    Incredible. That section was so good, the backside Smith grind revert at 2:57 is the best thing ever.



    His Goldfish section is definitely one of my all time favourites, watched it thousands of times as a kid.

    This was a bit good too:

    Agreed.

    Fourstar demo with some pretty good footage of MC.
    That backlip at 3:02 is well sexy.

    The japan air at the end. BLOODY HELL.

    Slightly off topic; still find it hard to care about Sean Malto.

    Malto won that demo for sure.

    Effortless smooth tech skating is boring. You're right.

    Think something in the footage thread linked through to his ccs(?) q&a the other day. Not sure I had heard why Lakai was called Lakai before, or that reason anyway.

    When he couldn't be arsed to talked to people bothering him (non-skaters, pub situation I think), he'd say his name was malakai... Which he then shortened to Lakai. So basically named after a daft name he gave himself.

    I'm guessing ABP ... lost clip of Mike Carroll at the Brooklyn Banks in 1995.
