Current Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Portable Flat Bar isnít the documentary of a moveable metal skateboarding obstacle. Itís about three dozen and one skaters thrashing not only a grind bar, but parks, mini ramps, and those not-so-mini ramps. There is even a little snake run footage and some wall rides. While you are watching this video, you can also listen to it at the same time. If you choose to do just that, you will hear sounds of Rock (Southern and Light), Jazz (Contemporary and Latin), and even some Dope Beats (Instrumental Drumming and 2 Live Crew). Enjoy.

Q: How many rollerbladers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: Eight. One to do it and seven to say, "I can do that."

Q: How many skaters does it take to make the Portable Flat Bar video?
A: 37!

That's right, folks, 37. This video about a portable flat bar was misleading. I didn't see it go anywhere. I did, however, see a bunch of skaters do tricks on it. I also saw those same skaters do tricks everywhere else. Mostly on flat ground, sometimes on ramps of various sizes, and even in parks and the occasional snake run. My main gripe is that the camera work is a little shaky at times, making it difficult to see Ocean Howell's big wall-rides or Brian Childers' flat-ground runs.
