Britannia Classic 2013 Video “Quicky”

[wptouch target=”mobile”] [/wptouch]

I took notes from Zak & Max’s Fun Pages in the newest Skate[Slate] Issue that just dropped (see page 36).  A few years back I wouldn’t release a video until it had been sitting on Final Cut for at least a month seeing revision after revision.  A last minute decision (feeling kind of sick that day) was made by me to hit up the Britannia Classic with my old camera and no expectations of anything fancy, cinematic or edited to perfection.  The result, I had fun! Click through for a link to our Facebook Video for quick recap of some of the action that went down.

Might has well been a final.  Zak Maytum, Andrew Chapman and Jackson Shapiera Deal it.  I think that’s Zen in front but he’s so bloody fast it’s hard to tell

Another tight heat.  Persson, Chapman & Zen Shikaze know each other well by know

A lot of people were rooting for Dillon Stephens, he did well by winning the Consis putting him in 4th

Chapman giving some skin to Persson, always a good sport

Persson Sliding out in the Final.  Later he told me that he wished he changed up his wheels for the final

Chapman not going to let K-rimes win that easily.  Take a close look at the footy, Andrew got really up & close coming out of this last corner
