Conspiracy Skateboards was founded over a decade ago by Dana Buck and Lindsey Kuhn on the premise that "no other board companies were making big boards" (which can somewhat explain the teamís love of ramps and bowls). Now based out of Denver, the folks at Conspiracy traveled to Oregon and Washington to beat the crap out of every skate park in their path. More Concrete is best described as a documentation of the teamís best skate park runs and less of a promotional tool for the company. With a running time of 40 minutes, the video is not edited down to spectacular hammers or individual segments, but rather a flowing compilation of skating lines and music.

With all of the white guys in suits directing skateboarding corporations today, lost in the bowels of skating culture are the shops and teams run by true skaters. While the various carving, airs and assorted transitional stunts can sometimes be monotonous, there are still plenty of gnarly moments in the video. All-in-all, More Concrete can be watched on a lazy afternoon to get you warmed up before you get to the skate park. If anything else, get it to support the smaller companies out there who do it for the love and not for the coin.
