The SUICHI Crew from Spain had been on the road in California to visit the Arnette headquarters and skate with a bunch of Arnette team riders. Wonder how they got there? Well, in November 2010 they were announced as the winning crew from Arnette Europe's "IN YOUR FACE" video contest.
Here's a quick summary of the contest... Skateboarders from Germany, France, Spain and Italy were asked to team up with their buddies to submit their own skate footage and provide a rough idea of how they'd want their very own video part to look and feel.
From all the submissions received, four crews were selected to compete in the final round including: Goodstuff Crew (Germany), Les Bloby’s (France), SUICHI Crew (Spain), and ZUCKA Crew (Italy).
Each crew went filming with Felix Urbauer for a week around their local spots to collect a grip of footage which was then edited into a video. The four finished videos were shown at a legendary premiere party and they were then posted on Arnette Europe's Facebook page where fans voted on their favorite. After all the votes were cast, the people's choice was the SUICHI Crew comprised of Ales Amor, Gustavo Rodríguez and Damià Tesorero -- and the grand prize was a trip to the US!
When they got to Cali, they stopped by Arnette HQ and then headed over to the Etnies TF where they skated alongside Arnette team riders Ryan Decenzo, Pat Duffy, Willy Santos and Danny Supa. Here's an edit from their session. Enjoy!
