Tricks OK / Tricks Not OK.
Welcome Brett. One day this thread will be encased in digital lucite and added to the Smithsonian.
Shit. I think I accidentally deleted it. I was cleaning up the thread, deleting all my drupal-related drivel. I think he must've "replied" to one of those (vs. just use the comment box)...and it deleted it. Gah. Double gah. You got it sitting in your browser cache anywhere? I can put it back in that way, but no way to undo the delete.
Hi, I'm Brett. [Actually Ard writing as Brett, 'cause Ard is a total fucktard and deleted his post somehow.] Anyway, basically I'm just here to say that this thread is totally awesome, I read the whole damn thing and it was the best 25 minutes of my internet life. uhmmm, etc, etc. Basically I'm a super rad individual who posted his appreciation of this thread, therefore inspiring Ard to get off his fat ass and hand out some more rulings!
Soccer4kyle be trollin’. Or he’s delirious. “CRAZY NEW SPORT OF Trampoline Bounce Boarding”? Any dunce can tell you that snowboarders have been strapping on boards and hopping on trampolines for decades – but they have perspective enough not to claim it as CRAZY, NEW, or a SPORT. It’s training, pure and simple. Now take that shitty 540°-misty-flip-nose-grab you learned in the gym and huck it off a 50 foot cliff. Then we can talk tricks OK. Next.
[Skatecycle also properly addressed by Kiell earlier in the thread.]
Just when you thought the Tron series couldn’t get any gayer…
I’m slacklining at the beach the other day, a family walks by and the kid says “Daddy, is that hard?” A perfect summary of the unimpressiveness of slacklining. If you have to ask, it aint shit.
Slacklining to keep your skills up for highlining is one thing, but these tricks guys are on an entirely wrong path. You do realize you’re publicly sacking yourself (over and over again) and calling it a trick right? Maybe I’m living in an alternate universe, but last I checked that shit aint cool. I’m officially renaming this sport Bouncy Babies For Eunuchs.
Here’s another one that’s a solid Tricks OK, until Whitey McHopHead gets down with it. God I want to be black so badly. You can’t fail. If blacks got together tomorrow and decided lawn darts were cool, shit’d be sold out by the weekend. Only blackness could have saved aggressive inline from its fiery demise.
Here we have roller skating – a pastime held warmly in our hearts from its association with 50s drive-in girls, and somewhat for roller derby girls. In the 80s, white dudes tried to fuck it up by using roller skates on vert ramps, but thankfully nobody remembers this. Not even Google. You’ll have to trust me on this one. [Pro snowboarder Shaun Palmer was at the forefront of the scene, I shit you not.]
Roller rinks were popular during the disco era, but when disco died whitey moved on. Blacks took it underground though, enjoying an expressive and stylish scene devoid of the rhythmically challenged. The result is J.B. roller skating. And what a majestic bird it is.
Sadly, I can’t find any recent info on this activity. I suspect that once news of its existence was leaked onto the internet, us white boys tried to get in on the action and, well, you know the story.
Awesome, this video makes me want to go outside and train...even though it is raining...yeahhh...
I finally caught up on this thread though
You'll get no argument from me. I gave up on flatland because it was too hard, and back then we used locking brake levers. This shit is levels beyond. Was this one of the films you were involved with?
Finally, something controversial. I was beginning to think this thread lost its way. Cool vid. Blading is still shit though. Fundamental flaw with blading: the thought, "damn that'd look cool on a skateboard."
Oh my god Kiell. You just made my day. That flyboard video is perfect. This is the crowning achievement of man. From sperm, to man, to sperm. The cycle is complete.
This sorta belongs in the YouTube thread, and it sorta belongs here, and the music is totally gay. But hey - I bet there are at least a few things in here you haven't seen before.
mmm...underwater skateboarding: tricks ok.
Whoa - ice climbing and snowboarding? That's insane. Here's something a little...different?
