if you feel inclined to "appreciate" Brad Hayes, at least provide some photos or links to one of his parts. Otherwise this whole affair is pointless.

I think he's pretty good, although I only saw a tiny bit of his footy from the Baker videos.

Yeah I liked his stuff in BAKER2G when it came out in the early millenium. He was on Lethol skateboards at that point, I was going through old thrashers from back then and he had a couple ads. Man I really watched the shit out of those old baker video's, but I can't stand baker 3

He is alright, he has an okay 411 part and a part in an old acme video. He gets alot more respect now that he is gone but a career based on pop-shuvit nose manuals and backside 180 manuals is sort of boring.

His Baker 2G part was sick or was it the first Baker video?

It should also be pointed out that he skates really slow too and that is never a good thing

I always liked Brad Hayes.  It would have been sick if he got on Baker.

He has a gross hunchback style and skates way too slow.

yeah the dude does skate slow as fuck, and the heavyset hunchback stee.
trick-wise he did some unique shit. all i can really remember right now is some old 411 fakie ollie over a double sided ledge to switch front crook.  pretty rad.
bottom line is that tricks dont matter when they look like doodoo.
still think its rad that dudeman got a Baker part based on bro-dealer status

i think his fakie switch nosemanual tre at courthouse still remains the best, he did stevie williams AND russ milligans tricks and put them together 5 or 6, maybe 7 years before

hayes to me was one of the collest dudes ever. so fuckin hillarious to skate with; a character indeed. yes he didn t skate too fast and had a hunchback style, but still there s something that came across when he skated, especially when you saw him in person.

he did a lot of stuff you didn t see at the time; not even now. ledge and mannywise ahead of his time. baker should have taken care of him.

I definitley thought that guy was gross to watch, like a huge slow steve caballero trying to skate manual pads.

note: cab is a legend but hes got hunch style
