This will be unlike any skate video you've ever seen
If you've got a spare 12-minutes-and-43-seconds you should do yourself a favor and watch this biopic on Paul Rodriguez. He's certainly forged his own path within the skateboard world and with the somewhat recent move of leaving Plan B for his own Primitive brand, it's a great moment in his career to hear some of his thoughts on his career arc. Plus, there's always footage of him skating all along the way, which ain't too shabby.
Watch the full edit of pro skateboarder Paul Rodriguez recreating his first video part from the 2001 City Stars release "Street Cinema." The new 2013 footage shot at The Berrics appears side by side with the original 2001 footage. P-Rod along with his original filmer Heath Brinkley shot all 48-tricks including the main shot in 24-hours.

Dose went to check out the practice session and captured a dope edit of Cole, Paul Rodriguez, Nyjah Huston, Sean Malto, Luan Oliveira, Torey Pudwill, Mikey Taylor, and Shane O'Neill throwing down.
