German Nieves

New Thirsty

Well, not so new anymore as the video itself is already nearing twelve years of age, but "New Thirsty" remains fresh to this day, being essentially a Popills full-length. Popills was the crew skating for Justin White's camera lens that also happened to be one of the first visible to ever release quality online edits pre-Youtube (let alone Instagram video) times back when just hosting one's own files on the web was a complete battle of its own.

But Popills' activity ended up influencing an entire generation, notably of aspiring skate filmmakers worldwide who happened to be onto this new www thing early enough on to catch a glimpse of it at its peak, and "New Thirsty" is the DVD monument those guys left behind. Out of the crew, some never stopped skating and still do to this day, Justin is now a teacher and the myth lives on via this full-length, the fragrance which is reminiscent of some of the best "STATIC" videos.

Fat cap

Listen up, youth, in order to pass your "Nineties Illustrated" course, you should study this lost part of German Nieves –a name you most likely never heard of– for the simple and good reason that it is a great example of what those times had to offer: tech and clean, capable and willing to rip it all, and all under a strong hat game!

Hi8 TV (1997)

From the same James Hodgson that recently gave us footage of young Puleo or Wenning, amongst others, this edit goes even further in time, back to Hi-8 times… A look that will make the trendiest youngsters jealous with envy, and the old heads nostalgic! But, mainly, here is some explosive skating from Bobby Puleo, and also a sadly forgotten Andy Bautista… Good stuff!
