Winona Riders Gordon & Smith
1991, ? minutes
Current Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Winona Riders is a rare second video from Gordon & Smith. After the creative hub of Chris carter and Neil Blender had left to form Alien Workshop this promo sees the remaining G&S team stripped back to a core of street pros and ams. Both rare and indicative of its era in skateboarding, the video contains a barrage of street and mini with one foots, late shove-its, bigspins and impossibles at the fore.

Kris Markovich's skating rips in this old promotional video from G&S. It's great to see his signature speed runs throughout and comparing the obstacles he attacks to those of the other skaters make him stand head and shoulders above the rest. Markovich hits big steps and rails instead of the typical manny pad, curb, and techie stuff common to the H-Street era. Willy Santos is here too (all pre-teen with gawky limbs and a big head) and is seen street-styling and skating places long gone (like the Bones Brigade Skate Park). Crappy homemade rap/rock samples give the final authenticating touch to a video era gone by, RIP.
