Seeing that second angle actually makes me upset that it wasn’t used. It really emphasises the size of the gap-out in a way that can’t be translated in the front-on shot.

I have a low-key issue with that ender spot in that it looks kinda safe for how much drama it is being treated with (enders and QS reposts galore). Yeah he's fast and it's long but aren't the bank to one side and the flats between to the stairs relatively safe bail scenarios? Feels like there's so many much more dangerous spots in there. But maybe there's something I'm not getting.
[close]

the fact that only 3 people did a grind/slide down it says alot, every big named pro skated that spot.
i think its just really hard because you have to go super fast and gap out to it, than you have to make it all the way down because its quiet long.
i think its a lot cooler than a big ass kink rail but thats just my two cents
[close]
I second the sentiment about the grind. The gap is kinda weird, since the ledge is below your starting level. It might be safer to bail than a kink rail, but the speed and ferocity alone make this a killer ender. .
[close]

all the said things, and may I add its a very crowded spot, lots of people passing through, etc.

would also add that crook seems specifically hairball compared to other tricks for a few reasons (some already sort of alluded to):

1. the weight shifting is pretty awkward because of the gap out. he's getting on to the ledge lower than where he takes off and that's maybe fine for a 50-50 but when you're landing on the nose it's pretty awkward to shift your weight that way and end up lower than where you took off. if you've ever tried to do a crook on a really small curb this might make sense. personally, i've always found it way harder to do a crooked grind on something super short (or even below ground level) than on something taller just because of the way the weight shifts naturally when you ollie.
2. it's pretty steep. again, the weight shifting of popping from your tail to landing on your nose on something that steep is really weird, and then hanging on to it for that long and trying not to either slip out, stick and fall forward, or accidentally pop up onto the top seems super hard.
3. finally, potentially most importantly, getting shot out of a super steep incline like that on your nose in crook position at mach 10 and trying to pop out and land correctly (straighten your board and weight back to upright from the leaning forward crook position) seems so hard. feel like you would just smash into the ground super easily

to add: you guys see that grate he basically lands onto? get launched into that going full speed with full commitment and you're getting chewed up, maybe destroying a finger or two

WOW is it just me or was that the fastest a 4 minute part has gone by??

That crook made my jaw drop, that shit was insane. The roll away through the rocks at mach V, like HOW??  Just goes to show how fast skating is just so entertaining. Got me excited to see what pedro is about to drop.
Yeeesssss. I was going to say the same thing. An instant rewatch. Such a wild part.

Jack is a world class skater who chooses to wear his hair in a 1940s/1990s middle part (or as we used to say at school, bum part).

This is very endearing.

You’re hairs looks like Shemp’s, as my father used to say.  Looking back, he was right. And for 30 years I thought he was saying my hair looked like Sh1t.  He was correct on both accounts to be honest.

Feel like some of his other parts have been much better but this was still great. Fifty into the gravel and gap to crook were very buck

I’m guessing since the obstacle is descending down, you wouldn’t get on until you’re below where you took off

I like that he smacks hit tail going of curbs.

In my world that the first trick of every line I've ever done.

Probably why I hate skatebloarding video games.

If you can't put your weight on it and "Gimp" the curb it's not actually simulating shit. Your made a distraction from the art that actually matters.

It's wrong.

When I was a kid. No pop nollie of every curb took over Gimping for like a few years.

The original super style enhancer drug is def bang your tail and make people know you're in motion.
Ive managed to combine the two over COVID.
Now I barge and when I get close to the curb drop I fast no pop piv nollie 80 and switch Gimp.

Feels amazing but if you get your truck on it won't make a Slap noise.

Noise is most of my style.
I like to make a fuss. I can raise an eyebrow of all and every passerby first t every t simultaneously.

They can't help it. It's instinctual towards survival.

My Big ass glasses do that too. I make prey ass humans uncomfortable with my electrics.

imagine he just sat on that footage from 2 years ago and released it all this year. he would have won soty for sure. thats why its kinda dumb...

i am not really understanding how people are saying that crook was easy / low. shit looks high as hell to get on then low as hell to get off, two hardest possible combinations  ;D

thank you.

I'm honestly suprised at the amount of people making it sound like this was some earth shattering part.  cool part, a couple crazy things, but like, saying its part of the year over so many better ones, liek Rob Pace, is bonkers

Yep great skating, needs to rethink the hairstyle but good on him for trying something different.
As I bald, I have to find inner peace and not lose my shit seeing what some are choosing to do with their locs.
