Things that ruin tricks
« on: May 15, 2018, 11:02:02 PM »
When the skater lands and their pants are so low they get the classic “plumbers crack” (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

two tone wheels (ie navs), swirls are okay as they just sort of blend together (or maybe im just trying to defend my regrettable purchase in formula fours) but two tones are just a fucking epilepsy inducer

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...

don't run your hand through your hair between tricks. allowed if you have legitimate wizard locks that are blocking you from seeing your feet... but then that also kinda ruins the clip, get a haircut

tl;dr: i'm jealous of their thick full heads of hair

The post trick hug session is really starting to get cringe-worthy.

Also, the "OH MY GOD" after EVERY trick in EVERY video part.

Or the chase them down the street after they ride off into the sunset. This shit gives me second hand embarrassment.

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?

on a vaguely related note i do enjoy when people do that accidental push (usually when turning) on the wrong side of their board

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.

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 second these as well as the bullshit artsy photo taking/guitar playing shots in between clips.
