Design Your Own Skateboard Trick? Syrmo Skate App & Trick Tracking Hardware From The Future

The future is here! Syrmo is a new skateboard app and accompanying trick tracking hardware that lets you track and check any of your tricks and locations. Want to design your own skateboard trick? Syrmo is a pad riser approach to a skateboarding “wearable”for your skate, but it comes complete with an app that shows your tricks, check you in, and can auto-edit footage for you. It appears they’ve CNCed their own designs for the riser and have cool little pieces that slide in to track all sorts of skate and trick stats for. They even included a way to 3D replay your tricks!

It pretty much has to be seen to be believed so here’s their gorgeous Kickstarter video…

One of the best features in that demo is the automatic editing of skate vids. Did you just make your own skate trick or come up with a custom skateboard trick? Catch the stats and the 3D replay for sure but if your buddy is filming you through the app it will auto-locate that spot in the skate video and let you add filters or slow mo. This is definitely the best looking skate Kickstarter we’ve seen in a while. It really adds tech + skating to get something new and awesome. Check out some pics of the Syrmo app if you want to drool over the future of skating…

We’re pretty stoked on this; we’d love to see this Syrmo Kickstarter fully funded so we can get the latest and greatest in the future of skate technology. There are still a few days left to go on this Kickstarter so get in there and back it so we can ours! Click here for the Syrmo Kickstarter

How Awesome Is Kilian Martin?

Pretty sure we all know the answer to that: freakin’ awesome. From stunning tricks to performance skating and all the incredible footwork in between here at Whatever we are constantly inspired by his work. Here’s two of our favorites we’ve been watching today to kick off the week…

Kilian Martin’s Carmen

His most recent vid and a great testament to his incredible style this is one video that will knock your socks off and leave you wanting more. A gold standard in classical freestyle and performance skating this vid gives some nice insight in to his character and how he develops his distinct style:

Kilian Martin’s Altered Route

One of our all-time Whatever Skateboard office favorites and an all around amazing experience Altered Route is one of the quintessential modern skate vids. Turn up the volume because you can’t miss the music which sets the stage for this great skate. Abandoned water park? YES PLEASE. We love the juxtaposition with original footage and can’t get enough of the aesthetics on this one. Since this is such a must-see skate vid around the office you can’t miss this:
