As Allen Fuqua travels around, he looks for movie locations and attempts to duplicate scenes from them. For instance, here's Allen and a friend reenacting a scene from Drive:

John Lyke at SugarbushMar 21 2012

Chris sent me this crazy technical snowboard video of John Lyke riding the rail at Sugarbush. I like it. I like that it says it's inspired by the film Drive. More snowboard videos of awesome tricks should be inspired by the film Drive.

Is there a definitive explanation as to why skate/BMX/snowboarding videos usually start with a couple scenes of someone falling down? I have a theory, but curious what you think. Let me know.
