Today, MTN DEW announced its latest short film, “MODERN LINES,” a showcase of an innovative new skateboard course that combines transition and street skating that was the vision of pro team rider Curren Caples (and designed and built by CA Ramp Works). “MODERN LINES” will air on ABC’s World of X Games on Sunday, September 29, with a global digital encore on the MTN DEW YouTube channel directly following the national TV airing.
MTN DEW’s riders, which include Curren Caples, Sean Malto, Mariah Duran, Theotis Beasley, and Chris “Cookie” Colbourn, skate with some of their personal favorites—Mason Silva, Jake Anderson, and Jenn Soto—bringing the newly designed course to life and demonstrating their broad spectrum of skills. With flowing neon green lines and unique glowing features, the course was built for fun and fast skating, and housed within a 74,000 square foot vacant industrial building in Southern California. (If you’re keeping track, that’s like 2 Berricses!)
“I’m hyped to see the ‘MODERN LINES’ course come to life,” Caples says. “I wanted to build something fun for me and my friends to skate that blurred the lines of traditional street and transition courses. I’m stoked that MTN DEW helped take my idea and bring it to life with the entire skate team involved.”
The “MODERN LINES” build-out and private skate session was captured by Mack Dawg Productions, including two legendary skate filmmakers, Director Mike McEntire and Director of Photography Ty Evans. The documentary-style short film details the process from start to finish. Tune in to ABC on Sunday, September 29, 2019 at 2pm ET/PT, or catch a digital encore via the MTN DEW YouTube channel directly after and join the conversation on social at #DewModernLines.
MTN DEW has been a part of The Berrics experience, off and on, for many years. The brand’s involvement helped bring a lot of rad content to life (our epic New York Week in 2014 springs to mind). Check out some of the content that wouldn’t have been possible without DEW, below:
