Foundation "Oddity" Premiere Photos
Foundation has done it once again. They made another full-length video to add to their library. In an age of overly-produced video shorts, the F troop kept it true to the core and stuck with the tried-and-true formula with a half-hour video of straight hammers. No gimbals, drones or helicopters, just good ol' follow filming on a cruiser board. Sure, it’s filmed in HD but the production screams lo-fi at its finest, right down to the punk-rock soundtrack. Exactly what you expect from Foundation: skateboarding at it’s best, pure and simple. —Joe Hammeke

Most of the Foundation team in one place. Cole Wilson and Duffel were nowhere to be found. Duffel said he hasn’t been in a team photo in five years, so I guess this is nothing new
Then Ryan Spencer went berzerk
You okay, buddy?
Dakota didn’t get off so easy and was taken outside
That’s all and good night. Amazing job by Don and the boys. Full parts dropping on thrashermagazine.com starting Feb 13th!
