    Have you tried grabbing something bigger than 900/1080 ???

    He did a fucking 1620…..It`s not like he didn`t grab a makio or a 360, morons.

  20. damn Says:

    ^ I agree with him. That was beastly. Maybe Roman will learn them too. Imagine how good that would look! But you’ve gotta give props to wake for landing if FIRST.

  21. goomi Says:

    Finally guys in our sport start to get it, that for survival of the sport u need to push the limits and bring it to competitions, not only skate small and unique stuff as half of the pros do(not saying that it isn’t sick and good to watch). Freestyle skiing used do be also really unpopular some time ago, but look where it is now. Next year they will be in Olympics!

    when u do 1620 for the first time i dont think iu can grab ( no one start doing 540 grab at the first time they try ?) maybe he will ( or not )

    hope that Abrate will learn this too.

    “Chris Edwards did that years ago” -the Artful Throbber

    No he never did. But Chris inspired a kid like wake to keep pushing the limits. Rollerblading isn’t Barely Dead, its Really Dead, maybe this will help bring some attention to it. Woodward Camp isn’t talking about skateboarding this week, they are talking about the 2 rollerbladers killing the mega-ramp.

    Ha. Wake again deserves more than forever am on razor, getting paid so little that he has to ride for all extreme wheels show. I know a lot of people that either were pro or should be that don’t get the attention they deserve. You gotta think like this. Andy doesn’t pay any of them enough
    Not Franky, haffey, Murda, Wake, Roman, etc..
    That says a lot about a company. Don’t pay their most prized possession enough to live properly. Even the scooter riders get paid way more than our top pros in this company

    Whoa… what about the 1440? He gobbled all that up in this 1620 ahmagad! This is truly epic! Blading just seems to get so much more awesome every time I’m not looking!

  40. dickheads Says:

    only in rollerblading would some asshole critique that by asking why he didn’t grab. He landed a 1620 you fucking morons. When Tony Hawk landed a 900 his fellow skateboarders didn’t critique his style, they celebrated his success and gained maximum publicity for their sport. We, on the other hand, have a bunch of curb tapping assholes criticizing something they know nothing about, nothing they could ever do, and no idea how hard it is to land a trick like this and look good doing it. Not Haffey, not Morales, not Edwards, not Feinberg, not even the Yasutokos have ever landed this trick – grabbed or ungrabbed.

    Figure skaters spin 1440 (Quad) on a regular basis smoothly and without ramps; frequently in sequence with 1260s.

  42. Danielson Says:

    “dickheads” said it best… And the guys he mentioned are like super heroes… I don’t think Wake is ready to be a “big name pro” yet, but you gotta give him atleas some respect… Otherwise you really are just eating sour grapes.

    true words have been spoken there, my brother.

    A bunch of bitter fruitbooters who cannot handle the fact a little kid landed a big spin on a ramp they barely have the balls to drop in on while they are still doing a meter long souls on knee high ledges with waiters arm and a fucking vest!

    Keep customising your skates you posers

  46. Black sabbath Says:

    Liking these comments. Finally the curb tapping faggots are being put in their place. That trick is what Chris Edwards had in mind when he started this. Our pros have gotten soft. This kid just woke them up.

    “When Tony Hawk landed a 900 his fellow skateboarders didn’t critique his style, they celebrated his success”

    To be fair, Tony Hawk grabbed his 900 ;)

    Just joking of course, very impressive what Wake has done here and there’s no reason to expect a grab on that trick.

    It’s great to see all the exposure he’s bringing to our sport! Wake will save rollerblading one day!

  55. Gang Green Poosy Says:

    He did land it!! Jesus, I can’t believe you guys don’t remember it :| noobs.

  56. Crusty Cock Slobber Says:

    Sorry guys he’s correct, Chris Edwards has landed it already a while back…

  57. Graeme Wilson Says:

    ^ those last 2 comments were clearly by the same guy. No he didn’t land a 1620, just doing a straight big air was celebrated back then. This mystical Chris Edwards 1620 is nowhere to be found on the internet. All that comes up is Wake’s video.

  58. Anonymous Says:

    Chris Edwards did this before indeed!

  59. Anonymous Says:

    I predict several other people will land it before the end of the year.

    That’s how these things work. Everyone feels like they’re “impossible” til one person does it. Then once people see it can be done more people do it. It’s a lot easier to be the 2nd person to do something than the 1st.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if someone like Roman is already thinking about it

  60. BLADER GANG Says:

    Big DEAL NIGGA! I WAS DA FIRST NIGGA TO SMOKE A BLUNT AND 360 OFF A 20 STEP SET IN COMPTON NIGGA! AND MY J’S WAS STILL FRESH OUT DA BOX NIGGA!

  61. damn Says:

    um, I’ve been around since before grinding, and I never remember Chris Edwards landing this trick. His big trick on vert was the double ore ida, which was basically a 720 mctwist. I can’t even remember him ever landing a 900. Corey Miller was the guy who could land 900s over launch boxes way back in the day. On street course CE did huge airs over a high bar, even did front flips over the high bars, but he was never a major spinner, more of a powerhouse/big air skater/pioneer.

    If Chris had landed a 1620, then why was it such a big deal when Cesar Mora landed the first 1080 on vert? Or when Jason Stinsman landed a 1260 over a launch box? I think certain jaded people wanna believe that everything in blading has already been done but in fact there is much much more that could be done!! Roman, Cj and now Wake are proving that and I think it’s awesome to see!!

    BHAHAHAHAHA! I almost lost it.

    Anyway. This is freaking dope. 1620! That’s 4.5 rotations! His eyeballs must have wanted to pop out from the centrifugal force.

    Re: All the ice skating comments that I see popping up. I knew somebody was gonna say some shit like that. The only correlation that the two have is the rotations, everything else is completely on a different planet. Yes, it’s amazing what those ice skaters do, but that doesn’t take anything away from the amount of balls or skill it took to pull this one off.

    Re: Grab-asses. I’d be the first to say that “if ya don’t grab, it don’t count”. In this case, I have to say, “get real guys”.

  64. Chris Edwards Says:

    Great job earthqwake. I never even tried a trick this big.

  65. no shit Says:

    chris edwards landed this trick in the secret bonus section of the Hoax. Its why they called it the Hoax. he did the trick on a secret mega ramp in Arlo’s back yard way before they ever had mega ramps. oh, and edwards grabbed it.

  66. ^^^^^ Says:

    thats some funny shit right there. congrats wake. dont let these scumbags trash talk you. they are just jealous you showed up all their phony ass idol pros who lack the balls to even attempt your trick.

    WAKE IS TOO FUCKING OLD TO NOT BE GRABBING HIS TRICKS.

  68. funny shit Says:

    Chris never did that trick. You mind can just ask him on Facebook. Wake is sick. Deserves to be pro when he was 14. There is secret bonus section on vhs. Your speaking Easter egg and that’s not what they did. I have the video and its on bit torrent online. TOO BAD YOU DUMB fucks are whining about this rather than uniting over it. The boarders won. We act like crabs in a barrel. When one is breaking free, a thousand more are trying to pull him down.

    but wakes to fucking old to be wearing a helmet everyday of his life. cmon kid.

  71. ^^^^^ Says:

    you don’t grab 1620′s, you pray while spinning that you won’t die. grabbing is for you mere mortals who tap curbs and shit.

    just wondering, why hasn’t a Valo pro done a 1620?

  72. Fact Says:

    let’s put this in perspective….what do the following rollerbladers have in common? Chris Edwards, Arlo Eisenberg, Fabiola, Jon Julio, Rachard Johnson, Brian Shima, Brian Aragon, Chris Haffey, Eric Bailey, Aaron Feinberg, Dustin Latimer, Franky Morales, Takeshi Yasutoko, Ramelle Knight, Coco Sanchez, and the entire fucking country of France.

    None of them ever landed a 1620.

  73. funny shit Says:

    ^fact^
    Truer words have never been spoken. 1620 4.5 rotations is higher than even the 1440 4 rotations front flip I found on YouTube

    but wakes to fucking old to be wearing a helmet everyday of his life. cmon kid.

    When you do 1620′s on mega ramps he’s probably smart to wear a helmet. You curb tappers don’t need helmets because all you do is jump a foot off the ground and maybe stub your toe occasionally. Grow a pair of balls first before you start talking about helmets.

  75. Manny Says:

    these comments are hilarious. kid lands a 1620 on a fucking mega ramp and all the small skaters rush in here to tear him down. seriously??? you’re all a bunch of tight pant wearing faggots with no balls doing little tricks on little obstacles that no one cares about. this kid is putting rollerblading back in the spotlight where it belongs. keep practicing your “grabbed” 360′s over a garbage can faggots – no one cares.

  76. Ronnie James Dickinson Says:

    Jesus fucking Christ. This kid is pushing the limits and he’s not hit his prime yet.

  77. rando Says:

    So I have no knowledge about skating but doing something no human on planet earth has done is a good thing regardless if he ‘grabs’ or not. Maybe I’m wrong here but I as a non skater sure as fuck wouldn’t be watching this if it was a trick that had been done before.

  78. Anonymous Says:

    Thx Rando , we always need the point of view from the non-blader community. See how it goes , lil curb tappers ?

  79. funny shit Says:

    Thank you rando. Guys like wake, Lang, abrate, etc. These are our new trend setters and leaders. The future looks far more complicated for the likes of grind artists only. Yeah you for balance, Yeah you for switch ups, you even got a fan base. But can you move a crowd of non-bladers Too stand up and go wow. To make them want to learn how to skate.

    Edwards did this years ago, was definately on a secret Hoax section

  85. Ripley Says:

    I looked at the footage in slo mo and his hand did not touch the ground, he touched his skate. It counts. It’s in the record books.

    Now you can all try and convince him he should be tapping 3-stair rails instead of spinning over a mega ramp cause we all know tapping little obstacles is what rollerblading is all about, that and wearing spandex and disco skating.

    bahahaha…this kid is exposing the “pros” for the pussies they are. It takes a big pair of balls just to attempt a trick like that much less land it. pros lack balls today.
