    Thanks for posting that!
    Wow – unbelievable. The stuff he’s doing at around 4 mins!!!
    Wonderful. Bob is a bit of a hero of mine.

    Thanks again!

    I do miss the X Games since I stopped having Extreme channel.

    [edit]Best watched in HD, large!

    Cant see the Utube link but watched dreamland last night if thats what youre on about. Ollie to fakie best thing he does but the helichopper boardslide is something I’d never thought of myself 😯

    No worries Dez..

    Its all fairly nuts… I personally like from 2:14 to 3:00 that front side flip over the gap-hip is mental. and the grab-less backside flip over the whole lot, and he squeezes a sweet misty in… Helicopter nose stall made me wince. He is a hero.

    This is very impressive.

    I sent this in to midweek minimovies earlier (as well as sharing it with as many people as I could think of).

    I’m not a skateboarder, but even I could see the sheer skill on show.

    The last bit made my hands and feet go very funny though – you’d have to trust your grip wouldn’t you!?
    (they’ve gone again just thinking about it)

    The switch nosegrind over the rail/hip thing at 5mins 😯

    Even though he was probably the first really ambi skater on vert, that really takes the biscuit

    Too amazing to comprehend! 😯

    A few impressive things in a 3 min edit is all well and good but 8 minutes solid of banger after banger is just nuts!

    Pretty sure there’s a switch ,backside ,heel flip ,5 (no grab!) in there 😯
    Actually its just 8 minutes of bangers!!

    Love this. Bob’s a legend. Amazing to think what a household name/brand Tony Hawk is when he’s not even close to this level.

    Bob vs a 13 year old kid!

    Heli flying was the most impressive bit, I’d say!

    Wow.

    Very, very happy to pay over the odds for plastic sunnies so that Mr B. can do this for a living. Art. Boundaries.

    Well done everyone involved.

    Insane stuff! Sent me on a trip down memory lane, shocked to see that my old favourite rider DMC is still going age 46! 😯

    Amazing to think what a household name/brand Tony Hawk is when he’s not even close to this level.

    That’s a bit unfair, its called progression. Tony Alva, Lance Mountain, Tony Hawk my fave Kevin Staab they have all progressed the sport, no one had conceived of the mega ramp back then. Its only a really successful vid game that made Hawk a household name.

    Danny Way was the first mega ramp guru with out him and the X games marketing we wouldn’t have Bob blowing minds.

    schrickvr6 – yes, I’ve been following Dennis McCoy too. Ever since that channel 4 programme (High 5) about him and Condor in the early 90s.
