Amazing night! Thank you Kingswell for hosting our video submission contest for Red Bull Skate as well as a big nod to our 30 years of Stereo! Big love to everyone that has been a part our journey & those that came out to show support! Forever grateful!I can’t believe it’s been 30 years. We launched Stereo in 1992, we mapped it out when I was 19 and Jason was 21. It was unique, but I had no idea it would last three decades and beyond. Thank you to anyone who’s shown us love and support or bought one of our products. We’re still here because of YOU. Boom!- Chris Pastras

The video is written, produced and directed by Stereo founders Jason Lee and Chris Pastras. Throughout the video, abstract and eclectic still frames are intermingled with color and black and white footage of skating. The soundtrack is a pure jazz lineup from Ululation and Tommy Guerrero. Going against the grain with the use of 8mm film, black and white still photography and avant-garde music, the...
