There’s something special about watching and re-watching skate videos from years ago. Styles shift and we find ourselves laughing at (or perhaps longing for and looking to recreate) what once was. Technology improves and we wonder why we didn’t think of this-or-that sooner. Visions of what skateboarding is somehow shift and align with “what’s right”, and Comet Skateboards drops a video that says “I told you so.” Well, they’re not exactly the type to gloat, so I’m just doing it for them: the Comet crew has been around — skating all-the-things — since way back and the recently re-dropped Comet Roots proves it. Back when you were still working “that one job”, or perhaps back when you were still struggling to get a grip on simple algebra (No need to be ashamed, dude, you were barely fourteen and you had other things on your mind) Comet was throwing down some rad gnar-gnar flippity-dos and mobbing phat hillz back-to-back-to-back. Have a look-see at what was going down with the Comet crew back when Nickelback still somehow had way too much airtime.
And now, a relevant blurb from the video’s YouTube page:
The crew depicted here still hangs out together in the Bay Area and have continued to inspire the Comet brand for close to a decade now. Currently, Jeff McDonough is working with us on a line of shredable wooden objects TBD and Noah Sakamoto has a model in our guest series. http://store.cometskateboards.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=29
