I tired to come at this with an open mind like "maybe its an artistic choice" or whatever but holy shit this part stinks. It's edited like a back to school ad for a store in the mall. The shots of him just pushing that get sped up only to amount to nothing?? The shots of him walking in the tunnel??

A buddy and I were going through skate vids we used to watch as kids in early 2000s... we got to label kills which I fondly remember as the video with Jason Adams that introduced me to the world of slappies. Then we skipped around and watched Mike V's part... bro are you serious. Its literally 3 minutes of him pushing as hard as he can LMFAO. That's quite literally the entirety of the part, he does maybe like one or two ollies and the rest is just him hauling ass in the middle of random streets.
We rewound it and watched it again and watched in disbelief, pretty sure I was in tears laughing at the end of it.

Hard to believe that it even qualifies as a part... but there it is. Unbelievable. Any other parts to match this in terms of pure minimal effort?

Herman in Stay Gold.


Just kidding. Vincent Alvarez in Pretty Sweet just because of that non-NWA song. So fuckin annoying. Personal runner up is Guyís part in the same video because of the disgusting, easy mode in Skate 3-esque combos. Also the song

Justin Roy in Art Bars wasn't the greatest. Robbie McKinley in the DC video didn't do much for me. Southie WHL.

Jordan Richter in Video Days really is it.

Didn't Gareth Stehr have an entire video about his toe jam or something?   I'll go with his part in that.

The worst thing about that Mike V part wasnít even the skating.  It was the posturing and the brooding in the intro looking like heís about to go into battle against the jocks four random ocks.

Truly despise Gareth Stehr and to a lesser extent Justin Roy - think Roy's part in Art Bar's was one of the first times as a kid I realized that if you can't do a trick and make it look good you just shouldn't do it.

Never understood the Josh Harmony hate personally, he does some pretty boring stuff (the back to back 180's over a gap that anyone else would have bee fs flipping or bs flipping) but there's also lots of solid stuff in that Ride the Sky part - pretty impressive fs blunt on handrail, a rare for the time proper fs crook on a decently large rail, that gap on the wavy ledge thing is pretty nice. Plus his part in Good vs Evil was one of the first times I heard Sebadoh so he gets a pass for that

If Iím remembering correctly at one point in his Art Bars part Justin Roy does a switch flip down a small set that doesnt really pop and kind of just awkwardly rolls.  It may be the worst looking trick Iíve ever seen in a professional video part.  That being said J Roy had some sick backlips and Art Bars is one of my sleeper favorite videos.

Such a good video.  I thought it was one of the rare instances where the b-roll/artsy footage actually worked and added to the video.  Great music too.

Sven Kilchenmann's skating isn't bad at all but this has to be the worst song ever used in a skate vid. I remember always skipping this part as a kid. terrible music=terrible part imo

The problem with this part is it's just relentlessly pretty ok. The song is repetitive and so is the skating with just every trick possible done down a 7-10 stair and some pretty ok ledge and Manny's. Like he just ticked every trick off a list.

That line at 0:37 makes me think that if Mark Suciu existed when I was a kid that would be the type of stuff I would've been doing "playing" and pretending I was him skating down the street like I had quick feet or something.

There's a little Jason Adam's if he was autistic vibe I get from some of the tricks too.

unless I'm missing some piece of context that validates making fun of little kids, I always felt bad for Chris Branagh and Billie Waldman for getting made fun of as much as they did. That layback disaster on the brick bank that Billie Waldman does in Rubbish Heap does obviously deserves some pushback however.

Please stay forever Lhotse I love you.

Oh that's definately an aspect of pro skating that's bugs me more and more the older I get.
Been watching docos on pre euro South American cultures and pre Christian euro and there's a common thing of the elders just selecting a peasant seemingly at random to live as a "god". Like a whole group of peasants can work hard and do everything "right" but some get nothing and some get chosen. Reminds me of how pro skating works. (These "gods" often get sacrificed so there's also that)

The song was better than the part. I didnít get it then and I still donít get it why everyone thought that was a SOTY level part when it was the fugliest slides and grinds he could do

IdkÖhave you guys seen Roger Mancha in City Stars - Street Cinema?
[close]
I'm guilty of liking this part (or at least don't think it deserves the hate it gets) but it regularly gets taken down off YouTube so the comments section must be brutal.

I guess what does it for me is the nollie bs flip in the line where his arms nearly touch the ground before he pops, like on some Tiago shit, but then its like 6 inches off the ground. When he lands he almost swerves into a powerslide and almost bails. Like dude, just refilm the lineÖ

He also has what I believe to be a fakie hardflip but I canít tell his stance at allÖso not sure. But he lands with heel drag on one foot and toe drag on the other and then tic tacs out of it to stay on. Heís obviously consistent and Legend in Brazil. It just feels like the City Stars part was thrown together hastily without any effort.

He also does like switch flip grabs on vert in that part that look perfect somehow lol.

Ha Carlos is sick! The second half of the video picks up and there are some cool tricks in there plus his spot selection is on point and I bet he had a lot of fun making this.

I agree with all of this.  Iím just saying that I know this isnít the point of skating, but if in some alternate universe, were I to judge this part like it was street league, this wouldnít score too high.

oof you found a contender. Never understood the love beehive got for his skating, but he is a nice guy.

There's also the clip where he switch ollies some little gap and I don't even think taps his tail and ollies at all, it was more like an acid drop. We used to laugh at a lot of his clips in that back in the day.

Couldnít resist - I just rewatched his part.  He has that swithflip, the switch ollie you mentioned, and a kickflip that all donít really pop.  He also has a switch backside flip off a ledge that looks like itís the first one he ever tried on an obstacle.  On the other hand he has a great kickflip front nose, nollie bs 180, and kickflip back lip in there.  Those Marc Johnson 2ís epitomize that whole era of Tum Yeto skating in my mind.

To be fair he does a backflip (Miller flip) in a full pipe and ollies the huge flat gap at baldy. And does a hand plant on a handrail.
