Bryan Bell‘s late 90s video “My Daily Routine” is a certified classic. It’s the perfect place to kick off a column about blade treasures from the past.
“My Daily Routine” looks exactly like what it is, a bunch of friends going out and fucking around with a video camera. It makes skating look like a lot of fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously. It is full of shots filmed with poorly-sized fisheye lenses, lines on small ledges and benches, 360s off of curbs, graffiti, break dancing, booty shakin, boozing, fights, enough mushroom blading to make those guys from Vancouver proud, homemade bombs, and plenty of other shit to make your mom upset that she bought it for you.

This video has Mr Burke, some proto free-skiing and a lot of legendary tricks. A must experience even by today’s standards.

“Even years later when the tricks have progressed and the sport has evolved VG4 will be a video you can always go back to and remember why it is you skate”
