Nike SB Trust Fall by Jacob Harris, Ant Travis and Aaron Meza

Friday, July 5th, 2019

 

 

The latest piece from the Swoosh media machine premiered last week in London and as anticipated, Nike SB Trust Fall by Jacob Harris definitely lived up to the high expectations created by the roster of skaters and filmers involved. Clocking in at 23 minutes, Nike SB Trust Fall drops neatly into the category of a clip that would’ve constituted a full-length video release only a few years ago and delivers a package that crosses various boundaries within the immense Nike SB team universe.
Obviously we’re stoked to see fellow Brits Casper Brooker and Kyron Davis get some heavy repping in this one and both of them more than come through with serious skating up to par with the offerings of the various other Swoosh luminaries featured.

 

 

Part window into some of the (globally at least) lesser known members of the Swoosh army, part hype for the tenth anniversary of the iconic Janoski shoe – Trust Fall is one of those clips not hobbled by the inevitably throw away nature of Internet content. This is obviously due to the skating featured, but also definitely down to the calibre of filmers and editors involved too, not to mention a very diverse and, some might say, unexpected soundtrack given the fact that it’s a Nike SB piece.

 

 

Atlantic Drift‘s maestro Jacob Harris filmed the majority of it, with US based support from Ant Travis, along with contributions from Nike SB core crew mainstay Johnny Wilson so it’s low on the over-rinsed handrail NBD’s and Sci-Fi camera set ups and very high on the crusty spots/spontaneous street vibes. Additionally, with Crailtap/FTC/Viceland alumni Aaron Meza pitching in as overall project lead, Trust Fall has a proper sense of cohesion often missing from these montage-heavy shoe brand pieces.

(If you’re not sure who Aaron Meza is, then go watch the FTC video Penal Code 100a right now for an introduction to just one of the numerous iconic 90’s skate video that Mr Meza has been responsible for over the last three decades.)

 

 

Standouts for us were Casper’s ridiculously popped 360 flip in the line, Kyron’s back up varial heel (complete with Mike Arnold champagne BGP’s) and Sean Malto‘s unthinkably impossible nollie flip over the Meanwhile 2 Gonz Gap. With that said – those are just three of the bangers lurking within this bastard so, if you haven’t watched it already – do so now. If you need further convincing, how does this line up sound?
Blake Carpenter, Daan Van Der Linden, Donovon Piscopo, Kyron Davis, Caleb Barnett, Casper Brooker, Karsten Kleppan, Cyrus Bennett, Max Palmer, Sean Malto, Andrew Wilson, Nik Stain and Stefan Janoski.
Heavy, heavy business…Nike SB Trust Fall is going to be on repeat for us for a while.

If you fancy finding out more regarding the filming and editing process, and reading about some of the behind-the-scenes stories related to the making of this one, then head over to the Free Mag site and read Ryan Gray’s interview with Casper Brooker and Jacob Harris that dropped on Monday.
