This features footage from Kicked Out Of Everywhere by Real (1999), Reel To Reel by Dan Wolfe (2001), and How They Get There by Spike Jonze (1997) all glued together by Jason Jessee, who introduces three must watch Mark Gonzales video parts for Thrasher’s Classic’s feature.

Get the teas on for 15 minutes of skateboarding gold.

Watch: Etnies 2010 Montage

As with what seems to be expected with skate company edits in January, Etnies have raided their hard drives and tapes and compiled a montage of some of their favourite stuff from the year just gone.

But as it’s Etnies, they’ve gone a little extra to bringing us the very best of what a 12 month round up can be and have posted a nice blog post complete with photos and memories of the year taken and written by Sam McGuire.
