Kickflip to Grind: Israel as Giant Skatepark
The good folks over at Cliche Skate, whose team consists mostly of French skaters with a couple of Americans and Aussies for good measure, just wrapped up their video tour of Israel. It’s a side of Israel you don’t see that often – the walls and streets are the same, but you’ve never seen it from the perspective of a skater. The video shows them pulling off tricks everywhere they can make them, finding new ways to interact with Israel’s storied historic buildings.
To borrow a cliche (and a pun) from 1994, it’s a pretty sick video. Check it out below, courtesy of Skateboarder Magazine, which is also publishing photos and the story of their Israel video tour in the August/September issue.
