Skipper - Remission 2008
« on: January 21, 2008, 01:54:52 PM »
Finally got around to finishing my newest video project. I call it "Remission" for the sole reason that all my other videos start with "Re"

I filmed it in HD, but you the consumer will have no part in downloading a 1.5 gig file, so for your viewing and downloading pleasure, I give you the 15 meg version of "Skipper - Remission."

Enjoy :)

Dude!!!!!

you son of a bitch!
You gapped on the closed jew school in SS?!
I've always thought about going on that roof, but never made it.


Your backtuck landings! Your knees or back doesn't hurt landing like that (that big layout in the beginning sorta)

The school I shot at was in Burke Va, wheres the school in silver spring you are talking about??

And I always land like that on backs, my body is wayy to lengthy for anything else, so I do it just right so I absorb without hurting myself.

Thanks for the comments guys! :)

Dude, I need that footage. send it to me at Skipper@americanparkour.com please!!!!! hahaah I cant believe you still have that.

The park is actually the roof of an "underground" elementary school (also in Burke). Its actually probably the greatest elementary school Ive ever seen..... lots of goose poop though.... yeahhh.

haha, I did it off camera and there was a girl there and she screamed... like, really loud. So I started laughing and asked if she could do it again but she was embarrassed, so one of the other guys there was like "Yo I'll do it!"

It was pretty funny to me, so I kept it in, lol

Good stuff man, I just hate how everything looks smaller since you are kinda tall, some of those things I bet are definitely pretty impressive, keep it up man.

Haha, I know what youre talking about. I always look as something and think "man thats big" then I see it on tape compared to my size and think "man thats not how it looked from up there." But a fish-eye lens can cure that :P

Oooooooooo new spots!!!!@12~ Skip you've got to take me to these!

COOL video - a lot of it was very fluid. I love how I can tell your style cause of the lankyness. How's your wrist doing? I wanna go bowling =P
