Just when i thought Aidan and Krods pants couldn't get any worse. Not overly a fan of either of them, but especially when they wear clam diggers covered in patches. Hem an inch above the shoe max imo.

AVE can do no wrong and I loved every millisecond of that footage. I can't wait for some new AA footage.

Seeing AVE do a reg stance big flip was <3
Ave and Guy ripping that curved metal bench was sick but I wish Dill got a trick on it too (Mosaic line style).
This video warmed me up towards Aiden's skating a bit more.

That was good. AVEs footage is amazing. Kevin was dope, nice to see a decent chunk of skating from him again. And I never thought Id be defending Aiden but I find it funny how people complain about him only skating.. the way he does i.e. in dirt, crazy manuals etc. Would you prefer his approach to skating didnt exist and he skated the same way as most other people? I tend to take it for what it is. Im not a die hard fan but hes sick.

I love Aiden

Do you mind me asking why?

He is unique character with his own set of tricks

He is the Sherminator.

I'm a boring grown-up and prefer my fix of AVE footage without the vhs filter, please and thank you.

Amazing skating though, even from K-Rod.

not a fan of "FUCKING AWESOME" or "HOCKEY" at all but must watch all relevant footage and like a handful of their riders. my thoughts...

screen/filter thing is probably an artistic "statement" not worth deciphering. its all too conceivable to me that young impressionable hvx-owners will start doing this to their footage though. would be dope to see the ave stuff raw

hyped for tom o'reilly to have a clip in this just in case it helps him in any way

how is the aidan guy is so polarizing? he has a fire switch manual game, dresses a little 'weird' (shit looks dumb to me too but people get away with way worse these days), skates for newer gen companies... seems entirely uncontroversial. maybe the fact that so many weird obsessive fanboys and cringey kids in the comments are constantly posting shit like "Yooooo Dill, when we gonna see that Aidan footy tho bro? YOu're holding out on us, Dill-man!!" makes him an easy target. idk either way just let the dude be, damn. at least he skated to amebix instead of the whole self deprecating emo/pop punk routine.

great skating, not unbearable soundtrack, shitty visuals, very contrived 'heavy' and 'mysterious' image of overrated brand

really don't understand the Aiden hate. dude rips crazy spots, has unique trick selection, skates fast as fuck and doesn't care about getting destroyed.

he's also got good style on the board imo and I really fuck with his long manuals , fakie / switch , down city blocks, or the one from the road into the dirt hill was fucking incredible.

Krod had his best shit in here (from what I've seen of him)

Aiden did a manny down a dirt hill,shine on buddy.

AVE made me feel like I was a kid watching Photo for the first time again. Everything he did was magnificent

Don't mind the filter, but I will when there's a whole Supreme Strobeck zoom edit.

Skating was good. AVE was great. All the faux punk pants are pretty bad.

Can someone explain the aesthetic differences between FA and Hockey to me?
[close]
If you liked nu metal in high school you like Hockey, if you talked to girls you like FA.

and i loved girls that looked like fred durst, so i like them both

Aidan gets hate because like most people on FA/Hockey he went pro without putting any serious work and time in.

He had some great tricks in Propeller, but that was AVE's best part since Mindfield in my opinion. Got me feeling really hyped up. What an awesome surprise for this year.

That filter, however, did absolutely nothing to improve this video, and I just kept waiting for it to end. Kind of a shame to do that over all this great footage (especially AVE's). Maybe they'll release raw stuff without it. Not gonna hold my breath on that, though.

AVE is timeless. That big flip out of the curb cut going mach 10 was insane. everything about that was great.

This is definitely Kevin's best footage.
Ave is still the best.
I almost puked at 10:24

who cares dawg, they turned pro because Dill felt like it. It's his company, there's other companies where people put in time, effort, and work to go pro. i get where you're coming from, but not every company is gonna operate the same.

That was really, really good. I tend to like most anything Hockey release does but this was a lot of fun. AVE is showing everyone how it's to be done. This was the most entertained I've ever been by Aiden and K-Rod. Aiden's seems to always be skating way out of his depth, which gives a lot of his trick more tension.

I'm not sure about the filter. It didn't ruin it, which it certainly could've. I wonder if I would have felt this footage was as raw without it, though. And I wasn't thrilled about AVE's song, but then again it didn't ruin it.

I'm gonna go watch it again.

Seems to be a sort of film-out process, but with tape(?) Probably no statement to decipher, just an aesthetic choice. Honestly, I'm a fan of how the footage looks. Gain the texture of tape and some pretty distortion in the color. cool.

all the skating was dope and I liked em all.

but if i have to watch a strobeck zoom face into the shins again for a trick where all the style is lost in a dumb fucking angle for vibes and aesthetic im gonna mail the dude a catalogue of fisheyes. vx1000 would also give that VHS look without it feeling contrived

again dope skating, AVE is an inspiration

skating was sick, but fuck that filter. if you want that aesthetic get a fuckin hi-8 camera and do it right. the fake grain made it feel like some stupid instagram shit.

Crazy how AVEs whole section was pretty much at the same (high) speed. Such a good like pace to it.

hate that i felt like i just watched closed circuit tv but otherwise i loved it. ave footage was psycho, especially how fast he was going on that downhill switch tre. aidan's pants notwithstanding, kid is interesting to watch and at least punk enough to pick the forgotten said of the faith/void split, so respect for that. he's also one of the few pros currently doing it that slams that hard and also skates reg, nollie and switch. also i think it's neat that every hockey sountrack features clearly broken cymbals

The filter wont be so bad if its a one time thing. But many many kids are gonna copy it to the extreme.
