Video: Independence Day Edit

Officially, this video is probably one of the more epic and badass edits we’ve ever done. Yes, that’s due in part to the fact that we used one of the most epicly American songs ever — Kenny Loggin’s “Danger Zone” (featured in one of the most American/best movies ever created, “Top Gun” with Tom Cruise) — to create a visual and audio experience that will leave you pumped up and ready to kick some asphalt arse. What else does it contain? American flags and Americans enjoying two of the most enjoyable things in life: tasty weather and a mid-week holiday. If that doesn’t leave you so stoked for this edit, I’m not sure anything will.

Riders are myself (Mike DiPietro), Ryan Howard (of the former Northern Skate Alliance) and Tyler Gallagi. Setups below the video.


  • Mike DiPietro: Bustin EQ on 50* Calibers and Duval Hurricane wheels.
  • Ryan Howard: Ryane Baby Killer on 45* Surf-Rodz RKPs and S9 Raceform “tires” (as Ryan calls them).
  • Tyler Gallagi: Jaiti on 50* Prandalls (Paris Baseplate/Randall Hanger) and 85a Tsunami Rain Skates wheels.
