John's Vid

Such a good video. Jonny Wilson stuff is always dope, love the soundtracks too. Seems like all the skaters featured are putting out some of their best stuff yet, like the best part of their different strengths has gone turbo in this clip!

Cyrus = power and insane levels of good.

Middle part lacked something for me.

Stain = great ender and the skater I’m probably jealous of the most. Everything stylish and everything done proper!

Fucking hell, that was incredible.

Spots, speed, soul.

California looks so boring on video.

Who’s the leather jacket/bar tender dude?
He always has cameos in Wilson’s clip.
Mosher power

He’s called John Francomacaro I think! So good to watch. Does some good stuff in the second 917 video.

Just finished watching too.
I’m gonna say it, if you’re gonna do the “modern” filming thing that I can’t shut up about, then that’s how you fucking do it! Was a few shite clips but must have been other filmers. Every trick caught, no rushing to get the trick, plenty of run in, run out, face, aftermath, None of this just film the feet because they can’t zoom out quick enough from their facial. Props that dude!
Skating wise, fuck yes!, all the main dudes on this did ace stuff, quirky but legit, powerful and fast. Loved it. I really love Max’s barely legit tiny grind/slides.

He pops up in Spirit Quest alongside Daniel Kim, I think - maybe a Stingwater connection(?)

Agree the filming was very good. He has a knack for capturing the skater moving from one side of the frame to the other, which works really nicely with HD fisheye and the wider aspect ratio.

Did Max palmer break his leg?! Looked gnarly.

I think that’s a gash but I only saw what you saw.

Always get so stoked on Cyrus Bennett footage. Some of the manuals in this thing are wild!

This sick photo of that Franco from A Brief Glance, it’s a bad quality screengrab but sick switch roll in

Before his part started I was suddenlt reminded of Nik Stain’s recent output and thought he’d be s good SOTY candidate.
Was he even listed?

Surely Cyrus Bennett should be on that list but who cares too

Er…? He’s pretty easy on the eyes but hardly pushes skateboarding like Hawk, Carroll, Reynolds, Arto or Ishod did. Cool outfits and long manuals are a thing but Mason and Knox probably do more interesting, creative and/or gnarly stuff in a week than he did this year.

Cyrus has ascended to Godhead status. Fucking wild. His flick is just incredible.
Max is a wizard.
Not sure how anyone could think Nik Stain isn’t gnarly? Yes, he stays close to the ground but hitting anything at all at the speed he goes would be terrifying.

NYC guy who works for Nike SB. He films their guys there and makes unbranded Nike SB videos which are usually really sick and the antithesis of the California branded SB videos.

Johns video is siiiiiick. Cyrus and Palmer are rad. Nik, too…And Andrew. Wait…I just liked everyone.
Video is cool…Just feel like it has feeling.

Apologies.

This is it isn’t it. The thing that you want from a video but you just can’t fake.
