How'd you get into skating?
Watching others... hanging with other skaters...? Or maybe you saw a cool skate video, dragged your lazy ass off the couch, stole your drunken Mom's credit card and hit up the local skate shop for a ton of merchandise.

Welcome to idiot. Their fat wannabe-skater does just that and continues to make an ass of himself during the frequent interludes in which his pudginess graces the screen. Thank God for fat kids with extreme disorders. They just make the world go ‘round. Of course he realizes that skating is way too intense for his junk-food-scarfing fat-body, so naturally he goes the route of fruit-booting. Hooray for fatties!

Filmed from chicago to South America, this flick was billed as the "how NOT to skate" video. The montages of Vidiot are sure to please. Check out Thrasher's 1997 Skater of the Year, Bob Burnquist. He fully kills every ramp he encounters.
