Shot in 1000 frames per second this super slow motion footage of various skate tricks from Youtube user Adam Shomsky (shot as part of his ‘Skateology’ series) breaks down all the tiny movements and precision timing required to pull off manoeuvres on a skateboard.

If you’ve ever climbed on a board, you’ll know just how hard it is to even get started, let alone master and these clips help us to understand why. You have to create an entire catalogue of muscle memory and learn to move both feet completely independently of each other.

Take a look at a selection of his clips below and for more video’s head to SHOMSKY’S YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
