Skateboarding website The Berrics, owned and run by Steve Berra and Eric Koston, have teamed up with sports drink manufacturer Gatorade to produce a short film entitled Go All Day. Set in your average American school, the clip starts at 7:58am and follows pro skateboarder Chaz Ortiz until 3:00pm when school if finally out. There was a brief lead up to the video a few weeks ago when one of The Berrics' staff suggesting a new idea to Steve Berra, which would star young Ortiz. Whether that was all set up and paid for by Gatorade we'll never know, but we don't really care, the filming in this video makes us instantly forget that it's basically one long advertisement.

If the YouTube video below gets taken down, you can watch the clip on The Berrics here.

This is the story of three adolescents, who made an unlikely discovery on the GDR’s crumbling tarmac: the skateboard. The board from America didn’t just become the fun epicenter of their last summers in East Germany, but also turned into a symbol for their autonomy in a decrepit “Regelstaat” that had lost touch with its citizens. A mix of staged scenes and archive footage allows us an unconventional look into the universe of the late GDR’s youth. The legend of East German skaters is the starting point for this unheard of story about fun, rebellion and the courage to be yourself.

After becoming the first ever skateboard world champion in 1977, aged 19, original Z-Boy Tony Alva shunned other major skate companies and set up his own - Alva Skates. The company was the first to be owned and run by a skateboarder, and by using Canadian maple plywood, they set new standards for deck manufacturing.

Four years ago however, the influential skateboarder hit rock bottom when his lifestyle became all too much. A new short film from Vans, entitled "Pass The Bucket", documents Alva's fight for sobriety after years of drug addiction and alcoholism and follows him on his new life direction. Watch below.
