“When making this edit, I wanted to show that the Brooklyn scene is still alive and more skaters like Almog Maman and Vincent Mcconney are coming up. Also we got couple of OG’s like Polish Mike and Adam Maman still skating hard even though they’ve got busy lives. Yannes Sootes is back and skating in full force as you can see in this edit. Brooklyn is not dead!” – John Alcantra.

John Alcantra sends an edit of Brooklyn, NY skater Sasha Sergieviev. The edit is made up of left over footage of Sasha skating Brighton Beach, Brooklyn during late Fall. I’m a big fan of Sasha’s style and skating and hope to see more from him soon. Filmed and edited by John Alcantra.
Check the edit from Brooklyn, NY featuring Brookyln and Long Island skaters Sasha Sergieiev, Omar and Devin Thomas. Spots feature Brighton Beach, Bushwick, Wall Street, Chinatown and other Manhattan spots. Filmed and edited by John Alcantra during the Fall.
This edit is over two years old and has very rarely been seen. Yannes Sootes and Sebastian Michalski were, and still are, one of the best skaters from the Brooklyn, NY area. You may say I’m partial due to me being born and raised in Brooklyn but if you take a close detailed look at the last trick in this edit you will be just as amazed as I was. Besides Yannes’ switch up at the end, he also pulls off a top acid on a chest high rail in Chinatown. Sebastian also pulls off some clean and smooth tricks that are just as impressive. Hoping Yannes and Sebastian will step back into the lime light, John Alcantra submits his edit to I Roll NY.
