London-based skate company Palace Skateboards decided to spice things up and shoot a VHS skate video for superstar skater Shawn Powers. The sponsor wanted to give the video a grainy and nostalgic feel. Skate videos were huge in the 90s and perpetuated the sport to new heights. Skate videos featuring original skaters such as the Bones Brigade and big names such as Tony Hawk really altered the game.
Palace Skateboards wanted to go back in time and capture the essence of the original skate videos. The result is a gritty, low-fi film showcasing Powers travels, tricks and journey as a professional skater.
The Palace Skateboards VHS skate video for Shawn Powers is nostalgic and a return to the good old days.
