ADIDAS IN GREECE
Adidas just released a new tour video from a recent trip to Greece that is six minutes of pure goodness! Shot in Athens and Mykonos this past May, this new clip features Dennis Busenitz, Silas Baxter-Neal, Lucas Puig, Tim O'Connor, Pete Eldridge, Benny Fairfax, Nestor Judkins, Lem Villemin Jake Donnelly, Vince De Valle, and Chewey Cannon. The opening titles have art composed of Greek gods, warriors, and mythical creatures; which is fitting because all of these guys are legendary in their own right. It doesn’t get much better than the Adidas line-up and this Greece tour video punctuates that.
Lucas Puig sets the tone with his signature style. He makes skateboarding look easy and from the very first trick you know this clip is going to be off-the-hook! Lucas lurks ledges and manhandles manuals like no other and is a tough act to follow. Fortunately, the Adidas team is stacked. I mean they’ve got Dennis Busenitz, and I can’t think of a better person to follow up Lucas! Dennis is the power to Lucas’ finesse. The kid goes hard and that’s about all you can say about him. He charges everything at mock twenty and always lands perfectly. Needless to say, Dennis represents throughout this clip.
Next up is English ruler and former Battle At The Berrics champ Benny Fairfax. Benny is a smooth operator and a pleasure to watch. The editing moves a little faster after Benny, Silas Baster-Neal, Jake Donnelly, Pete Eldridge, and Lem Villemin all drop heat one after another and the video continues in a montage style with Nestor Judkins, Vince Devalle, and Chewey Cannon getting added into the mix. These guys do so much awesome stuff that you literally have to rewind the video a couple of times to comprehend it all!
Aside from the skating, you can tell the Adidas team is having fun. They get into some antics with a motorcycle, ride boats, hit beautiful beaches, and cruise around on ATV’s. On top of that, they’ve got Tim O’Connor providing comic relief. What more can you ask for on any trip abroad? Greece looks like a beautiful place, you’ll definitely want to plan a trip there after watching this clip.
