sweet jesus. thank you for that. I can't begin to understand how he did that last trick so clean.

I'll contribute:

I like that Felipe keeps his speed while doing tech.

I think the biggest game changers in skating was PJ Ladd's part in Wonderful Horrible Life and the Lakai video. Those parts were so next level and you could see everyone trying to keep up with the Jone's right after those videos came out. Tech skating just got insane.

i still have Ladd's vid on vhs. but that vid was plain nuts. it's reached the point where it's difficult to tell a skaters natural stance.

Hell yes. As a non-skater I kinda wish that these videos had subtitles that listed the trick name, which I know is a direct result of my Tony Hawk playing days. I am also glad to see kids that actually skate with skill, as my campus is infested with these longboard types traipsing along like they're carving up the pavement something fierce.

That kid has got some insane tricks. Too bad the poor kid got thrown in the deep end against PJ ladd in battle at the berrics 4. He just needs to work on his basics a little and he'll be sick.

i don't know what i would do without skate videos growing up. most of the music i listen to is largely influenced by bands that were in those videos. it was a great source of indie-alternative music
