  3. Hollywood grade editing and filming. Definitely amazed at how well this video was edited and put together.

  4. I have recently purchased a GoPro hero 4 session and after a week of having it, it won't turn on anymore? Does anyone know how to fix this problem if so please comment thank you .

  5. I love combining my GoPro Session with my main cameras for my daily vlogs. Most versatile camera I could ever need. Always waterproof and ready to go! These guys created an amazing video.

  6. This is a really nice video. Keep making more skateboarding videos.
    And perhaps Classic cars videos too.

  7. The Barcelona 2016 hometown challenge just went live today! http://streetleague.com/hometown-challenge/

  8. went to Chicago to skate last summer and it was amazing! Especially me coming from a place where there's not even a handrail to skate and a shitty park with metal ramps. it was like am entirely different world. It was all pretty cool except for almost getting robbed a few times and shootings happening just a few blocks from where I was staying hahaha

  9. I skated briefly when I was like 12 and broke my arm then stopped. But I love skate boarding. I wish I stuck with it. Street skating is so sick

  10. I love skating but I'm just so awful. I can do the smallest Ollie and every once and a while a pop-shuv it

  11. My friend did that nose manual in a trench video in 98. He was on the first gear team they may have even used it in their video
