  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Inventing a skateboard trick is already a difficult task, but Matt Tomasello takes it a step further by designing and building his own skateboards that are integral to the tricks themselves. As a professional skateboarder and amateur engineer, Matt reinvents the sport with his unique approach to board modification. For him, it adds a layer of complexity that goes beyond competitive skateboarding and becomes more of an art form. With no rules to hold him back, Matt spends countless hours testing his collection of 50 plus DIY boards in a semi-abandoned parking lot that he and his friends have turned into their personal skate park. Each board is carefully crafted and tested, with Matt going through multiple iterations to perfect his designs. From a tri-fold 360 flip board that broke multiple times during the process, to a board with a spring loaded hinge that propels the truck around the entire skateboard, Matt's creations push the boundaries of what is possible in skateboarding. Despite the constant risks and falls, Matt is driven by his passion for the sport and his desire to constantly challenge himself. He is willing to endure the physical toll of skateboarding, as he believes that the board will usually break before he sustains any serious injuries. Through his innovative designs and fearless approach, Matt is redefining what it means to be a skateboarder and inspiring others to think outside the box.
  • Subtitles section
  • Inventing a skateboard trick is difficult enough, but this man homemakes boards that are part of the tricks themselves.
  • The most difficult board I've worked on was the tri-fold 360 flip I did recently.
  • Yeah, that one I had to make at least five iterations of the board and it would constantly break.
  • Meet Matt Tomasello, professional skateboarder and amateur engineer, reinventing the sport with a unique approach.
  • I think the board modification just adds a layer of complexity that kind of steps away from competitive skateboarding and more into like an art form.
  • It's definitely, to me, the most interesting skateboarding.
  • There are no rules.
  • Probably skateboard as long as I can physically do it.
  • Now to fall on the ground.
  • Oh boy.
  • Matt spends countless hours testing any of his 50 plus boards, all in a space as DIY as his own work.
  • This is a semi-abandoned parking lot.
  • Me and my friends built some ramps here to skate on.
  • This one did not take me long to make, but it took me forever to land the trick that I intended to do with it.
  • You do half a flip and then it does one and a half flips back.
  • When I land on it upside down or it hits the ground upside down, it pops and it can.
  • Oh God.
  • I knew that was going to happen too.
  • I wanted to design a board where the truck goes around the entire skateboard.
  • There's one spring loaded hinge that should just propel the truck around the board.
  • This one took a while to figure out.
  • Freely flips both ways.
  • I've done a few tricks where both sides flip at the same time and sometimes in opposite directions.
  • This one's probably my favorite.
  • I honestly would rather destroy my body.
  • I'm awkward.
  • As Far as like taking a beating, the board will usually break before I'm physically harmed enough to stop.
  • I think falling is like the most important trick in skateboarding.
  • It's an inevitable thing that's going to happen.
  • If you learn how to fall correctly, you're going to be able to just keep trying.
  • Always looking to test a new idea, Matt volunteered to engineer a new board from scratch in his bedroom workshop.
  • So this is my room.
  • This is where I do my building.
  • Yeah, I got a little workbench over here and giant stack of boards, usually donated from local skateboarders and friends.
  • So I've been thinking about this board where half of the board falls down on cables and a lever brings it back up before you land.
  • I have a sketchbook with a bunch of my old stuff, but lately I've just been building like rough drafts.
  • Sketching it is way harder.
  • I wish I had like a CAD program I could just test the physics on, but maybe I'll get there one day.
  • Sometimes I get inspiration if I see a machine or one of the boards I got inspiration by seeing a gate in somebody's backyard.
  • Draw a line.
  • I think it needs to be cut.
  • I decide where to cut based on how long the lever is and how much time I have for the board to come back together.
  • It's usually working with anywhere from like a half a second to two maximum.
  • But if it's just flat ground trick in the air, you really only have like a half a second, quarter of a second.
  • I've calculated it.
  • Nothing needs to be perfect, it just needs to work once.
  • I have a spare nose, might as well use it instead of cutting up a new one.
  • Reduce, reuse.
  • So they overlap because this would never hold anyone.
  • It's all a balancing act, like weight distribution from the front truck to the back truck.
  • Nothing's going to work if there's anything in between that can fold in.
  • I'm just going to drill the holes where the cabling is going to go.
  • Probably spent like hundreds of hours building different boards in here, just tinkering with things.
  • The first board I built, I think it was just a single hinge attached to the truck.
  • A pop in the momentum causes it to do a heel flip late.
  • I saw the physics get altered from the moving part and I was like, oh, this is interesting.
  • You can use it to your advantage.
  • I've been in Boston my whole life.
  • There's not many spots to skateboard.
  • So you got to work with what you got.
  • I think that's just natural progression.
  • How can I find a way to adapt to my environment and make it interesting?
  • This is the self nadis board.
  • There's this trick on a skateboard called the nadis spin, invented by Nadis Kapos.
  • He ollied onto a fire hydrant and grabbed a pole and spun around.
  • This is like way, way back.
  • Yo Andy, what year did Nadis do the nadis spin?
  • Okay.
  • This one, when you ollie, the back truck is attached to a metal bracket.
  • You can stall and you can spin around, even manual down a bank.
  • This one just took a while to figure out the proper angle for the stop on the L brackets and spring load tension, because you want it to hit as soon as you're at the peak of your ollie, because otherwise it's going to kick back and then just fold right back under.
  • This board is kind of like a book, I guess.
  • The only trick I've ever done on this is a kickflip where in the air it will open and close.
  • The momentum of it closing kind of finishes the last like quarter of the flip.
  • It's pretty impractical for anything else.
  • This one actually did not take me long to make.
  • Just cut in half with a spring loaded hinge, essentially just wind it up and you do a trick.
  • Just release.
  • You can flip the front or the back, depending on where your foot is.
  • You can adjust the tension so it'll close faster or slower, depending on the trick.
  • The other ones you saw, where it was mostly like flipping two coins, the timing, it's impossible to stop it.
  • This one's actually more on track.
  • Still working on this one.
  • It's supposed to do one and a half flips and then bounce off these compression springs.
  • Can't quite figure out the timing of it.
  • Still a work in progress.
  • My success rate is probably, I'd say about 20%, maybe 25%.
  • Gonna build a lever.
  • Luckily I have some leftover parts for that.
  • We're gonna use some metal cabling to bring back the second half of the board.
  • Threading the cabling through the holes, giving it it's track to reel back on.
  • My foot will essentially be on the lever while I'm doing the trick and then it's going to slide off.
  • The reel is going to retract when the lever closes and that's what's going to cause the board to come back together.
  • So now I'm just securing the cabling.
  • This clamp I made out of some old metal brackets, it doesn't come flying off.
  • Now I'm going to set the tension of the spring, control how fast it's going to close, and I usually adjust it at the spot based on how long the trick's taking.
  • Not bad at all.
  • With his success rate in mind, Matt returned to the skate park, hopeful to make his new creation work.
  • So we're at the skate spot, just going to try this board out.
  • I'm going to try to slide down here, have the board drop while sliding, and then reel back up right away.
  • Oh my god.
  • Yeah, I can't get over it.
  • I need weight in the front.
  • I might just have to take a different approach at it.
  • That was close.
  • The Blunt slide didn't work, but luckily 5.0 worked out.
  • I think that's it.
  • No matter how many tries his boards can take, Matt loves the freedom of the process.
  • They're trying to make rules in the Olympics and everything, but you can do absolutely whatever you want.
  • Nobody can throw a flag on the field and say you didn't do it right.
