Downloads of the Month: May

It's time for a fresh batch of downloads from your friends at Skate Sessions.

The winner of our first readers choice poll was none other than the Disney made-for-TV flick Brink! (1998). It is available for download in AVI, M4V, and MP4 formats as well as a link to my TPB account where you can download the lot.

Andy "Brink" Brinker and his in-line skating friends, who call themselves "Soul-Skaters" (meaning they skate for the fun of it, and not the money), clash with a group of sponsored skaters - Team X-Bladz. When Brink discovers his family is in financial trouble, he decides to go over to the dark side of skating and joins Team X-Bladz for 200 dollars a week. His friends, who don't know about Brink's situation, begin thinking of him as a sell-out. For a short while they will not even talk to him.
But, after Brink begins a job at a dog grooming shop named "Pup 'N Suds" he gets an advance in his paycheck enough to sponsor himself and his friends in a local competition under the name "Team Pup 'N Suds". Up until the competition day, his fellow teammates know nothing of his plan. On the day of the competition Brink reveals that he wants to sponsor his friends. They overcome their differences and realize that the only way to skate is with the help of Brink.

So, as friends once-again, they compete in the competition. At the end of the competition, it comes down to Brink and his rival, and former captain of X-Bladz, Val. Although Brink tries to skate fair, Val uses all of his dirty tricks to secure the win. However, these tricks do not work and Brink wins the race, and the competition.

Immediately after the race, Val is fired from X-Bladz. The owner of the team offers Brink the captain position of the team. But, being the great friend and team player he is, he decides to stick with his friends and remain a Soul-Skater.

We are also throwing in a bonus download this month, to go along with our featured contributor Brian Lewis of Create Originals post about his friend and business partner Hakeem Jimoh. We will be adding the Nature Skate Video - One - to the downloads list. The video also features the third head in CO, Billy O'Neill.

One covers all five boroughs (Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Manhattan, and Staten Island) and also features sections on Boschi Pope, Austin Paz, Rafael Herrera, Ramelle Knight, Tom Lipani, Billy O’Neill, Alex Nunez, Paul Cortez, Keith Morris, Franco Cammayo, Justin Brasco, and Dustin Halleran. The video also covers the first IMYTA New York competition.

The video will be available in AVI, M4V, and MP4 formats, a TPB batch download, and we are also embedding the Vimeo video right here for instant gratification. We are all about taking care of your needs here at Skate Sessions.
