Danny MacAskill “Way Back Home” Street Riding Short Film

Danny MacAskill’s new short film “Way Back Home”……

Let me start by saying that I’m not into BMX riding, street trial riding, or most other endeavours dubbed as “X-gameish.” Redbull sponsors all kinds of wild stuff these days, but this video took me by surprise — it’s by far one of the coolest videos I’ve come across.

The more you watch it, the more you are amazed by the stunts Danny MacAskill is pulling off — absolutely incredible. But don’t watch this video for the tricks. The video is beautifully produced, capturing the landscapes of Scotland from Edinburgh up though the Highlands. Edinburgh is amongst my favorite places I’ve ever been, and the highlands are certainly the most naturally spectacular. This video captures all that. With the music thrown in, it just all works.

A pleasant surprise for sure.

    First, I will say this is not bmx, its a different type of bike set up being used, larger wheels, no pegs.. etc.. whole different thing (not sure what exactly this is, free riding maybe).. but that is really here or nor there and im not even sure you were even saying this was bmx or just that you normally have no interest in things like bmx. Its an amazing video.
    I have a secret interest in things like this which helps explain why i blacked out one night junior year and bought a 100 dollar skateboard that has yet to be ridden…regardless the video was awesome, beautiful even.

    For your readers that do enjoy extreme sport videos i highly recommend watching the intro to Fully Flared.. The music is great, the tricks are in slow motion and the video overall is just fun to watch.

    • What exactly is full flared? I checked this out, it’s pretty cool. I wish stuff would blow up when I skateboarded over it. This is certainly one of those skills I admire because it’s something I totally can’t do — kinda like playing the guitar. The more rounded howiGit would be able to do this.
