How do people not murder their filmers after they watch their footage? Literally risk your life and it looks like the first thing your gran ever filmed on her phone.

This! If that part was filmed by strobeck or Ben Chadourne, that would be an instant classic. Btw does Kevin Rodriguez still skates?
Has he released something in the last 2 years?

I think you gotta get with the times player. This style of filming has been the norm for years at this point, and the Strobeck comments are boring AF.

Go back and watch Eastern Exposure 3 and there's a lot of the same zooming going on. Sure coulda been done a little better, but this is some kid in France making a video with his homie, not a staff filmer for a top-tier brand.

People complaining about dynamic zooming when filming kinda sound like an old man yelling at kids to get off his lawn at some point.

French Aidan Mackey was cool tho. Liked the Chinese Nollie to step 50

Lol doesn't take a top tier staff filmer to at least present the spot in an interesting way (or even just get the spot in frame). Clips come out every day that do it fine zoom and all. Some of this is just not good. Kinda like saying Chinese nollie in 2022.

 Legitimate (and probably dumbshit) question:
 Why is the term "chinese nollie/ollie" considered offensive? Is it just because the word "chinese" is used or is there a more negative connotation that I'm unaware of?

always wondered this too. i asked my trusty group chat and the best answer i heard was that it originated from some guys in japan way back when doing them. im guessing the osaka daggers. so saying a chinese nollie is fucked up in hindsight

it's a cheap, fake version of a nollie. Despite it being a cool trick (right now at least), but the 'chinese' part of the name represents things that are not.

There's a reason you don't see many Chinese skaters doing them.

Pointing out less than stellar filming is a legitimate critique of independent projects like these. You start sounding like an old man yelling at a cloud when you go on about their outfits, trick or music selection.

Kids drive culture, but also kids are fuckin up the filming, man. We just want to be able to clearly see you do your insane nollie bumps in your all black getup.

Edit: I thought this was fuckin great, btw. And having watched it twice now, I think some of that zooming stuff does work in this edit, but there were moments that got in the way of me enjoying the skating.

This is literally the only clip Ive ever seen of one, regardless of race.

The idea that this trick is done less by others because *you* assume everyone worldwide calls it the same American slang you do (have heard what translates to pop tart in other countries) is stupid. Maybe a little entitled.


But hey - thanks for managing to speak on their behalf!

What makes it a cheap version?   Its something I see with my eyes (and like a lot) but cant quite explain what my face orbs saw with my word hole.

Thatmini bump no pop Nollie to grind was Fucking incredible. That trick is one of my favorites to do cruising around places.  Doing them to manual is fun too.

There's an old Free editorial about Crack nollies/Chinese ollies. Basically it's says the name was invented in 1982, in SF. First done by Mick Archimedes. Pressing on the nose and bumping off of a crack in the sidewalk. It was called Chinese ollie because it was difficult, like Chinese arithmetic. Noses on boards in '82 were only about 3 inches long and flat, not like the boards of today, so I can see how this would have been significantly harder back then. So I don't think the basis of the name "Chinese ollie" had racist connotations, but who knows.

Thanks for this and no thanks to FSM for not having daily temps listed in the video description.
