If you haven’t been following Eli Reed recently and his rampage on Jersey barriers and gritty Lower East Side streets, then here is your chance to be amazed.
We’ve been talking to Beckyfactory who recently cooked up this edit featuring some of Eli Reed’s most recent footy from the ‘gram, plus some unseen extras. Set to the smooth sounds of Sade, we were blown away by a lot of these clips and how easy Eli makes them look. If you’ve ever tried to jam up a Jersey barrier, then you know how finicky each different one can be, but Eli hits ’em all as if they were perfect quarter pipes. It might not be a perfectly filmed, VX or HD super serious skate part, but that’s exactly why we like it.

This is awesome. It would fit perfectly as someone just happening to be skating New York in the background of some PBS special from the 90s or one of the field trip clips from Mr. Rogers or something, very cultured looking, and I mean that in the best way possible. Also, few can pull off overalls so well.
