The Sound of Skateboarding

(PG-13: Language) Skateboarders Tony Hawk, David Loy, and Keire Johnson spent a little time in the studio and on their boards, helping to record more than 650 different sounds that skateboards (and skateboarders) make. Then, the creative minds of Bonamaze set to chopping up the audio into rhythmic music track.

Automatic Kickflip Skateboard

Automatic Kickflip Skateboard

Crazy inventions seem to be flying fast and furious from The Hacksmith’s shop. This build was inspired by the remastered Tony Hawk Pro Skater games. Designed to save skateboarders the trouble of doing their own kickflips, this RC electric board does the trick automatically. Along the way, they built a better mousetrap.

One of the most iconic locations in Tony Hawk Pro Skater is the warehouse. We’ve played the level many times ourselves. Now watch the game’s namesake take on a real-world replica of the warehouse, as the 52-year-old skateboarder continues to prove that age is no barrier to his innate talent. The BTS video is worth a watch too.

Skateboarders Thaynan Costa, Josef Skott, Adilson Pedro, and Madars Apse head to the aisles of a grocery store for a wild ride between the well-stocked shelves.

Taddy Goes Snowskating

Taddy Goes Snowskating

We’ve featured of skateboarding, snowboarding, and even a few cat videos over the years. But this is the first time we can recall seeing a video that combines all three. Smagical’s kitty Taddy loves to take a ride in the snow, and he’s got just the music video to go with his extreme winter sports.

Marty

Marty

Filmmaker Mike McKinlay’s documentary short film follows the story of Marty, an 11-year-old kid who’s obsessed with skateboarding and ’70s and ’80s punk rock. The film does a great job capturing the spirit of something we all craved as kids, our own unique identities. Though a real ’80s skate punk wouldn’t wear a helmet.

Perception Is an Illusion

Red Bull Skateboarding presents a short clip which combines athleticism with visual trickery to play with our perceptions.

70 mph Downhill Skateboarding

70 mph Downhill Skateboarding

Riding a skateboard downhill can be a thrill – at least until you have to stop. Now imagine bombing down a mountain road at speeds faster than cars take the same path. That’s exactly what boarder Josh Neuman did down one of Switzerland’s most epic driving roads. Bonus points for cameraman @jake_from_skatefarm.

High ‘N Dry
