For the past couple weeks I've been learning how to fly a drone, this weekend I brought it and my little portable rail out.

Yeah that is sick, the feeling of landing anything into steep short transition like this is the best and that probably felt good too with the proper execution,

No ollie part from above also is neat, had seen it before, wallie blunt to airwalk fakie on a planter is crazy, loved that one.

Random footage from yesterday:

Thanks for the appreciation, you know it. Didn't realize the metal bank looked that good in the moment to be honest or I would have loved to get just a good backside nollie or backside flip on it.

There was a really cool wavy curb nearby too I kept popping satisfying nollies out of slappy noseslides on and then you'd land into a dirt hill to ride down that was really fun but I also didn't film. Wish I could go back but the place is so out of the way and in the sticks that's not very likely any time soon.

I have started to play with some switch tricks the last session and got some new moves, but need to play them more so i could feel comfartable, still stoked though.

Thank you, I appreciate the indulgence, I have to admit the first one is silly but did feel really good, also because it happened really fast.

Thank you, Live is Benjamin Deberdt's website originally (Sugar, Kingpin) but yeah co-running it with him is one of the things I do. Please feel free to DM me if you ever want to talk about it.

@fineslime I loved your edit. Good natural style on everything but I agree varial heelflip line was my favorite, also because you gave ledge front board pop out in the middle some love and it's the best trick no one knows. In fact that was a pretty Rasa Libre line. You do seem surprised to land such a good varial heelflip on the clip too which makes it kind of cool you're still stoked on it all these years later; my favorite part about skate footage is that it doesn't just capture the moves but also the energy. Watching old clips of yourself in particular feels like reliving how they felt for a split second which you're kind of demonstrating here and is quite fascinating. Made me want to go skate.

@silhouette - hey man, thanks for the kind words and I really appreciate you taking the time to watch! telling someone you inspired them to skate is the highest compliment you could give, imo. I was very much influenced by Rasa and that particular style of skating. I even went through a brown/ drab/ olive green and hemp bracelet phase about a year befor that haha.

that footage was filmed when I was 20 (I'm now 33.) during that time, I was living away from home for the first time with my first love. working as a barista for $9 an hour while my girlfriend went to college. my life was still very much focused on only skating. in the apartment we shared, on new years day, I wrote a list of things I wanted to do, and one of them was, "get on stage," and perform stand up comedy... it was about a year later that I actually did, and I went on to consistently do stand up and have somewhat of a small career until 2020.

the person who filmed all that footage was the first friend I made when I moved there, and he introduced me to everyone in the scene. he's now a photographer in Seattle and he is one of the coolest people I've ever met.

I say all that because when you say watching old footage takes you back, yes, that footage takes me back to a particularly amazing time in my life. I haven't seen that footage in years so it was a heavy blast of warm feel good nostalgia.

your clip was fucked up good! that quick feet style takes so much skill and control.

thanks again, pal.

@tkp - that ditch spot is wild! those nollie fs pivot disasters are one of of my favorite qp tricks to do. you can swing them in and then pose the disaster out. I hope you can go back to that 50-50 and get a photo of it.

even though its a park photo with a helmet on, I've always loved this melon grab photo. I was running melon grabs for a looooong time.

Hey Silhouette just wanted to say Live is fantastic. I don't know how I came across it in the mid-2010s from New Zealand but it was my go-to platform for watching skate videos that showed something different to the mainstream available content for years. I don't visit much these days but I should get back there.

Thanks for all your work!
