DEF Skateboards Video Captures Skateboarding in Stunning HD Slow Motion
Skateboarding videos can be good and bad. Good in the sense that watching people shred their respective parks and cities on four wheels is always entertaining. Bad in the sense that, unfortunately, not all films do the riders and tricks justice. For New Zealand-based, DEF Skateboards, the quality of the footage is as crucial to putting together a good skate reel as sticking the actual tricks is. In their latest 2012 promo video, the collective took to the streets with a high definition camera and then retroactively slowed down the footage to capture all of the details of the mayhem. The editing adds a bit of elegance and fluidity to the footage that would’ve easily been missed out on watching it in real-time.
