Is DVS “Skate More” the worst skate video?
« on: June 27, 2022, 06:58:16 PM »
Just rewatched for the first time in a long time, this shit sucks. Sort of a wack team, really stale tricks, a lot of bad style (Huf excluded). Just a harsh period in skating in general. Is there a worse video?

Gonna have to heavily disagree here - dill’s skate more part is incredible, one of my favorite parts of all time. My favorite era of dill as a matter of fact - zered had a great footage, obviously huf, and daewon’s part was also one his all time best. Also not to forget Kerry Getz’s essentially last part of his career, which had some heavy bangers.. I always thought that nollie flip going backside off that ramp/bank was one of the best ever. In fact let’s start an is Kerry Getz still alive thread.

Edit- coming back to mention Chico’s part and Jeron Wilson skating to let it whip, if that doesn’t get you in the groove then shame on you. Sure lots of the skating may not be as impressive as today’s skating, but remember it was 2005, the standards were not what they were now, a blissful time to remember in skateboarding IMO.

It has Daewons greatest part it in, so no, not the worst.

Jeron, Chico, Busenitz, Dill, and dare I say Jereme Rogers all had great parts.

Still a better video than The Storm. Also Darkstar Battalion exists.

It feels like the weird mid-generation of skating where the 90s guys were aging out and the young bucks hadn’t found their style and weren’t progressing yet. Most of that footage would be throwaway footy in “yeah right”

Not even close to worst video. Obviously subjective, but it's one of those vids I can't watch start to stop no skipping

Just watched the whole thing because of this thread.  Pretty awesome video tbh.  Mikey’s front shove front crook was mind blowing at the time.

He had a full part in Inhabitants (2007), 2 years after Skate More (2005).

But there’s also Bill Withers, Dazz Band, Cass McCombs, and Jamiroquai to balance it out.

The fact that Berra presumably had access to The Faint’s entire catalogue to pick from and landed on that song should have raised my suspicious about Berra’s lameness and decision making many years ago…

I’ve talked up some of the individual parts on other threads, but as a whole Label Kills and Blackout had some objectively lower skill level (without being especially stylish or cool) skating - when compared to the content other pros were putting out at the same time periods

No, it has one of Daewon's defining parts that alone stops it from being one of the worst. If I had to think of one that stands out it has to be one of the last couple transworld videos where they butchered everyone's footage trying to be overly stylized in VX.

The worst video will always be Birdhouse the Beginning.

Skate More is pretty good at best and okay at worst. The Zered/Busenitz part set to the wizard is worth the price of admission alone.

A part with Gonz guest tricks, nonetheless. Skate More wasn’t my favorite, but it’s far from the worst.

Also, to whoever made the comment about Daewon getting SOTY because of the ender part, I’d like to point out Foy got SOTY after putting out that Ty Evans Flat Earth part and that is easily one of the worst videos of all time.

Alex Olson & Gino too! I actually think it's a criminally underrated part. Definitely one of my favourites. The video as a whole is fine. The Monty Python intros were always kind of weird to me. Also they never bothered to make region free copies of this, so when our shop got it, they got about 30 copies that wouldn't work.
