Manhattan Days || A film by Pontus Alv for Converse Cons
In follow up to last years beautifully shot Trocadero Days, skateboarder Pontus Alv and Converse CONS have teamed up once more, this time taking to the streets of New York City for a new short black-and-white film called Manhattan Days. Alv and his Polar Skate Co. team arrived in the city complete with DIY painted jump ramps and shopping carts, making the most of every street and building makeshift spots where they could.
The enjoyable video is a welcome relief from the Street League-esque skate videos which are abundant on the internet these days, embodying what skateboarding is all about - messing around with your friends and having fun. Skateboarders include Aaron Herrington, Kevin Rodrigues, David Stenström, Jerome Campbell, Dane Brady and Pontus himself.
