What happened to throwing skateboards?
I've been watching a lot of older freestyle skateboarders and I noticed a lot of them throw their boards high up into the air.
Check out this video of (who I think is) Bruce Walker rocking a suit and longboard, it starts at about 4:10 - at the end of his routine, he launches the board with his feet and slaps it with his hand, launching it even farther into the air.
I saw Neal Unger - a 60 year-old skater - do almost the same thing in this video around 53 seconds in.
You hardly ever see this, and the move does seem like a little bit of a risk - it could hit you, or it could be difficult to catch. Curious if anyone knows more about this move? Let me know through the contact page or Facebook message me.
P.S. The License to Skate videos are also an amazing resource to learn old skate tricks!
