Weekly "Why Haven't I Seen This?"-9

With the plethora of skate footage that's out there, it can be easy to overlook things. And yet, so often we stumble upon a video that we've never heard of and find ourselves asking why we hadn't seen it before. Each week, I plan to post another lesser-known video that deserves more recognition, for your viewing pleasure.

It's kind of incredible to think about how long Justin Strubing has been skating at such a high level. Everything about his style is great and he chooses interesting tricks to do. He's one of the unsung heroes of the industry without a doubt, and over all he seems like a really good guy. The following is his part in a video called "Destroy Everything Now" which I hadn't really heard of until finding this part. The part is definitely really good though and given that I had never heard of the video and had really only heard of the sponsor (88 footwear) a couple of times, it definitely deserves a spot in the category of lesser-seen skate videos.

Not that anyone cares, but at around 50 seconds, Sir Strubing does the same trick at the same spot that Anthony Pappalardo did in his "Fully Flared" part. Only "Fully Flared" was much later. Deal with it.
