Watch: Krooked LSD: Let's Skate Dude
I hear it over and over again, full length skate videos are dead. It seems like with every big skate video that drops, everyone exclaims that it's the last skate video ever... but then another one drops? So are they dead or nah? I'd have to say not quite yet. While big skate videos impact and lasting power has definitely decreased over the last 10 years, the new Krooked video is perfect proof that full length videos are still alive and shredding.
LSD was debuted not online, but in stores. Krooked sent out DVDs to local skate shops across the world and they all showed the video independently on November 25th & 26th. I watched LSD down at the local Tacoma skate shop Grit City Grindhouse. It felt cool to watch the video with friends and all get stoked together. It brought back memories of watching new skate videos with friends as a kid.
The video itself is great. It features Mark Gonzales, Mike Anderson, Brad Cromer, Bobby Worrest, Dan Drehobl, Sebo Walker, Ronnie Sandoval and Matt Gottwig. It's not too short and not too long. The skating is sick and the parts are well put together. The best part about the video is it all felt like one piece, not a bunch of different parts jammed together. Everyone seemed to be having fun throughout video, and it got me hyped to go skate. Watch it below!
