That makes me all kinds of nervous! Did I tell you that when our Stephen was 13 ,he had a serious skateboarding accident? Surgery and 4 months of physical therapy and a 10 inch scar on his leg?

Nervous for sure! So sorry about Stephen's skateboard accident. Yikes! (I assume you're glad he didn't make a career out of skateboarding!) On the other hand, this film is so beautiful with the contrasts of the cold gray slush between dark dry areas and the beautiful music and filmography… No one gets hurt in this film and the "choreography" is awesome! This guy mastering a small "board" on four small wheels is inspiring. I'm am nervous watching other 4-wheeled sports

but I'm inspired by what makes a man (or woman) want to propel forward and those who direct, produce and film to make skateboarding look like art in motion!

We watched this when you first posted it...I thought I had left a comment...

Henry watched this VERY intently.
The girls kept saying, "Whoa!"
The music is beautiful! Can you believe Nine Inch Nails is the band that performed the music???
