Nike SB recently released a short documentary paying homage to the enormous effect Sandy Bodecker had on Swoosh and more specifically, Nike SB. A year since his passing, the video shows Nike skaters and employees remember a legend and showcase his everlasting influence.
Without giving too much of the video away, see how Sandy grew from a product tester stuffing his feet into sample size to becoming Nike VP of Special Projects. The video allows insight into how the Sandy impressed the top dogs at Nike early on, and grew to be given control of Nike’s new skateboarding division. Despite not being a skater himself, Sandy Boedcker studied the craft and changed the game, connecting fashion and skating cultures early on.
