In this episode we give our very preliminary thoughts on the Freestyle World Roundup that happened this week in Vancouver. We discuss some Eastern European freestyler whose name we do not know but we all agree rips (or at least did rip in the late 1980s), we talk boards, high trucks, and lastly the boys give Bob some advice on learning M-80 Kickflips.
The video mentioned in this podcast – regarding the dude riding freestyle on an 1980s street board, can be found here: http://youtu.be/Fvaryy8eAYc
The great Ray Barbee, whom Bob mentions during the show, can be seen in classic part in Powell’s Ban This video, here: http://youtu.be/AKT0T_DJ80U
Tony filmed a bunch of M-80 variations as supplementary material for this episode. Very nice stuff! http://youtu.be/elykMLy4SRs
Thanks for listening.
In this episode, we hear about Matt’s adventures as a freestyle pro during demos in Texas (including tales of sexy girls attempting to wrestle a bull to the ground), discuss spinning 360s, Freestyle: Sport or Art?, and we have some laughs looking at old freestyle board graphics in Witter’s Museum. Please note: up until about 7:30 in the show, Matt’s microphone is a bit sketchy. Just turn it up. His story is worth hearing!
