Girl And Chocolate Skateboards' Joint Skate Documentary Pretty Sweet Kicks Off Its World Tour
Andy Mueller has designed scores of decks for Girl Skateboards—awesome, clever graphics that end up getting marred and gashed minutes after the board is used correctly. There’s a temporary nature to skateboard designs, like Tibetan sand mandalas that are painstakingly crafted only to be cleared off their canvases to prove their impermanence. Enlightening.
Perhaps nearly as enlightening as watching two of the world’s most awesome skate teams tear up pavement across the world. That’s the rundown of Pretty Sweet, a new skateboarding documentary directed by Girl’s in-house filmmakers Ty Evans, Spike Jonze, and Cory Weincheque that features the Girl and Chocolate crews landing (and occasionally not landing) jaw-dropping tricks all over the globe, from Nicaragua, to Spain, to China, and back. Check out the trailer below.
The film premiered last Friday in L.A. with both teams present, along with scores of skate legends and aspiring skate legends in attendance and Tyler, The Creator introducing the film. The film premiered last night in New York City at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema with its own star-studded crowd including Mike D from the Beastie Boys, Michael Rapaport, and Kanye West, as well as director Spike Jonze and team riders Alex Olson, Eric Koston, Rick Howard, Mike Carroll, and Brian Anderson. The film will go on to travel the world through the beginning of December. Find the premiere closest to you here.
