Wheels of fire [Santa Cruz 1987]

Santa Cruz’s first video feature, “Wheels on Fire,” features skateboarding from legends like Christian Hosoi, Natas Kaupas, Steve Alba, and more.
Shot entirely on Super 8, the video features stunning slo-mo photography that helps to elevate the skateboarding to such a level that it can still be appreciated some thirty years later.
It’s signature “fire-burning” titles and colorful scratched film stills are nothing short of iconic.
