If you duct tape a camera to the front of a skateboard, and have a hotshot (Hey, Chad) make a run through a serpentine, it’ll be a cool video, yeah?
Sounded perfectly reasonable to me.
Anyhow, the camera bobbles around and points down more than you’d like, and what you get is what your shoe sees while you skate.
That’s the trouble with a lot of skate videos. They don’t communicate the absolute FUN of what you’re doing. Most of them show you action shots of guys doing aerial moves that are amazing and all, but they don’t give you the feeling of BEING there. Neither does putting the camera on the front of the board, but it’s fun to try!
