I received an unexpected treat in my email inbox the other day from Miami filmer Mike Atwood. When I saw the title of the attachment I started to scratch my head, as the only words in the file name were “Chicken Wing”. Perplexed I opened the file in Quicktime and it soon made sense when a sling-clad skater appeared on my screen, banging out lines with one arm tied up like a straight jacket. I realized I was watching some never-before-seen
footage of an east coast maniac in his prime.
Mike Atwood told me that this, and a lot more, footage has been sitting on some old VHS mix tapes in his house for years and he recently dug this treat up from the great beyond after hanging out with the skater it features in Miami the other day. Thanks to Mike for hooking this up.
