This is the Official Yes I am old but I saw Eddie Van Halen on stage shirt moreover I will buy this most direct expression of stancelesseness. Chris Haslam was the first to create a compound movement with his front foot to make his board jump into him, allowing a control that made it a signature trick—mostly backwards, as ‘switch lasers.’ When I understood the complexity of what he was doing, I realized a new generation had emerged with skill sets that are not in my reach. I figured the most difficult thing I could do would be to develop that skill set in the other (wrong) stance. Mechanically, this is a fakie laser, but visually, it has nothing to do with fakie. It is a switch trick that could not be done switch, and proof that a stance can be broken.” “You have to throw yourself out of balance in order to regain it, in order to generate the torque to do this trick. In this case, the board turns 540 degrees, from a near standstill. Since there’s no room to stop in the dome, I couldn’t afford to land squarely; it was a matter of jumping to the inside (watch back foot), just enough to curl it behind the rail, then un-weight enough to allow a slight slide, which halted me enough to stay standing yet not plow into the cameras. I went back to footage as old as 27 years ago, and I do not see it. I don’t think I’ve ever done it on camera, nor do I recall anyone else ever doing it, certainly not with a modern board.” “I was so sure I was going to damage the dome that I held this for the very last night. This trick is accessible to others not exotic or new which is part of its strength. There are skaters who can do hard tricks, but within that top tier, skaters who have a flow from within are often considered the best, as long as their tricks are good enough. This speaks to how much the community values individual expression over metrics of prowess, such a trickiness or power. I’d be hard-pressed to give examples of my own skating that show an inner flow’s outward expression more than the simple recovery of this trick.” “Another example of having to throw yourself out of balance, whilst spinning, in order to regain it, in order to generate the torque to do the trick. In that black dome with the shadows, your instincts to slide it into control are almost too hard to fight. (I had to come back to this trick three times for that reason alone.

Because breaking my stance allowed me to center with greater poise, I could generate the Official Yes I am old but I saw Eddie Van Halen on stage shirt moreover I will buy this torque without pitching my upper body forward to some extent, you have to stand fakie because of it, like a garden-variety fakie 360 kick-flip which allowed me to stay behind the board once the final 360 casper-flip spun, eventuating in the full spin, so that I could keep the overall rotary motion and pivot backwards, instead of pitching forward to a dead stop.” “This trick has never been seen or done, as far as I know. It is rooted in an obscure freestyle trick dating back 30 years. However, it was only done landing on all four wheels. This rail-to-rail version requires another level of power and control. On top of that, to do it on a modern (bigger) board, and landing on axles, is so daunting that I had never done it until now. It was particularly inspired by the camera action, because of how beautiful it would look: a rotary motion in a rotary system.” “This is a 30-plus-year-old trick from my freestyle days. It is doubtful if it has ever been filmed, as I don’t recall others doing it, certainly not with a modern setup.” Having embraced social media, the #DogsOfInstagram are a breed part, but even within this tech-friendly pack, there are elites. Today, we’d like to introduce you to five of them Sir Ernest Bunnybottom, Schnitzel von Krumm, Odin, Sky, and Eric Spock Maclean who disprove the age-old adage that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. These are skateboarding dogs. Not dogs that pose with decks, but four-legged athletes shredding on four wheels, for real. All of them will skate for cookies. Not only do these pets have the ability to kick, push, and balance, but big and small, male and female all of these cruisin’ canines bring style to their game. Sky will have you rethinking the neck-tied scarf and your fitness goals; Odin, a pit bull red heeler mix, has recently been working some totally trending Thrasher gear, while Schnitzel von Krumm, a dachshund, prefers a double-C logo. This crew is barking rad. Model Aweng Ade-Chuol and nail-artist entrepreneur Alexus Ade-Chuol’s first encounter was completely by chance, at a business meeting. “I knew of her, of course. I had even messaged her a few years prior to tell her how beautiful she was,” Alexus says.
