It seems that lately it's been a trend to put out short all skating videos with no filler. . Well I'm not complaining, and I don't think you will either . Zoo York's True East comes at you with some fast paced skateboarding perfection. I found it refreshing to see a video focusing on east coast spots . If your from the pittsburgh area you will even recognize some local spots if you pay close attention. The whole video shows that the Zoo York team can skate east coast spots with the best of them .

A couple of skaters stood out to me one of which was Chaz Ortiz who starts the video out with a flawless part. Chaz Ortiz's mastery of technical tricks on any spot shines through in this video . Most of the spots he hits most skater's would settle with just a bluntslide on, but Chaz takes it a step further and shows he can flip out of anything . Later on in the video(around 3:49) Forrest Kirby will make you want to watch his part over and over again . Let's be honest how many skaters pull a manual wallride out during their parts? Just when you think the video is about to end Brandon Westgate ends with a part full of bangers . If you've been paying attention to thrasher or any of the popular online media sources that deal in skateboarding you'll see Brandon blast an ollie on a spot with no run up. Yes the footage ends the video, and it's also in pittsburgh so it's up to you to find it.

All in all True East is a must watch for die hard east coast skaters.. For that matter it is a must watch for just about any street skater . So get online watch this video, and get some motivation to go out and skate !
