Gracias Skateboarding, Volumen Uno, directed by Ben Fordham, is the brainchild of Gracias LA., which is a clothing company brought to you by singer/songwriter/skateboarder, Ben Harper. ZJ’s Boarding House in Santa Monica, California, played host to an outdoor premiere of the video release. Those who showed up packed in and witnessed some new footage from Rodney Mullen who was also in attendance for the showing. The video remind me of a ’90s skate video with its rawness and an abundance of creative spots. The best part was how stoked and supportive everyone was of each other’s parts in the video. It was refreshing to see the next generation coming up with such incredible style and aggression. Search this video out and you won’t be disappointed.
