Mark Gonzales Real to Reel 2

Mark Gonzales Releases Original “Real To Reel” Edit

The Gonz opens his personal vault to share director Dan Wolfe’s original edit of his epic section from REAL Skateboards’s 2001 gem “Real To Reel.” While the skating still makes it a mesmerizing segment, the montage of tricks stays the same. However, there is one major difference: the music.

In the video that dropped 13 years ago, Mark featured a track that he and fellow legendary skater Tommy Guerrero created together, “The Name Of This Poem,” while this edit sets his skating to Morrissey’s “My Love Life.” It is difficult to decide which edit is better; the two tracks are polar opposites, but both work wonderfully.

The real highlight of this edit surfacing is that we all get to rediscover some of The Gonz’s legendary skateboard artistry.
