We all know that skate sessions are going to become increasingly more difficult due to the weather this winter, but as usual, the hardcore will be out there filming no matter how cold it is, indoors or out – so this video comp is for you.
Following the success of last year’s Winter Video Edit Comp, it’s time to roll call the faithful as we are once again ready to receive your skate videos for the second year in a row. Watch Danny Bulmer’s winning edit before you go any further.
WHAT ARE THE RULES?
There are no rules. It’s a straight forward skate video comp. Your video edit can be as short or as long as you like. You can film your video anywhere you like. In a skate park, on the streets, curb, bowl, vert, pool, anywhere, in any country- just get your friends together and start filming.
If you already have fresh footage sitting right there from the last month or so doing nothing. Use it. The winner will take home £200 and a supply of Ricta Wheels.
WHEN IS THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS?
The deadline for submissions February 18th so you have about 6-7 weeks to get this together. The best videos will be launched online the week after.
HOW YOU SUBMIT YOUR EDIT?
Edit your video, upload it to YouTube or Vimeo, keep it offline and submit a private link to us via our contact page so we can watch it. The best videos we receive will then be featured and the public will vote a winner.
There are so many skate jams all over the world celebrating Halloween these days that we decided to bring a selection to you on one plate so you can get the teas on, hit the sofa and indulge in the delights that others have spent hours tirelessly working on. There will be more to surface over the next few days, so once you have taken in the gore from this lot, expect a few more to be added as they drop.
If you have photos or footage to send in from your Halloween experiences, do it.
