skate video
I do have two: "Air Attack" produced by Rene Hulgreen and "Skate Eight" by Brian Wainwright.
Rene sold his video himself. I don't think that he still has any copies. The video was produced 10 years ago!
I have Brian's video Skate Eight on CD. It is in Quicktime movie (.mpg) format. I can send you one, just give me an address and if you are on a PC or Mac computer. It's about 5 minutes long.
I was out in LA last month skating with Duke Rennie, Lee and Desi (all rollerskaters). Duke's wife, Karen, was nice enough to put together a video tape of our skate sessions, as well as some vintage roller/quad footage from the 80's (Fred Blood and the Turning Point see-through fiberglass fullpipe capsule). So, I have an almost 2 hour long video tape of just rollerskating skateparks (including Vans Orange and Upland's fullpipe) and what a treat that is! I know all of you have had to rewind that occasional quick peep of rollerskating within skateboarding videos. I am in the process of converting the video tape into DVD, preserving the treasure (the original video is over 10 years old). I'm not sure how well a rollerskating book or video/DVD would sell, but I would put one together for myself. I do want to do a book about all of us. Soon....stay tuned!
