Gravis "Dylan Rieder" and Emerica "Stay Gold"

If you haven't had the chance to watch it yet, head on over to the Gravis site and check out the short film titled "dylan rieder." If features the skating of, you guessed it, Dylan Rieder which is phenomenal...super sick, smooth style for miles, a good soundtrack...watch it a few times then go outside and get your skate one. I got a copy of it on dvd with the latest issue of The Skateboard Mag and it also contains some bonus skating from Arto Saari, Steve Forstner, and Javier Mendizabal. All in all it's an awesome little skate video with a full part from Dylan.

Next up is the brand spanking new Emerica video, Stay Gold (which was 5 years in the making). The entire video, from start to finish is top notch. Heath Kirchart has a career retrospective part which bleeds into his new footage, and is in fact his farewell video segment as he's now retired from the pro ranks of skateboarding (also, his part is an "easter egg," go to the chapter select screen, highlight "back to main" and hit the right arrow button, then enter). Like I said, the entire video is incredible and every skater gave it their all, but my favorites are Hsu, Leo, Reynolds, Herman, Westgate, Kirchart, and Barrier Kult (again, their part is an easter egg, go to the bonus section, highlight andrew's madness section, hit the left arrow, then enter). Head on over to your local shop and pick this up for under $20, and put a smile on your face.
