We filmed for this video for a little over 5 months. I wanted to put a deadline on filming for this video because I wanted the footage to be as fresh as possible upon release.
It was a little stressful at times but overall it was a good experience and a lot of great memories and friendships came from it. – Anthony Medina.

Anthony Medina is selling copies of his latest video Dag Day at Bigcartel for $5.
He felt the same way and wanted to film another section. While it wasn’t always easy getting together, with the distance and our conflicting schedules, anytime we were able to film Ian got shit done as always.
Even though he wasn’t able to skate the last couple months of filming (first fall), we still had more than enough to get this part done. Enjoy. – Anthony Medina.
Song: Method Man, Ghostface Killa, & Raekwon – It’s That Wu Shit.
I’ve always wanted to work with Josh Glowicki. In the couple times (before we filmed this) that I got to film Glow, I was shocked at how professional and business-like the dood was.
When we had the idea of filming a section for this video, we knew it had to be filmed quickly because Glow was about to go on another extended trip to Europe (and neither of us really knew when he’d be back). Outside of just 3 clips, this section was filmed in 10 days. – Anthony Medina.

At a party in late March, Fritz Peitzner joked with me about filming a section for the video. At the time I thought nothing of it, just drunk talk.
Of course I wanted to do it, but the premiere was in May and I didn’t think we’d have enough time to get it done. After Rob, Ian, and Mason went down with injuries, I became worried the video wouldn’t be finished in time so I decided to hit Fritz up and take him up on his idea.
A couple of trips to Dallas and a couple of filming sessions in Austin later, he came through like a boss. – Anthony Medina.

If you’re not from Texas you’ve probably never heard of Ryan Rasmussen. In Texas however, Ryan is one of those guys you can’t get enough of and you always wonder why he doesn’t have more content out there.
Ryan makes everything look good and does it with ease. When I asked Ryan if he wanted to film a section, I knew it was a bit of a long shot because he’s really busy with school, but he came through and gave us what we wanted, a Ryan Rasmussen section. – Anthony Medina.

In the past year the Austin scene has been thriving. So many bladers from other cities are starting to gather here and the level of blading has gone up because of it.
In the past, every weekend it seemed like Mason Richard and I had to scrap to find 1 or 2 other guys to blade with, now we usually all gather together Friday nights and enter the weekend ready to get shit done (even if we do drink too much the night before).
When I started this video I wanted to focus on OUR scene for once as opposed to filming different bladers from different cities.
We’ve still been traveling non-stop but it’s nice to know you’re gonna be filming with the cast week in and week out. The Austin scene is the best it’s been in a while in my opinion and it’s bc of the guys in this video. – Anthony Medina

What can I say about Rob Zbranek? This is the 3rd video section we’ve done together and by far my favorite.
Just when Rob hits the age most bladers are either done or drastically declining, Rob seems to be more on point with his style and spot selection than ever.
Even though a bike wreck took him out of the last 2-3 months of filming, he was able to come through with this badass section. – Anthony Medina.

When Cody Sanders first moved to Austin we began filming for his section, but after his luck ran out couch surfing, he had to move back home due to lack of funds and a place to stay.
We put this edit out with what we had because we had no idea when he’d be back and finishing his section seemed far fetched at the time. Maybe a month later Cody came back…so we had to start over. Here’s the result. Enjoy. – Anthony Medina.

Over the last couple months we filmed here and there at multiple parks in Texas. Expect to see plenty more from Andrew soon. Enjoy. – Anthony Medina.
Song: Wanda Jackson & The Cramps – Funnel of Love.
Kevin Little held another Donate and Skate charitable competition to get kids into rollerblading in Conroe, Texas a couple of weekends back.
The admission charge to compete was a donation of skates, wheels, frames, liners, or pads that would go to kids trying to get into rollerblading but lacking the funds to do so.
We had a pretty large showing and there were a bunch of new kids on blades. Support Donate and Skate. Big thanks to Chaz Mac for holding down the fisheye. – Anthony Medina.
Song: Eric Burdon & The Animals – C.C. Rider.
The last of the Dag Days footage. In order to keep the video a reasonable length, I had to cut out some very usable clips, which you see here.
Additional Footage by Chaz Mac & Greg King. Song: Tame Impala – Apocalypse Dreams.
