ALTERNATE ANGLE : RLM unseen footage

ALTERNATE ANGLE from Central Skate Co on Vimeo.

Jay García along with a crew headed out to China in 2006 to film for Chico’s 411VM issue. One of the last minute addition to the crew was Robert Lopez Mont ( El Destroyer ), virtually unknown to the crew except for Anthony Claravall and Chico that had help him by lodging him in LA.

Robert is an amazingly gnarly skater, 5 hours after he flew for 12 hours he had 3 solid bangers under his belt and the rest of us that had an extra day had nothing. I remember after the front nose slide that came after a 1st try 50-50 at like 9 in the morning on his 1st day out Jerry Hsu saying ” Who is this guy ”
Here some unseen footage from that trip.

Beta Bodega is an electronic record label, based in Miami, Florida, USA. Founded in 1999 by designer and music enthusiast La Mano Fria to inform and address current matters in Latin America while bringing about awareness through design and music. The original label spawned through the time into three separate labels; Beta Bodega, Rice And Beans and Botanica Del Jibaro, giving birth to Beta Bodega Coalition (BBC). Beta Bodega was deactivated in 2005, together with Rice And Beans (which became t-shirt line again in 2006) and its special series label Rise And Defeat. Nowadays, Beta Bodega Coalition operates two labels; Botanica Del Jibaro and Arepaz, alongside with special project Bandeja Paisa and BBC chapters in Europe and Japan; Project: Mooncircle and RL66. After a few years absence, 2012 saw the split release between Beta Bodega and long time allie Schematic. Currently releasing and in support of projects such as Infiltrate Zine.
