This is the most cons Ripsteins captured on video methinks. I counted 14 btw.

The link was awesome too!
Thx for sharing!

Vasek has a really interesting and distinct rhythm when he kicks. It's fun to watch - and even if you have the volume turned down you can still get a sense of music playing.

I don't know how focused he is these days, but I think that his style isn't quite as clean as some of the other top competitors these days (Honza, Milan and Aleksi in particular), but none of those guys make it look quite so effortless.

Thanks for posting this vid. Fun to see some new Vasek stuff.

*edit* "Clean" wasn't really the right word here. The shred is clean and looks very good. I think maybe "sharp" or "crisp" would've been a better word to describe Vasek's style vs. some other guys right now. Definitely not a criticism of his skill or style, simply a comparison.

I absolutely love seeing VASEK footage. The run with barflyh swirl and blurry whirling swirls was incredible. I dont know for sure, but I think its safe to say that he looks as though he is in better shape and his game is more controlled and difficult than I have seen recently. I hope he is at a place in life that he is shredding often again, the sport is not the same without him showing his skills . Looks clean to me ! Still my favorite player to watch.
