In the latest Thrasher they say that the new Chima part will have the footage for a couple of his photos from his recent Thrasher interview. So it must be in there.

Can't wait to see it. Chima's been so consistent for so long, I feel like this might be his defining part.

a defining part at 32? im not sayin he has to pack it up but i definitely believe he has already hit his peak. Dont get me wrong I loved the footage he put out back in 2008 in that Killself video and Let's Live but everything after that has just been kinda meh. I couldnt tell you one trick from the last Vans video he had last part in. Maybe this part will do it for me? Maybe he will get SOTY? doubtful. also arent chima and his brother slightly racist?

Def I will be wathing this, Chima, Dustin, Breeana, will be great to watch.

But also is a bummer that a few hours before we can see all the soundtrack of the video, won't be as surprise as could be in a normal premiere if you know some of the tracks or google them (wich I wont), but glad to see some DGar music there.

looking forward to dustin, nick, diego, breana and some of the others... hopefully some andrew allen, justin henry and reynolds. they're saying it's a feature-length and someone on the youtube page said it's 43 minutes. stoked to see some more greg hunt content as well.

Chima’s footage was phenomenal and other-worldly (and definitely disproved dudeonthecoach’s stupid-ass prediction), but god damn the filming was horrible. I’d be pissed if I was Chima and my hard work was sullied like that.

Amazing video. Was expecting a 14 minute video with a couple parts but that was a proper full length in 2021. Loved how international it was. Too many good things to mention. I think it was just especially refreshing because I was expecting another Elijah Berle x Greg Hunt style video
Title: Re: Vans Nice To See You
Post by: slappies on October 13, 2021, 06:10:04 PM
Unbelievable skating. Dustin's section was probably my favorite, though it was full of insane stuff throughout the whole thing. Pedro successfully just ended roll on grinds for everyone. It was nice seeing ET footage and Diego land some tricks. Breana had some surprising stuff like the handrail 5.0 and double set hardflip, was looking forward to her part. Oh also, Nick Michel has some wild stuff. Skating to SDR was perfect.

Also, you have have be an asshole not to like Chima's part in this. Truly amazing shit.

Long story short, I will be watching again for sure.

Wow, I really liked all of that. The Notis Aggelis part followed by the Japan section was really refreshing. Also really delighted with Dustin Henry, per usual. And then wow, that Chima ollie.

Chima is a beast. I coulda' just skipped to that part. Holy shit.

Edit: that's not to say I didn't enjoy other stuff, but his part was on another level. Nick's part was sick too, good music choice. I agree that a lot of the fisheye filming was sus - seems like people spent so much time trying to emulate Strobek that they legit forgot how to film fisheye.

Noticed this too. The fisheye shots were so tight you’d miss most of the trick. Long lens stuff was fine. Truly a shame, but thankfully doesn’t ruin a fine Chima part. I don’t think he’s ever really put out anything sub par. Love the spots he skates, and he makes jumping down big stuff pleasurable and stylish.

Dustin Henry is always a treat.

is that not okay when someone is jumping down the biggest shit ever..? you guys really go out of your way sometimes. if tom k wore gloves in a clip skating three 5 stairs in a row everyone would cream their pants and say it was cool and it’s okay cause the uk has shitty ground. cut it out.

If you’re a dad and a husband of one of the hottest women alive I think you should get a pass for the gloves. His hands are a bit more valuable than your average man.

Can't wait to see it. Chima's been so consistent for so long, I feel like this might be his defining part.

a defining part at 32? im not sayin he has to pack it up but i definitely believe he has already hit his peak. Dont get me wrong I loved the footage he put out back in 2008 in that Killself video and Let's Live but everything after that has just been kinda meh. I couldnt tell you one trick from the last Vans video he had last part in. Maybe this part will do it for me? Maybe he will get SOTY? doubtful. also arent chima and his brother slightly racist?

Concerning the Chima's brother is racist thing I think it's more Americans not understanding just because USA and Aus both speak English doesn't mean it's the same English and words mean different things.
I think the story is some Americans were being dickheads and Chima's brother called them out on it and one said something like why don't you have my back were both black to which Chima's brother replied "I'm not black, im Australian!"
For people born before this millenium in Aus black generally means African American. I don't know Chima or his brother but my friends in high school would get really bothered by people calling them black they said it was like just calling any Asian person Chinese

In the latest Thrasher they say that the new Chima part will have the footage for a couple of his photos from his recent Thrasher interview. So it must be in there.

Can't wait to see it. Chima's been so consistent for so long, I feel like this might be his defining part.
[close]

a defining part at 32? im not sayin he has to pack it up but i definitely believe he has already hit his peak. Dont get me wrong I loved the footage he put out back in 2008 in that Killself video and Let's Live but everything after that has just been kinda meh. I couldnt tell you one trick from the last Vans video he had last part in. Maybe this part will do it for me? Maybe he will get SOTY? doubtful. also arent chima and his brother slightly racist?
[close]

Concerning the Chima's brother is racist thing I think it's more Americans not understanding just because USA and Aus both speak English doesn't mean it's the same English and words mean different things.
I think the story is some Americans were being dickheads and Chima's brother called them out on it and one said something like why don't you have my back were both black to which Chima's brother replied "I'm not black, im Australian!"
For people born before this millenium in Aus black generally means African American. I don't know Chima or his brother but my friends in high school would get really bothered by people calling them black they said it was like just calling any Asian person Chinese

Nah you're trippin. Indigenous people refer to themselves as black. As do the majority of Somalians and Sudanese people I know regardless of whether they were born here or moved here. Generally people prefer to be noted for their nationality rather than skin colour of course. I'm mixed, volunteer in community services, and I hear it all the time.

It’s hard to see but that run up before is like a street or two long. So Sammy has a lot of time to pick up speed along with Chima doing the pull forward thing from Thps which causes him to get more speed I’m pretty sure. Needless to say insane point blank.

Great job, Greg.

This. The whole part was amazing, plus the ollie, but those two stood out for me as well.

Pedro's last trick is ridiculous. His kickflip over the street gap should've been filmed from a little farther back.

Love Diego Todd footage. The kickflip was amazing.

Dustin's part was so good.

Breanna's double-set hardflip was sick.

Nick Michel's last trick and cab to switch hill bomb was awesome.

Rewatchable video for sure.

It's hard to talk stand-outs with a packed part like that, but the Switch 360 Flip also struck me as special. Usually people seem to catch late when throwing them down stuff, but this was popped and caught with so much power.

I must be out of step but I just thought it was ok. Filming was very uneven, espically the first half. I can't stand emo music so you can guess my opinion of the soundtrack.

Maybe my attention span has shrunk too at this point but this should have been two or a few videos instead. Breana, Ronnie, Dustin and Chima parts together as a pro vid, with the obligatory am montage of course; then a separate video or videos focusing on the skaters/scenes around the globe.

In this format it felt a bit cobbled together, also a bit bloated. At times I felt like I was stuck toughing out yet another kid nosesliding a knee high ledge in order to get to the good stuff.

 I feel like all Vans full lengths disappoint me a bit though. With the ridiculous amount of talent that team has they oughtta be putting out the best vid of the year every time they do a full length. Hell they oughtta be able to put one out every year too, considering the team.

if he don't define about the color of the skin - it doesn't make him a racist.

Racism is a global problem - but the issue in this case is that if you grow up in the US
as an young male with darker skin color then the majority of the people you face different kind of Racism then
people growing up in Australia, France, Germany etc. etc.  for sure you face racism there too - but different.
So you have a different point of view.

His point of view is - he is Australian first - and he did not care that much about the color of your skin.
He care more about your behavior in interaction with him or other people.

Because everyone in Australia is an immigrant  (ok Koori / Anangu arrived already 50.000years ago -but this is 1% of the people) - and half of the nations arrived the last 60years.

Interesting analysis. I partially agree, but I don't think it has to be framed as a negative. From my vantage point it appears that Gen Z's consumer preferences are different than previous generations.

These shifting consumer tastes are largely driving this phenomenon of moving away from "skill" and adherence to group norms with a much larger emphasis on friendship, creative expression, and diversity than in the past.

Skateboarding is a really cool blend of art and sport, and that tension of style (how you do things) vs. skill (what you can do) has always existed. Think Hosoi vs. Hawk in the 80s. 

The formula is imprecise, but it seems that to succeed in the skate industry brands have to walk that line with who they pick and choose to represent their products and how they market themselves.

Gen Z seems to be the first generation to be true digital natives in the sense that (with the exception of the oldest of their cohort) they cannot remember a time in which social media didn't exist. They tend to be a lot more accepting of people's differences, which I think can be attributed to growing up in hyper-fractured online spaces with hundreds, if not thousands, of cultural niches to mix and match at will.

Millennials accelerated this phenomenon, but the world was still physical enough that a more standard set of tastes and values emerged.   

The defining feature of Gen Z seems to be embracing "corny" stuff like Y2K fashion, emo and post-grunge music, and looking at skateboarding as a way to express themselves and meet people. Not taking it as seriously. Having fun with it and caring a lot less about what is "cool." Being anti-cool is cool now or something haha.

I think these changes can lead to a lot of positives! I came up on the tail end of a much harsher, judgmental, white-and-male-dominated subculture. A lot of the hand-wringing I see from older skaters I think is fundamentally rooted in existential anxiety as they are slowly being pushed aside for a new paradigm.

The kids at skateparks nowadays seem a lot nicer, friendlier, and hyped on most things as opposed to when I was their age. They are the most diverse generation in US history, and are more aware of social issues and current events than their predecessors. 

I'm sure the bean counters at VF Corp ran the numbers and realized that in addition to being a "good look," moving away from the industry formula of taking skinny, primarily caucasian skaters and convincing them the only way to succeed in skateboarding was to move to California and jump down as many stairs/grind the biggest rails possible doesn't translate to dollars as much as it used to.

The teens and twenty-somethings of today are more diverse, and they want to see themselves represented in their subcultures. While reactionaries in the community rant and rave about the latest shoe company ad featuring a woman doing a "sub-par" trick, tens of thousands of girls see that ad on Instagram and get inspired to go out and push their own boundaries.

This only gets more women and girls in skateboarding and elevates the talent pool as a whole. It's crazy to see footage from women's contests even a decade ago vs. now. The skill differential is insane, and women are only continuing to get better and catch up to their male counterparts. This is a HUGE positive.

Let's see the bigger picture here. It's a balance, and there will always be a welcome spot in skateboarding for people who rip and push the discipline to new heights.

I'm very stoked overall on the new, more inclusive and welcoming direction skateboarding has been going for some time now. Sorry for the rant lol.

I must be out of step but I just thought it was ok. Filming was very uneven, espically the first half. I can't stand emo music so you can guess my opinion of the soundtrack.

In this format it felt a bit cobbled together, also a bit bloated. At times I felt like I was stuck toughing out yet another kid nosesliding a knee high ledge in order to get to the good stuff.

 I feel like all Vans full lengths disappoint me a bit though. With the ridiculous amount of talent that team has they oughtta be putting out the best vid of the year every time they do a full length. Hell they oughtta be able to put one out every year too, considering the team.

Interesting analysis. I partially agree, but I don't think it has to be framed as a negative. From my vantage point it appears that Gen Z's consumer preferences are different than previous generations.

These shifting consumer tastes are largely driving this phenomenon of moving away from "skill" and adherence to group norms with a much larger emphasis on friendship, creative expression, and diversity than in the past.

Skateboarding is a really cool blend of art and sport, and that tension of style (how you do things) vs. skill (what you can do) has always existed. Think Hosoi vs. Hawk in the 80s. 

The formula is imprecise, but it seems that to succeed in the skate industry brands have to walk that line with who they pick and choose to represent their products and how they market themselves.

Gen Z seems to be the first generation to be true digital natives in the sense that (with the exception of the oldest of their cohort) they cannot remember a time in which social media didn't exist. They tend to be a lot more accepting of people's differences, which I think can be attributed to growing up in hyper-fractured online spaces with hundreds, if not thousands, of cultural niches to mix and match at will.

Millennials accelerated this phenomenon, but the world was still physical enough that a more standard set of tastes and values emerged.   

The defining feature of Gen Z seems to be embracing "corny" stuff like Y2K fashion, emo and post-grunge music, and looking at skateboarding as a way to express themselves and meet people. Not taking it as seriously. Having fun with it and caring a lot less about what is "cool." Being anti-cool is cool now or something haha.

I think these changes can lead to a lot of positives! I came up on the tail end of a much harsher, judgmental, white-and-male-dominated subculture. A lot of the hand-wringing I see from older skaters I think is fundamentally rooted in existential anxiety as they are slowly being pushed aside for a new paradigm.

The kids at skateparks nowadays seem a lot nicer, friendlier, and hyped on most things as opposed to when I was their age. They are the most diverse generation in US history, and are more aware of social issues and current events than their predecessors. 

I'm sure the bean counters at VF Corp ran the numbers and realized that in addition to being a "good look," moving away from the industry formula of taking skinny, primarily caucasian skaters and convincing them the only way to succeed in skateboarding was to move to California and jump down as many stairs/grind the biggest rails possible doesn't translate to dollars as much as it used to.

The teens and twenty-somethings of today are more diverse, and they want to see themselves represented in their subcultures. While reactionaries in the community rant and rave about the latest shoe company ad featuring a woman doing a "sub-par" trick, tens of thousands of girls see that ad on Instagram and get inspired to go out and push their own boundaries.

This only gets more women and girls in skateboarding and elevates the talent pool as a whole. It's crazy to see footage from women's contests even a decade ago vs. now. The skill differential is insane, and women are only continuing to get better and catch up to their male counterparts. This is a HUGE positive.

Let's see the bigger picture here. It's a balance, and there will always be a welcome spot in skateboarding for people who rip and push the discipline to new heights.

I'm very stoked overall on the new, more inclusive and welcoming direction skateboarding has been going for some time now. Sorry for the rant lol.

Personally I don't care that the tricks women do are "sub par" but it's a bit unappealing when the trick is at an already blown out spot/abd or just a boring spot. If all you can do is a Manny then fuck it find a weird Manny pad and film from an interesting perspective. Just put in effort to make something interesting in another way. This goes for everyone tho Bobby puleo might not have the biggest bag of tricks but his parts are good because he Ollied some random thing nobody has seen before not just some gap we've seen a hundred times already.

I must be out of step but I just thought it was ok. Filming was very uneven, espically the first half. I can't stand emo music so you can guess my opinion of the soundtrack.

Maybe my attention span has shrunk too at this point but this should have been two or a few videos instead. Breana, Ronnie, Dustin and Chima parts together as a pro vid, with the obligatory am montage of course; then a separate video or videos focusing on the skaters/scenes around the globe.

In this format it felt a bit cobbled together, also a bit bloated. At times I felt like I was stuck toughing out yet another kid nosesliding a knee high ledge in order to get to the good stuff.

 I feel like all Vans full lengths disappoint me a bit though. With the ridiculous amount of talent that team has they oughtta be putting out the best vid of the year every time they do a full length. Hell they oughtta be able to put one out every year too, considering the team.


I noted that, filming and editing were very different in every part, but as you can see on credits, everything was filmed / edited by different people so make sense. If not its hard to be on all those places as unique filmer in COVID times.



For me I liked the whole thing, in general. Rewatch material. But in some cases I though they cut the landing too quick for some reason, you can see on ronnie sandoval drop, breeana trick of the cover, and some more (maybe Im confused just saw it once)

Also the music in some cases was too long for the part, the china part and don't remember the other, but felt like I was watching Thrill of it all when they used the intro of the song because the part was really short.

Also I dont like this trend(?) where they film the skater long lens pushing to the ledge, bank, rail whatever. the filmer liked that pushing to use it but is not a make, then they put together that approaching with the make, but the make is filmed from a slightly different angle, (not a b roll form a way different angle), is very similar but you just can see like a little cut, jump that is really disturbing.  I don't know if I'm explaining wel, but I dont like that.

I'm so very happy I waited until I could watch this on my big living room tv with proper sound instead of just slipping on my headphones and watching it from my computer or worse phone.

Everything clicked for me and this might possibly be my favorite vans video and washed the gross taste of Alright ok off of my tongue.

Chima lands and does everything with absolute razor precision and subtle power. The second song's all too familiar opening almost had me disappointed at first (being a huge oldies fan), but it actually ended up going with the scope of that section with the surround sound system I've got. It takes a powerful song to go with that powerful section.

great video with high rewatch value, particularly nick, dustin, notis, and of course chima. between his part in spinning away and this one, in my mind he's up there alongside geoff/arto/heath in that he does truly insane yet tasteful shit, elegantly, to songs that level up the emotion and drama. i think that's why watching him skate triggers an instant feeling of nostalgia for me, just feels like a throwback to some of the best, most classic parts from my youth.

and kinda off topic, but seeing notis skate made me remember how much i love this greek scene video from 2015. good watch if you like hyperlocal vids and want to see how he's progressed:

Breana should have had the last part and then cut. Chima's part should have been released standalone. the fact they put it out standalone knows they know... smh just bloated up their video for the sake of it i guess. he didnt have all the buddy hi-5's in his part and shit. i was so mentally exhausted by the time his part cmae on i honestly dont remember anything besides the stuff i already saw that got leaked and the switch 3 flip over the rail.

At this point I think Beatrice needs to take a break from being filmed until we can't predict exactly what she's gonna do. C'mon. As soon as I saw her face I guessed 5050/5-0 shove. Her own team mates have called her out on record for that a few years ago now. It's embarrassing.

Chima's part should have been released standalone. the fact they put it out standalone knows they know... smh just bloated up their video for the sake of it i guess. he didnt have all the buddy hi-5's in his part and shit. i was so mentally exhausted by the time his part cmae on i honestly dont remember anything besides the stuff i already saw that got leaked and the switch 3 flip over the rail.

This was honestly one of the best full-lengths I've seen in ages, great vibes all the way through. Chima just catapulted himself into legend territory for sure. Breezy was sick as fuck, didn't expect that Thrasher cover crook into the roof bank to go to fakie, honestly made it way sicker riding down that thing switch.

Notis was incredible, hope to see more of him soon. Dustin Henry and Nick Michel shredded. Pedro's ride-on grind game is out of control.

Japan section was possibly my favorite, so much incredible skating and spot-selection in there. Anyone know who the girl in that section was? Sick style on that smith and bs flip

Definitely high rewatch value on this for sure.

I already forget most of it but here’s what I recall;

Nick’s part was seriously lacking some second angles and replays, straight up botched filming in there too, he deserves better.

Ronnie is on a tear and his output over the year should put him on the SOTY shortlist, and I’m not even that into transition skating.

Breezy had the best part, imo.  Great song, filming/editing was on point, and she truly stepped her game up and proved why she deserves a board.  Feel good part for sure.

Would’ve been more into Chima’s had they steered clear of the soulful oldies music that’s in every video these days, yet doesn’t compliment skating whatsoever.  Having nearly all the serious hammers spoiled beforehand ruins it too.  I know it’s hard to keep things secret these days but my god.  Dude’s a legend for sure but idk about SOTY.  Tbh I can’t think of any clear frontrunner yet, but the race is still young.

was really digging the soundtrack right up until Chima's part. dont know wtf they were thinking with those 2. not sure who they are appealing to with that... way to absolutely kill the vibe of the video and the best footage. jesus. absolutely amazing footage ruined with that song. hopefully someone does a remix of that part. the only worse song i can think of on an ending part is lennie kirk on timecode
[close]
worst take ive ever read
[close]

Incoming possible worse take:
Timecode fucking sucks. Fred gall and Lennie Kirk's parts are like two bits of corn in a slow moving turd.

Get kooked every time I say it, but I fully agree on Timecode.  Freddy/Kalis/Lennie parts are legendary, but the first-wave Alien team was sacred to me, and to finally see a video with all of them featured again, only to have such mediocre footage in such a thrown together video, was so disappointing.

I actually found the song for Chima's part bearable as it kinda' felt like I was watching a Reynolds part.

Couldn't stand the song chosen for Ronnie's part though, it did not complement the heaviness of his skating at all but took away from it a bit imo.

Chima owns Martin Pl. He's killed it there since he was a kid.

And if anyone can tell me if that spot @ 6:12 is in Melbourne I'd be super thankful, looks incredible.

I must be out of step but I just thought it was ok. Filming was very uneven, espically the first half. I can't stand emo music so you can guess my opinion of the soundtrack.

In this format it felt a bit cobbled together, also a bit bloated. At times I felt like I was stuck toughing out yet another kid nosesliding a knee high ledge in order to get to the good stuff.

 I feel like all Vans full lengths disappoint me a bit though. With the ridiculous amount of talent that team has they oughtta be putting out the best vid of the year every time they do a full length. Hell they oughtta be able to put one out every year too, considering the team.

Interesting analysis. I partially agree, but I don't think it has to be framed as a negative. From my vantage point it appears that Gen Z's consumer preferences are different than previous generations.

These shifting consumer tastes are largely driving this phenomenon of moving away from "skill" and adherence to group norms with a much larger emphasis on friendship, creative expression, and diversity than in the past.

Skateboarding is a really cool blend of art and sport, and that tension of style (how you do things) vs. skill (what you can do) has always existed. Think Hosoi vs. Hawk in the 80s. 

The formula is imprecise, but it seems that to succeed in the skate industry brands have to walk that line with who they pick and choose to represent their products and how they market themselves.

Gen Z seems to be the first generation to be true digital natives in the sense that (with the exception of the oldest of their cohort) they cannot remember a time in which social media didn't exist. They tend to be a lot more accepting of people's differences, which I think can be attributed to growing up in hyper-fractured online spaces with hundreds, if not thousands, of cultural niches to mix and match at will.

Millennials accelerated this phenomenon, but the world was still physical enough that a more standard set of tastes and values emerged.   

The defining feature of Gen Z seems to be embracing "corny" stuff like Y2K fashion, emo and post-grunge music, and looking at skateboarding as a way to express themselves and meet people. Not taking it as seriously. Having fun with it and caring a lot less about what is "cool." Being anti-cool is cool now or something haha.

I think these changes can lead to a lot of positives! I came up on the tail end of a much harsher, judgmental, white-and-male-dominated subculture. A lot of the hand-wringing I see from older skaters I think is fundamentally rooted in existential anxiety as they are slowly being pushed aside for a new paradigm.

The kids at skateparks nowadays seem a lot nicer, friendlier, and hyped on most things as opposed to when I was their age. They are the most diverse generation in US history, and are more aware of social issues and current events than their predecessors. 

I'm sure the bean counters at VF Corp ran the numbers and realized that in addition to being a "good look," moving away from the industry formula of taking skinny, primarily caucasian skaters and convincing them the only way to succeed in skateboarding was to move to California and jump down as many stairs/grind the biggest rails possible doesn't translate to dollars as much as it used to.

The teens and twenty-somethings of today are more diverse, and they want to see themselves represented in their subcultures. While reactionaries in the community rant and rave about the latest shoe company ad featuring a woman doing a "sub-par" trick, tens of thousands of girls see that ad on Instagram and get inspired to go out and push their own boundaries.

This only gets more women and girls in skateboarding and elevates the talent pool as a whole. It's crazy to see footage from women's contests even a decade ago vs. now. The skill differential is insane, and women are only continuing to get better and catch up to their male counterparts. This is a HUGE positive.

Let's see the bigger picture here. It's a balance, and there will always be a welcome spot in skateboarding for people who rip and push the discipline to new heights.

I'm very stoked overall on the new, more inclusive and welcoming direction skateboarding has been going for some time now. Sorry for the rant lol.

Fuck Chima and his continued association with known rapist Colin Evans. There is no doubt in anyone's mind in the Sydney and Melbourne skate scenes that he has sexually assaulted multiple women. I find it so performative that magazines like Slam and Free have pages dedicated to the importance of consent but then have no hesitation in tagging him in footage he filmed for Chima's new part. Everything luredbyproskaters posted regarding Colin doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the stuff this pathetic excuse for a human being has done. Chima should be forced to address this and explain why he continues to skate and film with Colin.

I still don't get why people have comments like this. Remember when Jack O'Grady was going to go to Anti Hero?  ::)



Thought the video was solid. Some head scratching decisions in terms of editing. Really enjoyed the Nick Michel part, but was confused with the two weird close ups of the spots before it switched to the trick, and thought some tricks could've benefited with a long lense angle as opposed a fisheye, and vice versa. Is this the first time Daniel Dent has used a HD camera?

Enjoyed Diego, Dustin & ET. Breana had a few ABD's. Surprised we didn't see Glick pop up. I don't think Greg Hunt has that touch anymore, I could see what he was trying to do with the Chima part with those two songs, but I don't think it quite clicked. Phenomenal skating from Chima regardless.

That probably has more to do with Alex Olson than anything else. He didn't really do shit for Vans when he lived locally so surely he wouldn't do much if he lived across the country. And in the grand scheme of things that turned out to be mostly true.

Nick and Chima both had incredible parts, i also enjoyed Breezy & Dustin.

It was refreshing to see some street stuff out of Ronnie.

Rad that Ronnie used Timber Timbre, they have 5 really good albums!

Loved the edit with Dusty Springfield in Chima's part, Half Japanese, as well as Sunny Day Real Estate in Nick's.

Daiki has great trick selection and style.

Great Vans video production as always with them.

Haha. His actual daughter looks like she could definitely be her sister, but Breana has an identical twin sister who now skates too. She's regular foot though. I've seen someone fan out on her thinking it was Breana, which she probably gets a lot now that she's skateboarding.

Just my 2 cents:

1. I have the feeling the more a skater is appealing to a younger crowd the more zoom in and out shit you have. e.g. it was used a lot in the dustin henry part but not in chimas part. Could also depend on the filmer.

2. I love Chima. i was really sad watching this part. With the music and all it seemed like this was his last great part he wanted to do. I really hope i am wrong and we will get more of him in the future.

3.i really liked chimas first line. Skateing over those benches looked like nothing for him. I bet i couldnt even ollie over them.

4. As i mentioned before, i love Chima but the music was just to heavy for me. The edit of his part was a little try hard.

I don't know iam pretty drunk and i will probably eat my words tomorrow.

Notis Aggelis has a solid pop out of smith grinds. The one he did into a wallride off the tree was sick. Breana Geering getting clap back at by her board was hilarious. Stoked to finally see the footy for her Thrasher cover trick. Skating all around in this was insane.

He may have another huge part up his sleeve. I mean sure he's what 32 but I don't think that's an issue these days. He's clearly still so springy and elastic (shout out Roald Dahl) - has a body built for skateboarding really - that he could film another good part for sure.

I’ve been seeing a lot of complaints about spoilers. If you don’t want spoilers get off of Instagram. Straight up been enjoying skateboarding/videos in general so much more since I got rid of that shit. It gets frustrating sitting through a whole video with some friends and some bananas ender comes up and they’re like “oh I saw this on the gram that’s crazy” while I’m sitting there with my mind blown. Wack lol. Get of my lawn.

Nick and Dustin are legends in the making. Japan crew deserve more recognition. And Chima... what a standout. The whole part was fucked and really well put together.

Boggles my mind that he's the dude a lot of people praise for his fashion choices. When he popped on the screen in this I literally lol'd. Buddy looks like a victim of mom trying to work with your skate clothes when she dresses you for a family gathering.

Justin normal kills it with the fits but that shorts and dark shoes one was not it. He’s still the best.

I’ve spent days listening to songs thinking “if only Chima used this”. Seriously bummed on his music.  Can somebody smart do a re-edit to different music please? Thanks

I was hella stoked on the Aussie section. Digby is unbelievably good.

Can’t wait for the rough edits from this..

The zoom in and and out frog music said call it ya know 90’s Whiney grunge is really taking off, I dunno about this one, Chimas part rules perhaps a little too epic on the edit, but anyone else feel skatings going back as long as you film there face and feet?

I know this is controversial but I agree with you and liked Justin way more before he was pro. I thought his Grand Prairie part was good but didn’t seem as original as his stuff prior and his fits are getting pretty bad. Shorts, tucked in shirt, and beanie is a big no. That’s something my Dad would wear and trust me that is not a compliment.

I wasn’t so crazy about how sprawling this edit felt. Diego Todd and Nick Michael sort of got lost in the montage. Chima came through like psycho though, and his music was so cool. He has a sort of Reynolds in how he postures and hucks.
I guess I prefer Greg Hunt Vans offerings.

Hey - no shame in being old, I’m right there with ya (44). I only liked a couple parts of this whole video myself, Chima being the obvious highlight. Dustin was sick too, and Digby. Nick is sick but not really my style, I prefer more classic ledge/tech guys.

Isn't that the charm about his skating and the first thing everything he notices? That and him turning completely before he pops. It's insanely unique. I'd never heard of him until the Pass~Port video, and have now watched everything of his. His part in Heavy Mayo is wonderful -

Do the younger skaters in these vids actually listen to that stuff? Or is it jammed in by some older editor who wants to indulge some nostalgia?
