The Adam Shomsky 'WTF Flat Ground Tricks' video showcases some of the hardest and most unconventional moves in skateboarding at extremely slow speeds -- adding dramatic emphasis to each and every movement of the rider's feet.

Shot at 1,000 frames per second, the slow motion short film details the intricate footwork that goes into landing some of the more complicated board tricks in the sport at a speed that allows viewers to appreciate the trick's difficulty.

The takeoff and landing of each move is shot in real-time, and as the rider jumps up into the air, each twist of the ankle and flip of the board is slowed to a near halt.

Intended to showcase the skill required to successfully land some of the jumps, the video also could act as a handy how-to guide for those looking to master the moves at home.
