This guy is severely underrated and was skating gaps 15 years ago that people still aren't touching today.

One of the best and a favorite growing up. I don't know why he isn't talked about more.

Or the same gaps are getting switch 360 flipped by unknowns on instagram (wild guess). I'm curious if Diego's gaps have held up with the current progression in skateboarding, or if they've gone the way of the Dany Wainwright/Reese Forbes ollie, in that everyone can ollie that high now.

My first deck was a Diego Bucchieri Toy Machine deck.

He did a double set back in 1999 that no one stepped up to again until Ryan Decenzo more than a decade later.

That ender in Good and Evil. Might get some heat for this but I think he's the only other skater that could have tried and done the Lyon 25 (without grabbing).
