DIG just put up a rad “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Dollar Bet” feature up on digbmx.com and has a few things about Tate that are pretty interesting in it. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check it out. Everyone has insane parts and our own, Tate Roskelley’s part is definitely worth a watch, or 2.
“Shawn “Elf” Walters’ new video production “Dollar Bet” is the epitome of the indy video. It’s funded entirely out of Elf’s own pocket, filmed mostly around Salt Lake City, and the positive vibe/comedic feel throughout the video is perfect. With familiar names appearing throughout like Cameron Wood, Tate Roskelley, Mike Aitken, Matt Beringer, and Elf himself, there are also sick sections from some of the young bucks of the Salt Lake scene like Brady Tweedy, Manny Kilpack and Trent Steel.” – DIG
1. The first time I went to film Tate’s last trick where his wheel comes off, it rolled through some human shit… he accidentally touched it and freaked out and had to call it for the day. The next time we went he was trying the trick for awhile, and a worker from the building next door walked over and said, “I see your wheel keeps falling off; I have a wrench you can use to tighten it up”. It was a huge monkey wrench.
