VIDEO: “Local” by Sean Slobodan is three minutes of smooth, old-school street

If you like skateboarding—pure street skating—no three minutes of your day will be better invested than by watching “Local” by Sean Slobodan. I like how the piece focuses on what’s awesome about street skating, like making wide open concrete a canvas for the creativity of the subjects. These guys aren’t yanking 720s in front of Red Bull banners or filming “fails,” they’re just skating, and it’s old-school and kick-ass all at the same time. It’s also very laid back, which is an aspect of skateboarding so often neglected for adrenaline-driven stunt riding.
