If you’ve fallen victim to the Instagram life hoover then you will already know that Chico Brenes is one of the most active and life-affirming OG pro posters on there.
Barely a day goes by without Cheeks dropping some silky-smooth footage at one of the many infamous SF spots that he seems to still skate on the regular.
With that in mind, and before we get into the Crailtap ‘Slice of Life’ clip below, go drop Chico a follow @chicobrenes – we can guarantee it’ll make your daily Insta routine better.
The clip in question follows Chico around San Francisco on a average day, which despite being a fairly standard format, is, due to Chico’s infectious personality and sense of humour, a really enjoyable watch. Things kick off at Potrero skatepark, followed by a roll through the Mission District with a quick stop off to skate a very, very OG skate spot (made famous by Mic-E Reyes among others). Chuck in a few jibes about the gentrification of SF and the tech-interloper’s embrace of the toned-down ‘edginess’ of the city, then we’re off to Fort Miley, yet another timeless San Francisco skate spot, with none other than last week’s Sunday Service recipient and all-round legend Elissa Steamer.
Fittingly, the clip ends up at what’s left of EMB, or the Justin Herman Plaza for the pedants among you: Chico provides funny commentary throughout, a brace of trademark flawless flatland and introduces a few SF locals along the way.
All in all – a nice engaging clip more than worth 5 minutes of your Friday.
