Doug Des Autels
Age: 98
Arcadia, California

What up, homies! First off, let me say that Doug Des Autels friggin' rips! His style reminds me a lot of Josh Kalis, and there are tons of gems in this Sponsor Me video, including some really difficult flip-in / flip-out shenanigans on just about every object you could think of, plus some really crazy ledge hammers and a big assortment of technical wizardry. Nice work, Doug!
This is a really good vid filled with some incredible skateboarding, but I gotta admit there are a few things I'm not really into. The "speed-up" and "slow-mo" editing between tricks kinda changes the flow of some of the lines. I'm a fan of the "show it how it is" type of videography, so it's a bummer to see those kind of effects put on such great skating. Remember, less is more. My ex-girlfriend told me that once...ouch.
Also, the music selection. I know it's all personal preference, but the music is a bit too impersonal and repetitive for my liking. Combined with your own personal style and your skating, music can seriously bring a part to life, but it can just as easily take away from it. If you're feelin' the mellow jams, cram some classic De La Soul or A Tribe Called Quest up in that joint and I'll guarantee the whole feeling will change!
Regardless of my petty nit-picking, Doug is super talented, and there is no doubt in my mind that he will find a permanent home in the skateboarding bizz. Thanks for the vid, Doug, and the next noseslide double heel out that you do will be in some brand-new Emerica shoes. Big-ups to Doug! Stay Gold.--Timothy Nickloff, Emerica Sales Manager
