    Sorry about the mixed sound quality but it looks like a dance off between 2 break dancers and 2 skaters. This looks really cool to me.

    Doesn't look cool to me.

    Yea, for sure. I didn't like that particular one, the freestyle was boring to me, just a lot of mannies. They take skill, but as a spectator, I'd find the breakdancers more entertaining.

    Close to this idea, I like doing doubles with my friends. Let's say, we all do a train of slash grinds 4 feet apart from each other.

    I was hoping for some vert
    Above the lakes, above the vales,
    The mountains and the woods, the clouds, the seas,
    Beyond the sun, beyond the ether,
    Beyond the confines of the starry spheres,
    My soul, you move with ease

    Yeah they could've integrated some stuff off the transitions but that isn't what freestyle is about.

    I think the "free" part leaves some room for whacky ideas. Hang ten nose manny would be sick on the lower part of the quarter, start from the flatbottom, etc.

    One thing I would say, even though sometimes I really enjoy watching weird freestyle/street combination skaters, it often looks dumb to me, just really dumb. Some guys make it look magical, still.

    I hear ya. That's why I couldn't get into freestyle back in the day. Plus when you're 15 in small town America you might as well admit to being into ballet or figure skating.
