Sam Hitz #2.
This Deathbox, not to be confused with the original version of Flip, was done by Tod Swank out of his Tum Yeto empire. The company was started sometime after the Dogtown and Z-Boys documentary was released. Most of the team was guys from back in the day and most of the boards had actual shapes. There were also a few younger pool shredders included on the team. Deathbox was only around for two or three years. Sam would be back where he belonged on Creature afterward.
There's going to be a new Creature video out in December.
And in other news, Austyn Gillette's backside nollie to fakie 50-50 to switch backside 180 out is pretty damn cool.
