If we’d gotten this tape out when we originally planned to, next to our sober Baker 3 thoughts and drunk Baker 4 photos, we would’ve had a fully “Baker! Baker! Baker!” week on the site. But we still got it out today so at least there’s that…
Hopefully this Raspa Tape conveys the excitement around the Baker video, which aside maybe from Mark Suciu’s Verso or the inevitable footage of someone skating on a Tesla Cybertruck, was the year’s most hyped up video.
The night of the premiere turned into a sort of never-ending reunion with a lot of people in and around the California skate industry who we don’t see often and only come out for once-in-a-lifetime stuff like a new Baker video. Then the next day we met up with T-Funk to grill tacos (?) at a park and bum out the residents of a quiet little community by bombing their hilly streets.
Click the play button for the night vision/dad cam shots of people giving their drunken Baker 4 predictions, but stick around for the clip of Raspa slamming on a hill bomb.
