serious question to those way deeper in skating:

is there a definitive video part (assuming VHS) where the ubiquitous crouched down fisheye follow cam footage was used on a sequence?  Between that and the stationary fisheye quick pan you've got two quintessential but unique video styles that pretty much doesn't exist in any other discipline that I can think of.  I imagine when that first came out it was (before my limited time involved in skating) quite revolutionary.  Interested from a historic and learning perspective.  I mean I can remember exact snow and surf video parts from whenever or certain hits and lines or backside airs (Ingemar when it happened) but certainly do not have the same knowledge of skating.

I can't think of a definitive part per se. There are videos that in my mind are part of the 'multiple trick line era' and pretty much everything was fisheye because that was the best way to get the whole person in the shot, fill the fram, and it also made tricks look bigger and more dynamic.

Some of the videos that I think of when I think of multi-trick runs are like Madcircle - Let the Horns Blow and Girl - Mouse / Goldfish. You can clearly see the fisheye in these, I think often times just held over the lens.

Randomly ended up going to the park with some friends last night with about 45 minutes to kill before I had to leave, no board, so I filmed. Essentially “warm-ups and then some.”

No excuse for not having a board at a skatepark!

My stuff is at home, I was hiking with my girlfriend and dogs before I stopped at his house

I honestly have no motivation to skate anymore, just having fun filming these days..

Nothing to excuse, I just didn’t have my board, and not as into skating. Snowboarding took over years ago. I put in an okay 26 years of skating though 😜

Yeah man, just fucking around. Seriously though, it's really cool that there are people who are more into the capturing side of it all. I was never part of a crew where there was a "filmer dude", so never really filmed that much. All too busy skating and most of my closest buddies even stopped doing that. That's my sad mindset where that "another one lost" thing came from, hahaa. Breaks my heart, but not really in your case as you're a full on dude! I'm still skating, but still think about snow more than I think about skating in the winter.

I have always had a thing for creating content behind the camera, ever since the first cam we had in the family when I was little.

I want to get back into skating regularly, just have to force myself to start going, and it will follow on its own. Part of what’s hard is that when you slow down a lot, even when you still have your basics, it becomes harder to do what you were once good at, takes longer to warm up, etc.  I’ll typically skate around for a little bit and feel like I’m going nowhere, even if it’s fun, so it fizzles out quickly. These days I am a much bigger fan of my cruiser board on the street, grinding curbs and ollie everything as it comes my way. Sort of like snowboarding a line. The hard part is all of my friends these days have pretty normal job schedules, I never got into that, so timing doesn’t work out nearly as often.

I still end up skating a fair amount when I film street stuff,  but I only seem to do that a few times each summer.

Yeah sounds like something I can relate to. Yesterday took about an hour to warm up, first day indoor. It's annoying when you can't do things you used to even after a thorough focused session.. Last season I learned nollie back noseblunts, which I was super psyched about and now I can't seem to pop and have my weight over the nose and ledge correctly, even though I could do them pretty consistently before winter season. Sometimes I put in the time but just end up quitting and go skate the flat.

I also run my cruiser when I go to work and it's dry. It's fun emulating snowboard turns and use your body more, like going over the rails, knees bent and hoping your wheels are grippy enough, hah.

Fucking video of the century! Can't remember the last time I felt so giddy. Tiago, Marshall, Spencer throwing down the sickest shit while the soundtrack, group stoke and that hang ten guy with a french name bring together the perfect blend of tongue in cheek flavor with A-grade ripping. 6/5, would bang.
