fuck me that wallride at 1:43 was so gnar!! The roof looks like it is falling to pieces and one slips and you go broadside over that fence. I dunno how he does some of this shit must be some kind of wizardry that I ain’t familiar with.
whole thing is bonkers but the roof gap to sign roll @3:23 is beyond comprehension
motherfucker had to not only get his speed just right to not impale on the point, but land on the bank and be composed and poised enough to jump out to the street in like 1/100th of a second
The skates today are so much better and he did this 13+ years ago. Such a boss. He blended stunts, technique and refined style like only Dustin Latimer did during that time. You might have a preference for Latimer but Feinberg was the more important skater and had the biggest impact in and out of the rollerblading scene.
dah said it best about the roof gap. I kept replaying that and looking at how quickly he was across the street. The whole thing never gets old, but that minute is the real deal. That back torque on the huge white ledge is fucking crazy too.
Oh the days…. I remember when I put my order in for Coup De Tat over the phone with rollerwarehouse. The guy on the phone asked me “are you sure?…. I have one copy of BFG left and the video is hella good” Sold. When I got it, watched it. Through the entire video my jaw was on the ground. This video made classic rock popular. Freestyle frames. Freestyle fishbrains. Ripping apart the psiris liners to make them stick out more. You’d have to add up the last 5 years of rollerblading progression to equal BFG
BFG is the most legend rollerblading video of all time, period
I remember back then aaron was always the dude that crushed parks and competitions…. Then this section came out and it was a wake up to everyone that feinburg was no joke, street and park he was there to dominate….
Name one section ever made up to right now that touches this. Salomon liners were awesome but the soul plates were so much smaller than nowadays. Its just hammer after hammer with no switch. BFG is seriously the greatest rolling film ever made. Re-release it and I guarantee you it would sell out.
do you remember his soul to gap over a wall – a second last trick in one of his section in Words? This is rollerblading! If I would like to show people rollerblading I would choose this type of rollerblading.
Does anyone still remember “do or die expression” ?
Go big my international friends !
Remember this shit next time you out to blade a gay ass curb, or “get tech”. Who does this remind you of today? Danny Malm? Jon Bolino? Style, skill, and BALLS. I miss this type of stuff. What happened to rollerblading?
Good to read all the good comments! No troll kids this time, cause they know nothing about this. They were sperms when Aaron was killing spots.
I almost named my son Aaron, but it sounds stupid in my language.
The song is till on my mp3. Whenever i feel o’m out of energy after a short session i turn on it and BANG!
