This ones a nice taste of what it was like skateboarding in South Carolina 10 years ago. They recently held a reunion-repremiere down in Charleston and it was a pretty damn good time. Plenty of "oohs" and "ahhhs" and of course plenty of laughs about clothing choices in the mid-2000s. So here it is...Dirtbags, a film by Jack Abbot and Cory Wilkinson. Featuring Ty Brown, JT Gleason, Aaron Green, Chris Jacobs, Bill Pardee, CJ Ulm, Dusty Yauilla and more.
At one point during this chilly Saturday in December I heard someone remark, "I don't know why we didn't just call it King of Sunset Park the first year." Well, the moniker stuck anyways but it might be for good reason. These people, all friends and equals, are no kings at all. The only gold they surround themselves with comes packaged as a liquid in aluminum cans and glass bottles. They sit upon their pool coping thrones and rule over the backyard. These people would out-skate any ruler and drink any monarch under the damn table, so kings be damned. SPOTR is more fun than ruling a country anyways and significantly less likely to result in assassination or a coup d'etat. If you missed out, you severely missed out, but click this photo below and see more.
