Magenta Skateboards NY Capsule

From Magenta Skateboards...

"We went on a trip to New York City a few months back and we came back with this Capsule.

What's a goddamn "Capsule" you might ask? It's basically a montage of us skating around with our friends. It's not HD, it's no crazy 5 hour mission on some perfect spot to get the latest combo or some crazy stunt on tape, but rather some plain old fashioned street skateboarding with whatever happened that day, if our friend managed to film it.

Jean Feil filmed and edited this one, which features Jimmy Lannon, Soy Panday, Vivien Feil and some friends they met up with in NY.
Here it is:
