Seems like Choco wouldn't be a bad fit for Javi... He needs to be hooked up proper though no two ways about. Seems like he'd fit in over at DNA as well, maybe Habitat?

i cant believe people are still on thier nuts

they are far from what they used to be

and have gotten so caught up in thier legacy that

they have abandoned what they stood for

their on some straight emo bullshit

howard dont even skate to soul music no mo

carroll wears pink shoelaces

yeah i kinda agree with sheff.......i mean i dont think they should put on a black guy just for the sake of having another black guy
but when chocolate started it was all different races and backgrounds and was tight........still tight but it was like shamil, paulo, keenan, chico, daniel, richard, gabriel.....were there even any white guys on the team when it started?? ohh yeah york but anyways now its all spanish and white with the token black guy.....

You aren't allowed to talk about anything girl/choco related. You just called them a bunch of non-progressing 30+ year old dudes that can only do switch ups. So, you obviously just have no taste.

And Sheff in the choco tour 2003 they make fun of the fact that magazines called them a multicultural team, they were just skating with their friends, not trying to do some "we are the world"  shit.  Sometimes in big cities like LA, you see people hang out with people of all different races, not because they are trying to prove a point, just because there is a lot of diversity

Are you really so poorly educated that this is how you really type? Or are you just further perpetuating the stereotype that a staggering number of young, black americans are illiterate? I guess it's cool to act dumb. And as a previous poster said, Chocolate was only diverse at first because that's just the way it happened to be. LA is a multicultural melting-pot.

i dont know why folks here are so into lem vanilla or whatever. everyone's always complaining about mikemo and prod "robot" styles but this guy gets the free pass? i think it may have something to do with adidas
I think people dropped the Mikemo hate after FF dropped, and saying Paul is boring is just an excuse to find something wrong with a prodigy.
For the record, I like all three.

And Seth "munchy" Binzer isn't in crazytown, he IS crazytown.

lem is boring as is mike mo.   mike mo fully flared part reinforced the fact that his skating is boring.......he had one creative/unexpected trick and they used it for his last one......id rather just skip to pops part and then rewind about twenty seconds than sit through all those double set nollie heels...same thing with malto.....zzzzz

I guess that theres just so many different people skating putting out parts these days that you develop specific tastes for what you like and thats just not what I like.....all of his shit is just too perfect and expected and....generic

he really didnt do anything in there i found interesting at all. some rail feebles and nosegrinds, hardflips, inward heels, backtails. theres dozens of ams doing the same exact things. just because he's on adidas doesnt mean im going to like him. maybe some day i'll change my mind, who knows. but there was nothing unique or interesting about that, really.

ugh shutup theres just as many ams doing the crap you wanna see, its a part from some random puzzle video if you're gonna judge him on his lack of creativy and spot selection at least wait untill he has a new part.

yeah...there were a few sick things -- that pivoted-as-hell fs flip up a curb in a line was dope as fuck -- but he kinda has that "trying too hard to look effortless" snowboarder-y kinda style, and everything looks really, really pre-planned.  he looks like the kind of guy that wouldn't know spontaneity if it bit him in the ass.  doesn't seem very...chocolate-y.  a little too trick-obsessed and not very fun.

robotic has nothing to do with how you carry yourself.  It has to do with doing that same thing every time you do a trick.  Now I'm not going to examine every lem trick but he is definately not out of the ordinary.  Now lem may have a "loose" style but theres also tons of other ams that have loose styles.  The spontanious ones are the ones who stick out in my mine, like john motta.

I don't understand how it doesn't have anything to do with carrying yourself, since carrying yourself would have something to do with how you do your tricks. What I'm getting from your logic robotic could also include people like Chico and Jimmy Cao. Yes, under what you just said Chico would be classified as "robotic", but he's not so you're bullshitting so you can validate not liking Lem. Just say there's something about him you don't like.

i actually am kinda feeling mikemo, he's not one of my favorites but he kindof has his own bag of tricks, i normally do skip his lakai part but he had some really good ledge tricks, you know the ones im talking about. the rest of it was just every nollie trick down different sets. i just brought him up seeing as EVERYONE was hating on this dude about his robotic style, just as they do with prod

th elem dude is good i guess, i just am not feeling him; if he had unique tricks or a unique style it would be different, but he's lacking both. the only thing unique about him is that he's on adidas and thats why a lot of you are jocking him so hard

i dont know why folks here are so into lem vanilla or whatever. everyone's always complaining about mikemo and prod "robot" styles but this guy gets the free pass? i think it may have something to do with adidas
I think people dropped the Mikemo hate after FF dropped, and saying Paul is boring is just an excuse to find something wrong with a prodigy.
For the record, I like all three.


lem is boring as is mike mo.   mike mo fully flared part reinforced the fact that his skating is boring.......he had one creative/unexpected trick and they used it for his last one......id rather just skip to pops part and then rewind about twenty seconds than sit through all those double set nollie heels...same thing with malto.....zzzzz
For mike mo, his fakie switch front crook fakie 360 flip out didn't get you atleast a little bit? Like the way he catches it 270 and kinda rips it around the rest of the way? I don't think I;ve ever seen it done before either? I mean, never been done, executed well, but not in a robotic way, what could be to hate? Its one of my favorite tricks in the video. He;s got other good ones too. Plenty of 'em.

Fakie Switch Front Crook? I think you're making up tricks there...
ha! that does look pretty funny. fakie ollie to switch frontside crooked grind. Also known by friends of mine as "the chocolate trick" and "the ftc trick."

earlier in this thread when everyone was talking about Javier, I at first thought they were referring to Nunez.
I mean, he skates the Supreme bowl, no?
His section in the Shut promo was on point....

th elem dude is good i guess, i just am not feeling him; if he had unique tricks or a unique style it would be different, but he's lacking both. the only thing unique about him is that he's on adidas and thats why a lot of you are jocking him so hard

typical nollie feebs

from what ive seen, lem can do almost all the flip tricks regular and switch, do all the shuvit tricks regular and switch, do almost all the slides/grinds regular and switch. he also appears to be able to do most flips/shuvits into his grinds and slides, and then has the ability to take his flat tricks over gaps and stairs.

now that to me sounds like hes got his shit down.

how can you have a unique trick if you can already do them all.

you just said he could do tricks; what kind of fucking 12 year old explanation is that?

"im better because i can ollie a deck, ollie two decks, ollie a 4 stair, kickflip and 180 a stair..."

i dont give a fuck really, im not into him, i never said he wasnt good.

but seriously the more in-depth you guys get about him, the more boring you are seriously making him sound.

its not a fuckin math problem, i just dont like watching him

They're baked right on there with everything else and then covererd in mozzarella and drenched in Mama Alvino's special sauce. I may never eat pizza from anywhere else.

Can't wait to see more of this guy. He already rips.

its not all about the tricks, fucko, its also how you do them.

sean young ring a bell?

he didnt do too many unique tricks (except he did a no comply to fakie 50-50, so funny you mention that), he just did it going ballsy fast and had a cool vibe to his skateboarding.

also, im not riding for adidas or chocolate, nor am i riding for anyone; it isnt my job to get "unique"
