Steve Steinmetz

“New Spot” Steve has been a friend of ours for three plus years now. He started off as a skating acquaintance and slowly began to hang out after skating. It wasn’t until a year or two after knowing Steve that we found out he skates by himself, even after he has skated with us. Even gnarlier, he films by himself on a tri-pod, but not just little pu$$y things. Sometimes big boy things.

Steve has been with us since Fester was a thought, and to where we are now, (The World Greatest Wheel Company). Being the main photographer we skate with and master mind of all Fester photos and GC photos as of recent, we have asked him to be the official Fester Photographer.

When he showed me this edit, I was shocked! I had no idea Steve was this skilled at skating. Even more, by himself. With the exception of 2 or 3 tricks this edit was filmed, edited, and skated by yours truly,”New Spot Steve” Steinmetz. We are proud to post this along with our team edits, and even more proud to flow Steve product and have him rep. Fester! -Damien Wilson.

Inline Skater Gets Owned Jumping Tennis Net

Break Video

The referee judged this one a fault since his balls hit the net and landed on his side of the court.

Thanks New Spot.

Update: The Skater in the Video is Steve Steinmetz. Here is a profile of him, and he successfully grinded that tennis tennis net finally ;)

quoting Steve Steinmetz, about his Edit:

This project took on many different forms. At first I wanted to just set up my tripod to get footage from around Encinitas and make an edit. Then I decided I wanted to document all my solo sessions and make an edit. Then just recently I felt like I should shorten my 5 minute edit and just use the best footage I had for a 3 min edit. This is the 3 minute edit. Filmed by me and edited by me. This took me appox 6 months and a lot of time and energy went into this project. The longer version will be up when I’m done filming.

I was the only one pressing record and setting up the tripod. Nobody was with me during any of these sessions except for at the Razors park.
