This absolutely mesmerizing compilation features experimental skater Matt Tomasello from the Brooklyn-based skater mag Jenkem Magazine.
Tomasello is known for his Frankenstein skateboard collection comprised of different boards strung together into layers, reversible decks, or ripped pieces barely holding on to one another. Combining these moving parts into an actual style leads to something that Jenkemmag calls “Rodney Mullen on bath salts”.
Most clips are from Tomasello’s Instagram, but you won’t find them backdropped by hypnotizing vaporwave-esque beats there. Consumed back-to-back, Jenkemmag really illustrates Tomasello’s incredible footwork and technical mastery. You won’t see him pulling the hardest skateboarding tricks, but Tomasello isn’t trying to skateboard per say. He’s doing his own thing.
