The Olympics will never capture this

Quite simply the best thing in skateboarding. Dangerous, impolite, probably illegal. Just taking over the streets. Nothing like it....

Haha-- just posted the same vid on the SOTY thread before reading this one. Agreed 100%-- Olympics gonna find a way to make skating corny as hell. This is that pure, uncut anarchy-- Rolling Thunder. I bet none of these dudes have "athlete" in their IG profile.

God damn... when was the last time a skate vid made you tremble with stoke and fear?

Skate content is so now over-saturated but this is a rare gem of authenticity.

Someone will die. But it will be a beautiful death.

I thank them for saving skateboarding and also living out what we all dreamed was possible as kids. They're f*cking doing it the way it should be done.

Well, 5 months later, one of the GX1000 is facing potential prison time and another just died skateboarding...

The candle that burns twice as bright and all that...

Backsmith to hillbomb, casual hands by the side through the speed wobble while cocteau twins wail. Backing it.
