Everyone has a story. Everyone comes from somewhere. In his first episode of PUSH we head back to Virginia Beach, VA with @trevorcolden and friends so they can show us where it all began. Never forget where you're from and always know where you're going.
Filming a video part is hard. Filming two video parts in 5 months is damn near impossible. But as they say... Pressure will either break you or make you — the outcome is just a matter of perspective. So, for episode 2, we go back to downtown LA with Trevor Colden (@trevorcolden) to see how he's handling the stress of TWO looming deadlines. What's it gonna be?
There's no turning back once you get a trick in mind. You either get it or you don't. And if you don't, you keep going 'til you do. Try. Fail. Get up, find a new spot, try again. Trevor Colden has his mind set on one trick for his video part and won't stop until he gets it. Episode 4 documents the trials and tribulations of that process.
I would see Trevor around The Berrics every so often. He'd come in, skate for a few hours, then jam. I never really spoke to him, skated with him, or really even said hello until I sat down and asked him if he'd be in PUSH. He was definitely someone I felt we needed and was hoping we'd get, but I was also aware that he was filming for the Nike Chronicles video as well. Most people I know wouldn't try to take on two major video projects at once on top of everything else they have going on. Street League, Dew Tour, X-games, everyday living. Not Trevor. Trevor is that guy that represents that very small percentage of people that seem to have it all. You see this mostly in high school with the rich kids. They're handsome. They have nice cars. They have good looking girlfriends and lots of opportunities given to them achieved only through familial connections and accident of birth. Too often we find these young chaps down the road accomplishing little but having control over many and making decisions that even the worst of their employees wouldn't make. This curse of lineage is something Trevor hasn't been doomed with. He's had to earn each millimeter of ground he's gained with no family fortune or connections to support him. That's the difference between the world a lot of people we know choose to live in and the world we've created. There is no fake it till you make it. There is only make it because you've made it. Trevor Colden has made it on his own. - sb
