Just this morning, Marc and I watched the Sector9 Manila Bomb skateboard race which started from Raja Sulayman Park, Manila to Rockwell Powerplant Mall, Makati.

The event’s title, “Push! Don’t Pollute,” was an environmentalist philosophy—encouraging people to fin alternative means of transportation and to underscore the need to take better care of the planet. Aloha Boardsports organized this skateboard event.

Frankly, I’m not too hot about skateboards. I tried it once, but riding one scared me—there’s just something unsettling about steering using your feet and not your hands 😛 But as somebody who particularly enjoys cycling every morning (when it’s not raining, that is), I am quite impressed with what they’re trying to do for the environment. To be honest, it’s not often that I attend an event made with the environment in mind (except for the animal events I attended with my dog Shantee probably).

I don’t normally post videos on my blog, but this is the first time I was able to really use my new phone to take videos so I made a montage of photos and videos Marc and I took during the event. Pardon the graininess, I had to compress it 🙂

Don’t mind the cheesy effects 😛 I was also trying out Windows Movie Maker. It’s nothing like Adobe Premiere, but it’ll do for personal videos like this one.
