now this is a series i can relate to.
MY WAR!, the online video series on the THRASHER MAGAZINE YOUTUBE channel and website basically follows professional skateboarders pushing their boundaries and attempting often extremely technical and risky tricks. and failing. over and over again.
skateboarders recounting their battles include JAMIE THOMAS, AARON "JAWS" HOMOKI, CHRIS JOSLIN, SAMMY BACA, DANE BURMAN, MILES SILVAS, PEDRO DELFINO, JUSTIN "FIGGY" FIGUEROA and MILTON MARTINEZ among numerous others.
some of these tricks take multiple attempts over several years and multiple injuries. what translates is their drive and passion to see their goal through, despite the physical and mental consequences. i find it hard not to be inspired by that.
a show about failure. brilliant!
