Throwback Online Video – DC Hoops Video

Remember this classic from the pre YouTube days?   It was relatively early in the proliferation of online video, and since the shots are all a bit on the outrageous side, everyone asked the question:  real or fake?   Rob Dyrdek swears it was all real, and just took a reeeeeally long time to do.   His frontslide boardslide to swish took over 4 hours across three days.

This also reinforces a point that I used to make frequently:  skateboarding requires such an extreme level of coordination that any traditional sport comes pretty easy to a skateboarder.  Hate on that.
