Andy Anderson didn't qualify for the Olympic park finals, but he definitely turned up:

 

 

 

I haven't caught up with all of the event from last night, but I saw the first couple of preliminary heats, and yeah it was a shame that wasn't enough to get him into the finals. (His second run was very similar to that one except when he tried the nose manual at the end he fell forwards into the bowl, so it was nice to see him land it in run #3!)

 

The BBC commentators were (jokingly) complaining that the director of the Olympic broadcasting feed had chosen to cut away from Anderson's post-run freestyling in order to show the replays and the next skater's run!

It varies, sometimes it well into double figures, multiple visits and months of recovery time. Sometimes they'll make multiple attempts to land a trick and roll away in a way deemed acceptable rather than sketchy. Some videos get a rough cut edition released months after the original showing the multiple attempts. There are some skaters who just land everything they attempt. For most its a lot of blood sweat and tears before they can move on to the next big trick attempt.

Rough cut.

A classic.

I remember going in to a skate shop, probably ten years since I'd last stepped on one myself, and saying I'm a bit out of touch what's a good video? The guy didn't hesitate, just pulled that from the shelf.

Been dreaming about a part from an old skate video recently.  Like a 2 second clip of somebody dropping in, crouching real low, trailing arm slapping the coping as he goes.  Super sunny.  Maybe in slow-mo.  Probably had a killer soundtrack; They all did back then.

 

Any ideas? Maybe Santa Cruz or something.
