Skateboarding DVD Video Review:Deca's 2nd To None

Deca's 2nd To None - DVD Skateboarding Snowboarding skateboard snowboard DVD Video Review Five Star skateboard DVD review rating

Released: 2001
Rating: 5 Stars

Daewon Song, Shiloh Greathouse, Marcus McBride, JB Gillet, Luis Cruz, Brian Hoard, Shin Okada, Chris Haslam, Cooper Wilt.

This video is laden with energy very reminiscent of the late 80's. Hell, very few vids these days have much energy to them. They all seem to be about nailing the trick - which is important - but there's also this thing called cinematography. 2nd To None has a fast pace and awesome skating.

The intro montage is stunning. Filmed in the warehouse, it features the team sessioning everything from the top of a forklift to jumping gaps from one product rack to another. They pile stuff high and go wild on every surface in the place - including a few ramps. Some street footy is edited in as well. This vid is so well done, it's insane.

Each rider has a part, some of which is in the warehouse, but most is out on the streets. They mix in some skits and other random stuff. There's a "Chariots of Fire" routine in which they push - in super slow-mo - doing a variety of tricks while trying to sabotage each other's runs.

I suppose it's worth mentioning that this vid is full of technical skating. If you're not down with that, change your motivation in life and try to enjoy it, cuz this is a great skate vid.
