I approve this thread.
Whenever there's talk of Busenitz, I always remember some throw away clip from an LA trip years ago where he casually ollies about 10 decent sized dirt gaps whilst bombing a hill. Never found thew footage agin though...

Roll Forever... I helped pick that song for Dennis. One of the best moments of my career working in skating/film shit. I still love that edit so much and Dennis is still one of the sickest ever.

Helped pick the Old Canes song? Was the “rights to Biggie?” thing just a random clip that led to the re-edit?

That was just footage they shot when they did that lineup thing with the crew. IIRC, basically, they didnt have a song, Dennis didnt like a lot of stuff, but everyone really liked the Old Canes song after I played it. I felt like it matched his skating really well. I did a lot of music in that era's videos, but I never felt like anything I got to chime in on was as good as that matchup for his style. He's frenetic and so is that song.

Aw thanks man. Appreciate it. I've got a couple of homeys from the old DLX message board who still bring it up once in awhile. Feels cool to have contributed a small piece to what in my mind is a really cool part for one of the best ATV skaters of all time. I mean really lots of songs would work when the skating is that good.

Great pick. It does fit his skating, I’m just terribly partial to that one song. Some other of those music picks would make for a great post/thread if you’d ever indulge

Thanks! Not into highlighting that part of my life all that much. But lots of videos from that era are on the books as stuff I worked on, either picking music or just clearing the rights. Its really nice to see it appreciated from afar. This is one I dont mind celebrating.

Does anyone know where the footage is of this? Some Adidas edit maybe?

I swear I saw him one day as I was walking around Paris and I looked in his face and I kind of made a face like "I know who you are... I think" and he looked down at my shoes, which were heavily skated Busenitz's and he looked back at me in the eyes and kind of smirked. I swear it was him but I'll never know.

I think there was some reason that the Adidas team was in Paris during this time.

I think I tell this story every time there’s a Busenitz thread, but I was at Tampa when he won in 2011 and watching him was by far the best skateboarding I have ever witnessed in person. I’ll never forget the sheer electricity in the room as soon as his run was finished, but even when I got there kinda early he was just cruising laps around the park with the same intensity all day. Footy does not do him justice, which is saying a lot because his footage is great.
