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.

Welcome to Hell.

Or if we're talking written word, maybe Phelper's recent ode to SF

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...
