How the hell did you guys end up discussing Reynolds in this thread?

to get back on track, I always thought Kenny Reed's tricks seemed like they did not take too much talent to do. He did, however, have a great talent for finding spots! What happened to Reed, by the way? I miss Reed. Give me some Reed, please.

I dunno if it would be blasphemous but mentioning Gall here would be plain stupid.  He DID change the game to a major degree the 1st 3 years he came out and he STILL is good.  He's got a solid style and I'm sure he'll keep going.

Instagram photographer? You're so far off, you have no idea what I do. What's so hard to believe about what I said? Like I said, I wasn't trying to brag, It was just to show how increidebly untalented  TK is.

If I send you the footage showing me skate the rail with a freshly opened beer along with proof that I hadn't skated for 2 years before that night will you apologize to me for being a fucboi, focus your account and never  post on slap again? Let me know. Might as well focus and save yourself the embarrassment.

I'd argue it really depends on the company, Pablo probably got the pro pass with it being more of a homies/friends brand, very tight knit and he came up with all those dudes and it'd be bad on him not being turned pro when all the people he skates with 24/7 got their own boards etc. Is he on the same level as someone pro for say Zero? Not at all but the same could be applied to alot of people on Magenta and other brands but then it starts leading back to equating being pro to having to be jumping up on rails or down big shit for a board/shoes/etc when at the end of the day being pro is getting paid to skate and promoting the companies who back/promote you which Sean Pablo does fairly well; might not like him/his outfits/etc but he (objectively) has a good style, a decent bag of tricks (albeit rinsed on every spot) and a decent following whereas TK just gets roasted for posting mediocre skatepark kid shit and his most memorable footage is him talking shit.
I think you meant subjectively.
