Since it started, Lakai has constantly given amazing things to skateboarding. Between great shoes and epic videos, we’re always expecting a lot from them. With a whole bunch of new faces, the newest Lakai full length proved that they're still crushing it as hard as ever. With some amazing parts from Sebo Walker, Jon Sciano, Stevie Perez, Riley Hawk, and the rest of the crew along with a great soundtrack - this will be a video you watch more than once. We snapped away before and after the video to show you guys what the night looked like.

I’m not kidding. Evan had a bunch of rocks in his pockets. He is a child of the earth, I suppose…

Then as fast as he skates, Evan grabbed my camera and snapped J.T. and myself and was so in sync with the cosmic universe that he managed to steal J.T.’s flash.

Sebo Walker must have been buzzing off of what may have been his best part yet.

Rick and Mike took him down with ease. You can’t fuck with the master of horse play.
