I’m only just becoming aware of John Green as a skate filmmaker. I learned it was his filming that debuted the new Brisbane based bearing company Commodore in their very hype inducing “Hype Squad” edit just last week. One part founder and operator of Parliament skateshop, an underground haven dug out of 303 Adelaide St in the heart of the CBD, John’s made another debut under the exclusive release of Slam Magazine in their shop’s first full-length video.
We had a Brisbane times article surface recently about the city’s late lack of interest in skateboarding under the quote “Brisbane ‘sucks’ if you’re a skateboarder in 2017”. I gassed briefly about this with John in-store and while the sentiment is mostly true, these locals in Paradise sure make an exception to that rule.
