Scott Palmer re-up: Lines
After last weeks coverage of the powerhouse skating of O.G. Hull ripper Mr Scott Palmer, here we see him stamping his skateboard into the floor via ten high-powered lines.
Stair line (0:06) Sumo Skateshop - Through the Eyes of the Ruby
A turbo kickflip, backside 180 down the first set and switch frontside 180 down the next in a line makes for a solid start to this post and a demonstration of why fast=good.
Stair line 2 (1:24) Sumo Skateshop - Through the Eyes of the Ruby (1998)
Another one down the same stair set as above, again at ridiculously high speed for maximum danger.
"I tried to be dope!" (1:32) Sumo Skateshop - Through the Eyes of the Ruby (1998)
This one should really be re-upped regularly.
Nollie Heel, frontside flip (0:41) WFTW
As the man himself said in a later Slam interview, "If it ever gets boring, take an extra push"; this line embodies that mentality.
London Bridge at speed (1:22) WFTW
Palmer approaches London Bridge stair set at mach ten going backwards for a switch frontside 180 down, after a back tail fakie on the lesser skated ledge.
No push switch crook line (1:56) First Broadcast
However you look at it, that's a lengthy switch crook for a no push line!
Hull tidal barrier (0:42) Lost and Found
This Hull spot is fairly gnarly and hard to skate; obviously Palmer approaches it in the gnarliest, hardest way.
High speed plaza line (1:22) Lost and found
A lesson in stomping your tricks via a feeble grind, bench ollie and backside flip down some long steps.
Gaining momentum (1:35) LAF
Another LAF banger, rapidly picking up speed and ending in a switch frontside 5-0 revert; the more speed he picks up, the more in control he seems.
Back 180, frontside half cab flip (2:00) LAF
Backside 180 over a cone in preparation for a snapped frontside half cab flip caught high and sent down some stairs.
Barcelona line (3:34) LAF
Palmer's frontside flips are scarily dialled, so it seemed appropriate to finish this post with one; in this case led into by the wildest possible switch frontside 180 steez into a bank at a classic Catalonian spot.
