Skate Video of the Week: In The Details

On the Lord’s day, #OnTheGrind calls out a new skate edit that slapped us out of our boredom during the work week and reminded us why we were born to roll, and we share it with you. 

Filmer and skateboard enthusiast Jeremy McNamara captures the existential spirit of seeking joy through riding with the new indie film “In The Details.” No celebrities, no lo-fi film trends, and no fuss cuts straight to the heart of his matter, pushing with the buddies that he grew up skating with. Throw in his insane balance of compelling action and captivating composition, and the man strikes a very collective chord with this one.

Though mostly filmed out West in cities like San Francisco and Portland, there’s no sense of skate spot territory (real or imagined), urgency, unnecessary humor, pretentiousness, or specific style of anything — just great cinematography and dedication to the craft. It’s all laden over a few indie rock tunes that don’t hold you prisoner to any pre-determined mindset. But what’s most freeing with this video are the philosophical gems thrown in between the riding, like the introductory words, the anti-authoritarian break at the 4:23 point and the conclusion’s sound bytes about the ethereal nature of recollection and inspiration. The theme is evident. Good, bad, righteous, or gnarly, God is definitely in the skateboarding. Thank you for this one Jeremy!
