Sight Unseen
2001, 35 minutes
Current Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Sight Unseen is Transworld’s 12th video offering and has a cast including some of the most eclectic talent involved in skateboarding today. Heath Kirchart, Dustin Dollin and Tosh Townsend offer the stunt-orientated segments, while John Cardiel and Henry Sanchez focus on the art of fast-flowing skateboarding. Also included are three very different montage sections.

Sight Unseen is a video that comes as close to perfection as possible. The video is technically superior to most, featuring the editing genius of John Holland and Greg Hunt. The montages are also put together well, featuring cameos from rarely seen skate heroes like Ray Barbee, Lance Mountain, Matt Hensley, and Tommy Guerrero. From the get go John Cardiel proves that he is more than a typical hessian. One minute he’s executing the best boneless ever seen and the next he's grinding a 30 stair handrail. Amazing! Perhaps one of the most underrated skaters in the entire history of skateboarding is Henry Sanchez. This landmark section features Henry's triumphant return to skateboarding. He executes some of the fastest and cleanest lines Pier 7 has ever seen. Check out his full cab fakie frontside tailslide. For a finale, Sight Unseen brings us the always-dependable Heath Kirchart. Heath's part is representative of the patented "Strickland Slow-mo" style Baker/Bootleg fans have grown to love. Expect more Hammertime with finesse. In closing, I'd like to say: Sight Unseen is great but we don't need to see anymore 20 stair lipslides. It's over kids. Go find some shit in a junkyard and build something to jump off of. It's either that or learn some actual tricks.
