matt beach did it on a rail.

oh shit, i forgot about that. that was pretty rad, and on a rail with a kink in the middle, no less. matt beach was so good, i still have the poster of the switch kickflip shifty off a bump that came with the transworld with his interview in it

still, if im remembering right, that was kinda a fat square rail situation. doing it on a round rail is a whole different thing

It's great to see some early 90's tricks done big and with a little style. The problem with that era wasn't the technical tricks, but the fact we were doing them at 2 miles an hour dressed like clowns.

That right there could be more future than past.

Then again, my reaction would be completely different if that were Tyrone Olson.



im really tired of reading bullshit like this. when did guy mariano ever do some "early 90s tricks" without style? the problem with every era is that crappy people are in videos, the 90s had some of the best skating there was. everything was being discovered then. you can diss it now because you are living on its coattails, but most little kids out now do not contribute style or originality to skateboarding in any of the ways these guys did. just watch questionable, trilogy, 20 shot sequence, and any h street video before lick and you will see an intensity and creativity in skateboarding that we have yet to see again. start thinking before you diss the 90s because chris fissel and the new deal crew did not represent the best of what was actually going on and most of the shit out now is garbage.

I wouldn't be as harsh to use the word garbage, but uninspired is more along the lines.
A lot of stuff has been done and people kinda forget and then someone does something and it's new again.
The stuff Kareem,Gino,Dill,Creager,Daewon,Shiloh and others were doing was mind blowing based on what your average pro was doing.
They were breaking new ground daily and it was miles ahead of the rest of the pack, not to mention it looked amazing in comparison.

That was a cement fat square handrail, basically a ledge. Still rad, of course.

i know calling a skateboarder unique is such a cliche but in mariano's case it's so true, that crooks belongs to him. straight of the 90s style on that.

Nope, it's not a good looking trick. Hell, I'd rather watch fakie forward flips.
Besides that, Mariano is the man.

backlipshove whatever criticized the trick and immediately people started to talk shit about him. Im not saying that I agree with him, but is he stupid because he says what he thinks and not what everyone wants to hear?

He single-handedly has the power to make me buy magazines or videos (alas not enough of the latter); I'll get the sidewalk just to see that!

I would love Mariano to be made skater of the year - he deserves it just for how highly he is regarded by anyone who knows good skateboarding when they see it

HAHAHA!!!  I know I looked like that.

Check Koston or Ocean in Next Generation circa 91'.  There was definitely some good stuff in the 90's before the clown era.

I think early 90's ledge skating still has a lot to offer. Imagine if the tricks Guy did on the World ledge in Virtual Reality were done down handrails?

And yes, Noseslide Nosegrind down a handrail has the potential to be ugly in the wrong hands. But it has been left in the right hands.
