Without Danny Way there would be no Berrics. Without Danny Way there would't be a lot of things. Danny was a giant killer who would later become a giant. At 14 years old he made 20 year old pro skaters look like senior citizen rollerbladers. He has always been light years ahead of his time in terms of trick progression and that thing that makes him Danny Way, his style and power on a skateboard. He has influenced every single one of the people who influence you and if they disagreed with that, they'd be lying. He was my childhood idol and he's a year younger than me. Waiting for Lightning tells the story of one of the greatest friends skateboarding has ever seen and ever will. It screens tonight in Hollywood and we are giving away tickets. If you're lucky enough to win, I will see you there. -- sb
Trickipedia is not a Trick Tips section, but that doesn't mean you're not going to learn. Trickipedia is the general education page for skateboarding tricks started by the Berrics so that future generations understand the difference between frontside and backside and that there is no such thing as switch nollie half cabs. Each week one of Skateboarding's best will help fill Trickipedia's pages until it is the most comprehensive reference work on the planet. This week Trevor Colden revisits backside smith grinds - this time in HD. Check out the original version handled by Mike Barker back on October 28th, 2008. If you have any suggestions of who you would like to see do certain tricks in the future feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
