Skateboard wizardry at its finest!  Thanks to filmer Adam Shomsky and a bunch of very talented riders, flatground tricks have never looked so good.  Its a good thing this was filmed in 1000 fps slow motion video, because if it wasn’t I would have no idea what the hell was going on.  These incredible and very uncommon tricks are super slowed down so one can dissect each trick and see what’s actually going down.  At the end of the video, all the tricks are shown in real time to give a true perspective on what these amazing skaters are doing.  Such a cool and innovative way to shoot these next-level flatground manuevers.  Check it! 



“Uncommon skateboarding tricks in super slow motion. Filmed at 1,000 frames per second with a Redlake N3 high speed camera. Since skateboarding trick names are defined by common usage and these tricks are not very common, some of them don’t have well-established names. So here are my best guesses as to what they should be called:

Kyle McPherson — nollie dolphin flip (AKA nollie forward flip)
Cameron Carmichael — backside 180 casper flip (?) (or bs 180 hospital flip)
Jerrod Skorupski — nollie heelflip bs body varial
David Case – nollie 360 shuv underflip (AKA nerd flip)
David Case – frontside shuv underflip (AKA kiwi flip)
Dustin Blauvelt – hardflip pretzel
Dustin Blauvelt – Merlin twist (switch front foot impossible fs 180)
Dustin Blauvelt – nollie heelflip indy grab
Shane Anderson – early grab frontside 180 fingerflip (?)
Jovan Pierson – pressure hardflip (?)
Jovan Pierson – ?? I don’t know what this is, I just call it a Jovan flip
Erick Schaefer – backside pop shuv underflip
Tim Hamp – Nollie pressure hardflip (?)

Thanks to Funky Notes for the music. This song is called Never Knew.”
