Favorite Video Parts #5: Cody McEntire - Smoke and Mirrors
Cody Mac can probably do anything he wants on a miniramp, most likely from hanging out with Dave Bachinsky so much. So his opening line just sets the tone for the rest of this timeless video part, where he looks so natural on the board, both switch and regs. Lynard Skynard's Simple Man starts chiming in as Cody proceeds to demonstrate an enticing sneak peak at his big bag of tricks, only to close out his opening line at Carlsbad with a nollie big spin down the gap. The whistles at 0:57 provide the perfect stoke, almost as if you were right there with the crew to dish out some high fives after the trick. And then he proceeds to issue his controlled destruction of spots. I love his trick selection for the line at 1:33, I don't think I've seen many people flip in and flip out of the tall manny pad at 2:23, the catch on the switch flip at 3:29 is almost comical for how cool it is to look at, and I still feel like his "spread eagle" nollie big heel down Carlsbad ender is the sweetest trick done at that gap.
