Downhill Skateboarder Head On Impact With Car – Close Call

by

Two longboarders in Mexico collide, with one sliding head first into an oncoming car.

He got up and skated away. Mexico is cool for one thing though, if this video is anything to go by – if this had happened on say Mount Cootha or Burringbar, everyone and everything from the driver through to Tracy Grimshaw would have been going batshit crazy and blowing up. All we can say is stay safe out there and try to avoid situations like this one. Always wear a certified helmet. We don’t endorse this behavior – you shouldn’t attempt this, ever.

Damo & Darren In The Skatepark – 2nd Ciggy Butt Brain Video Released

by

Michael Cusack’s long-awaited sequel to the infamous ‘Ciggy Butt Brain’ video with Damo and Darren is here – skateboarding in Australia fully defined in one powerful presentation. Forget waiting for a mate or nek miniting your way thought the thick soup of strange southern hemisphere looseness, and take a look at this episode where we hit the local skate park on a Sunday with the lads as they take in the ambience of the scene before them.

If this isn’t an perfect representation of outer-suburb living in Australia and the common struggles between weed heads, alcoholics, housos, dole bludgers, kids and skateboarders, then what is? The quotes from these videos are far too numerous and just plain bloody perfect to list, so just watch. WE still think the first one holds on to the title though, one of the funniest things ever created depicting the backwaters of Australia’s social currency and modern ‘burban culture.

Language Warning // This is typical west-of-the-M1-type-dialogue haha

And for those that missed part one, here it is – a typical day at an average Australian train station.

2014 Slam Of The Year Contender – Spine Crunching Skate Slam

by

You can feel his spine crunching – get ready to cringe as skater Shorty takes a tailbone disintegrating drop from a pool slide into an empty concrete bowl. How much thought really went in to this? You decide, but this has to be one of the worst spine tingling skate impacts ever filmed.
