Video: Duncan Shaw Rides Trials in an Abandoned Waterpark

Oct 23, 2019
by Duncan Shaw  

After seeing this insane spot in Killian Martin’s skate video “Altered Route” all the way back in 2012, I knew I had to ride this place. After some shows at Sea Otter Classic this year, Myself and friend Dave Mackison managed to get out to the desert and put together this video.

 Have to say, blown away by Kilian's video. Some really imaginative skating beyond the endless grinds and slides of a lot of videos recently. Also the choice of music reflected the wistful melancholy of the derelict water park which was quite emotive.

 He's like the Danny Macaskill of skateboarding.

 Getting too deep bro. I just wondered who brought a chainsaw to the desert to cut down ONE palm tree. @duncshaw thanks for something different.

 Just went back up and watched it. Not much for skate vids...so basically I'd never seen most of his tricks.

The birds at 3:40...you can't top that.

 Both Duncan's and Kilian's videos were top notch! Some of the shots made the location look like a post-apocalyptic Santa Monica.

 Incredible job to filmer, editor and rider here! Rider was flawless and the music was paired really well for the vibe of the video. Enjoyed it thoroughly, awesome work!

 Need sunglasses to watch that! Cool that there was random big rocks around to ride too and not just roof top stuff.
