Craziest tricks in slow motion
This three-minutes of seeing what Zach really does with his board, real-time is faster than the naked eye. Watch through to the end to see each trick at full speed.
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.
Del Mar Skate Ranch – History Part 1 and 2
From RIDE Channel on youtube:
Rare footage and untold stories of the history of Del Mar Skate Ranch in part 1 of SPOTS. Del Mar Skate Ranch was one of the most influential skate parks in the entire world nurturing a group of skaters who have made their mark in skate history including many of the tricks you see today. In part one you will see rare footage and photos of Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, Kevin Staab, Christian Hosoi, Dave Swift, Grant Brittain and many more ripping in the early years of the park.
Here’s Part 2:
Charlie Martin, Arvada Snake Run
During the All Star Adventures 2012 Overnight Skate Camp, coach Tony Marle finally convinced camper Charlie to do a backside air over him, with the Contour Pistol Camera running. See more info here:

New Slow Motion Video
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!
I’ve always loved how Steve Caballero does his smith grinds. They’re all the way on top, grinding the rail, infused with style. I first saw him do them in the original Bones Brigade video Show, 1984. I used to watch it on VHS every morning before school. Sometime, I’ll post a shot of one of the smith grinds from that video.
Here, check out Cab’s winning runs from the Upland Pipeline replica pool in Orange, CA. So smooth, it may make you sick. Be careful. Brush twice to be sure.
Adam Shomsky again captures a whole lot of tricks in Slow-motion. Unfortunately, Ryan passed away recently, but Adam has created a really excellent tribute to him here. You can see Ryan’s style, and especially his technique, as he performs a ton of flip tricks, grinds and slides. Rest in peace, Ryan. I hope some folks can learn something from your movements in life captured here.
