#709: i especially like the flip of the board












"Other people had skated handrails before, but I guess the ones I did were longer. I don't know. That's what everyone talks about anyway."

I know his Questionable part is famous for all the rail tricks but my favorite shot in that is floated bs 180 up the 3 and switch 360 down.

Never knew that that other tricks were done on the double kink handrail than Pat's FS 50/50 and Danny Way's boardslide. Always thougt that the Lipslide attempts that were in the slam section were pretty crazy, especially for the time. Does anyone know if that rail is still skateable?

The kink rail is actually skate stopped now. But in recent years someone actually 5050'd over the stoppers. Maybe I'm wrong, but I want to say it was figgy?

That Questionable part is seriously in the top 5 most relevant parts in any skate video ever.

Pat killed it regardless. If anybody tried now it would not mean as much. He is an artist like the Gonz. Im new school to you guys but I saw Questionable for the first time in 2004 and I am still blown away. I bet with my heart Cardiel fed off of Duffy. I was a kid at shadys in pittsburgh skipping school to see alien cats and taylor sucking til they smoked blunts so sad black flag faded away then....

Everytime I see a sick shot of a killer epic skaterat, somehow Cards exist. his footage of the 540 at max's ramp is so inspirational. I live in pittsburgh and that drive makes so much sense. Chops thanks so much I bet we ollied together just don't remember you. . . I am a Beaver county rat and still bomb hills i pray julien would give me knucks>>>>

Still ripping and never let injuries stop him. I always remember the shot of him and D.way draining each others knees. Mad inspiration.

That back 50-50 kinker was in the first skate mag I ever got - great post.

Keith said...

never seen that pop quiz before... or maybe I have and just don't remember.

I never knew he bs 50-50ed that long ass kinked rail either.

Super sick. What a crazy opener to Questionable... some dude who nobody up here knew about just blew everyone away. That whole video changed the game and set the bar super high.

I saw Duffy and Sal Barbier annihilate the tall, steep vert wall at Shady Skates in the 90s. Dude flew up into a backside tail on the top of the thing and Sal busted a rock shuffle to fakie! Plan B and Think were probably the gnarliest demos I ever saw there, but I heard Toy Machine killed it too.

It's time to skate. Putting Primus in my Ipod right now. Call Purcell please!

Killing it lately homie. Hope all is well.

When I was a kid I jerked off to that chicks ass
at the begining of his virtual reality part.

Tyrone Olson 50ed the rail in "The Storm". As for the kfbnbrevert, holy moses

Duffy was actually super tech too and didn't get credit. He was doing big flip backside tailslides in virtual reality. Questionable changed skating. First video I hand watched and actually said " damn I fucking suck I should just quit "

Hokus Pokus
Video Days
Questionable

most influential skate videos ever

Easily one of my favourite skaters. I remember seeing Plan B's "Questionable" at a friend's house and I was well and truly blown away! It was all we could talk about for months after, and of course, hugely influential at that time. I think his "Virtual Reality" part is equally amazing, years ahead of his time.

Does anyone know where the kinked rail is? Name of the school maybe?
