Yes, it is possible to make a Portland skate video outside of skateparks
Portland, and really Oregon in general, has become synonymous with skateparks. There are so many of them in and around the city that you could spend over a week skating them without hitting the same one twice. This has resulted in a hugely overlooked street skating scene. Aside from the Pharmacy Video in 2006, there hasn’t been much street footage out of Stumptown. It is a shame because the gloomy skies, abundance of brick, and prevalance of moss give the city a very unique look. Well, here’s some good news. Slap recently put up a clip filmed by Tristan Brillanceau-Lewis called Portland Lines that shows the locals like Silas Baxter-Neal linking tricks around the city.
