To commemorate the 10th anniversary of their partnership, adidas Skateboarding teamed up with Thrasher magazine to release the first-ever documentary on skateboard legend Dennis Busenitz titled Up to Speed.

The film gives us a rare and intimate glimpse into the life of Busenitz. Born in Munich, Germany, Busenitz lived his formative years in Newton, Kansas and later made his way to San Francisco, California where he became a skateboarding icon.

Up to Speed features friends, fellow pro skateboarders, and others from the industry including Jake Phelps (Editor-in-Chief of Thrasher magazine), Keith Hufnagel (Founder of HUF), Atiba Jefferson (legendary skate photographer), Jim Thiebaud (Founder of Real Skateboards and Deluxe Distribution), Skin Phillips (iconic skate photographer and adidas Skateboarding Team Manager) and many more.
