If you follow independently released skate videos, you've probably (hopefully) seen Chris Burt's last two videos. In 2012 he released North Coast and in 2013 he came out with (attn dfct). Add together a regular cast of rad Minnesota-based skaters, soundtracks assembled from furthest reaches of Soundcloud, and the wild angles Chris can get by being well over six feet tall, and you get the formula that's made his videos stand out since the beginning. Needless to say we were stoked when we heard he was coming out with a new video.
Last night Chris Burt premiered that new video, entitled thnku, in Minneapolis. Unfortunately we are far from the Land of 10,000 Lakes and missed the premiere. Lucky for us, Chris is the coolest and let us get a sneak peak, and holy shit you guys, it is amazing. Here's a breakdown of what you can expect from thnku:
Mike Lemnitzer opens the video skating fast, doing street grabs, and sliding really far.
Second is Jack Olson showing us why he's Real's newest Am.
Andrew Ellison keeps it refreshing with 80% of his part filmed at spots we have not seen before. Should Bobby Puleo be concerned?
Dalton Jones sticks with what he does best and does a bunch of tricks we don't know how to label.
Nathan Cameron has the lightest feet around. He makes sure we all are convinced that our first look at his amazing skating in Debri2 wasn't a fluke and that he's here to stay.
TJ Moran manages to be a married man, a working man, and film multiple gnarly video parts all at the same time.
Finally, we have Pat Gallaher. This part marks the third video that Pat has closed out THIS YEAR (Debri2, Format's Monolith and now thnku). Pat has filmed a lot of video parts over the last decade and we can honestly say that this is his best part yet. We are so excited to see what this dude has in store for the future, because he just keeps getting better.
This video is wildly worth your 10 dollars and you can buy it right now, right here. Good work boys, and holy smokes we are stoked on how thnku turned out.
