New York is a place of big dreams and bigger attitudes. This works perfectly in hand with skateboarding as a means of freely expressing a kind of restless energy. What happens though, when this energy collides with the force of, say, two extra-large gentlemen who don’t take kindly to shoulder checks? Such is the premise for UXA‘s latest internet video, entitled “#TheChase.” The New York-based brand tapped local shredder Eli Reed for an entertaining video short, in part to promote the skater’s UXA guest board. The viewer is transported to the cityscape of Manhattan, and given a firsthand tour via Reed’s smooth skateboard operation. The Converse Skateboarding (CONS) professional glides his way over construction barriers, over potholes and through weathered concrete – all leading up to one heck of an ender. After enjoying “#TheChase,” be on the lookout for the Eli Reed guest model on UXA’s web shop and at select retailers in the coming weeks.
