Longboarding: Footbrake FOR Life

From Loaded:
Footbraking is making a comeback, baby!
We hope you all get some good laughs from this video, because we sure had fun making it.
All references to individuals, companies or concepts, real or imagined are actually just imagined. This video is not intended to bash footbraking (or anyone else) in any way at all; it is just a comedic approach to showcasing it and a chance to lovingly satirize the stereotypical, ultra-serious “extremely extreme” mentality. We at Loaded believe footbraking is very important; it’s an indispensable skill that every skater (especially downhillers and city commuters) should be comfortable with. Footbrake for life.
Big thanks to Jonathan Jelkin for all the graphic work, color correction, and music edits; he nailed it. Super stoked on this vision; had this idea floating in my head for over a year and finally busted it out. We shall be embracing more humor this year in our videos, and it was a refreshing break and challenge to make a video like this with dialogue and an empowering theme.
