Mix Tape
Zoo York
1998, 40 minutes
Current Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Zoo York's Mix Tape fully represents the East Coast skate scene with tons of street skating footage from underground rippers all the way up to the style-masters you gaze upon in magazines. Also included is some music and footage of early freestyling from several now-famous rappers.

Zoo York makes good boards, but they need to work on their video making skills. I'm not really into the whole hip-hop thing, but I have respect for it. And with that in mind, while I watched Mix Tape, I still thought that it was bland as hell. There weren't many tricks that actually stuck out, just a lot of street lines and flowing. Harold Hunter had a pretty good part, as did Vinny Ponte. But even those weren't all that entertaining to watch. I don't know about you, but when I sit down to watch a skate video, I want it to make me wanna go out and have fun skating. This video didn't achieve that at all. Maybe there's something that I was missing while watching it, but overall, I thought that Mix Tape blew.

The only way to really sum this video up is to say that Mix Tape is a TRUE street skating video. In other words, instead of seeing some dude huck himself down a rail, youíre going to witness endless amounts of clean street lines. During the time of its release, Zoo York had a huge squad of heads so there is plenty of skating from a variety of styles to be seen. Vinnie Ponte, Harold Hunter, Danny Supa plus plenty friends footage are all thrown into the package. Each segment is at least 2 minutes long and as expected, most of the skating is done in NYC. I love this video because Iím all about the idea of skating in big cities; itís a sense of freedom being out in such an open environment where skating pretty much got started. The best is saved for last with Robbie Gangemi. If you donít know how ill Robbie is, you have to get this video. Make sure to check the hardflip technique at the Brooklyn Banks.
