Most inluential and important video parts in skateboarding
« on: November 16, 2022, 11:19:12 AM »
Hey y'all. 19yr old here. I'm a youngin and my knowledge of skateboarding is limited, so I want to know what video parts are classic and a must-watch. Baker 3 and Yeah Right! are probably my favorite videos and to me, they are very important and influential in skateboarding.

There’s a lot!

Jon Allie in Zero Dying to Live came out around when you were born, and that ushered in an era of people flipping into rail tricks like never before.

Mike Carroll - modus operandi, one of the best lines ever in this.

Elissa Steamer - welcome to hell. Put women ripping street on the map

for my generation (born in 90s):

mike mo - fully flared (and MJ)
supreme cherry
dime videos

theres a ton more but those 3 had the biggest impact in my circles, mike mo being a marketable internet friendly guy without needing to chomp handrails that showed how good the kids are getting - got a lot of people into skating lifestyle

cherry for showing how modern videos and brands dont need to be ty evans squeaky clean and theres still room for creativity in skate videos (but this style is now overdone). also cemented skating influence on street fashion

dime for showing that were still playing with a child's toy and we shouldnt take it too seriously and focus on what made skating fun in the first place: using skating as a way to joke and have fun with friends

you all can disagree, just my experience for 2005-2015

This an the FTC video, Mouse, welcome to hell and Trilogy are my favorite videos. Timecode could also be part of that list for me.

Ricky Oyola's part in ee3 is perhaps my favorite par ever. Then these parts come in just after that. Lennie Kirk in Timecode, Guy in Mouse, Lavar in Trillogy, HUF in FTC.

This is just my personal list. People can disagree. Peace out  8)

Arto Saari in Flip “Sorry” is definitely one of the most influential parts (in an extremely important and influential video). That was one of the videos that I remember people checking with the skateshops waiting for them to get copies of when I was younger.  Definitely highly anticipated.

From more of a skating that I’m personally a fan of perspective,  I think Anthony Pappalardo in “Fully Flared” really stood out in stark contrast obviously to a lot of the other skating in the video and kind of set the tone for the direction of skating to come.  In an era where everyone was doing the most technical tech and the biggest gnarly big skating he kind of just simplified things and did good looking tricks at cool spots and did his own thing.  It helped in setting the tone for the style-over-outrageousness vibes that a lot of people like watching today.

I would recommend approaching this the same way that people study art or film history.

1.) Start with the most recent major piece:
We will use 2018’s Blessed for this exercise, but you can argue that one of the earlier Primitive or GX1000 vids is more influential to today’s skating. Watching  Blessed is just easier for this.
 
2.) Look at the recent pieces that directly influenced step 1
Blessed is a sequel to 2014’s Cherry and an homage to the late Dylan Reider, so you should check out:

- Cherry
- Gravis ‘Dylan’
- Cinematographer Project
- Mindfield
- A Time to Shine

If you chose to rewatch blessed after this, you’ll notice a lot of references.


3.) Then you start looking at the earliest major piece from that genre
- I would recommend starting with 1991’s Video days, because that’s when you start seeing a lot of modern editing choices (and you see a young Gonz in contrast to what you saw in the supreme and tws videos), but if you want to go earlier than that you should start with 1987’s Animal Chin

4.) Look at all the major stuff in chronological order until you return to the starting point

Most of which has already been listed

Seems like guy Mariano’s part in video days inspired a whole generation of current pros.

How did no one mention Reynold’s Stay Gold part. When that part dropped it left people speechless. I straight up had goosebumps watching it. The varial heel. The kickflip. Everything

All you need is Jim Greco's part in Baker2G
Is it true?  Or did you read it on the slap message board?

If we are talking influential, Video Days and Questionable. Specifically Gonz in Video Days, and Duffy in Questionable for rail skating. Those are monumental in how they changed things, but the whole on a whole videos were massively impactful.

I'd put up Koston's Menikmati for what it meant for tech rail skating. Of more recent parts, I think Suciu-Cross Continental was very influential for shaping what came after it. While I'm not a fan of the style, its pretty obvious for a ton of recent parts what Cherry did to HD filming.

I don't suspect anyone's going to mention this one any time soon and so I'll do it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixwY_cSbhqc

I think it's a great and accessible entry point to start developing interest in earlier SF skating from that point on (FTC, Adrenalin, Forties, the first Stereo vids, etc.). Not limited to, but in particular.
