The thing that always bothered me about “Day In The Life” sections is they always looked so planned and scripted. Like the camera guy comes in and “wakes the skater up,” they visit a couple cool spots, “accidentally” bump into all their homies, crack a beer, and fade to black.
So naturally (stupidly) for this segment, we did the total opposite. We figured we’d spend a couple of hours and hang out – whatever Keith was feeling that day, we would do it with him, whether that’s grabbing a drink, talking about girls, or grabbing another drink.
If you don’t know who Shredmaster Keith is, he’s that super stylish guy wearing some kind of animal print and a dangly earring who probably snaked you at LES Park. He grew up in the Bronx under some rocky circumstances but has found his unique flow and charm surviving in the streets and skateparks of the five boroughs.
Here’s a small glimpse of the time we spent with Keith skating New York’s LES park, harassing strangers at the seaport ledges, and enjoying some buttery-ass lobsters. This “Hanging Out With” comes with more skate clips than usual, so if you’ve never seen Shredmaster shred, it’s time to pop your cherry.
