You know how they say, "behind every great man is a great woman"? Something similar can be said about skateboarders only it would go something like this: behind every great skateboarder is a great photographer and/or Filmer. If a trick were to happen and no one were there to photograph or film it in order for you to see it, did it really happen? You ever heard that other cliche, "I'll believe it when I see it"? I think a skateboarder made that up. Think about everything you've seen and were inspired by in skateboarding and I'll bet you most of it has been through the invention of photography or filmmaking. Throughout the evolution of skateboarding there has always been the photographer and/or filmer right there by the skateboarders side ensuring that whatever happened it would be documented for the world to see. This segment is as simple as it sounds. Shoot All Skaters with Jacob Rosenberg part 2. Enjoy. -- 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 Torey Pudwill revisits backside tailslides - this time in HD. Check out the original version handled by Eric Koston back on February 10, 2009. 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.
