Filmed entirely on a mobile phone camera, Crazy Wisdom [youtube, ~12min] is the latest video part from all-rounder Andy Anderson [wikipedia] featuring a mixture of vert, street, freestyle, and cartoon-logic physics-defying stunts. Darkslides, giant kink rails, huge ramps, stationary rail combos, whatever kind of skating you enjoy, there'll be something in here for you. (Previous Andy Anderson FPPs.)

railstand in motion: railrode? shreds, thx

(A sliding railstand is a primo slide - named for its inventor Primo Desiderio - or, if you're on just the edge of the wheels with the deck just off the ground, it's a coconut wheelie, invented by Pierre Andre. Both are freestyle tricks from the 80s!)

This just makes me more eager to play the Skate 4 game "skate." whenever it's done. Recent dev updates shows the game is coming together. They've been doing a lot of updates over the last couple of years including public playtests. They're investing enough it could be truly great but then it's also going to be free-to-play from EA. ingers crossed, the studios have learned to dial back the worst microtransaction excesses.

Some really great music in this. I super-duper dug “Leaving” by tripmastermonk.

The most genius skating I’ve seen since Rodney Mullen. The next level of skate creativity and physical ability.

Genuinely impressed! My little brother, rest his soul, was pretty handy with a skateboard. He would’ve loved to see this. Thanks for sharing. :)

Besides the obvious stuff like the darkslide on the snake rail that’s a sneaky cool/impressive trick at 3:58.

That's some very cool shit.

(also, anyone have an ID on the craaazy offensive yellow shoes he's wearing at about 8:40? WANT.)

Pretty sure the shoes are the Etnies Andy Anderson Pro, though I don't think they're available in a yellow at the moment?

Same! I was already on their bandcamp before coming back here because I got to get more of that.
