An early contender for the best clip of 2008. Proof that everything is beautiful and graceful in slow motion.

It was a bit TOO much slow motion. It was good for the first couple minutes, and then it just ends up being a lot of the same.

Reminds me of the intro to Girl Skateboards` "Yeah Right!" video.
The kickflip down the 10 was my favorite.
The exploding Hubba was cool, too, but I felt like Cairo could have done something more impressive than a 50-50... Eh, maybe its harder to do bluntslides when there are explosions right next to you.

EXPLODING SKATEBOARDERS FTW!

Meh, but the music was annoying and the video was TOO slow. :-/

The reason the clips were dragged out/not "shruken down" to the action was to make it fit with the music.

The music was epic, and made the video. I think it would have been stupid if it was just a bunch of easy tricks around explosions, especially if set to metal. If I wanted to see that, I`d just rent Jackass.

That was amazing and beautiful and most of you who are hating on it are moronic philistines with the attention span of a goldfish. I`m sure you`ve probably never read a book by choice either...

song is "Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun" by M83. If you like this he has three albums of equally epic stuff

that was a great clip.... great location, great skaters, great time of day and lighting, amazing skaters... cool explosions. It seemed long but if you made yourself wait it seemed to calm me down.. in this HAVE IT NOW! society, this clip makes you relise the joy of skating and the power of explosions!

This is a very ssensational clip, credits to the artists.

I am sceptical at some of the reactions of the skaters though... are we sure that the explosions happened when they were doing tricks and not just added in later somehow?

Anyway, fantastic clip. has my vote.

I think the concept of aesthetics is dying, and these comments are proof. This was beautiful, and there was no point to it other than that. I think the reason many of you found it so boring is because you were waiting for something that didn`t exist. Our society has trained us to expect function and efficiency in everything. I liked the song too.

imlouder,

if that is "the stupidest thing" you`ve ever seen, then your a fing moron who never get`s out of the house kid. Try looking in the mirror then you will have seen something much uglier and dumber then that clip.

The great thing about slo-mo is how it can take a short clip about stupid sh*t, and turn it into a VERY LONG clip about stupid sh*t.

"Lakai, the shoes we skate.
I just bought Koston`s new shoes last week, and was tempted to get the video to go with it (I usually get Chris Cole`s Fallen shoes, but I wanted something new) And bytheby, Circa is so 5 years ago, get with the program, Jamie Thomas is cool, but give it a rest..."

Skating has no time period. We`re not in the fashion-obsessed popularity click, remember?

*inhale*
dude that was tight, i watched it all the way through. The music was sweet, the explosions were awesome, especially the first one, the last one, and the one were the dude fell and he was like right in it, what if he attempted the last one? lol jk.
*exhale*
I do think the last one was some how an illusion though, i immedaitly thought cardboard stairs, and it was the only one with fire so either they messed that explosion up and just went with it cuz it was cool or its specialfx editing.
i liked it alot.

"Those skateboards should clearly be recalled by the manafacturer. Stick to rollerskates, fellas! Less danger there (though I did lose a wheel once on a 1 in 12 gradient)."

So you think having wheels stuck on your feet is less dangerous than having a loose board which you can bail out away from?
Fruitboots suck.

Youz guyz is stupid. I thought that was the coolest $hit i`ve seen here in a while. Especially that last one. Mike Mo Capaldi was 1.6 seconds away from death by 12th degree burns.

I thought the timing of the explosions were off. They all should have occurred just a moment earlier.

I kinda liked it but i agree with some of you; the slow motion was too slow. i was waiting forever just to see what was so special about it, but since i`m impatient i didn`t watch the whole thing.

It was cool, but the last one looked a little faked. I mean he didnt even seemed worried that there was a huge plank infront of his board, ready to send him faceplanting.

that was wild...

and its not that it was too slow, its that it took too much time to get to the point, they show the skater pushing for 10 seconds before he does anything
