You are seriously missing out if you haven’t checked out John Cardiels Epicly Later’d saga. Epicly Later’d is a web-type documentary show turned television show. It started out profiling various professional and amateur skateboarders in depth, sort of a behind the scenes into there lives. The most recent being the legend himself, Mr. John Cardiel. You get the full scoop on his accident and the history behind the man himself. It is incredibly well put together and a must see for any skateboarder.
If you skateboard, you seriously need to see this documentary. Every skateboarder should be aware of who John Cardiel is and what he has brought to the skateboarding world. There will never be another “Cards” in the industry. And now, as of what I hear, you can get a free DVD of the entire documentary with a purchase of his Vans shoes. I would assume this is for a limited time but the DVD itself is well worth buying on its own.
I watched the entire documentary on the Epicly Later’d website but of course the small screen on the computer cannot be held in comparison to a full fledged DVD. I don’t want to give away to many details into what the documentary goes into, but I guarantee that after you finish watching it you will feel inspired and have a greater respect for Cardiel. You can check out the episodes of Epicly Later’d online.
Rumor has it there is even bonus footage on the DVD version. One things for sure I need to get a hold of a hard copy to add to the collection.
