We always wanted to be skateboarders, jumping up curbs, down the stairs and filp our boards as many times as we could.

A thing of beauty, eh? Skate footy quality has come a long way since the Animal Chin days. The shots here are great, it's satisfying larger structure is lacking IMO, but as this was essentially a Red test and was shot really quickly, that makes sense.

Really liked it - although I was a bit afraid that the music would suddenly "drop" during the first two minutes.

That first rail grind shot was pretty cool.

Awesome video, loving when skate movies are made in pure hd, looks so epic.

Love me some slow-mo skateboarding. I would totally land better tricks if only I could move this slow!

That was a very young Tony Hawk.

Blog idea: People who are bad at sports look awesome at said sport if filmed in slow motion. It probably works.

(These people are actually good at skateboarding and the video is beautiful.)

I want to go home and watch Gleaming The Cube now.

I'd love to see some early '90s Rodney Mullen filmed that way with the Red Epic...

I have nothing significant to say, but I would like to thank you for the post!

Cool video. Good skating and very nicely filmed and edited!

I love it that no-complys, nosegrabs, and truck taps are coming back in modern skating.

Watched the first minute and a half, and stopped watching because I want to watch this on the big TV at home instead. :)

Capital awesome. Love the straight on shot of the feeble grind at 1.21, you can literally see the truck being ground down.
