Mahalos Live Skateboard Media for posting 'Chout'! Live posts only the videos worth watching in the bombardment of web videos we get today, on top of exclusive interviews and videos. They're from France and they have a refined taste for quality skateboarding. If you want to watch all the videos, crap and all, go to Hella Clips, but if you want to know what's good, follow Live.
Chout is our last full-length short promotional film for Maui. Like the rest of our videos, it features the best skateboarders on the island. This video is all the good stuff we've gotten since 'Fast Kine' and then some. Actually, some of it was shot during shooting for Fast Kine while my vx1000 was broken. All the boys went for broke and got broke filming for this, but Sam redefined that old saying "go for broke" because he went even after he was broken.
I was actually going to hold off on posting this and print copies of it to DVD, but I thought, going to the movies based on that awesome trailer you seen last year and paying $10 only to get shit smeared in your brain isn't fun. This is why content should be free. People should choose if they want to sit in shit. This is why we made it so you can sample it on the YouTube, and then if you're feeling generous, you can support us by buying a digital download here. It's only $1 and you can always whenever without needing to go to our YouTube page or dealing with stupid ads. It's all in good fun and we're gonna be skateboarding and making videos regardless, but you can help us to cover the costs that went into making this video like gas $, memory cards, camera equipment, #1 BBQ, etc. so we can keep making videos and inspiring others to do the same. - Kale K
Shota went to Maui for a weekend skate-cation last month and we filmed this little clip. I was there to gather some essentials I left behind (some of which still got left behind...) and to see my good friend Derek from my hana bata days, who was back from Cali for a wedding. Derek was one of my best friends growing up and was actually the one who introduced me to skateboarding and videography. In a way, he's the forefather of Moke Life, just like surfing (which came from Hawaiians) is the forefather to skateboarding. If you didn't know, Hawaiians are the main reason skateboarding exists. If never have Hawaiians, The Berrics, Street League, X-Games, all these corporations invested into skateboarding wouldn't have manifested itself because surfing, a past time for Hawaiian royalty, would have never been discovered and those Z-Boyz never would have transitioned from surfing waves to surfing asphalt and concrete. You're welcome for the history lesson, skateboarding, and by further extension snowboarding too. The present wouldn't be without its history. Can't wait to cruz with all the boys again, two days was way too short a stay on Maui. You need at least four just to get a taste. Only got to sample small kine but da bugga was supah 'ono! - Kale K
A fresh start was in order so I decided to change the whole site up. A sporadic move to Oahu got me working in overdrive compared to the effort I put forth on Maui. Easy access to cheap pakalolo wasn't helping me and I was cruzing waay too hard. It made me realize Maui is a time capsule and that I needed a change of scenery. Surprisingly, the boys and I managed to finish a new video entitled 'Chout' and we printed a new shirt. We only have a few larges and x-larges left so get them while you can. Our new video 'Chout' will go live Monday so spread the word. Shooots - Kale K
