It’s often too easy whilst watching a skate video to give all your attention to the skater, trick and the spot, neglecting the filming job somebody’s doing. More often than not, if you don’t notice the filming it probably means it’s been captured beautifully!
We thought we’d give some props to many of the folk behind the lens, a lot of the time not acknowledged; I mean when you’re watching a ridiculous downhill line showing the subject blitzing it a million miles an hour, you can forget that the filmer is going just as fast, avoiding cracks and vehicles whilst holding a super expensive piece of equipment.
This is an ode to some of the gnarliest filming we could find on the internet. Of course we will miss some so please comment ones you think should be included so we can add them in!
