The dude kickflip frontside wallriding dumpsters and boardsliding chains?

Yes, youíve identified the correct person.

Also, Iíve never seen a Jim Gagne trick that wasnít gross looking.

I honestly barely know who SP is. TK gets my vote, i watched him battle a crook down a skatepark rail for at least 20 minutes during a supra demo. some local 12 year old snaked him and did it first try. it was beautiful

Far from relevant

I think theres alot of confusion about the difference between style and talent/ability. Lets take Jaws for example, wretched style but I feel what he does takes alot more physical effort and skill then what say Sean Pablo does.

Was that dude Jub that rode for Black Label pro?  Itís funny how I think about that video Label Kills and how it has both some of my favorite and least favorite skating all jammed together. 

I sniff Jim Gagne's butthole all the time

Even in his prime- Stevie Williams was a pro flat ground skater, with some ledge shit sprinkled in between.

Amazing style, but easily one of the least versatile street proís.

Idk, the guy also skated manual pads, picnic tables, benches, stairs, etc. Don't know too many guys that could do that ender. SMH

I grew up around his area and before Gagne got on the Label, in his younger years, he definitely had a good style. Being hesh and aggro definitely did not help him. Gagne was sick back in the days.

I mean this was TK's old firing line from 2005 when he was pro. So.....



There's no way that that's it. Is that it?

Well at least he did some difficult fakie tricks down rails.

Reynolds. He's a small bag of tricks, and skate the same ol spots over and over again since after The End.

are you fucking kidding?! Reynolds has every trick in the book. go watch any of his parts and actually WATCH. dude is easily top 3 GOAT.



Sorry but imo, if Reynolds had produced so many distinguished tricks, please name a part where he ended it with a trick other than a basic trick down some stairs.

He can do other stuff, but if it isn't a frontside flip, backside flip, kickflip, or some kind of cab, it is filler that is put in more to show off his "variety" than actually to show something growth in skateboarding. Take away that, and he wouldn't have made it. With his formula, he's considered a legend.

Here are his enders:
The End: Frontside flip 14
Baker 2G: Frontside flip 15
This is Skateboarding: Frontside flip 16
Baker 3: Cab the same set he already frontside flipped at the end of 2G
Stay Gold: Kickflip

How come with every video part, he comes out with an ender that is the same? You'd think he would have some "variety", right? He doesn't, because although he can do a lot of tricks, he's only great at a few. Everybody on the list above can do a lot of tricks, but you see them go back to certain ones over and over again, just like Reynolds.

Reynolds has a nice flick and has great control over huge gaps, but trick selection isn't one of his best attributes. He just tends to use a specific group of tricks. Honestly, Moz was right recently when he had said,

"Most of them were limited in their skills. They would only do like 3 tricks and jump down stuff all the time. Most of it was fisheye too so all of the stuff they were jumping down wasnít as big or long as it looked. You have to remember that the action heroes are less than 2%, and the rest are posers. Most people only have like 4 tricks and they call themselves professional skateboarders."

I love Reynolds. I think he's great at what he does, and I am a fan. However the question is, what has he brought into skating? His "progression" is purely mathematical. It is particularly bad because people like Koston, Guy, MJ, Daewon, and Marisa has brought some insane stuff to the table.

Koston and MJ genuinely can do anything. Every NBD they do becomes the new hot trick, has Reynolds ever even done a trick that hasn't been done yet? That puts them in their own league. Influential even.

I understand where you are coming from. I just respectfully disagree.

Yes, I am serious. Again, Reynolds is great, and I am a fan of his. It's just he doesn't have that much variety in tricks. I critique my favorites all the time when they do something underwhelming, I am not a blind fanboy. He also did do a kickflip backside noseslide down a UCI hubba in the End, which was better.

Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

Reynolds did like every trick you could name in Baker 3.  He has also proven to everyone as of recently that he can skate low impact shit very well too. Even his battle commander had a lot of different variety in it.  Also, some of these basic tricks youíre referring to is down some of the gnarliest shit. Kickflip down Davis gap and full cab down Wilshire is nothing short of impressive.

Also your statement about his ďfiller tricksĒ makes no sense really.  How else is he going to show everyone that he can do other things other than the usual tricks he does?  His skating has aged like fine wine and he is better now than ever.

But the answer to this lame question is either Danny Minnick or Doug Saenz.

Donít forget that Richard Jefferson had a board on I&I skateboards with Nyah


Iíd still rather watch TK do fakie (insert trick name) then a lot of other skaters.
