The Foundation team pushes the limits with the That's Life Flick, showing what street skating can look like. They hit everything in sight, hard and fast - not just rails and gaps, but everything. It's a good skate video with a lot of variety. For skaters who are looking for hype or special effects, you might want to look elsewhere, but for original, hard, fast street skating, check out That's Life Flick.

Anyone who knows me knows very well that I watch an obscene amount of skate videos. Also, anyone who knows me knows to listen up when I recommend a good skate video. “That’s Life Flick” (2004) by Foundation Skateboards is one of those videos. Featured riders include Matt Allen, Corey Duffel, Ethan Fowler, Angel Ramirez, Leo Romero, Mike Rusczyk, Daniel Shimizu, Tony Silva, Gareth Stehr and Justin Strubing. Not only is the line up full of hammer droppers and rail smashers, but the skateboarding itself is dynamic and otherworldly. This is one of those videos to watch and soak in before you go skate.

Notable parts are laid down by Leo Romero, Justin Strubing and Corey Duffel. In my opinion, Leo shuts it down. He has the very first part, which comes with a lot of pressure, and he delivers with a wide variety of tricks down obstacles of all types. The youngster definitely establishes himself as a hard-hitter in the streets. Justin, probably the most seasoned Foundation skateboarder next to the legendary Ethan Fowler, delivers a solid part with his own unique brand of high-paced skateboarding. Mr. William Corey Duffel drops the final and, perhaps, most epic part. I personally am not a fan of Corey, ever since he made some racist comments about Stevie Williams, indiscreetly calling Little Stevie a “trashy nigger” in an interview some years ago. However, it can be agreed that his skateboarding speaks for itself. Two parts in one, white-trash Corey terrorizes the streets and takes no prisoners. Handrails everywhere… beware.

All in all, “That’s Life Flick” is a great watch from start to finish: excellent intro and outro parts with a fully packed “Friends” section. The skateboarding is hard, fast and packaged in classic Foundation style. For those of you who remember Foundation’s “Art Bars: Subtitles and Seaguls” (2001), which I also emphatically recommend, this review might stir some memories. I have personally recommended “That’s Life Flick” to a number of young skaters I know and even provided them with bootleg copies of the video. Well done Tum Yeto. The streets are yours yet again.

'Today was a bad day. Everything about it was the same as any other day, except for one thing: I couldn't skate at the end of my daily 9 to 5 grind due to the sky taking a piss. So to compensate I put on a skate vid and I started to get all nostalgic and shit. I got flashbacks of when I was still learning to ollie, back when my young eyes were glued to the TV watching the X Games, the internet trick tip tutorials. the Saturday mall sessions, the broken boards, busted bearings and the torn things on my feet (I would call them shoes, but eish! LOL). I started to wonder why I was watching this vid in the first place. What would it achieve? Why did I even start skating and even more importantly why do I continue to skate?

I’m watching this vid now, “strange world” (Zero Skateboards) and I'm checking out Dane Burman open his part with a front heel, then fakie flip, switch front 180 up and nollie heel down a 3 stair platform, then a backside 360 down a 5 stair all in one line. In “suffer the joy” (Toy Machine), Billy Marks busts out a fronside flip down a young set, followed by a switch backside heel and then a front nosegrind down a rail. While this is hardly innovative it does motivate. I’m sure y'all have seen similar lines in other vids. However sick these lines may be, most of these tricks are not out of reach (that’s right, all you lil BW dudes can bust them out). Fine, it may take a while to bust them in the street environment, but it’s something to aim for. But why?

In “Ride the Sky” (Fallen Shoes), Chris Cole opens with a trick that blows the mind. A back 180 nosegrind, switch big spin heel out on knee high ledge. That’s innovation right there. Of course, there’s also the king, Rodney Mullen, ripping it to bits in “Round 3” (Almost Skateboards). I don’t even want to try get into the fire that dude brings! Oh shit, that reminds me, in “Rise Up” (Element), Janne Saario unleashes manual madness! His pivots can only be rivaled by Daewon Song. Word! But I’m losing the plot now. LOL... Anyway, the reason I used to watch sk8 vids was to learn tricks on a ‘monkey-see-monkey-do’ type principle. Hell, I learnt how to inward heel and better my trĂ© from Mike Mo Capaldi’s part in “Fully Flared” (Lakai Shoes). But with some of these vids, I aint gonna learn shit! Fuck’n fakie-bluntslide big flip out! It’s like fantasy skating. Sure, I have vague dreams of doing that shit and making it pro, but I know that that is highly unlikely. But I still aim for it. Why?

This brings me back to my first questions. Why did I start skating n why do I continue to do so? The first one is easy, I wanted the glory! All the good stuff! Winning contests and shit and generally being boss. That aint the case anymore, well it is to a much lesser degree (I can still hope right? LOL). I don’t know why I still do it though. Is it fun? Is it an escape?
If so why does it feel like such hard work?'
