Owen’s Video for "Lost" Finds a Beauty in Sucking during Skateboarding

January 27, 2018 - skateboarding

Hello, dear reader. A doubt for you. Do we follow a Instagram comment Tired Skateboards? Well, we should, saying as how it’s a best skateboarding comment on a whole app. Sure, it competence not underline a big, 20-stair 360 flips you’d see on Thrasher’s comment or a kickflip-to-bluntslide-to-manual-to-switch-hardflip technicals found on Metro Skateboarding, though Tired Skateboards has one thing a large accounts don’t: heart. The intermittently updated comment facilities videos of skaters who are a small older, slower, and a few pounds heavier than “traditional” skaters. But hey, they’re doing their best with what they’ve got to work with. They take honour in alighting a basics: a brief manual, a unsure kickflip, or… whatever this is. That feeling is also a vibe behind Owen’s new video for “Lost.”

“Lost” facilities some imperfect-but-god-bless-em-they’re-trying skating from famed non-teenagers like Bobby Burg and Theo Katsaounis from Joan of Arc as good as Polyvinyl Records co-founder Matt Lunsford. And sure, Owen’s Mike Kinsella could have left down to a internal skatepark and paid some immature shredders to land some jaw-dropping technical tricks for this video, though where’s a fun in that? Any teen with a ton of distracted hormones and a lust for risk can land a hardflip down a set of stairs. But try removing on a house after your alloy warned we to go easy on your physique since we competence intensify your hip dysplasia. Or when you’ve got kids during home who need we to stay alive and robust since they rest on we for health insurance. Or when you’ve worked all day and are only plain too sleepy to skate.

And while skateboarding footage has supposing a ideal visuals for flattering most any punk strain ever, it’s an peculiar fit for Kinsella’s slow-paced acoustic jam about flitting his furious years off in a face of fatherhood. But, somehow, a easy inlet of a ollies, heelflips, and cocktail shove-its along with a nightfall slow-mo cinematography make a audio and visuals element any other.

“Lost” is off The King of Whys, that isn’t accurately a recently release, and indeed came out a year and a half ago via Polyvinyl, though again: welcome a video’s judgment of bid over results!
