MTN DEW is excited to announce its latest short film, 'Modern Lines,' a showcase of an innovative new skateboard course build that combines transition and street skating, created from the vision of pro skater Curren Caples and designed and built by CA Ramp Works. 'Modern Lines' will air on ABC’s World of X Games on Sunday, September 29, with a global digital encore on the MTN DEW YouTube channel directly following the national TV airing.
Combining style, creativity, and progression, 'Modern Lines' encompasses the future of skate course design. The MTN DEW skate team, which includes Curren Caples, Sean Malto, Mariah Duran, Theotis Beasley and Chris Colbourn, along with some of their favorite skaters, Mason Silva, Jake Anderson, and Jenn Soto were invited to bring the newly designed course to life and demonstrate their broad spectrum of skills. With flowing neon green lines and unique glowing features, the course was built for fun and fast skating and housed within a 74,000 square foot vacant industrial building in Southern California.
“I’m hyped to see the 'Modern Lines' course come to life,” comments Caples. “I wanted to build something fun for me and my friends to skate that blurred the lines of traditional street and transition courses. I’m stoked that MTN DEW helped take my idea and bring it to life with the entire skate team involved.”
The 'Modern Lines' build-out and private skate session was captured by Mack Dawg Productions, including legendary skate film makers, director Mike McEntire and director of photography Ty Evans. The documentary style short film details the process from start to finish.
