Kick Flips And Flaming Lips

Kooloco skateboarding video review

20 Nov Kick Flips And Flaming Lips

In the digital age. The media has the power to bring you much closer to the action than ever before. This is especially true when it comes to sports. Skateboarding in particular. Take for example this recent production by the skateboard connoisseurs at Thrasher Magazine.

Evan Smith‘s “Peace” Part is a visual rollercoaster ride than you don’t want to miss. Smith is an award-winning rider. Renowned for his street skating skills, who many are suggesting could become the 2018 skateboarder of the year.

Evidence of this claim can be witnessed in the feature below. Trick selection, style and video editing alone, which are far too many to mention, make watching this video worth your while. Then there’s that punk rock song Silver Trembling Hands by The Flaming Lips. Mixed with the signature sound effects the board makes when grinding or banging on the ground. All of which add flames to the video’s wow factor.

Although skateboarding has evolved a lot over the past few years, having the guts let alone being able to pull off this style of skating is still admired by many. Not only is this video an inspiration for anyone fond of board sports. It’s also a decent way to kick start your week.
