You've got to respect skateboarders from the East Coast. It's been said and said again, but it's really difficult to overstate just how gnarly the skating conditions can be in New England and the surrounding states. Brutal cold grips the winter months and frost wedging from the freezing temperatures causes massive cracks in the pavement. The summer months are extremely hot and humid making day sessions painful and sometimes impossible. In this CCS exclusive behind the scenes edit of Zered's recently released Star Player clip, New England locals Zered Bassett and Eli Reed take teammate Nick Trapasso on trip to their home turf to expose him to the rugged gnarliness. From Lobster fishing to to the wind whipped city—you're not in California anymore, Nick.
