William Spencer: Spider-Man’s Skating Stunt Double

William Spencer: Spider-Man’s Skating Stunt Double

I am a dude who feels like they’re living out that childhood fantasy or at least trying to I grew up in the woods I fantasized the value you know movies and things that I saw and I just wanted to I wanted to live that out and I’m also trying to do two things at the same time trying to see what I can do with skateboarding and seeing what I can do with and in movies so I just moved to LA you know that feeling when you’re a little kid and you first learn kickflip so you’re first on any trick on a skateboard there’s a feeling where you’re like you can’t believe it’s ever gonna go down or if it’s ever possible and then you do it and it’s like this realization and how amazing it feels and how rad is right well experimental skateboarding is that except for you create new situations constantly instead of going yes I can three flip he’ll flip whatever flat ground trick it makes gives you the ability to constantly surprise yourself and you both set it up and then you play it out and it makes you feel like a mad scientist it’s cool what influence is my skateboarding is to take all the things that I like around me no matter what it is and I put it into the one thing I’m doing at that time [Music] I got it’s not worth it for a couple of reasons one because I like skateboarding so much but on the same in the same token I like action and I like action movies and stunts just as much and obviously that reflects on my skateboarding but I think it’s cool to both put them together and then divide them up and so once skateboarding I kind of made some satisfying things with that I wanted to divide up then and really try and like work on stunt work and make that something that I felt as good about as I do so I think the biggest contrast between the two things I’ve been doing while I’m out here skateboarding it’s not working is that in skateboarding the point is to obviously land and tricking yeah you take some bad signs along the way but it’s kind of a byproduct and with stunt work and it’s so rare that you land on your feet that actually the slams aren’t the byproduct but the project itself really interesting I’ve been super fortunate with the way things had gone the the two things I came out here to do if somehow it intersected I’ve had the opportunity to do them both at the same time so hopefully I’ll get to keep doing [Music]

  1. I remember him. He went to my school and had a deathwish. He was the kind of kid to do backflips off desks when the teacher was gone. I remember we went on a fieldtrip and he did a backflip off the porch of a hotel building. like the undertaker in 1998 like hell in a cell that landed in a spokesman table.

  2. So if they ever wanted to do a movie with James Franco as a professional street skater this is your stuntman.

  3. psshhh….ive got the worlds longest switch one foot nose manual but I don't have a red bull video..longest hang ten..longest hang ten on nose also…

  4. This guy is following in the steps of RODNEY MULLEN AND DAEWON SONG which is awesome .Sk8ing ,Snowboarding ETC. needs more people like that

  5. I watched a skate video from this dude years ago ! The song was from Bon Jovi. Anyone else see it ?

  6. Rodney Mullen created all those tricks…thus guy is a loser. Rodney Mullen created everything. this guy shouldn't talk about skateboarding unless Rodney Mullen approves because Rodney Mullen is a genius and created everything.

  7. This is just parkour. If I stand on my skateboard in my kitchen while cooking is that "skateboarding"? I mean, he is using a skateboard…true. But this is just parkour with a skateboard.

  8. Skill? Yes. Skateboarding? No. This shits cool and all but but parkour stunts and then landing on a board in the end isn’t skateboarding. Not trying to hate cause I couldn’t do it but all this new trendy things people do involving a board is kind of frustrating when it’s referred to as actual skating.

  9. First it starts as a backflup pop shove it.

    Then a double backflip pop shove.

    Next thing you know it’s a quad-backflip, tide-pod, surfboard pop shove it on nitro circus and people are snapping their necks left and right to do it the first.

  10. He is definitely the Skateboard Spiderman!.. my 3 man skate team would consist of William Spencer ,Richie Jackson and Rodney Mullen. GOD'S !
