Cult has been releasing sections from their Small Talk DVD, and this week we get treated to a mix part from global Cult riders, starting with our very own Luke Santucci. Captain of the Gleam Team Supreme holds down the first minute of this mix with his signature style from some time he spent down in California. The bump whip at 0:51 was exceptionally nice.
This is a slight departure from Canadian content, but since I have the advantage of getting it first (by virtue of living a few hours across the border) I’ll post a few things I liked about this video before it lands in Canada.
Spots. I love the abundance of East Coast spots in Talk is Cheap. They have a look to them that works really well with street footage, and there’s a great mix of recognizable classics and new finds.
“It has the vibe of like, Endless Summer.” (That was my wife’s review…. I bet the Cult guys would be stoked on that.)
Alex Kennedy. This one was a surprise to me. He does a bunch of combos I’ve never seen before and he makes everything look really good.
Editing/Music choice. Riding videos have a tendency to turn into a barrage of fast paced clips an sections. Navaz slows things down a bit an lets a bunch of clips run long. This adds an authentic feel to the video, and it fits really well with the eclectic and generally low-key music choices.
Dakota Roche’s behemouth of a nine minute section. This was always going to be an amazing section. It’s pretty clear that both Navaz and Dakota were commited to making this section one of the best in recent memory.
Most people won’t need convincing to pick this one up, but get stoked, this is one for the ages.
