The dick wiggle board trick is awesome.

That was  way cooler than I expected it to be.

There were a whole bunch of tricks there that I'd never seen before.  Nice.

Oustanding!  The incorporation of the body was amazing, and, um, fresh.

Very creative stuff...nice of the Japanese to bring some good weirdness to skateboarding.

Huh, they seem to have combined Parkour with skateboarding. Interesting...

I love creative skateboarding. This guy's style reminds me of a good mix of Rodney Mullen, William Spencer, Mark Gonzalez, and Louie Barletta. Love it when skaters have fun with it.

I watched the whole thing and I don't regret it. A lot of those tricks were new to me.

So the skate world is ready to embrace Dan Gesmer after 40 years wandering the wilderness?

At first I was like, "is this a SNL skit"  then I was like "Oh,  you're serious?  Let me laugh even harder!"

The Japanese guy was pretty cool too.  Most original take on skating I've seen in years.

Yeah, that's really good skateboarding in a totally different direction from where everyone else went.  I respect his control and ability.  The one truck skateboard deal has to be really impossible.

A friend of mine from Boulder says that Gesmer shows up there and skates bowls with that thing.

He also created Seismic trucks, which is doing pretty well with the rise of longboarding.

It not often that that happens here on Fark.  I concur.

Its not a real skating video unles he takes a rail to the nuts.

That was actually very innovative.

reminded me of my hometown freakshow Ol William Spencer who actually does some risky big stuff that most consider 'novelty' ticks, albeit this japanese guy had some of the most creative and insanely strange tricks i have seen.  I work at the art museum now where that red monstrosity sculpture is.  kids skate that thing all the time.

my brain got all giddy and i completely glossed over the fact that the dude i was mentioning was the second guy you mentioned.  Had some friends who worked on hollarado with him back in the day.  in summary, i agree.

That couldn't be Japan I didn't see a single asian schoolgirl getting gangbanged by a tentacle creature.

This is what happens when you give a Ninja a skateboard.
