Scott Oster #2.

Boys Of Summer.

Vert Is Dead takes it back to the late 1980s and early 1990s for the month of December. I went more early 1990s and focused on street skating this time around.

The best video I've seen in a long time is Jeff Kutter's Boys Of Summer. It's backed by Supreme and features all the skaters you would want to see presented in a casual fashion. Boys Of Summer feels like it was filmed on an old VHS camera when everybody was out skating instead of being a major media production. It has the corresponding 1980s soundtrack to add to the throwback vibe. There's also assorted movie clips thrown in for good measure.

Scott has a couple of tricks in Boys Of Summer. He used to pro for Dogtown and Alex Olson issued a guest board for him on Bianca Chandôn.

Had that photo up on the wall, thought he was wearing work boot laces in his shoes and may have tried it around that time thinking they wouldn't fray as easily. For some other 90's goodness, check out the latest Chrome Ball Incident, Gabriel Rodriguez is up, who is near and dear to my heart as his "suicide" ad helped get me free wheels off Steve Rocco way back when.
