Foundation's Nervous Breakdown is a punk-rock fueled street skating video filled with rail and stair skating. The video goes part by part with no skits or commercials, with a tour/friends section halfway through featuring skaters such as Ed Templeton and little Evan Hernandez. With the exception of one or two songs, the entire video is a slew of fast skate cuts layered with an all out barrage of punk.

Nervous Breakdown is a fitting name for this video. The opening montage is that of skaters focusing boards and eating shit on rails. This sums up the theme of the video very effectively, and helps to prepare you for the oncoming onslaught of hesh mayhem. Ethan Fowler lipslides the Hollywood 13, Tony Dasilva 360 flips the Bricktown 10 in between throwing down some tech lines, and Jon West hurricanes rails with ease. The standout part in the video belongs to Daniel Shimizu. He puts the smack down on the rails and stairs while still throwing down some impressive technical lines. From kickflips down big stairs to backside tailslides down rails, and kickflip frontside blunts on ledges, Shimizu shows how deep his bag of tricks is. The biggest complaint I have about this film is that aside from the few parts mentioned the rest of the video is mediocre to average footage. There is no real innovation or progression, nothing that pushes the envelope. The music will appeal to hardcore punk fans, but some of the music didn't fit the skating. Overall, the video is a good collection of hesh street skating, but it's no Welcome to Hell by any means.
What to Expect:
