These days, it's a foregone conclusion that a modern video part will involve extensive international travel. The search for spots that are rarely touched and exotic is sometimes taken as seriously as the clip itself. Daniel Lutheran's PUSH filming missions include a first-time trip to Spain, where he quickly found his zone.
In his third episode of PUSH, it becomes clear that from a very early age Dan Lu had unlocked some mysterious door leading to self-discovery. He's been able to achieve every life goal that he set as a kid—even realizing those pie-in-the-sky dreams that always seem to exist just on the periphery of your imagination as you grow up—simply by understanding himself in a deeper sense. Here you'll get to meet his family and learn that, even though he may seem to not have a care in the world, Dan Lu is curiously driven.
With new parts from Daniel Lutheran, Blake Carpenter, Miles Silvas, Leo Romero, Brandon Biebel, Tommy Fynn, Curren Caples, and Nick Tucker coming soon, take a look at unreleased footage from the filming of their PUSH projects. The epilogue features interviews with Tony Hawk, Mike Sinclair, Arto Saari, Ed Templeton, and Heath Kirchart.
You'd be hard pressed to find a skater as outwardly positive as Daniel Lutheran. Momentarily paralyzed by his anesthetic smile, you begin to wonder whether he's putting you on. But it's no prank: Dan Lu is genuinely happy and curiously open to experience, leading the rest of us to believe that we're just not getting enough out of our lives. Dan Lu gets it. But just once we'd like to see him lose his shit.
