As you can see, Yvan Diaz’s video starts off with slams, board-breaks and almost-makes, which take up a good portion of time. That really isn’t the best way to start a sponsor me video. A lot of team managers have short attention spans and will move on to the next kid's video without giving you a chance. But I, being the nice guy that I am, stuck it out and watched the whole video. Boy, was glad that I did!
Yvan has got some serious tech skills! He’s all about flipping his board down gaps of various sizes. There was only one line in the video. I wish that there were more. It’s hard to tell a person’s style without seeing them push around. He definitely has a big bag of tricks, though, including lazer flips, nollie lazer flips, and the 360 flip at the end was bangin’! Yvan just earned himself a free pair of Emerica shoes! Thanks for sharing the vid.--Jeff Henderson
