I realize now that the Vancouver-based Zenga Bros were behind one of my favourite local skate vids of all time. It’s no wonder that “Skate Heads” was also filmed and directed by the four-brother-team. The video was created though an ongoing collaboration between Booooooom and Flexfit that is dedicated to giving emerging creators a chance to turn their dream projects into reality.
The Zenga Bros themselves put it best:
“Skate Heads was a way to combine a bunch of things we really like: mobile living spaces, DIY skateboarding and ECCENTRIFING THE WORLD! It’s about bringing something unexpected into the streets and having a rad time.
Skateboarding is inherently about adapting and repurposing the urban landscape, but somehow even skateboarding can settle into a complacent state, where certain approaches become the norm. When street skating first started it was weird and abrasive, and that’ll always be there with wheels rattling down the sidewalk, but it’s good to remind ourselves to maintain a sense of foolishness, exploration and wonder; that is skateboarding. For us, making a backyard ramp was the ultimate form of creating our own adventure playground. Skate Heads has been a continuation of that.”
