I got an entry in the Sponsor Me Video Review mailbox this month that really caught my attention. The first thing I noticed is that it was from a skater who lives in Maine. I know a guy from Maine who said there’s not much to skate up there, and it gets really cold--not the best environment to skateboard in. I feel for the skaters who live in cold places. It’s crazy to see footage from where there’s snow on the ground. That’s why I got so stoked seeing Jordan Pride ripping in this video!
Jordan is a very versatile rider, skating tech, gnar, even switch tech-gnar, with a nice switch 50-50. Jordan’s got a big bag of tricks and I had to keep reminding myself that he’s goofy foot. There was a switch line on three benches where, if you're not paying attention, you would think Jordan was regs. When you can skate and push switch and make it look normal, not all awkward, then you know you've got skills. Nice work, Jordan Pride. You've definitely assembled a video to be proud of! Thanks for sending it in. I hope you enjoy your brand-new pair of Emerica shoes. You deserve 'em!--Jeff Henderson
