Found my Madbeef VHS in storage a few weeks ago and watched it today. I totally forgot how awesome and terrible blading was back in the early 90s! Seeing all the handplant rail grinds and step-up frontsides made me remember how guilty I am of doing this, hahahah. Are these offenses a natural instinct for all bladers? Like, if a rail is too high but just too good to pass up, I'll do a little hop up (kinda like jumping a hurdle...lift the soul foot up a few inches and then spring off of my other foot) but I never actually step up. So, since there are all these rules in rolling now, does skating (such as the kind in Madbeef) not count? And does it not count if both feet don't leave the ground at the same exact time?
Falls...why don't videos really have fall sections anymore? Fester has one but I haven't really seen many others. Are rollerbladers too vain to display their awkward moments? Some of the worst falls I've seen were in old VHS movies.
