Gott admit, after realizing how fucked this country is due to the current political shit storm we are all in, KOTR is a great escape from all things fucked up into things fucked up in a more enjoyable manner.

It's a friendly reminder that the direction of life is always open for interpretation.

Madars Apse sounds like an alien trying to do an impression of a human to blend in.

Evan Smith is very sick on a skateboard... but probably shouldn't be filmed talking any more.

I'm pulling for Foundation because I like the Sinclair hating on his own team and vice versa dynamic.

Actually a brilliant move on Real's part, giving them one more gnarly dude in the van like that dude who was the coach and still played in Slapshot. 

Sinclair's fatass isn't flipping anything but cheeseburgers into his mouth but Brock can at least skate.

It really stressed me out that Glick couldn't pee in 2 minutes to secure some solid points, especially since no one on that team makes money, which is another thing I genuinely find disturbing and don't believe Foundation has no money to pay their riders. You feel good being the only person in your van who gets a paycheck Sinclair? Go fuck yourself.

seeing zion take that slam and then walk away limping, telling andy roy he wasn't fucking with the thing anymore, it got me wondering. do you think those big brands (nike, red bull, monster energy) are down with their riders (dudes like zion and ninejah) participating in kotr? i could see somewhere down the road these "athlete" companies incorporating a list of prohibited activities into their riders' contracts, similar to what goes on in the mlb/nba/nfl. i remember when andrew bynum blew out his knee while bowling, and people got pissed saying that this guy shouldn't be doing any activities that could compromise his health during the season. i could see red bull telling their dudes like hey, no doing six foot pole jams during the sls season. at the end of the day, it is skateboarding, and they are professional skateboaders, but i could see the suits thinking that a lot of the unsavory antics that go down on kotr aren't great for that mainstream, sls audience they're trying to reach. but then i was thinking, maybe they are backing it, in the sense that it could add to these dudes' "street cred."

Andy Roy is the most obnoxious person in skateboarding.

Evan Smith is a very, very weird dude.

Why was Ninejah wearing dirtbike gloves the entire time?

Sinclair seems like a douche.

Some kid who worked at Target didn’t know what one was either.  I was shocked


I was ready to tsk the wedding thing as being “gay is funny”, but it seemed like it was there to connect to Reno and the editing was sincere so I was relieved.   

Weird that Burnett acted like he was surprised to find out Sinclair TMed Foundation too. 

I don’t think JBrock will do much for Real.  They’ve shied away from challenges for the non-skaters in recent years

Post by: Jud Nestorkins on July 02, 2018, 01:04:08 AM
So I already thought that Evan Smith was one of the GOATs but now I love him even more. That rattle snake polejam thing was INSANE!

Also, the I know the editing was corny and it's made for non-skaters to enjoy too but come on. Nyjah has put of some of the best street parts ever and he's still "the contest guy", Evan is simply, "just the weird dude", all they act like the only thing Madars brings to the table is being foreign?

Holy shit, those Malmö kids rip better than McCrank in his prime and no one knows who he is, bet that made him uncomfortable for sure.
Nah, McCrank seems to have zero ego, he’s as down to earth as it gets. Also, McCrank in his prime is one of the greatest ever, so nah to that too
Canada link anyone?

I watched it straight from the Viceland website and I'm in Finland, so I'd assume it works in Canada too.

Pretty sure he's still trying to get SOTY. He's already had a thrasher cover and put out that ridiculous nike part and the element video is dropping this year so he'll probably have another cover that month. Winning kotr would be another cover he's in. This could be his year now that Nike is behind him.

My family and I were coincidentally in Philadelphia when they had the X Games where they blocked off part of downtown for the “street” competition.  My sister squeezes to the front row and Rick McCrank stopped warming up and said hi to my sister and told her how cool it was to see girls interested in skating.

nyjah isn't doing anything but neither did madras (sp) in this episode. didn't nyjah get buck last time with the kickflip a set to land on another board, i think he'll definitely come through but i'm sure he's going to contribute things that are big points but low risk for him, big rail stuff.

episode was great. love the show. don't get the evan hate, he's exactly how i'd expected he would be. he's got that cardiel type stoke going and is going to get some points and\or take a slam on every challenge.

Hard to cheer for Element when they have Nyjah trying to win skateboarding, but Evan Smith is amazing, and Mason is quickly becoming one of my favorites of the new up and comes.

Nick Merlino is something else.

I disagree with Real not having any personality, although the clips aren't showing it. Chima is always one of my favorite interviews.

It was also annoying that the Element edit featured Mason killing it, then switched to talking about how sick Evan Smith was towards the end, but that's what's called the MVP Edit.

Pretty sure they said Aidan Campbell had offers to ride for a better paying board company but stuck it out with Foundation.

Thought board companies didn't pay shit? Truth to the statement or just for the show? Can a euro tm weigh in?

I'm sure if he went to a "cooler" board company it would be easier for him to land a shoe deal, so maybe that's what they meant.

He had the best part in the Etnies video.

Nyjah cemented himself as someone I just can't like despite how good he is on a skateboard. Withholding judgement until the end but his performance isn't even gradable at this point since he hasn't done anything to help the team. I am also not opposed to skating with earbuds but on KOTR I'd assume the team vibe, which was coupled with TV cameras everywhere, would make you want to seem at least a little more team oriented.

Everyone complains about skateboarding being stale and not having enough weirdos. Then a genuine weirdo like Evan comes along, who is one of the best skaters around, and everyone just complains about him being too weird and gimmicky.

That whole mushroom argument is bullshit too. Gee, I wonder who else Slap idolizes that loved to eat mushrooms and do gnarly shit on a skateboard.

Mushrooms don't seem to impair skating like most intoxicants do. I'm much more impressed that Evan's been eating all that gross shit while tripping. I can barely stomach a saveloy when I'm in such a state.

Evan's psycho-babble reminded me of these geezers:

I think they dramatically reduced the travel when they put it on Vice to save on production costs. In the first 2 seasons on Vice, I'm pretty sure they have focused pretty much entirely on the Southwest going from basically West Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and Cali. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a surprise end trip like last year with Hawaii.

Quoted for truth. I never really paid any close attention to Cole Wilson but he fucking rips. So much so that this series had me checking on Cole's board at the shop. A couple of those dudes deserve way better.

People try way too hard to hate on Element but they are a tight ship. Great vibes, great skateboarders. They have some cool shit happening. Real's team vibe is really strange. Kyle Walker is such a next level ripper, I loved when he basically told Andy Roy to shut the hell up when he was about to put something gnarly down on that rail. But the overall team vibe feels so lifeless. Justin Brock is one dumb sonofabitch. I saw Ramondetta lurking at the Lower Bobs jam in this week's ep.

Foundation - go across SF with Phelps and do tricks on Cover Spots including one into a freeway, eat while bombing a hill

Madars is Euro Garth Algar

Dumb ass Burnett literally wearing a professors graduation robes (and orgy mask) for a medieval thing talking about Ragnarok to a bunch of knights.

Ohh right - the actual plague ones were like full face ones, but that’s def what they’re playing off of.   Regardless, it’s still probably 500 years off the time of knights. 

Cool to know about the Chavez spot.  That photo looked pretty sick (they all looked good).  Do you or any other SF guys know if that Cardiel rail is right outside Thrasher or something.  It seems like it’s been in every season so far

I hope someone else wins the 'grossest thing eaten' challenge because I'm tired of watching Evan Smith do anything other than skate in this show.

Wasn't Erick Winkowski supposed to be a mystery guest?

Evan Smith has been killing tricks all shroom'd out.

This week he did every challenge with 4 trucks, including a perfect kf crooks on a handrail and I think a back smith.

Then he back 3'd off that fucking dirt launch ramp first try.

No doubt he's a disgusting human, but he rips hard imo...

Yeah, though Even is cringey in so many ways he’s undeniably one of the best on a skateboard these days. I could smell that dogshit through my screen, so disgusting.

Merlino’s slow-mo’d Superman and Sinclair’s “I’m driving down a mountain right now” made me fucking LOL.

Agreed that Foundation are receiving the shitty end of city challenges, seems like there’s always one team every year that happens to.

why are people calling Foundation are underdogs, they have it easy:

Real - chill at a park you know and cook food
Element - have a pillow fight on a mini-ramp
Foundation - go across SF with Phelps and do tricks on Cover Spots including one into a freeway, eat while bombing a hill

Madars is Euro Garth Algar

Dumb ass Burnett literally wearing a professors graduation robes (and orgy mask) for a medieval thing talking about Ragnarok to a bunch of knights.   

What’s the point of winning the ability to pick a mystery guest first if you can’t tell anything about them?  Maybe if they stood closer and you could guess based off their shoes or something. 

Thank god we were spared even and jaws playing off each other, though I was bummed that Zion and Foy couldn’t be together

Its at Mckinley park at the top of Vermont st. on Potrero hill. Not right next to thrasher, but not too far either.
The rail is absolutely fucked. There’s like no runway. It is right near the Chavez bump though, so those back to back kind of make sense though.
It would be pretty amazing if “bomb vermont from the top, no foot drag” was a challenge. Not sure its ever been done. Hundreds of people bomb it on big wheels every Easter. Here’s a hilarious example of a person trying and failing to bomb it on a big wheel:

On a board you go much faster. I’ve made like 2 turns and always end up foot dragging after that. I’ve never heard of anybody doing it, though I bet it’s possible

I'm about to turn into my dad with the following comment: As brutal as Jaws' slam was, he is super lucky it only took out his teeth and not his nose. An impact like that straight up the nose probably would have gone to his brain and possibly killed him.

I know we have a Foundation thread but I'll post this here - these dudes deserve better. I'd love it if they were all poached by companies that could treat them better. It was kind of messed up of Sinclair to make Merlino hill bomb in the diaper, then claimed he never had to do it after he turned his ass cheek into hamburger. I get "pranking" your teammate but that was shitty.

And Element are gnarly. To a man, they are all gnarly and I am guessing they take it all. Adding Foy and his work ethic to that squad almost doesn't even seem fair.

Real continues to be an absolute snoozefest. It's astonishing to me how worthless Justin Brock is. As a "team manager", as an adult, or in any human capacity. He's not a motivator, isn't particularly smart, and has a hard time reading and interpreting basic instructions.

The episode is available on the vice website as well as other websites for those outside the US. In the preview for the next episode they show him getting x-rays and a CAT scan and the dudes on real are saying they don't wanna just leave him in the hospital by himself but they'll probably have to. Jaws has talked about doing that drop before and said that's the highest he could go. You gotta respect the dude for going all out but he could've easily won the award for the biggest drop by doing something smaller.

I'm super stoked on foundation and I think good things will come out of this. Nobody is getting poached, those dudes love each other and are proud to be on foundation. Their loyalty is awesome.

It's extra gnarly bc it looks like he pushed back his entire lower jaw line. It's intense. And the look on his face immediately after it happened was one of confusion, he knew he was significantly injured. You could see it in his eyes.

Evan's skating is truly in a realm of its own, and while he seems a little kooky on camera, I'm sure he'd be a good time in real life. People who are hyped-up and uninhibited always seem a little cringe in footage but are usually the best people to be around in person.

Mike Sinclair and Nick Merlino need a reality show

They're like a deconstruction of how stupid and arbitrary the whole KOTR thing is, except unintentionally coming up with better challenges/television than Burnett actually puts the effort into doing
Haha, so true. I can't wait for the payoff where they tell him these challenges were fake. Unless he legit can't read (I'm not ruling this out), I don't know how he hasn't even looked at the book to see these crossed off.

If I could skate like Evan I would probably be super giddy too.

I am somehow convinced that both Dylan. and Austyn named their dog Walter. Could be some Berenstain type of effect.

Aaron Homoki's nickname finally makes sense. Must've kept him off the mouth harp for a while.

Madars Apse sounds like an alien trying to do an impression of a human to blend in.


i had to bring this post in from another thread.  in the best way possible this dude is just simply an alien doing a human impression. he is so genuinely funny (in an intentional way). if hes not skating in the Olympics-- which is he aptly qualified to do, they gotta put him in the commentator room next to Rowley. his observations and ways of explaining things crack me up.

vice has gotten progressively less fact based and more millenial opinions passed off as news. shane smith was a serious journalist and 5-10 yrs ago vice was possibly the best news source in the world but gavin left about 10 yrs ago and i have theory.
i think he and shane have a gentleman's agreement to split america into a left and right wing, kind of how colbert and john stewart did for a period.
gavin left vice w/ lots of money and a NDA so who knows? maybe it's a legit beef and he thinks 'i started hipsters, i'll make the right wing cool next. i'm king of promotion. and its possible shane is drinking too much, not into quality control but it sure seems like they're canadian mirrors of each other, pushing their agendas on the states. they wield an inordinate amount of influence on us for sure.
maybe john candy and michael moore had the right idea.

Mmm pretty sure (absolutely positive) Colbert wasn’t there for the red state crowd but was a satire of the opinion based tv shows on Fox News.  This is obvious. 

Vice’s HBO news show is legit journalism and probably some of the best stuff they’ve done.  Viceland has documentary series that are legit, but a lot of their programming is tedious millennial bait, which is why Disney and FOX are big investors in Vice, because that is a coveted demographic.

I think it was pretty cool. I just think it's funny how much the pros were hyping up what they were doing in the interviews, then when it cut to him he appeared completely indifferent to what was going on. (Though he was probably just shy.)

i hated that good deed part so much.  When evan got out of the van and instead of "hey we wanna skate with you" said "we want to put on a demo for you" i was already over it, and then putting like 4 or 5 different cuts of the team saying "dude I would be so stoked if this happened when I was a kid, wow"  I see where their heads were at and it was cool of them, but maybe just evan smith and the reality tv aspect of it made it so cringe.

The Chief being concerned about the team doing the triples for no points and wasting time and then proceeding to waste everyones time with his 180 nosegrind for no points was hilarious. The team seemed a little bummed on that for sure.

Also, Dakota saying it's a dream of his to give a girl road head made me laugh out loud.

Let's not forget that the 180 nosegrind was on a 7 stair. Ultimate waste of time.

Not only that, but one of the smallest 7 stairs ever

I love how he got called out for that.

Jack Olson is savage.

Great episode this week made even better by not a single second of screen time given to Andy Roy.

Agreed with the posts above about Element. People can hate on the brand all they want but that's a crew of straight up workhorse. When it's time to work, they get after it. Putting Jamie Foy with them is almost unfair. I think Nyjah was hurt because he had a visible limp I think from sacking a rail the previous week. And I'm not trying to be contrary but I don't get the Nyjah hate, even a little bit. He's a rockstar. I could do without Mason Silva's spaz outs but they all rip and IMO they're going to be tough to beat. And my love for the Foundation crew grows exponentially by the week. Not sure if there is a more likable group in all of skateboarding.

It still bums me out Merlino wrecked himself on that diapered hill bomb. I get hazing your buddies and pranking them but that was completely unnecessary. Then Sinclair tried to say he never said he had to do it. Merlino is going to be pissed when they do the recaps at the end and he sees how much they've been fucking with him.

I don't think that hill bomb and ass rash is a big deal to Merlino like it is to most people. Those guys are perma-drunk ding dongs rolling around in filth for nickels all day anyway. Dakota Servold is one of the most responsible people in that van after all. Merlino is a stray dog that gets hit by a car and as long as it doesn't die, it's fine.

EDIT Damn also saw that he did a front 5050 on that long kinker rail for his ender in the Fun video. Jaime Foy did that in the same episode I think. Who at Thrasher hates this dude?

I think Jamie Foy did it in last the last season, but I’m pretty sure he popped out early. Not to take anything away from Foy, that’s a fucked up rail and he skated it on a whim one day during KOTR, which is really sick. But Elmendorfs Sheckler costume fit fitty finale is one of the craziest Enders nobody ever talks about

Not sure if that counts as a "varial" trick though since isn't anything varial technically done when your hand spins the board around? Pretty sure that's what Roger Bagley said at one point. Maybe that'll come up later when tallying the points.

What's up with the amount of shitting challenges? Let's cut some of those out next year please.

Also, it was weird that Lizzie was just lurking in the background waving the streamers at the Oceanside skatepark in their group, but they never really showed her or had her say anything. Just a random observation.

Nyjah is the only one who has the guts to dress like a douche.

When Nora was announced, I thought it would be somewhat interesting. But no.
Conversation that might've happened but probably didn't;
Burnett to Nora:
"I heard you like skateboarding and that's adorable. But we were thinking more, like manicure, karaoke, you know. Girl stuff."

I could go on and on about this shit but some fucking kids are playing on my lawn.

Burnett called that huge rail the Elmendorf rail in the most recent episode so that was cool. Also Thrasher had one of their little KOTR snippets up this week talking about how KWalks ollied the Dompierre gap.

I'm bummed there's more contest spread out to next week. Not that I don't wanna see more skating but I liked the old season and a finale held at a later date structure. That seemed to work fine for the past two seasons even if the finales are usually kind of a shit show.

Nope. Skateboarder mag had a “15 things you don’t know about the wedge” article and it said its a common misconception, but that was another spot or something.


Alright, here’s a bit of controversy I wanna sell: at that little rail where both teams put down wood on the woodchips for a run way: when real and element were there they extended the wood runway over the first stair with boards supporting it, even adding a little bump. That makes the rail shorter in length and height, and comes off as cheap and corny. I get a runway over woodchips, but when you start using the wood run up to shrink the rail its a step too far.
When foundation skated the rail, they didn’t extend the wood over the stairs.

I'm pretty sure Randy Colvin did it back in the early to mid 90s pushing mongo.

Dakota Servold actually talks about stuff like this in his Thrasher interview this month. Like if you're not at least touching some concrete, it doesn't count. Apparently, he's the wood guy for spots so I'd imagine he set up those up.

The rails that Foundation and Real/Element skated for the nosegrind nollie flip were different. Foundation skated a 6 stair that had a weird double top stair hence the roll up. The other teams skated an 8 stair with a kicker at the top.

It must suck getting to the end of KOTR and think that it might be worth it if they get to go somewhere cool like Hawaii like last season and then find out all you have is a flaming rail and the big points awarded are for tricks down the stairs

I heard Burnett had to shoot this at night because during the day he’s managing Reel Big Fish

Favorite moment of the year - watching the emotions as every skater imagines what it’s like to be Zion and hear their father tell them that he’s proud and loves his son

I’d like to see Eric Andre play Andy Roy

Another point against Evan smith - the guy who’s basically eaten every turd he could find though couldn’t imagine eating cake. Can’t wait until he grows out of being skateboarding’s Miley Cyrus (flaming lips stage)

Nick Sr didn’t come across as so Don Rickles last time we saw him

Glad they did something for Nick

Fucked up Tyson went pro after they got married and before they divorced.  Even more fucked up was Thrasher giving that award to Tyson over Cole just as an excuse to give him a pro platform.  Wonder if those were the points that gave them the edge over Real.  Looks like that DLX handicap is no more

They really don’t seem to know how to wrap up the season with this show. 3 years in a row the finale is all over the place with everyone doing whatever they want. There’s no organization.

Andy and Phelps add absolutely nothing to the show.

Cole getting robbed for Tyson turning pro was fucked up and unnecessary. Clearly Element had won so they could have easily turned him pro when they were announced the winners similar to how Louie turned Jackson pro. I seriously felt bummed on that moment.

It was a great season, but a weak finale.

KOTR sucked this year. Thrasher needs to rethink the whole thing if they're just going to rely on novelty tricks, eating shit and celebrity cameos to keep it "interesting."

Thought it was funny Justin Brock said "at least we're not third," than Real lost by a mere 180 points. I'd rather come in third and lose by a huge margin than just miss winning by a single challenge.

For the most part I thought it was an entertaining season but cringeworthy finale. Definitely hyped for Element and Foundation and will buy Cole or Glick's board soon. Real couldn't be more boring, collectively. Some rad dudes individually but their team was boring as shit. Maybe if they had Buz or Ishod in the van it would've spiced things up. It was edited poorly too because the way they showed it there was no way Foundation was at 9000 points to Real's 11,000.

And if I never see Andy Roy's dumb face again in my life it will be too soon.

Another season finale that's a hot mess. That's not even a judgement anymore. All 3 of the Viceland finales have been different but uniquely fucked. I seriously don't know why this is so hard? Keep it mellow for the taping and then go hard at the afterparty.

It's absolute bullshit that Cole didn't get the award for the rock fakie on the handrail so that Tyson Peterson's pro announcement could be set up. That was covered pretty well by Thrasher back in June so somebody double dipped hard. Looking at the photos, you can even tell it's the same night.

Honestly, I think Sinclair might have done Nick Merlino a weird huge favor pranking him so hard. I never really thought about Merlino before this but he turned out to be one of my favorite parts of this season. His reaction to winning the poker table was adorable. So was stopping everything so he could hug his dad.

I look forward to complaining with you all about the show next season.

I don’t know what’s contrived about it.  It’s a thing that happened.  I doubt they had a producer tell Jamie to do that because they want to fuck REAL of all teams regardless of the next 5-6 days of tricks/points.  We almost made it an entire season without some using this weird excuse

Remember when KOTR was mainly about doing fucked up tricks with a couple challenges chucked in there? Pepperidge Farm remembers. I highly doubt people prefer seeing people regurgitating into each others mouths rather than a fakie heel over a spine.

Regardless, Foundation are definitely the peoples champs. Next board for sure. Also, just a theory, Element was set up to win so they could have some extra gnar points once the Element video drops on Thrasher.

Hmmm do I think hyper-competitive/hates to lose Jamie Thomas refused to give up and not land a trick he should have in the bag or do I think Burnett called him and and told him to purposely not land a trick and keep not landing it for what, like 20 minutes, in the hopes that the point totals would be so razor thin at the end of the competition that it would fuck over Thrasher’s second favorite board company in favor of Element.     All the post-trip awards (phelpers choice, best transition trick, etc) is where they can actually affect point totals, not some weird manufactured event like this.     The whole reason the Jamie Thomas thing was even shown was for the juxtaposition with him talking at Rincon about how he’d never waste time on KOTR.  If he hadn’t said that, I doubt it’d have even been included in the edit.  Kinda like all the mileage they got out of Sinclair asking Merlino why he bombed the hill when he clearly told him to

Or we are arguing about two different things based off your use of “contrived”.  Obviously this isn’t some cinema verite documentary, it’s a reality show competition and they have set up things to be the focus of each day/episode.  I just don’t think everything is inherently contrived just because it’s on tv.  Vice doesn’t have the same knowhow or resources to do a Bachelor type con job and certainly no one in Thrasher is smart enough to put together that level of Truman Show fuckery.

regardless, i wanted foundation to take it but i'm glad element won instead of real. never thought i'd say that but, the dryness of the team's vibe together was killing me the whole season.

also, why so much evan hate? i get it that he can be hard to listen to but he seems very positive, always smiling and laughing and skating harder than anyone else.. honestly it's just another slap trend. same as saying "my next board is a foundation for sure" when maybe one of you will actually go buy a board and support them and the other 99 percent will just buy another board from a smaller/newer brand. not that there's anything wrong with that but, quit fronting.

The other teams were able to get jackass' "stars" too, but yeah that seemed pretty tailored to element. They showed it in the webisodes. I think real got Dave England (who did some neat handplant thing in a little backyard diy bowl), and foundation got Chris Pontius (Chris and Cole bathed each other nude in a fountain).

Also when they were naming the MVPs from the different teams, did Robbie Brockel get the team MVP for real? I thought that for sure would of been Zion.  I found Robbie pretty entertaining the whole show. I like that he wore that wig throughout the entire thing.

HEY GUYS LOOK AT ME!!!") and Jake Phelps is as dumb as a fucking caveman.

Rock to fakie on a handrail was the best trick filmed during the whole thing. Nick Merlino/Mike Sinclair were the stars of the show and I'd actually love it if they took over in the Andy Roy "hypeman" position next year but they would be like this bickering couple, that would work well I think.

they should get wheatberry to do the intro w/ the 'bad language' now that vice bought andy new jibs.
maybe kotr can be rehab for old pros to dress as a troll and be the jester but ultimately get their medical issues fixed.
andy roy should move into phelper's spot.
idk who should be on deck if wheatberry gets into legal trouble or dies unexpectedly.

Foundation got robbed and I'll def give those dudes hugs if I ever see them.

Has anybody mentioned that episode where Justin Brock read "KOTR" out loud like "coater"? Even worse than everybody screaming "SOTY" like it's a word.

Nah, he's always been like that even before he was sponsored. If anything he needs a ritalin or vyvanse prescription but he doesn't fuck with that shit. When he was coming up, filmers and photographers put up with his shit, always picked him up, paid for his food, etc 'cause he was that fuckin good.

He could've been pro for Baker, had a shoe on globe and making a good living but he is who he is and and I love him for it. He belongs on foundation with his best friends and Sinclair. He also got tons of exposure from the vice show so people are gonna be recognising him on the sreets/while he drives Uber/works at a grocery store a whole lot more.

Do you know any details about why he didn't get on Baker? The rumor that got spread was that Braydon was jealous of him, so he blackballed him. I'm sure Nick was especially wild back then too though.

He's probably too big a personality to fall in line to the degree necessary to join one of those "family" teams. Nick's gotta be Nick.

What's this about him and Globe? I know he's been in the game for a long time but I've only been paying attention since the Dekline video.

Element may have won, but Foundation won.

I saw a Corey Click board at the park yesterday and I haven't seen a Foundation board anywhere in nearly a decade. Between Oddity, KOTR, their new video dropping soon, and Cole Wilson innovating handrails, Foundation is suddenly more relevant than Toy Machine for the first time since Welcome to Hell.

Some other closing thought... the same as everybody else's. Phelps sucks and I won't be sad when he dies in a few years. The only Real riders I care for now are Ishod and Buzenitz. Evan Smith seems annoying as hell but dear god he is gifted on a skateboard. Jaws is kinda getting annoying. Foy is a monster. Axel was surprisingly effective as a guest rider. I'm glad they dropped all the make-out bullshit but the obsession with shit and other gross-out stunts has got to go. All in all a pretty good season.

Vice should start making new One In A Million seasons.

Like most people, would have loved to seen foundation win, after seeing the guys on KOTR, i definitley have alot more love for foundation now, hell i would even get a Cole wilson deck. I always liked him but didnt know much about the rest of the team, im sold now for sure. Glad Element took it over Real, Reals just boring as shit, Robbie may be one of the blanded most annoying people ive ever seen on KOTR, he irritated me all season.
Phelps continues to make himself look more and more like a kook every chance he gets, screaming SKATE RATS FOR LIFE, in evans face was just embarrassing.

He's wayyy more mellow now. Back then his ADHD was crazy and he was more energetic and manic which made him impossible to deal even though his skating was too good to ignore.

Why he didn't get on Baker: they were on a trip to Australia and he annoyed/rubbed some of the dudes the wrong way (that trip was gonna determine if they were gonna put him fully on) the final deal breaker was:

They were at a bar and Leo was sitting with Heath and at some point during the night he goes up to Leo being super stoked and nice and Leo just slapped him in the face and then I think I think he wandered off for a bit (being super bummed and mad about the incident) went back up to Leo and legit smacked him the face.

I'm still coming down from mescaline so I'm remembering like 6 different versions of of what happened that night in the bar.

What I know for sure was that he came up to Leo  being super hyped on him and Leo slapped him in the face and and Nick slapped him harder. Really shittyt spot to be in (do I let my favorite pro just slap me and disrespect me like that for a better chance of getting on?) but Nick couldn't let that slide so Leo got all offended and some drama happened and that was it for him (don't remember if Leo or someone else actually told him on the spot that he was never getting.

Evan deserved MVP obviously but fuck that fucking cover. That Cover tells me that Thrasher is more into the Circus part of KOTR than the skateboarding part.

Merlino is such a good skateboarding-Rocky story. East coast Italian, who never won the big match, but stayed in the ring all 15 rounds.

Yung Weck appearance at :45.
pretty sure rocky wins in every movie except the first one

As Creed tells us, rocky lost 2 of 3 to apollo
Yeah, but Rocky single-handedly ended communism. At least to how I recollect history after watching Rocky IV.

Wait until Drago’s son returns in Creed 2.  Hopefully he doesn’t kill Rocky in this

There's like a 0% chance that he doesn't have an Adderall prescription that he snorts, right?

Nah, he's always been like that even before he was sponsored. If anything he needs a ritalin or vyvanse prescription but he doesn't fuck with that shit. When he was coming up, filmers and photographers put up with his shit, always picked him up, paid for his food, etc 'cause he was that fuckin good.

He could've been pro for Baker, had a shoe on globe and making a good living but he is who he is and and I love him for it. He belongs on foundation with his best friends and Sinclair. He also got tons of exposure from the vice show so people are gonna be recognising him on the sreets/while he drives Uber/works at a grocery store a whole lot more.

That's good he's sober, really.

Do you know any details about why he didn't get on Baker? The rumor that got spread was that Braydon was jealous of him, so he blackballed him. I'm sure Nick was especially wild back then too though.

He's wayyy more mellow now. Back then his ADHD was crazy and he was more energetic and manic which made him impossible to deal even though his skating was too good to ignore.

Why he didn't get on Baker: they were on a trip to Australia and he annoyed/rubbed some of the dudes the wrong way (that trip was gonna determine if they were gonna put him fully on) the final deal breaker was:

They were at a bar and Leo was sitting with Heath and at some point during the night he goes up to Leo being super stoked and nice and Leo just slapped him in the face and then I think I think he wandered off for a bit (being super bummed and mad about the incident) went back up to Leo and legit smacked him the face.

I'm still coming down from mescaline so I'm remembering like 6 different versions of of what happened that night in the bar.

What I know for sure was that he came up to Leo  being super hyped on him and Leo slapped him in the face and and Nick slapped him harder. Really shittyt spot to be in (do I let my favorite pro just slap me and disrespect me like that for a better chance of getting on?) but Nick couldn't let that slide so Leo got all offended and some drama happened and that was it for him (don't remember if Leo or someone else actually told him on the spot that he was never getting.

Do you know if that Baker stuff had anything to with the rumor that all of his crazy footage at the time got leaked in that Tactical video without his knowledge? I remember rumors that there were at least a few clips Beagle filmed and gave up without Nicks knowledge or permission? I just remember how heavy that part was and hearing that Nick wasn’t pleased about all of the footage he’d been stacking going to that video, I could be wrong, just stuff I remember hearing at the time.

And his WTF part was and still is really, really fucked up, that was easily one of the craziest video parts of that year

Edit: found the tactical 2 footage. Sw Heel Wilshire @0:31, video part starts @1:55. I had forgotten how gnarly and amazing this part is, I hadn’t seen it in a long time, he truly was/is one of the best out. Who knows what could have happened at the time had this footage been released under different circumstances in a more mainstream video, dude was definitely making waves in the industry

<iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/33662906" width="640" height="432" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I 100% forgot about that part, probably 100% because it was not in a more mainstream video. Fuck man, Merlino deserves better. That little fucker gets gnarly. Switch back 3's don't make sense.

I remember when this first came out, such a heavy part. Him and that Donovan song were such a perfect match. Its a better fit than when Stevie Perez used it.

Crazy stuff. I had never heard this story, seen this part or even really knew he was flow from Baker.
When I read the talk of switch bs 360 I instantly thought yeah right. No way he could do that but in the Tactical part he does it down the red 14 stair. Nollie flip crooks Wilshire 10 rail is perfect too!
To think, if he hadn't of fucked things up with Baker he could be in a similar position to Figgy or someone similar, chilling with a shoe on Emerica. Instead he's on Foundation barely getting paid and probably doesn't have a shoe sponsor.

I've written off Foundation for a good while but they killed it on KOTR and were by far the most likable team. Will be paying much attention in the future

Of course he couldn't be on baker. His hammers are way heavier than one of their most notable riders who skates very similarly. They were probably salty.

When all the Merlino baker shit went down didn’t skateboard mag publish an “I’m sorry/  give me one more chance” article?  Think it was like a one page thing, that was Swahili ago though. I’m sure nicks annoying, especially then, but isn’t that what makes a fun crew, different types of people.

nick choked out marquise preston on a foundation trip one time. thrasher interview said it got heated and the last words were, "Are we doing this?" before apparantly nick dropped him. unrelated note, i think andrew langi stole his laptop one time haha. back before he lost all his sponsors and there was some back and forth between them over it.
