No, this guy isn’t crying because he rides rollerblades. He’s a practitioner of extreme unicycling. I’ve seen pics of the odd unicycle guy at a skate park, but I’ve never witnessed one in person. These guys have a DVD coming out titled “Under No Influence,” and they claim anything done on a skateboard can be done on a unicycle. The video is actually fun to watch. They did a good job taking the piss out of traditional skate videos (see the car scene) while managing some uh, radical moves. Of course, they are still on unicycles, so… What about their claim? Well, there are lots of rack-shots, some rail slides, and the equivalent of what would be grinds and ollies. Oh yeah, and acid drops too. They look kind of funny (besides being on unicycles) and the pacing is slow. See for yourself after the jump.
Here’s the link on You Tube.
Rail-slides: not just for skateboarding — AWESOME stunts on a unicycle. “What you can do on a skateboard, you can do on a unicycle.” If you thought unicycles were just for clowns and juggling, you’ve gotta see this! These urban/mountain unicyclists do what you might have thought was impossible.
We say, If you thought unicycles were just for clowns and juggling, you’re completely right!
