Having a bad day at work? Loose your job even, how about bills, don’t get started on bills.. Get another parking ticket, or worse get your car towed? Take the old plank and four wheels for a spin, push down the street, do a kickflip or nollie flip even, get your slappy on or better yet push that bs tail even farther, then eat shit real hard, get back up and try it again. It’s going to make your day better, I guarantee it. Therapy – the definition itself explains it all.
It’s not what you do, it’s why you do it. A San Francisco scene video featuring new talent from the around bay area, local legends and underground international rippers. Full features on locals Bryan Botelho who rips, by the way, Nicholas Silva skates through the city finding his own path, Jabari Pendleton is the true meaning of a beast, Flo Marfaing has all the reasons in the world and Alex Carolino’s gives us a glimpse of what skateboarding has to look forward too. Sure we do this for fun, but that’s not he only reason to ride..
Filming this video began early in 2007, at that time the scene in San Francisco was flickering, we lost a lot of spots and a few of the city’s finest soldiers. SF’s potential has been shown before, and it’s still alive and well today. Skating here is as hard as anywhere else, now there’s even more of a reason to keep doing it.
Therapy will be a document of the state of skateboarding in SF in ’09 and will bring a light back to this promising city। There is a reason we all ride and it’s not always for fun, there’s more to it and you know it।
This world that seems to be getting worse as the days go on, lets keep pushing skateboarding, cause it keeps getting better.
