Skate or Die Review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRUndertow review of Skate or Die, developed and published by Electronic Arts for the NES. Although it may have garnered a cult following and is the spiritual forefather of the legendary Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, you wouldn't know it if you played Skate or Die. A rather clunky and rigid skateboarding video game, you will compete in various skating challenges, such as a downhill race, freestyle competition on a halfpipe, and a high jump. This video review features video gameplay footage of Skate or Die and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Eric.
This is the outtakes reel from Skate or Die segment that is on current****. It is the story of how Warren Ray uses skating to help him overcome his addiction. It is also in a contest for a spot at Slamdance Film Festival, so goto current and give it a greenlight.
skate or die is just somethin i threw together
This guy... literally is all about his skating were trying hard to put together videos but the UK weather is crap so puts off skating. All feedback from fellow skaters and directors would be good. Peace
Daniel Robles shows off his stuff in the streets of SD (San Diego) as he gives it his best. This video introduces the one and only Daniel as no one has seen him before.
This is a little video I did and was going to enter into the panasonic share the air contest.
The video features some skateboarders from santa monica and hollywood. The skaters in this video are Jake Eames, Josh Campos, Andrew White, and Zack McTee.
I didn't end up entering it in the Panasonic contest because I felt like it could have been better

Xcorps Action Sports Show #45.)"SKATEPIPE"-seg4-The Xcorps guerilla TV crew rolled into the southern California town of Upland to shoot pool skate legend Steve Alba AKA Salba carving the Badlands Pipeline skate park- home and roots to some of the best Vert skaters on the planet!
The show opens with on camera host Jason Lazo dwarfed by the 20-foot tall Pipe-part of 10,000 sq. foot Skate Park in Upland opened to the public in 2002 designed by Steve Alba and California Skate parks Purkiss Rose. Nice action shots here of Steve Alba flying on his board along with other locals catching massive air off the 360-degree concrete tube backed here by tunes and video from the band CLUTCH presented by RIVE.
After the break its back to the action at one of the wildest skate zones we have shot! The Upland park is a holy zone modeled after the original Upland skate park of the 1970s originating with the Baldy Flood Control Pipe. X cams roll the action of bank/vert skating starting with a mini-ramp take off ledge rolling into a phat metal coped half-pipe leading into a 20 foot full-pipe and ending in a deep swimming pool size vert bowl. See SALBA Rip and Tear here pumped by music and scenes from LA punk band The BRIGGS.
Segment three returns to the speed zone where skate wheels sing and bone-crunching freefalls are part of the ride! Great action here cut to SALBA jamming with his band POWERFLEX 5 at a local club. Xcorps host Jason Lazo talks with Steve Alba who lives in Upland about the killer park. Check out his 8-ply gnarler board and hear what he says about the PIPELINE!
Xcams roll on local hotness Michelle Riddle hurling the pipe course! She was the only chick riding the monster! Jason talks to her about how long it took her get to her skate level. SEN DOG does the tunes.
After that a special RETRO X piece with skate shots never before televised- 16mm B&W film shot at a Pocatello Idaho Skatepark in 1979. Rare! Check the gear! Theatrically twisted MUSHROOM HEAD video adds special spice to the action.
This SK8 show closes with host Bob Woodard reporting on a cool new skate product the PHOTON LIGHTBOARD. Check out these sick decks imbedded with 55 LED lights at a local San Diego park! Nice light trails man!!! SubnoiZe band DI does Skate or Die.
