The Slam City Skates blog offers up a service to skateboarding today, having hit up Dan Magee to collaborate in uploading the best quality version of Blueprint Skateboards' seminal Waiting for the World currently available on the web.
Scott Palmer's Mama Cass-scored opening section alone is enough to remind you why skateboarding is the best, while what follows basically set the standard for UK street skating at the time...in other words drop what you're doing, put the kettle on and press play for Scott, Nick Jensen, Paul Shier, Mark Baines, Paul Carter, Carl Shipman, Channon King, Colin Kennedy, Andres Holguin, John Rattray and more...
"Dan Magee's seminal video for Blueprint Waiting For The World came out in 2000. We are stoked to be able to bring you this crystal clear digitised version of a stone cold classic. Seventeen years later and this one still holds up! It is the first video which gave UK skateboarding some shine on a wider scale.
It features the Blueprint team at the time consisting of Scott Palmer, Nick Jensen, Paul Shier, Mark Baines, Paul Carter, Carl Shipman, Channon King, Colin Kennedy, Andres Holguin and John Rattray.
The Octagon Wheels section features Adrian French, Ben Dominguez, Louis Slater, Jamie Bolland, Jacob Sawyer, David Holguin, Adam Lane, Seth Curtis, Joel Curtis, Matt Boulton, Mark Jackson, Toby Shuall, Alan Rushbrooke, Vaughan Baker, Gustav Eden, Greg Finch, Jake Hipwell, Ewan Bowman, Mark Skinner, Dan Callow, Mat Fowler, Billy Rohan and Nik Taylor.
Enjoy reminiscing with this one, it really set the standard for all other videos to follow."
