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.

Aidan gets hate because like most people on FA/Hockey he went “pro” without putting any serious work and time in.
[close]
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.
[close]
why care? Because it makes other pros' hard work look like a joke. You think Cookie was stoked to see Sean, Sage, and Aidan go pro when he was working his ass off skating harder than any of them combined but was still am? How about Robbie Brockel? What if you were pro, but suddenly you're competing with people far below your skill level for a spot on a company even though they're also "pro"? And they get the spot instead of you only because they dress and act trendier? How could you possibly think that would be "well deserved?" without any indignation?

Yeah I get it companies work on different timelines and there's no hard set checklist but do you seriously think Aidan deserves a board? Imagine him at a demo where half of the locals at any park could skate better than him.
1.) Skateboarding is not a meritocracy. It is an industry, like any other, and sometimes will make decisions you perceive as "unfair"
2.) These pros aren't as insecure and prissy as you think they are.

You seem like you're projecting and puttin words into good ol' Cookie's mouth.
Chill out, it's grown men riding a wooden toy.
Shalom.

anyways... this was super sick!!!
AVE's part was fucking perfect and K-Rod gave us some of his most stylish and crazy skating yet
I am definitely a fan of Aidan, loved this part and I think it's the best thing he's put out, maybe even rivaling his 917 part.
The old video effects were something I thought was cool, it didn't fuck with me that much. I feel like FA/Hockey are trying to differentiate themselves from Supreme, and make the videos feel and look differently. I think that artistic decision was just FA trying to experiment with different techniques to see what sticks. It's hard to rise out of the Strobeck shadow.
Cool vid, good songs, and AVE!!!

ave is older than shit and putting out some of the best footy out there. that fucking switch nose blunt, switch nose slide 360 out, SPEEEDY switch 3flip, tail to front nose!
K rod never seems to be out of surprises, I really enjoy his spot selection and the way he can pop out of slides with speed, in an almost hjalte sort of way.
and FUCK, i love aidan's manual combos. he's so fluent going from reg to switch and back

I loved watching AVE skate
Damn he’s good !

I prefer K-Rod with hair, him and Aidan are not my favorite but their skateboarding is clearly different and gnarly to say the least. I don’t care about their outfits, even if I’m not into it I don’t care, it’s their thing.

At first I liked the « we filmed a screen / monitor » gimmick but after 14 minutes my eyes are dry so I don’t know if I really liked this concept

Yeah the video “effect” didn’t do it for me either. Gave me some jim greco latest film’s vibes but not in a good way. Let benny handle shit.

U sure? Didn’t see his name unless it’s a pseudonym. Then again there’s no “editor” credit what do i know

Benny filmed the majority of the video and he edited it. He uses a few pseudonyms (George Pukas), most of the credits in FA/Hockey edits aren't real names.

I refused to watch after the first 10 seconds then came back and skipped to the skating and really enjoyed it. Wasn’t bothered by the “filter”. More bothered by the zoom angles. Happy to see good krod footy again. AVE is great but I’m not a fan of the sw crook kickflip to regular. Aiden is fine.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

The filter reminds me of when people upload full movies onto Youtube but try to avoid copyright.

AVE footage was incredible.

Has AVE done that switch krooks half cab flip out before or am I just thinking of Elijah doing it in AVE cosplay?

I watched it 3 times and will watch it tomorrow morning before I go skate. Thoroughly enjoyed all this.

I liked it minus the way it was filmed.

Also anyone else noticed AVE was still skating the same bench that him and Dill used for The DC Video and Mosaic? Not that I have an issue with that.

I'm too lazy to screenshot it, so here are some links with timestamps

honestly couldnt get through the video because of the quality/filter on the whole video. quality could be compared to a pirated movie from china. looks too crazy for me.

Good shit - he can certainly keep the audience engaged

I've read a couple of people say this is K-Rod's best footage, but what about his last part in the Polar video?
