We filmed for this video for a little over 5 months. I wanted to put a deadline on filming for this video b/c 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. Thanks to every1 involved, whether you skated in the video or did behind the scenes work (especially this).
The video premiered May 1st. Hope you guys dig it. We worked hard and quick on this shit.

Join the Seaman and his ace Wolfman as they strategically rip and terrorize their own home territory in this action packed thrillride around the streets of San Francisco.
Towards the end of the day Mr. Sea and newly acquired pup say their goodbyes and push off shore heading towards the sunny City of Angels, however due to his exhaustion ends up falling asleep while rowing and is later apprehended and put in custody by police after washing up onshore of a local marine base (The story unfolds as he is later questioned by the public defender while in custody).
10 years ago there were some VHS tapes with ‘How To Be Unpopular’ scrawled on them sent out to people in Canada and the USA:
Awkwardness, forced cool, teenagers, bad boys, Mason and I jocking Jon Elliot, Brain Fear Gone influence, lacking identity, cheap imitations, insecurity, sliding things and jumping things, Dayna still being the best, Mason working really hard on his section, Todd jocking Josh Petty, weddings, parents still scratching their heads, pointless effects, ‘good skating’… etc.
This is ‘How To Be Unpopular’. The first in the trilogy of ‘Ok Buddy…’ and ‘Cirque Duh SOL EH?’.
Special thanks to StevieE. This video wouldn’t be what it was without him.
