Volume #1
Tree Fort
1996, 17 minutes
Current Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Treefortís first video comes from a time when you didnít have to have little kids jumping down huge sets of stairs to have a great video. Clocking in at around seventeen minutes, itís a pretty no-nonsense video, with a simple intro, five straight skate parts, and a short after-credits section featuring mostly more skating. The soundtrack is relatively mellow, as well, and youíll probably recognize most of the songs.

This video does weird things to me. On one hand, the chill music makes me want to relax. On the other hand, however, the smooth lines these guys skate make me psyched to get out there and roll around. Itís a funny combination, but it makes for a pretty enjoyable video. Youíre not going to find any crazy bangers, hammers, handrails, and other such stunts that are prevalent in modern videos, but Iím getting tired of all that anyway. Max Dufourís part doesnít even make me reach for the ďvert buttonĒ (a.k.a. fast forward), like other vert parts of the era often do. One complaint I do have is about the omission of music from the after-credits section, but now Iím just getting nit-picky.
