Rodney Mullen on Hacking Communities and Context vs Content

Rodney Mullen speaks to an audience of non-skaters.

Here’s an excellent talk from last May at TEDx USC – by one of skateboarding’s originators: Rodney Mullen. Some of the topics and concepts he brings up really speak to the creative methods of skateboarding, and how skaters learn and “hack” the existing concepts of skateboarding. It’s a great talk, a little over 15 minutes. Though Rodney’s speech was given to an audience of non-skaters, it really resonates with skateboarders in that they have a another layer of experience that perhaps the audience that heard the talk, couldn’t understand. But, I’m sure they got a taste of it.

Adam Shomsky, in his skateology series, again shows us the power of slow motion photography and it’s ability to show us more than the human eye can see (at regular speed).

Awesome trick.

New Slow Motion Video

Redlake N3 High Speed Camera

Adam Shomsky has done it again, this time revealing a quick view of his Redlake N3 High Speed camera setup. I clipped this still from his video, which continues Adam’s tradition of editing smooth slow motion video of styley skating and chill music. Jesse’s kickflips are some of the best, and the slow motion footage shows just how he does them. My favorite in this video might be his kickflip blunt to fakie kickflip out. Sick!
