Weekly "Why Haven't I Seen This?"-3

With the plethora of skate footage that's out there, it can be easy to overlook things. And yet, so often we stumble upon a video that we've never heard of and find ourselves asking why we hadn't seen it before. Each week, I plan to post another lesser-known video that deserves more recognition, for your viewing pleasure.

This week we have an oldie but a goodie. Frankie Hill was tackling giant gaps and handrails way back in the 80's. He was so far ahead of his time that Nate Sherwood made a documentary that was made seemingly entirely to stress how underrated he was and how much he changed skateboarding. I won't link it here because it's a pretty poorly made documentary, but it has some interesting stuff about Frankie if you want to go find it yourself. For now, enjoy Frankie Hill's part from "Propaganda" and prepare to be stunned.
