Riky Barnes #5.
I got the new Black Label and Tilt Mode videos yesterday. I'm happy that Bonus Round comes with an extra DVD that has the other two Tilt Mode videos on it. I somehow missed out on those when they came out. I haven't watched them yet, but I did watch God Save The Label last night. I thought the pros all had good parts. I skipped over most of the am parts because I was tired and didn't feel like watching somebody I hadn't really heard of.
After fast forwarding through a few parts, I had to wonder if I'm turning into more of a bitter old dude who doesn't want to see the young new whippersnappers. I decided I'm not. For the most part. I just like to give the new ams a chance to put some work in and see who sticks around a while. There's a lot of good skateboarding out there. It's sometimes best to not think about everything.
I did watch Vince Del Valle's part and thought he did a great job.
I also watched the stuff Billy Marks filmed at Steve and Eric's indoor playground the other day. I'm a fan of Billy and thought he had some cool tricks, like the nollie and then the nollie kickflip over the hubba. Must be nice to have access to a place like that.
