Theobalds Cap Co. & Henry Edwards-Wood Present Athletics

Get set for some lightning fast action in THEOBALDS CAP CO. & HENRY EDWARDS-WOOD PRESENT ATHLETICS, which takes inspiration from skateboarding’s recent entry into the Olympic Games.

Following on from the release of their film Dendridic Flux earlier this year, Theobalds Cap Co. join forces with filmmaker Henry Edwards-Wood once again to present Athletics – a skateboard film which explores the relationship between skateboarding and its introduction to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Comprising of footage shot across a few weekends in London, the short skate promo injects a healthy dose of parody into the mix, mimicking the overblown drama of Olympic events with lightning fast lines from Theobalds Cap Co. riders Jeremy Jones, Jake Bidmead, Joel Banner, Kyle Wilson, and Cam Barr, plus cameos from some familiar faces in the close-knit Southbank scene.

The video also lays focus on Long Live Southbank campaign’s new mission to unlock some currently unused parts of the undercroft which have been sealed off since 2004. Considered hallowed ground to everyone involved with the initiative, the charity is now looking to raise the funds needed to open up the Southbank further, and in the process, restore some of the area’s small banks and extend what the public space can offer to London’s burgeoning skate community.

 
Watch THEOBALDS CAP CO. & HENRY EDWARDS-WOOD PRESENT ATHLETICS above, and if you like what you see then head to llsbdonate.com where you can help to unlock the Undercroft. Whilst you’re at it, be sure to check the Theobalds Caps Athletics pack at all good skate shops, or online at theobaldscapco.co.uk.
