Title: What ever happened to Lindsey Robertson & Ryan Smith
Post by: Disco234 on April 01, 2014, 07:33:25 AM
I Know Ryan Smith got in a super gnar motorcycle wreck. I guess that ended his professional career? Did Lyndsey just disappear? I wonder if they both still skate at all? Both were so good!

Certain skaters never skated for attention which may be impossible for some dudes to believe

I'm sure somewhere in there is a joke about their careers being a mystery.

lindsey was from the same area i was in FL. from what I understand he just took under Jamies wing, jumped down a bunch of ridiculously big shit until he blew his knees out and had to get surgery. after that he was no more.

I just remembered the Mystery Promo in New Blood https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5sm4IhIH4w (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5sm4IhIH4w)

that part with Sandoval and Cole definitely helped justifying why New Blood was ever released!

Robertson lost his heelflipping abilities and has been under the radar after a severe crotch rash from an allergic reaction to the baby wipes he used to use religiously.
