Something in the water?


Recently I have found myself staring at a few pics in skate mags and thinking "how is that even possible?". After trying to find explanations through the use of fish eye lenses or new board technology, I am at a loss. Maybe skaters are just capable of more than we had previously thought?


This was one of the first ones that caught my eye... couldn't believe it when I learned it was a kickflip. Austyn Gillette




Then this guy added to the madness. Chris Pfanner





Even the old dudes are getting in on the action. Dill




Hard to find just one Brandon Westgate flick to focus on but this sequence caught my attention for not only the ollie up but the lengthy gap at the end. Every time I look at it I can't help but think "who would try to skate this?".




This is just disturbing. Aldrin Garcia



These guys just might be aliens.. Gilbert Crockett, Donovan Piscopo. 





Although this is a great photos, the video of Anthony Schultz's fence ollie really captures how gnarly this is. 



I think I've stared at this flick one more than the others...maybe too many times. You can kind of see a bump but in the background but it doesn't appear to be too big. I wonder if it's something you have to see in person. Collin Provost. 


I saw that Boil the Ocean had a similar post recently where they referred to "Power Skating" so I know I'm not the only one who noticed.  

It will be interesting to see where this goes.

More soon...
