Catch Robbie Brockel’s Mile-High Kickflip in New “Surveillance" Part

Stunts, blunts(lides), and hubbas for Real Skateboards!

by Rainey Cruz

Real Skateboards pro rider Robbie Brockel rips like a bat out of hell in his brand-new “Surveillance” part. His is the 5th installment of the series that subversively comments on the monitor-addicted state of modern society. Cameras are everywhere—but guess what—so are skateboarders.

The edit follows the Phoenix native as he shreds through ditches, across gaps, over bumps, onto rails, and flips into some seriously heavy hubbas. All of this happens to the tune of UFO’s head banging classic “Doctor Doctor”

Fellow Real riders Ishod Wair, Kyle Walker (2016 Thrasher Skater of the Year), Chima Ferguson, Justin Brock, Ernie Torres, and Jack Olson also join Robbie with a slew of antics and bangers of their own.

The entire part is adrenaline-laced and candid. Brockel’s work ethic and perseverance feel just as inspiring as his tricks. Some of the slams are jarring, while the celebrations are plain hilarious. There’s humor, hi-jinx, plenty of elbow grease, and high-flying shredder all for the sake of raw skateboarding.

Slam the tour van door shut, Robbie Brockel is a working-class freak of four-wheeled nature. Hail his savagery and bodily sacrifice!
