    Default 360 Carousel, never done before. NEW VIDEO 2013

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEN1ActpgQk

    Our latest clip.

    First ever (as far i know) 360 carousel. I think Marco Sassi is the first skater learned this trick

    Enjoy my asian hookers

    I loved the skating in this video, everything was so smoooooooth with some inventive lines going on.
    But please don't be that guy who names his videos 'THE NEXT RODNEY MULLEN OMFG AAAAAH'. Have your own style and identity, don't compare yourself to other skaters. And the weird section with the dancing girls in the middle just made me uncomfortable...

    ^ I believe it is all meant to be a joke aha, especially the title

    As freestylers we get called Rodney Mullen since day 1, because noobs don't have anything to compare us to so it's always about Rodney Mullen

    I need to learn 360 carousels now

    dig the sk8 hi's

    dind't like the music too much, didn't flow

    skating was super sick, i like the filming (better than bench selfies)

    good to see new mario footy

    innovating! some sick new tricks in there

    and yea, i kinda frowned at the mullen title, but i guess it's a joke. i wouldn't do it, personally

    i wanna see more, also, i want to see some cool fisheye clips, especially stationary clips. just get in there and make it look dope

    360 carousel was trippy mayne

    If it was a joke, I retract my statement ha. It's hard to pick up sarcasm through text :L But yeah, I get where you're coming from. Every single freestyle video I watch the top comment is always 'Woah is this Rodney Mullen's son?' or 'The next Rodney Mullen'. If people broadened their horizons a little it would be great.
    And I get that the part with the chicks was a joke, I didn't think it was serious, just it felt weird. The scream mask made it worse. But whutever, great vid in any case man, keep it up, because it was siiiiiiiick.

    As Mike said, of course the title is a joke
    its a sequel to the video of last year, new rodney mullen 2012 (big booty bitches).

    What's serious actually is me with the asian chicks and humping everything. This aint fake acting to make you laugh At freestyle events and everyone around calls me Porno Mario..... but well thats a long story There is also an interview and article on the newspaper from yesterday, and hilarious they actually they go more in detail about why they call me Porno Mario then the actual skating hahaha
    This also refelct my music choice ( i f.. love Steel Panther !!!!!)

    The editing was made to the flow of the chosen tracks, if you get a closer look to both parts in the vid. (momentum with Marcos spin, and banger trick when music starts etc).

    About lenght : worst thing you can make is a vid that lasts too long. Good varied hard tricks, and right lenght is the best to make a video enjoyable. Take Joe Flemkes vids , absolutely insane skater and love em.... but most vids i saw from him were just way too lenghty, making it unfortunately boring half way even if his skating is really top notch and sick.

    FIlming : last year bought new Camera and wide angle, something pretty decent for about 1,5 k bucks. I am trying to make the new skate vids more dynamic. its hard to make look interesting stationary stuff.... Low angle looking up, and moving around the skater, different skate spots etc. Yhea but you also need a partner that is able to film you properly.
    Its a shame that there really many great freestyle skaters with sick trick, but they film their stuff with a tripod in front of a garage. This make their vids still interesting to other freestyle skaters that know what they are actually doing, but non freestyle skater will enjoy such video much less.

    And one more thing, i really do not like how a lot of people is trying to emulate novaks filming style.... 5 tricks and 40 shots of sunsets, birds flying, slo mo leaves falling.
    Lately i saw way too many vids were 90% was about artistic filming, and maybe 10% actually real tricks in it.

    Word.

    My thought exactly.

    I do some artistic filming, but barely use any clips, so when I do, they're planned, on-point, and used sparingly.

    I do only artistic shots, maybe a skateboard in a puddle reflection, but it's gotta be slow mo

    Anyways, didnt mean to bash this video at all with my song suggestions, really enjoyed the edit

    This so much. If I wanted to watch a car commercial, I'd watch a fucking car commercial. Even Novak is trying to emulate Novak.

    I am glad to see that there is still progression after 30+ years of freestyle! Let's hope the possibilities never end!

    I wonder how long it will be until street skaters catch up : )

    Most are doing 30+ year old freestyle tricks and calling it "Modern".
