SKATE HEADS

SKATE HEADS

When is the last time you heard Flexfit? Yeah, we haven't either. Surprisingly, Flexfit teamed up with BOOOOOOOM's Jeff Hamada and created this charming skate video, Skate Heads. Created with Vancouver-based directors Benny and Christian Zenga, Skate Heads features a host of riders skating a boat and a train, yes a boat and a train!

In the Zenga Bros own words:

“Skate Heads was a way to combine a bunch of things we really like: mobile living spaces, DIY skateboarding and ECCENTRIFING THE WORLD! It’s about bringing something unexpected into the streets and having a rad time.

Skateboarding is inherently about adapting and repurposing the urban landscape, but somehow even skateboarding can settle into a complacent state, where certain approaches become the norm. When street skating first started it was weird and abrasive, and that’ll always be there with wheels rattling down the sidewalk, but it’s good to remind ourselves to maintain a sense of foolishness, exploration and wonder; that is skateboarding. For us, making a backyard ramp was the ultimate form of creating our own adventure playground. Skate Heads has been a continuation of that.”
