Was that the best street footage ever put out by a 40 year old? All due respect to Reynolds and some of these other guys but itís not like any of them are putting out the best footage of their careers at 40 plus. Some of the AVE stuff in that video was better than his Propeller part.

I was stoked on the K Rod footage. Really liked his gap up to backtail on the tree planter that that he popped/shot out of to get back on the ground. Just a cool clip.

Aiden turned pro for 917 before leaving for FA, just to remind people.

A few years ago, Colin Read did a promo for Open Skateboards (a very small company) that was based on the premise that you were watching the promo through a VX viewfinder. But he made it clear that that was the concept and it was a brief promo so it didnít wear our its welcome. I canít find it online though.

I stopped this video before Aiden and skipped past the interstitial parts so I didnít mind the effect too much but could definitely see why most disliked it.

loved Kevin's section
but he's not popping out.
They put a slanted piece of wood to let him "powerslide" out which is kinda disappointing

Very hyped on the Kev footage.

Honestly: at first I was a bit underhwelmed because he makes it look so easy.
Until a friend said 'Evaluate each trick seperately...'. And I was  blown away.

AVE footage?
INCREDIBLE in my opinion. He still gives it all.

I wonder how Dill feels about Ave still skating at this level. That was one of the best parts this year, amazing.

Good footage ruined by some atrocious vaporwavesque Luis Mora shit, minus Sailor Moon. Music wasn't doing it for the most part either.

I don't really care about Aidan, too gimmicky for my taste
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

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?

This edit was the best all year...
Krod and Aidan are the David Bowies of modern skating.
Anyone saying otherwise are lost in their own age and stubborness.
They both have a mystique that make them stand above most of their arguably more skillful piers (Hjalte, Max, Cyrus, Louie, Tyshawn etc).
Their skating is totally unique, fresh and defies "classic abilities" and inspires individuality and style, which makes them relatable for skaters who dont go out everyday and try to get hammers.
Do u have to make a tre flip followed by a back tail in baggy pants and white shoes to be accepted in here?
They are extremely talented and entertaining to watch, end of story.
Neither of them really use Instagram or seem to milk their own image as all the "coolest brands, photographers" are willing to do it for them.
This is not hard to understand considering how fuckin rad they both look on their boards.
And none of them seem to divert into other niches where they donīt really have anything to offer besides vague pseudo intellectualism and shitty rap music.
I dont accept the hate on the purposefully grainy quality either. Seems to fit the overall FA/Hockey art direction well. Artsy shit was always important in the skatin community so why are people hating on them for havin a direction and an aesthetic at all. They blessed us with another edit that made every other clip this year seem irrelevant. They deserve the hype.

Can someone explain the aesthetic differences between FA and Hockey to me?

If you liked nu metal in high school you like Hockey, if you talked to girls you like FA.

From what Iíve heard itís not a ďfilter.Ē Most of the hockey footage is recaptured to film. This one was a little over the top for sure, it looks way better in the last thing they put out for AAís authentic highs.

K-Rodís back 3 on fish gap was fucked

Super happy with this. Ave delivering parts like this at his age is nuts. That super vertical sw noseblunt on the green bench definitely stuck with me. K Rod's part was damn good dude's trick selection is the perfect amount of artsy yet effective also happy to see a trick from John. And Aidan I actually enjoyed his part the most his long ass mannys and skating shit he has no business is always fun to watch. And of course dirt hills and cheesy crust pants. Good shit overall. Didn't care about the filter, could still see more than a VX so it's whatever.
If you think Ipath Cats look good you need to be castrated.

I'm not saying AVE is on steroids, but his slugging percentage jumping up in his late 30's-40s is sus. Either that or he's stealing signals

AVE  is on hard boiled eggs. Lots of them.

K Rod is the sickest skateboarder out right now.  mysterious, handsome, stylish, interesting.  yum!

whole video was awesome and loved some of the unique editing and transitions.

Aiden is ....not at a professional level. very much last part in a local video vibes

Filming the TV made my head hurt. And kudos to whoever said Aidan is "working with what he's got," spot on. Kevin and AVE's parts were incredible.

Also, what's with the pants police around here? I love clowning a weird outfit but y'all seem to take it personally. Super glad people switch it up, brown cords and half cabs get boring.

U sure? Didnít see his name unless itís a pseudonym. Then again thereís no ďeditorĒ 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.

Well Conrad Hall is one of the best DPs of all time (butch Cassidy to Road to Perdition) which is esp egregious on something that looks like this. 

George Pukas/Lucas makes more sense in terms of ďwhy did you present this piece this way when itíd be so easy for you to give it to us the way we wantedĒ
