share it on your facebook page, help spread the word! it's gonna be a really good year.

we have more episodes coming soon- and lots of them. we got so much good stuff this year that rather than having one long episode per week we are going to break them up into several shorter ones than will end up being way longer in total. this first one may stay up longer as we get ahead on editing the rest, but starting soon there will be one coming several times a week!

At the very least you guys should hang out, Riverside's not that far.

Fuck it, after watching that I'm gonna have to go ahead and say that this guy is awesome.
Only way it would have been radder is if he had dropped the "I'm not here to make friends" line.

Honestly I hope this dude Forest gets in touch with reality. There are a bunch of amazing skaters that get nowhere because of their kookery and attitudes, hopefully the guys at slap took this into consideration when deciding the winner. As long as he doesn't win then I'm down for all the other guys pretty much. Mango seems rad, seems like a fun dude to skate with and kooky in a good way hahaha.

I think this dude's arrogance is the best thing about this whole deal.  I would get pretty fucking tired of all these cookie cutter happy go lucky fags talking about how they skate but train to be scientists at the same time.  Forrest Edwards seems like a jerk but whatever, so is Grant Taylor.  attitudes don't change the game.  His demeanor amuses me.

Arrogance is not the same as confidence at all. I took that Mango kid as confident. He's self depricating. You can't make fun of your weaknesses unless you are confident in your strengths.

You have it backwards. A lot of people confuse arrogance for confidence. A confident person wouldn't feel the need to tell people that his go to tricks "aren't that gay." We can figure it out on our own if its the truth. Also, the fake scowl speaks volumes about him. Not to mention that you are the only person who didn't see him as arrogant.

Also, that Gonzalo dude is good, and not to be too much of a dick, but do his eyes look really really close together to anybody else?

You're an idiot. Firstly i don't idolize anyone, secondly it doesn't matter because you're a 30 year old filmer that doesn't skate and dickrides little kids.

Probably thinks the other dudes tricks are gay. who knows, and we didn't hear what was asked. What if he asked if he does gay rail tricks. And I know the difference between confidence and arrogance. I would say most of the people that post on slap are way more arrogant than he is. You guys go around talking shit on people and acting like you're better than them all the time.

Ive been skating for 17 years, I don't go for it anymore but I can do some boardslides and kickflips and shit I'd be lying if I said I really went out and tried to learn new shit, I just don't have time. I work 50 hours a week am married and have a house with bills and shit. When I do get to go out and skate I have friends who wanna film stuff so we go do that. Usually I film and noone films me(I mean why would they) but here is 2 tricks of me skating at a park a year ago(at 0:32-0:38), I mean I'm not good, but I do skate so here is some proof. I think we are all still waiting to see footy of you.

Of course you wouldn't get it because you're a retarded california new gen who idolizes prod. but even paul isn't arrogant he is confident, so yes there is a huge difference.
You're an idiot. Firstly i don't idolize anyone, secondly it doesn't matter because you're a 30 year old filmer that doesn't skate and dickrides little kids.

I'm 26, and yes I'm a filmer but I mean you have to skate to film right? I mean I do.>>>

Ive been skating for 17 years, I don't go for it anymore but I can do some boardslides and kickflips and shit I'd be lying if I said I really went out and tried to learn new shit, I just don't have time. I work 50 hours a week am married and have a house with bills and shit. When I do get to go out and skate I have friends who wanna film stuff so we go do that. Usually I film and noone films me(I mean why would they) but here is 2 tricks of me skating at a park a year ago(at 0:32-0:38), I mean I'm not good, but I do skate so here is some proof. I think we are all still waiting to see footy of you.

I don't dickride little kids though? I'm fine at admitting my faults but this just isn't one of them.

You've mentioned many times about how you love P-Rod. You're very wrong if you're saying that this Forest kid isn't arrogant.
You've already lost by posting that. I have nothing more to say to you.

Hahaha you're such a little bitch COTG, you talk shit, I respond proving you wrong and you act like a pussy, post a few clips dude, just do it. Hahahaha

Also is everything about winning or losing? Maybe that's why you don't get skateboarding and back dudes like Forest Edwards. The other dudes went to OIAM just skate and have fun and try to get some tricks see what happens not for competition.

Not to be a drag, but rooting for anyone else but Forrest, Jon, or Reuben is kind of silly seeing as they announced them as the final three nearly 2 months ago. Not that I don't think they're all rad. So far I'm down for Jon, I like his attitude and variety the best.

You're fucking clueless, what do you mean beneath? No one needs to dickride anyone but there should be some level of respect. Forest has no respect for anyone and now its settled there is no more arguing or question about it the guy is an arrogant asshole.

I will say I feel like this was edited a little bit too much like a drama reality show.

I don't know who's board he was supposed to replace, obviously not Daryls right? I mean the guy gets unlimited boards but perhaps the other guys are given a certain amount of boards for the week or something.

No he's a dickrider, Look how much more emphasis he put on the fact daryl let him use his board. Rueben's lame, but he's 16 so he somewhat gets a pass for being a dickrider, but not really. And i just noticed that the main thing he made a big deal about was forrest saying the board was alright. Like a pro's board is supposed to be super magical or some gay shit. Kid's a faggot.

Darryl was being sarcastic because Forrest broke the board he lent him without saying sorry or thank you. Not exactly a humble guy.

"What's his name?"...Hahahaha I fucking lost it right there.

Glad they're going with the reality show style editing here, and I fucking HATE reality shows but this shit is just too entertaining.
Forrest knows what he's doing, can't wait to see more dick moves from him. PAUSE.

dude you are a straight mark. i don't think he was implying that his board would be amazing, he was making it known the fact that forrest didn't even say "thanks" or show any respect. your "dickriding" assumptions are being mistaken with reuben having a fucking conscience and manners.

Forrest reminds me of a fully grown Latarian Milton.
i was coming in here to post the exact same thing
to me he's the black kenny powers of skating, and it's fuckin awesome
Oh shit the black Kenny Powers!
How could I not have seen it sooner?
Consider yourself gnarred every day for the next week or so.

you guys can' really judge people after seeing them talk maybe once or twice, not talking to them in person but, listening to them talk on the internet....pretty dumb. the only thing that suprised me out of all of this is that he broke mark & daryl angel's boards & didn't say thank you..... but then again, what is really expected? think about how many main sports charaters there are in every sport that think they're the greatest thing ever. forrest is different then you guys because he didnt grow up being a rich kid & has been slept on as a skateboarder here for awhile. when i posted his sponser tape that my friend filmed, most people talked shit. now you like his skateboarding but, not his personality (without actually knowing him) if you're going to be so picky about skateboarding then why don't you just go pick up a different hobby instead of sitting on the internet all day saying what's wrong with skateboarding & who sucks... or go skateboard till your one of the dude's putting footage on this website & then talk shit. the point is forrest is awesome, he's a cool dude, has always been a cool dude and, no matter what, even if you dipshits don't like him, it does not matter because he will still make it in skateboarding & be one of the top dudes not too long from now so get over it or get used to it. & that one dude talking about how much of a dick forrest is in this last video is a total pussy, i liked his footage till i saw that, cool thing to do dude enter a contest & then have someone record you talking shit about the best dude in that shit.

It's disappointing to see they're editing this to emphasize the drama more than the skating. Obviously, Forrest broke five boards and apparently he was ungracious about the borrowed ones he snapped; but the SLAP people don't have to sensationalize it so much. It felt like I was watching reality TV. If I want that I can tune into half the garbage shows on TV, chocked full of constructed plot lines, untalented people flailing for attention, and stupid sound effects.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't the previous OIAM much more about the skating and felt more candid? Even if they're presenting it as it happened, seems like the he-said-she-said interviews (including a cliff-hanger comment from Mr. Daryl Angel himself that we're supposed to get all giddy for next episode) aren't necessary. I was way more psyched to see the ripping and the skaters complementing each other's efforts.

forrest is an idiot. he didn't even care to remember a guest pro's name, didn't bother thanking anyone for letting him use their boards let alone break them. also his go-to tricks are probably gay just on the basis that he claimed they weren't. but hey, reynolds eats fruit too so they're both practically fucking related.

Post by: whiteley on December 03, 2010, 12:07:20 AM
couple things:
1) i was not bummed at all that forrest broke my board. i was actually stoked that he took my board when i offered it and rode it until it broke WITHOUT complaining about how loose the trucks are. EVERYBODY who has ever touched my board thinks the trucks are crazy loose and complains (except nestor, we're on the same page), but forrest didn't- he just skated it. but anyhow, the breaking didn't bother me at all, and while i can't speak for daryl, i don't think it bothered him either- it was more that forrest never said thanks when the boards were offered or sorry when they were broken. he said nothing to me and was really whatever with daryl. just not the best vibe to start with at the first session of the week. i believe that's what reuben was speaking to, not that daryl's board was supposed to be magical.
2) the episodes are short. alex is still editing and we are figuring out how much to break them up. the reason we are doing them in short chunks is because we have learned by monitoring the way people watch past videos we've done (OIAM, pals questions, commentaries, etc) is that after about 7 minutes we start to lose people. this year we got SO much more footage for the contest than last year that to do each day as a single episode would mean they'd be like 15 minutes long, as that seemed like too much, so we're breaking them up. what we have done so far is to break each day of the finals week days up into three 5 +/- minute sections/episodes (so episode 2 was basically the first of three parts made from the events of the first day. the third part also includes a recap of the total day's events together during interviews we did at the end of every day). we may drop it to two 7-8+/- minute episodes for the later ones. so there will be a lot, but it's meant to be a steady stream of digestible chunks. keep you posted.

oh, and ^: i don't know if you consider jews to be "white" or not, but while i don't know his complete ethnic background, reuben is indeed the hebrew hammer!

i didn't tell you to explain yourself i told you to explain your nonsence. so you have a picture of dylan rieder breaking his board at a contest.. if it was just dylan focusing his board you wouldt make it your signature but, because it's a competition that makes it okay? or does it make him "cool" to not care about the contest itself? so in the same logic.. maybe forrest doesnt give a flying fuck about this "contest" because he is very obviously way ahead of most people.

i didn't tell you to explain yourself i told you to explain your nonsence. so you have a picture of dylan rieder breaking his board at a contest.. if it was just dylan focusing his board you wouldt make it your signature but, because it's a competition that makes it okay? or does it make him "cool" to not care about the contest itself? so in the same logic.. maybe forrest doesnt give a flying fuck about this "contest" because he is very obviously way ahead of most people.
lol you're reaching. forrest himself said that he only went to the contest to win, he didn't care about the experience or anything, so that clearly shows that he cares a fuckload about this contest. he also was bummed on the fact that he didn't do well, i'm pretty sure he wouldn't have cared that he blew it if he didn't care about the contest itself.

 You should be stoked he's even getting talked about. now you can ride his coat tails to win at skateboarding. Don't take it personal. If anything we can agree he adds some much needed personality to the nerdy PC dialog that the skating industry has been forced to portray. I quite like the way its edited too. Variety is not gay.

I might be wrong, but I thought Forrest was being sarcastic and making a mockery of the whole "i don't really care, just here to have fun" put on attitude of some people.  To me he looked like he was about to burst out laughing as soon as the camera stopped recording.  I found it hilarious.  Either way Forrest is fucking killing this shit.

you guys can' really judge people after seeing them talk maybe once or twice, not talking to them in person but, listening to them talk on the internet....pretty dumb. the only thing that suprised me out of all of this is that he broke mark & daryl angel's boards & didn't say thank you..... but then again, what is really expected? think about how many main sports charaters there are in every sport that think they're the greatest thing ever. forrest is different then you guys because he didnt grow up being a rich kid & has been slept on as a skateboarder here for awhile. when i posted his sponser tape that my friend filmed, most people talked shit. now you like his skateboarding but, not his personality (without actually knowing him) if you're going to be so picky about skateboarding then why don't you just go pick up a different hobby instead of sitting on the internet all day saying what's wrong with skateboarding & who sucks... or go skateboard till your one of the dude's putting footage on this website & then talk shit. the point is forrest is awesome, he's a cool dude, has always been a cool dude and, no matter what, even if you dipshits don't like him, it does not matter because he will still make it in skateboarding & be one of the top dudes not too long from now so get over it or get used to it. & that one dude talking about how much of a dick forrest is in this last video is a total pussy, i liked his footage till i saw that, cool thing to do dude enter a contest & then have someone record you talking shit about the best dude in that shit.

haha. People have this weird thing called opinions and your just gonna have to learn to accept that. Just like you should accept that your friend made an effort on camera to be a thankless pile of shit, nobody asked him to act that way and it's pointless to defend it.

He's actually been making sense from the start. You are the one blowing it.
yeah dude i'm blowing it by defending my friend. i just think it's funny that you guys are judging someone you don't know.... he's downriver.... if he wasn't in the contest he wouldn't pay any attention to it. i'm not saying he has no knowledge of skateboarding he obviously sent his footage to slap & knows that reynolds eats fruit.. (ha) but, my point is that he proabably doesn't think that many people watch the videos & doesn't really care what they think of him as a person, you can't deny his talent in skatebording.

& my point with the whole dylan rieder thing is that your signature is dylan focusing his board at the x-games. it's pretty much the same concept. noone made dylan enter thge x-games, he was offered to go, knew he could make some money & went. obviously didn't feel like he was doing good so he broke his own skateboard on purpose in front of millions of people atleast (including peole who watched on tv and people who were there) so thats thousands of little kids thinking that it's cool to just break your board if you're not doing good because, they see a "professional athlete" do it on t.v. or in person at a sporting event (the x-games). so cut to the chase, my obvious point is that everyone thinks forrest is a dick cause some shit that he says in a contest video. is it wrong to go into a contest hoping to win? is it wrong to know that a back 360 kickflip down a set of stairs or, a 360 flip 5050 down a circle handrail is "not gay" ? i mean, obviously he coud've worded himself differently but, he didn't because he's not you. if you're into variety, you should be able to accept people that are different. & he didn't focus his board during the contest, he broke it trying like trick 4 or 5, then someone offered him a board, it breaks, daryl offers his, it breaks.... who should be most bummed? the dude that has to go to work to buy skateboards or the dude that's probably skating his own skateboard?.. the dude that works for slap who can probaby get a board when he needs it?... or the dude that's in a contest far from home with a bunch of strangers & he just broke 3 boards  trying the same trick, one of them being his own brand new board. bottom line, if you invite someone to travel all the way upstate for a contest between him and like 5 other dudes to skate a bunch of spots together that you haven't even been to & have always wanted to go to... shit is probably overwhelming as fuck & if you really want to win you got to get into the conest mentally... sure everybody likes the modest,thankful guy more for his personality but, skateboarding is skateboarding. you can't just have the new generation of mainstream  skateboarders be "down to earth" flannel wearing smiley hispters just for doing the same fucking tricks over & over & being trendy as fuck.... shit get's old. forrest just has raw talent & will push skateboarding harder & harder. he progresses more & more & he will be one of the top dudes one day. the nba couldn't filled with soft spoken short dudes just because they're easier to get along with or relate to but, goddamn man the dude is fucking amazing & shits on all the other dudes obviously... no offence i watched everyone else's footage i liked them but, forrest is obviously the best. & i was joking with all the name-calling and cussing at you or anyone else i 'm not trying to change your opinion i'm jsut explaing mine

Just like you like Forrest and I understand and accept your point, you should be able to understand and accept that he comes across like an egotistic, unappreciative dick. The fact that he works so hard for his tricks and to get anywhere in skateboarding is admirable and if anything, he should be more appreciative of the opportunity SLAP and the OIAM contest gives him. He could try to make the best impression possible to these people in the industry, which is as simple as saying "Thanks for letting me use your board. Sorry I snapped it." And unless I'm missing something, don't the contestants get a couple boards for free? So he could probably go back to Double Rock and set up one of the boards that SLAP gave him for the week. Or use some of that $120 that SLAP gave him to buy a shop board at FTC. It's not like he needs to scrimp and save for a new board this week.

this episode is the middle part of the first day, after the golden gate park session, and it was a real good first day out. matty's nollie was definitely really sick, his style started coming out that day. john's f/s 180 the hard way over the rail was good, too, but his hill bomb to triple set ollie attempts were amazing. we talk about it more in the next episode, but trying that is crazy. having never skated sf hills before, to see that and just go for it was impressive. he only got those two tries at it before the cops came, if he'd had one or two more it might have happened. episode 4 will be coming really soon, should be wednesday, with the last part of the first day out and the end-of-the-day reviews with everybody in the contest! some great comments happen during those reviews...

Going that fast an ollieing up a curb is a trick in itself in my mind; that looked scurry.
When I was out in sf I tried bombing the hill and ollieing that same curb and clipped because I didn't judge it right. Rolled and skidded almost all the way to the stairs. But that's how I found out where kezar was.

Isn't Daryl a rumored asshole? He seemed pretty kind in the clips, lending a board and stopping traffic. But these dudes are doing really well in SF, all that shit is difficult to skate.

Post by: whiteley on December 06, 2010, 04:13:32 PM
i saw him trying the flip tricks into the hill a few times but didn't know he was coming down the whole street. he made one trick into the hill, came down and almost got hit because it's basically a blind intersection, and when i saw that i went out to stop traffic on the rest. nobody really knew he was gonna go for it until then. then he only got those two other tries. there's an angle shot from above that i want to use for something later that shows how long the set really is. super rugged to try.

sf state rail- not really at sf state, but right near it. behind a mall, leading into some apartments.

daryl- not an asshole, just a sarcastic grump in a good way.

Holy shit on that triple set attempt. Reuben is actually really sick, don't know what the hate is about. Matty Hunt's nollie was the best looking trick yet, though not necessarily the hardest.
Random logistical question: On that day you started at the de young garden in Golden Gate park, then went down, away from the park, to stonestown. After getting the boot from there you drove back to golden gate park and skated kezar, which is a mild push from de young. Why?

On second look, I'm hyped on that Fitzgerald kid. They're going around SF skating all these flat spots and he just can't wait to get charging down them hills. Don't care that he didn't land it, it was awesome that he went for it. Not to mention the fact the Whiteley just subtly pointed out that he wasn't like "hey, can you film me, I'm going to try to ollie the triple set," it seems like he just walked up the hill and went for it, which makes it twice as cool.
Oh, and Daryl remembered Forrest's name. Just saying.

we got cock-blocked on a lot of spots that day and drove around a ton, but i think part of the reason we headed back over there was to get a new board for daryl at the shop. i know we got one for him along the way, oh, and john broke his board on that heelflip down the three at kezar and was actually riding daryl's new board for a little while on the hill. so that's daryl loaning once more on the day- what a guy, huh?

On second look, I'm hyped on that Fitzgerald kid. They're going around SF skating all these flat spots and he just can't wait to get charging down them hills.

That is how it went, and john was nothing if not humble the whole time. good kid.

ramondetta did have that photo come out right before the contest week, although i don't know if he ollied up the curb. ollie is beast regardless.

as for matty, yeah, definitely consistent style point awards throughout the week. looking real good.

as for beards, i remember there was a full grown man in my 8th grade class who shaved every day. i, however, grew nothing until about 18, then fungus until maybe 21. i don't think it got really legit until another year or so after that. reuben is definitely bearded youth.

^ true in that light, but a person helping another person who they just met with no selfish motivation to do so is commendable regardless of the nature of their employment or socio-economic status. and while a board is certainly not hard to come by for a pro, i don't think daryl has 54 billion skateboards at his disposal- when do you think bill gates stopped to give two separate homeless guys a dollar in one afternoon?

Whiteley in episode one I have to say I was impressed how closely shaven you were. Electric or safety razor?

oh my, thank you. safety. mach 3, i back it. i had been staying in double rock with the guys several nights in a row, shaving in the bathroom at slap in the morning while everybody else was coming into work, they were kinda surprised to see somebody shaving in there.

I hope at the end of this, y'all will compile all the episodes into one video.

that's the plan.

Reuben's kickflip over that bump bar was dope.  I'm still trying to see that above angle of the triple set because that thing looks huge.

super hard to get at that thing, you gotta cut in and cut out before and after. nobody has ever flipped over it before, big ups to reuben. and yeah, hopefully that above angle on the triple set will find a home later.

The first trick he tried was a nollie noseslide on that rail? it seems like you guys are leaving tricks out.

to be honest i don't know if that was his first trick or not-- the rail session was happening at the same time as the bump to bar session and i was at the bump to bar around the corner. however, seeing how forrest operates at spots, i would not be surprised if he went right to that. he charges. but rest assured, we're not jacking anybody for their tricks.

The after-interview seems awkward too, not negative but what do they expect them to say?

first gap spot, gonzo crushed it, got the most tricks. reuben got a bunch, forrest got three, john got one trick, matty got one trick, nik and mango didn't really skate it.
second spot, over the rail into bank, john got one trick, matty got one trick, reuben sorta got one (sketchy manual), nik ate shit. forrest, mango and gonzo didn't really skate it.
third spot, kezar, mango got a trick, matty got a trick, forrrest got a trick, reuben got a couple, and john didn't get it but sure got some points on that ollie. gonzo and nik didn't.
last spot, reuben got the kickflip, gonzo got two, forrest got one.
so all in all, everybody got at least something the first day, aside from nik who got hurt. remember, this is just the first day, there's a whole week ahead. not everybody likes every spot, and with a whole week of all-day-ever-day skating in store, it's certainly advisable to save yourself a bit.

as for the interviews, again, this was the first day and nobody really knew what to expect. the interviews get a lot smoother and more interesting as the days go by.

That rail isn't low whatsoever. The little curb edging puts it at a normal handicap rail height. And there's barely a bump, that's a beast of a kickflip.

And fuck, whiteley I apologize for thinking Daryl was stopping traffic when it was you. That means you have a kind soul. Such a sweetheart.

yea, rueben is a faggot.

I'm not trying to get in an online debate with you, but you do realize everything doesn't have to be so black and white. You can still support your dude and acknowledge that other people are killing it, too. Just because you're backing Forrest doesn't mean a 16 year old kid who's super excited to skate and producing a bunch of great looking footage is a fag. Not hating, just saying.

Also, I just watched Forrests' sponsor me tape thats been floating around on SLAP. Dude kills it. Anyone have any links to any of the other finalists parts/edit tapes?

I'm 100% on team Mango. He won't win, but I'm backing the hell out of that kid. His testimonials are almost as funny as forrest's, but in a likable way.

Line of the episode was "meaning..."

And I fully agree with Whiteley's breakdown of John Fitzgerald. That kid was hitting the city the way it is meant to be skated with that ollie.

The first trick he tried was a nollie noseslide on that rail? it seems like you guys are leaving tricks out.

to be honest i don't know if that was his first trick or not-- the rail session was happening at the same time as the bump to bar session and i was at the bump to bar around the corner. however, seeing how forrest operates at spots, i would not be surprised if he went right to that. he charges. but rest assured, we're not jacking anybody for their tricks.

as far as average handrail rail height, that did look pretty low, but it was still pretty tall over all

i'd say the bump to bar is of average height, nothing crazy, but the bump itself being mellow and the cut in and cut out before and after add up to it being hard to get anything over. for a kickflip to be NBD on a spot that's been known for a decade says something (by the way, first footage of that spot was of reese forbes ollieing it, which also says something.)

and ^: gipper, they were happening at the same time, not right after the bump to bar. we had multiple filmers, which is how we have both tricks. but that said, anybody could have skated the bump to bar, we stopped to look at that first, not the rail, it's just that nobody but reuben had anything for it. and also, gipper i mean ronald, i know you'd approve of how john skated the hills. wait until you see what's coming at the end of the next episode...

as a side note, i just watched rough cuts for episodes 8, 9 and 10-- lots of great stuff coming soon. amazing skating, amazing comments, mango buying clothes off a homeless guy...

Fuck, no doubt... he was charging down that shit.

Too bad Forrest didn't at least make an attempt, especially considering this from #4:

Quote
Mark: At the Golden Gate fountain gap, the first one where you broke the boards and all that stuff, if you weren't into skating the spot how come you kept skating for so long?

Forrest: The competition! I can't just let them get ahead and me not keep up.
Granted, that was some pretty harsh tranny but he could at least have tried to go with an edger or something.

Also, Omar was on point when he compared Matty with Andrew Allen- I thought he reminded me of someone and that's who it was.

About the other dudes not getting things on the stairs... they at least skated shit rather than sit it out.

this episode made me officially hate forrest. he didn't even try to skate? fuck him.

yeah thats whay i thought, youre never gonna get ahead with that attitude.

just imagine if he went to skate a demo and was like "aah theres too much tranny in this park, fuck dat yo"
I don't think i've ever seen mike mo skate a demo. And if you're not used to something what's the point of skating it. no one said anything when those other dudes didn't get tricks on those stairs. and i'd be willing to bet money no one got a good ledge line at 3rd and army and no one is going to say anything about that.

this is mike mo skating a demo

I've skated that shit, and the shit he was doing was gnar as fuck. pretty much getting anything filmworthy is damn near impossible there. Even getting taken out, its going to be hard for any of them to leave a better impression on me skatewise. Still hyped on mango. Can't believe 2 dudes exist in the world like COTG.

I'd be willing to bet money you grew up with a skatepark. I don't think you guys realize skateparks everywhere are fairly new. There are a shitload of kids that started skating before the last 5 years who probably never skated/ are just getting into within the last 2 years. and honestly it doesn't matter to a lot of kids. if you asked a kid who's skills would you rather have mike mo's or tony t's,  i'd bet money that the overwhelming majority would choose mike mo.

"shit got real when whiteley just stood motionless watching john go straight for that curb at 30+ miles an hour.
there's no way that could have ended well."
-- if you watch, i move over a little while he's coming down that last stretch as i was hoping he might still try to make the turn and i wanted to catch him if he was gonna hit the car. i had no idea what was going to happen at that point. it didn't end well in terms of his scalp, but it ended very well in terms of john being extremely gnarly.

"Omar Hassan seems like fucking good guy."
-- having never really hung out with him much before, i was surprised at how cool he was. he says some great stuff in the next episode, too.

"i'd be willing to bet money no one got a good ledge line at 3rd and army and no one is going to say anything about that."
--i'm sure our definitions will be different on what makes for a "good" ledge line, but mango got a rad one, and some others got lines as well- including forrest...

"That's some medieval looking shit... obviously he's out of the game, but he gets a life gnar for risking his shit like that. Dude's made of gnar. Shit, with a gash like that I'm stoked he's alive!"
-- don't be so sure!

"will we get to see the slam unedited?"
-- bright and early monday morning!

"most people that skate realize most of the people that skate transition are over the age 30."
-- sorry to make an old guy reference, but have you ever seen the first plan b video? there's a miniramp section in the middle of it that was the peak of technical tranny skating at the time, maybe you can appreciate that. i don't think any of those guys could have been over 21 at that point, probably more like 18.

they asked him why he wasn't skating it, he offered his opinion. no one asked mango because no one cares what mango thinks. slap knew forrest's comments would be the highlights of the episodes, and so they're definitely putting more focus on him. dude didn't even skate the spot of the episode and still seemed to be more prominent in the episode than nik stain, who actually skated the spot. speaking of, a better comparison for someone not skating the street spots is nik stain, i forgot dude existed until this episode, he didn't do shit the whole first episode it seems.

All of these OIAM dudes are in a contest right now, correct?
You would think that all of them would try to skate as much as they could at every single spot that they get taken to regardless if they are "feeling it" or not, I mean sitting out while the others are trying to so shit is wack no matter if the spot is a ledge, stairs, gap, or tranny.

These fucking dudes are good and they should be able to handle at any spot Whiteley takes them to, I mean if they're trying to be "one in a million" they should be able to at least function on a little bit of everything its not like they have to be mind-blowing on everything but come on son, you're in the finals here, do something or at least try.

this still doesn't address soul skater mango or-like gomez pointed out-the non existent nik stain. basically these dudes have just started to get tricks into the 5th episode, while everyone, including forrest, has done something noteable within the first 3 or 4.

OIAM is a competition but it's still skateboarding and like i said, no one here can front like they never opted out of skating a spot cause they were'nt feeling it. it's OIAM not the dew tour-if a guy wants to sit out thats his perogative.

Not so.  This is a competition.  You're not feeling it?  Tough! You want to win?  You do what it takes.  You pussy out, you FAIL.  At least Mango's a good sport. Forrest is a punk.

I'm saying even if he would have skated, he would've got made fun of anyway, because he isn't good at it. and like it was said earlier, no one is making fun of nick and mango for being damn near non existent for 4 episodes. and like gomez said earlier, i guarantee he was the only one that was asked why he wasn't skating it.

who makes fun of people in real life, i thought that was only something people did on the internet.

People are making fun of him anyway. The reason everybody is hating on him is because he is an asshole. When an asshole does something lame, they get less sympathy then when a likable person does. There is nothing wrong with that either. It would be stupid if everytime somebody did something we pretended it was the first time they did anything, its just not how humans work. You spend the entire time talking about how its a competition and your the best and all that shit, then can't even roll through the spot, be prepared to be justifiably clowned.
And that shit about skating it when he gets old is just a crutch to make himself feel better about not actually being quite as awesome as he thinks he is.

come on man.  he doesn't skate one type of thing at all so he is lame?    definitely not true.  using our (and many others) favorite skateboarder as an example......I can guarantee you if the Real team rolled up to a big ass handrail Busenitz would not skate it...because he doesn't skate hand rails.  does that make him lame?  no.  the dude is one of the absolute rawest street skaters ever and he doesn't even skate rails.    gino also comes to mind, who said in the chocolate tour he doesn't skate rails.  that doesn't make him lame (at least during the trilogy and yeah right! eras).

if it's not your thing then it's not your thing....i don't understand why Slap berates people who don't skate transition but praise people who don't skate rails.  neither of those have any bearing on making someone a great skateboarder or not a great skateboarder.  apply the hate but do it evenly.

Your comparing something like handrails and transition, are you fucking retarded. Rails are scary, transition is mellow and fun, even if its your first time skating transition, its fun to learn and try. Do you think its fun to learn and try to skate a handrail? I doubt that forrest was scared of transition, if you want to compare it to handrails. He didnt want to skate it because he didnt want to look like he was bad at some attribute of skating, so he bitched out like a fuckin fag. Skating is fun, i think forrest needs to remember thats what skating is fun.

if you are trying to tell me that all transition is mellow and fun then you are completely delusional.    transition can be gnarly as fuck too.  although i do agree that transition is really fun.   i will be the first to admit i will skate an average rail before i try to skate some of that gnarly shit that grant taylor, tnt and cardiel skate

haha exactly. and you guys are making it seem like he sat out on a wooden mini-ramp session. i have fun skating transition  and i would've been hesitant to try to skate that tranny because i suck at it and i know i could easily injure myself trying. forrest would be retarded to force himself into skating something he doesn't want to and is terrible at for the sake of competition when he could end up injuring himself to where he can't skate the spots where he actually could get something good.

Remember Forest said he was out of his element. In other words he sucks at transition or doesn't skate it much, so why would he bother to skate some really tight transition? If he did, he wouldn't get anything to leave a good impression on the judges concerning his transition skills. If anything it would just tarnish his overall performance through out the week. He said he'll skate it when he's old, maybe he was talking shit, maybe that's his sense of humour or maybe it's a little A a little B. It's very understandable he gets more attention for not skating a spot because as Gipper pointed out, he is unliked by many here. It's human nature to aplly more negative energy towards something you dislike. But come on, he didn't skate something. Yeah he didn't even try, but so what. I"m sure he knows what he enjoys skating. Even if that means he ends up being less well rounded. You can't force someone to skate something they're not into even if that makes them a "pussy."

The second day seems like nothing but booty spots.

wait until the episode we go to santa cruz! you'll really hate it.
but, the last spot of the current day, which is shown on episode 7 coming wednesday, i think you will approve of whole-heartedly. forrest shuts it down in an unbelievable way, too.

as for forrest at the flower shop, i don't fault him for sitting it out. it is really hard to skate and from what i saw later in the week, no, he's not comfortable on tranny. i told all of them to conserve their energy-- it's a long-ass week of skating all day, and if you don't want to skate some spot we go to, save your energy for a spot you do want to skate. you'll have a better chance if getting something sick that way. i do agree it's best to skate everything, and i do agree it's weak to make statements like "i'll skate it when i get older", but i do think it's fine to sit it out if you don't like a spot.

I just hated how short this clip was! If they're going to be this well produced, make 'em a little longer please!

this is the shortest episode of the bunch.

as for john's head-- he took that beating like a champ. no drama, just got up, went to the hospital, had his health insurance in hand, made his phone calls, took all those staples to the head without a blink,  back in the van. man style. and yeah, that hill really was as burly as it looked, maybe burlier.

the smarter thing to do would have been to try to make the turn, which i could only assume he was planning on doing when he started in on it, totally true. but given the circumstance he got himself into, he took the ballsier way out-- he rode the hill out all the way to the flat, which makes it legit to me. he didn't jump off early, he didn't save himself the pain. he rode it out, and that does take balls.

forrest merked the whole episode with one trick.
john is now certified gnar for not bailing after that second powerslide. super-gnar.
mango's growing on me, but i need to see him rip harder. i liked the skitch.

forrest is killing shit, and his attitude ain't as bad as some cats i know. dude's just a little rough and not all friendly and shit. i'm aight with that actually. he could learn some basic manners, but maybe not, i don't care. that switch 180 NG was tall and proper. the cig was a little drehobl-esque and i liked that shit too. can't wait to see him really kill next ep.

fucking staba!! yes.

honestly him going down that hill doesn't mean he has balls. It means he's an idiot. Giving someone props for going down a hill that goes directly into a house is dumb as fuck.

but constantly defending a douche bag THAT YOU DONT EVEN KNOW is cool?

so Omar is "dumb as fuck", while forrest is cool?

man, you're an expert on judging character...
I'm not defending forrest. I'm pointing out how dumb you guys are.

its awesome how some people have the need to hate
dude said that it was one of funnest things hes done in life and the way he took the slam clearly shows that it wasnt some kinda of delusional move. it was all about balls and eager to show love for this shit

whatever, the episode was dope! mango is a fun dude to watch skate and if switch 180 5-0 was only a teaser for next epi, im looking forward to see forrests shit

also, if any of you paid attention to the livefromthestreets blog you would know that the final 3 boils down to Forrest, Reuben, and john i believe. funny how everyone hating on Forrest when they don't even know him.

You sound like you have the same Jock itch disease Gump has. Talent doesn't excuse someone for being asshole. Nobody said Gump isn't good. Yet you and his other nut sharks come in here trying to justify his personality with his talent. Son you need to get out more. Gumps are dime a dozen. Tricks don't make a skater.  Shit, if he was so damn good, why does he need to enter OIAM? Shouldn't he be pro by now? The logic just isn't there.

He'll get no where on just his talent. You and him are fools to think otherwise.

So he's a dick to everyone but his friends? That still qualifies him as an asshole. "He's super cool once you get to know him" usually just means that once you've become accustomed to his arrogant shithead exterior, his eventual lack of stand-offishness seems pretty "cool" in comparison.

And once again, nobody is really talking shit on what he does on his board, in fact, whenever he does a trick everyone says it's the best thing in the episode. It is possible to judge what people do on and off the board separately, however, the nature of the competition, with the whole skate camp atmosphere and the video cameras watching their every move, means that people are inevitably going to be judging them based on their character as well as their skill. I think everyone pretty much admits that he's the best skater there but it's equally obvious that he wouldn't be the best guy the spend a whole week hanging out and shredding with.

That's bullshit. Skateboarding isn't just about ability. Personality is a huge part of it. How many people have been screwed over and ostracized by the industry because they were assholes. It definitely should be taken into consideration-especially if SLAP is (somewhat) putting themselves on the line by tacitly backing the winner of every OIAM contest. I wouldn't want to be associated with someone who is an asshole or rude. Like earlygrab said before, there must be something that is stopping this guy from becoming pro from his talent alone and judging from how much this contest has helped people create skateboarding careers, not many people want to deal with a cocky guy just because he can do some good tricks.

That shit will be the gnarliest thing to go down in this contest, and yeah, I heard about that played out asshole doing a played out trick down one of the most played out spots in SF.

Oh, and those bench backs really aren't that high.

that hill bomb was seriously insane, and the fact that he didnt complain, went to the hospital and got back in the van makes him a top notch dude in my book.  

however

as crazy as that was, going down a hill really fast and crashing does not make you a great skateboarder.  saying he is amazing just because of that hill bomb is retarded, and he would probably say the same thing.   he is really good and i bet he would rather be remembered for doing  great tricks with good style than the guy who went fast and crashed.  that is just gravity.    not hating on him at all...only on people on slap.

actually only Slap would people rather be remembered for going fast and crashing than doing something that required all the skill acquired over years of skating and countless hours of learning.

I've seen that hill. Right next to the flowershop. Its pretty gnarly from where he is. If others could do it, the list would be very short. Hassan claiming its the fastest he's ever seen somebody go kinda confirms what I am saying, but whatever, you are retarded. Also, you see your homie Forrest trying to practice hill bombing in the episode where they skate the flowershop? He's going to have some trouble come hill time.
And Tyroneshoelaces, you're retarded. I came down on you hard for being seriously stupid, not because I was upset. I'm not flipping out over here.

Obviously neither of you have any experience bombing hills whatsoever, that's ok, just shut the fuck up when it comes time to judge the gnarliness of a hill bomb.

As far as being remembered as a great for one hill bomb?

wow, so much bickering! for what's it worth, when gipper was talking trash to me on the forum and i invited him to come through the office and talk in person, he came, and while he wasn't as intense of a trash talker in person, he did indeed let his opinions be known plainly in person, which i respected. COTG i can't comment on in terms of person vs. persona-- i tried to get the tranny challenge interview going with him to no avail. maybe some day. i like meeting forum people in person, but in the end it's more about who they are on here that keeps it all interesting and entertaining.

as for santa cruz, the main reason i took them there was to get in a good ditch spot for the week, the one people know as guzman's secret ditch, and that turned out great for pretty much everybody. we also wanted to skate the morrissey rail (stefan kickflip back tail, guzman, kickflip back smith, bledsoe fs hurricane, etc) but it was knobbed, so we skated some other crap. having lived in SC for years, yeah, lots of garbage, but some gems, too.

But questions don't do that, answers do.

Unless the implication is that Slap is sitting on a lot of footage of Forrest saying a lot of shit that would reverse the negative reception he's been getting (his persona, at least). I mean, the editing shows he's good at skateboarding... if there were an agenda against him it seems like that would be the focus of any selective editing.

Not to mention, Mark's a good dude... if you did an interview with him you'd come across however you come across, not Mark's version of you. It'd be cool to see that shit.

what's wrong with asking him about why he's not skating? not that i asked him personally, i was inside the spot when the question was asked of him, but i wouldn't have a problem asking him that if i had wanted to know right then.
forrest made his presence and thoughts known in a strong way. showing what he said and did is simply part of the the week. feel however you want about it, think whatever you want to think about my "agenda"-- i don't care. i know myself, i know the events of the week, and i'm totally comfortable with showing what went down.

Hyped two of my close friends Mango and Matty got in it this year. Too bad neither of them won though. Forrest is a prick. That dude is good but won't go anywhere in skating because of his personality/attitude. "I'm not here for the experience. I'm here to win." That dude doesn't appreciate shit. I know one of the dudes over at Slap pulled Forrest aside and straight up told him that he has the worst attitude out of anyone he has ever met. He did tre flip 50-50 on Clipper hubba but that doesn't mean shit to me.

If someone's acting out with a bad case of the cold shoulder to everyone, a little reality check in the form of visual evidence of their actions and words is what they need. If the person decides to check themselves after, their choice. Lack of respect and a bad attitude to people in the industry will--surprise--not get you very far in the industry, unless you're running with some company who will manipulate your character into something people will love. Which can be argued in Forrest's case in these episodes.

If people decide to like them or not after, their choice. Example: Bukowski. Undeniable asshole, hates people but has his idols, has admitted to it numerous times. I still love that guy's work though. Like most other people, I dig Forrest's skating, but I wouldn't want to break bread with the dude. And it's not even in his solo interviews or the way he's edited, when they show everyone else he seems to always be on his own. Whether that's a preference or the fact that he didn't vibe with all the other guys, I dunno. Sounds like you can't see the Forrest for the trees though, Child. He's obviously getting this kind of reputation for a reason, physical skill doesn't buy you good press all the time; Darwin's theory works in other ways.

And for the record, I think the interview would be a good idea.  How the fuck would you come off as a jerk in an interview like that anyway?

"So, how was it learning to skate transition?"
"I dunno, it's for old people and little kids but it's kind of scary."

Haven't heard that one before.

Not to say arrogance of any kind is good, but it's different when a guy who's been around for a while is being arrogant compared to a guy who's trying to come up. That kind of arrogance comes off as being bitter, like an old man. New guy coming up seems disrespectful and hot-headed. Which could work, and I could be wrong. A lot of people seem to like him regardless; he's definitely entertaining. I'd like to see more.

hes only entertaining because everyone is making fun of him, kind of like the cast of the jersey shore.
 
some say hes being a dick, some say hes keeping it real, i simply think hes being upfront about his cocky assholish ways.
do i think he'll get a sponsor?  probably not.   
at the end of the day, people can deal with being around assholes but no one likes being around cocky people.

There's not much of a story with me going to visit slap. I just kinda talk shit to Whiteley periodically, it wasn't a huge dramatic thing. He invited me to come down and check it out. I went, got some free slap shit, met him, ate some tacos and took a tour. I don't hide my opinions in real life, I think a lot of me doesn't translate to text, and really, I'm actually just an animated version of myself on here. I still hate Reagan, have extreme left-wing politics, love hills and transition and shit, and find rail skating boring. Shit just comes off crazy on here, and sometimes, instead of pulling back when I realize it, I embrace it.


Oh, and that one dude may have pulled back on claiming that hill bomb took no skill, but plenty since him have claimed it. That shit takes skill for sure. Stupidity was part of it for sure, but its that awesome kind of stupidity that produces great skating. And although a stupid bro might try a hill like that after a couple of jager bombs, he wouldn't make it very far before eating shit hard. John made it to the bottom of the hill, he just fucking died after it because there was nowhere to go. If you watch the angle from the top, there is a part that dips and he lofts up for a second. That could take out skilled hillbombers easily.

also, longboarders? Yeah, they can bomb bigger hills on those set ups, and can't stop for shit. That's why you see them on country roads but you don't see much of them in SF. A dude fully padded and on a 5 foot long board on huge soft wheels with some crazy suspension trucks can bomb a lot pretty easily. And that's crazy that you admit to posting on a longboarding forum.

Gonzo is sick, somebody should make a "team eyes too close together" banner for him.

Can't wait for the Sean Sheffey interview to come out. Slap is the shit. These videos are awesome too. I definitely felt terrible for that kid that wrecked. I was introduced to hill bombing really early on in my life being from Hawaii and living on a hill. Up in Seattle there are some serious hills, and I've seen lots of drunk, hill bombing at night, with the ground wet, super gnarly. Especially flying through an inner section or timing the lights and the ground being super rough from the rainy weather. I have a high respect for hill bombs, but please be careful.

the way forrest focused on that double set was incredible. to get those three tricks that quickly is as good or better than almost any pro could hope for at that spot- his skill and focus are undeniable. he gets some other really good tricks throughout the week, but this session was something else. props to him for putting those three down- like i said in the video, he killed that spot, and those tricks will be remembered.
another thing- how about that doubleflip from reuben? i don't really like that trick a ton, but i also don't think i've ever seen a better caught one down something that big. check out the article with the photos, you can really see how well he caught it.

It's crazy that he got all three of those tricks so easily. He didn't even take the time to take off his jacket on the first two. and when he fell it's like the rough ground didn't even bother him.

I feel like there's a thing where if you're doing double flips and you're not Kerry Getz you have to be wearing shorts and visible socks.

sorry, but you can't claim to know what's definite or not unless you are the person doing the editing- which you are not. it is in because it was funny. if you pay attention to the rest of the episode, you hear forrest say he likes john, right? so why would he dis him intentionally? he didn't, he was looking the other way, john gets left hanging, it's funny. end of story. also, if you pay attention you will hear me giving forrest unabashed props for what he did, and if you read above, you will see me typing them as well. there is no agenda against forrest. since i know you will go on thinking whatever you like about it, which is totally your prerogative, i am hereby done arguing about it with you.

I agree with COTG on a couple things now. Although I still think Forrest is a douche bag he does kinda make the episodes and he did not intentionally diss the dude. The guy was in mid session and was looking the other way, I really don't see why it was edited in except to make him even worse that he already made himself look. I think what it comes down to is that he didn't win and all this over editing of his douchness is to make people think they made the right choice. The other place I'm going to agree with COTG is that Rueben is possibly just as annoying as Forrest just in a different way, however he is much younger so I'll blame it on that. It is obvious that these dudes LOVE Rueben and I'm calling it right now that he'll win.

Forrest did kill that double set those are 3 good ass tricks and the switch tre was perfect. Gotta give credit where credit is due.

Yeah....2 different personalities that are on opposite sides of the spectrum.

Can't believe we are only on episode 7 when there is going to be 24 altogether. I love how Forrest said he didn't even try on the bigflip when that trick seemed the hardest. Got to love this guy for making OIAM such a great show. It wouldn't be the same if he wasn't in the contest.

A kid being stoked on a sick trick is annoying? That one is perplexing. He's not some 10 year old screaming like a banshee.

And people still claiming Whiteley has an agenda with the editing are fucking fools. When is a dude left hanging not funny? If people are taking it too far, that's them. Slap's used what they've used because it's what they had of him. I doubt they're using only the worst footage, it's just the footage they have of him that's relevant to the current video. Seriously, he just comes off like that. There's no editing tricks making him look like a cocky cock. He just is. Slap isn't making him look worse, he's doing that. I'm not trying to bash him, because he did kill that double set, and the ss 180 nosegrind from last time blew my mind. Just his attitude is sour.

Surprised that Gonzo kid didn't do nothing since he killed the theater at Golden Gate Park. Maybe it was cause the stairs was too long but seems like he should have at least tried (unless they didn't film it).

Anyone who thinks the clip of homie left hanging was done to make Forrest look bad is being willfully ignorant.

I'm not a fan of Forrest... he's definitely a talented skater, but he's a kook. Having said that, if there was ever a Forrest's redemption episode, this would be it.

As a non-fan, this makes me like the dude a little more because I got to see him rip and talk less, but how anyone could interpret this one as a dis on him just doesn't make sense.

I don't think he clips because the stair is so low. His tail was definitely over the stair, but it doesn't look like it touched it.

this is correct as far as i could tell while standing right there. i don't think he would have been satisfied with a clip. he re-does other things later in the week that weren't 100%.

episode count-- it's gonna be 18 all in all. we expand the length of them and condense days into 1 or 2 episodes for awhile. the release pace will also slow a little around the holidays.

also, gonzo tried some hardflips but it wasn't there for him that session.

It's the editor's fault that some people aren't looking at what's actually happening?

I think our differing perspectives on this is funny... I'm not a Forrest supporter, but found this episode to shine him in a pretty damn good light, while you do support him, and think there's something in here that makes him look bad.

In the end, people are just going to see what they want to I guess.

It's entertaining how Child comes on here to constantly tell people what they think. I'm amazed anyone waste their time trying to reason with him.

Forrest finally got to show off. Killed it. Props. Did anyone expect him not to eventually kill it after seeing his sponsor video in the any of the other "stop picking on Forrest" threads?

I would like to see more skating. Even bails or mediocre lines. It's hard to see who is good at skating and who is good at tricks when you just show the days top 5 tricks.

straight double kickflips over a long gap take a shitload of skill.

I like Reuben but double kickflips are wack. It seems like everyone(except COTG) is in agreement that Forrest's attitude overshadows his skill, which is pretty wild because he has a whole lot of skill. Back 3, first try? That's just ridiculous. Its impossible to hate on that.

Not a fan of double flips at all, and it made it more wack doing it after forrest had already shut down the spot. Like really? your going to do a double flip after seeing that? No one should have even skated after that big-flip, show some respect and sit down and watch forrest kill it. Leave the double flips to kerry getz.

One of the better and funnier episodes. John being a jerk is an unsupported claim. Dude got left hanging but Forrest said he's down for him later on. I saw it as funny. Reuban and Forrest, it's just a clash of personalities. Yet again, Forrest didn't go into the Flower Shop to watch the session or hang around, which is why there was that focus of him being outside of the group. When the other dudes don't skate, they're always in the background and giving props to the guys putting it down. Except for Reuban, because no one likes double flips, even if they were done perfect. Good job anyway.

Personally though, I watched that shit and didn't get the vibe he was ignoring him. If anything that John dude looked like a douche for hanging the arm so long when Forest wasn't looking.

John, next time just shout "Nice job Forest. I want to touch hands with you." and this will all be avoided.

I knew something was up. You have a regular ass nigga in there with these weirdos. Are you really about to hug a nigga with his shirt off? I told you niggas.
If I may use one of your favorites:
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
The look on Forrest's face when dude tried to hug him was amazing, someone should make an animated .gif of that shit or just a screen grab of that moment where his face is just like horrified that he's getting hugged.

He did fuck that double set up though.
Those three tricks were sick and done so quick, and on the switch 360 flip his legs looked so crazy like he might not have a chance and then he stomped it, truly mental.

And it also looked like he did not leave dude hanging intentionally, he definitely seemed to be looking in the other direction by then.

At this point it's like you can't wait to see what Forrest is gonna do next, straight up entertainment right here.

calling out a dude for doing a trick regardless of what it was after someone else already did something is stupid. if youre skating with friends your gonna wanna skate regardless and seeing someone else land stuff only hypes you up more.i wouldve done a trick i was feeling despite that trick being less awesome, atleast you landed something. and rube and the rest of the guys seem like dudes who would actually be fun to skate with unlike forrest who while talented, his attitude whether hes serious or not is not going to carry him far in the industry or outside of skating.

and just like i said, no one is making a big deal about the other 5 dudes not skating a spot.

Seems like all other could skate gaps/stairs, but chose not to. Only Rueben and Forrest was throwing down.

I'm sure I could ollie that set.  And if I tried really really hard I might be able to do some other shit down it.  But if I went there with a crew, and someone immediately started throwing down Bigspin Flips, I would definitely sit down and watch.  Pretty sure that's why most of those guys didn't bother.  Forrest was on it, may as well sit back and enjoy the show.

I'm sure this is the same reason why Forrest didn't skate that bowl.  I know for a fact that some of my friends will skate transition when I'm not around.  But if I'm there, they kinda don't bother because the stuff they're trying to learn is basics to me.  It's not a bragging thing, it's just that I'm at another level than they are at that type of skating, and it's a bit disheartening for them to try.  

Or for instance...I can skate ledges decently well, but if P.Rod and Shane O'neil showed up, I'd get myself as far away from that ledge as possible.  Hell...if TNT showed up and started skating a bowl, I'd probably sit down and watch.

I mean it would have been cool to see at least more than one other dude try something down it but I think they knew at that point that they weren't going to get anything gnarlier than what Forrest was putting down

Also after that first try 360 I'm sure dude's were like I GOT NOTHING FOR THIS SPOT.

not feeling that rueben kid, seems like he's trying too hard to be the "super nice dude who's down for everything". Mind you, he's 16, so it's better than acting like a douche. Not a fan of double flips at all, and it made it more wack doing it after forrest had already shut down the spot. Like really? your going to do a double flip after seeing that? No one should have even skated after that big-flip, show some respect and sit down and watch forrest kill it. Leave the double flips to kerry getz.


calling out a dude for doing a trick regardless of what it was after someone else already did something is stupid. if youre skating with friends your gonna wanna skate regardless and seeing someone else land stuff only hypes you up more.i wouldve done a trick i was feeling despite that trick being less awesome, atleast you landed something. and rube and the rest of the guys seem like dudes who would actually be fun to skate with unlike forrest who while talented, his attitude whether hes serious or not is not going to carry him far in the industry or outside of skating.

whatever dude, I wouldn't say I'm calling the dude out we are on the internet after all, since when did my opinion matter? last time I checked this thing is a competition, not just "skating with friends", and why throw down a wack ass double flip after the spot has just been destroyed, seems rather pointless to me.

it's funny, slap has used one of the oldest tactics in the book of reality shows. put on someone who is a complete dick to everybody and the viewers will (for the most part), hate him. he's controversial which makes the show interesting. i never really followed the one in a million's before this year because they were pretty dull for the most part. there's already like 25 pages of people talking about OIAM in this thread, the majority being about forrest. it's tight though, definitely not complaining... he's entertaining to watch for sure.

Agreed 1000%, and I think your mention of the other dudes sitting back and not skating is valid as well.

I don't have any animosity towards double flips, but even if I did, the fact is that only two of them really skated the set... and even if all of the other cats just did one footers down it, it would have shown their own diversity in what kind of shit they'll skate and if anything, just enhance the fact that Forrest had the right to chisel his name on every stair there.

I wish Forrest had tried to at least to an edger on transition, but I also would have liked to have seen some of the other contest participants do a go-to trick of some sort no matter how basic they may have been compared to the difficulty and variety that Forrest displayed.

I can understand John sitting out though, as just an ollie could've made his frankenstaples open up, probably even with a perfect landing.

what exactly is wrong with double flips?  or is it to block triples and quads from coming in?  

kinda seems like saying bigger flips are gayer than big flips.  no comprendo.

I agree that Forrest has the potential to win this contest but winning it will get him no where as far as skating for a career goes. I know there are some examples of skaters with messed up attitudes that make a decent living with skating but who would honestly pick this guy up if the majority of people out there hate him (actually that is a questions because I feel like he could fit on some teams and sponsors but just don't know who). Only team I really see him on is Selfish or maybe on a Baker team if he meshes with those guys. Shit....maybe even DGK would fuck with him as well.

i dont direct comments at people unless i quote them & say "you fucking idiot....." ya know? not to sound stupid but, i'm not going to just log on here & talk about posters without calling them out straight by their name. i also can't keep up with 28 pages of dumbasses with the same fucking opinion..... i'm not putting you in that category, i'm putting all the people with 12 posts that are logging in here saying the same shit about how ungreatful & how he didn't give fives & blah blah blah blah i can't read all that shit so, i just fast forward through it & say this.... i take back my comments of mark or daryl directly being negative or mean towards forrest or the editor trying to make him  look bad, it seems like it at first with the whole golden gate thing but, who cares i'll pretend like i didn't notice. as for your question, no i don't think the high five bullshit was used to make him lok like a dick, i think it was obvious that he wasn't paying attention to the dude & just walked off. besides, forrest gave him a shout out & said he liked the dude but, that he was just quiet. so, he probably didn't expect that dude to try & give him a high five ya know? like i don't think he expects everybody to run up & be all stoked on his shit especially that dude when he just said he was quiet & the dude was sitting by himself against the wall yaknow? forrest wouldn't turn down a high five, not even from rueben obviously ya know? i mean he will turn down a shirtless hug hahah but i think that was the best-sportsmenship in this whole thing & i hate to use that word because i dont see skating as a sport but, i just mean, forrest is the last dude that's gonna give you a fucking hug, especially rueben, so not being like "no dude thats pretty fucking gay" deserves a round of applause from all you fools. i used to hate this fool but cotg is on point in this thread not because he says the same shit as me but because he knows what he is talking about.

and just like i said, no one is making a big deal about the other 5 dudes not skating a spot.

Seems like all other could skate gaps/stairs, but chose not to. Only Rueben and Forrest was throwing down.

I'm sure I could ollie that set.?  And if I tried really really hard I might be able to do some other shit down it.?  But if I went there with a crew, and someone immediately started throwing down Bigspin Flips, I would definitely sit down and watch.?  Pretty sure that's why most of those guys didn't bother.?  Forrest was on it, may as well sit back and enjoy the show.

I'm sure this is the same reason why Forrest didn't skate that bowl.?  I know for a fact that some of my friends will skate transition when I'm not around.?  But if I'm there, they kinda don't bother because the stuff they're trying to learn is basics to me.?  It's not a bragging thing, it's just that I'm at another level than they are at that type of skating, and it's a bit disheartening for them to try.? 

Or for instance...I can skate ledges decently well, but if P.Rod and Shane O'neil showed up, I'd get myself as far away from that ledge as possible.?  Hell...if TNT showed up and started skating a bowl, I'd probably sit down and watch.
Man I'm disappointed in you. You're supposed to hold your shit down. If p rod came to my ledges that nigga would definitely know who's spot it was.

at the interview thing toward the end you could tell forrest felt really awkward when whitely told him how much he killed it, which probably inversely relates to why forrest doesnt just say hes hyped on everything else that people do in the contest

That episode did seem slanted against his personality actually. I mean, I'm sure he's a dick anyway, otherwise he wouldn't make people want to portray him as one, but the fact that they explicitly point out his 10th try then show a clip of him saying he probably only tried to skate it 10 times total on top of leaving the dude hanging kinda did. Obviously the dude was exaggerating, but it just seemed like a super subtle dig for some reason. And whoever is claiming that the editor didn't know people were going to think he was a dick because they would have to be idiots to think that- I guarantee whoever editted this has come on here, and therefore most know that thousands of morons will definitely be watching this.

Its funny that everybody is loving on that double flip, because it made me reconsider my respect for them. Next to the shit Forrest was doing, a double flip just seems like something that looks really technical, but really isn't. Like "Oh he's killing it, if I want to compare I need to do a kickflip that flips twice" it just seems silly to me for some reason. I mean, I'm sure I couldn't do it down that, but the tricks Forrest did and Gonzo's hardflip were gnarlier by far.

Considering Forrest's open and loud homophobia (one of the first things he says is reassurance that his tricks are heterosexual) I feel like Mango and Reuben are straight fucking with Forrest just to make him feel uncomfortable. Either way, Mango is rad.

whether you prefer one to the other is irrelevant, but a hardflip is definitely an easier trick than a double flip. no question about it.

its all casting, writing and editing just like any other reality show. the skating is quite good though.

p.s. on the whole missed daps ordeal: i dont think that forrest was intentionally snubbing jon, or as forrest referred to as the quiet guy. Jon didnt speak up and say something like, "leave me hanging," or, "fuck your props."  if you look closely you will notice that the only two people that probably knew that this had happened at this point are the camera operator and jon himself. Not even jack curtain saw it. Im calling this the Jack Curtain Defense.

Double flip is a tad easier than hardflip for me, but trick difficulty always differs from person to person.
Not saying I'm backing reuben's trick selection, but he made his look better than most. Hardflip is obviously the better trick though

to me, hardflips seem to just be barely more difficult than a kickflip, and about the same amount of effort. i always seem to have to kick super hard or put my feet in weird positions to do double flips. must just be me then.

stefan would probably say a kickflip was harder then a switch flip or took more effort. everyone is different. hardflip is deffinatly cooler. double flips are dorky unless they are done well.

Yeah that is how it was back in the day when wheels were hella small, double flips were fucking easy but I haven't tried to do one in forever.
The way I see it, double flips, much like underflips and late flips, came and went a long time ago for a reason, they were pretty much fucking stupid, and now for some reason they're back and a lot of people think they're cool but I still think they're ugly and unnecessary.

I mean if a double flip is supposedly so much radder than a regular kickflip, why don't guys do triple or quadruple flips, because by that reasoning wouldn't that be cooler than a double flip?
I mean go quintuple with it why not.
Might as well sextuple flip!

Ah fuck it people are gonna do them no matter what so I'll just shut up now.
Waiting for the next episode.

I find it easy to do double flip that hardflip, When i double flip, the key is to jump high, not so much the flick. When I try a hardflip I concentrate on fs shove it first then kickback with my front foot, sort of a mind fuck at times.

Forrest obviously rubbed a lot of people the wrong way for the start and acted like an asshole. Why should they potray him as anything else than that? Go out of their way to make him look like nothing of the sort happened? Fuck that. You reap what you sow. Like the board breaking incident for instance. Forrest's friend here was like "I try to pretend they didn't try to make him look bad". Well, you just don't act like that. You say please, you say thank you. Normal rules of presenting yourself in the world, no? Especially if someone is lending you a hand. Leaving something like that out would have been twisting the truth cause it's so fucking weird he acted like that.

And Slap most defintely did not play down his skating, quite the opposite. I think the reason for numbering the tries on the bigflip was to give an idea how quick it went, how on it he was and how close to nailing it right away he was, not to set him up for the interview.

As for winning the contest, or getting hooked up by a company, skill only won't do it. Nobody wants to hire a dickhead who's hard to work with.

since COTG is calling us out on having something against forrest, lets just show him doing tricks and leave out the clips of him saying the stupid shit he says.
i might be wrong but its obvious that forrest suffers from a pretty bad case of foot in mouth disease.  i find it odd that right after COTG made a stink about it that forrest was suddenly cured.

I like how there are all different types of skaters in the finals. Here's my breakdown:
Forrest- Jock asshole
Mango- wacky, creative skater, tiltmode type dude
John- fucking hesher (not in the metal sense, in skating it has come to have its own meaning)
East bay guy (I forgot his name too somehow) style guy
Reuben- hyper skate rat

over the several years i have lurked on this board some of the posters have stated they met COTG and he was really cool and just a normal guy and fun to skate with.   they have also said the exact same thing about Gipper too.  

it sort of shows how ridiculous some of you are by thinking SLAP has much  to do with real life

well except for Rawb.  he's one of the best posters and i hope he is exactly the same in real life...which i think he is.

i'm pretty sure Gip posted "who?" next to his name because we've barely seen any footage of him. we're all busy talking about Forrest, but not many of you have acknowledged the fact that Nik is nowhere to be found. did he even have a board during OIAM? did he bring the wrong pair of shoes with him or something?

i'm pretty sure Gip posted "who?" next to his name because we've barely seen any footage of him. we're all busy talking about Forrest, but not many of you have acknowledged the fact that Nik is nowhere to be found. did he even have a board during OIAM? did he bring the wrong pair of shoes with him or something?

Isn't the footage we've seen so far only from the first day? If you think about it, most of the spots were kind of jumping spots and if you're not that much of a jumper, what are you gonna do? The same thing with Mango, I suppose. A gap, stair sets and a high bench. I can see a lot of skaters not having too much to give at those spots.

Also, that Nik-dude tore a good sized chunk off his palm at that nasty "over the rail into a bank" spot. That might slow things down a bit, too.

Has this been posted yet? The new episode is really good. It seems like every time a video is posted I end up saying that both John and Matt killed it super hard. Mango's line was really cool, too, and I'm stoked to finally see some footage from Nik, even if it is just one trick.

The front page article is about to go up with sequences from Reuben and Tommy Sandoval from the brick flat gap. Mark said they "didn't get filmed because we were in the process of getting kicked out and the filmers were packing up"

and before anyone starts this shit again, let's point out that gonzo and forrest did not skate the first spot of the day, but lets also keep in mind it is one of many and i bet some people who skated the ditch wont skate some of the other spots later.

Man...not to beat a dead horse but I just love the whole feel of this whole thing and without Forrest, it wouldn't have that reality show feel. Just that whole conversation with the thank yous is such a reality show sound bite. This whole thing makes me feel how when I found out what the Berrics was. At the time, the Berrics were revolutionary for just putting out so much footage of your favorite skaters skating. This OIAM contest is that next new thing that is so different from what is out. I hope this kind of spawns more new ideas at Slap. Forrest reality show! Like showing him trying to get sponsors or but telling them to fuck off cause he's over it before it even starts.

don't forget hes the youngest dude in there so he might feel a need to be respectful to his elders. 
people forget that some parents actually raise their kids to have manners.   


its kind of sad that forrest didn't have a trick for that spot either.
it seems if it isn't stairs, rails or basic ledges(all off of flat), he ain't got shit on shit.

I know it may seem as if Reuben is coming off as overly polite or whatever, but he really is that nice of a dude. He was just raised to be thankful for everything. It's funny how Forrest can't fathom that somebody like that exists haha. The remarks about him being an ass kisser is whack. He was only 16 and it was one of his first trips skating outside of SD pretty much, he was honestly just stoked to be there and get out of school for a week haha.

huh? do you mean like crooks to fakie and 180 fakie 5-0's? (which are 90 degree turns to fakie 5-0.) i just think it's funny that you love ledges yet you hate an obstacle that requires you to get more speed to go up a bank to grind/slide on a ledge. because in order to kickflip front tail a bank to ledge you have to almost do a whole frontside flip into it, which would be harder than on a regular ledge. kind of works both ways, i guess.

Post by: Ronald Wilson Reagan on December 17, 2010, 02:51:07 PM
That ditch is raw as fuck. Its fanned concrete, steep, the ledge is kind of awkward and getting speed to hit it is not as cut and dry as it seems. There are all sorts of weird patches of grass and cracks along the bottom and you gotta push your ass off to get to the top anyway. Its not just an average bank to ledge. COTG wouldn't get shit on there except a noseslide.

And seriously, all you people pointing out every time somebody doesn't skate a spot need to just stop.
 First of all, not being able to skate tranny, an entire genre of skating, not just a spot, makes you a shittier skater. Second of all, the worst thing a person can do is put down a spot that they are unable to skate. Its obnoxious and closeminded. That's what Forrest did in the flowershop with his "I'll skate that when I get old" line. When Mango couldn't skate the flatgap he wasn't like "I'm not some socal loser" he said that shit was scary. Forrest was just as scared of the flowershop, but instead of just admitting he was outclassed at that one spot (not a big deal) he makes it seem like its the spot's fault he can't skate it or something, or that actually having the ability to skate it was something to be ashamed of.
He's a punk.

I'd enjoy Forrest so much more if it weren't for his dickriders coming on to this forum to act like we should take his personality seriously. If I could just laugh at him, I'd like him by now for sure. But when his obnoxious dickriders come on here, its ruins it. It would be like watching Jersey Shore with a bunch of Guidos. As soon as they started giving me shit for laughing at the GTL I would go from laughing at and liking them to just hating them.
honestly, I'd like them all more without the dick riders. You guys getting Nik's back so hard just because he is from the east coast are helping to prove every word of shittalking COTG has ever done about the east coast. Dude didn't get shit for the first two days, and even admitted it, but you guys come on here acting like him being from the east coast is on par with John's hill bombing and tranny stomping and Forrest's double set annhialation. It's not. Honestly, if people from the east coast are so great at dealing with fucked up rough spots, Nick should be killing it, but somehow he's going to crusty spots and watching kids from SD rip it harder than him. Nik ripped his hand open is your excuse? Look at John a day after opening up his scalp deep enough to see his skull. Still getting clips. The backtail 180 Nik did on that bank to ledge was sick, and without the dickriders thats all I'd say, but now you got me needing to defend claiming the dude hadn't done shit, and the dude you came to rep looks shittier. Congratulations.

The bank to ledge Gino sw noseslide in Chocolate Tour is not easier than a sw noseslide on a ledge and I'm sure there are more examples. Also pretty sure TX has done sw bs flip nosegrind, as a lot of people considering, Gino did it without a flick a long time ago.

ive been there. spot is sick, its not as hard to skate as you make it sound. its just like any other spot that you just have to give it a couple goes before you get used to it, then its no big.

That ditch is raw as fuck. Its fanned concrete, steep, the ledge is kind of awkward and getting speed to hit it is not as cut and dry as it seems.

That just shows you how terrible he is at skateboarding. Asking him if a spot is hard and asking someone that skates if a spot is hard is different In the same way that if you asked a 10 year old girl is 225 pounds heavy, and then asked an NFL linebacker if it's heavy.

you've never skated with me, so you don't know what I'm capable of. I know someone that's skated with you, and he said you're not that good, but in a nice way.

but gauging what someone could or couldn't do at a certain spot is stupid and useless, if not for providing more fodder for further arguments. which are also useless.

IMO Banks to ledges are extremely fun, if you're one of the people that don't enjoy them fine, don't enjoy them, but you're missing out for sure.
Fuck it, I have no qualms saying that I think banks to curbs are even more fun than banks to ledges, but then I guess someone like COTG would think that those were even gayer than a bank to ledge and therefore never to be touched.

Oh well, dudes are gonna skate what they want to skate and shit on stuff that they think sucks, such is life here on the Slap boards.

Instead you say that they are gay and shit all over people for liking them and doing tricks on them.
Like you say they're fun for some people, not fun for you, let's just leave it at that.

As far as saying "you're missing out", obviously it's just an expression and it doesn't literally apply to everyone.
Oh and I actually do feel like I'm missing out in a sense when I see dudes doing insane tech shit like switch tail 270 heels because it would be sick to be able to actually do those.

They are lame, there's really no way around that, but if someone has fun skating them, there's nothing wrong with that.

We could start in LA, hit up my hometown Chi, quick Milwaukee, hit some east coast so we can get some decent "East Coast sucks" quotes out of COTG -- it's a nice excuse for me to get back to LA for a bit.  Gipper -- I'm willing to film some political diatribe too (btw have you seen Waiting for Superman?  thoughts?). 

Instant subscribers.  COTG would be sponsored after episode 1 and Gipper can donate his funds to the government.

I'm pretty sure he's wearing the same pants and jacket, but if he was wearing the same shirt everyday that would be disgusting, especially for how much he sweats. I'm pretty sure he just has a bunch of black shirts. Plus, in the episode they skated Kezar he was rocking a Spitfire shirt

fucking good episode, shove crook by matty was definately the coolest; it looked like a fun session. �

Noticed this as well.
And like everyone said John and Matty killed it. �Niks trick was really nice and Mango's line was badass. �Also can't wait to see what Forrest did down those stairs. �


Oh! come come now!  Can't a man just dig up his nose in public without criticism?  I wasn't watching though, is he a flicker?  Then I'd have a problem.

he flicks the rawest booger i've ever seen in my life in part 8 towards the beginning

Hah, you lie! I re-watched and saw said digging but they cut before the 'flick'.  He may have yet wiped it in his shirt.

haha, it's in episode 3! saw it last night while showing my brother the comedy of Forrest. eehhhh...

im sure if they skate the bay blocks he wont be phased by the rough ledges and gets a nollie heel nose slide.

They DID skate the  bay blocks. He got nothing over the flatgap, then they skated that street gap on treasure Island, and he didn't get shit. The only time he gets tricks are when a drop is involved. He does that amazingly well, but hasn't shown any sort of ability to do much more than that. He seems to need pretty generic shit to be able to do a trick on it.

I wanna see what forrest did down those stairs
it starts with switch & ends with backside flip
so, can he do anything besides huck himself down stairs? We already know he doesn't skate tranny or ditches...
is someone lame to you if there footage doesn't consist of banks & pole jams? i mean, i skate mostly tranny & ditches & i'm sure majority of us do seeing as how most of us grew up in california & must of you are 35 year olds who grew up skating bowls... i see why you don't dig forrest, can he skate anything besides gaps & stairs? you tell me..

* in one of the first episodes, mango says something to the effect of 'i'm not in it to win it, i'm a soul skater', and was being completely serious. it's a reverse arrogance. his shitty trick selection isn't creative either, it just matches his haircut.

You've got to be kidding, he couldn't have been more obviously kidding if he had winked afterward

I wanna see what forrest did down those stairs

so, can he do anything besides huck himself down stairs? We already know he doesn't skate tranny or ditches...

im sure if they skate the bay blocks he wont be phased by the rough ledges and gets a nollie heel nose slide.
i have a feeling his ledge moves will be on point. think there was something on the double rock hubba..
They DID skate the  bay blocks. He got nothing over the flatgap, then they skated that street gap on treasure Island, and he didn't get shit. The only time he gets tricks are when a drop is involved. He does that amazingly well, but hasn't shown any sort of ability to do much more than that. He seems to need pretty generic shit to be able to do a trick on it.
switch 180 5-0 on the back of the bench.
I highlighted where your argument makes no sense. And that sw 180 5-0 was ugly as shit, it was just a tap. I've seen way too many people do way cooler shit in front of my eyes to be impressed with that clip of a tap.

not defending shit it's just a great argument where gipper & the rest of you slowy run out of things to say... whenever an argument goes the other guy's way it's... "oh he's so defensive".... that's like say "oh... i'm wrong but i still have to sound tough".... band of fags dicks
I couldn't get any further back without going back to thread instead of the reply screen, but you are terrible at arguing. You make your man look worse every time you argue, and even though I have told you this, you stick with insulting the audience for not liking the same shit you do. Of course you don't see why forrest is a douchebag- You are a bigger douchebag than him. Your argument was terrible claiming that I'm saying he should do pole jams and wall rides. I said FLAT GAP. You know, the kind of gap where you land at the same height you took off from? They've skated two of them, and Forrest hasn't done shit on either. For a guy who doesn't skate anything but gaps, that's blowing it pretty hard.

you don't really make a whole lot of sence either you pointed out the switch 180 nosegrind & then agreed that all he can skate is drops? stupid. & yeah dude it's totally blowing it when you don't skate one spot you could have skated gipper? that makes absolutly no sence dude. props to matty though for having been to each of the spots like 900 fucking times before the contest though right? & you call him out on skating nothing but drops but, then you criticize how he skated a tall bench instead of getting tricks on the flat gap? you are a straight up idiot gipper you never say shit that actually makes sence or you just sit & contradict your own opinions alllday.

did he even try anything but that sw bs heel? if not, incredible. if yes, still goddamn incredible.

hmm, he must have ollied it but i don't really recall him trying much else. forrest rarely messed around with anything he didn't have his eyes locked on. he may have tossed out a nollie bs flip attempt that didn't go anywhere, but the time was spent on the sw bs heel for sure.

 That boneless was embarrassing. Can Forrest actually ride a skateboard or just flip it down large drops? Mango and Forrest should have their own show where they just get on each others nerves. That Fakie Ollie was too smooth. Can we all move past the fact that this is edited to  showcase every ones individual personality and if you don't like it, you should stop blaming the editing and go read a book.

he considers himself a loner, a one-man-wolfpack

I'm legitimately pulling for forest at this point.

He's obviously incredibly good, and I think he prlly just has problem making friends/fitting in, so he puts on the tough exterior.

Forrest's problem is that he is a complete prick. The answer to that is to have some tact, which he has none of, and this is costing him social acceptance. Boo fucking hoo. Maybe he'll learn a lesson and will get a little humble. That dude needs a lesson like that.
I wanna see what forrest did down those stairs
it starts with switch & ends with backside flip
so, can he do anything besides huck himself down stairs? We already know he doesn't skate tranny or ditches...

im sure if they skate the bay blocks he wont be phased by the rough ledges and gets a nollie heel nose slide.
i have a feeling his ledge moves will be on point. think there was something on the double rock hubba..
They DID skate the?� bay blocks. He got nothing over the flatgap, then they skated that street gap on treasure Island, and he didn't get shit. The only time he gets tricks are when a drop is involved. He does that amazingly well, but hasn't shown any sort of ability to do much more than that. He seems to need pretty generic shit to be able to do a trick on it.
switch 180 5-0 on the back of the bench.
I highlighted where your argument makes no sense. And that sw 180 5-0 was ugly as shit, it was just a tap. I've seen way too many people do way cooler shit in front of my eyes to be impressed with that clip of a tap.
i highlighted the part where i was pointing out that your argument makes no sense.
you don't really make a whole lot of sence either you pointed out the switch 180 nosegrind & then agreed that all he can skate is drops? stupid. & yeah dude it's totally blowing it when you don't skate one spot you could have skated gipper? that makes absolutly no sence dude. props to matty though for having been to each of the spots like 900 fucking times before the contest though right? & you call him out on skating nothing but drops but, then you criticize how he skated a tall bench instead of getting tricks on the flat gap? you are a straight up idiot gipper you never say shit that actually makes sence or you just sit & contradict your own opinions alllday.
you're fucking retarded, and that's all there is to it. gipper said forrest doesn't get anything on any spot that's not a drop, so i pointed out the fact that he did a switch 180 5-0 on the back of the bench, but then he decided to pretend like he didn't say that shit about the drop and decided to emphasize the fact that he didn't skate a flat gap.
I was talking about gaps, pointing out he always has something for a gap with a drop, but if you have to land the same height as you took off, he's not getting clips. They skated 2 flatgaps so far and he has been completely absent from the footy of them.

And shouldn't, don't call it the "big bench" because its actually a small bench, and Forrest's trick on it was ugly as sin. He grinded like 1 inch. I agree on Matty Hunt with what you were saying, that he has skated those spots a bunch before- I pointed it out during the voting on videos. Luckily though, his style is good enough that I don't think he could be cheating that. PLenty of locals never learn to skate their spots with style.
The thing that you are missing is really, Forrest isn't in a contest against any of them, he's in a contest against himself. You could have a whole bunch of mongo pushers who couldn't even ollie off of a curb and I'd prefer them. Forrest is comically unlikable, and you coming on representing as his friend talking shit on the other dudes in some sort of terrible attempt to get others to like him or something is completely backfiring. It just makes him a funnier target.

lol you talk like cotg is the only person that likes forest. aside from the opinions of a message board which you can look at yourself (and see that forest is actually quite popular), everyone I know that has seen the show, and doesn't post on slap (or any forum) actually loves forest. i got friends that dont even skateboard that are hooked on the show because they find forest to be hilarious. Forest edwards is the kenny powers of skateboarding. and it's awesome.

How are any of them lame? Reuben comes off as a little overly-fake-nice? Something like that? It probably just comes off like that because he's the youngest one, getting to go on a free filming vacation with the chance to become sponsored/get noticed. I think most people that age would be acting that way, and super excited at that opportunity.

Most of em seem pretty chill and/or funny to me.

Don't be so defensive, I am serious about pulling for Forest. He is extremely good. I don't know anything about his background, but it definitely seems like he has some social issues, which is common for a lot of skateboarders, myself included, and if so, would make me respect him more than if just had the douche attitude and was negative towards everyone for no reason.

He's definitely done the sickest tricks so far.

Matty has my favorite style out of anyone, needs to drop the "y" off his name though.

Mango is a lot of fun to watch, I forsee him putting out a lot of sick youtube parts in the future(the one edited to "mama's boy" coulda been better, judging by how good he is here.

Rueben is a dickrider of the highest order. Dickriders are the worst people, because they have no opinion, and they'll change for whoever's in front of them. Mango thinks he's funny but he isn't. nik doesn't even exist. matty and gonzalo, are both lame, but still normal. John is a goober. I don't see why he would want to befriend any of those dudes. and then with the actual staff that works there being against him. I wouldn't be hanging out with those niggas either.

Forrest's problem is that he is a complete prick. The answer to that is to have some tact, which he has none of, and this is costing him social acceptance. Boo fucking hoo. Maybe he'll learn a lesson and will get a little humble. That dude needs a lesson like that.
I wanna see what forrest did down those stairs
it starts with switch & ends with backside flip
so, can he do anything besides huck himself down stairs? We already know he doesn't skate tranny or ditches...

im sure if they skate the bay blocks he wont be phased by the rough ledges and gets a nollie heel nose slide.
i have a feeling his ledge moves will be on point. think there was something on the double rock hubba..
They DID skate the?? bay blocks. He got nothing over the flatgap, then they skated that street gap on treasure Island, and he didn't get shit. The only time he gets tricks are when a drop is involved. He does that amazingly well, but hasn't shown any sort of ability to do much more than that. He seems to need pretty generic shit to be able to do a trick on it.
switch 180 5-0 on the back of the bench.
I highlighted where your argument makes no sense. And that sw 180 5-0 was ugly as shit, it was just a tap. I've seen way too many people do way cooler shit in front of my eyes to be impressed with that clip of a tap.
i highlighted the part where i was pointing out that your argument makes no sense.
you don't really make a whole lot of sence either you pointed out the switch 180 nosegrind & then agreed that all he can skate is drops? stupid. & yeah dude it's totally blowing it when you don't skate one spot you could have skated gipper? that makes absolutly no sence dude. props to matty though for having been to each of the spots like 900 fucking times before the contest though right? & you call him out on skating nothing but drops but, then you criticize how he skated a tall bench instead of getting tricks on the flat gap? you are a straight up idiot gipper you never say shit that actually makes sence or you just sit & contradict your own opinions alllday.
you're fucking retarded, and that's all there is to it. gipper said forrest doesn't get anything on any spot that's not a drop, so i pointed out the fact that he did a switch 180 5-0 on the back of the bench, but then he decided to pretend like he didn't say that shit about the drop and decided to emphasize the fact that he didn't skate a flat gap.
I was talking about gaps, pointing out he always has something for a gap with a drop, but if you have to land the same height as you took off, he's not getting clips. They skated 2 flatgaps so far and he has been completely absent from the footy of them.

And shouldn't, don't call it the "big bench" because its actually a small bench, and Forrest's trick on it was ugly as sin. He grinded like 1 inch. I agree on Matty Hunt with what you were saying, that he has skated those spots a bunch before- I pointed it out during the voting on videos. Luckily though, his style is good enough that I don't think he could be cheating that. PLenty of locals never learn to skate their spots with style.
The thing that you are missing is really, Forrest isn't in a contest against any of them, he's in a contest against himself. You could have a whole bunch of mongo pushers who couldn't even ollie off of a curb and I'd prefer them. Forrest is comically unlikable, and you coming on representing as his friend talking shit on the other dudes in some sort of terrible attempt to get others to like him or something is completely backfiring. It just makes him a funnier target.
first off, i am not trying to get anyone to fucking like him dude, that's the same as me saying you are trying to get people to dislike him. shut the fuck up. your opinions are opinions[/b}, man. stop telling me how i think or how i'm trying to make you think or, even how i talk. this is the fucking internet dude, you are reading my words & you are trying to tell me what i'm saying? you guys talk about social problems & how that is what ruins forrest's personality but, you motherfuckers lurk slap 24/7 in your dark dungeon of a room..... how anti-social is that? stop trying to pinpoint other people's problems fool & lay off the porn

Forrest skates drops.?� It makes me sad because he does it so fucking well!?� You'd think he'd jump outside his box and take his awesome somewhere else... like a ledge, or a curb... maybe a mini-ramp.

After this contest he'll disappear into skateboarding obscurity, just watch.

seems like he skates more than just drops to me

Not much.
dude you've seen 2 videos of him that were both a minute long man... the one handrail they went to in this shit he did the best trick on, the one ledge they skated he did the best trick on (besides a fucking a bank to ledge"� how are you going to say "he skates nothin but drops " & hate on that when you all dickride reynolds & other people who mainly skate gaps. just shut up & stop trying to find things to hate on it's not working. you're being a dickrider by trying to find random things to talk shit about like everyone else

You're just a live one aren't ya? Okay, stop, take a breath... think and retype when you have a clue, spazz-hands!  Holy fuck!  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Ok. From now on I will not judge anybody by what they say or do until I have had a proper dinner (more than just soup) with them and been introduced to their parents.
 I can easily judge this dude, and it seems like plenty of others have as well. When you put yourself out as an asshole, people are going to think you are an asshole.
This dude forget a basic rule of life- make sure to leave a good first impression, because it may be the only impression you ever leave. Its not like Forrest get's special rules because he can big flip double sets.
Honestly, I think a big reason Forrest is a dick is that lame kids like shouldn't won't tell him he's being a prick because they are too busy worshipping his skateboard abilities and acting like his dickhead side doesn't matter.

lol i was mostly referring to the judging based on what his friend says bit. people are crazy different in real life from what they say online, i mean, i bet we would all get along and not talk shit in real life, we all already obviously have a lot in common since skateboarding is usually a pretty big part of someones life (especially if they post on skateboard message boards)

like if i hated someone on here (and i dont), and met them in real life, im pretty sure we'd get along.

Professional skateboarders are essentially performance artists - they perform for our entertainment. You can try to argue it, but it's true. I enjoy watching Forrest skate and I can't wait to hear what comes out of his mouth next. In other words, he is the most entertaining and deserves to win. Granted, I enjoy Reuben's skating the most, but if it came down to watching 3 minutes of his skating footage or watching Forrest skate for one minute and talk for two, I'd most likely go with the latter.

and based on a lot of comments/the insane amount of attention forrest is getting, I'd bet there is definitely a market for him, maybe not to you, but there's clearly a lot of fans. hell, he could probably just come out with a dvd of him just talking and people would buy it just to see what he says.

Dude just has his own opinions, and I don't think that necessarily markets well for people to support him or his brand that he rides for.

Also Forrest being in this contest or show makes him more acceptable for people to like him. If it was in a different scenario, I think we would think different of the guy.

yeah being pro is about being marketable, but who says idiot assholes can't be marketable? antwuan has probably made his companies so much fucking money, despite being the biggest idiot/asshole...

antwuan turned into an asshole after he turned pro.
forrest has been an complete asshole straight out the gate.

and regardless of what you think, theres nothing marketable about cocky.

It's not that he says it after he gets props for a trick. He says it after everything.  He believes saying thank you after everything makes you humble, which is totally false.

Forrest Edwards is the only one who looks like he belongs as a sponsored skateboarder. Aside from his tricks and style, he's not bright eyed like the rest of them. It's ok that he doesn't want to be friends with everyone; he left his friends behind and now he's in a competition. To me it seems like he takes the contest the most seriously, which I like.

yeah, in fact i think what Forrest was getting at is that it's actually the opposite. saying "thank you" when someone says cool shirt about a shirt that you just handed is like you taking too much credit for something you had no part in and didn't even pick out..

get off his dick already. the guy is clearly the best skater in the contest but he is an asshole so he wont win, simple as that. if you cant see that you are an idiot. being a pro is about almost completely other shit besides being good at actual skateboarding.

yeah being pro is about being marketable, but who says idiot assholes can't be marketable? antwuan has probably made his companies so much fucking money, despite being the biggest idiot/asshole...

antwuan turned into an asshole after he turned pro.
forrest has been an complete asshole straight out the gate.

and regardless of what you think, theres nothing marketable about cocky.
   

firstly, how do you know that antwuan wasn't already an asshole? secondly, if so, that's even lamer.

and ever heard of, any publicity is good publicity? if you take that concept into account combined with the incredible talent that the kid has, i would say he's pretty marketable. basically he has the talent part down, but he also has a very strong personality that makes him stand out, sounds like a winning combination to me.

but fuck it this is just speculation, i guess in the end we'll just have to wait and see.

I dunno from watching his clips in this and his sponsor me tape I'd still say he's extremely talented.. maybe not at alot of different types of skating but all the shit i seen him do was pretty sick.. especially the one where he's skating that awkward concrete park with the yellow handrail...

Balls and Talent aren't the same but if it was a case of him having balls without talent then he would've been broken off the first day skating that double set. If you just go deep with no skill you get destroyed too much especially trying the type of tricks he does.. nollie front crook hollywood 12? If you weren't extremely good you'd get fucking assassinated on that.

I thought forrest might have had something for that bank to ledge spot, but his ender made up for it. it's kinda easy to see him not winning even though he's busting the best shit down stuff.

I'm sure the parameters of the contest have something to do with well-roundednes. Whiteley? What exactly are the parameters?

It upsets me that everyone, including Whiteley, consistently makes too much of this kid. He's not some evil genius, skateboard antihero mastermind, and he's not some tortured skateboard genius. He's just really, really stupid. I'd wager a guess that most everyone in his immediate family and neighborhood is pretty unintelligent as well. Stupid people tend to make themselves look stupid, especially when placed in front of a camera, as he has done repeatedly.
In this case, the stupid is coupled, unfortunately, with being really, really good at skateboarding. Skateboarders tend to make him something he isn't because we'd all of course like to think that one cannot become amazing at skateboarding if he is also an idiot, which, also unfortunately, is false. Everyone knows what happens when you put really talented and really stupid together. You either get a complete knobhead asshole, or a reflexively politee goof. So basically, you either get Forrest Edwards or Forest Gump.

the plan was yes, but there was some problem with the file export which may delay it until tomorrow. the guy with all the drives is on a plane from the east coast (where the editing is happening) to the west coast right now, so we can't access the episodes. if we can get it fixed without having to re-export ,it will go up today, if not it'll be tomorrow morning. nothing coming for friday as it's christmas eve, then a new one coming monday-- it's a long one and will be the only one going up for next week.

I'm sure the parameters of the contest have something to do with well-roundednes. Whiteley? What exactly are the parameters?

there were no binding legal parameters drawn up for selection, but tricks, style, attitude and overall approach are all components, in varying degrees of importance and priority. how's that for vague?

I'd wager a guess that most everyone in his immediate family and neighborhood is pretty unintelligent as well.

It's actually giving Forrest a pretty big benefit of the doubt to assume there is a reason for his stupidity. His environment was probably a pretty big influence on him, which actually makes me feel for him a little tiny bit more instead of just hating him. And it's just fucking retarded to say that there are any implications having anything to do with race about that. Of course I knew people would think that, but it's not even worth addressing. Also, you yourself are probably making the assumption that I'm white, which I'm not.

There are definitely exception to the rules on both sides. I grew up in the burbs and one of my friends that had the nicest parents and a pretty decent childhood upbringing ended up being a drug dealer and has been in jail for the last 8 years or so. And I know people that grew up in bad parts in the Bay Area (Richmond) and they went off to a 4 year college and are making a decent living to this day. Surroundings only plays a part in certain people's upbringing but there are so much more to it like parenting, money, friends, schooling, etc. I am sure there is a reason why Forrest is the way he is but it's a touchy subject to assume when you don't know.

And you know what they say, if it quacks like a duck, it's a duck. I know his personality and intelligence as well as is possible from watching a few interview webclips, and he seems like a dumbass. I'd be happy to go find some examples, but it probably wouldn't matter, I'm pretty familiar with your posts.

This is what's wrong with you clowns. Just because someone doesn't speak proper english doesn't make them stupid. You have to looks at the concepts and ideas that are conveyed in what they say. You're the type of clown that can't see the forrest for the trees. From what I've seen he's way smarter than most of the dudes on there. He realizes that saying thank you all the time doesn't make you nice, and he was the only one that realized that the bar rueben kickflipped over was actually really low.

Boiltheocean posted this earlier today.

**I have yet to watch a single episode of this because I just haven't had the time.  I'm now curious since BTO posted about.

Is Forrest Edwards The Reality-TV Villain We?ve Been Waiting For?

(http://boiltheocean.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/forrest.jpg?w=450&h=251)

Pity the eventual winner of Slap Magazine?s ?One In A Million? contest, for this lucky young man will forever be doomed to push in the long, unsmiling shadow cast by Forrest Edwards, the switchstancer from Riverside who almost immediately cemented a position as the breakout character from what has become a sort of ?America?s Next Top Flow Kid.? Aged 18 or 19 years and already a master of the lefthanded compliment, Forrest Edwards is estimated by scholars to have come of age right around January 8, 2004, when a younger and more tender U.S. populace met and introduced itself to a onetime political consultant named Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, villainess of Donald Trump?s initial run of ?The Apprentice.? A lesson told in nine weeks: negative attitude, abrasive behavior and ?not here to make friends? mindset buys notoriety that is worth its weight in American Idol text-messages.

Mango, the free-spirited ditch skater with the bad haircut, does not make Forrest Edwards laugh. Switch backside heelflipping a solid set of stairs does not crack his lips into a smile. Cigarette dangling dangerously from his mouth, Forrest Edwards broods and bides his time on those occasions when a handrail, double-set or ledge is not within reach. He?s not sorry that he broke Daryl Angel?s deck and transition is for old people and those intent on wasting an opportunity to carve out a piece of the lucrative sponsorship pie. He knows the names of the forgotten reality TV gods like Puck and Richard Hatch who long ago painted on television?s cave-walls the arcane lore, if you are not on-screen, you at least ought to be spoken of, and damn the consequences.

The web-evolution of the ?One In A Million? contest has birthed a camera-ready series that, with a bit more coverage of after-hours chill/party sessions, could stand alongside all your ?America?s Next Top Models? or ?Real World Road Rules Challenges? in terms of painfully earnest moments of self-realization, product placement and shoehorned-in celeb cameos. In Forrest Edwards they have an Omarosa figure in spades, as he explains how he makes it all look so easy while making a run at being skating?s most divisive figure of 2010 ? a tall order against the likes of Jereme Rogers, Brian Wenning, Antwuan Dixon and Shane O?Neill.

But do our times call for a Forrest Edwards? Following a decade marked by the rise of the Tilt Mode, Daewon Song?s goofy genius, assorted Jackassery and the Odd Couple stylings of Rob and Big, might Forrest Edwards? unshakeable discontent be an antidote for too much fun? Dead-eyed and silent, Forrest Edwards seems to look upon a skateboard as a tool useful for proving his worth Mark Whiteley, his OIAM rivals and the world in general, comfortable with the sexual orientation of his go-to tricks and equally at ease when doling out quotables or bigspin-flipping stairs. Our nation?s economic house of credit cards in shambles and the prospect of a long economic slog ahead, Forrest Edwards? single-minded fixation upon the prize serves to remind us that none of this is a game, that he is not playing around, even when brazenly choosing not to skate at any given time and instead offer advice on personal conduct or a balanced diet.

COTG, I'm not gonna debate you any more. I've made my point and it stands. I've seen how you post, you're the best troll I've ever seen and I know I won't win against you no matter how dumb the underlying points of your arguments are (Forrest expressing greater ideas through his misunderstanding of the meaning of English words and by hating on other people's skating). And your arguments ARE wrong, but I know I'd never win against you so it's not really worth it. You have trolling down to a science.

Whiteley, I'm sure you know him better than I do. But what I've seen of him is the OIAM episodes, and he comes off as a stupid, arrogant, ignorant child. You can't honestly feel that you wouldn't have the same impression after watching those episodes and seeing nothing else of Forrest so don't give me that shit. Also, no, I'm not implying that you have to be white to be racist. I just know that kid was assuming I'm some white suburban kid who knows nothing about growing up in a bad neighborhood.

Also, sorry I'm super slow to reply, my connection is insanely faulty and slow.

i was not giving you shit for having an impression of forrest based on what you have seen of him, i was "giving you shit" for your very assuming  statements about his family and neighborhood (not town, difference noted). i'm not defending what forrest says or does in any way. the way he conducts himself is not the way i would conduct myself, not by a long shot. but labeling him "stupid" does not really define his character, and labeling his family and surroundings as such by association is just presumptuous.
done with that on my end.

Fair enough. But I honestly don't see it as too presumptuous to assume his environment is reflected in him. I think that's pretty much a given. I feel like the issue is really me not saying it in nice enough terms. But I don't really care much for being nice to that kind of people. People like him give the rest of us a bad name.

Holy fuck Kapp shut up already.

The only thing more awkward than Jake Phelps is Joe Brook trying to be Jake Phelps.  Though Mango should man up and film.

Tommy and Tim were irrelevant, that time could've been spent showing skating or the actual contestants.  I feel like there's probably so much entertaining interview and skate footy that won't see the light of day.

Forrest rules.

no.
you've obviously not traveled or taken any psychology at all...ever. peoples' environment is what shapes them, true, but the way that it's effects surface could be direct opposites and often are. go anywhere on earth and you'll see the same cross section of personalities as anywhere else. fact. plus, it's almost a cliche nowadays for the rich kids to act/dress broke and the broke kids being the flashiest. i mean antwuan and theotis are from the same background, so c'mon son. get outta here with that, "it's a given" shit. you know nothing about human development.

People like him give the rest of us a bad name.

us who? don't go trying to put yourself on the same level as the average slap poster on the sly. just lurk more, and next time think first dumbass.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

now that that's said, Forrest killed it again. on and off the mic this time. i like how he actually rattled off every dope trick that went down before saying that joe gets the mvp for the photo. at least he's paying attention when he's not skating. that shit counts. the rest of them kinda voted on the buddy system. and did you see the little smile he let out at the end? i think that dude is probably just playing up his personality for the contest. i like him more now than ever. actually, the only thing that he's done so far that made me really be like, "that was fucked up" was the not thanking two dudes for loaning you a board after you broke them shits. that was hella weak, but all the shit talking and other verbal stuff, i think, is just funny as fuck. i get the impression he probably does too.

the part with mango's interview got me kinda stoked to see him step up. from what brook said, it sounds like he was actually ripping all day and got a lot of stuff, but wouldn't skate for the camera. i was under the impression that he just didn't get anything and that's why the footy was missing, this makes me interested in him again.

Mango is clearly the dumbest of all of them, but he's charming in that way. Forrest isn't a dummy in the traditional sense, though it seems like he might have aspergers or something with his horrible ability to deal with people around him.

I kind of like Forrest more after that episode. Is it odd that I have never seen nor thought of opening a wine bottle with a power drill? Its a pretty badass move, and clearly proof that the kid is resourceful at least. Also, his end of the day discussion was him mostly talking dudes up, talking about a lot of shit other people did and all that.

everybody in his family and town are unintelligent? that's a pretty bold guesstimation to make.

Why? Intelligence is influenced tremendously by heredity and the environment where a kid grows up. Dumbasses don't just pop out of no where. People reflect their environments. Besides, I said most, immediate, and neighborhood, don't change the wording to make it sound more outlandish, it really isn't.

No, there are no innate qualities that make people stupid. You believing that however, does make you stupid.




Edit: These episodes just keep getting better.

Not that I want to side with that asshole at all, since I don't think Forrest actually is unintelligent, but what about downs syndrome or other forms of developmental disability? There definitely is innate intelligence, that is, the ability to learn quickly or not, though with extra work almost anybody can become very smart and well-read.

Of course those are biological factors. But they are biolological abnormalities and not actually from your heritage. When I hear people talk about heredity and intellegence there are usually linking it to race, which is bullshit. Even if they aren't talking about race it's still incorrect, you can't have "stupid gene" passed down to you.
