Steve Durante in The Militia
« on: September 06, 2009, 10:51:27 PM »
I started skating about 10 years ago in South Jersey. This was one of the first videos I saw starring a few local skaters who called them selves the Militia. It was starring Devon Conell, Matt Henry, Ki Realer, Matt Newett, JR Henry, Anthony Mazzone, Greg Simmons, and Steve Durante had the last part. It was copied hundreds of times and passed from homie to homie. Still one of my favorite vids today. And this is when Steve D became one of my favorite skaters.

reminds me of a vhs video i had like 8 years ago from a local shop here called innerlight surf and skate in pensacola, florida.  it was called "all of the sudden."  had a sierra fellers part in it before he made it on well known companies.  wish i could find it but it's probably long gone.

durante's kickflip crooks on thst wooden bench is hilarious....just goes to show how kids on the east coast are always struggling to find a good ledge spot!

I recognized a couple of spots in those clips that I grew up skating.

Steve's Aenertia shirt made me laugh, that shop used to be around me before it closed down.

Rip the rest of that shit, I wanna see Ki, Matt, and Devon's parts

god i loved those, and the getz 1's in the maroon and white colorway, i remember when those weren't even out yet and you'd see dudes rocking them at Love...those 2 shoes just bring back the good old days in philly.   

 nollie heel crooks and 3flip noseslides way back then, dayyuum, steve d still skates the same way, raw power

He was only like 15 in all of these clips. I always loved the kickflip noseslide 270 shuvit, nollie flip noseslide down the little manahawkin hubba, and the noseslide nollie heel out at the end. this video is probably the reason that my favorite trick to see is back noseslide 270 shuvit out. Hopefully somebody puts up Devon's part soon. Crazy tech back in the day

I would love to see the rest of them. Too bad Devon hates having his video parts on the internet..I'd love to see.
