The “Manramp” Video Takes DIY Skateboarding To Hilarious Extremes

Real friends use each other as human skateboard obstacles.

by Rainey Cruz

Having a bad skate session? Week? Month? Start to 2017? Then let The Worble’s new edit, “Manramp” put everything in appropriate, do-it-yourself perspective—life is short, so take some time out to smell the roses and skateboard with on your friends.

The Vermont-based skate collective of brothers Tom, Dave, and Steve Mull, is very serious about rewilding skateboard culture. So much so, that they have a website and blog completely dedicated to everything from the Polynesian genesis of surfing and skating, to modern, outside-of-the-industry-box essays, interviews, and skate clips.

The “Manramp” video itself is a comedic, two-minute manic ride that features skaters Dave Mull, Steve Mull, Chris Colbourn, Rick Rossi, Jordan Maxham, and Cory McMillin getting their kicks and tricks on a very daring plywood-carrying homie.

The gang pulls off everything from drop-ins, manuals, and even wallrides on their fearless friend. Shot and edited by Tom Mull, with original music by Andrew Harris, “Manramp” is an ode to the free inner skate child in all of us. When all else fails, remember to stay wild and stay weird kids!
