These slow-motion tricks will change the way you look at skateboarding

Any chance we could make this an event at the X Games?

Beyond Slow Motion has for a while now been exploring the various aesthetic possibilities of many-frames-per-second digital footage, from milk attacks and paintballs hitting bare skin to the popping of dry ice bubbles.

The crew's latest episode, “Chromatic,” filmed a year ago, documents the stunning results from a curious idea: What if you covered skateboards with multicolored chalk powder, had some dudes do some sweet tricks on them, and shot it in extreme slo-mo?

As it turns out, the flipped boards fling the chalk dust out into beautiful rainbow spirals and other strange geometric curves and formations before settling into a fog that sweeps out over the sidewalk. Any chance we could make this an event at the X Games, with points awarded for the most artistic clouds? Because I’d actually watch that.
