There are few people on this earth more responsible for the transcendence of music, art, film, fashion, and gender roles to all walks of life than David Bowie. The world lost the Starman on January 10, 2016 to a bout of cancer but his legacy will most certainly live on longer than all of us.
More specifically, his music has fueled generations of skaters, snowboarders, and surfers alike. Always reinventing and never satisfied with what he had just done, his was a life of innovation that continually challenged the status quo.
Skate, snow, and surf parts with David Bowie songs are some of the most memorable we've encountered. Bowie tracks have been sparingly used through these genres of videos, as if you're using a Bowie song it better be a f—king part that's going to push for part of the year.
With that said, here are the 7 best parts of our time that paired their months of stacked clips with the everlasting sounds Bowie. Goodnight and rest in peace, Starman.
And got a bunch of top-notch skaters to skate it
WeSC is happy to welcome skateboarder and photographer Arto Saari to the WeActivist family! Check out his short welcome video of Arto skating his own backyard pool.
French Fred was behind the camera when some of the most important skate videos like éS's "Menikmati" and Flip's "Sorry." were filmed. Now he is sharing that footage with the world. The teaser for Thrasher's new series "Behind the French Fred Scenes" just went up and it shows some of the crazy moments from the early 2000s featuring Eric Koston, Arto Saari, Geoff Rowley, Ali Boulala, and lots of others.
As Geoff Rowley says, sometimes "The easiest way out is to smash something."
