So, I was hankering for some Natas Kaupas footage today while thinking about the old days of my youth where summers were filled with skateboarding all day and kicking back at a friends house watching the very few skateboard videos we had over and over again trying to lock down each trick we saw. I remember I posted about Natas several years ago so I looked it up. The post was in bad shape with an old youtube link that died. I was going to just simply update the post but I really wanted to post it again, so here it is, a fresh good quality video link to Natas’s part in the Santa Cruz video “Wheels of Fire” and the following text is my old post about this pivotal skate part. ENJOY!
Hey look everybody, it’s the Pickpocket Man! What can I say, this video part is part of me, of my skateboarding life. The music is ingrained into my brain forever. I remember watching this video part over and over and learning every move Natas made. He seems like the kind of goofball guy you’d love to go skate with…in fact he reminded me of one of my skateboarding buddies back then named Eric. If you haven’t already, watch and learn…this is skateboarding with style…If you’ve already seen it, well, kick back and relive the memories and then go out and do some wallies if you still can! 🙂
PS. Here is the song info for those of you interested…
