SKATERS THAT ARE OTHER SKATERS
« on: July 09, 2018, 02:48:19 AM »
I was watching Brandon Turner's guilty part due to the new nine club episode and was thinking how it would be a goldmine for a board company if there was another Turner on the scene right now. Then I remembered that Kevin Bradley exists.

I then came up with a brilliant idea for a thread topic.

Which pros of the current crop are closest in style or relevancy to guys like Templeton, Saari, Penny, Mountain, Reynolds etc...?

Is Chris Cole still the new Jamie Thomas?

Also Brandon Turner in guilty.

chris wimer is jon allie reincarnate.

i sometimes get kenny reed vibes from watching ryan lay. that super long moroccan ledge that ryan back 50s in his etnies' album part seems like a spot that kenny would have scouted out during one of those on video magazine postcards from the road.

bloodonmydick is definitely knox godoy. both came hot onto the scene with that idgaf attitude only to flame out in what seemed like mere minutes.

Dressing like Kalis did 20+ years ago does NOT make those dudes anywhere near the "new Kalis". There isn't a new Kalis but if there was someone keeping true to what they're about, doing things For The Culture© and keeping things strictly plaza while staying at the top of the list of 3 flippers well that'd be Bobby Worrest.

Absolutely fucking not. Joslin does Big ass shit but has shitty doo doo meth midget style. Reynolds does everything with finesse and pizazz. Donít ever try and tarnish Reynolds skateboarding like that again.

Nah, Grant = Cards

Raney fits better. Heís got the Cardiel arms and he gives the same impression of always being on the edge of control.

Grant makes it all look too easy. Even though Grantís obviously still current and killing it I think you could say Oski = Grant.

Ok hold on...

No offense to Kevin Bradley but Brandon Turner was so much better than him. Emphasis on ďwasĒ. Iíd say the only similarity they have is skin color.

And Cody Cepeda won battle at the berrics and is still not good enough to go pro. Joslin is great donít get me wrong but I would never compare him to Reynolds. Having a deep bag of tricks isnít everything.

zion is a mini budget ishod

Absolutely not. Zion has a relaxed natural style while Zion is more of the athletic guy. Just because they are both black and hang out?

Iíve heard a few people compare Wes Kramer to Penny based on natural ability but not style wise I suppose.

I always thought of Vincent Alvarez as the new Ben Sanchez.

Westgate was kinda like a new Barley at one time.

I donít think these comparisons really work if the older counterpart is still not only skating, but in some cases more relevant. (I think Jamie Thomas is more relevant than Chris Cole.)

Ishod and Koston is the best comparison. Universally loved extroverts who can skate everything well and people around them overlook their dorkiness (Ishod is less corny than Koston though).
