In case you may have forgotten how much control California-bred professional skateboarder Torey Pudwill has on a skateboard, the man has just put out quite the reminder—a full part focusing solely on flatbar tricks obtained from all around the world.
Together with sponsor Red Bull and filmer Erik Bragg, Pudwill literally raises the bar in what has to be one of the most eye-popping parts to drop in 2017 thus far. It’s appropriately titled “Flatbar Frenzy” and poetically scored to Cage The Elephant’s “Trouble.”
The back-story behind the rail-centric insanity is Torey’s search for progression. According to Red Bull, the skater scouted and scoured for international flatbar spots, leaving no stone unturned in his search. Pudwill reached out to everyone from fellow rippers to rollerbladers just to get the scoop on location leads. The result speaks for itself. Two years of relentless dedication is summed up in four minutes of high-definition footage gold.
Pudwill relentlessly skates and destroys bars in New York, Japan, China, and South Korea. No rail was safe on this global skate and destroy mission and fans like us are very impressed with the beautifully captured carnage. The back-tail to 270 kickflip out and kickflip out into a steep ditch ender just have to be seen to even be fathomed.
