Even though I’ve previously told myself I would never film a competition again, when Scott Quinn asked me to do the official Unit 23 Open edit, I didn’t hesitate.
This was one of the best but also least competitive comps I’ve ever been to. Everybody was skating really hard but at the same time they were cheering each other on and smiling and laughing the entire time. – Anthony Medina.
Music: El Ten Eleven – Yellow Bridges (Slow Magic Remix) – get the song on Amazon.com.

Kids like Andrew Broom are rare these days. No crutch foot, skates fakie both ways, spins both ways (in and out of tricks), kills both park & street, no arm swing.
Andrew is both technical & drops hammers, and he’s all around just a great kid. If you’ve been living under a rock and you “have never seen an edit” of his, time to wake up. I could sit here and explain to you a million different ways why Andrew is an absolute badass, or you can just watch this section. – AM.
Music: Opossum – Cola Elixir.
Jarrod Banning ended up taking 2nd place so it was a good competition for the Ground Control team… After a long night of partying (more than usual), we managed to spend the last 2 days shredding the streets of ATL. Here’s what went down.
Music: Antwon – Underwater Tank, [...].
Featuring Quintin Lamb, Howie Bennett, Chris Smith, Kevin Lapierre, Carson Starnes, Keaton Newsom, Brian Weis & Jarrod Banning. Filmed by Antony Medina & Chris Smith, edited By Anthony Medina.

It’s been 14 years since I’ve actually filmed for a section/ edit. Usually I’ll just collect clips here and there while working on videos or projects for other people.
When my good friend Austin “Foogie” Bartels moved here I finally had someone that I knew loved to film and I trusted to hold me down behind the lens.
It’s not that none of my other friends couldn’t film, it’s that I felt weird asking someone like Mason Richard to film me do a trick that he could do both ways 1st try.
After wrapping up Waterloo I decided I would take some time off from being a full-time filmer, and because Foogie was down, we decided to film a full part together.
If you know me, you know I’m never truly satisfied with my work, but all things considered I’m pretty happy about how this turned out. This is what I’ve been up to for the past 6 months. Hope y’all like it. – Anthony Medina.
Filmed by Austin “Foogie” Bartels, additional Filming: Andrew Broom, Greg King, Mason Richard, & Cody Sanders.
Skaters: Fredrik Andersson, Jarrod Banning, Andrew Broom, Josh Glowicki, Nils Jansons, Andy Jacuzzi, Keaton Newsom, Mason Richard & Carson Starnes.
Timona Kasue busted his ass filming for this section. For real tho… He broke his foot and wrist. TK is a beast and most of the shit he does could be considered an ender because it’s so fucked up…. And that’s also why he was always getting hurt haha.- Anthony Medina.
Song: Ray Charles – I Don’t Need No Doctor.
Last summer myself, Eric Milliren, Josh Ferguson & Greg King flew into San Francisco for the V premiere and from there rented a car and headed down to San Diego, making stops along the way. We didn’t film or skate a whole lot but we had a blast. – Anthony Medina.
Featuring Josh Ferguson, Hunter Grimm, Anthony Medina & Russell Day. Filmed by Greg King, Anthony Medina & Eric Milliren. Song: Lou Reed – Paranoia Key of E.
Ground Control would like to introduce all new shredder Andrew Broom to The Watchlist. This marks the beginning of an all new team division and media series we will be releasing upon introducing new riders! 13 clips to show the world what you got… Stay tuned and enjoy!

The Austin scene has been growing over the past year or so and that’s why I chose to focus this video on my scene as opposed to traveling around Texas covering ppl from other cities (like I did with Dag Days). This is my extended family and I absolutely love these doods. Best scene, right now (right now). – Anthony Medina.
Song: Fleetwood Mac – The Chain.
My original plan for this edit was to make a 2 parter, half Valo footage and half from my new Richie footage. Rather than let this footage collect dust (and because I’m just not too hyped on it), I decided to put this part out so I can focus on my Richie edit.
Hope ya dig. Thanks to everybody who held me down behind the camera. Hugs & kisses. XOXO – Anthony Medina.
