Classic Skate Part - Gino Iannucci - Trilogy
Posted by Alex Bohea on January 13, 2014
A new series on the Life At It’s Best blog is entitled ‘Classic Skate Part’ and it does just what it says on the tin. Every other week we’ll be bringing you a part in a skate video we think deserves the ‘classic’ title. Be it from twenty years ago or the present day, a good part in a skate video is an untouchable quality and few make the rank. Watching skater upon skater try, try, nearly kill themselves, try again and then land it just for our entertainment is always appreciated but it takes something a little bit special for a part to stick around, and be viewed over and over again.
Gino Iannucci, Long Island native, has few skate parts. He’s never really released enough footage to compliment how good he truly is on a skateboard. There are a few though, and this one from Trilogy which was released in 1996 and is a collaboration between World Industries, Blind and 101, is one of his best. You can’t help but notice Gino’s style which is flawlessly fast and back then, he was throwing out original tricks that hadn’t been seen often on video before. While it’s only just over a minute long, it’s worthy of the classic title and worthy of 82 seconds of your time.
