Lakai’s “Fully Flared” Skate Video
Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: Sports.
Earlier this past week a friend hit me up with the video clip of this, the introduction to the Lakai Fully Flared video. After taking a minute or two to honestly soak it in, my response to him was “this is the most beautiful skateboarding footage I’ve ever seen in my life.” It’s one thing to say that skateboarding, or sport in general, is art but it is another altogether to create art through the medium of the athlete. Fully Flared was directed by Ty Evans, Spike Jonze and Cory Weincheque, creating a brilliant landscape that surpasses traditional skate videos with use of brilliant shots and a fantastic soundtrack; I’d liken it to Menikmati, but I feel that this goes much further.
Welcome to flavor country.
