    That Bobby DeKeyzer part was so good, will definitely be watching that part again.

    "There are people in skateboarding whose views and backgrounds differ from mine, but I appreciate that they’re a part of it because that’s what keeps skating so diverse and not just some homogenized bullshit. More opinions, more girls, more homosexuality, more global representation." Ryan Lay

    That video is really watchable. Good stuff.
    It just all ends so well, too.

    If I have to say anything...I just really think the K-Rod part should have been dropped. By far the weakest point. We had a group viewing of the video and everyone just laughed at his part. Even the French people with us.
    I'd have much rather have seen Remy, Marnold or Lintell in that slot.

    Pablo was also a bit much in places as he just came off as a charity shop Dylan Rieder. I'm sure he is lovely, but I am just not into it.
    Someone also said somewhere else that Sage looks way stronger as a montage dude. I kind of agree. I liked his shit, though. Not sure how he gets a pass on stinkbugs.

    But otherwise, fuck yes. Good shit. Mike Anderson, Lopez, Dela, Dekeyzer, both JJs...So fucking sick. The NYC crew and the Gnarly Dudes sections were also amazing.

    Anyone got a screen grab of a De Keyzer smile? There's gotta be one frame at least.

    Really enjoyed it but for some reason the first 20mins felt like the end of the end of the video vibe.

    Just watched it again - all the way through, which is a testament to how good this one is I suppose.

    One thing had been bugging me - I was sure that first Bobby DeKeyzer track was abd in a Shank Converse edit and the geek in me wouldn't let it lie.
    Eventually worked it out - it was used in that UK Braving the Cold edit back in 2015.

    Odd the use of the silver initial balloons for Jake Johnson, exactly like the Vase intro

    I'll give it a proper viewing tonight, but I managed to see the first five minutes over the weekend. That Sean Pablo guy is fucking shite. Absolute fucking garbage. Proper charity shop Dylan Rieder as LS said. He pops up in Strobeck edits and it annoys me so much how repetitive and predictable he is.

    Enjoyed this a lot, but...

    Etnies video had far better skating in it. As said, some sections in this felt a little flimsy. I reckon they may have rushed this a little. To me, Bobby de K had the only properly weighty section (2 songs, full of bangers). Felt Louie, Jake Johnson, Sage and a few others needed a few more bangerz to beef out their respective sections. I have a weird feeling that Converse might be cutting back their marketing budget and wanted this out ASAP. I know they've been working on it for a few years, but they let Nuge go and Ben K left. Maybe they're about to slim down the skate programme? I doubt Nike would want to waste money on two brands essentially competing over the same customers. This is pure speculation though.

    Sean P had the best song but too many of the same tricks. Conflicted. I think I actually quite like Sean P, begrudgingly.

    The Herrington-Zered-Eli section was very rad.

    Great geeking Anon. I'd completely forgotten about that edit entirely.

    I've now watched it from start to finish four times. I really love this video. However, CM you're right. Pablo is kinda shit. He needs to start expanding his bag of tricks. Video could have done without a full part from him and more footage of Sage.

    Yep, complete toilet. The opening line was a 360 flip and a wallie, it didn't get much better than that either.
