Year in Review: These 10 Videos Defined 2021

Last year’s footy was hard to beat, but 2021 made a real go of it. We’ve been fortunate to be gifted with a bounty of full-length films chock full of impressive and creative approaches. Whatever this year’s been, it’s brought out some phenomenal skating. We’ve focused on full-length vids this year, but special consideration must be made for Mark Suciu’s avalanche of worthy parts in the fall, and Jack O’Grady’s outrageous pro debut for Pass~Port. These are some of our favorite videos put out in the last 365 days.

10: Gangreen

We’ve only had a few days to watch (and re-watch) this one, but Creature’s brutal film still has our bones shaking. Love it or hate it, that’s gotta count for something.

09: Mind Goblin

Bill Strobeck was more Bill Strobeck than ever in this one. This highly-anticipated video delivered in such a way that both skaters and film buffs went home happy.

08: Beyond the Third Wave

Palace brought us an instant classic courtesy of Kyle Wilson. Danny Brady and Charlie Birch got another nod. Must appreciate the dopeness throughout.

07: Hit Video

Max Palmer brought the good vibes, hit great spots, had a chill soundtrack, and brought smiles to all our faces. Mm hmm.

06: Vaccine

Dashawn Jordan’s pro debut capped with the ender of all enders. Between that and Toy Machine’s signature style, this was the one vaxx we could all agree on.

05: RESPECTFULLY

The crew was on point from start to finish, but it was Trung Ngyuen who killed by putting a fresh and fun spin on it.

04: Grand Prairie

We knew this one would be one for the books. Quasi’s refreshing full-length broken down into 20 minutes of polished footage and 30 of b-sides was well worth the watch.

03: Bunny Hop

Crailtap had a lot of fun with this one, no doubt. Hugely talented riding and great skits paired with Carl Aikens’s Chocolate pro debut made this one a treat.

02: Constant

Nike SB brought the summer hit nobody could forget. Goat-level skating, smooth editing, refreshing boundary-pushing bangers from some of the most legendary names – you knew this list wouldn’t be complete without it.

01: Nice to See You

And finally, the Vans global collab that made headlines. A lot of them. From Nick Michel’s unorthodox yet undeniable opening, to the Chima Ferguson ender that nobody could stop talking about, “Nice to See You” was the most 2021 vid to come down the wire.

Check out our previous Years in Review for more time capsules.
