Also enjoyed watching the Pro-Tec Pool Party (Masters) 2012 over on the Thrasher site, especially Chris Miller.
Not much to say about this stunning film from Terje Sorgjerd, it’s just simply beautiful.
No great surprises in this video of how a skateboard is made but interesting none the less.
PS Leo Romero wins Thrasher Skater of the Year.
As far as I was aware he’s been in and out of prison for the last decade or so so I’m glad he’s got it together to release some new material.
Just headed over to the Thrasher website and saw they have a new video player. No bad thing, I used to hate the Quick Time movies they had, so slow. This is some RAD footage of Christian Hosoi, that benihana! Holmes.
There’s also an Hosoi interview on the Fuel.tv website.
This is a moment most skaters have been through, that first drop in, a right of passage. Clearly it’s the easiest trick in the world, other than pushing along or riding off a curb perhaps, but it doesn’t feel like it when you’re up there looking down that first time. Put the tail on the coping with your back foot on it, move your front foot onto the board around the front truck bolts, move your weight forward and roll down the tranny. Easy!
Damn, I feel sorry for the little fella. It’s pure psych when it comes off, and then, once you’ve made it, it’s almost impossible to bail it ever again. It’s all about that first time though. He’s definitely got his front foot too far forward there.
I think I made my first drop-ins at all heights thankfully.
