Marble Floors, Gold Turlets and Chandeliers

Belatedly, another ten good ones from last year:

Nik Stain – ‘Bruns Skate Jawn’
The half-cab flips could’ve come straight out of an early Prime video, in a good way.

Aaron Herrington – ‘Static 4’
Skating to song, probably the best possible pace-setter for the two Static videos to come.

Brandon Westgate – ‘Zoo England’
He doesn’t slow down

Eli Reed – Japan part
Eli Reed goes Magenta in Tokyo with some scarfs and socks. See if you can find the ‘Street Cinema’ spot.

Matt Miller – DC shoe part
Rob Welsh’s onetime water boy released one of the gnarlier parts all year, and got a shoe for his trouble, potentially eliminating the descriptor ‘unheralded’ from his career. Switch 360 flip noseblunt, switch backside 360 noseblunt, etc.

Youness Amrani – ‘Almost a Part’
Some late-period 411VM vibes from this one, in a good way. Downhill manual revert and late 180 on the heelflip varial are bananas.

Chewy Cannon – ‘Transmission’
Dead or alive, there are few better to watch skate

Matt Bennett – ‘True Blue’
It’s cool to see how far this dude has been able to take his sack of mainly unconventional tricks – the pop out of the handrail fakie backside tailslide (to regular) is of note.

Carlos Iqui – ‘Iqui Does It’
Stevie William’s ‘Reason’ opener-attempter, but on a hubba.

Jamal Williams – ‘Static 5’
Among the best put-together video parts this year, and possibly for all of history

    So glad to see praises for Jamal. Dude is unstoppable right now. I assume he is pushing 40 yet he dropped a full part in Orchard’s Stone Soup as well as Static. So sick. The break dancing parallels in his Static part make it all the better.

    Fuk, that Eli Reed section was dope.

    I thought that line was Gold Turtles and was a Huysmans reference until your spelling helped me realize his southern drawl

    Isn’t the iqui part from 2013? Good selection but I’d of added at least one of the lurkville sections and/or bobbysd dekeyzars DC part.
