I mean, does it really get any better than this? Tom, and Jacob Harris are a combo that is the epitome of tasteful skateboarding.

My expectations were really high before I started watching, but eventually they stopped mattering. At some point I just felt like I was melting into the experience of watching this part. Really cool.

Also loved the homage to the clip of Mike Arnold walking out of the train door.

Intro was funny. ďTom Knox. Tom Knox. Tom Knox. With: Tom Knox.Ē

A supremely likable part. Kudos to Tom and Jacob.

I don't have a single bad thing to say about this part. Perfect trick/spot selection. I love the little touches he adds, like the quick fs boardslide after the bs 360 down the stairs. Hard to pick a favorite clip, he can string lines together in such an interesting way. Loved the line that started with the ollie over the can to back lip, and the quick footed street gap line.

Now that's a class act.

They should try and get Mark Suciu for the next Catfish clip. An edit with Tom Knox and Suciu doing marathon lines and those quick feet combos would be a thing of beauty.

The skating was exemplary, of course. Reliable and somehow full of surprises at the same time. Spot selection on point, full of tricks we've never seen Tom Knox do.

Beyond the skateboarding, Jacob Harris did an amazing job paying homage to their scene's past (Day 1410, the first song, the mop).

This one will be on rotation for a long time.

Incredibly tasteful. Love watching him navigate the gnarly english terrain.

Tom Knox is a treasure. I shouted multiple times watching this in my car alone. Everything about this was perfect but I love the sound of the shitty ground he always seems to be skating on. Jacob Harris will never put out anything subpar in my eyes. Canít wait to watch over and over again. Hope it doesnít rain today cuz this made me wanna skate so badly.

Deleted my original post after watching this back to back.  Ohtight says it better than I can. This really makes me want to go out and skate right now. But maybe a third view on the way out the door.

Wow this was phenomenal. Incredibly creative skating with top notch filming - Jacob Harris really is one of the best.

Definitely the best "crusty" part ever put out. I cant believe he can skate that light-footed on terrain I wouldn't even enjoy walking on.

That back 180 to sw 50-50 on the London tube curved thing is pleasantly burned into my mind. What a great friday this is!

so satisfying to see crusty english spots getting destroyed.

Did he really bonk his nose off the post with that kickflip into the bank?

wow.
what makes this part so special, just like Max Palmer's 917 part, is the little things, the intracacies that no one else would do. the little front board to fakie. The (maybe) accidental nose bonk on the kickflip, make this (already great) part one for the history books. Tom Knox, a beautiful mind.

kickflip nosemanual nollie the gap was exceptional. the little floater on the nollie was so good.

he's gotta be one of the most productive pro's out there! he outs out 10+ minutes of solid footage every year

Tough to roll around without hitting a crack at half those spots. A+
