Barletta having fun

Check out this great video of Louis Barletta. His skating just looks like a good time, kinda crazy and all over the place yet still really high level. The video is from “Man Down” by the Tilt Mode Army.

TW: Your skateboarding is characterized by a lot creativity, most of which seems to convey your personality as well. Who or what influences you to do the different things you do on a skateboard?

LB: Ron. I like to refer to him as my personal confidant, but I guess his official title would probably be “personal advisor.” The dude is super ridiculously intense-some nights I can’t even retain all of the info he seems to be able to spit out at me. And other times our conversations are so intense that it leaves me with a headache the whole next day! But I don’t know, influences? Underwear? Under the influence?” — Silly Transworld interview

The whole movie is on Google video – doubtfully for very long.

(Thanks to Gouge for the link !)

    awesome. he’s got such an old school thing going on, with the 15 running steps to do a boneless off of something. hilarious.
    the ollie-up to crazy half-blunt, half-grapefruit grind on handrails is some serious shit though. ooof. plus he looks like a ramone.
