Tuka Piziniztee picks up where he left off yesterday and continues to dissect some of the more talked about moments of skateboarding video history in 2013.
What will he make of 2014? You better stay tuned I guess…
Bob Burnquist’s Backyard Progression – July 2013
So whilst the internet was still recovering from the inevitable disappointment that Benny and Brady’s ‘welcome to Palace’ clip turned out to be little more than a pisstake PWBC news report, Bob Burnquist quietly entered stage left and proceeded to baffle grey matter with an unannounced and f*cking mental 7 minute full part filled with mega-ramp lunacy filmed entirely on location at his personal Dreamland TF.
Whether mega-ramp antics are usually your chosen cup of tea or not, even seasoned forum lurkers were having a hard time not admitting that Bob’s latest offering was above and beyond Lex Nevel.
Most people wanted to know about the up and coming helicopter more than anything else – “pilot is off his head too” and “I hope the helicopter is on more than just a flow deal, needs to be hooked up properly” were two early forum sentiments, followed quickly by “Bit too extreme for me! Stunt-copters and base-jumping, no TA!”. As far removed from the general populations experience of skateboarding as this was, the grumbles were few and far between, though the obviously chipper pondering of “How long until someone dies?” was obviously only just around the corner.
“Can’t wait for X-games 2015: ‘And now for the Helicopter section!…’”
