Board beauty

The motion is slow, the payoff large.

Everything that I ever needed to learn, I learned on a skateboard. This clip, from the Ty Evans and Spike Jonze-directed movie Fully Flared, shows the beauty of the boarded life. Shot completely on digital, it shows how far skateboarding videos have come from the shaky “Let’s put the camera on the skateboard, it’ll be just like a Steadicam” days.

This week’s Frandoms are by Toronto director Ian Robertson.
