitches that he should only get one ticket since all his illegalities were all done at once. Good luck with that, dude. Oh yeah, then he skates up a storm with reckless disregard for the terrain he kills with his unique style.

Mike V's part was way to short. Just as I was getting stoked to see him along with the whole team... it was over. He should have had a full length part - not sure what happened there.

Vanessa Torres had a short part - gotta include the girls. It's always cool to see Ray Barbee skate. It brings me back to the Bones Brigade days. Bucky tore up a bunch of pools and Tosh skated Target's big red balls.

My one prime complaint is there was no bonus material. I'm sure they could have dredged up some outtakes for us, right? Maybe they're holding out for 2 weeks then releasing a Special Edition set packed with all the stuff not included on the original.
