When the skater lands and their pants are so low they get the classic ďplumbers crackĒ (see Chris cole, new blood)

The shoe lace thong (lizard)

When the skater is so stoked on their trick they rage , Jolsin style. Sure a bit of hype is fine, no need to rip your shirt off every video part

Awkward group hugs

I recently watched Black Labels "Blackout" video and was kind of annoyed by how many tricks/clips they ruined by drowning them with the black and white filter. I get that it's the aesthetic they were going for but they should have at least replayed the clips without filters as well.

Here is an example https://youtu.be/mFu86j5KIpk?t=26s

maybe not a popular opinion and I know it might sound pretty fucked given the impossible shit that goes down in them, but Nike, Converse, Adidas, and to a lesser (but increasing) extent Vans shoes on a skaters' feet just ruin most clips to me; not trying to cause any controversy here, it just naturally does, to me. I just can't help but not unsee the overly blatant, gross promotion; now of course skateboarding is an industry and sponsorship is all about advertising and yadda yadda... but there is something so unsubtle about those situations, to me they always convey the feel that I'm watching a commercial rather than a skate video. and yes, of course most skate videos are commercials - I don't think I need to be schooled on that shit - but the thing is, even as such, I feel like they only work when they actually make you want to skate. I'm not interested in a mere display of product on some generic superhero's feet like the guy's skating is some kind of obvious shop window (something I find almost degrading for the skater in itself); I only get stoked on videos were the actual skating is the focus, and I just naturally stop feeling that way as soon as I'm submerged with swooshes and stripes. although, that mechanism doesn't seem to apply whenever the skater looks like he's genuinely wearing the shoes, ie. they're beat up or the guy looks like he's just wearing whatever with no contractual obligations (so, mostly unsponsored dudes). or if it's Quim Cardona, Paulo Diaz or Jahmal Williams in 1998. growing up in an era where the skateboarding industry was still very much of a skaters' thing and the big corporations were more or less completely out of it, I guess I still kept a certain knack for skating that looks or feels 'untouched'.

now don't get me wrong, I'll appreciate everybody's talent on a board and achievements regardless of their sponsors' logo and I tend to just mentally strip the skater down to their silhouette anyway, in order to appreciate what they're physically doing. but Nike, Adidas, Converse, and Vans logos somehow persist as something that soils and taints skate footage to me. sorry not sorry...

For flatground tricks in lines, I hate it when ppl do the trick and then push immediately after without riding it out for a bit. Even worse is if they do it going slow and then immediately push a lot to do the next thing (usually a gap that requires speed). It's like saying "I can't do that trick going fast but I hope you don't mind."

Yo how is Leo Romero so awful at pushing when he is one of the best street skaters of all time?

A trick on a tall ledge and the skater touches it as they land or come off. It was something I used to do as a kid and now when I see someone else do it I'm so grossed out. And sort of wall touching on a wallride cancels it. When you see them setting up for a playground trick but then the clip ends you are just like damn, shoulda done the line. Ear buds. Shitty music playing in the background. So much can go wrong.

Title: Re: Things that ruin tricks
Post by: streetsoup on May 16, 2018, 05:42:31 PM
celebratory shitty switch heel miss

Shaking your head when you land your trick- if you're not stoked on your maneuver then neither am I. See Tom Knox in the Vegas atlantic drift when he does that wallride over the little cement thing in the middle of the wall to get what I mean.

Muddbutt and headphones go without saying. Switch to a new pair or come back the next day and get it. Or just ditch the khakis and you can try for as long as you want. If you cant land your line without blasting your wu-tang, then don't even bother filming it, just go to the skatepark and have your nice little session with your music and ignore everyone at the park. You do you bro, just not in the footy.

Tic Tacs.

Throwing or kicking your board away in triumph. Ride the damn thing it just did something awesome for you.

The angle it is filmed at can always make or break it.

I actually like homie celebrations and the post trick hype though, skateboarding is fun and exciting and it's a great moment when your friend finally lands his shit.

Filmer angle trick. When the trick over a gap is filmed to make it look respectable but really it's the size of a fuckin manhole.

Love that Dave Mayhew part, he kills it. But the switch flip the street gap or whatever is a perfect example of what I mentioned.

When filmers start a line with the fisheye up in the skaters face, or when the camera immediately pans to a fucking wall or the ground after the last trick. These were vx problems I guess but still.

Shitty music and cringey editing. If it's bad enough though, it's amazing. Like, the clip of Nyjah googley-eying that 18 that he's about to fuck. Don't think I've ever laughed out loud during filler footage. Thank you to whoever has that as your sig.

Otherwise, have fun, fuck it. The track suit shit and 90's comeback fashion is starting to weigh on me though. I'm cool with looking like a garbage person, whatever, walk into a thrift store and deck out, but that dude that wants to be Kalis needs to cool it.

I for one like that shit (when it's subtle and not overdone; every clip filmed like that would indeed be headache-inducing and make a video unwatchable). I know it's a touchy subject, though, but Josh Stewart used to make such camera movement work really well in Static 1 (ie. the DC section). Zach Chamberlin can pull it off as well and Dan Wolfe used to do it with pedestrians. I think it's really a street skater's thing to do, use the fisheye in wonky ways. but there's a fine line not to cross and I reckon if you aren't an exceptional filmer like the aforementioned people then there's a good chance you'll trip over and into the side of poor taste.

yo flips (or whatever catching tre flips with the front foot was called).

maybe the most offensive 'development' to the aesthetics of trick form ever.

again no disrespect to the few good ones that might have been thrown down but I'm so biased against yo flips (I just never understood the reason for doing them besides publicly displaying poor taste) that to me they don't even count as 360 flips, my brain won't register them as such because they have such a distinctive form. they look more like casper flip hybrids to me when they're super exaggerated, and the bad type of casper flips too; just with a fancy rotation. to me a textbook 360 flip just looks completely different, think Tim O Connor or Josh Kalis style, you use the pop and catch it solid. of course if you do 360 flips on skatepark hips all day you're going to start catching them with your front foot first, but you don't, you really don't, need to kick that back leg out and fake a pose like you're wearing Etnies sunglasses

where do we draw the line where fake/exaggerated styling a trick is disavowed? over exaggerating a tre flip is bad, over exaggerating a front rock gets a pass?

pushing the limits of a trick's form is rad. doing it at the expense of whatever your natural expression is in a very specific, contrived way just to fit in among all the goons who're trying super hard to look the exact same as someone else, not so much. it's just skateboarding, a lot of it is subjective and at the end of the day it doesn't matter, but everyone will have their own sensibility for what they find, or don't find, ridiculous. every once in a while, the opinion of some people who've been skating for a long time might hold more water than a skatepark kid's just because they've seen more shit, so they can appreciate and read into certain essential qualities of skateboarding the same way an art critic (oooh...) would, so they don't get fooled as easily as somebody more naive would by someone faking the funk, but in reality there also are a lot of elders out there who are actually essentially clueless about skating despite having been doing it forever and will just repeat the same washed-up, popular opinions over and over. everybody's got their approach and everybody's missing on at least some elements of understanding, that's actually one of my favorite things about skateboarding, listening to the do's and don'ts, or the sophisticated rules peeps like Puleo come up with; there's always some kind of reasoning behind them and sometimes it's so sharp, it's hilarious. within the same activity you have a spectrum of a community punctured with dudes who live by the forbidden 14's and others who think Chris Haslam shit goes. just find your own happy medium. generally speaking though, just looking at a photo or a clip you'll know bullshit when you see it, but there are so many factors involved depending on what you like or not, understand or not, relate to or not. everything is cool and nothing is cool. just stay humble, skate a lot and everything will be fine

T-Rex arms. And swamp ass footage. I don't know how filmers don't just say, "You're doing a great kickflip but all we can see is ass sweat. Let's go shopping so you can buy some nice new pants. It's on me."

i need to see an example of t-rex arms stat!

i hate wack arm style

I've seen it in person, but can't think of any footage/photos offhand. It's usually when someone's pushing, their arms are all crunched up. Arto even says he does it sometimes, he called it the claw.

so how do yall anti swampers feel about dirt/grass/blood stained shirts? i feel like that's the same category.

as a hairy, sweaty dude living in the south i got no problem with wet crack clips because it's an everyday struggle.

That's different, it's good to see that because it shows you worked for it. I'd actually prefer footage not to be so clean all the time, shoe, clothes, even tricks. It's unnatural. But swamp ass, and I'm sorry to say this, seems like you've soiled yourself. We know what it is but still, a big stain right on your ass isn't a good look.

I feel the same way about when handrail tricks are filmed at a certain angle to make the rail seem not so small. It doesn't mean the tricks aren't impressive but it ruins it a bit for me somehow. The two examples I can think of are Greco's ender in the Deathwish video and Guy's ender in Pretty Sweet.

I hate how every single part these days has a variation of a bs/fs tailslide kickflip out.

I no longer give a shit about that trick unless it's unbelievably well done, or if Ronnie Creager does them.

Honestly I'm kinda over strobecks style of filming/editing.  I feel like I gotta force myself to watch it . The random slow motion shots, the "lifestyle" shots, it's all a bit too dramatic and forced if you ask me.

Also camo pants,  and trap music

The first one that came to mind for me is Rowleys Thrasher cover when he 360íd into that ditch. The footage was good but it was nothing what I expected or pictured what it would be like.
