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!
