The Search for Natas Kaupas with Mason Silva

When I was a kid, one of the first skate videos I saw was Santa Cruz’s Streets on Fire. ┬áThe first section of that vid has Natas Kaupas skating around Santa Monica, which blew me and my friends away. He did so many tricks in that part no one had ever seen before. My friends and I tried to imitate Natas when we went around skating our neighbourhoods. Anyways, turns out that part had a profound effect on a lot of people and Natas was truly years ahead of everyone else. Thirty some odd years later Real has returned to Santa Monica to make a homage to Natas with Mason Silva. Watch that above and have a watch again Natas’ part down below, and then go try to spin on top of a fire hydrant.
