Fontijn of quarter 9 productions put together a DVD of the Dutch, Germans and Belgians riding the skateparks in The Netherlands. Spots visited are all of the XL Series (Heerlen, A'dam and Rotterdam), Zwolle, Deventer, Zaandam, Glanerbrug and Deventer. The footage ranges from 2002 - 2005 and there's a good chance that you made the video too. You see, Quarter 9 does not have a big rig to take people on board nor do they need a trailer to carry all the video equipment and lights. Consider RIDE of your LIFE a home production with a limited budget.
Still it shows a lot of the Dutch riding scene. Everyone can join the party and riding is more important than delivering. Having a good time is what counts. What does a 360-whip mean if you can't put a smile on your face? The MAP shows you how to get to all the spots from Zwolle. Music varies from Classics to Heavy and everything in between (Foo fighters, GangStarr, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Madball, Drowning Pool, Bad Religion, MC Solaar, Naughty by Nature, Bouncing Souls, BMX Bandits, Franz Ferdinand, Beastie Boys, Bob Marley, DJ Candela....).
We can only appreciate the time and effort that Quarter 9 productions put into this first video. There's a start for everything, who knows we'll be touring with them in a big rig in a few years to come.
Go Quarter 9 Go.
