Time Skateboards - ‘Tempo’ - 2000
Over the past year or so we have been unearthing (and more recently uploading) seminal Australian video parts from yesteryear. The first priority was to look at the more important international parts from Aussies. This post sees us entering an exciting era where we start to upload local parts. We will occasionally flick over to a worldwide-released part, but for now our mission is going to be uncovering some forgotten gems from our own shores. To begin with here we have none other than our events manager Andrew Currie in a Sydney-centric section from the Time Skateboards classic ‘Tempo’. ‘Tis filmed primarily by Christian West who was by far the deftest Oz lens man of his generation.
Cuzza was Gold Coast born and bred, but during the finale of last century he was firmly planted in Sydney. Him and a bunch of mates made a mass exodus from their beachside bliss and took to the streets, ramps and parks of Australia’s largest city. Alongside the likes of pedigree shredders: Al Boglio, Westy, Dion Kovac and Sebastian Steele, Cuzza analysed his new terrain and steadily dissected it.
Cuzza would catch the ferry into the city from Mosman and meet up with the gang and they would find spots everywhere in the CBD, in Cremorne, in Chatswood and North Sydney. This part sings because it is real street skating. Fluid, power lines through the city streets including all kinds of raw obstacles, hit with polished basics and some flat ground thrown in for good measure.
