Whether or not you’ve always followed Corey Duffel’s career, his skating was never something you could look away from.

But rather than let him end up on a list of “overlooked skateboarders,” we got together with our friend Joey Sinko to make this short film taking a second look at the slams, stories, and glory left behind by the Duffman.

Much more than a “best of” but not quite a Hulu documentary, this Jenkem Ode is a deeply personal dive into Corey’s life. Revisit the huge gaps and rails that made Corey’s career and broke many of his bones, and hear the behind the scenes tales of his incredible makes and gut-wrenching slams.

After months of scouring video parts, uncovering old footage, and interviewing Corey in a police interrogation-style room, Joey emerged with “Manimal.” It may sound like the title of either a sick ’80s TV show or downright bestiality, but it’s instead a powerful meditation of skating’s number one punk.

If your teenage hormones resurface at the thought of the Duffman, or you’re unaware of the recklessness he puts himself through, “Manimal” will be a wild ride.

    Hey JENKEM, just a thought: since you are a private entity and not a government with a bill of rights to uphold feel to scrape the gutless hate-speech trolls off the underbelly of your masterpiece here. Corey is good at taking the high road, but even so he deserves better than to have to swat flies off his career because of Big Brother’s self-serving shenanigans of 20 years ago. Just do it this once as we look away, and these forums can go back to being a platform for edifying dialogue tomorrow.

    ps. To the trolls eager to reply, breathe, then go to bed before your pathetically triggered ignorance gets the better of you again.
