well skating a lot of downhill "a la magenta" is actually my plan now that my foot is healed! unfortunately it's supposed to start snowing today or tomorrow and winter is just starting so........

anyways I'd be curious to see the Gerwer hill in person! the one time I came to SF the hills shocked me, video doesn't do 'em justice.....

Yeah I visited SF once with an exgirlfriend and, although I took my board and hit up a few parks, I never even considered trying to bomb any of those hills. I was more amazed by the sheer size and length of them than of the redwoods. Its crazy how most follow along filming while someone is bombing them doesn't capture how steep they are at all. I thought Franks was a pretty good angle though although Im thinking that was prolly only about half of the actual hill. Im assuming the bail at that point was planned???

Does the use of the Deliverance music in the full pipe section mean that Julien is actually Inbred Jed?

Indeed that's the very top of Kearny Street if you do the second hill you blast into where like 4 major streets intersect with twice as much speed it's basically suicide

this video was fucking awesome. made me want to go explore for spots in random ass places fail at dropping in on mega transition and then go camp. the HD video really helped make all the scenic spots pop. it kept me going wtf through the whole video.

dan wolfe totally killed it. that loud screech from chris phanners looong 5050 was siiick. sound was perfect, all the songs were great. it starts off a bit weird but then it hits it groove reallly quickly.

this video gave me the same feeling as the supreme video but without all the pretentious horseshit. like some mix between cherry and a beauty and the beast tour. seems like they actually like skating and it isnt something getting in the way of becoming socialite trash. the way they organized parts was awesome, its mostly them but with bits of everyone else. less confusing than cherry.

that hill bomb was nuts! gerwer is still a beast, more than the hill bomb all the legit street tricks were sick just because it was unexpected. i like that it was included.

theres literally too much good stuff to comment on,  its large transition and good vibes.

also this screencap of julien at the end explains my feelings on andy roy better than I can:



i would buy this video in a heart beat. hands down best video of the year. I would say Cherry seemed intimidating but Destination Unknown made me genuinely psyched to go do something.

Did anyone else really enjoy the cinematography especially in the intro, idk it was just perfectly combined with the song they choose and instantly got me psyched to watch the rest of the video.

Also did i miss the Andrew Allen footy? i was waiting for it.

^He had a few tricks in Robbie Russo's part. I assume most of his (and Chris Pfanner's) footage is going towards the Vans video.

it was during the Robbie Russo/Siouxsie part, right before Phanner.

Hahaha, Grosso's laugh is priceless. I still remember Speed Freaks.

Best part!  Had me hysterical.. I actually hated Jeff Grosso for a long time after seeing Speed Freaks, he just seemed like such a kook.   So glad that subsided.... dude is the best a huge inspiration for those of us nearing 40 and getting a beer gut.

Funny to think of all the comments and 'anti-hero-doubters' over the last year or so (myself included)!!!

Real glad to see Andy and Frank come through as much as they did but everyone killed everything. I was initially a little wary knowing there wouldn't be that much Stranger and just the idea of an Anti Hero video w/o Cardiel shutting down every spot still seems weird but all the dudes plus Cocksparrer and GG and Siouxsie and closing with Raney and Peni... Whole thing was pretty phenomenal.

From what I understand of Peabody, he would rather build parks with Grindline than pursue skateboard super-stardom.

So damn good.
Still trying to figure out why they wasted footy on Andy Roy riding a skateboard.
He's a great mascot and all but really? Stick to the demented drunkard routine.

This is pretty much a perfect video. Great music.
Love how the slow mo and second angles are kept to a bare minimum.
I would pay money to see the Hewitt/Gerwer comedy duo in a nightclub.
It's great how even with all these new young tranny rippers; that there is still something really special about TNT. And you would think him and Pfanner are holding onto their best stuff for the Vans video. That should be nuts.
My only small complaint is Grant doing a fs 5.0 over the hip at Fort Miley. That is bordering on sacrilege in my book. Do it for fun or to pay homage; but don't film it and put it in a video. I'm sure he is capable of a fs tail or smith. Better yet, do a fs nosegrind tailgrab and take out your almost teammate.
Anyways, this video rules. And I will be watching it multiple times.

Take another look at that Miller flip over the barrier.  I've always enjoyed his skating, even 20 years ago when he rode for Santa Cruz.  In all of his footage he looks so hyped and really giving his all to get a trick.  Dude seems like a nightmare to hang out with, but I like to watch the snuggle bandit ride his board.

TNT's part was a welcome return to form. I had gotten the sense he had slowed considerably (and he probably has) but this was high quality stuff.

Seeing him skate at his peak (around the Tent City era) was truly an amazing thing. Completely instinctual, a new line every time, maybe bailing 5 times the entire day, going huge.

Lots of dudes give their all and get hyped to skate, and that's a wonderful thing.
It all boils down to the old adage, "it's not what you know, it's who you know"

I hope TNT murders the Vans video. I know tranny has its rebirth within the past years but I want him to show these guys whats up. For whatever reason, his In Bloom part is in my top 10 skate parts. Just love the whole part with the song, the yells, and even his ender breaking that thing in the pool.

Initially I saw it as in poor taste too, but the more I think about it/nerd out on it the more I believe it was done either to pay homage to Phil or done spontaneously and just happened to get caught on camera. The footage, for one, looks like it was filmed in the heat of the moment and possibly on an iphone. He might not have even known it was being filmed. I doubt the mode of thinking was "fuck yeah, gonna go to Miley and film this 5-0 that Phil Shao did 18+ years ago, and it'll definitely go in the new antihero video, and that'll show em all". From what I've read and heard, Grant more seems like a guy who doesn't care about formalities and just worries about skating things he wants to and having fun. Lastly, Grant didn't edit the video, Julien Stranger did (along with dan wolfe's help this time according to the credits). If anyone's to be criticized, its Julien, although he probably put it in thinking that it was some fucked good skating. If you wanna overanalyze it like me, consider that when Phil died Julien honored him in an ad saying "Goodbye Phil The Straight up Best Skater I Knew"; Julien clearly held Phil Shao's skating in high regard, so maybe putting the 5-0 in the video was a way of saying to the viewer (and phil) that grant is a boundlessly gifted skateboarder and possibly now the best skater Julien has ever known.

All that and from what I've read and watched Phil seems like the kinda guy that would have loved to see grant grind that bar, regardless of history

Edit: Honestly though, the 5-0 was probably put in the video because he did it so why not

Fucking awesome video.

I'd still rather watch Robbie over Raney any day though.
