chrome ball incident #650: kites are fun












"Remy Stratton was a chrome ball." -Dill*

Hard to believe that I was so busy staring at flicks of noseslides back in the day that I never realized how amazing this dude was. Each one of these photos is perfect.

And a frontside ollie so nice that I included it twice.

Big up to Justin over at Vert is Dead.

Be smart... don't start.

I used to watch his part in the G&S Footage video over and over. It was such a perfect part. His skating, the music...beautiful. And yeah, those perfect frontside ollies. I wonder if a kid today could watch his part and pick up on the subtleties of how good skating like that can look/be.

The fabled seatbelt!

NONE COULD MATCH HIS F/S OLLIES TO 5.0 BASH ABOUT 6-7 FEET OUT!!!

I appreciate this dude's skating more in hindsight, but the seatbelt will never look good.

And yeah, I spent hours looking at noseslide photos. Transworld even ran sequences of dudes doing them.
