Colin Kennedy’s “The L.A. Boys,” a documentary about the skaters behind one of the most influential video sections of all time, is out now. What better time to take a look at the raw footage from one of his earlier projects: the visionary “QUIK” featuring Austyn Gillette. Here’s what Berra said about “QUIK” when it was first released in 2013:
One of the best looking guys on and off the board is without a doubt Austyn Gillette and Colin Kennedy put into motion with him a project he had been talking with me about for at least a year. The result was one good looking dude, one good looking style, and one damn fine looking video project, QUIK. -SB
“The L.A. Boys” is available now on iTunes, and on the following platforms: Vimeo on Demand (side note: this is the best viewing option for skaters in Europe), Amazon, Google Play, VUDU, Playstation Video, and on Xbox. If you have even the faintest interest in the late-’80s tectonic shift towards what was then known as “street style” skating, you need to see this movie. It will give you goosebumps.
The Berrics will be releasing exclusive content from the filming of “The L.A. Boys” throughout the week. Stay tuned!
