    What is the background music??? It’s sounds great!!

  • Xallxsewnxupx

    super sick. what is the song? 

  • 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.

    Sooo good. Been watching this a couple times a week for the past two months.

    the song is:

  • Jesse Weinberg

    So Fresh!

  • TOASTRANDER

    So well done!

  • 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!

    • eke

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