Full Video | Introducing Puppets of Destiny, the fourth issue of the world’s only videomagazine series dedicated exclusively to street and vert skating.
VG4 is a tribute to the entire sport and all those who are a part of it. In each issue there is a theme with Videogroove being an introduction, VG2 18 Days being the trek across America’s underground skate scene, VG3’s Not a Word speaking for itself, and now Puppets of Destiny leave you to figure it out.
Puppets of Destiny is your guide to life, even years later when the tricks have progressed and the sport has evolved VG4 will be a video you can always go back to remember why it is that you skate. From the music, to the skaters to the filming, there is a message in every minute and we hope you read it loud and clear.

Written and directed by industry pioneer Arlo Eisenberg, edited by rollerblading’s most influential filmmaker Joe Navran (FOR II, Elements, Coup De Tat) and produced by Mindgame‘s Shane Coburn, “What Do You Believe In?” set out to completely re-imagine what a rollerblading video could be.
“What Do You Believe In?” features five of the brightest stars in rollerblading: Brian Shima, Jon Elliott, Josh Petty, Rachard Johnson, and Jaren Grob. The video focuses on their skating, which is some of the best ever captured on film, but it is complemented by a surreal story line which weaves in and out of their sections.
“What Do You Believe In?” is not a narrative story in the conventional sense, nor is it a standard skate video neatly divided into rider’s sections. It is a low budget, experimental, artistic interpretation of skating that does not merely break all of the rules but seems to be completely unaware of them altogether.
The skating alone would rank “What Do You Believe In?” among the best videos ever made, but add to that its artistic vision and its fearless conviction to add something completely new to the rollerblading landscape and what you’ve got is an instant classic. “What Do You Believe In?” is a landmark video and a must have for any rollerbladers collection.
