Fully Flared will be 10 years old this year
« on: January 05, 2017, 09:41:57 AM »
This brings up a lot of thoughts for me. FF came out when I was in high school and brought me back into the skateboarding world (I started in like 4th grade then stopped cause I was a little fuck bitch).

This makes me:

Feel old. Its been 10 years and it feels like it came out a few years ago. Still a classic.
Lose faith in Crail. Crail released FF and Pretty Sweet in the past 10 years...two videos...
Wonder how long Lakai has left. I really hope they stay alive.
Excited for the new Lakai vid. No special effects and all that bullshit. Just skating. Cmon Italian One don't let us down!

Sean Pablo said that Fully Flared was the first video he ever saw. That made me feel old, but in a good way.

I was just done with college when this came out. First bought it at HUF when they had a retail store in SF. Watched it in store with like a pack of people and bought my copy after. I don't care what people say now but back then, this video was tits.

I remember someone on here posting a pic of his nuts in exchange for the link.

And he didn't get the link

I was at a burger spot and "Goodbye Horses" came on while I was eating. A couple of college-age skaters came and sat down at the table next to me. I turned to them and asked, "you guys know who skated to this?" and got blank stares. I asked if they had seen FF and they said yes but I could see the lie in their eyes. I was weirded out at first until I realized if they're in college it came out when they were like 9.

I was actually thinking about this the other day and popped it in to watch. I didn't sit through the whole thing, but I skipped around. I remember sitting and watching the countdown in school so excited. The video, despite it's length, still holds up well. MC skating to Judas Priest is so good, and Pops putting out his 2016 part in 2007 is cool.
Was this video the last to contain a full Rickk part?

The first memory that comes to mind with FF is working in a skateshop and that title menu looping every day for a year

Yeah man I was 17 when this came out.  I remember being blown away by Mike Mo's part, and Guy's part almost made me shed a couple tears- I think it was the music combined with the "comeback"

i feel old because ff is too recent to have really resonated with me. yeah right was probably the last video that did so. not saying flared and numerous others weren't absolutely fantastic, they were. but maybe i was just too old for their impressions to stick around. or maybe i'm the only geezer that feels this way.

just watched the whole thing because of the ten year anniversary. soo many good things in it. my favorite thing is probably the french
connection. but whats up with the credits saying "filmed on panasonic cameras" when you can clearly see in the panasonic wideangles
that they used the sony vx1k with mk1 for a lot of fisheye shots? was that because of some kind of ty evans sponsorship by panasonic?

23 yrs ago, on a night just like tonight, ricky oyola booted a homeless man in the head like a soccer ball. and when they pulled the soccer ball head from the twisted, burning wreck.... it looked like this!
Does it make you nostalgic?

Still pretty crazy that they may have never youtubed "Marc Johnson fully flared"
Watching that part is like a coming of age experience for teenagers. At least it was for me

yea most likely, ty evans vimeo page has a bunch of panasonic ads they filmed during that time. They were also using the dvx for a bunch of the SD shots too.

The slo mo bugged me at the time but I was so hyped on a new Carroll part and all the heartwarming drama around Guy's part that I didn't care as much. But that aspect of it REALLY has not aged well for me.

Still, it's fucking Fully Flared. It was kind of the pinnacle of a particular era, and I can't deny the nostalgia I get watching it.
