2014 Thrasher Skater Of The Year runner-up (at least in all plaza skaters’ hearts) Bobby Worrest and Danish wunderkid Hjalte Halberg have become fast friends in recent times. Despite riding for different board sponsors, Bobby for Krooked and Hjalte for Polar, they both ride for Nike SB. As a result of many trips together, mostly to Copenhagen, New York and Paris, they have accumulated enough quality footage for an almost 10 minute edit for Thrasher.
Dubbed “That Looks Ok To Me,” the shared part is an absolute pleasure to watch. Other than the incredible skating, you can actually feel how much the two dudes enjoy each other’s company and skating together. Hjalte proves that he can shuv out of pretty much any grind or slide on a ledge, and Bobby might just have the best switch tre flip around, up or down anything. OG D.C. skater Reese Forbes even makes a short cameo at Pulaski.
While for the most part, the edit is ledge, flip trick and manual focused, that in no way means that isn’t super heavy. Bobby’s switch back lip on “the gold rail” in Washington D.C. despite it being skate-proofed is as serious a hammer as any.
While the title of the edit is “Looks Ok To Me,” the truth is that it looks great to us. Watch it here.
