Young filmmaker Blaine Davies's new trailer for the 2012 Crisis Skateboards team video nails the perfect mix of what everyone wants to see in a proper skate vid: It's a combination of equal parts mind-blowing, technical, holy-shit skateboard prowess and people wrecking themselves over and over again, as if you can't fully appreciate the one without the other. The forthcoming video features Crisis Skateboards owner Jeremy Frankovis as well as team riders for the skate shop at 6821 West 120th Avenue in Broomfield, including Connor Grosh, Carleigh Samson, Kevin Davenport, Chris Schwartz, Keenan Meyer and Justin Rice.
Crisis opened in October 2010 and has become one of the region's coolest core skate shops. Stay tuned to the Crisis Skateboards YouTube channel and the blog at www.SkateCrisis.com for a steady flow of new video clips from local crews and to keep tabs on the shop's big plans for Go Skateboarding Day on June 21.
