incessantly complaining about modern filming styles is annoying. if you hate the way skate videos look nowadays just stop watching them... chances are some of your favorite videos were filmed like shit anyhow

People paying $2000 for a 20 year old camera which records in 640x480 gonna criticize others' filming.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

That's a lot of words to say "I like Strobek"
i'm not talking about any one filmer. strobeck obviously sucks now and took that style to an almost unwatchable extreme, but people will complain about any HD video with just a single clip focusing on the skater's lower half

also, you know what strobeck films like. what is there to accomplish by watching a video of his and pretending to be shocked by the filming? again, if it bothers you that much, just don't watch it. problem solved.

Sure but, I mean, if we stop complaining and just ignore anything we don't like...then what the hell are we gonna talk about around here? Might as well just shut the whole forum down!

Greg Ginner rips and his videos are (besides being annoying clickbait youtuber fluff) kind of entertaining. I'm as normal skater (loathe to use the word 'core') as the next guy but dude just jumps on Jamie Thomas rails for throwaway clips and he's not a pro or anything. Just a Michael Rappaport/Larry Bird looking goon who skates and talks to the camera.

Did you mean Garret Ginner? I had no idea who that was but I saw him listed as an FA rider on the FA wiki article and had to look him up

I say "3 flip" but for an ollie I'll say the whole "fs 360'd" or whatever. What makes my penis flacid is when people abbreviate 180 to "1".
Even more offensive, recently someone said "fs 2 to bsts" short for 270 to backside tail.
Oh and "backside" boardslide or noseslide. the bs is silent.

It's a ssfs22ssbsts if you go to fakie and a ssfs22fsns if you bring it back to regular.

Then you get that whole "do you mean to fakie like to regular or back to switch?" Thing that always comes up with switch whatever to fakie

It all sounds like bs to me

i still dont get why it ever happened. ive very rarely had board width affect flip tricks. If anything, i think length and wheelbase have the most effect on flip trick consistency

I think it was just an experimental phase. Skateboarding came from a decade on huge shaped boards and then still quite large football shapes that unlocked those crazy flip tricks. Then overnight the popsicle appeared and I guess everybody thought the smaller they were the better they‘d flip. Eventually the double and triple flips got old and people found out you could do a nice kickflip on an 8 inch just as well (and with more style) so the boards got back to what we have now had for years, the standard seems to hover between 8 and 8.5 but the experimental era is over.
why come?

I think the small boards were fine for what the average skateboarder was doing at the time. From like 2015 to the start of this year Id ride a 7.75 again probably 2/3 of the times I'd skate and I don't think they're too bad. Just with how parks are now there's no real point but if youre just skating some ledges or a Manny pad it's fine.
Feel like until about 2003 (then to 08 is a bit of a grey area) it was just about moving forwards with boards, shoes, clothes, whatever

I don't think it's a good thing for skateboarding to grow.
It's too often used as justification for selling out, and making money while making the culture a little bit less cool than it was.
