Video III
1997, 26 minutes
Current Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

The third video offering from the FTC skate shop is a look at street skating, mainly in SF and NY, in the late 90's. It features well over 40 skaters all with a few tricks. A lot of SF heads hold down the longer parts such as Lennie Kirk, Marcus McBride and Karl Watson, all rocking the SF spots to death. There's also a full New York montage featuring Danny Supa, Quim Cardona, Huf, Steven Cales and a bunch of other east coast names. Stay tuned after the credits for Western Editon and ICS sections with small parts from Jason Wussler, Henry Sanchez and Satva to name a few.

Although not as strong a video as Finally or Penal Code, the 3rd FTC vid is relatively solid. FTC videos were never really about bangers or big name pros. They all have a strong homie vibe, which is actually really great, especially when the homies are as dope as Matt Field, Lee Smith, Danny Gonzales and Karl Watson. This flick contains Karl's BS noselide 270-out on Hubba Hideout which is amazing and you get to see Trevor Prescott nollie hardlflip the EMB seven. So dope. The NY section is pretty fresh and is set to Raekwon's "Live From NY" which works really well while watching Supa, Spencer Fujimoto and Cairo Foster handle biz. If you're into 100% steet skating and the SF vibe, then FTC III is definitely worth a peep.
