Is What it is from Consolidated Skateboards, circa 1999. I really enjoy these earlier Consolidated videos. It has a really good mix of Street and Vert throughout each persons part.
More about Consolidated Skateboards after the jump!
You might know of Consolidated because of their “Don’t Do It” campaign against Nike and Sporting Goods Chains attempting to capitalize off of Skateboarding. Consolidated Skateboards was started in 1992 by Steve Guisinger(aka Birdo), Steve Keenan, and Leticia Ruano. They have managed to keep the company afloat this entire time, sometimes having to sacrifice their own paycheck to cover some of the riders.
Click Here from an explanation of the “Don’t Do It Army” from Birdo, Consolidated’s owner.

Well for those who dont know, selling shoes are one of the only things that helps keep independent shops in business, because we dont make shit on hardgoods. But on the other hand I do have an issue with Birdo making his decks in China and on the other hand leading the Dont Do It campaign. When other companies (tum yeto, Deluxe) making there shit USA.
They even have a Myspace page dedicated to the Don’t Do It Army.
