Backyard pools, Venice curbs and San Francisco hills - the most iconic backdrops in skate history, right? From the dawn of skateboarding time, San Francisco hills have been a mainstay. This is the city which plays host to Thrasher, DLXSF, FTC, EMB etc, etc. Before all of that history there were the San Francisco hills. If you're not already aware of what the name GX1000 represents then get ready. I don't think it's too much of an exaggeration to label this 51 minute video one of the gnarliest ever. The nerds on Slap already compared it to Danny Way and Bob Burnquist's mega ramp antics and it's hard to disagree. Yes, it's nominally 'street skating' but it's at speeds and on terrain that go beyond. Watching this video is scary, watching it in real life must be terrifying, actually doing it? Suicidal. As suggested by the title, despite the absence of explicit GX1000 branding (for legal reasons?), this is a homage to Pablo Ramirez. AKA as 'P-Spliff', Pablo was one of the founding members of the GX1000 crew and was tragically killed in 2019 whilst skating the San Francisco hills he loved. As such, there's a ton of previously unseen Pablo footage plus a cast of known and unknown maniacs encompassing everyone from Jake Johnson to Sean Greene. It's difficult to overstate how insane the skateboarding in this one is. Everything from mega tech to pared down wallride shit - all done at 30 mph+ by some of the most impressively reckless skaters on the planet. Bonkers. Aside from the likes of Jake Johnson, watching this did make me wonder how many of these skaters actually get paid though, I'll be honest. This death-defying shit is amazing to watch but it's probably a lot less amazing to deal with if you're unsponsored and looking at healthcare in a country where a basic operation can bankrupt you. I do know that a fair chunk of the GX1000 crew are affiliated with Supreme in one way or another so no doubt they'll be looked after. I just hope it's the same for the rest of them. What an incredibly non 'Thrasher' thing to say eh? Regardless, this is compulsory viewing!
