Fast Youth
2001, 29 minutes
Current Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Fast Youth is brought to us by the all too underrated ATM click. The video consists of simple line orientated street skating and a little vert trickery to a rowdy indie soundtrack. If you were wondering where Ronnie Bertino (of Plan B fame) went, then look no further. He's in this one.

Well, let me start by explaining the moral dilemma I face as a reviewer. I've always felt that smaller companies like ATM are the true heart of skateboarding. Small companies are usually comprised of a group of friends that are just out skating and having a great time. Bigger corporate-driven companies have less of a crew feel and more of a strategically planned out approach to picking their riders. So with that said and with all due respect to ATM, I must say... Fast Youth is a real dud. The footage is mainly comprised of basic line orientated skating. After, three views of this video, I can't remember more than a few tricks. The formula for this video is simple: a couple kickflips, a noseslide, pop shove-it or two, and repeat. I feel bad to be shitting on the little guys, but that's the truth. So if you’re having trouble sleeping: forget the valiums, pop in Fast Youth instead.
