MITCH GUTH IS A MAN OF MYSTERY. HE FIRST POPPED UP ON THEHESH.COM’S RADAR A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN HE WAS FILMING FOR NO-COLLAR (PREVIOUSLY KNOWN AS TEENAGER WITH A VX.) MITCH IS A PRETTY LOW KEY GUY WHEN YOU FIRST MEET HIM BUT GETS HESH AS FUCK ONCE HE FINDS OUT YOU AREN’T A TOTAL KOOK. IN THE LAST FEW YEARS MITCH HAS BEEN TWICE AS BUSY FILMING, HE IS NOW A YOUNG ADULT WITH A HVX – BUT WILL BUST OUT THE VX FOR THE RUMORED UPCOMING CAL SURF VIDEO. I FOLLOWED THE SCENT OF THE GUTH KUSH AND WAS ABLE TO MEET UP WITH HIM IN A TOP SECRET EDITING LAIR IN A BUNKER 3 LAIRS BELOW THE SURFACE OF 3RD LAIR TO GET JUICY NEVER BEFORE HEARD DETAILS ON THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED “THE LAIR VIDEO“:
THE HESH: WHAT’S UP HESHERS? I’M HERE WITH MITCH GUTH IN A TOP SECRET EDITING LAIR AT AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION WITH EXTREMELY HIGH SECURITY. WHY DO YOU GOT ALL THESE BODYGUARDS GUARDING THE FILES FOR THE LAIR VIDEO?
Mitch Guth: Cause I only have two copies of it and they are both right in this room.
THE HESH: DAMN… CAN I WATCH IT?
Mitch Guth: Nah not yet dude, you don’t want to see it.
THE HESH: IS IT NOT EVEN THAT GOOD OF A VIDEO?
Mitch Guth: Naw you just don’t want to watch it right now, you’re gonna wanna see it when you’re drunk.
THE HESH: YEAH! THAT’S THE HESH WAY TO WATCH A SKATE VIDEO! I WANNA NOT REMEMBER HALF THE SHIT THAT GOES DOWN! WELL FIRST THINGS FIRST, YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN FILMING FOR THIS VIDEO FOR A GOOD MINUTE; HOW OLD IS SOME OF THE OLDEST FOOTY; WHEN WAS EVERYBODY LIKE “AIGHT, GUYS WE MAKING A VIDEO”?
Mitch Guth: We had a meeting June 2014 and that’s when everybody was down. Tukker VanVark had been filming for maybe like a year before, so there’s some older Tanner footage in there from that time period, but a majority is from the last year and a half. We took a bunch of trips – went to Kentucky and Chicago when these fuckin beasts won Copa, so much gnarly shit went down on those trips.

THE HESH: WHAT WAS THE MOST PRODUCTIVE TRIP?
Mitch Guth: Well Tukker and Tanner went on a bunch of trips to California and slayed it over the winter. They always be taking their summer vacations in the winter. But as far as trips I was there for, one time on this trip to Kentucky, we went to the local skateshop and we saw this magazine cover of this crazy ditch Sascha Daly kickflipped into, and Cody Davis was like “Let’s go there now!” and immediately starts trying to hardflip into it right off the bat… just trying to one-up a magazine cover. That’s when everybody was like “Wow… this shit is crazy.” Everybody definitely pushed themselves on those trips.
THE HESH: SPEAKING OF CODY DAVIS, IT’S BEEN AWHILE SINCE HIS LAST VIDEO PART, THERE WAS THAT “IT’S YOUR WORLD”, AND ONE BEFORE IT WAS “TALES OF THE FISHOUSE”? WHAT’S HE GOT DOWN EL TORO IN THIS ONE?
Mitch Guth: (LAUGHS) Oh my god, you can expect some big grinds. Did anybody ever 5-0 El Toro?
THE HESH: PROBABLY. IS THE LAIR VIDEO A NICE MIX OF DEATH-DEFYING STUNTS WITH SOME NO-COMPLY GRASS RIDES?
Mitch Guth: You will see, there is a lot of people in this thing. Just wait for the 3rd Lair Cal Surf Shout Out.
THE HESH: I’M GONNA STOP BEATING AROUND THE BUSH AND ASK THE QUESTION EVERYBODY WANTS TO KNOW: WHO’S GOT ENDER?
Mitch Guth: Awwwwww dude, I can’t- I mean you already know, but I can’t say.
THE HESH: WE CAN MAKE OUR OWN ASSUMPTIONS FROM THERE, READERS! YOUR NEWEST PREVIEW GOT SOME HEAVY SLAMS IN IT – WHAT WAS THE HEAVIEST ONE YOU WITNESSED DURING THE FILMING PROCESS?
Mitch Guth: Ty Stigney. Ah! You were there dude! Remember that kinked rail? He was all jittery trying it after bailing, he just like completely hit his face, shin and like chest…
THE HESH: I COMPLETELY MISSED THE SLAM BECAUSE I WENT TO GO GET COFFEE AT STARBUCKS… I CAME BACK AND HE’S JUST ON THE GROUND.
Mitch Guth: (laughs) Oh yeah! He was like: “I think I broke my pinky…”
THE HESH: I ACTUALLY WAS JUST CLOWNING HIM TODAY ABOUT IT, LIKE: “BRO YOU GOT LIKE A WEEK AND A HALF TO GO BACK AND GET THAT…” ARE YOU STILL DOING SHIT LIKE THAT? ARE YOU LETTING PEOPLE SUBMIT THEIR LAST MINUTE CLIPS OF THEM GOING NUTS OR IS THE WHOLE THING DONE AT THIS POINT?
Mitch Guth: I’m just finishing the video, I don’t know if we even need more footage, we been filming for this thing for a grip. The whole thing is like at the 40-45 minute mark.
