I NEED MORE COWBELL
I don’t even remember what snowboarding video it was; maybe a promo video for the now defunct Future Snowboarding Magazine, but it was the first time I heard Peter, Bjorn and John’s “Young Folks”. I was mesmerized by the feel good vibes… A few days ago, I downloaded the free Bones skateboard wheels video “new ground” . The vid features veterans of the bones wheels team, but really highlights newcomers that are changing the game and ushering in the next era of skateboard progression. Once again, Peter, Bjorn and John blow me away with the excellent cowbell fueled “second chance”. The track is a perfect backdrop for the mind blowing acrobatics; seeing someone jump a road gap on a snowboard is always impressive, but watching Enzo Cautela floating a laser heelflip over a 15 foot road gap on a skateboard, and you realize we are in a new era.
