Title: Tricks that seemed impossible when they came out
Post by: RoaryMcTwang on September 05, 2018, 02:04:27 AM
When I first saw it I couldn't believe Andrew Reynolds fs blunt kickflip out on a handrail in The End was real.

What tricks struck you as completely impossible when you first saw them?

Mike Mo fakie f/s crook 360 flip.

A bunch of stuff Creager did on picnic tables at the end of his What If? part.

I also remember being blown away the first time I saw someone doing a 360 on flat, it just didn't make sense someone could ollie well enough to spin all the way around without going off of something hah.

When hardflips first came out I was very confused.  People who weren't free stylers never thought about flipping their board that way before.

Ryan Reyes? I love his skating but now Iím wondering if Iím gotten him confused with.....david Reyes?

What I couldnít believe were Coleís three fucking Enders in New Blood. Go back and look at that Bs 3 flip into the Pitt; it is executed and landed so ridiculously perfect and the first instance of that trick (I think) being done down something and itís just incredible.

Also Billy Markís switch bigspin heelflip boardslide ender in Good and Evil. Wtf

1:  Julio de la Cruz did things no man should be capable of. Always wondered if those were quick tricks for him at that time,  or if he spent hours to make them look like he did them in the regular. Just all those pressure flip variations turned my whole world upside-down.
2:  Bob's Mega part, and Danny's to a lesser extent, made me look at ramps in a while new light.
3: Carroll's noseslide/grind tricks seemed impossible at the time, until we figured it out. Then they were all just so much fun. Especially noseslide to 50-50. Pop it right in up on to there.

1. Keenan Milton's switch flip over the table at Lockwood (I was like 4 when this happened, but it was one of the first tricks that blew my mind when I started skating)

2. Westgate's boardslide up that whole rail in that "Zoo England" part, riding away with speed.
Title: Re: Tricks that seemed impossible when they came out
Post by: DannyDee on September 05, 2018, 06:55:02 AM
I could probably just do this on Koston. The first trick that pops to mind is his Yeah Right ender which was a Tre-flip Front Noseblunt on a rail.

More recent ones that come to mind is Wes's Darkslide on that concrete SD rail, and Kyle Walker's last rail in No Other Way.

speaking of yeah right, i was thinking of all the green-screened ramp tricks. came across this quartersnacks piece from 2012 - "Ten Years Since Yeah Right! and the Case For Increased Plausibility" http://quartersnacks.com/2012/11/ten-years-since-yeah-right-and-the-case-for-increased-plausibility/ (http://quartersnacks.com/2012/11/ten-years-since-yeah-right-and-the-case-for-increased-plausibility/)

will definitely need to update this article ten years later in 2022. crazy to think that dudes now have come pretty close to (and in the case of grinding up a handrail, already surpassed) these tricks that were concocted as jokingly impossible. still waiting for tiago to 5050 on top of two stacked picnic tables from flat.

True, but I actually think I was thinking of Round 3 because the deca stuff was flatrail. I should have been specific to handrails down stairs since that's what i meant by my initial post...but yeah his deca stuff was insane. Also he looks like a completely different human in that stuff too. He's like two different people.

Gonz hippie jump that he didn't really land at the end of Real to Reel fucked me up for a long time. Did not see how anyone could do that.

A lot of Haslam's part in Round 3 seemed crazy, he and others may have done flips out of boardslides before but that boardslide fs flip out was immaculate and caught.

I couldn't understand ANY trick over picnic tables, but I didn't realize that those Cali tables are small as fuck and I was only like 11.

I also remember being blown away the first time I saw someone doing a 360 on flat, it just didn't make sense someone could ollie well enough to spin all the way around without going off of something hah.

I agree with everything else you said but the 360 thing is so spot on. Around the when I started skating, one of the first videos I saw was mosiac. Fred Gall's first line he does a back 360 on flat and I kept rewinding it over and over, because he span so fast. I actually thought he did more than a 360 the first time I saw it, I was so blown away. In that same line he does a wallride at this spot in Philly on American street and at this point I thought wallrides were just something from video games. I didn't really think that they were that possible. I may have already seen someone do one in a video by this point, but I feel like I wasn't sure what was happening. Fred's wallride just looked so deliberate there was no thinking it was anything else. Still one of my favorite lines to this day.

Same here! Even independent of PJ, how anyone could do a fs kickflip was completely incomprehensible to me for the longest time. I mean, the foot has to flick into the same direction in which the board turns 180. Thinking about it now I still don't really get it.

I was fortunate to have been at "School W" when Sheffey backside tailslid the picnic table for his Life part (Sturt filming with the tight shorts). It was full sized when Sheffey skated it, but it had been partially collapsed when Markovich filmed the same backside lipslide for Winona Riders.

I am not sure I know who you're talking about but I tripped out seeing Weiger Van Wageningen do that in his Nothing But The Truth part, which came out like 11 years ago. That video as a whole was lousy because of dumb skits but Weiger's part is pretty nuts.

He does one at 1:05 and then also does a back heel nose grind switch front 180 out in the middle of a ledge at 1:54 which is insane.

I know people think it's, "Gimicky" or whatever, but it must feel awesome to be able to skate the mega-ramp.  Just looking at the roll in from the top makes me scared.  I still can't believe Vov and DWay pull off what are basically super tech street tricks on that shit.  Especially when they incorporate the rails.

Pretty sure the first photo of a blunt slide I ever saw/noticed was the Penny transworld cover in HB. The board is so vertical that I didnít understand why he didnít just fall off since it seemed like he was trying to stand on a wall. And wheels...he was sliding on his wheels, which grip, how could it slide?

Ironically I found out that despite frontside blunts being a very real trick, that the photo I saw was as fake as I thought

Koston handrail nollie heel nose in chocolate tour
Justin Eldridge switch flip salad in yeah right
Danny Gonzales ceiling ride in... first love?
I forget who it was, but like 10-12 years ago some Spanish guy did backside 180 nose grind switch front 180 out in the middle of a tall ledge.  Anyone remember that shit?  All I remember was the web clip was a welcome part for some Spanish board brand.  Anyway, that trick seemed particularly impossible.

I am not sure I know who you're talking about but I tripped out seeing Weiger Van Wageningen do that in his Nothing But The Truth part, which came out like 11 years ago. That video as a whole was lousy because of dumb skits but Weiger's part is pretty nuts.

He does one at 1:05 and then also does a back heel nose grind switch front 180 out in the middle of a ledge at 1:54 which is insane.

Same, I remember a still (not even a sequence) of Wieger doing this trick on a tall ledge in Spain/Mallorca from Kingpin (old euro mag) and thinking how it is even possible. I understood the mental commitment of hammers , but this was just pure wizardry to me.

I know I said I wanted to see this trick in the NBD thread, but goddamn it, I didn't want it to be Ol' Cobra.

Shane: sw flip bs noseblunt down a rail, sw bs 360 kickflip that gap in australia, bigspin bs tail down clipper, nollie bs heel wallenberg, bigspin 5-0 down a rail, and fakie fs crook fakie big heel out.

Torey Pudwill bs smith up that 10 stair rail Westgate boardslid and that chest high bs tail from his big bang part. A bunch of Chris Cole, Nyjah, and Joslin stuff. Chase Webb bs 5-0 down a legit 30+ rail. Kickflip a table the long way. I could go on and on so I'll just leave it at that.

Many of the tricks done on the Afro Banks in the Subzero video blew my mind. Namely, Matt Reasonís switch blunt front 180 and Fredís backside noseblunt. That thing was definitely not easy to skate.

When I first saw it I couldn't believe Andrew Reynolds fs blunt kickflip out on a handrail in The End was real.

What tricks struck you as completely impossible when you first saw them?

leo romero's and brandon westgate's boardslides up handrails. I remember when stay gold came I couldn't believe what I was watching.

3 stair handrail!
thing would be hard enough to tap a slide on, nonetheless pick it and flip it.

Yep! I grew up skating this rail just like that one (first rail I've ever done lol) and I was just mind blown.

It's like he could have flipped it late without even touching the rail to begin with. Super fast footwork and how the fuck did he make it look good?

Also, those tech rail tricks from Duffy if virtual reality on what I believe was a mellow 5 stair, but still...mind blown
