Sean Pablo does not get to be on the same company as Gino and AVE in any dimension of reality.

I think I've read at least two people defend Sean Pablo in this thread. That is two too many.

I agree, it seriously bums me out when I have to explain to one of my friends why I think he sucks.

I know someone is gonna say Nyjah or someone who is actually really good, but I want your opinion. Which pro has the least amount of actual ability on a skateboard and why.


I'll start it off: Sean Pablo.
I think Sean has his place in pro skateboarding. He's a big influence on people and he is actually a good skateboarder.
He does good tricks with good style.
I think a skateboarder who doesn't have "talent" is a skateboarder with no creativity.
There's fucking plenty of those

The people saying Sean Pablo, which is pretty much everyone, have obviously never seen him skate in person. The dude is seriously good, has a big bag of tricks, and pops everything he does hella high. Iíve watched him play games of skate at Tompkins, and was honestly surprised at how good he is. He simply chooses to film the same tricks over and over, but heís capable of so much more. Tricks Iíd never expected him to do, like switch inward heelflips, switch bigflips, Rickflips, and really proper hardflips, he did well and with style. He can do almost every flat ground trick, but for some reason, never gets them on film. Heís really consistent too. One day I watched him switch flip a trash can, over and over again, with a totally proper flick/catch. He gets a bad rep, but itís undeserved. Granted, the River Phoenix ripoff gets a tad old and he probably shouldnít ever do an impossible again, but if weíre strictly talking about skill, heís nowhere near the bottom.

I know Iíll get kooked for saying this, but Sean Pablo is way better than Aiden Mackey, skill wise. I know the kids love him,  and he can do no wrong in their eyes, but Iíve just never been that impressed by his skating. Heís good at fakie manuals, Iíll give him that, but his bag of tricks is pretty small. Donít get me wrong, I like the dude, but skill wise, heís the worst pro on 917. Vincent and Hugo are both INSANE, but Aiden is more popular. Sage is kind of a one trick pony with a small bag of tricks, but nobody is hating on him.

So smash that kook button if you must. I know Iím alone with my opinions. Thatís what makes skating so dope though, right? We can disagree, but unless youíre Nyjah, weíre all in this together.

Pretty much anyone on magenta, besides ben gore, jimmy lannon and soy

I love Magenta but this is too true.

I'm still surprised they did a guest board with Carlos Young. Seems like a cool dude who can at least navigate SF hills, but idk if he can do much else (unless I'm missing something).
What you're missing is Carlos is in his mid-forties and still street skating for the love. He's an OG Bay Area skater and has done his fair share of gnarly skating. (Big flip the long flat gap at SF library). Plus he has great style and is a solid person.

With regards to Sean Pablo. He is the most underrated skater of this generation, and does not get his fucking due. Kid rips so properly, but he does do some week shit along with his gnarly stuff. What I feel anyone who wants to talk shit on his skating, go watch his purple part with absolutely no sound, look at the tricks heís doing and think about how fucking gnarly some of that shit he did was, and he honestly pulled it off with decent style. The problem with him is he puts like a banger out, and then itís like a few weaker clips in between. Iím sure he will just have stronger clip strength coming thru in the future. Kids what like 21?

I get that itís cool to hate on Swan, and he certainly doesnít do himself any favors earning respect. But I honestly donít know where the idea that heís bad at skating comes from. Forget the outfits or his ďimageĒ, the dude rips. Watch him skate in person, then tell me he canít shred. Iím not saying heís the best, or anywhere close to the best, but heís nowhere near the bottom. Him and TK are light years apart.

This is basically four pages of TK vs Swan. Tie.

One finding from this thread can be that a large amount of people on SLAP think that doing simple tricks or not skating big rails means someone's not talented. i.e. the idiot who said Nestor Judkins is the "worst pro". ???
Been lurking here for awhile way before I even started posting and this place sure ain't what it used to to be.

Chris Roberts may have had one of the weakest TWS parts in their video history. Granted, Iím not too familiar with the last couple that came out but still, Iíll never forget the line, nollie pop shuvit up the curb then 5-0 front shuv on a tiny up ledge.

Aidan started the 917 video with a lenghty three song part (okay filled up with some drunken footage) but still that part is longer than SP's fucking career.

Pablo's part in purple starts with some attempts on a boardslide and Strobeck had allready put out that footage on instagram months ago. And SP never landed the trick, I don't care if he made it and they put the footage out on the supreme full lenght, they're just fucking milking it out
Just shred some serious gnar.

If TKís name didnít possibly sell boards heíd of gotten that cut at Baker 5 years ago along with the rest of those dudes that still deserve to have their name on a board over him. With the exception of Shane maybe.
For whatever reason I feel like theyíre about to do that again and cut a few people. Their team is getting kind of crowded, and there are some guys on there that I just canít imagine get them that many board sales.

Since people keep berating Sean Pablo for "skating a six stair" for his ender, I assure you that rail is fucking tall and mellow as shit, not to mention stubby. Basically an over-waist-high flatbar set down some stairs. The fact that he back lipped that, and slid as much as he did, is impressive.

Hating on Sean Pablo has grown more annoying than Sean Pablo, himself. Is he the best? Of course not. Is he the worst? Also no.

Eye Sect Monster or whatever your name is, since you seem to have such a hard-on for anything that falls into "generic so-cal rail skating," care to comment on TK's trick down a seven-stair skatepark hubba in his Baker 3 part?

Also, how the fuck has no one said Neen Williams yet? Or did I miss that?

back in my day, barker barrett looked like shit on 'skate and destroy'.
more recently TK and SP the ghost. i like shawn powers but i think it's cause his skating is mostly relatable [sometimes he'll do something over a trash can to remind us he's good if he wants].
jeremy klein used to irk me too, never skated switch, came out of bs noseblunts like lipslides. used his hands on street.

What, the two foot tall rail straight to flat that any sixteen-year-old flow kid could do at the time? Reeeally impressive. That, his bag of roughly ten tricks, and his proclivity to film single tricks on knee high ledges puts him in the running, for sure.

I just watched his Deathwish Video part, and I gotta say I disagree with this call (though I acknowledge that these things are subjective).
