i remember him tearing up slam city jam last century, faster than everyone back then, one of the first atv styles, a term that doesn't really mean anything now I guess.

That '90s goatee in the New Deal vid. I just remember his huge 50 50s from the mags. Didn't even realize he skated tranny like that. Didn't he grind some even more insane rails than those featured in these parts? I vaguely remember some absurd round kinked ones.

If you haven't seen his Scarecrow part (came out at least 4 or 5 years after "7 Year Glitch"), you should check it out. Edited horribly, filmed like crap, bad music, great skating.

It has the most unsung ender that does not make sense. The angles don't do it justice, but I am sure you all can gather it is nuts.
