The Raw World of Street Skating in East L.A.

More

Shot entirely from a moving vehicle, director Colin Kennedy follows Austen Gillette as he whirls by speeding cars, cross-country teams, and day laborers in neighborhoods of downtown and historic East Los Angeles. Quik, a video collaboration between Quiksilver and The Berrics, gives us a unique and mesmerizing glimpse into the gritty world of street skating. 

For behind the scenes footage of the making of Quik with Austen Gillette, visit their site.
