Daniel Vega
Tepic Nayarit, Mexico
Age: 18

Since Hendo (Jeff Henderson) is out of town on vacation, I was pretty psyched when I was asked to review Daniel Vega's footy. I always enjoy checking out what you, our fellow Emericans, are up to out in the streets.
Daniel, you've got some super buttery rail tricks in this vid! The kickflip front board, nose blunt and switch front board were all super dope. Not to mention your closer: a big spin front board--very nice! You've got some great talent loaded up in your Sponsor Me Video, but the one thing I wasn't as into was all of the basics that were included.
At the level of today's pros, the "basics" just don't cut it. You really want to showcase your very best tricks, especially since you've only got a minute to floss your steez in front of a potential sponsor. I liked some of the runs that you put together, and I think with more planning regarding which tricks should go where, you could put together some great lines. I would have also liked to see more variety in the terrain you can shred. From that "impossible" spot that no one can skate, to something no one would even think of--the more creative, the better.
Daniel, this a great first effort at making a Sponsor Me Vid, and I think with more planning, editing, trick selection and variety, you could really raise some eyebrows next time. Keep ripping, progressing, landing those hammers and good things will come. Thanks for submitting your footage, and enjoy your free pair of Emerica shoes! Stay Gold.--Timothy Nickloff, Emerica Sales Manager

    logansk8boyy's Emeritar logansk8boyy Posted:
  7. It was good. Some things that could've been improved are the basics being taken out and close angles on some of the larger stuff. Also idk if it was the computer that i used or the site but it was extremely pixelated. Good job Daniel Vega

  46. Tthe vid was OK...some tricks a lil sketch also need to be more tech. on ledges and rails

    theyouth77's Emeritar theyouth77 Posted:
  47. I have to admit that to be skating in Mexico, daniel vega is pretttttttty gooooooooooooooooood. i lived in Mexico for most of my life, and the skatespots are all pretty shitty. So when i saw his vid, i was pretty amazed how he was able to skate all of those shitty spots.

    ivankumamoto's Emeritar ivankumamoto Posted:
  48. i feel bad for u, u have no sk8 spots in Mexico. u did well sk8ing them tho.

    sk8now's Emeritar sk8now Posted:
  49. Overall I liked the Video. Some good tricks stood out and some not so good stuff that was sloppy did as well. In my opinion I would wait probably another year in a half before you send videos out to companies. You have some of the tricks needed, but I think just another year will clean up some of your not perfect switch tricks and make your lines a little faster. Other than that you've gotten to a good level in skateboarding. Good job, atleast deserves a pair of free shoes in the mean time but another year and film then and you'll be ace. Good Video.

    NJskate's Emeritar NJskate Posted:

    qdizzle's Emeritar qdizzle Posted:
  71. this kid is decent. i'm not looking to hate but this kid could clean up his style a bit. The ground definately looks sketchy, i noticed that but you also had some nice spots to work with. Props on rail steeze, and that one long dirt gap looks sick. With more practice maybe some more shoes will get thrown your way.
