  • romy dom

    I forgot how sick this video wass. the good ol days

  • maybe razors should have a look at this trailer n then think about their one for the apparently most anticipated dvd….

    Sick dvd, grab some popcorn n enjoy!

  • http://rollernews roller/bmx rider

    Chris Cheshire & Chris Farmer are fuckin raw in this movie . Underestimated was the shit

  • JustMe

    In terms of the marriage between style and technicality I think this was one of bladings high points. Perhaps *slightly* too baggy but at least skaters seemed to have an identity in the extreme sports scene. Now we look like we are wanna be *rockstar* skateboarder art students.

    And if the statement in the description is true regarding the footage being filmed in two weeks hell, thats some productive commited skating. Pros struggle to squeeze out an edit every 6 months.

    Really enjoyed this video, first time I couldnt stop watching in a while. You forget get what kind of stuff was getting done 7 years ago!

  • SeeK

    The older the better

  • collin d.

    this was the first rolling movie i ever saw…watching this brings back so much nostalgia. as much as i love skating now, i kinda wish i could go back to those old days when everything seemed so new and intriguing to me. i owe all of my skating to this movie.

  • http://jinjoint.com Sean T.

    Really good video.

  • adobsnc

    i still got this one at the crib i love watching it before i go skate…the teams back in 02 were spectacular…..dustin halleron, walt austin, kelso’s, farmer, the cheshire cat, will gordon, tim taylor, and malik…the second regime team might have given them a run for the money back in the days….that would be an good battle.

  • jr

    sean kelso=NO STYLE … just horrible … same thing now in present day

  • alkolo

    all the tricks are heavy,creative and high tecknikal..make me think that actual rollerskating is shit

  • alkolo

    or overEstimated

  • Beef

    jr i wanna bitch slap u in da face.. sick dvd, makes you wonder if the skill level in videos has gone down hill or just in a different direction…

  • portas

    great dvd. would say this Farmer, Cheshire and Thompson at their best. I think Will Gordan peaked a bit later and Kelso was way off his best ( I would say he was at his best around Legacy time)

  • Decepticon

    My fucking god Cheshire. I forgot how flawless that section was. CHESHIRE IF YOU READ THIS PLEASE TELL ME YOU’VE GOT ALOAD OF CLIPS IN TRUTH 2

  • truth is

    what happened to all these guys? ? ?

  • charls kuhns

    it also has rollerbladers rollerblading places

  • firth

    best hype intro ever. i never get past the intro before i’m out the door n skating!

    maybe staying in though as i live in england and it’s pissing it down :) great times

  • Stubz

    This and Words are the best DVD’s.
    What the fucks happened to Rob Thompson?
    Farmer and Thompson are fucking mental in this!

  • DarthRoller

    People can hate on baggy clothes all they want, but rollerbladers had a style all their own back then. You knew a roller when you saw one, even when they weren’t wearing skates. We just look like skateboarders now.

    That dvd was pure, un-adulterated sickness. Farmer’s ability on rails at that time was insane. That’s nearly 8 years ago and a lot of people are only catching up to that level of technicality now, with nowhere near even half the steez. Insane to think about.

    540 true mizou in the intro…….bloody hell. Nearly 8 years ago!

    Everyone was killing it in Underestimated. How they managed to pack in all that top, top rolling in such a short period is beyond me. I think people were far more juiced back then.

  • stubz

    DarthRoller is true man, not hating on skinnys but its like they stopped being baggy and lost the passion its all about money now and park is going to kill street, out of all my friends theres like 1 or 2 who skate nothing but street.
    If you watch and old DVD and then a new one theres such a difference, everyone was juiced in the old DVD’s

  • Ben

    Does anyone remember that video with the Kelso Bros. and chris chesire, and a bunch of other people. I THINK Denial was apart of it. It had Beastie Boys – Flute Loop in it and had a Jewel song for the ending credits. and at the very end, it has clips of em hitting one spot where they cut chains of the rail and rip it up at night. i cant remember the name!! I have a feeling it was called Heart or something like that, someone please lead me in the right direction.

  • http://vimeo.com/user1111965/videos Richard Karlsson

    This video is so sick..
    And ben i think you mean “Choose your genre”

  • Anonymous

    That video was called “Heart” Pure awesomeness

  • lol

    no wonder rollerblading has died in U.S. kids are afraid to get their hair messed up nowadays. they do safe litte shit tricks on little obstacles and claim to have style. rollerblading has become figure skating.

    Back in the day schedule:
    Sunny summer Sat-Sun mornings- wake up between 9-10 am
    Hit up your friends
    Warm up spot- between 10am-12pm
    Food between 12-2 pm
    Skate spots from 2:30- dawn
    End session- peace out homies and call it a day
    (Motivation to actually skate, see cool steeze and tricks, baggie look, and hit up nice street spots)

    Today’s schedule:
    Sunny summer Sat-Sun mornings- wake up between 9-10 am
    Hit up the very few friends that now skate
    Warm up at a skatepark
    Food between 12-2pm
    Either back to the same skatepark or off to another skatepark
    End session- call it a day
    (*No motivation, no “cool” steeze or tricks, rockstar look, and no street spots)

    For you noobs who are new to skating, you all missed out on our era. Wish we could go back to street skating. Those days are long gone.

    Video makes me want to cry, how skating has changed so much…I don’t even know, Those days were truly the golden age. Don’t get it twisted though, rollerbladers, we still rip…but yeah, a side by side of farmer then and now is crazy, he don’t skate the same…fuck looks or dress style, he doesn’t skate the same…he still rips though and he still has mad hops haha. All these guys still fuck shit up…but yeah it’s just different, idk very strange.
