Can't get into it either but the front 3 on the steep brick bank and back 3 at Southbank were very cool.

He's def one of the gnarliest out rn. I honestly expected more after the halfcab back Smith

Anybody else remember when it was a stereotype that black people didn't do rails? When did that change?

growing up i remember seeing guys like sheffey, alphonso rawls, and kevin taylor skate rails, so this stereotype is something ive never heard/thought of.

i usedta believe that but i threw it to my friend who goes 'you're just thinking of lil stevie and a few other folks [pat washington, karl watson, jovontae]' and then he started naming black skaters that went for it from ray barbee to gershon to sheffey to kenny hughes.
i think i was counting wiggers like rob welsh and josh kalis as black or like lumping 'hip hop manual skaters' together.

Does anyone remember which 411 or Logic that second song was in?  I think it might have been a slower version that was used.

Edit: Just found it.  Turns out it was from 411 #45 and it was the 411 Snowboarding commercial lol.  https://youtu.be/uxBpU6jcqp0?t=18m15s

always thought it was funny to see the little kid dancing in that commercial. that issue of 411 was cool, mike v sure did check his emails a lot.

I think its that he has a high technical ability but no creativity and a bland style. Pair that with constantly wearing the poison shit hat because of a contract and heís not exactly Gonz, Quim, Huf, or any of the guys from the generation when real was actually cool.
Now deluxe is just bland jocks and woman beaters, how the mighty have fallen.

My feelings on Zion are mixed, but know heís talented. He reminds me of a late-era Zero rider- like, I know the stuff he is doing is gnarly, but its unrelatable and lacks emotion.
Like, unless you are grinding up the rail, I never ever want to see another ender at hollywood high.

An athlete is a go-to criticism when you don't have a reason for liking someone really good. I don't care for Shane O'Neil but saying it's because he's an athlete seems like a cop-out. All skaters are athletes. This kid has the best fs big spin and can kill anything.

damn some fucked up shit in their, i enjoy watching it but for me it's not super relateable cos i can't comprehend how is doing any of that shit.

"Athlete Vibe" is one of the dumbest things i've ever heard.  i guess he can do it in dickies and punk bands shirts from 20-30 years ago to alleviate that.  maybe have his keys on his belt loop.

People who criticize Shane O'Neill's skating by and large don't know what they're saying

he should wear a hat that doesn't allow him to make a living as a pro skateboarder.

Don't forget Kareem. His Trilogy part had a ton of rails.

Edit: while we are on the topic, 2 of the first 3 kink rails done were by Sheffey and Tyrone Olson. If you believe Steve Celentani's date on that video, Tyrone's might have even been before Gonz?

Edit 2: when I paste Steve's Facebook link it embeds the video but makes all the text in my comment disappear. Add this to the end of Facebook.com

Lots of dumb shit in this thread
-"black people used to not skate rails."  (WTF is that)
-"athlete vibe" (his skating speaks for itself the jock is the one who cares so much about fits and cant look past it)
-"I personally dont like Shane O'Neil but..." (I'm more of a ATV type guy personally and I love Shane, everyone should)
-"0 switch tricks" (who fucking cares when you skate everything and do it big and fast)
-"a poor mans Bastien"-(they skate nothing alike at all).

I THOUGHT ONE OF THE 1ST TRICKS WAS A SWITCH BACK TAIL IN THOSE YELLOW SNEAKERS ???

EITHER WAY I TURNED THAT SHIT OFF AFTER THE 2ND BIG L SONG KICKS IN

I HATE WHEN SKATE VIDEOS HAVE THE SAME SONGS..

THERE IS FAR TOO MUCH GREAT MUSIC OUT THERE TO BE USING THE SAME SHIT
