|Classic Skate Videos|
A personal ranking of the skateboarding videos that I grew up with, and the best ones that are out there. Limited to 10 entries due to there being so many skate videos. A lot of other classics are excluded, along with a bunch of newer skate videos. Tell me your own personal favorites, and let's have a fun little discussion. Music entries are from each videos soundtrack, along with the cast from each videos. In lieu of writing out descriptions for each, I provided a YouTube video for your enjoyment, so check it out for yourself. One more thing, most of these skate vids you can still buy, but do your research carefully (bootleg DVDs are the worst), because you can't just pull out your old copies of CCS out of your attic and order these vids. Shred the gnar, my dudes and dudettes.

|Best list ever. |
|My personal favorites are all in this list: |
2.Welcome to Hell
3.Fulfill the Dream
Also, can we talk about how Yeah Right! was the most revolutionary skate video ever?
Also, ctrl + F Rodney Mullen vs. Daewon Song :(
|Dude, exactly. That's why I chose Yeah Right! over Mouse, haha. And mannnnnn, Rodney Mullen is the greatest skater to ever liveeeeeee|
|i probably watched dying to live and sorry like 1000 times with my buddies growing up|
jamie thomas my fave all time
|Out of all of these, I've definitely watched Sorry the most. Arto's part in it is sooooooo sick. Has there ever been footage of that monster bail he took?|
|^^ no footage as he was just warming up and no one was filming yet. List is good|
|That's what I thought. Although, the animation gives you good idea, I still would like to see just how sick that bail was.|
|Ride the sky|
|I never watched that, my dude. Never really learned too much about Fallen, might hafta change that. Good look, bud|
|Rodney Mullen is always #1 for me|
Rodney Mullen vs. Daewon Song 1 and 2
|As much as I wanted to put those on here, I just decided to make them company and team exclusive. Now, if I made a list ranking the best skate PARTS, you can goddamn guarantee those would be in the top spots, hahaha.|
|Baker 3 and Almost round 3 are two of my favorites, but great picks with the Zero videos. Also, interesting timing with this list as Nyjah Huston just came out with an incredible part for Nike I highly recommend.|
|I peeped that, and dudeeeee, he’s gotten so much better than when I last saw him. His lines were seamless as fuckkkk, and I really dug the cinematography as well|
Rodney Mullen vs. Daewon Song 1 and 2'
Just popped in to say the same!
|i think bake & destroy for me|
I personally loved Alien Workshop's "Photosynthesis" as well. I also second Baker 3. I remember being really disappointed by the Mystery one when it came out. Idk why
|Oh man! I forgot about Photosynthesis! Now I know what I'm doing after work, hahaha. And yeah, to you and budgie, if I were to have made this list bigger, some Baker vids would have definitely been on it.|
How bout them 411 vids, dudes?
|On snap, and thanks for the feature my dudes |
|Rodney mullen vs daewon song 1 and 2 |
|By popular demand, I added it as an honorable mention : )|
|baker 3 is rad too. and andrew's set in stay gold.. holy shit |
|I haven't seen Stay Gold in foreverrrrrrr, wasn't that the last video Reynolds did or something? That's the one where the cover is a pic of everyone, but he's the only one with his back turned, right? |
|no, he had a little scene in bake and destroy i think, been a while for me, i haven't been following|
but his set in stay gold is probably my favorite of any film, haha
|Wasn't someone's last video in Stay Gold though? It's been a super long time, so I could totally be wrong.|
|ahhh, heath kirchart. ellington wasn't even in stay gold lol|
|Ah! That's it! Good ol' Kirchart. He always had awesome decks back in the day.|
|Lol wat mod featured this none of them skate if so i need to see footy|
|Owen wilson in yeah right tho|
|I legit forgot some of these people were real...|
I haven't thought about anything related to skateboarding since TH Underground.
|loved watching skate videos with the boys back in the day|
