Gino Iannucci for Nike SB – Dec 2013
“Gino footage. A Christmas miracle.”
Yep, US based retailer Brick Harbor joined forces with Nike SB in order to bring you some proper festive cheer this year, in the form of a solid minutes worth of new/unseen Gino Iannucci footage. If, like some folks out there, you spent six minutes of your time in November staring at the Nyjah section repeating the age-old Slap mantra of “I’d rather watch Gino push” over and over inside your head, you probably leapt for joy at the sight of Gino hammering out at mashup of flawless hip flip trickery, and what would be classed on paper as ‘mosher skatepark tricks’, but with that timeless and nonchalant style of his. For the first time ever you might have had that inner urge to go down the park and learn fakie pivot halfcab pivot on the bank to block, backing it up with a backside nosepick on the same obstacle. If you couldn’t make it to the park, maybe you spent your Christmas morning powering down the local high street trying to master frontside shove-it no comply’s.
It was all a bit too much for one YouTube wordsmith though – “a potato can make better tricks” apparently.
Not too sure about the hypnotic 30 seconds of pulsating ‘purchase Nike SB here’ text and Brick Harbor linkage tagged on at the end, but I guess if that’s what you have to click away from in order to enjoy a minute of new Gino footage every now and again then so be it. Just go at it with a “these are not the Dunks you are looking for…” mind set and you’ll be fine.
