    I longboard myself, and I’ve seen loads of vids of boarding of all sort…but never in my world could I imagine anything like this! The easiness in his movements, and the 0% failure is so intense.. Not to talk about the movie itself, that was just super.

    anyone noticed he changed his shirt two times? :) I wish he didn’t tough, but that is pretty much the only thing I do not find utterly amazing. really beautiful work, I like the song and the whole thing!

      yes, shirt-switching IMO spoils flow of movie, but this (skating) is gorgeous anyway
